I was wondering about the mailbox too. Maybe there's some tragic backstory associated with it. It did have a red background associated with it...

Spoiler:


Anyway, I like fairy tale type stories too. Excellent replay value imo.

Well I find the mailbox to be a neat idea. Good way to present her thoughs... but the horse is just too much.... It's rediculous.

That's squarely aimed at the female audience. Part and parcel for being a "prince" in Western fairy tales is to ride a white horse. The music also fits the epic Western fairy tale mode imo.

I'm wondering why Setsuna is in a "maid" role if she's a powerful angel. You can't marry the prince if you're working in his household.

There's another subber!? Oh thank goodness! Ayako's subs are weird and they DID make mistakes in the first ep. Kuu says "I still feel hot." and the wet dreams thing is totally.... I don't know WHERE they got that.....

Well this is odd, I hated ChikanexHimiko but I LIKE KaonxHimiko....

...well Kaon is really cool.....

shes more of a "servent" serving her master rather than a maid ~ maybe its cause she relies on his "energy" to function properly

I'm not sure what I feel about Kuu. She seems childish in a way in that she always address her thoughts to "Ouji-sama" (it sounds like she's writing in a diary sometime but I can't be sure). But then she does know about "the forbidden love between girls" so she's not that naive.

Setsuna does look very pretty, just like all the other characters, but I think I like her character design the best. As for Kyoshirou, I have a hard time hearing his voice on my computer half the time because the seiyuu makes his voice so low.

In terms of the show, it's not really pulling me in but I'm still curious where this will go.

Kuu's mind keeps flying off everytime she was thinking of something or someone. Just like you said, she seems a little childish but I guess that's what makes her innocent IMO.

--> No wonder Kuu's voice sounded familiar, her VA is the same one as the one who voiced Karin

Kuu's probably led a sheltered existence for some reason and is afraid of getting hurt which isolates her more. She also has some low self esteem going on there too. Sad, she's just as cute as those other girls but doesn't realize it. Totally surprised when someone wants her help and could be easily taken advantage of. But, she at least didn't follow Kyoshiro like a puppy so far. Setsuna is just too obedient imo.

Setsuna is okay, but I like Kaon's and Kuu's designs the best so far. The other blonde is pretty good too. Kuu in the other uniform in the ED looks great too.

But I thought that maids were a subclass of servants?

1. Maids are a kind of servant. All maids are servants (except maybe in maid cafes, lol). Not all servants are maids.

2. Kuu is played in divine fashion by YAHAGI Sayuri, who is 20, and whose debut role was Karin. She also plays Gretel in Otogijushi Akazukin, but she is clearly under much tighter control there, and does not display the rich voice she does here and in Karin.

Here is some info about her, with a picture. Here is an interview with her, with another picture, done when she was just starting to record Karin. And there is yet another pic below. She is not glamorous, and will never be mistaken for an idol, but she is truly a voice goddess, in my book:

It seems like Kuu's low self-esteem has a lot to do with her name because one of the meaning of the kanji is "emptiness". But to me it seems like an unusual reason to have low self-esteem.

IMO Kaon's costume isn't very impressive (her miko outfit isn't as detailed as the one Chikane wored in KnM) and that big crescent moon shaped earring looks rather odd on her. But Himeko's is better; I like the ruffles on her blouse.

Best episode so far! EP2, Chikane/Kaon was sparkling, i disagree! Shes not a Queen, she is a Goddess.

Looking foward to the King, Kazuya.

I'm trying to figure out why Kaon and Himiko put up with Mika. I noticed a rebellious spark within Kaon when it took her a minute to tell Mika that she was her sword when Himiko was being taken away. Then again, we're only on episode 2, but it seems Kaon is powerful enough to kick Mika's ass and take off with Himiko if she wanted.

She totally should! I'm becoming a Kaon fan. xD

obviously mika is playing some "blackmailer" role here...or that she could be really strong and kaon needs to set and ambush or something the likes >.< either way it shows that mika has the hots for himiko and kaon is not gonna let it happen *waves flag* :3

Hopefully Mika ends up dying a slow and painful death. I'm not sure if she's just possessive or Kaon or Himiko, or if she feels threatened by the pair of them together. She was quite obviously pissed off to witness the pair of them kissing/swapping energy - whatever. I'm gonna be sad if the kiss slowly drains the life force out of the human counterpart. I suppose it's up for grabs whether it's just an "exhaustion" drain, or "it's gonna keel you after a while *tragic*" kind of drain. If the latter is true, it makes me kinda think of Chrno Crusade.
