THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I don't know if I should start this since there is the niconico event topic (or was that the recap).

Anyway, La Garite is fighting De Metrio so that means Lan versus Muginami. On Earth Madoka is not quite herself. Astelia wants a meeting with La Garite (maybe De Metrio as well) and decides to have it at Kamogawa. This leads to Lan going to see Madoka. Lan wants Madoka to pilot the Vox Aura again, but De Metrio is against it so Muginami rushes in to stop her. Lan and Muginami face off and Madoka gets angry, causing Vox Aura to start up again.

OP and ED are nice. They recycled some scenes in them but Nakajima Megumi is always nice to hear and the ED by the three main seiyuus is catchy.

Oh yeah, apparently Viz Anime is going to simulcast it. I guess it is just a matter of time before fansub groups find out and provide web rips or rip the script and put it on 720p video quality. (Warui already ripped it I believe.)

Yeah Viz came out fast, nothing except some Raws are out. Hopefully Madoka will stop the fighting, but it doesn't look like it'll end nice.


What the...the OP and the ED take a lot of the previous OP/ED scenes. A painful reminder that this show really made little of a profit. Meh, not as good as the first two.

I'm not to fond of this start
as I recall previous season here there was something missing here - for sure it was weaker than it used to be
like turning Madoka into some pre-emo (rest of cast is in similar stage, Lan for sure)... she was far better in her simpleton mode there is still hope she will move back to it

but they made good job in showing La Garite as those not nice people that should be wiped out :3

Woof.

I wonder if the operators of Pharos appreciate the new "door" Madoka made for them.

Hmm. I actually liked the new opener. As for Madoka being different, she's been through a lot and had a year to worry about what was happening to her friends - seemed right to me.

Rinne no Lagrange returns after a seasons break. Finally!

Also new OP song.

Well, as for the pilot episode of Season 2, it's not too impressive. However, it was entertaining and relaxing to watch. Lan's return to the series brings out back that nostalgic feeling back from the Winter Season especially with her "woof". There seems to be drama going around this episode especially between Lan and Muginami.

~cliffhanger.

Well, this series does not disappoint tbh and I liked this episode. Summer's definitely here and time to cool with this Jersey Club :D

Episode was maru. Loved it. Love the new OP as well even though it is not as good as Try Unite (yet). New ED will take some getting used to though.

Finally it's back! Been waiting for this. Loved the first season. The first episode was great. But I wonder why are Lan and Muginami fighting. Looking forward to next episode.

Dont like the new OP & ED. Didn't like how Lan and Madoka reunited. Felt too rushed and somewhat silly. Aside from that, it was pretty good.

It's too late to stop Madoka to ride Aura again, lol they fighting again and Madoka have to stop them again.

Intense. I love that it's finally back.

I hope the fight between Lan and Mugi get's resolved. It was very sad to see them fighting like that.

oh yeah, I'm all in for that.

It's been only 2 months since I watched the first season and I already can't remember what happened O_o
Originally I didn't even plan to watch the second season. Only picked this up on a whim since there was no Saki this week and I needed something to watch now.

Oh boy, I think I should re-watch season one, I forgot too much stuff about the politics and all those terms.

How dare her brother do that to Lan, he is an asshole, remember how he killed all those people in season one?

YAY! My favourite shoujo ai couple, Lan/Madoka, of win... wait... I mean... mecha of winter season is back. Now, I'll get even more reasons to always think of shoujo ai when I hear Madoka. Anyway, the start was interesting but kinda... I dunno... I thought we got over the Lan vs. Muginami fight in the first season. Hopefully, we're not back there, it would be a big step back story wise. (The only Lan vs. Muginami I approve of is over Madoka. :-P)

Anyway, yay for Lan/Madoka... no, that's not it... yay for awesome air fights! But I wonder why Muginami has such cool stuff (the cape/shield and laser staff) while Lan has nothing special. I want Lan-chan to kick ass not Muginami. :-( Aside form that, I look forward to more explanation about Vox and Flower of Rinne.

Finally Madoka is back!!
It's really great to see this Anime again i was wondering what would happen after the last season and now we can fins out.
It's was a long wait but seems to have been one worth it.
It also seems that Lan's planet is the bad guy this time and it also seemed to me they where after Madoka.
And it probably also has something to do with the experiments they where conducting on Lan .

Murginami and Lan fighting...

In the last episode of season 1 Muginami choose to save Lord Vilajulio What's His Name and left with his retreating forces. That immediately put her on the other side from the faction represented by Lan and her brother, with whom they are at war. Add to the mix that Muginami is afraid of what will happen to Madoka if she pilots a Vox again and Lan mistaking this for hostile intentions, since she never really did learn to trust Muginami. Mix in manipulative/double dealing/dishonest brothers, advisers, politicians, etc, and I'd be surprise if they were NOT trying to kill each other again.

I'm not fond of the new opening/ending songs or sequences and the episode itself was rather average. At least the story is pushing forward!

I feel the 1st OP has a lot more energy and excitement compared to the new OP. No "MARU!" in the new OP as well. Waiting eagerly for the next episode since I saw the pre-air already.

I'm a bit confused. What the hell got into Muginami? Why is she trying to kill Madoka all of a sudden? I though she wasn't siding with Vilagulio anymore. I'm really wondering what happened between them. Can't wait to find out next week. Get inbetween them Madoka!

Loved the episode, new OP/ED's are okay - but not amazing.

I believe Muginami is tryng to stop Lan from forcing Madoka to pilot Aura again - and I'm on her side. I don't want any of them going through what Lan was, testing and bearing that much pain...

Wan indeed. It wasn't the best of starts to a second cour I've ever seen, but it brought the three girls back together in the end. Next episode it looks like Papa Madoka gonna hafta slap some bitches back in line. They've gotten rather unruly without her around.

In all seriousness I'm not too happy with Lan right now. She 'abandons' Madoka like she did, and when she does finally comes back all she can think about is getting Madoka back in Midori so I'm assuming she can please her brother. I hope there's more to this situation than that. From what was shown it definitely looks like Muginami's been more concerned with Madoka herself in the year absence.

Op and Ed were great. Not better or worse than the last cour, and definitely very catchy.

WAN IS BACK! Oh God, that was lovely. I wonder if the preview was a nod towards the yuri fans out there.

A solid first episode, I'm glad the crew is back together, I expect them to make up soon and realize they were in some kind of misunderstanding. 4/5.

I prefer the S1 opening, and while the ED was funny and nice (I love it when they have the cast sing them), I won't really listen to it more.

Great start there, i think i didn't forget any important facts from season one, but that recap episode would be a good thing to watch before moving on with next episodes.
After seeing how Dizelmine really is, and his actions from season 1, i'm betting he'll be revealed to be actual main bad guy of this season. I just wonder if he has any more complicated plans or he just want so utilize full Vox power and use it to destroy De Metrio. Madoka with Aura are needed for that as well, thus Lan came to try and scout her to join Le Garite.
Also i'm pretty sure Muginami doesn't want to kill Madoka, she wants to prevent her piloting Aura for Le Garite. Lan still doesn't trust Muginami though so it's natural for her to assume Maginami wants to kill Madoka.

Jaajibu Damashii!

I was waiting for this with excitement and I'm not disappointed so far.

This first episode was somewhat dynamic, but I liked it.

But, wait. Muginami trying to kill Madoka? No, there must be something to this.

Anyway, I'm glad there is a second season.

Loved the reuniting of Lan and Madoka, you could see that Lan went through a lot of pain and that the hug was like a total relieve for her. Also Madoka lighted up immediately when she saw Lan.

Muginami is an ass, like always. She's getting on my nerves, seriously.

And also: Lan's brother is a fucking douche, I wish I could punch him. How does he even dare doing this to Lan. He's destroying her, what a fucktard.

I'm so glad the 2nd season is finally airing!

New OP is decent. On the other hand, the ED is so incredibly annoying. As for the episode, it was alright. For me, it just felt a little too, I don't know underwhelming compared to the previous season's ending. Characters pick up almost exactly where they left off with a minor time skip, but with absolutely zero intensity. And the more dark underlying themes seem to be gone. Hopefully, the next episode gives a clearer picture of what's going on and thrusts us back into the drama.

Welcome back Rinne i've missed you. Enjoyable episode, Lan reuniting with Madoka was a touching moment and it seems a lot has gone on in that one year gap.

A bit depressing, but I'm afraid it makes sense with politics and intrigues being like they have been.

Madoka really needs to take control and knock her harem into shape - it hurts to see the three of them like this. Well, it's still 11 episodes and I'm sure there will be some good times, too.

Bliss ^^ I guess he's completely fused with that maid outfit by now :-P

Btw. - am I the only one who likes the ED? It's so upbeat and summery :-)

WHAT IS GOIN ON?!

Lan & Muginami are now hating/fighting each other now?!

I guess this could be an another My-HiME for me.

PS - I've been waiting for this new episode for a long time. NO wonder why they skipped the last scene into an epilogue from last ep (EP12) wondering what happened.

Nice episode, although the OP and ED are very budget-like.
I guess this show will sell ever worse than it did with season 1 because Muv-Luv is way better imo.
It's fun to watch so why not?

This was an ok ep, looks like some things have changed a lot. And I like the way they start off the season with Muginami and Lan fighting each with Madoka joining in so they can settle their problems. Tbh I am on Muginami's side, I really don't like Lan's brother and since Lan is on his side, I hope she loses. Well they will probably all become friends again soon enough.
