I had no idea Kan-u Unchou was actually supposed to be Guan Yu. She came out of nowhere in the first series and everybody worshipped her, but she didn't do anything and was really kind of boring. I'm hoping they use her better this time around.

^ yea this season seems to be more focused on the other schools and kanu looks to be the center of it all...i guess in S1 she was just used to tease the "hungry" viewers into wanting for more

Its how the manga tells the story. It was never planned that a second series would happen after the first, it ended ended in a way that the story couldn't continue. Its just that the manga carries on with the story after the Dragon Hakufu story finished (where the first season ended). I just wish the anime could have shown the real end to Toutaku - the best character in the story if you ask me.

I really hope they have Taishi Ji come back and join up with Hakufu/Nanyo. Him and Ukitsu would really give Nanyo a good chance against Sousou Makoto. That and Nanyo an Seito joining will be insane to watch.

As long as they don't kill Ton-chan. Ton-chan's too cool.

01: Ton's fight in the alleyway lasts a lil bit longer in the manga - with more actually contact between himself and Koshaji (her name wasen't given in the manga). I don't mind the leave outs, though i do like the way Ton loses his eye more in the manga.

02: Ryomou appearing at the end --- thats completely new! All i can think is that we'll be getting changes like this more often in the series, so it'll have an actually ending. The manga hasn't length & when it'll end haven't been mentioned yet, so they'll go for something new.

Anyway, i really enjoy the second episode. Very happy that my favorite character, Toutaku was mentioned. Still i wish the first anime could have gone the manga way with him, but that was a while ago, and i've forgiven them with this second season (they've made it upto me :3).

Seeing Sousou start to awaken was always pretty interesting in its own way. & the fact that Ton notices the change in him straight away is something i'm glad they didn't miss out. While on the subject of Ton --- yay for not changing his eye-patch design! o/

& of course, this wouldn't be a episode 02 post with mentioning Kan-u in battle. It was only a lil' feature into her power, but man it was amazing. Judging from the battle scenes, i can see a lot of good ones in the future.

I can't even remember how the first series ended? What was the difference between how the anime and manga ended that part of the story?

Alright, I can forgive 3 mostly Hakufu-less episodes for the entrance she had at the end of this ep. #4 looks to be full of Hakufu though.

Super brief summary

The first series was a complete new ending - mainly because a second season was never planned back then. There's a huge difference in what happens in both the manga and the anime at that point.

& thanks for the images and summary aroduc --- shall be watching the episode myself pretty soon.

Edit:
Spoiler for Episode 03:

aroduc was pointing out the fact that she isn't in the manga. & seriously --- do you need to quote the whole of the image, including the image?

The OP+ED Single for the series is to be released on the 25th of April.

Linky

I can't wait to here the full version of Garasu no Hana (ED) --- its the perfect themed song for a show like this, the same can be said for the OP. Though its a shame there's no M.O.V.E. ;_;

Yeah, you're right --- its Bashoku Youjou. A lil' search through the manga found her straight away. Oh, and its volume 08.

Thats it, i'll re-read it all this week. :3

Yeah, I'm not more than passingly familiar with the manga source. I just can't read Japanese nearly as well as I can speak it, and certainly can't crossmatch the names given how much of a corruption of the original most are. *shrug*

Whaaahooo~ Nanyo's in da house~! Finally! Ryomou's all well and fine but I seriously want to see Genpou up to his usual antics yet again. Here's to Ep. 4

Now, the question is, just how much control, if any, does Hakufu have over her Dragon... Sousou's been completely possessed, Ryuubi goes nutty every single time, so where does this leave our past main protagonist?

Hmm --- its hard to say at this point. There's a lot of material to go from, though with the lil' changes in the story here & and there in Dragon Destiny, it could go anyway in terms of Hakufu's control over the Dragon.

Kira: Hakufu images have to be that large. o/
