Pretty much the only option is to import if they aren't on iTunes (and they aren't as far as I see). I got the first CD from CDJapan, along with several other items. They are a very reliable site. The first CD is currently in stock, the second is up for pre-order with the release date set for March. The second had previously been released a couple months ago but there was an issue discovered with one of the songs that halted sales maybe a week after release as the disc was recalled to be reprinted without that track on it.
If it's on JP iTunes you could buy some Japanese iTunes gift cards and set up a Japanese iTunes account to download. But I think it's simpler to just import the physical CD.
The opening and ending themes are not included on the OST CDs, if you're also looking for those. Those songs, at least the openings anyway, are on US iTunes.
I thought I was cliffhangered at episode 24 into the next season (cause I did not look closely enough). Is it unusual for two seasons of a show to actually have a 12/13 format? I don't recall ever seeing that before.
Yes but the moment when she managed to call him and he realized someone cared enough and was clever enough to get him out was awesome. Having now finished both seasons I am just amazed at how hard I got pulled into this one.
Only time will tell. That ending is a cruel tease though. I highly recommend checking out the manga if you really want more and can't wait. It's good and Kodansha is putting it out in English quickly at 1 volume a month to catch up to the Japanese releases.
Coolness. Been waiting for this one since december or january. Just watched the first two episodes and its got my interest for sure. Was just wondering when the next episodes will come out, but thats been answered. Off to check the schedule and find out when my other anticipated titles will start releasing.
I've only watched the anime and haven't read the manga, so admittedly I don't know how much was Yato's personality and how much was fabricated for the filler arc. Like, I'm not sure if his personality from being a god of war/misfortune (they weren't exactly clear on his worship status) is something that's real, or if his anxiety from Hiyori's memory loss was a real feeling or not. As far as I'm really concerned, the only two personalities I really know about him is his aloofness in his desire to get his own shrine (of which he puts off more pressing matters), and the laissez-faire adult guardian act he put on Yukine
I thought Yukine's characterization was supreme in his whole arc, best characterized by the five stages of grief (albeit in a jumbled-up manner - I think he went bargaining/depression/denial/anger/acceptance). I really thought they put a lot of really good work into his character
I also liked Hiyori's characterization as being an exceptionally unassuming girl that just so happened to get caught up in something she was never intended to be a part of. For once, I really liked the stylistic and metaphorical choice of adding panty shots, because they signified that all she wears is regular boring old convenience store underwear. I didn't notice anything about her personality that could be considered contradictory, since it was established pretty early on that she was really gung-ho about helping people out thanks to her wrestling fantasies
I do not like Kotaku. They are a video game news site, not an anime site, and even then they're pretty piss poor about how they report on video gaming
