Overall Thoughts: Fairy Gone part II or 2nd cour continues on from where the first cour left off from. Whilst the first cour left a very negative impact on many. With it's slow paced, meandering even somewhat confusing plot. I felt that the first cour did an alright job in building up the story of Maryla, Ver, Free and Wolf. Even the world building was okay. Albeit it was a bit hard remembering some of the geopolitics and even the antagonists names. Which is a bad thing unfortunately. And it left quite a few unanswered questions. Part II seeked to rectify that. It answered the questions that the first cour had. And it satisfied me. I really liked that Maryla and Free got their ending. I always had soft spot for Maryla as she was seen as this black sheep or lephr of the village. To see in the 2nd cour that she isn't that, left me quite happy. In short; even though it took me a while to finally finish this series, I actually enjoyed the journey - quite sadden it has ended. Sure, the journey isn't for everyone, which is understandable.
This review covers all 24 episodes. This is a mostly spoiler free review, but does touch on some things that are revealed later in the story: WARNING THIS REVIEW CONTAINS minor SPOILERS. Not since Chaos Dragon have I watched this poor a story (I may go change my rating of Chaos Dragon just so that I can rate Fairy Gone lower than that series). In short, it's the definition of poor story-telling with even poorer characters. Was determined to drop this series after episode eight (and was ready to drop it even earlier). But sometimes one has to stay the course to watch something even when it is this bad. A) It's an experience and B) Had to see it through to the very last episode to determine, if in fact, my reasons for disliking this show were valid...if I had been wrong. I wasn't. Episode 1, you are introduced to the primary and secondary protagonists and a possible enemy (which turns out really isn't). All subsequent characters you meet are introduced the exact same way--and by this I mean they just are in the story and don't know why or care. And this is the beginning of why this series was so bad: 1) Character (insert any name) possesses a fairy, and said character has some troubling event in the past that causes them to be so grim/sad/angry but is never really developed. 2) Characters possess a fairy, which is supposed to make combat more interesting (I suppose). However, these fairies are never deployed in any meaningful way other than to fight other fairies. So...the real combat takes place between the individuals that possess fairies...and these creatures don't amplify said individuals' abilities in any way. So it's almost like the fairies are pointless. 3) Some fairies are stronger than others and their strength have no relation at all to the effort or spirit of the individual that possesses them. Some characters JUST get stronger or weaker fairies. 4) There is no growth whatsoever in character or fairy abilities at all 5) Some characters can "speak" to fairies and some can't, and this helps guide the protagonist along the way and makes other follow her (?). That's it. I watched to the end and this is how it is. Joke is on me for watching the whole thing...and on you if you decide to watch too.
