Season 2 opens right where season 1 left off. Setsuna is lying dead on the remains of the battlefield from the fight between the girls and Kirinmaru. Sesshomaru arrives and offers Towa the broken Tenseiga to use in order to bring Setsuna back to life.
This was an excellent one. I liked the mentor, mentee dynamic between Sesshomaru and Towa. I also liked that it wasn’t easy or quick. It would make sense that it wouldn’t be as easy given the situation at hand plus it raised the stakes of the episode. I also liked that Moroha got a big, solo, fight scene. I don’t think she gets as many chances to really show off her capabilities as I would like but this was a good one. Great episode overall, it had me on the edge of my seat, I didn’t always know where it was going. I was pretty sure Setsuna would be revived but there were a couple of possibilities for how I saw that playing out and I wasn’t sure which one it would end up being.
*Sorry about getting a few weeks behind on this, I plan to correct this in the coming days and hopefully be back on top of it by next weekend. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and have a great holiday weekend*
