I was fairly disappointed in Kannazuki no Miko, so I was a little hesitant with this series.

I wasn't exactly surprised with all the fanservice and yuri. I also wasn't surprised at the amount of angst in this show and how Kuu often spends the important moments crying, sobbing, or writing to her "Prince." But frankly, the angst in this show is a bit more convincing than having Chikane go into fanservice mode with water, and certainly Kyoshiro and Kuu spend more time being a couple in this show.

While it was apparent from the start about how much of a fairy tale this anime series was going to be, I did like how the characters confronted cruel reality (i.e., Kuu's actual Prince, Kyoshiro coming to grips with playing with the feelings of two women, etc.) and chose to hold onto their dreams. It was an added bonus that some of the Kaishaku look-a-likes in this show don't act like total clones of their previous selves--such as Sojiro, who is probably the most mature character in the whole cast.

I, too, would have liked the show to be longer--maybe more exposition devoted to Kuu's and Kyoshiro's dates, and how Setsuna feels about this. However, it's obvious from the later episodes that the animation budget was starting to get thin, so maybe next time Kaishaku ought to secure more funding.

Each DVD has a 5-minute bonus mini-episode, so maybe that's where the shot is from. I think the episodes themselves are the same, but I haven't watched the first disc yet to check.

I think it's an omake, as relentless flame instead. From the description, it sounds like Setsuna's been enhanced by Kuu's sparkle vision. The DVD versions are probably just higher quality and touched up like most anime DVD releases go. The omake for the fifth DVD looks like it's going to be hilarious.

Those trading cards look pretty...but horrendously expensive. One of them has Kipp's favorite picture

I found a Chinese sub of the DVD episodes, including the special. I couldn't understand much of what was said, but it was nice seeing Setsuna again. She was really sweet, as usual. Kyoshiro's standing improved a little bit. But not that much.

This has to be my most favorite anime, and I've been into anime since I was 4, the artwork is really great, and I love the plot. It's not just the fact that I love Kaishaku, but it's a great anime. I wish I could buy the manga translated, or at least download a translated version... -.-

Almost Kaishaku did it to satisfy all the fans who was drilling them about Knm.

Well this anime is about love sick fools. It provided some degree of entertainment, i guess the real entertainment was during the explaination and the arrival of the asshole Kazuya. Before that it was all characters trying to behave pethatic and symphathatic,kissing each other like a slut.

Honestly,the reason why i was watching this anime was because of Kaon and Himeko. But then, they dont really look like how they were in Knm. Kaon looks more soften, her hair is not as dark, i feel the seiyuu isnt doing her best. Himeko, behaving like a replica of Kuu,her hair, not as bright as before. Himeko was bright and her character was cheerful. Kaon was meant to be illuminous, dark, and graceful.

The anime is way too colourfull, but the colour are not dense, the shading feels lesser, and no dept into it.

If i knew the anime was this pethatic, they shouldnt included Chikane and Himeko. They should really just leave them at KnM. It just spoiled the characters.


I dont know how to rank this anime, it varies on peoples taste. This is just my opinion. The ranking goes to the viewers.

Haha I didnt like the characters either. At first I was weirded out too Absolute Angels with Absolute powers (limbs turning into robot parts? O_O ) Kuu's voice actress was annoying as hell "Haiken, watashi no ouji-sama.." and she says "Ayanokouji-san!"every minute. It had a lot of "WTF?!" moments too. I only watched it because I like the character design. It gets better halfway through the series I guess..

I know she's still partner-less in the end. In last episode everyone has their lovers/partners. Kyoshiro and Kuu, Kyoshiro's brother and that Green haired girl, Kazuya and Mejingord, Kaon and Himiko while Setsuna was crying (of happiness?) by herself as she watched Kyoshiro and Kuu dance in the sky and kiss like theres no tomorrow.

Well you're entitled to your own opinion, but overall it isn't that great of an anime. Story wise, it has the Girl meet Prince theme, then like Kannazuki, they add "Mechas" of all things into it. I found that the mechas destroyed Kannazuki, which also didn't have any storyline, just the trace of yuriness. Kyoshiro, has beautiful artwork, from the character design to the props to the backgrounds. Mechas, I suppose it was ok, but i'm not really a mecha person. It's neat and everything, but here's my opinion.

"If you can't create a good storyline, you better make your characters very attractive, and vice versa. If you have both, you're in luck, it's gonna be good then."

I haven't finished the anime yet, I had to drive my sisters to their dentist appointment and still have the last half to finish, of ep 12. ^_^.

Later now.

Got it. My friend and I found KTKJ's sub of it in Chinese, and we've translated it. We tried as much as possible to get it right using the bits of Japanese picked up from watching too much anime.... (Message me if the link's expired)

LINK REMOVED.

Nevermind. The video's fine now.
It's licensed now, so please don't distribute the link.


By the way, xeby-chan did an awesome article on Setsuna.

I'm not going to go that far, but I think it is very, very underrated. It isn't a boring, normal anime, and judging it in normal ways seems beside the point, to me. It has a special life of its own. It uses plot elements from elsewhere, but transcends them. Postmodern, lol.

EDIT: Oh, Setsuna! A great character beautifully voiced by Matsuoka Yuki (Osaka in Azumanga Daioh, Nana in Elfen Lied, Evangeline in Negima).

That's, a wonderful way to put the dread and dismay that is and was Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora... o_o''
At this point I think we should all stand up and pledge our love and loyalty to Setsuna to fill the gap in her heart.(love gap)

I love you Setsuna!!! You've always got me!

Just watched this in one sitting. Just love the characters. The dudes who made UFO Princess and Kannaduki no Miko have done it again: Hot babes and effeminate guys.
However I can't shake off the feeling that it's a mesh of UFO and Kannaduki. Maybe it's because Himiko and Kaon are a rehash of Himeko and Chikane, Tarlotte is a nekomimi version of Chibi Walkure and Mejingord is the mirror of Adult Walkure (not to mention all of their voice actresses are exactly the same)

All in all, I liked the series. Not as tragic as Kannaduki yet not as happy as UFO.
My favourite of the 3 series is still UFO Princess though. Guess I still prefer happy animes.

The naming of the title is a little interesting though. "Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora" means "Kyoshiro and the Eternal Sky". The title is actually pronounced as "Kyoshiro to Eien no Sora (Kyoshiro and the Eternal Sky)" or "Kyoshiro to Eien no Kuu (Kyoshiro and Eternal Kuu)". The word "Towa" should be written in different characters but it has the same meaning as Eien(eternity) but with abstract usage. I guess "Towa no Sora" sounds more serious than Kuu.

I love Setsuna too! She has unconditional love for Kyoshiro, always there watching from the sidelines, getting jealous but is still very accepting.

and there was this part when she was cleaning a room in episode 7, and she saw Kuu's notebook, (Kuu wrote Shiratori Kuu x Ayanokouji-sama and there was heart around it) she raised her arm and it transformed into mecha thing and was about to destroy the notebook but she stopped herself and closed the notebook itself.. How cute
