I wasn't planning to watch this season after the utter disappointment that was the first one, but you guys convinced me otherwise. I don't regret it, this episode is how the first season should have been (why the hell did they skip that chapter in the first place anyway?).

If the pacing is indeed faster this time and the animation remains consistent, it should be awesome. The Kyoto arc was shounen at its best.

awesome new season... I liked the past flashbacks that showed how Rikuo gone from...

Wanting to be the 3rd, to
Hating the Youkai for being so evil, to
Wanting to be the 3rd, just so he can protect the humans, to
Being the 3rd, so he can restore the glory of the old Parade.


BTW, young Kana is so cute... and here I was hoping to see a young Yuki-Onna too, but I guess Youkai lives for thousands of years so they don't age >_<

Which makes her romantic interest in Rikuo slightly disturbing. She's been taking of him since he was a baby after all. Think on that for a second.

Having said that, I'm still rooting for Tsurara all the way.

Tsurara is fine but..

What about Keikain? Hehe it would be very interesting (and funny) to see those onmyoujis all freaked because their main branch will end mixing with demonic blood .

And, that wouldn't the 4th Nura leader 1/2 onmyouji and 1/8 demon?

I personally support this couple if only for the hilarity. Plus I like Yura the best after ch. 57.

Although their kid probably would have difficulty with the youkai powers, what with being 1/8th while Rikou has a lot of problems being only 1/4th.

Strong first episode, lots of action and we got to see another side of Rikuo...the start was awesome, murder right off the bat! Wasn't expecting much but this was a pleasant surprise Next ep seems to touch some sensitive points too.

P.S: Love grandpa's "skills", Kiyotsugu hit the nail in his description :P

Nah, their age difference is nothing compared to...

Don't be dissing Yuki-onna as a romantic option for Rikuo. If she loses out to Kana it'd break my heart. So she's a few years older, big deal. Rikuo is a hanyou and he's already almost caught up the Yuki-onna in appearance, so once they're both teenagers he's have a few hundred years to be compatible with her.

Has it ever been mentioned how long Rikuo could live or if he has longevity at all?

No one is going to lose out to Kana in this series, if it goes down that path it will be Tsurara or Yura. I don't think we'll ever get a choice in the manga tbh... and if one happened... while I like Tsurara the most out of the 3... looking @ it without bias and seeing how things have played out... I think it would go down the Yura path. But I'm more confident on no choice happening.....

Unliek some like Bleach and One Piece, this is a story of a Clan/Family so it would be weird for it to end without telling us the future of it and who Rikuo's wife will be an an essential part of it.

It is quite possible, especially if we get an AO ending.
As far as the Manga goes... I stopped seeing her as a possible option long, long time ago ^_^;

It's not so much the age difference that I find bothersome, it's the fact she's crazy about a 13 year old she has presumably known since his birth

IIRC, a youkai is considered an adult when he reaches 13, so I guess it's okay. And I repeat myself: I fully support Tsurara and I'd be incredibly disappointed if she lost. I'm just stating some interesting facts.

And yeah, Kana is no longer even an option. You can already forget about her.

Tsurara's kinda like Sugar from Summon Night...as for Rikuo's pick, isn't Kana the most probable choice? His mom and grandma were humans too...

I think Rikuo will choose whom he wants, no matter if it is human or Youkai. Old Day Rikuo might have chosen a human but Rikuo became a pure mix after Gyuuki Arc.
After all, I see Rikuo as a symbol of Human&Youkai co-existence so the more place they are mixed, the better story-wise IMO.

Also...

Maybe mods wait to move more treads at once?

I haven't read the manga, but I haven't seen the slightest indication of interest from either Rikuo or Yura in each other.

The manga drops a few hints here and there, but significantly less then Kana and Tsurara.

Wait till the next couple of episodes. :P
