"Souma has sworn to be Himeko's protector no matter what happens, but in Chikane's mind, that was a place reserved for herself alone. You see, try as she might to deny it, she loves Himeko as more than a friend. Her feelings are of a more romantic and carnal nature. Her love is more than the Platonic that Himeko feels for her. As she sees Himeko and Souma start to develop a relationship she begins to suffer an Anakin Skywalker temptation by the dark side, in the form of one of the Orochi necks showing Chikane her hidden desires. Or at least what the servant of evil imagines to be her lust. And yes, the Necks are still around, and one of them is even Souma's real brother. Meanwhile, Himeko and Chikane's efforts to revive the warrior that will reseal the Orochi continue to end in failure, probably due to Chikane's less than pure conflict of emotions about Himeko.
After watching Volume 1 of Kannazuki No Miko I found the show interesting and intriguing but not on the top of the entertainment list, but Geneon has been putting shows like this out lately. Shows which you can't judge based solely on one volume. The same can be said for Starship Operators. Yeah, there's plenty of cheeseball mecha battles here and the Orochi are still downright goofy, but the cornball elements of the show give you a breather from the intense melancholy that suffuses this show. That sadness of course stems from Chikane's tragic love for another woman who doesn't have a clue to her friends true feelings. The fact that some of the characters are turning against each other because of love just makes it sadder. So it's almost a welcome relief to see evil nurse catgirls calling out battle attacks from their mecha to let you catch your breath from doomed relationships. This is a show that just gets better and better.
I would also highly recommend Starship Operators."
