Kazuya will get his arse handed to him one way or another (Perhaps his source of infinite mana gets cut off because he forgot to pay the bills for past few years )

Setsuna might not make it - i can see her sacrificing herself to save Kyoshiro/Kuu or to destroy Kazuya. But i am not sure how would Setsuna continue to live if she survives... I don't think she would be very happy to hang around Kuu and Kyoshiro, with the two of them acting lovestruck and all.

Though i could see Waruteishia turning against Kazuya at some point. I am almost 100% sure she won't be making it.

The bishie squad will turn out to be evil and will get their behinds toasted as well

Well... thats more or less my take. OR we could get the part where Kazuya succeeds in merging the AAs together (would make for a nice cliffhanger), but the end result turns out to be something that hates him. And Kazuya goes down from a heart attack because his beloved Cielo hates him (Or Cielo simply blasts him to moon and then some) ... and after the big fight Cielo splits up in to separate AAs again and every one lives happily ever after...sort off

I'm sad there was no Kaon/Himiko conclusion included in this.

Tsk...

Well... thats mostly because i couldn't care less about them in all honesty I am interested in the Kuu/Setsuna/Kyoshiro/Kazuya/Waruteishia bit. The whole Kaon/Himiko/Mika thing seemed very uninteresting to me. Their side of story was the same stuff over and over again, until the very end. It just failed to grab my attention. I am more interested to see what happens to Tarlotte/Sojiro... though i am drawing blank when it comes to predicting their fate

It just didn't get enough attention (the Mika & co. side story, that is). That's all there is to it. I think there was an assumption on the producer's side that people would already have a fair grasp of Kaon and Himiko's relationship from Chikane and Himeko in KnM. But I still think there should have been an episode more dedicated to just them, in order to develop those characters and the relationships... since they're really not straightforward characters.

I agree with that completely. I'm a big fan of KnM, so I knew all about Chikane and Himeko's relationship, and thus knew what was going on with Kaon and Himiko without it needing to be explained. I actually only heard about and started watching this series because of the two of them being in it. Maybe it's changed my perspective of the show. Even though it's just snippets, (although episode 9 had a lot of screen time to them) I'm mainly watching this to see what happens to Kaon and Himiko. Of course along the way I've come to like the other characters and care about what happens to them as well. And thats perfectly fine you don't care for them Skyfall. I'll enjoy their scenario enough for the two of us.

Well, i have not seen KnM, so maybe that is why i lack interest in their story As Sorrow-kun said, they just didn't get enough attention to be interesting enough as a stand-alone story. It is a fairly weak side story, where the relationships between the characters is clear from the get-go, and they don't change practically at all.

Sure, Mika didn't turn out as flat of a villain as i thought she would be, but still ... it's hard to think of her as anything else when the only character development she had was revealed to us 2 minutes before her death. Doesn't help that 70% of Himiko's lines are "Kaon-chan...".

Perhaps i would be more interested in them if i would have seen KnM, but i have not And judging by the majority of comments it was not that good anyway, so i doubt i will any time soon. Correct me if im wrong

problem here is the length of the series...i would have loved to see more development of the side characters but that would need about 24 eps ~ and with that comes a big chance that fillers will come into play lowering the enjoyment of this series...i prefer things to be condensed and to have that impact ~ and tbh noone wants to see kyoshiro struggling with his feelings for 5 eps...tho it would have been interesting to see setsuna fully break (no i must not think that >.<) ~

and for KnM...its one of those series that has terrible start but the end is just godly! (get your "kaon"/"himiko" fix over there )

Spoiler for highlights of episode 10:
I'm not that familiar with KnM (although I will be soon), but the Kaon-Himiko romance is strong for me. I don't think it needs a long build-up. It was well drawn in just a few scenes. I fear that extending this show to 26 episodes would be too much for the story to bear. I think the speed keeps us from worrying about everything making total sense. And keeps this a series without any filler.

If this show was planned to be 24/26 episodes, then i'm affraid we'd be running into filler territory. Sure i'd like that, but at least with 12 episodes its just focused around the very interesting storyline. Just like with KnM.

Oh, and i need the best character ever again - yay for episode 10.

Duuur, most of the people I know adore Kannazuki no Miko. And I know A LOT of people. If you're reading online reveiws... uh. Don't. Yeah, there we go! Most of time their opinions, so I generally don't recommend taking them seriously.

http://www.shoujo-ai.com/wbb2/thread...adid=4024&sid=

The original shoujoai.com had better feedback, but allow me to say that well... KnM would be crap without Chikane and Himeko. Their chemistry is the best I've EVER seen, each scene their in is better than the last, It's emo tastic but the ending... makes it aaaaallllllll better.

I wouldn't be that zealous

overall I find KnM to be better so far, but Kyoshiro Sora probably has more balanced characters

KnM is a one woman show, and it's probably a show you appreciate more on a technical level.

but then again, I bet 90% of the people who watched this show initially did it for Kaon

It would have been good had it's flaws weren't as obvious and invasive as they were (and by "flaws", I mean the mecha fights). The romance aspect of it isn't too bad if you don't mind a bit of melodrama (but what shoujo-ai doesn't have melodrama.) As Deathkillz says, it really picks up towards the end, though. Hell, even if you don't like the story, you could almost watch it for the music alone.

26 eps would be far too long for this series. That's why sometimes I think the 12/13 ep seasons are too restrictive, since you either have to wrap up your story in 13 eps, or somehow extend it to 24, and on many occassions some sort of compromise between the two would have worked best (Air immediately comes to mind).

No shit they're opinions. That, on it's own, isn't a reason to be dismissive of them.

I also like that the show ends short, thus preventing the disgrace to be swarmed up with unnecessary fillers, although the only inconvenience of ending short is that the main characters either some will not be developed further or others will not be explored more.

What can I say? Leave it just like that.

In addition, the soundtrack has getting wonderful and more emphasized as the conflict is approaching the climax. It has picked enough attention on me to go and get it.

For once I will comment that Kazuya's corny speeches did pay a positive influence on me.
