Hmm, I think I like this OP song as it has quite a lot of well-animated choreography in it.

The episode was okay, more concentration on stuff behind the scenes with the some of the Blue Clan's plans. I think the pacing slowed down a bit. Kinda glad to see Kuro is still very relevant this season though. Not sure how I feel about JUNGLE yet despite the fact that it seems to be a community group...

Anna is also taking quite an active role as a leader now.

3rd time seeing white king falling down (1- end of movie, 2- end of 1st ep. of this series). It seems like OP is showing it's red queen's song (not just because the fact that the singer also voices red queen).

OnoD's character (somehow in his first season outfit) was called to talk with blue king... More info. about green team. Also showing scene from the movie because one of green team and OnoD's character fought before. Blue king wanted him to join him before he left, and got refused, so he ordered Mamo's character to follow him. Wow, that food looks weird (should I say gross?), especially that member who knows ex and current blue kings eatiing with bare hand (wait, that voice... ex-red king's voice?).

Neko with red team. She thinks that she saw white king through red queen's pearl. Red also talks about green team. Red queen remembering about what she told ex red king about the power is for protecting others, with KajiKaji's character, so she's going to use the power the same way. lol @ Neko's description to her "liking" to OnoD's character. Neko, too, got invited to join red team (by FukuJun's character), but refused. The both of them have the same thought, to wait for their master.

ED is cool. Though, why the hell with the fanservice with Sawashiro-san's character again in one of the scenes (not as bad as first ep.)?

26:10 next (delaying a bit again). Real battle begins next, it seems.

I really love the ending and opening animations! Still sad about Angela not singing I hope she at least has an insert.

Neko and Anna being friends warms my heart. <3

Yay, exposition episode. And most of it completely pointless (as it was shown in episode 1 and in the movie, how many times you can show same thing?) or repeated over and over again (I really didn't need to hear twice every bit of information. EVERY) and definitely lazy. Even if they wanted exposition it could've been done so much better than just talking all the time. Also they basically summarised the all of prequel novels, mangas, movies and even season 1. Brilliant. Just briliant. *sarcasm all over the place*

I know that after season one there were lot's of people complaining that they didn't understand the anime (although I don't get what was so difficutl about it, season 1 was perfectly clear for me), but now they're giving totally over the top explanation which just pisses me off. This anime has 12 episodes planned, if I'm correct and they already wasted two of them on NOTHING. Such a disapointment.

Of course, there are some pros. There was way less fanservice (Hallelujah!), the animation was less 3D than last time (Let's praise the... whoever you praise) and was very nice, and generally the episode was very pleasing to the eye. But total lack of plot is ridiculous!'

Also: still no Shiro. If not for the next ep PV I would think that Shiro is going to jump from the sky at least once per episode (he's done it 3 times already) and then is goint to finally appear in episode 11... Great. Goold job, K, good job. *so sarcastic*

Episode was chill. I like the opening of s1 more, but this one is nice. Next episode looks to be epic.

How long does it take to fall down from the sky. Shiro is really taking his time there.

But right now I am scared... the high school episodes will come back! Nooo!

As for the episode itself. There sure was a lot of talking there. Shiro inside Horuma was quite refreshing but Kuro and Munataka's conversation was a recap of what we already knew about the greens, pretty pointless unless someone didn't watch the movie, or don't remember it. For me who watched the movie one week ago when first ep appeared, I pretty much knew all from that conversation. The saving grace of that conversation was that beautiful OST that they put in there, my favourite K ost from first season!

Then there is new blue team important character, or at least he seems that he will have some role in general scheme.

They once again teased Mikoto in flashback, just to remind everyone how great of character he was and how great his storyline from season one was.

OP and ED were great. I didn't expect the OP to focus on Anna so much but I liked it still.

The preview of the next shows the hope that the high school episode won't be that boring but we are still on episode 2 so it will take a while before the story pick ups.

Was i the only one to notice Neko's wearing any?
There was plenty Neko's bare ass this episode...
I don't expect justice. I expect revenge, even if it solves nothing in the end.
I don't expect redemption. I expect decadence and self destruction.
I don't expect compassion. I expect selfishness.
I don't expect people making choices. I expect a cruel fate forced upon them.

It's been 2 episodes and all Shiro has done is fall from the sky.

Good to see Kuroh's season 1 look back, I didn't like his hair down or his other clothes.

I like the ED a lot more than the OP, everything about it is GOAT

Lots of dialogue in this episode but it was fun and sweet for the most part. I especially enjoyed hearing about the former Red and Blue Kings as well as the stuff with the guy with one hand..... I would LOVE to see that stuff

Going by the next epside PV, things are about to get crazy and finally Shiro returns so I can't wait

Yeah I was like what the and why. But I don't there was that much of it, the only other fanservicey part I noticed was her boobs bouncing when she stood up and said something to Anna.

Anyways, once again, we barely learn anything. The JUNGLE thing was sort of already self-explanatory I think, after watching both the movie and the first episode. We also already knew that the low ranks never saw the Green King, so the information was repetitive. I don't mind episodes where nothing much happens, because usually those are good for character development or even just characterization, but we already know these characters quite well, and learned nothing more about them in this episode. Nice to see Totsuka in the flashback though, he's still my favorite character in this series, despite being deceased and having very little screen time.

I liked the ED, I think it's more fitting to be the OP, they should've switched it. The OP centered around Anna, and usually EDs are the ones to focus on a single character. Or I guess they could be saying that Anna is the real main character in the sequel, but...I highly doubt it.

... So the cliffhanger of Yashiro jumping off the blimp(?) from the end of episode 1 is still not answered? That is to say: where will he land? >.<

The preview looks like we'll find out next episode at least...

OP is nice, but the ED sounds more thrilling. Episode was mostly interactions between Silver and the two main clans. Wished for some action to start, but I suppose having this wasn't bad.

I will admit there was pretty much 0 progression in that episode.. the bit with the previous hand to the previous blue king was kinda cool, but other than that, ehh..

Op/Ed are decent..

I really hope they're not going to drag on Shiro's coming back for too much longer, its getting kinda annoying at this point as seemingly he's been on his way back since the end of the movie lol. Maybe he'll appear once those high ranking green clansmen start kicking their asses at the school at the end of the next ep.

The whole episode I was waiting for Shiro to appear. I was so disappointed. I feel betrayed.....

When is he going to appear. From the looks of the movie I thought he was going to appear from the start. But no, we have to wait 3 episodes now. And by the looks of the trailer, it seems that he's going to show up at the end of episode 3. I can't wait anymore. I feel like jumping around now

The OP was nice. JUNGLE's ranking system sounded cool. Not sure what they are trying to do though. And one of the sad thing about this episode was that it had no action scenes. But it doesn't matter. Anyway it was really an awesome episode.

--> Anko? Red bean dessert

Seems like both Neko and Seri had a sudden boobs transplant sometime during the one year time skip. They look bigger (and bouncier like custard pudding) than in the first season. I don't know how the male viewer felt watching it, but personally I think they make both charas look deformed. *shrugs*

Anyway, I like this episode better, the scenes ties and flows quite well. Half expecting Shiro to have landed but instead we're shown the same scene from the movie for the third time. Next time, for sure... I hope he lands on the exact same spot like in s1

OMG just show Shiro already I was waiting too the whole episode and nothing just him falling from the sky. My god I have to wait another week and then they might just show him at the end. Just give us Shiro.

Much better than the first episode. Especially like how much Anna's coming along as the Red King (should we be calling her King?) And how Neko and Kuroh still stick around the school.

ugh, still no shiro. looks like he'll show up next ep. though

that whole bit with anna & misaki was really cheesy. i cringed while watching it

not much happen this episode, its like a calm before the storm kind of episode, but at least Shiro will show up next episode it seems

From what i've noticed from this episode, while it does have a lot of repeated information from the first season and novels and such, i think they might be doing this in order to make up for the first season and how rushed they made it before. I think that while it might be slow and repetitive, they might be trying to learn from their mistakes from the first season and not create another season that's very rushed with little character development, or at least that's what I think. They might just be trying to give a base solid ground to work in hopes of fewer mistakes this time.

Other than that, i also think the character development is really strong here, and in more than just Anna. She is stepping up to the plate more now, and it's great and can't wait for more. But what I realised about this episode was that in the flash back with Totsuka and Mikoto, Totsuka once again told Mikoto that his power should be used for protection of precious things to him. While Mikoto couldn't quite follow Totsuka's teaches as well as Totsuka probably had hoped, they DID rub off onto another person. Anna. Anna, instead of following Mikoto's path of destruction, I think this episode was also meant to show that she had listened to Totsuka, although the words had not been directed to her at the time. She is taking the roll of using her power to protect instead of destroy, and the losses of Mikoto and Totsuka is only strengthening her resolve for that. And within that, Totsuka's teaching also rub off in the way that Anna and Neko become friends. Instead of fighting with another clansmen, Anna is trying her best to make friends instead, despite clan differences. She is overlooking that, and seeking for friendship instead, which doesn't seem to be very common among rival clans due to Yata's reaction.

I also liked how Yata got a little development as well. He finally realized that his fawning over Mikoto was very shallow. he didn't understand the person who he was paying so much attention to, and he finally noticed it for himself. Judging by that, and the first episode where Yata tried to thank Saruhiko for helping him find Anna in the Missing Kings, Yata is already showing promising signs of maturity, and I cant wait to see more. ^^

A more chill episode this time around, but it looks like Shiro will show up next episode so I guess the anime will start to pick things up a little.

Almost forgot to mention, I liked the ED a lot more than the OP. Usually it's the other way around for me, but the ED actually feels like it should be the OP instead of the actual OP.

The new PV that revealed on kingrecords channel right after airing of this ep. revealed the main thing that would happen to this season (and like the preview indicates, white king will finally be back and real fight would begin soon). The new PV has already updated on Fall 2015 Preview.

Oh god damnit shiro could you please fall down from the sky faster. Forget those fabulous air maneuvers and just torpedo bomb back to earth.

That said this was a refreshing episode. Neko and Anna moments were so heart warming. Misaki being completely tsun is fun to watch.
Man that Icecream banana looked delicious AF.

Next episode we finally hopefully will get to see Shiro but I place my money that he appears at the very last second.
The Art of Shipping is no mere game. It can be small skirmishes to huge nation size wars.
Of course some will claim their ship is the BATTLESHIP but they all do. This is why battles occur because of factions fighting each other to justify their favourite ship.
And thus SHIP to SHIP combat occurs almost anytime even now.
Beware, Threading into the Shipping battlefield will be bloody.... What are you waiting for?

ending > opening

shiro was falling from the sky at the begining, he prolly landed already and doing god knows what, while stuff from this ep was happening.

episode was really slow paced. first ep was kinda all over the place, and i like that they slowed down (maybe lil too much lul) but, i still enjoyed it coz K<3

looks like next one will be a blast.
