Oh boy... When this wasn't mentioned anywhere in the forums, I started to wonder if anyone was planning to watch it. And let's get one thing out of the way here: If you didn't like season one at all or dropped it... This season has no reason to grab you. It literally is a direct sequel where you are expected to have known what happened the previous season. Nothing has changed in the story beyond the continuation of the Youmeshi and his attempt not to look too into his spirit shadow You Keika. The Story: This time around we have a story surrounding Tamoku Ki more than his spirit shadow. Last season we reflected on the origins of the Youmeshi family. This season is around the exploits of the once young Youmeshi and what happened with his previous relations to a bodyguard known as Shouken. The story is spread over the twleves episodes, so prepare for there to be somewhat of a buildup to a somewhat unexpected fight. This story would have have been good if there was a reason for the spiritshadow to do something other than constantly tease the shonen ai by kissing a lot. We get some cool concepts and we learn that many things are somehow meant to be. It's not a great story, but it's not too complicated by the end. It's average at best and pretty dull it's worst. The Characters: Surprisingly there's some character development from a few already existing characters. The entirety of the Youmeshi family gets some representation this time round. Including the former spiritshadows and resident demons. This doesn't mean it's a great character development, but it does enough to justify the animation and screentime spent on them. The most is done in the form of the sister of the Youmeshi, who was once pretty much an evil looking character. Her arc is alright and it does have a fairly satisfying conclusion. The usual for the duo of spiritshadow and Youmeshi though... It's the usual. It doesn't go as far as it should and it doesn't do nothing. Animation/music: The character models are alright and pretty much the same as last time. There's a few new outfits and such, but nothing to note to look at. The fights are as usual... Not that great. They exist and sort of look like fights. They don't last that long and most often it just feels like they're not even worth much. It isn't terrible, but it's not really something to watch for the fight choreography. The new opening is skippable. The rest of the music seems like it was recycled from the first season. Nothing wrong with that, but... nothing stands out. Overall: With barely anything added beyond a new sort of story arc, this isn't something to seek out. Check the first season and if you want to try, do this one. Otherwise, it won't really be that enteraining. It's close to average, but it's not amazing.
I love it, I love it, I love it. Its absolutely breathtaking and amazing. The second season has a whole lot more feels than the first one and omgs, thes tory makes you want to cry your eyes out. It heartbreaking. It the kind of anime that leaves your fingernails bleeding by the time you finish it. It's a must for all Bl fans.
Spoilers They took the character development from season 1 and threw it out of the window so fast, so quick. What the hell happened. It is not at all consistent with the season 1. For example, in season 1, we learn that the TANMOKU can't actually ingest any external particles be it anything. That is why, you can't take him to a hospital, he can only eat food prepared at home etc. etc. We were made aware of this when YOU literally killed him by piercing his chest with the sword. So, it should be a major learning lesson for YOU which he for whatever reason must not forget. But, lo and behold, in season 2, YOU gets sad beacuse TANMOKU won't eat the food preparations made by a random lady he met at his school, who also miraculously can see YOU even though he is a spirit and does not even question it once. He willingly risks TANMOKU life again by doing so, although the poison the lady used was weak, it's still poison?! Second example, throughout the first season, we learn that TANMOKU does not lie. He literally only speaks the truth. So, when he says that the boy who died by the river will get reincarnated but it will take atleast a decade or so and that if YOU is seeing him it's because he wants to see the boy subconciously. YOU knows this but he still chooses to ignore this and risk both of their lives again. So, here I am at the end of my rant, dropping this season/series. These are not characters that I wanted to see again. You can make certain changes, sure, but if you take the learnings from the previous season and redo it again and again, it just becomes redundant.
