Another wonderful episode!
- So Tomoe made some kind of deal with a former god in order to become human but the deal failed. I didn’t understand why the deal failed though. And it seems Yuki died because she fell gravely ill, so nobody killed her.
- Mikage saved Tomoe’s life and made him his familiar.
- I really liked Tomoe and Mikage’s interactions and Mikage is very cool. I like him very much. What I don’t understand is …did Mikage make Tomoe forget all about his past? Or did he only make him forget the pain from his past? Does Tomoe remember Yuki?
- Mikage and his best friend (the other god) are hilarious together.
- What is under Onikiri’s face? What is behind that mask? Tomoe’s reaction left me puzzled.
- Yay!! Tomoe is touching Nanami again!!
- Tomoe, Mizuki and Kurama’s interactions were great. And Kurama singing the ED song was priceless! I was not a huge fan of the ED song but now I am.
-Tomoe is jealous!! He is finally developing feelings for Nanami!!
P.S. One question about last episode…why the dragon king’s eye became so small over the years?

Mikage and Otohiko are hilarious characters though at times I'm disgusted by their behaviors.
I also wonder what's behind Onikiri and Kotetsu's masks...
And yes, he makes Tomoe forget, that way Tomoe can survive the curse. So.. I don't think he remembers Yukiji.
Those three idiots are really something, eh? Mostly it is funny because Tomoe will always resort to violence whenever Kurama or Mizuki teases him.
In my opinion, I'm horrified by Kurama singing the ED song.. Maybe it;s just because it don't really like his voice...
I'm still not sure that he's falling for Nanami... When he sees Nanami, he still remembers Mikage's back when he leaves him...
P.S. I guess it's because it's losing its power. It has been in human's body for so long after all...
Oh, this a great eps considering the differences with its manga. Fast-paced as usual, but not too fast that we can't follow.
To see how Tomoe has changed so greatly to be a fine familiar like he is now really makes me want to cry along with Kotetsu and Onikiri... I'm touched. *dabbed my eyes with tissues*
He used to avoid touch from humans, but now he can touch Nanami so familiarly... *cries again due to feels* (But I guess he forgets his promise? He just pinches her cheeks like that!)
One curious question: Why Kurama is called with honorific "-sama" while Tomoe "-kun"?
But anyway, Tomoe looks so cool in gakuran... I really loves Tomoe's silly look after Nanami gets mad at him.
Those three... what are they doing.. spying on Nanami like that... in their youkai form wearing their traditional clothes... and those dark aura.. Geez. They really are helpless.
But I really love Mizuki's words here: "You've got the face of a lady-killer and you don't know what happens at a goukon?" For me, it's hilarious when another male character pointing out the male character's lady-killer face though he is not a lady-killer despite the face.
Mizuki is extremely cute as a white snake... I really want to crush him. Hee~ Poor Mizuki, he is used by Tomoe like that...
Poor Nanami too.. Tomoe is really not helping things to be better. He keeps saying the wrong things at the wrong time. And Mizuki just have to show up at the wrong time.
I guess no scene for Tomoe and Mizuki bonding time. Too sad. Instead, we will go straight to Mizuki's adventure in the human's world next week.
Ah, my friend will surely be overjoyed that next week will be Mizuki-centred eps.

The best part for me was Mikage lecturing Tomoe. That was very funny.Quote:
Well…so far the only think I didn’t like very much was Mikage abandoning Tomoe like that, why did he do that?! And maybe I’m wrong but I think Otohiko has a crush on Mikage…Quote:
But I guess his subconscious does…and that could be why he is afraid of falling in love with Nanami.Quote:
Really? I like it…he tries to sound so masculine and cool so it is funny , at least for me it is.Quote:
But he was jealous and angry…yeah, I agree that the most powerful feeling there was his fear of being abandoned again but …he was also jealous, and Nanami saw it like that as well. Maybe the anime team is speeding things up (especially Nanami and Tomoe’s relationship) because they have only 13 eps to tell the story?Quote:
Thank you for answering my question!Quote:
Tomoe has come a long way, no doubt about that! Yuki’s death really affected him but thanks to Mikage’s friendship and now thanks to Nanami, Tomoe is a differentQuote:
I didn’t notice Mizuki at all during that scene. I was as surprised as Nanami.Quote:
At least we know he can drive his magic car. ^^Quote:

True. Lecturing Mikage is something to be feared!Quote:
But…if their encounter was destined to happen then he didn’t need to abandon Tomoe, right? But I do agree that Mikage should have had his reasons for doing that.Quote:
Yep. I’m probably very wrong but I do get that feeling during their interactions.Quote:
Okay…maybe he is not falling in love but he is starting to like Nanami in a romantic way.Quote:
I completely forgot about him and then he disappeared…because I have rewatched the scenes before his transformation and I can’t find Mizuki in those scenes.Quote:
Well, it’s more like a carriage, but yeah.Quote:

I’m really going to miss this series once it ends. Episode 11 was pretty good. The first part of the ep made me like Mizuki and Kurama even more. Mizuki was so adorable~
About the second part of the episode…I know that Nanami feels insecure and jealous and that she doesn’t know that Tomoe doesn’t remember Yuki and his relationship with her but…she shouldn’t had taken out her jealousy on Tomoe like that. Instead of enjoying her time with Tomoe like she was doing at first, she let her jealousy get the best of her and ruined her date with Tomoe. Fortunately, Tomoe knew exactly what to do and what to say to make up with Nanami, even though he didn’t do anything wrong (he didn’t tell her about the hairpin because he was probably embarrassed about it and he touched that girl’s hair because he has no clue how handsome he is and the huge effect his words have on girls).
The fact that Tomoe explained things to Nanami after Nanami’s outburst and the fact that he forgave her for behaving like that just shows how amazing he is. Tomoe is so awesome!!!

Well, sometimes a couple (though they are not official yet, but it's kinda obvious they'll be one, so consider them a couple already ) needs to fight in order to get each other better... also, wasn't it more touching that Nanami found out that the hairpin (which caused all the jealousy) was in her hair all those time after she fought with Tomoe?
That was a sweet moment I agree and it did show her how much of a fool she had been.Quote:
Mikage taught him wellQuote:

I really hope this anime has a second season! Episode 12 was another good episode.
- I liked how Nanami was trying her best for Tomoe’s sake. Yeah, I know she was doing it to bring people to the shire but the inspiration behind her actions was Tomoe.
- Tomoe is a very strict teacher!
- Mizuki was adorably hilarious in this episode! I lol every time he “played” the flute.
- Nanami, you silly girl!! She completely misunderstood Tomoe’s words and actions. Tomoe said that because he was trying to protect her not because he didn’t need her anymore.
- Tomoe screaming Nanami’s name at the end of the episode gave me chills, it was so sad seeing Tomoe panic like that.
- And what is inside that chest? A yokai? An evil ghost?

Anyway, I really love this eps for every expression the characters are making, especially this one:
The chibi version appears more often in this eps than the previous ones, and things are getting more silly.
Tomoe seems to be a lot more hospitable to Nanami now.. If we watch the first eps, then jump to this one, we must be wondering what the hell happened between those two until Tomoe changes that much.
Tomoe and the others' reaction when Nanami insists on repairing the portable shrine...
Another favorite scene of mine is when Nanami is asking for suggestions from the shrine occupants.. Tomoe and Mizuki.. No wonder Nanami is asking for Kurama's help (the fact that she sent him a message before the meeting suggested that she knew Tomoe and Mizuki won't be helping at all ), he knows humans the most..
I'm also wondering about the box... I don't remember anything about that.. And Otohiko... I think in the manga, the test he gave her is different... I'll just check later.
Well, an already insecure girl like her couldn't have easily understood what Tomoe's words meant.. It's Tomoe's reputation to say the wrong thing, right?[/quote]
Yes, you’re right. Then Nanami was 50% to blame for misunderstanding and Tomoe was the other 50% for not expressing himself very, very clearly.
That was priceless!! And it was even more hilarious because he did it more than once.Quote:
It’s the power of love!!Quote:
That was funny as well. Nanami is not very good at repairing things, is she?Quote:
I’m going to miss that trio very much!Quote:

A great ending for a great series! I really, really hope there is a second season!!
- I liked how Nanami returned to the shrine on her own; I liked how Nanami was the one who decided to return. She realized that the shrine was her home, that it was the place where she belongs. Nanami’s dance was awesome!! She was graceful, beautiful and so brave. She fought that big and horrible spider with her amazing dance moves. Mizuki playing the flute was as hilarious as it was last episode. I liked how the gang has become one happy family.
- Tomoe was just amazing ! And I would have never thought that a kiss on the hand would be so romantic and sexy! And I’m pretty sure that kiss at the end is not canon but it was amazing nonetheless.
LOL at Tomoe cutting off Kurama everytime. And the kitsunebi can talk?? Not to mention, they are afraid of Tomoe...
And yeah, Mizuki still fails at playing flute.
That was funny I agree. Poor Kurama!Quote:
Kitsunebi = fox fires?Quote:
And what makes it even funnier is the fact that he doesn’t realize how bad he is at playing the flute.Quote:
