Question: Do I need to watch Kannaduki no Miko before watching this? Cause I watched that show a long time ago and I remember nothing about it other than the fact that it has some yuri and mecha.

No. Kyoshirou is a separate universe compared to Kannazuki no Miko. The storyline is completely different, with the only real similarities being a number of recycled character designs.

It's not related plot wise, but it uses very similar technical aspect about the execution.

Comparing the first 7 episodes of both, I must say I liked KnM better so far.

Yeah. Kyoshirou has hadn't met my expectations. Granted, they were really high coming from what KnM had

Does that mean then that if I didn't like KnM that much, I wouldn't like this show either?

It depends on what you didn't like about KnM and what you like in general.

The mood of the series is completely different, imo. Worth trying a few episodes.

Actually, I think the problem is with Kuu.

she's rather one track minded as the prime focus character

Kyoshiro is set up to fall.

Setsuna is set up to explode

Which makes them both interesting characters.. IMO

Kaishaku stories tends to have what I call sledgehammer to a fable approach

a mix of poignancy and mean spiritedness

Imagine sleeping beauty.. now imagine sleeping beauty if it midway, the prince horse turns into a dragon, kills the prince and the next part of the story deals with the the now awakened sleeping beauty taking revenge

If you don't like that kind of story telling you might not like this anime

I find Kaon boring compared to Chikane

Kaon follows the script.

Chikane burns it, spits on its ashes and writes a new script.

Well, she did from episode 8+, but we haven't seen episode 8 yet of this series, so Kaon still has hope!

I didn't like KnM, but I like this show a lot. If I keep liking this show so much, I'll probably take another look at KnM. The first time, I didn't like the guy, or the monster aspect, or the mecha, and I was comparing the female characters and the subtlety of feeling unfavorably with Marimite. I thought it was a wild mix of genres that didn't work, whereas this seems to be a mix that works. But maybe it's just that my taste has evolved (for better or worse).

Well...now that episode 8 has finished airing, the wait for the raws has begun.

Oh Kaoru, your taste has definitely taken a turn for the worse, just like the rest of us if you enjoy a show with gazillion shower scenes and glittering fantasies...Okay just kidding. I'm sure that your taste has evolved for the better if you enjoyed a show like Simoun so much.

This show is so much fun to parody. The shower is now the place to do any deep thinking. Kipp, in your soap opera, there should be one episode entitled "Shower Interlude, Part 1".

the point of KnM wasn't about genre mixing.. the mecha and orochi were irrelevant--more like context roles--compared to the chikane x himeko relationship that was central to the story. KnM is also vastly different compared to Maria-sama. Marimite is very idealized and all attempts are made to keep things pure. KnM just rips your heart out.

back on topic: i've found the bath scenes to be the best parts of this series so far. the kuu x setsuna bath scenes are incredibly cute.. and probably delves the deepest into both kuu's and setsuna's personalities. but then, i'm only at ep 4/5 atm

pretty much the same with me if that will help ya LCeh

basically this show is another level above KnM ~ from what i see this series is a lot more unpredicatble so maybe the attraction is there? tho i think KnM has one of the best ends its the start and middle that got me bored ~ this series had a shakey start at first but now its broken out for what i thought was going to be episodic (like KnM)

Hands up, anyone who saw all that coming. I sure didn't, although in retrospect maybe I should have.
Spoiler for ep8:

Only because this is the rumour that just never dies, and it drives me insane -- the manga is not over. I have absolutely no idea why people keep saying it is, but it seems totally unstoppable.
