THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Great new OP and ED, but the eps are as short as ever... It was a pretty strange way to start the new season but I guess there was no other option, and the 13 mins of new content were still good.

Anyway, hopefully this season doesn't have as much fillers as the first, or if they do, make a filler arc instead of multiple episodic fillers...

Kinda slow episode, but it was needed after the events that occured in the last ep of season one. I like the new OP and ED.

I don't think there will be any fillers this season. Even the title implies that it will be about the "Reverse", so there shouldn't be any. The manga is currently at ch. 42 and the first anime only adapted 17 of it, so there is enough material too.

hehe hes as a big of a crybaby as ever. certainly a lot has happened in this episode. Niche has lost her confidence too.

i liked the first season's opening and ending, but i suppose they cant use them twice.

new opening and ending are nice. though I think some scenes in the OP are a bit spoilerish XD but at least it shows where season 2 is intended to go to in terms of manga coverage.

The opening and ending weren't as good as they were in the first season but everything else is still as amazing.


I am proud to have Clannad as the only thing on my dropped list.

MAL ate my post =(

anyway, I'm glad they started where they left off. a lot of season 2's start in a random place, and then have like a 1 min flashback explaining the connection.

however, I don't think the 5min of repeated content was all that necessary, even if it's to remind you what happened if you haven't seen it for half a year XD

though I guess they did want to make it so that the ep ended where it did to have Niche's story start next ep. But they cut Gauche's flashback memory sequence short...

hehe Sylvette and Lag are having a crying contest again. I kinda feel sorry for the voice actors, having to voice crying all the time XD

The new shows keep popping out, I can't keep up D:

I missed this show. The start was a good refresher. They picked up where they left off with the first season. Liked the OP and ED. Niche and Steak are still as funny and adorable as ever. Sylvette is as cute as ever. Lag is still a crybaby though. Needs more Roda though XD. Hope this gets on with the story about the Reverse and how Gauche(FukuJun looks busy this season) lost his heart. Maybe I should read the manga.

Wow, Roda is hot. Really hot. And Gauche, too, although I always had a thing for him.
Now anyways, it started nicely, I don't like the new OP & ED too much, though. I'm pretty sure it'll be as good as the last season too or even better. Looking forward to it!
Tell me how it feels, breaking down the old walls.

OP and ED were mesmerizing <3
Other than that, the episode was a bit on the slow side. I like how it started though, with an emotional scene. Looking forward to this season of Tegami Bachi, it's one of my favourite manga :3

I really doubt Lag is going to stop crying anytime soon. His name is derived from the Spanish word "lagrima" for tears for crying out loud.

But then I found his little cry with Sylvette to be more amusing than annoying. Just gonna accept it as one of his quirks.

The op and ed of previous season was better.
So, this season will be more about Gauche which I am looking forward to.
Please no filler this season we've had enough.
Wow Roda is hot....and Jiggy Pepper too. Surprisingly the entire cast of LB was shown this episode.
Lag and Sylvet's crying scene was cute.
Next episode 'underwear and bread' XD

I've been restraining myself not to read past chapter 17 in order to have all that excitement when the next ep comes out, but I've spoiled myself already anyway :3

Anyway, if it's gonna stick to manga, then it's gonna be one helluva story. But technically all the 'fun' in manga is only starting, at least in my opinion.

And everyone! They showed everyone right in the first ep! The new season kinda makes me very happy^^

Dr Thunderland, Lloyd, Jiggy, Zazie! Yay! Gosh, I've missed them all and the whole Tegami Bachi world so much.

And it's also fun how they manage to make fun of those moments when both Lag and Sylvette are crying xD

I'm really hoping that with the return of Gauche, this show will find a story of some sort and not be swallowed up by fillers. But Niche was extra cute in this first episode :D

OP's so much better than first season's OP. It's Stereopony after all : D
Sup Jiggy Pepper. Being cool as always? Mkay.
I so hope this'll hold true to the manga.

And it's been so long since a chapter in the manga, so... I'd kind of forgotten all that crying xD Oh wait... I've missed 2 chapters? That explains it D:

Pretty good ED, not as good as Himeka's ED for the first season though.

Also, moar Aria kthnx. Speaking of which, will we be getting some
Right? : D

Yay~ This is the show I was most looking forward to and the first episode didn't disappoint. My only complaint is that it felt too short, I was surprised when it was already over D: Though it's my fault for forgetting the slow pace in the anime. Well like someone else said the 'fun' is just starting and I can't wait for more :3

I think that all the episodes seem short, sometimes the slow pace really does
drive me insane, but usually the waiting is worth it. c:

All i have to say is it's good to see that it will remain the same old show we know and love. Also can't wait to find out the details behind what happened to Gauche, I had a theory that it was some amberground brainwashing thing but that was blown out of the water right off the bat :(


It won't give up it wants me dead god damn this noise inside my head

Oh my Gauche...I mean, Noir!!! This season seems pretty interesting, just as the manga! Filler even made me drop the first one D: And that's something unusual for me

Oh, it's great we get to see Jiggy Pepper at the beginning there. :D He's one of my favourites in this show.

Hm, so it seems that when Gauche/Noir shot Lag with his shindan, Lag ended up with some of Noir's memories. So why doesn't Lag find a way to compile everyone's "heart" and shoot it into Gauche? He gets their memories of him, and he remembers. Problem solved. Or does getting shot with a shindan do something to you healthwise? (I know that shooting one uses up heart and if you do it too much you lose yourself, like what happened with Gauche. But what about the reverse? What happens if you get shot with a lot of shindans?)

I hope the second season has more mystery and intrigue rather than episodic stories like last season. And less Lag crying, please. (Seriously, he cried in every fucking episode of the first season and more than twice in this ep -- although the latter is understandable.)

Finally here is the second season which I've been waiting for :D
I think this was a decent first episode, we got a little review of storyline and a rare occasion for Jiggy Pepper to appear and actually talk also came finally. I kind of feel nostalgic now since the first season started one year ago, but I'm really glad that Lag still a cute little crybaby as well as Silvette.
Can't wait for the next episode~

OHMYGOSHIT'S FINALLYHEREEEE! <3333

I have been anxiously awaiting this moment for months and it was so awesome! <3
New OP is love. Niche's attempts to cheer Lag up were really adorable, just like the part where Lag and Sylvette cried together. I've got the feeling that this season is gonna be a LOT better than the first one.

Also, we got some Jiggy screentime! That's been a while. =D
OP and ED sequence are full of Gauche! <3

AND OMFG THE ED IS DONE BY PIKO! <3 I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HE HAD DEBUTED!
PIKOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. <333

My god I have missed Niche and Steak so much! As much as I enjoy Letter Bee, the show would drop a few points without them. This episode was a great reminder of everything I loved about the first season. It's a fantastic mix of characters, action, emotion, and comedy. Can't wait for more.

Also, from ANN's fall preview guide (not actual spoilers):

It's still amazing... it doesn't matter how many time I watch first season and read manga, I still love it, and still feel like I will cry with Lag ^^''

And, even if I read manga, I'm still worried about Gauche.

For all that is good in this world, I sincerely hope the second season is more story driven. The atmosphere, art, and the fact that this is a different type of shonen instantly drew me in to the series, sure, but a major flaw of the first season was how it mostly felt like filler.

But anyway, off to a good start, I'd say.

As usual, the episodes are too short... T_T

I didn't realize how much I'd missed this show until I started watching the episode. It looks like it's going to be really plot driven this time around, and is that an older Lag I see in the ED? *_*
