Kannazuki no Miko discussion thread [Chikane x Himeko]

Post by Luu Sky Sapphire on Thu Apr 12, 2012 9:08 pm

Kannazuki no Miko






<--- Cuz Soma is too sexy for his shirt, right? Akira Okuzaki

We all know the loveliness of Kannazuki no Miko. A lot of yuri fans I've met have told me that this was what sparked their interest in yuri. Um, can you blame them? Chikane x Himeko's relationship was able to outshine a plot filled with battles, the cliche male hero and mechas. Don't forget about the mechas! The highest selling point of an anime/manga series and they were dwarfed by girl on girl love. Eat your heart out, Evangelion and Gundam.

There's a lot to go over with Kannazuki no Miko, but I'll leave this thread up for the MMasses to talk about. Discuss the characters, storylines, Chikane's love for Himeko, the loose sequel, etc. Discussions are a must!

Loose sequel? I vaguely remember an utterly terrible manga that had Chikane and Himeko in it but the only thing those versions had in common with their KnM counterparts where name and appearance. For example it seemed to paint Chikane as a massive slut and the manga itself was very fanservicey.

The orginal KnM seems pretty good though I haven't finished the manga yet but I like it so far.

Ha, what can I say? It's my very first yuri series so it'll always hold a special place in my heart. The male lead was very likeable so you felt sad for him in the end. The mecha element was atrocious (and would have worked better if they used real demonic monsters). Chikane and Himeko are a very cute couple and iconic in yuri circles. <3

I'd so more in depth, but I just woke up and can't think right now. =P

Sequel? Which one?
1. Kiyoshiro to Towa no Sora
2. Yami to Bōshi to Hon no Tabibito (ish, but not really)
3. The fanservice manga: Zettai Shōjo Seiiki Amnesian
And wasn't there another manga? Not the actual Kannazuki no Miko manga, but another adaptation?

Amnesian thats the crappy one. I'd rather have been unaware of that one's existence.

Also from what I heard each of those you mentioned Dash could be read as stand alone is that true? As in they have very little to do with the original story?

Post by SpiralDasher on Sat Apr 14, 2012 9:54 am

Yep, each of them can be read/watched separately from one another- they aren't direct sequels or prequels and each have their own unique plots. Even the names are slightly altered.

Example: (in Kyoshiro)
Chikane - Kaon
Himeko - Himiko

Be warned about Kiyoshiro: the main focus is on a male/female pairing with the Chikane/Himeko characters in the background. Now, normally this wouldn't be an issue for me, but the main pairing, both the girl and the boy, are so unlikeable that some people just watch the series for the Kaon/Himiko parts.

Before I share my fond memories of Kannazuki no Miko, I have to share two videos I've uploaded recently:

Chikane's confession of sin and Himeko's confession of love [Japanese version. Spoilers!]



Chikane's confession of sin and Himeko's confession of love [English version. Spoilers!]



Chikane's confession of sin and Himeko's confession of love. Scene from Kannazuki no miko Ep. 12. Very beautiful scene between these two.

"Priestesses of the Godless Month"
"Kannazuki no Miko" (神無月の巫女)

Now you all remember this scene very clearly, but my goodness, did the dubbed Himeko (Jennifer Sekiguchi) overact or what? ^^;

Magus: I was referring to Zettai Shōjo Seiiki Amnesian. O_O I don't think I've peered into the others yet. Link meh?

Was that aimed at me? Er... Google and Youtube. I haven't watched either series in forever. Amnesian is on mangafox.

Oh sorry Luu I didn't know who you were talking to either. But to be honest I'm not entirely familiar with the other works either I'm just aware of them.

YamiBou?? ö.ö What is that during there?? ;P No, I got your point.
Yes, I think there was another one, but I can't remember it right now either :^) I know it was the manga before Amnesian though. Or am I just imagining it, I can't find anything *ish confused*

Oh, don't remind me. This anime was horrible. I don't know how I could watch the whole thing ô.o But yes, the Kaon & Himiko parts are good :3 I have to say I liked this version of Himeko more. Real Himeko annoys the hell out of me now (for certain reasons and influences, oh well).

I did some browsing and perhaps it's "Himegami no Miko"? I haven't looked at it (or found it) yet, but if it is different, I definitely have to check it out.

There are a couple of Specials of Kyoshiro that have some Kaon/Himiko moments in them. =)

One of the Specials is even supposed to be a spoof of many different yuri animes with the Kiyoshiro characters acting out "iconic" scenes, but I can't find which Special is it. =/

Edit: I found the special which spoofs other yuri series! It's number five:

Yeah, Himegami no Miko (even if the name doesn't ring a bell XD). Chikane numero 3 lost her memory or something. It has some fanservice too but it's not nearly as bad as in Amnesian. It was okay, I believe ö.ö
If you can't find it, just tell me and I will send it to you (I should have it somewhere ö_ö).

I know ;P : D Special Two is still my favourite X3
Nya Nya in Four though ö.ö

And I remember watching Special Five and being like "wtf even??". It still has this effect on me ô.o XD

I found it... but only the site where it links to and it's all in Japanese! Is the one you have in English? Or will I have to rely on Google translate? XD

Four and five are my favorites. Five for the "wtf?lol!-ness" and four because we got to see an over protective Kaon silenced by Himiko's kiss! XD

Himegami no Miko?
Kyoshiro no Towa extras?

Wow, I have a lot of catching up to do with this fandom T______T

Anyone can point me out where to start? I didn't know that Kyoshiro has extras about Himiko and Kaon in them. Where else can I find ChikaHime?

I found it in English (on an obscure blogging site @_@)! Or at least the first few parts. I hope some more gets translated.

While the second extra is extremely cute and I really like it, I'm more of a humor person so Himiko tugging an over protective Kaon down for a kiss got a reaction out of me. It's not that I didn't like number two, I just liked number four a bit more. =)

Oh, I just watched the 4th and 5th special Mikoto Minagi (the 2nd one I already did long time ago) and they are great :D the 4th one in particular, 'cause the other is like ''wth!? LOL'' like you all say Shiho Huit

Personally, I prefer Kaon than Chikane :3 I think her design is cooler I love you (Also, I like her earings :3) and when I watched Kyoshiro I thought it was a pretty fine anime, for me KNM and Kyoshiro are in the same level actually. But KNM has more yuri so it's a big plus Dance

Chikane x Himeko

Normally I don't go looking for yuri in a series, otherwise I'd miss out on something great. In this case I do prefer the more yuri oriented KNM when it comes to it's universe. I'm just used to Kannazuki no Miko involving the lovely Chikane and her Himeko. Everything else is just...there.

Mecha?

This is my favorite show! No matter what, it's the one show that brings tears to my eyes in the final episode! Everytime I think I'll finally be able to watch it without a single tear a ninja comes to cut onions under my eyes!!

The sequels are cringe worthy. I Love Kaon and Himiko since we are able to see the couple lovingly interact with one another but plz someone shoot the main couple!!! Kannazuki manga is also cringe worthy but Kannazuki's drama cds are okay.

Himemiya Chikane is my all time favorite! So many layers to her!! I love how the story progresses between her and Himeko! The first time I watched the show I was loving the art, but when the ep ended with her kissing Himeko I think I blew up fireworks! I did not see that coming!!! Suddenly an average show took on epic proportions, the yuri came to unveil itself in a deep timeless love story!

There are fabulous fanfictions that wrap up the story exactly where the show left off! Every time I watch it, I need to read them and I'm completely content after.

No offense to Mai-HiME purists, but I must raff at you for criticizing Mai-Otome taking things in a new direction when Kannazuki no Miko's sequels (spin-offs?) were not only bad; they did nothing for the little franchise. You take one of the most classic yuri titles that brought circa 2000s anime viewers into yuri and ruined it. They didn't take the series into new heights.

Short rant out of the way, I agree with Cap when it comes to Himemiya Chikane. As I've stated a million times on this thread, Chikane represents the sexually confused and sexually frustrated closet lesbian. She struggles internally much more than Himeko does, you could relate to her. My problem with Kannazuki no Miko is never following up on their present day relationship. A proper sequel would explore their new found love for one another, whilst facing new challenges that roadblock their love. Kannazuki no Miko could of been the series that dealt with homosexual issues and brought a sense of unity and understanding. They were at that point once the mecha and Sohma crapola ended, why stop now?!

Chikane x Himeko
