Last ep:

Spoiler :
The ending wasn't too bad. it was a pretty epic battle, which sooorta made up fort he lack of battles in...well, the entire show. I hoped they would make Satan's sob story a lie made to confuse Yukio, but it seems like they played it straight. That mass of mirrors was incredibly convenient, I might add XD

Apparently a movie has been green-lit...I can't imagine what it would cover, seeing as they tied up a lot of plotlines here. Should be interesting.

I watched the first 11 episodes weekly thinking it was great, took a break for a few months came back and WTF?!

This show was awesome until it veered off the original plotline and went into something crazy about:
Spoiler :
Hagaren Viper wrote:Satan. Freaking Satan. I figured they would have an interesting, compelling reason for him to choose Yuri to give birth to his children, but what is the reason? "BAAW I DONT WANT TO BURN THE THINGS I LOVE". What. "BTW what is life?" WHAT. You're totally allowed to take Satan's general 'character' and change it a bit, but this is just...making him kind of a moron. Yuri's reasoning for accepting him was kinda cheap too.

For someone like me who reads the manga, seeing this kinda thing happen just made me LOL. :rofl: I actually sat there watching the last few episodes going "wtf" and mainly laughing at Satan. But I suppose the nice fighting scenes sorta made up for it in the end. :up:

New episodes are actually on Hulu, possibly the only new anime that they've put up in almost a year. Since 1st quarter of January 2016, they've kept a the same few dozen (100-200 or so) older series that they've always had (I mean, aside from the 200 or 300 that they dumped from their service 8 months or so ago) and aired nothing new at all. Seeing this suddenly show up was a big surprise.

Apparently not a sequel, but a new arc that starts up about 2/3 of the way through the original series? Episode one really hits the spot if you've literally got nothing else to watch instead.

The original series pulled a full metal alchemist (original series) and deviated from the original manga part way through, so this series is basically pulling an FMA brotherhood and going back to the source material from where they split off. I read the manga for a bit after the original series but it hit a hiatus and I didn't pick it back up after it came back. I've forgotten like 90% of it by this point which I guess is good as I'll be able to enjoy this new series relatively spoiler free.

Yeah, I was glad that they threw away the last few episodes of Season 1 instead of trying to shoehorn in a fix. They even had flashbacks to that point so you know exactly where the break happened.
