1) Normal Sudoku rules DO NOT apply.
-Each column must contain the digits 1-9 exactly once.
-Each row MAY contain repeats. Repeated digits within a row cannot be in adjacent cells.
-Each box acts as a Non-Consecutive 3x3 mini-Sudoku. So, each box contains three different digits, three times each. Within the box, digits cannot repeat along a row or column and orthogonally adjacent cells cannot contain consecutive numbers (adjacent cells may still be consecutive, provided they don't belong in the same box). No set of three digits is repeated in two different boxes. For example, if box 1 contains 2, 4 and 9, no other 3x3 box can use the combination 2,4,9.
2) Normal Killer rules DO NOT apply: Digits in a cage must sum to the given total and MAY contain repeats, if allowed by other rules.
3) Normal Little Killer rules DO apply: Digits along the indicated diagonals sum to the given total and may contain repeats, if allowed by other rules.
4) Inequality signs point to the lower of the two adjacent digits.

Nice. I think this one was logically better than the first puzzle, but knowing the tricks from that puzzle definitely helped a lot.
@Thank you! I agree, this is a much more interesting puzzle in terms of logic. Hopefully the next version will be even better!
