Also it's really weird that they redid the art FOUR times. It definitely needed it the first time, but the second was fine, and the third and fourth are almost identical to each other.
that's due to avoiding copyrights since the second one was done by MangaGamer 3rd was by alchemist who went bankrupt and 4th is entergram who released all of the console arcs in one game for switch/ps4 the last version is the best one since it also has a story arc of pre alpha higurashi think fate/prototype
''edit''
whoops got the order wrong fixed it now

Up to Kai ep 19.

I was wondering about this in season 1, but why did Rena change her name from Reina? I mean she stated that it's because she's starting over, but the name is practically identical (in fact I thought it was a sub typo the first time I saw it). It'd be like changing your name from Sean to Shawn.

According to the next ep preview, the things on Hanyu's head aren't horns, but something unspeakable. Oh my.

DEEN mess up rena's backstory in their s***ty adaption on the last arc in S1 atonement chapter there is a reason she changed her name so if you have time read the manga at least for that

Ah, okay. So it's just the anime that kept it in for some strange reason. You'd think they would have removed it by Kai. And now I wonder if she'll actually use it in Gou.

Also it's really weird that they redid the art FOUR times. It definitely needed it the first time, but the second was fine, and the third and fourth are almost identical to each other.
She does use a gun during one scene in Gou, but it's completely different from the one usually in her outfit, so it does appear they're sticking with it just being an accessory.

As for the art, that's kind of out of order, the 3rd and 4th ones were for console releases, the 2nd one was for the western Steam release which came after the console releases. The 3rd one was for the original console ports, then starting from the DS rereleases/new arcs they updated the sprites, which is why they're so similar (There are also other missing sprite styles, like one from a very old mobile rerelease that used Deen's designs, although they were very low res anyway).

Because she wanted to kill a mofo, not give them a bit of a sting.

Finished Kai.

Man that last arc was satisfying. It was a really well-laid-out and (relatively) believable plan to thwart Takano. Didn't really understand what was going on with the post-credits scene in the final episode, though. I also have a couple questions that remain unanswered, but I'll hold off on them a bit longer.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get to Rei before my Hidive trial expired, so I'll have to go elsewhere for that. Kira and Outbreak are not important, right? I'll still watch them, but I might take a short break from the series after Rei.

Also one of the next ep previews mentioned a live-action movie. While those tend to not have good track records, I could see it being kinda fun for this series. Anyone know if it's (or they're; looks like there's more than one) any good?

Kira is very important. Probably the most important of all.

Kira is bad and all fanservice.

Outbreak is a what if type thing. Very different style. Not super important, but it has nice end credits music.

Outbreak is basically dealing with the consequences of adult Rika's interference in the past in the last few minutes of Kai. Those consequences plus her demeanor during the Kai scene invite some questions regarding adult Rika's real intent.
