tbh I'm not sure HOW into Yoshino Aika was. We don't know nearly enough about her to make any judgement. For all we know, she could be more into Mahiro (why did she stop when she was about to kiss Yoshino?)

I'm going to ship Hakaze and Yoshino hard, but I feel like we need to know more about Aika to see who she likes more. Maybe Yoshino and Hakaze would make a boring couple, but I feel it would be pretty awesome still.

A curious thing, that scene (where she stops before kissing him) is an added scene of the anime (this scene has never appeared in the manga). They agreed that they would kiss for the first time at their next date (this is seen in Chapter 2 of the anime and is part of the manga), but Aika was killed before.

Aika's feelings remain a mystery even to readers of the manga (including the readers of raws). Just know that both guys are very important to Aika.

Hakaze's feelings toward Yoshino have good reason. If the anime is in line with the manga, these reasons will be explained.

About happy endings, perhaps the anime has a happy ending (if the anime has an original ending). Although I'm sure the manga will have a bittersweet ending (the author usually write that kind of end).
I thought the whole premise was that the story wasn't going to end in tragedy. Hakaze is supposed to play Propero and she's gonna save two dudes destined to die.

I got the impression that this Mahiro and Yoshino were flagged for death once they started quoting their favorite Shakespearean character and they aren't going to die because we're expecting them to die.

There's going to be 4 editions of Tomohisa Sako's single (limited version, normal version, Mahiro version and Yoshino version). The last 2 have those characters in the cover.

I wonder, if Aika turns out to be the mage of exodus, if those hairpins that Yoshino has been wearing all this time...might be talismans of some sort.

The pic for #6 there looks like someone ran it through one of those awful contrast correction things Tumblr users like to do. >_<

Here's the original:

Thank you for posting those. I missed a couple of days & was curious as to what had been posted.

It could be just his hairstyle. I had seen one Japanese guy with that type hairstyle. It was his girlfriend's doing. Yeah, it looks too girly.

I got over their girlishness early on, but as I'm rewatching this first season, it's striking me more and more as an odd thing for them to highlight (her putting them on him), when it's starting to feel like everything Aika did (as well as what the show has shown us), she (and it) did with a purpose.

New promo image! Samon and Hanemura's faces are killing me


The website has also changed and Hanemura's profile is up in the character section (kinda of spoilerish so if you understand Japanese you have been warned).
In the movie section there is a new PV with cute Hakaze, Hanemura and ponytail Samon.

Thanks for posting those pics .. I'm missing this show.
By the way, I sort of getting, from those pics, the vibes of Yoshino / Hakaze, Mashiro / Aika pairings. Pairings I'm not actually buying, because for some reason I tend to doubt each hint this show gives away
Anyways, Aika is the mystery girl of the year. She is probably even better than Misaki Mei.

I'm trying to identify the quotes in the yellow tape. I clearly see "O brave new world that has such people in't" (The Tempest) and can see parts of "love is sized, my" & "fears grow gr??" which may be a part of "And as my love is sized, my fear grows so: Where love is great, the littlest doubts are fear; Where little fears grow great, great love grows there." (Hamlet) Anyone want to take a guess as to what else the tape says? And their possible hints for how the second half will evolve?

The news section uses the terms "romantic comedy" and "mystery" and with what the PV shows it does look that way.

Could somebody translate Hanemura's description in the character page? The only things I got were
Spoiler for Hanemura, spoilerish:

So that Animedia article wasn't joking when it said Zetsuen's second cour is a love comedy. Well, a "love comedy with the fate of the world at stake" according to the new PV.

About Aika being the Magus of Exodus, it really does look that way. I can see that happening; and the path is pretty much painted in fluorescent emerald.

However, I have trouble imagining the Tempest somehow turning into A Midsummer Night’s Dream, if the promo material of the 2nd cor is to be believed. Look at this checklist. It would be a jumpcard of sorts if things do turn out like this.
