Story- The second season continues where the first left off, Lag recovering from his first encounter with Gauche or should I say Noir. The story sees a lot of progression during this season, which may explain why its a huge improvement over the first. Lag faces the organization Reverse, which was hinted during the first season and its awesome! Animation- The animation has always been one of the strong points about the series and I think it got better. Examples would be the last opening animation, the brief fight between Niche and Roda, and so on. Sound- The soundtracks for the show were pretty stellar, especially with the last opening and ending. The OSTs will go great when I'm reading the manga. Characters- A lot of the major characters from the first season actually get some good development during this season, such as when Lag went to the lighthouse and when Niche got her origins introduced. During the season I felt that the characters got their development when it mattered most. Although its a shame Garrard's role in the story got thrown to the wayside cause he did have some importance. What's important is that the studio didn't change Lag's motivations, his goals at the end of the story, and that's why I can find myself happy with how the anime ended. It felt faithful with how they handled the main character, unlike how Madhouse handled Claymore, since they were both monthly series from the same magazine that I grew up with. It really sucks how they changed Clare's character at the end of Claymore. Ultimately, I can suggest the Letter Bee anime for people who want to give the story a shot before getting into the manga, cause that's what I'll be doing, finishing where I left off in the manga.
I did a review for the first series, and I will say, at the very least, this season is better than the first. They managed to take all the good things the first season had going for them- the art, the setting, the back story, a few of the better characters, and good music and voice actors, and grow on that. They also managed to fix the two parts of the series that made it almost intolerable- Lag's non-stop crying (oh, it's still there, but nowhere near as much) and the fact that they made the series into an episodic, letter of the week series instead of growing upon a very interesting story. Now, seeing that they have great art, a fairly strong story, good voice talent and music, and some interesting characters, you would expect a better overall score, but this is what this series fails to deliver- and sort of climax. There are probably a dozen different instances where I thought "man, this is pretty cool," but felt absolutely nothing. Somehow this direct manages to take any and all exciments out of all the marque moments in this series, which simply kills it. That aside, I loved the story, just not the person telling it. If you had seen the first season and managed to enjoy it, this series is definitely worth picking up, otherwise, the first season is not worth wading through to simply watch this.
Letter Bee Reverse is the first episode title of the second season. Each season is about 25 episodes. I gave my full review in Tegami Bachi Letter bee but I will say that all episodes emphasize the connections the characters have with each other. The giant bugs use computer animation which led a more artificial appearance in my opinion. With that look, I was always wondering if these creatures were not artificial, or partially artificial. There is a lot more that can be learned about this world. I really enjoyed this anime and highly recommend it.
