yeah..good that most of the cast is back but changing that was like changing this shows biggest strong point besides the visuals hopefully they get as much screentime this season.

So we are getting new main characters, huh. I hope they will have at least 30% of the coolness of the old ones. At least we'll see the old folks. Least FAVAROOOOOOO is better than no FAVAROOOOOOOO!
I'm excited for this!!!
Let's see what Mappa has got for us.

Since they haven't given us a release date, I'm just going to assume this is a fall anime. Favaro not the main character?? Not sure how I feel about that.

Is Amira officially dead or will she come back some how????

Most likely she's eternally dead. She was still inside Bahamut when it died(?) or got sealed away again by Favaro.

Looks like it's 24 episodes, for those who're watching it.

New female MC? I just hope they don't go Darker than Black: Gemini of the Meteor on us with her stealing screen time from our beloved MC.

But still, this looks pretty good so I'm stoked.

I don't know how well this will live up to the first season, but it's looking good so far. Please let there be another epic opening by SiM!

It looks like Favaro will most likely play more of a supporting role this time, which despite being my favorite character is fine with me. We already saw his story in Genesis.

Wohooo really looking forward to this!
Good to see most of our heroes from the first season and not have it be new cast only

I'm definitely looking forward to this.

I really liked what Genesis brought, so I am expecting great things with Virgin Soul.

New characters are nice but it's all about Favaro.

Mar 26, 3:49 PM by MrAwesome2016

Didn't like Genesis. I hope Virgin Soul will be better and as much as epic as the PV screams. Visuals and music are nice.
