@Supreme Marvel:

Sorry, it's a touchy subject for me. There's no nicer word for it. The word gay will have that negative connotation if people continue to abuse it.

@takashichea: It's understandable. I never mean't nothing bad about it, it was a word to describe what I meant. Other words, I felt might put it the way you read it, so many I was wrong anyway. I usually, for exaggeration, say 'gaaaaaaaay' in a funny way. I did performing arts for 3 years and drama at uni for 3 years, many gay people in that field.

@Aleasha: I enjoyed the art a lot. I was expecting guys to be kissing in the next few episodes. So I was put off, but wanted to know for sure, so I asked. Looks like I'll give it a try again.

Thanks all.

@Beelze17: It was just the vibe I got when watching it. Seemed set up for that. I've seen something similar in other animé, thought I'd carry on, then guys start kissing. So it seems easier to just not watch it and ask while watching other animé. That's the reason why I didn't watch the other episodes.

Guys....

Sorry if I'm net editing much this weeks..

its just that there's not much something about Homura in these 2 new episodes.

I saw the spoiler and saw that there are some Homura moments in the episode 9..

I'll start editing articles after I watch that EP.... :)

I have to agree with peoploe saying that the visuals are stunning. It is clearly an anime with a big bugdet, although they could go a little easier on the blue hue. Too much blue lol And finally they put some clothes on Neko even though she still forgets them on occasion lol Story-wise it is very interesting, although I wish they could give us more on the background of the Kings system.

There's definitely some bishounen character design going on here which might be what's triggering that impression, but everyone has the elegant pretty look in this show, not just the guys. Neko and Seri have impossible character designs as well. K reminds me of Togainu no Chi in it's character designs and use of color which is where I'm getting that Boys Love vibe. It's interesting that K seems to have a stronger BL vibe without having any of it's elements, where Togainu didn't care that it's characters were gay for the most part, focusing on the drugs, environment, and violence which just happened to be between gay characters. (I should probably edit that Togainu page, I don't think it's a royal flush they're after, but any hand better than a full house will do, since it's the hand that Il Re is fought with if I remember correctly.)

I had no idea this was a 13-episode anime. Thought it was going to have at least 22. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out lol But anyway, the last's episode cliffhanger was quite interesting. I do hope they are going to wrap up everything in the last two episodes nicely or at least give us a second season.Let's see what Shu is capable of now.

The finale was definitely interesting. Do hope we get another season at some point. Although it was one of the few times where I liked it that the show ended without really explaining that much. Sure feels sorry for Shiro dying although I do get the feeling that they will bring him back since he is the Immortal King after all and the Red King finally got the revenge he wanted for the death of that guy. Btw what is that recent trend with people saying things in the last episodes without the audience being able to hear? So, so annoying. Really want to know what he said to the Blue King.

@ComicMan24: I have actually heard there is going to be another season! I gotta find where I put the site address. But I am pretty confident there will be a season two.
