Tayutama~Kiss on my diety review ( R1 versus R2 Japanese release)

March 9, 2010

And now it is time again to review another show I dropped in favor of buying the R1 release. Will it be good? Will it be horrible? Well let us find out.

First let me reacquaint you with the show: At Yachimata, there is a legend of a deity named Tayutayu-sama who protected the area, but this deity and other so-called “Tayutai” have been lost in time. Mito and his friends discover a relic on the school grounds with mysterious patterns on them. Then, at the opening ceremony of the new school year, an equally mysterious girl named Mashiro appears before Mito. Mashiro is somehow tied to the relic and the legend of Tayutayu-sama. Soure of synopsis: Anime News Network

So after watching the first 2 episodes, I feel this release is on par with the Maria+Holic release that Sentai Filmworks released last month. the subs are the usual yellow, signs seem to be done standard white. When comparing the Japanese R2 release using fan subs as subtitles, they really seem to be very similar in translation.

Along with the complete 12 episodes pf the series, they also included on disk one, the clean opening and closing animation. Also on the first disc you will find the original Japanese promo,

On the second and final disc, the special features are the six mini shorts titled “Tayutama-Pure My Heart”, in the original Japanese releases they put one special episode per disc. but with all of them together, along with a play all feature, you can sit back and watch them all at once and enjoy.

In conclusion I feel this is another must buy, even though this is a more generic niche show than Maria+Holic, but the more we support Sentai filmworks, the more shows they will give us in the future. as well as maybe jump on the blu-ray bandwagon.

Now for the most important part of the review, The Pics, for the R2 Japanese version, use Ayako fan subs for the subtitles.

First the R1 cover

And last but not least, two pics for the encode quality.
I like to use pics without subtitles, so they do not distract from the whole image
