The worst thing about the anime is definitely the OP & ED. Weak choices again for the 2nd versions.

Tsuchigumo is beasting.

I on the other hand prefer this OP to the first, and while the 2nd ED isn't that much better than the 1st ED, it's a different kind of 'good'... Sort of a smooth R&B tune kind of good....

I prefer the new OP. As stylish as the first OP was, it became quickly became dull.

Nura clan in a serious pinch.
This was not an episode in favor of Rikuo & his clan.
Wonder how he's gonna fix the whole thing and stop the Kyoto yokai.

About the other guy: rewatch the Nura Clan Vs. 8-tails Kitsune scene and you will see him.

Interesting, I heard before that Kubinashi and Kejoro had a 'thing' in the past, it looks like we'll be heading in that direction now that Rikou has three days of 'down time'.

Rikuo training again... but this time it's a hell of a training.
Breaking of the last seal brought all kinds of bad luck to Nura clan.
Kubinashi kinda lost it... it was pretty sad watching him like that, but the action parts were nice.

Because that Gyuki wanted to die and couldn't be bothered actually going all out.

Not just that, but his expectations of how strong Rikuo should have been at the moment weren't that high so he was only fighting on level he thought Rikuo should be able to beat him.

I agree- I simply love the RikuoxTsurara scenes, and the new OP sounds much better than the first one did! I love how darker in tone it sounds, as well as the references to NurarihyonxYouhime and RihanxWakana it contains.

Episode 16 aired.
As I feared, they did NOT explain the stuff behind Yosuzume and the Maou's Hammer...
*sigh* They are really are targeting this at people who READ teh Shikoku arc rather than at people who watched season 1 >_<

Anyway, I made a summary of stuff that was cut out from Season 1 so that you don't get confused or misunderstand something (I don't remember the whole season 1 so I will explain everything). I recommend you to read it:

Sigh... maybe they'll have supplementary material for the anime to explain that bit.... oh who am I kidding.

Considering how good season 2 is right now I'll let that slide, since stuff like how Gagoze was killed by Rikuo or even the colour of Rikuo's clothes in flashbacks to season 1 point to the staff ignoring it completely so it shouldn't be such a surprise.

Honestly, 5 seconds is all it would take to at least show Yosuzume giving the hammer away if they wanted to skip the rest of the explanations. There wasn't actually too much left out of the first season regarding the hammer IIRC. Just mainly you know, Yosuzume's entire connection with it.

@ars89: He was asking Kidoumaru where is the Tengu and who is Minagoroshi Jizou (rewatch the Nurarihyon flashback and you will see that instead of Minagoroshi, the elder advisor was the Tengu). Kidoumaru didn't remember Tengu (who now helps Gyuuki train Rikuo) which shows that every Kyoto Youkai but Tsuchigumo got brainwashed by Minagoroshi Jizou. After that scene we see that Minagoroshi Jizou is part of another clan.

To better understand the situation, read my post above. Every Anime-only watcher should do it as some important stuff from Shikoku arc was cut out from Season 1 and Season 2 acts as if that stuff was not removed.

I kind of like new OP but the problem with it is that shots change too fast and too often what isn't pleasing for eyes.
