Instead of having them hunt humans for their PoE, couldn't the Guze no Ou "farm-raise" humans on certain lands and the Tomogara could eat those instead?

lol, i think SnF tried that, when margery found the haridan she said that SnH built a city for humans and created the haridan to monitor the humans.

1. The thought of Yoshida blinking out of existence makes me absurdly happy. Hurry up and do it already woman.

2. The sudden little twist with Tanaka is nice, I like it.

3. Meh to everything else.

4. New OP and ED are superior to the previous ones.

I feel that Yoshida should pay more attention to her surrounding.. there's a better guy waiting out there *cough* Megane-kun *cough*.

She's a nice character ..

The "oh-come-on-do-your-job-and-follow-me" jab is getting repetitive ...

From a human POV, that's morally wrong.

From a Tomogara's POV... well, that's a restaurant for them.

Better yet, the death row inmates are about to be killed so why not take their PoE instead?

Honestly, to think that there would be Tomogara that would breed humans in the same manner as livestock, they are gonna need a lot of farms to surpass the demand.

jumps on that bandwagon!

damn lass is just annoying now, it was bad enough hearing
"I won't lose"
"I won't lose either"
for the 1000th time, now she just chirps on and on about standing where Yuji is standing.

I just saw this episode, and I liked it a lot. Other than the stuff with Yoshida (for once I fell she's being a bit of a fool---there is no need to risk her life for anything at this point), I liked the pacing of this episode. I also liked the new opening, which shows Yuji actually making himself useful for once. I am somewhat surprised that Yuji can lift Blutsauger in the first place, but I guess that's because he's not exactly human. In any case, I look forward to Yuji being able to fight for himself. 10/10

Actually, he was already able to lift it back in the last episode of season 1.

I think the best expression to describe this episode is 'calm before the storm'. And finally Yuji is going to fight, I have been waiting for this since season 1.

Also, I didn't really like neither the new OP nor the new ED.

I like the new OP animation. It was great. The song is just average. It's not catchy enough. The same about the ED.

I know it's already been talked about, but I just have to say it anyway. As if I needed more of a reason to like Pheles:

Yoshida: Why are you giving me this?
Pheles: Because you are a human who can use this Hougu. If you disappear, it won't hurt anyone.

Thank the gods for Pheles, she just gave Yoshida what she needs the most: a way to die and disappear for good!

I'm more sympathetic to Kazumi this time around since she actually has a cause to angst, but I really don't need yet another "I want to be where Sakai-kun is." Yes, woman. We get the point. Now use that awesome hougu and disappear or something.

Otherwise, I love the new Yuji. He gives the impression that he's thinking a lot right now, but also calm and composed; not to mention that huge-ass sword is perfect for him.

The OP is hilarious though; lol, people standing on the school roof looking at the sun, and Yuji just holds his sword like he's about to fight.

And finally, Hecate is interesting. I like her reaction at the end. Bel-Pel is just the usual evil witch villain who's really really evil, the Professor a generic Team Rocket villain, but Hecate's more sympathetic than the rest of the bunch.

I don't think Yuji's being shocked by his dad's remark as much as he's deep in thought about the irony of the statement in his situation.

The dad isn't aware after all that their real son is dead, and that this son is in big trouble involving a bunch of lunatic existence-eaters, some crazy armor with a lot of eyes, an obsessive immortal lover, and a rare magical artifact thingie from that immortal with an endless pool of existence, so the stereotypically fatherly "You'll be fine won't you?" has a bit of an extra impact.

I know. That was just an examle of the kind of moments I was talking about in these episodes. Sure, maybe 1 or 2 big shocks an episode displayed or repititions work. But, Shana overdoes it, having like 15 or so an episode. I hate it. It reminds me of those

Me <3 Yoshida. Maybe she'll become a mystes so she can be with Yuji forever! Out of the way, Shana.

If she becomes a mystes, she'll just disappear because she doesn't have the mighty Midnight Lost Child in her.
Though unlike a lot of people here, I hope she can remain alive (human) to the end and be happy.

New OP and ED
Spoiler:


It's not surprising that this episode was comparatively weak in contrast to the end of the Pheles arc. We have to admit it four major events happened in the previous episode and went in the blink of an eye.

Still, I would have wished if the animators went focusing with Kazumi's depression over Yuuji in this episode exclusively, and not having to repeat it in the previous arcs.

Thats about the size of it...Take the hint yoshida and walk away from all this super powered craziness and go have Ike's babies or something...

Meh other then the lulls that always accompany yoshida's inner monologues it was an ok episode after all the insanity of episode 15. The OP helped though by getting my hopes that thing will finally get good soon...Crossing my fingers that im not getting my hopes too high.

It's not like I'm out for her destruction or anything. Whatever will end those personally annoying statements regarding being too far from Yuji, wanting to be where he and Shana are, works for me.

Oddly enough she is connected to a few annoying things like the continuously brought up "I'm not going to lose" thing. They've hit both points home, thank you series. She'll either need to move on or go out according to Pheles in a blaze of obscurity.

Poor Yuji. Tries to look cool in the OP with blutsauger and instead gets called ridiculous .

The way I see it Tanaka is being a complete wimp and baby. Im not looking forward to the next ep. After this he should never appear again. He just disrupts the plot development.
