Yes, this is sort of the problem/consequence of their strategy to break down the show into two distinct halves, rather than blending it all into one big story. Knowing the game, I understand why they had to do that for continuity reasons, but it does have some of the consequences like those you described. Ther personalities of Otome, Yume, and Anzu were only shadows of their current selves in the first season, and vice-versa with Nanaka, Minatsu, and Koko this season (some of whom don't even show up, or barely). As I've said before, I think of this as being like playing through the game multiple times on different paths; the balance only happens when you take the entire story on the whole. But it does mean that some people got wrong impressions last time, which is why I was trying to leave hints at the time ("Just wait until this gets explained! It's important!").

Anyway, I'm sure you'll continue to see the differences this season, and I think even some of her earlier behaviour may start to be explained. We'll see.

I love how Otome is running around calling herelf the mage of justice in the land of ever blooming sakura's with a boy sidekick that can make sweets appear from nowhere yet cats turning into people? No freaking way thats possible right?

Perception is a fun thing...Is there a reason why they don't talk to sakura about this btw? You know...the immortal loli...

It's again about perception (or really, narrative irony). There are a lot of things that you know as a viewer that the characters in the story don't know yet. I guess you could say that catgirls were only the tip of the iceberg. That's why, in a sense, episode 6 could be considered a bit boring because to us it's all old news, but to the characters, it's all still a giant mystery. Of course, over the course of the rest of the series, they'll figure it all out.

Anyway, now for episode 7...

*Personal opinion* It's incomparably much better than D.C.S.S, better than D.C. II, and has the potential to be better than D.C. if they do it right.

D.C.S.S. was just fillers IMO.

Second season is winning by far.

I agree, but then again I thought the very existence of the grey haired loli was filler by itself, so I'm very much biased.

And speaking of fillers, even I feel DCFS had a bunch of it starting the second cour. Of which to me would be normally inexcusable, but taking into account that DC was the first multi-cour eroge adaptation AND the year it was made, I guess I had to be lenient. Ending made it easier to do so, but still...


As for eps 7, MUCH better in terms of storytelling. I really hope eps 6 never EVER happens again.. >_>

Makes me wonder though why grandpa didn't join them for the new years meal. You'd think he'd be present in what is probably the most important time for a Japanese person, no? XD

Is it just me, or is this season like, really really dark. I mean, not just the video (Raws seem to be dark for whatever reason...), but the content is just like saddening and evil. Opening every episode with Sakura's cryptic remarks, and the constant mentioning of disasters occurring around town. Da Capo to me has always been a lighter story, especially DCSS, but this story is just... Depressing.
And I love Yume. Kotori still is my favorite DC character of the entire series, but Yume is cute. ^_^

Ugh, it's painful to watch Yoshiyuki being such an idiot.

I know what you mean. The same thing happened back during the school-trip in season 1 too... "Oh, Yume just CALLED ME ON MY CELLPHONE to tell me that Otome collapsed. I now have to go home, too bad I have ABSOLUTELY NO WAY to explain this to Koko at the moment!" Riiiiiight.....

Wait... wasn't Yoshiyuki's mobile phone in it's critical state that time? I mean, usually when your phone's battery indicator is displayed as red and is blinking with a slant line in the middle it indicates that your phone has a very low power and may shutdown shortly if further use is made. So I believe he was left with no choice but to just look at the time and hope he makes it in time

Because in DC, we never knew that the tree was evil
But certainly, the openings of each DCSS ep has given me funny feelings...like a ominous glimpse into the future. I am scared that Sakura may actually be a hidden psycho character

I think I know why Sakura is resistant to the alcohol (if she drunk any)

She developed resistance from another universe (Higurashi) she drank too much sake.

No, it's no signal. Not no battery.

He was stuck in there for a long time, low battery would've ran out. So, yeah.
