Haha someone already uploaded the OP in reverse. XD I wish I lived in Japan, as I usually wish. I could have seen the whole episode already!

EDもゲットだぜ!

Haha the ending was nice too. Though as some people commented, a bit yuri-feeling.

The OP was really nice, I loved the transition from the quietness to the full-speed chorus. Rika's desperate dash matched the image of the song excellently as well.

I loled at how the comments on the niconico video are filled with people who are skipping school and work. That and it's swamped with english comments (now there's going to be a billion 外人自重 (restrain yourselve gaijin) comments...)

edit: the tags are getting funny, 外人も熱狂 (gaijins are wild over this too)

If only I didn't have to work today...

Done watching first episode.

Content wise, the first part was practically the animated equivalent of the TIP "Demon's Script", which came after the end of Tsumihoroboshi-hen. Hence, as of this point, we can say that the first episode takes place in the Tsumihoroboshi-hen world (30 years later).

The only difference came after the CM, where the adult Rena (43~44歳にしてはすげえ美人じゃない?) made an appearance. Rena's accounts are mostly hole-fillers for the stuff they missed out on Tsumihoroboshi-hen in the first season.

Overall, this episode did well to shift the focus onto Rika. The "truth" hasn't been revealed yet, and I don't think it will until Minagoroshi-hen. For those of us who already know everything, it's a little hard to not "slip up" and start spoiling things. But for those people who are still in the dark, they're in for an amazing ride.

Nothing too surprising, but the sakuga quality is super good. Good to see the "dead fish eye" is still around too /sarcasm.

*Goes to check amazon for the OP single CD*

The new opening is really nice, I already love that song

I'll wait for subs to watch the episode, the wait is going to be hard, especially after seeing that pic of Rena (she looks hot ! )

Shiosai? can you (or anyone else) confirm it is really 3 years later?
i think i heard 30 (well, 3 looks really too low, especially how everyone were much older than before oO. and there are numerous amount of random comments, trying to guess her age within 40 years old range (38, 40, 46, etc) )

EDIT : oh well, sushi confirmed my thoughts.
but wait... since they tell she is 43, do they specify how many years it has been passed between the disaster and the "present"? it might answer to the big mystery : how old are the main characters? *_*
Or the 43 is an estimated age too? (well, i would hardly buy the fact Rena was 13 during tsumi heh...)

well then, superficial thoughts :
  • The OP is, IMO, fantastic : i loved how the scenes switched on the pace of the song. Lots of powerful scenes to say the least.
  • Something thrown directly at our faces : the details of the Background, and facial expressions. It is really hard to believe that Season 1 and 2 were done by the same studio
  • Extremely Dialogue heavy, the mood itself is pretty much what i was expecting, and fits well the Demon Script TIPS. (do they explain how Rena survived?)
  • The camera angles were, just like in season 1, really effective. Most of the scenes involving adult Rena are well portrayed to me.
  • The seiyuu have made a nice work on their voices. Ooishi has REALLY subtle tones of a grandpa, though he wasn't especially too rough. Rena is very different from her usual self, and gives a lot of sorrow vibes. However, i didn't really catch lots of "old man" tones in Akasaka's voice. might try to watch again Himatsubushi ~~
  • the ED was peaceful and really calm. Lots of powerful scenes once again ^___^
The start looks promising, i'm waiting for the subs, not without uneasiness though ^^"

and, final note of course : Rena is damn sexy

43 years old is fine too, especially since she looks like she's 25

I can't remember any other character looking that good in the previous season, did they change the chara design?
