New OP and ED were rather spoilerific.

So, anyone want to start guessing whether Samekh is the blue Tauburn?

new ED is not bad either.
She saw you. And me. And the dozens of other people who had the same reaction.

no man, It's definitely head, looks like tauburn, and uses a starsword. Samekh is huge, his hand is holding ayingott; probably the big guy near end of op, that tauburn is flying to.
Spoiler for big guy:


The fighting in the op and ed is way better than what we've seen in most the episodes.

Also, be very careful when watching the ED. If you're eating/drinking, you might choke when seeing the new Vanishing Age chicks for the first time. WTF is w/ those outfits.

Simone isn't in the OP! Why?! But Sakana is, which is good.
Also, the shadows over the characters in the ED are suspicious. If I were to randomly guess, the shadow over Sugata looks like Head, only because of the strange hairstyle.

Overall, I like the old ED better, but the new OP better.

Wow Vallen you just blew my mind, I'll have to scrape my brain off the walls now. OP/ED looking good, looks like we might go full steam ahead for the second half.

Fabulous OP and ED.
I thought OP would be the same with Takuto running, but it turned out to be much more awesome.
It's strange they reused a scene from previous ED, also gay Takuto-Sugata moment at 0:42-0:50 made me chuckle.

Nevertheless, both songs are very catchy.

And is there even a raw out?

Seems appropriate that Reshbal would be similar in style to Tauburn. Sort of fits the potential Head/Takuto dynamic. And I think that the fight between those two is going to be a good one. Maybe that's the fight for the end of this arc, episode 16.

I get who the shadow over Sugata is, but who are the other shadows?

Big dude near the end is definitely Samekh. The enroaching red sky makes me think of the Departure occurring (Zero Time disappearing as it isn't needed anymore). There's something about the design though. Like those things that seem to be on it's back and such.

I rather like how both the opening and ending reinforce the trio as well as Takuto and Sugata's friendship.

I wonder if there is something to the way the ending has Sugata facing Keito while Takuto faces Head.

Nice speculation. This would also explain why the two are so totally in sync.

Did anyone else notice Tauburn's design is different in the new OP?

Power-up incoming. Maybe as a result of the seals being broken.

Even so, it does fit to some degree though the path Sugata takes from here will show if the parallel goes further. Of course, didn't Arthur not really want to fight Lancelot and vice versa? It's been a long time since I really looked at several of those myths.

Ha, you're right! Nice catch there. It looks a bit more...streamlined. I'm thinking this is what happens when we go into the Fourth Phase. I wouldn't expect anything to happen with Takuto for the Third Phase though maybe it will.

I think Samekh is an allegory for the King in Sakana's story.. among other things

The King wanted to sleep forever

Kiraboshi reaching phase 5 would mean that he would awaken from sleep

That's why it crushed Ayingott
