I didn't care for KnM. Sorry, but I'm not for Yuri pairings, unless it's side characters. I want my main characters very hetero thank you very much.

So far this series has my interests peaked, but they better keep the Yuri down.

I'll admit that i've never had the plesure of watching/reading Kannazuki no Miko. I've always loved the style the show goes about using, though i've never got around to experinecing this type of story telling. Though even without seeing, i was still able to fully enjoy Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora to the max.

I've rewatched the first episode a lot since its airing - and thats mainly because of its musical score. Not ever have a been impressed with a musical score this early in a series, and thats coming from the OSTpedia. Also - i noticed that Kubota Mina also did the music for Kannazuki no Miko, would you say the same style of music is used for that series?

Yes, it's a very, very similar style. And just as good. KnM's soundtrack has always been one of my personal favourites. It's one of the few that one can listen to from start to end like an album. I just wish Kubota was in more anime.

I'd just like to say thanks to this bit of information, i shall be checking out Kannazuki no Miko as quickly as possible. I agree - it is a shame that Kubota doesn't do much work, though then again - she creates a style that can't be used for just about any series.

What I find interesting is one particular scene in the opening where Kyoshiro stabs Kuu directly in the chest (where we saw the glowing mark in episode 1) with his sword and then we see him crying. Hmm, wonder what that is about.

I'm only following this show to see what becomes of Kyoshiro and Kuu. The yuri scenes are rather unsettling to me .

Same with me. Many of my associates like to inform the customers the name of specific locations in the store that only we should be using and this confuses the customers. Which of course they come ask me cause of the location i work at. I meet them half and I, of course can't finish my task and have to stay after the store closes to finish.

i guess that would be quite late in the series...one of the biggest secrets to be reveled?

@ Shiroth ~ if you are gonna pick up KnM anime version (i dnt read manga that often ) then you will need to stick to it past the repetitive boring parts (which managed to fail me once ) and then it turns into one hell of an emotional ride :3 but knowing you i bet the musical score is enough to keep ya going

I can stand a lot of shows, even when people explain them to come out as 'boring' - so i'll be alright. & yes, musical score alone~

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora, in my opinion, is the best anime of the 2006/2007 Winter season. ^o^

Does anyone have the ED lyrics or know when the CD will be released?

Well, not sure about the lyrics, but Shiroth mentioned that the ED single will be out on the 21st of February. I'm looking forward to it, and I'll once again agree with those saying that the music is definitely one of this show's strongest points. Great stuff!

I wonder if there was truth to her words or she's just trying to irritate Kaon. Although this is purely speculation, I'll put it as spoilers just to be safe.

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora seems to have more fanservice as I expected first (luckily somehwhat^^).
However I dont like how they overexegarate with those prince and princess themes...I mean, seriously, a prince coming on a whte horse to save his princess...
But its too early to judge i guess.

I'm pretty sure they're doing it on purpose. I mean, we have Kuu with her funny monologues. Yeah, who cares about the school getting destroyed because Kyoshiro and Setsuna are more interesting.

your not the only one...the "white prince on horse" theme seems too corny for me >.< i just hope that the white prince does more than just sit on his horce and look pretty still its too early to tell ~

The way I see it...this show is simply for the fun or the heck of watching something because you're bored. There isn't any realistic ploy: an extremely basic plot, funny coincidences and gimmicks that shouldn't be taken seriously. So yeah...whenever I see the white horse, I'd just laugh - if they're going this far, why not take it a step further and made it a pegasus. At least, then I can say...preetttyyy...and laugh .

Anyway, when I saw Kuu going to that mailbox, I was expecting there to be a hole at the bottom of that mailbox and through the ledge, so that when she drops the envelope in, it will simply go straight through the bottom and down the hill...and her prince awaits at the very bottom to catch it . Seriously, is there really a Haiken (that's what she called her prince...I assume it's his name or something). Does someone actually read and/or respond to her letters or do they simply accumulate in that mailbox? Ah, the mysteries of illogic.

I'm fond of those fairy tale like animes like the whole "prince and princess" thing. Sure, there were awkward scenes and sometimes too exaggerated scenes. As for the fanservices, well....I have no say to that
