Seth, Mélie, and Doc encounter new allies in Caislean Merlin—the stronghold of the Knights-sorcerers, a group that is also after the monster called Némésis. But Caislean Merlin is plagued by the Spectrum Némésis, mysterious beings that are rumored to be harbingers of catastrophe. Will Seth be able to discover the secret behind this new form of Némésis? His adventure accelerates with the addition of Ocoho, a girl who hopes to become a Knight-sorcerer, a farewell with Mélie and Doc, and a clash with the malicious Merchant-Barons! And all this with the Inquisition still at his heels!

The second season of radiant is a much better in many ways, so if you were on the edge after season one, then go ahead and watch season two. That’s being said, many of the problems that were in the first season are around if only slightly. So, don’t got getting your hopes up Radiant is still a b-, b tier shounen anime so don’t go in expecting MHA or demon slayer Also if you are not sure if you should watch the show yet are reading this review then the second season does make it a little bit more worth, even though the second season came out relatively recently hopefully they get the opportunity to finish the series. (I haven’t read this manga so I'm not sure how long it would take) Time to go a bit more in-depth spoilers for the first season is all you need to worry about The animation this time seemed a bit more vibrant which was nice. The upscale of quality was noticeable for me since I watched the two seasons back to back but there are some points of scene being wrong. Eyes too far apart, some front shots make people look like wreck it ralph and some fight scenes feel a bit lazy, that is only because of the clichés in the action anime genre. The sound oh boy the sound. There was certainly less pointless yelling, but the ambient noise was almost nonexistent. It seemed to only appear when there was an important scene. Despite a city street being packed with people only whispers can be heard, a battle going on? You can’t even hear cannons going off I the background. The worst thing must be the voice acting (in English). Despite how you feel about dub or sub this show’s first season wasn’t bad and all the returning characters did a better job than before. The problem is the new characters specifically ocaho and her knight captain I don’t know if they were crunched on time or if it was the writing but damn it doesn’t even come close to the Japanese voice actors. Only a few scenes near the climax of the final arc are given sufficient effort. The music: the op was really good, and the ep was fair but sometimes I did decide to skip it because it will get boring after a few episodes The story: overall the writing was better from story a telling perspective and a dialogue perspective. The big problem is that Seth is not active for most of the story. Granted I don’t believe that this is a show about one person since the two female protagonists are given the same if not more screen time. This does leave his motivations and the emotional payoff for him to be wasted. And doc character literally got a buff for real it seemed so out of place no mention of his ex Machina moment and came so far out of left field that no one would have guest what had happened. The title card sort of spoils and gives false pretenses to characters in the story which I thought was strange. Also, there is a sudden reveal of a character and if you hadn’t guessed it by episode 2/3 then you aren’t paying attention the show practically screams into your face about certain character arcs later in the show. to wrap it up, watch It in Japanese, if you can’t get behind the story and character motivations by episode 5/6 then drop it otherwise the show’s notable improvement does give me hope that season three could be even better. One last thing: SPOILER TIME. there is a pretty weird scene where the queen (who is a great character this season) gives ocaho some advice. she tells her that essentially that no matter what she does men will look down on her no matter what she does because she is a woman. The whole woman power feminist scene feels incredibly out of place ocaho because of her insubordination and lack of ambition that the show clearly explained to us was the reason why she wasn’t as high up or praised as her two childhood friends who were male. Also, her captain was also a man how scolded her on failing to maintain her position during an attack, she volunteered to be in their military, she broke ranks despite it for a good cause. Also, throughout the show no man ever looks down on ocaho for her abilities but simply her attitude during the first 8-9 episodes. Most of the males in the show repeatedly help her and praise her for her skills and in the end, they make her next in line for the throne. SOOO why was the woman power thrown in them? Especially since this show is riddled with good female characters, it changed the motivation of ocaho from I need to save the people as much as possible to I'm going to stick it to my commander and prove that I'm better. It makes her character prideful, then they reward her for it. It is poor writing and put a blemish on a character that was otherwise pretty good. The second season of radiant is a much better in many ways, so if you were on the edge after season one, then go ahead and watch season two.
