So what your saying is that we can't impose economic sanctions or anything on CrissieXD ?

Wonder why it is when I heard that preview about Yuji calling out the one he wanted to protect, I keep thinking he's just going to say his mother or something.

Look again, ChrissieXD was just making a non-serious speculation.

*snicker* Perhaps the calls for an embargo were too hasty...

Pheles loves her freedom despite being a bit on the edge. So it's better that Kazumi become the Flame Haze contracted to Valac instead. At least when it comes to killing enemies, Kazumi would have a talking dagger who would instruct her where and how to stab.

Better yet, how about if Pheles creates an offshoot of the Reiji Maigo and calls it "Kyo Dai" (I think it means brothers in a yakuza way) or something like that? Of course, that's just my opinion since Kyo Dai is an idea I'm already using.


Reiji Maigo Ver. 1.1

Reiji Maigo Ver. 2.0

Reiji Maigo Ver. 7.5

A strong episode I was happy with.

Some comments:

1. Like an earlier poster, I think Hecate lets Yuji live, partly as a consequence of the whole Konoe arc. There's no reason for her to do so, and there's that scene at the beginning where she brings her staff down, and Yuji expects it to be a killing blow. And it's strongly implied that she sees him enter the clocktower. I expect there to be more fallout from the Konoe arc to be shown in the last ep.

2. The theme of Yuji and Shana fighting together was quite well done. I dare say it was a sign of real progress in their relationship, and I hope it leads to them being finally together at the end of this season.

3. I honestly don't know whether or not I want a 3rd season. Whatever they do, I just hope they resolve the love triangle. However, if they *do* do a third season, I can see the writers leaving things ambiguous. Perhaps they'll do what they did with season 1--make it seem resolved, but leave enough room for a reset later.

4. The maniacal mad scientist was well done.

No, you cannot impose economic sanctions on ChrissieXD.

Think about it. Yuji wants to protect the city. Kazumi's part of it, and I don't know why the hell he'd want to protect Shana when she can fight for herself. (Assuming that no crazy stuff happens like Season 1 Episode 21.)

Well, the one thing about Shana is that it has great use music, that's for sure. It's fine if episode 23 is entirely leading up to the (assumably good) episode 24, but episode 24 better be REALLY good. Hecate love.

And I agree with Aquifina. Please have some feeling of an ending and don't leave it as a complete cliffhanger like CG, because SnS 2 doesn't need more bad things.

I don't think it's that much a consequence of Konoe Fumina. Has she ever wanted to kill Yuji? I don't think she has ever "wanted" anything at all. All her actions have been orders from Bel Poel and part of her greater scheme for Bal Masqu. If she ever did wish for anything, it's just Bel Poel making use of her.

I suspect the consequence of the Konoe arc would be more evident in the Statue of Pride, since the emotions and feelings collected give it its mind.

I guess this is wishful thinking on my part that applies to both the novel and anime. Hayato is a character that provides contrast and also good teamwork alongside Yuji; it's really a pity that this character has gone to waste.

Wishful thinking aside, I would still be curious about how Hayato is coming to terms with Kasumi's answer, so hopefully that will be explained if there is a third season. And then maybe a proper exit scene, instead of leaving him lingering in the plot.

Even though it's quite clear that a third season is imminent, I doubt that there will be a cliffhanger ending (this is what happens when you first finish Code Geass.) J.C. Staff using the two extra minutes of the ED to quickly cover some important events is proof that they're at least trying to be able to end it well.

I hate you.

But really, Hecate is great.

The only thing that really made me think was that bird Hecate watched the first time Sociometry played. Maybe she finally had some sort of emotions.

*gives Kazumi to ChrissieXD*

So now everyone's happy. Yuji and Shana can be together. Chrissie has Kazumi. No more worrying about the love triangle


Anyways, I love dantalion and domino. They are great XD
But yeah, I wonder how they'll end the season (and maybe series) in this last episode. A lot is happening, so they'll do it either in a superb way...or they'll ruin the whole series with it XD;

When will there ever be any scenes of Bel Peol fighting? Yuji fell into the darkness below but Dantalion mentioned about the huge power of existence source in the ground that Bel Peol placed a seal over. Perhaps there might be a chance that Yuji can still disrupt their plans for the Statue of Pride?

I just got around to watching this episode last night.

The Good: Yuji continuing to be an anti-Shinji, less commentary from Kazumi.
The Bad: Dantalion talking way too much.
The WTF: Margery getting destroyed by Sydonay. I know it was an ambush but I figured she would've put up a shield rather than take a potshot. Fits her nature I suppose.

Overall, a decent episode considering it's just setting up for the finale. I just hope that the last episode is actually up to the task and finishes strong. It's too bad they didn't condense the whole first half of the series into fewer episodes to give more time to the current developments.
