THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I think I like previous OP more than the current OP, snd I like current ED more than previous ED.

Even though peace came, guardians still came to pick Tamaki up. It seems like this ep. is summery ep. of season 1. Then at the end it was revealed that the seal was not complete, so Sugita-san's character is still painful.

Preview guy is Sugita-san's character.

Ya, honestly, I thought the previous OP song is better than this one, the same case I had with Rinne no Lagrange from Summer Season.

But anyways, it looks like the series is back again but not such a strong start. Hopefully, it gets better soon.

If they're still going to follow the game story, this is just "calm before the storm". There will be some secrets getting revealed.

I only hope the story won't be rushed too much.

I like the previous opening better than this one. I'm not really sure on what to say at this point since it's a recap epispde. Hope that this season will get better.

I don't care about the sub at the moment, since I can understand Japanese, but I can't find the raw either. D'':

We wait several months for this and 19 of the 24 minutes is basically nostalgia flasbacks and recap of season 1 :( Kind of disappointing in that regard, but at least everything else made up for it.

Opening theme and ending theme are good, and pleasant and the post credits scenes are back. So cheesy yet good.

I think it was good, since it reminds us of what happened before. I had forgotten some things like Aria's role which I remembered, I was happy that it was like that :D

New OP and ED are even better. I'm excited for this season.

Im questioning what this ceremonial offering Baba sama mentioned to Mitsuru is.

I didn't like this episode. I HATE RECAP EPISODES AAARGH. i just wanted the story to go on but no, 90% of that episode were things we already knew, damn.

I like more previous opening than this. And this ending is better than previous one. I hope animation gets better. It was so good in episode 13, but now its crappy again, sry.

So this is basically a recap episode? Well at least I won't have to rewatch the first season.

I, on the other hand, enjoyed the episode. Some of the stuff I have forgotten from the first season so this recap is a refresher for me.

I loved this opening because of all the TakumaxTamaki *,* I hope this season brings some more of that *,*

Recap-Start. Just fantastic.

Please let it be 12-13 episodes this time. I want this nightmare to end.

This was a 26 episodes serie to begin with. It was announced as such before the first season even aired.
I don't remember the reason it was cut into two but that's not a "second season" it's more of a "second part of the first season".

Hey, I totally forgot that.
Well, the episodes do seem to last eternally to me, every time. No wonder I thought there were 26 already.

i LOVE the new OP sequence, has Tamaki x Takuma all over it!!! :)

and starting off slow with mostly recap, but started picking up towards the end heading into the story.
recap's ok though because it gives a good refresh on the events of the first season.
"spiriting away" and the onikirimaru running rampant, can't wait to see where this is headed

also, YESSSSSSS!!!!!!
I'm a guy, but Takuma's ending sequence was AWESOME!!!

I don't like either of the pieces of music for this new season. I had hoped they would keep the first opening theme song and just change the pictures.

Anyways as far as the episode went it was eh to me. Could have been better but it was a recap episode. I am hoping for something better in the next.

whee, recap episode. -_- and in the new OP, TamakiXTakuma all over it. Way to stamp your foot on the fans of the other pairings. -_-

Well it was pretty obvious that everything wasn't resolved, otherwise why would we need a second cour. It was primarily a recap so pretty meh, but it looks like the plot is about to kick into high gear. It also looks like they picked one route (TamakiXTakamu) and are going to follow it to the conclusion. Since I haven't played the game (not in the demographic for it), I have no dog in this hunt, but it seems a pretty reasonable way to approach it. If they explored all the routes and then suddenly made an arbitrary choice the final one or two episodes everyone would complain just as much. If they did it like Amagami SS, it would probably be too long. It is what it is, and if you don't like it there are several other shoujo series this season.
Please don't feed the trolls!

Possibly, but Ryou Kutani hasn't really gotten involved yet - I'm thinking he'll muddy the waters a bit before this is all over.

yeah pretty much. they could of made a pre episode like episode 0 for that, honestly.

And well the seal wasn't complete. and something about spiriting away.
And baba is going to do another ceremonial offering. I wonder what that's about.

And is there a point to the last scene, where one of the male characters talks to the screen?
it's kind of lame. :/ :/

Well waiting for next ep, hopefully it'll make up for it's lack of entertainment in this one. :/

just a summary?
the only new thing is that there is going to be an offer
They aren't gonna offer Takuma, are they?
who is grabbing your heart anyway when your stomach hurts O.o
TakumaxTamaki is the only option to me in this anime
so Takuma don't get hurt too much plzz

I agree. Yeah it was a lot of the episode, but I didn't mind. Got me caught up on what I had forgot.

I know some people enjoy recaps but it's not my cup of cake. Recaps may be useful when you start watching after a year or so gap, but here, it was just meningless.
*tired of fast forwarding to get to new stuff*
But the last 5-6 minutes where niiiiiice. I just hope this "season" will be a bit more fast-paced than the previous one.

I like this OP about the same as the previous one, maybe a little less when it comes to visual aspects but well... as for the ED I prefer the previous one.

Gotta say, this episode, being a recap, didn't start the season off so strong. Plus I like season 1's OP better than this season's OP. However that is not to say that this season' OP is bad. Well, hopefully this season gets better^^

Not this shit again. One episode in and I already want to kill half of the characters!

On the bright side, great OP/ED as usual. Never disappoint.
