THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That was amusing. Episode started with Tomeo being a badass as usual. Really great to see the characters back though. And right now, I think the OP song is pretty catchy. The episode imo was cute though especially at the end there with the pat on the head

>Perfect synched parade.
Gotta love that embrace <3

I found this scene cute near the end:

yeeii!! Finally it started! The opening scene gave some impact. I want to learn more about the other guy and why Tomoe disappeared like that. In the OP the only fun thing was the Mamorou dancing before transforming lol
The episode overall was good. Nice 1st episode.

Honestly saying, this episode felt so rushed. I had rather high expectations for this new season, but that opening sequence alone was a turn-off. It was BORING, actually, in comparison to the first season's opening which had a slightly catchier song but had more sense in the stuff going on. And while we're on that topic---WTF WAS GOING ON IN THIS EPISODE. The animation hasn't improved, the slapstick comedy can get out of place and ANNOYING AS HELL, and transitions between SIMPLE ACTIONS and SCENES don't work. Heck, even the romantic moments between Tomoe and Nanami MADE ME SHIVER. Please, PLEASE tell me that they didn't seriously expect to 'woo' the fans with this FIRST EPISODE.

...bah. At least Akura-Oh was in there. What a dreamboat~

Totally agree! I hope we see (and hear because I love Suwabe Junichi's voice) a lot of Akuraou/Kirihito in this series! And I can't wait to see Jirou and other tengu! Little down about Kayako not included in anime plot, but I can live with that. So overall, first ep was a wonderful opening of a new season! *(^o^)*

Nobu's character appeared early! I thought he won't appear as much this season!

lol @ calling that onee god "oji-san, obasan". Shikigami, huh. Oh, it's the monkey from the PV. Training to be useful to go to Izumo is hard with Tsuchigumo. With her giving the monkey the name, his power to purify is given so they can help Tomoe. She finally passed it.

OP and ED are both nice.

By the way, I'm surprised at early posts (3 hours ago). Did you watch pre-air ver? I watched on live-streaming, so it was the official TV broadcast time.

2:35 next, delay so soon?

You pass!

Lovely first episode. Lots of Tomoe and Nanami scenes.

It was a fast first episode but it's purpose was satisfied. Reintroduce the overall theme, introduce the arc coming up, new characters, and, most importantly, the relationship parameters of Tomoe and Nanami.

Nice to see this back :D I wonder how far in the manga they're gonna be going this season :3

Felt slightly fast paced so could they be planning to go to the Tomoe flashback arc?
Well Akuraou/Kirihito is already shown and from the pv looks like he'll play a main role so should be fun ^^

TomoexNanami Romance was cute as usual <3 Tomoe's already so much in love XD. Art looks fresh and the lines seem thicker than S1. Looking nice :)

Nice OP & ED too. Reminded me of S1 which I liked quite a lot :3

If I hadn't read the manga I would say it's a very satisfying episode. It actually is, lot of things happened in it, maybe too much even. It felt nice seeing Tomoe, Nanami and Mizuki animated again. But did they change Onikiri's and Kotetsu's voice actors? I liked the previous ones. I'm really satisfied with the opening and ending too. The opening is cute as hell, I'm glad they kept the same singer.

But, I've read the manga and this episode was so damn rushed. I don't remember how long the test took to Nanami in the manga, but it was so much longer and I was really surprised they


Overall, I really liked the episode and how it started immediately.

Ah~ A great start to the second season.
Liked the OP and ED - especially how they put it together (Tomoe, Kurama, and Mizuki dancing like that :3)

And Nanami passes! Good job~
Mamoru's so cute.

Tomoe looks like he's going to be regaining some memories there.
Can't wait to see that.

This first episode disappointed me. Why they decided to rush this arc and
I hope they just really wanted to start with the next arc and this was just a one-time thing. (At least it got a second season so I can't be ungrateful haha)

Ignoring the manga this episode is okay. Love seeing the characters animated again. I like the new OP. Gonna miss the 'ah ah ah' though. More Akura-ou next episode!

I already expected that one character won't be included in this season. She's important, but the decision to cut her off from the start must be due to budget; her screen time might have been also taken to issue, and how far they want to adapt. They'll be paying more people with the later arcs. Sadly, this also means less animation quality for some episodes. The other arcs will require more details and budget for them.

The ED is sadder than the one before. It will take some getting used to, but the sequence was really nice.

I like how goofy the OP is on the other hand. Lol all those dancing.

A lot of stuff happened during this episode, I'm not surprised manga readers found it rushed. I still enjoyed a lot, I even stopped studying when I saw it was out.

I'm happy they cut out the 'rival' and took this kinda faster pace with the Nanami needing to hatch/raise the Shikigami part of the plot... it actually didn't feel rushed in my opinion..

Ahh I'm gonna melt all over again with Tomoe and his "confused feelings" *wink*wink*

that annoyed me too, the latter keeps up the pace but it's not attractive

but I'm happy it's back.

Right into season 2 and it's a very nice start. Nanami learned a new skill with her Shikigami and will probably even more useful now :D And the Nanami x Tomoe moments are still the best :)

Very good, like the last season. Good way to start off this new season of anime!

I totally expected her to name it Mamoru (to protect) haha.

The new ED is so good! I also like the OP. c:

Tomoe was so cool! haha I had forgotten how cute Tomoe and Nanami were together. Also, Mamoru was too adorable. I have super high hopes for this season!! So, I'm guessing there's going to be some stuff involving Tomoe's brother?? Definitely looking forward to next week's episode :D

Yes! Great first episode, definitely one of my favorite shoujo series.

The male character in the beginning seems very troublesome. Also, the shikigami is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Lots of nice Nanami x Tomoe moments too. Op and Ed songs are nice as well.

I might be invalid but all I was thinking throughout this episode was "Too much Shoujo, not enough comedy".

That said, I am a bit disappointed in this episode as I remember laughing my ass off every week in the first season.

Cute start to a new season.
As a manga reader, it felt a tad bit rushed,
but I really enjoyed it anyway.

I love the visuals for the OP and the ED is nice as well.
Can't get enough of Tomoe <3
Anticipating the next ep!
