I think it comes down to a lot of people are very tiered of weak heroes who "show their real inner strength" at the end.

yes, a weak hero who grows stronger with adversity is often more relatable to the audience


but sometimes you want a hero who kicks ass and takes names.

That makes you say "That guy is awesome, wish I could do that."
It's refreshing and I think a lot of people are reacting positively to that.


For this series the weak character who is going to grow is Jin, odds are it will be his "inner strength at the end" that wins in the pinch but in the meantime we have Izayoi for him (and us) to admire and be inspired by.

If that's the case, I'm guessing it might have been sent by that group of three in the Opening

Gotta keep in mind that Izayoi has been putting Jin out there as "The Man who will destroy the Demon Lords"

Sure at first the Demon Lords would hear that and chuckle softly before forgetting it

and then a day later the No-Names utterly crush one of them.
not just beat but totally crushed them into dust.


More than a few probably sat up and though "huh....might need to do something about this."

my guess for the next enemies
which will stretch into the final 5 eps
I just get the feeling that all three of them are demon lords...


all just a guess though

I gotta admit my response is the opposite.

At the beginning of this season, some of the more serious-minded ones (read Maoyu) seemed the best, but this has really really gripped me. It's just really great and satisfying.

Times a million. Sometimes you just don't want powerups and learning your true strength and all that, sometimes you just want to relax and see the good guys be awesome.

Oh as an aside: I think there's a bit of a flaw in your theory re: Izayoi:

I liked it, but the problem with this is: the main character is too powerful. I hope they show some of his weakness later in the episodes. I love characters with 3-D personality. I will continue to watch it to see how it goes. It's good, but not great. Well, for me at least.

on the other hand, algol is an interesting read too: (per wiki)


The name Algol derives from Arabic رأس الغول ra's al-ghūl : head (ra's) of the ogre (al-ghūl) (see "ghoul").[24] The English name "Demon Star" is a direct translation of this.
In Hebrew folklore, Algol was called Rōsh ha Sāṭān or "Satan's Head", as stated by Edmund Chilmead, who called it "Divels head" or Rosch hassatan. A Latin name for Algol from the 16th century was Caput Larvae or "the Spectre's Head". Algol was also linked with "Lilith".Hipparchus and Pliny made this a separate, though connected, constellation.
In Chinese, 大陵 (Dà Líng), meaning Mausoleum, refers to an asterism consisting of β Persei, 9 Persei, τ Persei, ι Persei, κ Persei, ρ Persei, 16 Persei and 12 Persei. Consequently, β Persei itself is known as 大陵五 (Dà Líng wu, English: the Fifth Star of Mausoleum.).[26] According to R.H. Allen the star bore the grim name of Tseih She 叠尸 (Dié Shī), meaning "Piled up Corpses" but this appears to be a misidentification.


In another para it goes on how it's linked to perseus, but that's actually less interesting :P

Just found a 4th Indra connection in the show

Kurousagi herself as a moon rabbit ties to the following legend

ep 6

pretty good ep, I guess Kurousagi can match Izayoi (at least in terms of speed shown so far) but I'm guessing strength as well, shes not an Aristocrat of the Little Garden for nothing

and whoa whoa whoa...kind of hinting/pushing/teasing/shipping Asuka x Izayoi aren't we this ep?



Also guessing that is the new Salamandra's leader in the middle then
