>you mean skills he could pull off because yakou
No.
>>
>>101509592
isnt he going yakou soon? there is no point or time in the story for him to improve.

he's pretty below average tier now.
>>
>>101509668
He doesn't go Yakou until volume 9. We are still on volume 7.
>>
>>101509668
>isnt he going yakou soon
No, he only break some part of the seal and allows more power and better control. His powerlevel is still shit compared to Shaver. He only go half Yakou in vol 9 and with that he still can't beat Kagami.
>>
>>101509732
He goes full Yakou at the very end of volume 9 though. But we won't see him in combat then. That happens in volume 10 and onwards. (Which won't be animated... ever)
>>
>>101509789
Does he fight pic related in volume 10? The lines he said at the end of last episode seemed to set up for a scenario where they'll probably fight later on.
>>
>>101509789
He actually didn't fight in Volume 10 except using Tsuchigumo.
>>
>>101509850
Vol 9.
>>
>>101509850
No he hasn't fought Kagami in the Second part at all yet.

A 100 post Tokyo Ravens thread before the episode even aired?

I just picked this series up and have been marathoning it tonight. Finished episode 8. It's pretty good, I'm surprised.
>>
>>
>>101509937
we're all aboard the natsumoe train of suffering.
>>
>>101509931
Hishamaru fought the sealed Kagami almost evenly in volume 9. I don't think that the fight between Yakoutora and unsealed Kagami will really be something to look forward to. It's like David and Goliath.
>>
>>101510012
So who would be the David and who would be the Goliath?

Didn't Kakugyuouki stalemate Kagami in vol7? We should see it this episode or the next, right?

Kakugyoukis mere presence was enough to stalemate Kagami.

Obviously Yakoutora is Goliath.
Both Hishamaru and Kakugyouki are each on par with sealed Kagami and his shikigamis.

>harutora confirmed for hacking scrub who couldnt git gud

But, anon. Harutora is Yakou, so "going yakou" is just making him be who he is.
>>
It started.
>>
>>101509544
So your trying to saying that Ohtomo used a low spell to kill Douman. Really. REALLY?

>>101509577
Most students can't even do it the point where they can fail.

He only failed it, because of his poor control not talent. already been hinted at very beginning that something not natural about how his spiritual power is working against him.
>>
>>101510913
>Ohtomo used a barrier spell to kill Douman
Confirmed for retarded.
>>
>>101510913
>Most students can't even do it the point where they can fail
They can, just tell them to do it and they will fail just like Harutora.
>>
>>101510559
So how does Kon tun into such a babe? Does she symbolically mature with Tora's powers
>>
Why the hell this gay shikigami chasing after them instead of the supernatural disaster?
>>
OH SHIT
>>
Is it true that the main girl got NTR'd by her own alter-ego?
>>
>>101511147

>>
Harutora's unsealing starts.
>>
You can see that moment on Kyoko's face when her illusion got shattered
>>
>>101511190
Yes it is
>>
>>101511190
They were so close to resolving that shit a couple of episodes ago, but completely dropped the matter for whatever reason
>>
What the fuck happened lel
>>
>>101511401
Natsume and Harutora are hetare.
>>
>>101510953
That's not the spell I was talking unless your trying to tell me Ohtomo defeated douman by doing but a barrier.

And Harutora clearly wasn't trying to cast a barrier.

>>101511059
That doesn't make any sense. What's big deal about Imperial Style spells and high level ones if anyone can understand and just cast it even if fails?

Is spiritual power the only sole defining trait how good shaman is now?

If that was the case why was Natsume surprised he could do it? Why was anyone impressed with Ohtomo at all.
>>
>>101509058

The anime has been hammering us with it since the beginning. Also, notice how the second to last line of the 2nd OP happens to be, "I will be reborn," with a shot of Harutora?
>>
>>101511190

Not the first time that's happened
>>
Someone has mommy issues.
>>
>>101511567
>>
>>101511521
>cast it and it fails
It is not a cast if it fails. It's a failure. You can't use the word cast if the spell is not successful.
>>
>>101511607
>>
>>101511521
Many imperial spells can be used. Yakou wouldn't set up a school to teach anyone who is a spirit seer otherwise. Some do require preparation, a certain amount of skill, or power though.
>>
>>101511401
You mean like Douman showing blowing up their school while nearly loosing their lives?

They clearly currently have more things to worry about for the time being.
>>
>>101511521
>And Harutora clearly wasn't trying to cast a barrier.
That thing he failed was a fucking barrier.
>>
>>101511666
>666
Douman, pls. That aside, you'd think they's both atleast remember. when they're at the other agency, they're completely chill and there's none of that awkwardness
>>
>>101511708
It's a high level barrier. Most people to cast strong barriers need to be in a team in this world.
>>
>>101511760
>It's a high level barrier
Nope. No where stated it's a high level one. The barrier you're talking about needing a team to cast, now that was a high level barrier.
>>
HOW MANY EPISODES UNTIL WE YAKOU NOW?
>>
>>101511844
You only get Yakou at last episode.
>>
>>101511730
You're talking about the same agency that's full of THS members left and right? My point is that don't really know what's going to happen to them right now.
>>
>>101511760
and he failed. casting is not hard. correctly casting and succeeding is.

you have no idea how spells here work

>>101511861

>>
>>101511879
Yeh, fair enough
>>
>>101511760
>>101511828
And also, since you clearly don't know what you're talking about so I'll tell you, the guy that beat Harutora in a mock battle, that was also a barrier.

I don't know how much anime cut out, but he copied Suzuka's original charm spells, the way of using barrier to attack from that guy that beat him 2 episodes ago, Ohtomo's barrier, fighting style and elemental mutual generations, and Kagami's fire spell.

They locked him up and put a curse on him to kill him. Miyaji however changed the curse so it wouldn't kill Amami because he's a nice guy.

Only Douman and Yakou have chance to beat that hairful guy, that's why Genji called him this time. Amami is better than Genji in anti-personnel combat, but he can't run from Miyachi.
>>
>>101518102
Oh he's part of the conspiracy sort of. He follows Genji's orders anyway.
>>
>>101517960
Miyachi works for Genji. Amami is locked up and left to die to a curse but Miyachi decides to change the curse on him to spare him.
>>
Great episode. So much shit going on. Feels very rushed though.
>>
>>101518421
>Amami survives
Fuck yes ;_;
>>
>>101518445
It is. A LN reader had this to say: "They screwed up big time~ Lots of very important details were lost, and others degraded. This episode was just a devolved, butchered version of the source. No to mention they (8bit's staff) were trying a bit too hard in episode."
>>
>>101518445

And to think that 8bit spent so much time on the side-stories.

Oh well, I suppose it could've been even worse. At least 8bit didn't adapt all of the side-stories.
>>
>>101518445
>>101518525
Pretty much every LN anime ever more or less. Some just rush it to a higher degree than others.
>>
>>101518506
Sure, he survived, but....
>They burn his throat and cut all tendons of his limbs so he can't make chants and signs, seal his power and lock him underground, then cast a curse that will kill him slowly in 10 days to weaken any curse he prepared that will activate on his death.
Fate worse than death. Oh God, Amami ;__;

Natsume, Harutora, and Suzuka seriously need to stay the fuck away from Genji. Harutora did the smart move by being on the run.
>>
>>101518867
Didn't Miyachi change the curse so Amami won't die?
>>
>>101518986
Yes, he got spared of that. Can't say the same for his throat and tendons though.
>>
>>101518986

Well, sure, but having that done to him still sucks. Not to mention that he's older and probably more frail in general.
>>
Can't believe they left out the reason why Kagami wasn't around.
>>
So does Genji have mommy issues? It sure sounds like it.
>>
>>101519157
What mommy issue?
>>
>>101519180
He said something like "Mom is not the head of the family" while glaring.

>>101519145

He made a mistake and left Shaver alone but decided to use that to test the students. Kagami was planning on coming back and secretly take control over Shaver. That didn't work out though as Kakugyouki showed up and a stalemate appeared.
>>
>>101520443
He wanted to secretly regain control of Shaver and pretend to be out of control, because the agency will take it back anyway so he could just have fun before that. But came a certain one-armed oni and asked him to not do anything or else he'll also do something.

How can the anime just skip that? That's so important for Suzuka x Harutora development. All my hate.

That's not the main pairing, though. Skipping it is fine, as much as some people say otherwise.

Although I do agree that it's been cutting a lot of character development.

I recall LN readers saying something about Natsume using Hokuto to fuck with her ying-yang energy so she would emit a male aura to trick people.

Maybe since Hokuto got KO'd she couldn't do that anymore and Kyouko saw her true aura?
>>
>>101527727
Information probably. Genji seems to be against Miyo after all.
>>
>>101527765
And? He's useless anyways. He's pointless from a plot perspective now.
>>
>>101527857
He can always teach his skills to a successor. Maybe that's why Touji is with him during the Timeskip?
>>
>>101527916
Must be a bitch to try to communicate though.

Can't talk.

Can't write.

Can't use sign language either.

Does he bang his head on a keyboard to painstakingly type out lessons to Touji?
>>
>>101527727
He has some curse that activates on his death, you know death curse on the one that kills you and all that jazz. They need to weaken him and kill him slowly.

>>101527857

So can anybody explain to me what the fuck happened to Harutora this episode that gave him bullshit shonen powerup #347?

When he commented on the seal on his left cheek I was expecting him to say
>oh wait
>if I don't have enough spiritual power
>I'll just borrow Natsume's

Instead we got some sharingan super-spiritual sight and perfectly ripping off spells bullshit.

The fuck happened?
>>
>>101528007
Why can't they use magic to heal people?
>>
>>101528177
ur mom happened. Read the LN.
>>
>>101528177
He just applied what he's been learning and seeing instead of just spamming weak spells.
>>
>>101528225
Well, Ohtomo is still missing a leg, I'm assuming even if they could heal people to a limited degree using magic they can't fix things like missing limbs or roasted throats.
>>
>>101528177
He broke part of the seal that locked his powers...
>>
>>101528263
>>101528324
So he always had the talent to analyze and immediately reproduce spells without any practice, he just didn't have the raw spiritual power to perform them?
>>
>>101528441
... more like his powers were out of shift because of the seal, so he broke the seals and started imitating others (using his knowledge as Yakou)
>>
>>101528518
>(using his knowledge as Yakou)
No.
>>
>>101528518
He didn't use that knowledge at all.
>>
Why does this show seem like it's making less sense as it goes on?
>>
>>101528538
>>101528552
Wait, really, so he just analyzed those spells and shariganed them like nothing, just by watching people?
>>
>>101528597
No.
>>
>>101528441
I'm pretty sure it's the other way around. Harutora had the power, but not the ability. Keeping Kon materialized is a pretty big deal, since it requires a lot of spiritual power. This is why everyone is amazed when she first appears, but then they write it off as a perk from his bloodline. I think.
>>
>>101528596
Because adaptation decay. Read spoilers to fill in the blanks that the anime omitted or changed or rushed or screwed up.
>>
>>101528596
Because the anime is a train wreck.
>>
>>101528301
I'm calling bullshit.
There's a ritual that can fucking revive dead people, who, being dead, probably have bodies that are in pretty shitty condition, yet you can't just regenerate a goddamned leg?
>>
>>101528779
But that's forbidden magic, anon!
>>
>>101528779
Better off killing Amami and then reviving him.
>>
>>101528779
Losing a limb results in greater spiritual power. Reason people don't do it to gain more power is because field work is still field work.
>>
Can anybody explain to me why Suzuka, aka Divine General Prodigy-chan, was so fucking useless this episode? Didn't sensei unseal her power? Did they reseal her afterwards?

Also is Touji x Suzuka going to become a thing, because that's the vibe I'm getting.
>>
>>101529103
They resealed her afterwards. Plus she was the one to cause damage to him other than Hokuto.
>>
>>101529103
She got resealed. She barely has magic power with the seal on. Being a prodigy and all, she uses quantity to try to make up for lacking of power.
>>
>>101529103
Because Suzuka has zero experience against spiritual disasters, she's a researcher and a fucking kid, divine general or not. The Ohotmo stuff was just a temporary unseal, her power is still sealed.
>>
>>101528597
In the LN it's been clear he has been studying those techniques. Not so in the anime.
>>
>>101529879
Goddamn this fucking anime is a trainwreck of an adaption.
>>
>>101528597

Otomo's battle with Doman inspired Harutora, so he started studying even harder. He knows the spells because he researched them.

Bear in mind that Harutora is actually a pretty good student - he knew nothing about onmyoudo but still managed to pass his first year. He had a lot of help, but it's still pretty ridiculous considering the level of the other students.
>>
>>101530094
And yet the anime tries its hardest to make us believe he's an idiot.
>>
>>101530680

Mediocre adaptation is mediocre. I suppose I could be mad about it, but there is no point.
>>
>>101530938
Madhouse adaptions for the most part tend to be worse than this.
>>
>>101530994

I know, but knowing isn't much consolation.

He should skip the short stories and go straight to vol 5. Well, at least we're going to see Natsume pretending to be a cat and molested Harutora whole night.

The new chapter confirms Natsume has a pitful bust:

Are you fucking kidding me? This guy just pulled off the sickest deception ever last episode and immediately after he bites the bullet? Please someone tell me he's not actually dead.

Also holy fuck I haven't read the LNs, but not only was this episode a train wreck, but the budget vanished into thin air. There is far too much to criticize this episode for, but I'm not going to waste my breath when it should be obvious how fucked up it was.

I'm probably going to pick up the LN now, once the anime is over because from here until the end I can only assume things will continue to get worse.

Just watched the ep, got some questions for LN readers since It's obvious the show glossed over this.
A. why did the spiritual disasters pop out of that guys glove at the beginning? I can't help but feel I missed something there.

B. I imagine the reason Kyouko was bumbling like a retard during shaver chase scene had something to do with Hokuto vanishing, correct? if not, what was the reason for it?

C. Is shaver actually retarded, or was there a reason for his autistic rampage?
>>

>>101534807
You know, now I really wish you didn't show me that. Now, I wish that they actually just killed him there.
>>
>>101534661
Not LN reader but I've read some spoilers.
A. It didn't come out of the glove. It came from the staff-like thing the dude was trying to grab. It got stabbed when Shaver stuck a sword through the guy's hand.
B. Guessing here. Women and men have different auras in this series. The whole reason why everyone thinks Natsume is a guy is because she has a guy's aura. That was made possible through some kinda spell and assistance by Hokuto. With Hokuto outright defeated, Natsume's real aura, that of a girl, might have leaked and Kyouko could see it.
C. He's crazy in general but he went even more crazy than usual because he got affected by the spiritual disasters coming out of that stick.

To be honest, I think this is the case with A LOT of adaptations. Especially ones where they try to cram in 9 volumes into 24 episodes.

Optimal numbers is probably around 4 or 5 episodes per volume or about 6 volumes in 24 episodes. However.. ending this series at volume 6 would pretty much guarantee us not seeing any more material animated since it doesn't really start showing us the goods until volume 6.

Regarding Kyouko getting all paralyzed might be because she isn't really used to situations like the one they were in. Remember, in all other cases besides the Kodoku/BatshitHisha episode she has had the support of divine generals and big friend and such.
>>
>>
So cute.
>>
>>101536132
Yeah the last time they faced someone alone was that scrub in volume 2. They had help in the other incidents.
>>
>>101534807
And add some left out details.

Genji also cast a seal like the one with Kagami and Suzuka, but this seal is way more powerful and completely remove his spiritual powers. Also the cross cut made from the sealing spell along with other wounds started to get infection, because they didn't bother to treat those wounds. He could have died just from infection but they cast a spell to freeze his body which also delayed the spread of infection. Being dead is probably an better option than this suffering. >>101533869

Answer for A is that the rod was a spirit disaster control tool. Or rather it controls miasma to make spirit disasters.
Answer for B is simple fear. She was in shock since no competent adults are around to save their ass.

So why did he just suddenly turn away from Natsume to attack Harutora? Did he sense something?
>>
>>101537489
Well he didn't drop Regios and that only had only a twelve episode anime. As long as the Chinese have translated it he will do it. Unfortunately novel 10 has not been translated yet. Neither has the first EX novel but that's a sidestory volume.

>>101537630

>>
>>101537812
ED1 was so much better.
>>
So they already spent their budget or something? The action was so fucking awkward and they barely animated or showed the other dudes at the scene.
Also why is no one surprised that harutora is fucking godlike now for some reason? I guess natsume having boobs is more important
>>
Why did the spoilers for this sounded much more cooler than what actually happened?

Was this scene overhyped by the LNfags, or is the studio seriously that shitty? The fight against D was also rather forgettable, yet the LNfags said that one fight would be fucking great.

I've read the first 2 volumes of the LN translation, and so far I've liked it a lot better than what the anime did with those two parts. But I'm still surprised they would fail so hard at working on the parts anyone would have expected to be the coolest, and what should have been their ace under their sleeve if they wanted this anime to sell.
So, that's why I'm wondering if it really isn't their fault, and the scenes weren't actually that great - yet having read those 2 LN volumes make me think they really are that shitty.

That bothered me, too. Harutora looked as strong as a divine general there and nobody really said anything about it. I'm sure they'll go into that next episode, though. I hope some of the higher-ups start talking about him, too.

>>101538423
You don't know how strong a divine general actually is.

I put this on hold somewhere around episode 5 because I got bored. However at some point I got spoiled about the Yakou reveal and thankfully that put a different spin on the show and I watched up to episode 16 hoping at least one of the characters would have noticed something was up.

I'm not going to get to see the characters see the reveal until like episode 24, am I? Will the memory alterations/switcharoo even be addressed before the anime ends?

If only the LN translations were going faster, I'd pick this up and binge the shit out of it.

So I'm really confused about this Twin Horn Syndicate shit. There are so many fucking names to remember.

So the magical bureau is working with them. That was the whole thing at the end, right? Now Amami's assistant-guy (the guy he fought last episode), was he really a real person at one point or was the girl him the entire time? And who the fuck is the Souma family? I don't get the connection; is that girl like Suzaku's sister or some shit? And at the end Amami revealed he was on the line with Kyouko's grandmother... right? I'm not even sure if that was what it was... his lines made it confusing. Why would he even do that, did he suspect something beforehand?

I'm pretty sure I'm fucking retarded because this anime can be confusing as fuck. The Ogre Eater guy isn't working with those faggots is he?
>>
>>101542781
I want to impregnate Suzuka and then take responsibility.
>>
>>101543118
Hirata was suppose be an undercover agent in the spirit division in the incident 2 years ago. He was replaced with Takiko. Ogre eater is not working for them.
>>
>>101539148
If you had paid attention there was one subtle clue that most people probably chalk it up to nothing. Natsume's shikigami listen to Harutora. During the fight with the Nue Harutora had given Hokuto a command and he had listened to Natsume's surprise. Also, I remember Hokuto starring Harutora down at one point relatively early in the series.

>>101543118
Okay, so in order. The magical bureau isn't working with them "officially" it's pretty much only the 3 that were currently in the room that actually did stuff. The assistant was once upon a time a real person who may or may not be alive as of right now. The Souma family was a family that was a large part of the previous "Spirit Bureau"(that was pretty much a front for Yakou worship) and they were also supporters of Yakou back in the day. Also, Dairenji Shidou was originally a member of the Souma clan but he married into Dairenji iirc.

The thing with Amami saying he never refused a call from a woman was most likely him realizing that she probably had seen something in the stars and not that he was wearing a "wire".
>>
Does she realize it was Harutora? (assuming it was his, because the guy looks like him in the flashback)

And what was the promise, anyway? Some generic 'lets get married when we are older' promise?
>>
>>101543472
>Does she realize it was Harutora? (assuming it was his, because the guy looks like him in the flashback)
Yes
>And what was the promise, anyway? Some generic 'lets get married when we are older' promise?
She lost her ribbon, he promised to find it.

I'm so disappointed that most volumes are being so rushed in the anime and that we won't be getting a S2, especially since I doubt we'll ever get to read the end of this series and I'm really enjoying it.

Read thread. Anime skipped how hype bakatora got after Ohtomo's fight and how that got him to start studying hard.

And his ridiculous-level power was sealed, at best he's unsealing.

>>101543922
No. He learned the right spells and started undoing his seal.
The Kagami flashback from last ep should've been enough to tell you that he figured out how to get/start getting his "gears in synch" anyway.
I know the anime cut a whole lot of shit, but sometimes it seems people are being purposefully obtuse.
>>
Ok this episode kind of threw a lot in 20 minutes.
So Shaver was fucking useless besides the fact that he was a plot tool to get Harutora to FULL POTENTIAL?
And Kon and Harutora are in full sync now b/c of this , just like before.
And why did Kyouko have such an adverse reaction? It seemed like she'd be ok with it, she figured out what was going on, she's not dumb.

And i'm sorry if I keep on going but Amami fucking died???

Also I agree with whoever up top said that the girl's crying in this show is always very cute.

She panicked. Seeing Natsume's OP dragon being stabbed froze her with fear.

If only, anon. If only.
>>101544171
But the anime, for all its flaws, did give you enough to figure out something's up with bakatora since ep1.
And this ep had the flashback to Kagami's speech about how Hautora's power wasn't being used properly right before Harutora figured out how to start using it.

Hell, fucking i-do-what-i-want Hokuto obeyed Harutora during Chimera Dance without any fuss when Natsumoe implied it took her a long time to even get Hokuto to listen to her. That alone should've tipped you off.

So is there anywhere I can read a summary of all the shit they skipped, since the LNs haven't been translated this far yet?

>>101544503
The part where Hokuto and Yukikaze "obeyed" Harutora felt like the earliest tells. The part where Harutora says something about "Tsuchimikado blood give me a hand" when tossing shit into the link during episode 3 and he sees a flashback of Yakou was pretty much cementing it in stone. In the novels it's more obvious than the fact that Natsume has a nice and flat chest.
>>

He's not Yakoutora yet. He just has the crow coat equipped with a few memories brought back. He becomes Yakoutora after the battle. Sealed Kagami is the last boss for Harutora though. Harutora loses.
>>
>>101545138
Lack of budget.

I'm pretty sure they know that the tasty bits don't come until volume 6:ish. I think 6 began at episode 13 or 14. If the series had been 12 episodes the interest from the people would probably have been kinda low making a second season incredibly unlikely effectively making volume 1-5(4?) all that would ever be animated.

The move they made was cut shit up like crazy to try and fit as much of the tasty bits in(sadly failing) to make sales and interest higher which in turn makes for a larger chance for a "second" season further into the future.

They were somewhat damned if they do, damned if they don't with this series, some of the "extras" could easily have been chopped off but for some reason they were left in and lots of cool scenes were cut instead.

I suppose they could've ended @ Vol 3 like how Unbreakable Machine Doll did it, 4 episodes per volume or so but I doubt it would generate enough buzz at that level.

I didn't say he wasn't. I'm saying he's one man against 12 other extremely high level onmyouji.

>>101545586
>How many Divine General at most he can take on though?
Depends, each DG's has their own power level, so it'd depend on the combination.
>How about the past Yakou?
Think of past Yakou as lost memories, not a separate entity. Like a severe case of amnesia.
So past Yakou could take on the same amount as current Yakou.
>>101545707
>So basically Yakoutora is just Harutora with Yakou's memories and knowledge?
Kind of, yes.
There are some changes, like he's no longer head first into battle, preferring to plan ahead, but yes.
Like I said, a severe case of amnesia would be the best way to put it.

Yakoutora has full control of his power but memory of Yakou are still slowing flowing in. But he gets instant understanding of spells that Kagami used and counters them with other spells without knowing why. Kagami still has upper hand due to more battle experience and imba teleportation step move. I think yakoutora is still no match to those battle division divine generals, (yes Suzuka is shit even unsealed.)

What happens to LNs and mangas whose anime adaptation fails?
Do they just keep going like normal?

God dammit otakus, where the hell are you? There are a lot of good-looking girls in this show. And god dammit fujoshis, slow down.

Oh, I noticed stuff like this and more. That's the reason I took the series off hold. Stuff like Harutora's background being said dragon when they showed him when one-armed-ogre asked Douman about him. Easily transforming the large amount of half-ogre magic on the staff into something controllable. Memory swap. etc.

My desire however is for the other characters to realize how awesome the MC really is. I have a thing for seemingly weak characters unlocking their hidden potential and making everyone realize that they're fucking awesome.

Why

>>101545904
I don't remember them all, but weakest is Suzuka, strongest is the guy who fucked Amami up, then you have Kagami and the Tengu guy (forgot his name), and you can see how much half-sealed Bakatora did againt Kagami >>101545918

>How about their personality?
Think of it as someone who was amnesiac for years and then regained his memories. There are slight changes in how he does things, like being more secretive and planning ahead instead of going head first, but bakatora is still bakatora
>>
>>101546211
Because StB spends all their budget in the right places.

So what happens to all of harutora's friends after he becomes yakoutora?

TR has shit girls, good everything else

StB has good girls and shit everything else

The Omnipotent Sword, so he is like second or thrid strongest? Good enough, He is my favorite character so far.

How strong is Douman in his prime?

TR girls are better than the StB ones, those whore only want to get their blood sucked.

>>101546211
La Folia gets my dick harder than Natsumoe, and we all know the 11's think with their second head (thus IS S2 sells way more than it deserves)

>>101546032
My problem is AFTER vol10
>>101546149
this anime was made to promote the LN, so they'll continue on as usual. Plus, they're selling rather well anyway.

Late typo fixed but it was triggering my autism. And I've read the thread some more and got my answer. Damn, if you didn't know the LN spoilers you wouldn't know what the hell was going on in the anime.
>>
>>101546211
You need to think that if you're interested in some anime adaptation like TR you're going to buy the LN instead of the anime BDs, more if the anime is a fucking bad adaptation like this case

Fan gay ;_________;

>>101545454
Why was Kagami sealed? It doesn't look like he's sealed at all after what the anime has shown him doing.
>>
>>101546530
Probably because Shaver went wild and he was penalized for it.
>>
>StB
Boring overpowered mc
lewd sluts who beg for the d

fights are all technical and not boring power level battles

>Like I said, a severe case of amnesia would be the best way to put it.

It seems like his personality has changed a bit to match his former one, though. As recovered memories and experience can still shape his personality even after a prolonged amnesia.
>>
>>101546566
StB have no progression, they are all individual arcs to show off a different character but the story goes nowhere and they don't explain shit about most of the things that happen.
>>
>>101546566

What the heck is with the fanbase wars in this thread? Take it out of here.

But I like the TR girls. All 2 of them (plus Kon).

But what about useless big tits?

You are after all the sum of your experiences. Which would reasonably make an influx of memories change you a bit.

She's like Tohka only more useless but with a brain. Thank god she isn't maingirl.

Natsume is on the run with the Tsuchimikado. Suzuka is working with Takiko, Kiyoko is with her grandmother, Touji is with Amami, while Tenma is Tenma.
>>
>>101546920
Cows aren't people anon.

>>101546194
Kon had some good images go up immediately, then it died off real fast.
>>
>>101547042
Why is Suzuka working with Takiko? And I thought she was scared of her dad but why is she with him in one of the Vol 9 illustrations?
>>
>>101547042
>Suzuka is working with Takiko
You fucking bitch.
>>
>>101547045
Is that you Suzuka?
>>
>>101546530
He was sealed by Genji and used as a battle hound. Before he was tamed, he and shaver probably went on rampage and out of control (well you can sorta tell from his personaliity). he is still strong as fuk even he's sealed and hard to imagine what he is like at full power.
>>
>>101547042
>Tenma is Tenma
Alright.
>>
>>101547042
>Natsume is on the run with the Tsuchimikado.
Wasn't that Harutora? I thought Natsume wasn't being chased or anything.

>Touji is with Amami
But isn't he pretty much dead?

It's funny because I thought I was going to enjoy StB more than TR.
How wrong I was.

>>101546807
I agree it is improper, but I guess people are just frustrated this show isn't doing well.

>>101546938
This. Like I said earlier: Harutora suffers (suffered?) from a severe case amnesia.
>>
What's going on with the other countries in TR? Do they have magic and spiritual disasters? Is their magic completely different? Do foreign countries want to get their hands on Yakou? Or is it like the anime and other countries don't exist?
>>
>>101547195
Why are the Tsuchimikados running away anyway?

Oh shit, that got really dark and serious all of the sudden. Darkness Emerge indeed.

How much are they going to animate in the remaining 7 episodes? The 10 volumes, so that they could theoretically make EX a second a season? wishful thinking ;_;

>>101547247
Because Yakoutora is a terrorist.

is this confirmed? sources pls

No, THS is just calling him a terrorist so the Onmyo Agency chases after him aswell.

>>101547689
THS?
>>
>>101547743
Twin Horned Syndicate, I suppose.

I know Yakou dueled against D in the past. How did that fight go? Who won? Has it been discussed in the novels?

Twin Horn Syndicate

Twin Horn Syndicate.
The bad guys.
>>
>>101546323
TR has Natsume, Suzuka, Kon, and Takiko so you're wrong.
>>
>>101547689
No he's a terrorist because he used the Taizan Fukun ritual on Natsume.
>>
>>101547836
No, he's a terrorist because he still fucked up the Taizan Fukun ritual and Natsume is now stealing more than just Hokuto's name.
>>
>>101547629
He hasn't gone out of his way to harass Americans(who are mentioned in the novel) despite being a Japanese Imperial officer so no.
>>
Man this thread got pretty far pat bump limit.

I like your way of thinking
Last threads have always been suzuka, might as well change
>>
>>101547240
Don't really know. All I know is that Genji meets with Americans. This urban fantasy is pretty much a Japan in-fighting struggle unlike other series I could mention that are popular right now.

Same here

Read the thread, I know it's a lot, but it'll give you a pretty accurate picture of what to expect out of the show so you can decide for yourself
