Finally here! Though nothing significant happened in this first episode (not like the super explosive ep of the 1st season) I see something interesting in next episode.

Hex seems to be loco a lot too XD

Fucking loved it. Hex reminds me of a much more saner & modern version of Illythia from Spartacus.Hex seems like the coolest antagonist of the series so far. Better than Chinatsu IMO.

The OP is not nearly as good as first season's OP. Really expected more coming from the artist who sung the godly ED for Hellsing: Ultimate OVA 9. The current OP is still good though.

While it wasn't a big thing i was kinda hoping Hex would result to torture over being a whore to get information, just would have made a better image as a ruthless antagonist than someone who would do anyone for info, well w/e she is still easily the best antagonist this series has had so far.

Im starting to wonder if Koko is using Jonah as her conscience. Here's my reasoning

Koko hits her breaking point after losing her first bodyguard (the one R replaces)

She develops her plan for so called "world peace" (has to do with rocket launch given Jonah's inference)

As her plan develops, she slowly realizes the ramifications of what she is doing and who she is becoming. This is justified by R's comment about Koko being startled when called a dragon in season one.

Koko becomes split. Torn between her original intentions of carrying out her plan and stopping part way through to stay human (think Lelouch from Code Geass after the Battle of Narita)

Koko's way of coping with these conflicting feelings is through Jonah. She believes that Jonah's child innocence will keep her human despite her plan turning her into a monster. In other words, Jonah will prevent her from becoming a monster so she does not have to worry about losing herself while she carries out her plans. This would explain Jonah's importance to Koko.

Yeah! Koko and the crew are back!

Damn. I wanna know now what is the nasty plot going on between Dr. Minami and Koko.

Love the rage face of Karen and Valmet.

Also, love the new woman, Hex.
Using her body to get information. Just can't help but love her.
Cannot wait for her to battle it out with Koko.

Hex is awesome and dangerous.

I liked dialogue and scenes this episode along with the new tracks in the OST(including the ending theme) a lot.

I honestly didn't expect the first episode to be this good.

That scene w/ Sex *ahem* Hex-- WTF!? For a CIA operative (or whosoever's in on the intel/operation) that dude sure talks way too fast! Man, savor the moment-- let the bitch do some actual work! XD

I'd say enough w/ the subtlety. Give me the bloodbath that I signed up watching this series for. Either Koko croaks or the whole world. I wouldn't settle for less.

@Lil_Wayne

Props to you and your theory, but I believe Koko is merely grooming/educating/whitewashing Jonah as she has much bigger plans in store for him rather than a mere bodyguard cum conscience/savior. Also, she's already a monster as it is-- I just can't imagine she's that stupid to even think she still can be saved.

A bit heavy on exposition, but definitely had a few nice moments (Hex especially, she overshadowed R by a mile). I laughed when I heard the preview song, good thing they didn't change that. 4/5 hoping for quite some action this season as well.

This was a really good opening episode, introducing what appears to be an excellent antagonist in Hex, while also familiarizing the story and characters once again.

Koko and Jonah are terrific characters, and, as such, their interactions remain the strongest element of the show. The brief moment in which Jonah speculated on what Minami and Koko were discussing, while also mentioning how they appeared distinctly threatening and sinister was the best sequence of the episode. It will be interesting to see how significant that bit of foreshadowing will result in being as the story progresses, since it could certainly signify the potential for a direct conflict to arise between Jonah and Koko.

The music, as always, was superb. The OP was pretty great. The ED was decent, but nowhere close to the brilliance of the previous one.

All in all, Jormungand continues with a very good introductory episode, and I'm really looking forward to the involvement of the remaining cast and the development of narrative, as it's thoroughly intriguing.

It's suppose to be a French rap song, as noted in gg's translation notes here. I guess will have to wait for the OST to clarify the title (if it's included).

Anyway.. ah poor Karen. At least she works for Dr.Minami now, and the professor sure talks fast a lot. I laughed so hard when she met Karen, and Karen could even make a reply when she began talking. It's understandable though since she's obviously depressed about the events last season. Dr.Minami's ninja plush toy reminded me so much of Bonta-kun from Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, he's cute but he's also armed and he'll kick you ass! LOL

HCLI should probably do NASA contracts too seeing they've got good records on space delivery as well but I guess it's more lucrative on the shady, black market side. XD

So R is really an active CIA double agent? I know it was already shown explicitly last season but I didn't know he was that deep. I get the feeling he'll be offed somehow in the future. X_X

The new OP and ED will take sometime getting used too, since my head automatically replaced the OP with "Borderlands".XD I'm glad the music for the preview is still the same, I missed it. "Her name is Koko, she is loco! I said oh no!" LOL

Looks like it's getting serious and grim with this season
Dr. Miami is even weirder than Koko
Recruiting Karen seemed odd as well I thought she would join Hex to take re revenge
It's interesting with R's part in this

Aaaaaand finally Hex is introduced! Damn I've been looking forward to her appearance!

To be honest, I would actually love to see her catch Koko, because I want to see how Koko would react in such a situation. I mean, the woman seems pretty fearless (though it might be a mask?), and so far she hasn't shown any signs of feeling threatened despite the countless life-and-death situations they end up in.

Also, I miss the old OP, it was more catchy :<

Great first episode for the second season.
It seems that this season (current arc) will be a lot more interesting than the first season('s arcs).
Next episode will have action so I'm looking forward to more.

Oh! yeah Coco loco is back and as crazy and dange3rus as ever along with a new enemy that seems to be every bit as scary as her.
I swear the women in this show are more like dangerous snakes than women.

Well the new OP is decent enough with nice scenes although the song can't compete with Borderland at all.

Anyway so why is this Hex woman so keen on taking Koko's head even if it means going against another powerful officer of her own organization(CIA).
Are we now gonna have inside CIA battles between officers with deferment agendas?
Btw, Hex's last words about breaking something that will make Koko feel hurt and then the camera ending in Johan seems ominous for his future. Dying is not an option since his a main but i suspect a lot of hard times ahead. Or maybe she will simply turn him against Koko. I guess that will hurt her the most.

Oh yeah! We also finally learned what Jormungand really is. That satellite network.

Haha I was thinking the same. What a waste. But the guy probably didn't know if to pee his pants or take them off. Hex is as scary as she's hot.

Temporary DROP for me.
As for the episode it self 4/5.


She doesn't become a whore, she is a whore, is different :P . No ethics, and no morality to torturing and murdering to get information and you think that she has a problem with sex to get information... Torturing is dirtier and unworthy than getting information with sex so far.


I don't think she even needed to take a single piece of cloth off considering how scared that guy was of her. She probably did it just for the hell of it, she probably just felt like teasing him.
