A surprisingly and extremely mediocre episode in quality. I expected something better from J.C. Staff after all the quality stuff they've sent out. At least they got rid of that annoying screen wipe...that's always welcome.

Might get a better rating when I watch it subbed.

Are you comparing with other J.C. Staff shows or with the previous season of ZnT? I thought this looked like it had better quality than the first season.

Looking at the OP, they're going to get at least as far as Tifania's part of the novel.

As long as they don't compress the material too much, it's fine with me. There is also room to innovate from the novels. I'd rather prefer for them to go nice and slow, maybe to have new material in the middle, and have a 3rd season based on the rest of the novels (jejejeje, second season just started and I'm talking about a third one)

Seeing Saito's getting abused/punched/kicked/beaten/bombed did the heart so good considering how much I loathe this character. All in all a good start.

I won't comment on the animation considering the series never had much of a good animation to begin with, but the episode is in no way any worse than the overall animation effort in season 1.

I'm comparing with the other J.C.Staff shows, such as Shakugan no Shana and most importantly Honey & Clover. The latter very pleasantly surprised me and put J.C.Staff forever on my high respect list. Perhaps they had different groups working on different shows, because the quality frequently jumps around.

Or they are distributing resources (money) not equally. If thats the cass then Znt must be last on J.C. Staffs list, comapring its quality with other animes produced by this company.

I do indeed like this opening quite a bit over the first season's. One thing I must say though: I didn't even recognize Guiche until the final shot of him with Tabitha, Kirche, and Montmorency. Did he always look that cool? Or am I just totally misinterpreting this? Must be the sword.

I actually didn't like H&C's animation all that much at all. I blame the overuse of Hagu's SD face...I just couldn't take her character seriously at all, and that ruined it for me. Luckily Morita and Mayama redeemed the show.

I agree that SnS probably does have better overall animation than ZnT, though. JC Staff's animation quality does seem to change depending on the show, so they probably do have different groups working on each show.

I think that's the new character, Julius Ceasar.
