Funny thing I actually came across that blog post awhile ago when looking up thoughts about the toothbrush scene. I agree that the second season does try use fan service in a unique way of showing how sexual the characters are trying to be but for my personal experience it was very off putting. Scenes like when Koyomi comes back with the "supplies" and we have that shot of Karen just laying down on the bed and they switch to the panty shot was in my opinion very unnecessary. Yes I get that she is opening herself up to him but I didn’t need that extra service to understand what the hell is going on. Say what you want, the first season used fan service in a much better way of showing character development than the second one.

Also to comment on the overall character development between the two seasons; I disagree that they did a better job with the second season. While they spent more time on the sisters with longer character arcs, I felt as if they dragged too much (especially with Karen's arc which even dipped into the first episode of the other sister's arc). Also they COMPLETELY disregarded the original cast after the first episode (yes a couple of them popped in again but only for a very short amount of time). While you learned more about the sisters, I enjoyed how they introduced each character in the first season much more. They accomplished much more in less time with the characters in the first season than they did with the two sisters in the second one.

All this being said, I will repeat my statement on my first comment I sent you; Nise is still a good and enjoyable show. I just think when compared to Bake they are completely in different leagues and Bake blows it way out of the water. if Nise is a 8/10, Bake should be (in my opinion) a solid 9.5/10 or even a 10/10.

I always thought that Bake had a much more deeper impact than Nise. The biggest issue I had with Nise was the unessasary amount of fan service. In Bake they used it to show the challenges of each character which was ok but in Nise they just seemed to throw it in whenever they could to attract "those" viewers. To me each show feels completely different from each other in terms of their tone and execution. While I do not think Nise is as good or as thought out as Bake, it is still a very good anime. I was only a little skeptical of your reviews since you rated the fan service high season over the more serious toned and much more thought out one.

They just slap you with even more work. And then rant on and on about how their subject is more important than the amount of sleep you get.

Ha! Glad you enjoyed it! WAIT. IT EVEN OUTRANKED UTENA???
