You know, when Kyoshiro told Kuu about the incidents regarding his brother and AAs, I though this series was far more related to Steel Angel Kurumi than to Kannazuki no Miko.

Now, with the recent developments, I realize this show could be (and maybe it is) a direct sequel to SAK.

Spoiler for SAK and recent episodes of KtTnS:

I don't think that's what Kazu-kun meant. I think he meant "save someone ELSE ASIDE from Kuu to redeem himself." There's a difference between self-sacrification and rescue, you know. (Or perhaps it was worded bad. )

Depending on the person's views, A LOT. Call me odd, but always sypmathize with the good guys. I feel BAD for the person who mourns a partner's passing - which is extremely rare for 'the bad guys'. I sympathize with the girl in love with a guy who doesn't love her back, but is still able to give up everything for him - which is rare for 'the bad guys'. Normally; the girl would want to force the buy to fall in love with her, of course, if the's a 'bad girl'.

I can't sympathize with the girl who forces her rule on everyone. I can't feel bad for the guy who views his partner's death as a 'casuality' and nothing more. I just can't. Again, call me odd, but it's just me.

I understand what you are saying, but that was not exactly my point Of course, most of the time i sympathize with "the good Guys"and i don't like "the bad guys", but that is not exclusively true for all occasions. Also, just because a person is not a saint and behaves in a questionable manner does not make him a "bad guy" out right. And deducting whether the guy is good or bad based on my ability to sympathize with him/her wouldn't make for a very accurate judgment

Lets take Fate from Nanoha series.
Spoiler:


The situation with Kyoshiro is similar to a degree(basing his actions in order to carry out the "will" of his closest family member). And while i am not sympathizing with him out right, calling him a bad guy is a streeeeeetch.

Again - concluding that a character is "bad" simply because i don't sympathize with him is not very objective, because that would make Kira(GS/GSD) the biggest bastard in the universe, because my grandest wish was for him to die.

Well, see, I was saying more over it's makes them a bad guy to that person. I don't mean bad guy - bad guy in this case, more like bad character. (Before I was going on and on about how I sympathize with certain characters.) To them, they're the antagonist of the show. It depends their own personal views. For example, a lot of people (Myself included) would drop this show if Kaon and Himiko were not in it. I'm not interested in Kuu or Kyoshiro, or Taroutte or anyone else prsent in the cast. Setsuna? Yes. But I'd get along fine with fanfiction. If Kaon and Himiko were not present, this series just wouldn't be worth it for me.

In the end, what I was tryin' to say was - depending on the person, they'll either find the character to be a bad guy or a good guy. The cases of Fate and Kyoshiro are hard to classify - since well, yes, they need to be punished for the bad deeds they did. It's a bad deed. It's needed to be punished. There's no excuse for wanting to kill someone (Referring to Kyoshiro). The only way for him to redeem himself is to try to save the AAs now and prove his view has changed. His heart was in the right place, and maybe it's the just sadist in me, but when someone does like that, I'd rather like to see a nice dose of justice either way.

but this is all after kazuya showed up...i bet that before kazuya and his badass attitude showed up 99% of people here were actually starting to dislike kyoshiro for the way he thinks ~ ofc now knowing the situation our opinions have changed (which is what the writers wanted all along ~ dam i dont like playing into someone else's hand )

Both Touga and Akio are from the animanga series Revolutionary Girl Utena, which the translation of Shoujo Kakumei Utena. Touga is a playboy with a dramatic backflare. A pretty boy who's very popular with the girls. Akio is the same - though he is a bit more ... 'crazy'? XD

Also, Touga has bright red hair like Kazuya. Akio/Dios has purply-white hair. Touga and Akio both pretended to be Utena's prince, but Dios is the real one (confusing I know). They're both really dramatic, complete with all the hilarious poses.
Saionji's personality is like Kyoshiro's, but he's got long, wavy green hair.

Any guesses for the ending? There are only three episodes to wrap everything up, plus at least one episode of plain Kyoshiro angst.

On the main website, there are details for the third DVD special, which is coming out in June. It's Kuu's observation logbook on Setsuna...and it shows how she saw how kindly Kyoshiro was treating Kuu, so she imitated.
Spoiler for Setsuna acting like Kuu:

I think we will be getting a happy end with "happily ever after", at least as far as Kuu and Kyoshiro are concerned.

Kazuya will get his arse handed to him one way or another (Perhaps his source of infinite mana gets cut off because he forgot to pay the bills for past few years )

Setsuna might not make it - i can see her sacrificing herself to save Kyoshiro/Kuu or to destroy Kazuya. But i am not sure how would Setsuna continue to live if she survives... I don't think she would be very happy to hang around Kuu and Kyoshiro, with the two of them acting lovestruck and all.

Though i could see Waruteishia turning against Kazuya at some point. I am almost 100% sure she won't be making it.

The bishie squad will turn out to be evil and will get their behinds toasted as well

Well... thats more or less my take. OR we could get the part where Kazuya succeeds in merging the AAs together (would make for a nice cliffhanger), but the end result turns out to be something that hates him. And Kazuya goes down from a heart attack because his beloved Cielo hates him (Or Cielo simply blasts him to moon and then some) ... and after the big fight Cielo splits up in to separate AAs again and every one lives happily ever after...sort off

I'm sad there was no Kaon/Himiko conclusion included in this.

Tsk...

Well... thats mostly because i couldn't care less about them in all honesty I am interested in the Kuu/Setsuna/Kyoshiro/Kazuya/Waruteishia bit. The whole Kaon/Himiko/Mika thing seemed very uninteresting to me. Their side of story was the same stuff over and over again, until the very end. It just failed to grab my attention. I am more interested to see what happens to Tarlotte/Sojiro... though i am drawing blank when it comes to predicting their fate
