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

Setsuna was my favorite character, but within the first two episodes you could totally tell that she was going to get shafted. Poor girl. Every time she wanted to express her feelings, she wouldn't, but those pure, beautiful sounding bells would ring. It broke my heart every time Setsuna got ignored...

At least she has plenty of fans in the real world. That should be some consolation.

I'm sort of a little surprised that ADV's licensing announcement for this came so quickly, as the R2 DVDs aren't even all out yet. But, in any event, I guess it makes sense that it would be licensed, given its relationship to Kannazuki no Miko. Sort of surprised that it's ADV and not Geneon, but it's all good. I hope they get all of the mini-episodes on the DVD, and use as much of the R2 art as possible. Looking forward to it!

I haven't been keeping up with info on this since I finished it a few months back. I'm glad to see it's being licensed though. I actually watched KnM dubbed first before I saw the sub, so I'm hoping Stephanie Sheh and Michelle Ruff will get the Himiko and Kaon parts.

I stared at the screen for a few minutes when I first saw the news.
Still in shock.

---
Edit:
Well, I think I'm over it.
And that means I won't be releasing anymore subs for the specials now. (Darn, we were almost finished...)

I was really surprised because I didn't think Kyoshiro was big enough in the community to warrant ADV licensing it...
But yeah, I think it has to do with Kannazuki. Kannazuki's license is less surprising because it's definitely more well-known than Kyoshiro. Most of Kaishaku's stuff is licensed anyway. (All, I think, except for Kagihime)

That's a little surprise. Who would've thought that ADV will be the one licensing Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora and not Geneon. Still, I really don't mind since ADV is one of my favorite dub companies.

Wow, first, I find out Gurren Lagann was licensed already along with the 1st two Nanoha seasons and now Kyoshiro =O. Plus, I didn't expect ADV to pick this type of series up also. I must say, I'll definitely be saving up more now I have more on my to buy list.

You didn't? I'm sure many of us did including me, especially with Kannazuki no Miko on the mind.

Kyoshiro was one beautiful series, so DVD quality is going to be something to see. Very happy this has happened --- now i can rewatch with wonderful quality.

Its ADV so they'll probably make something up --- AAAH SHINNY UTA' COVERS!

& yeah, i hope for the mini-episodes.

You'll just never let that go, will you... (Granted that I agree it's ugly... but at least the rest of the release is pretty good IMO) On the plus side, though, their Ah! My Goddess season 2 is a near perfect match to Media Blasters' season 1, and looks great. So I guess it all depends on who's in charge of marketing/packaging, or something.

In all seriousness, though, I'm about three months behind on my R2 scans, but I'll definitely try to get caught up on the scans for this. Really, really nice packaging, with wrap-around art on both sides of the reversible cover, plus guest art. It'd be a shame to see it all go to waste in R1. Wait and see, as usual...

No, I'm pretty sure it was announced as "Kyoshiro and the Eternal Sky", so that's about right.

I just saw the DVD extras featuring a Kaon x Himiko side story. It was really something. The yuri atmosphere between the 2 really reminds me of Kannazuki no Miko.

Isn't that the whole point? :3

The DVD extra was such a relaxing watch, its a nice chance to see more out of these two who didn't get enough time together in the actually series --- Kannazuki no Miko all over.

Yes you should scan them.
I saw a few scans from the third DVD floating around, and they were really cute. (Setsuna with glasses = )

ADV's decision still is puzzling me though. ANN has a video of the announcement, and there was only applause while Gurren Lagann and Devil May Cry had lots of cheering.

Edit: I just saw the third special. I'm still cracking up. XD
