This was a great romcom pseudo harem anime.  There are many ways one could do a harem the right way and in the best kind of ways, and this was one of them.  From the start, season two frankly had one of the best first episodes of a season two of all time.  The season very cleverly picked up where the biggest question mark from season one lingered besides the obvious end series mystery, which was the flashback of "Rena" as the mystery girl is later identified as,which happens to be the same name as a relative who passed away. It was exemplary use of foreshadowing and tying relative but loose links of varying degrees central to the plot.  The season closed with a very strong declaration of who Futaro chooses, which makes me wonder why there's a hint for a season three?  If the end question keeps getting yanked around like that, it may very well destroy the carefully laid foundations of the entire story.  Viewers won't like being jerked around after a question was so profoundly answered even if somewhat vague since it was said flat out, but all the hints clearly pointed to a forgone conclusion.  If it stays as it essentially all but flat out said, then it's a great story, if not, the the creators just enjoy playing twisted mind games.  Still, even here, we are constantly shown what if scenarios with all sisters.  Even the winner, though cemented is left with a slightly vague subtlety perhaps to create a continued illusion of uncertainty.  Yet the closing events honestly leave no real doubt.  The only doubt is if we will get shoved a fake jumping the shark plot twist scenario merely to drag on a subtled finality.  I hope they don't because that would probably pretty much ruin the magic of the entire series presented so far.  Then again, the way the closing appeared might also be a third season teaser that will actually play out the same but maybe done as insurance in case a season three fails to materialize as often happens in the fickleness that is the world of anime production. We get plenty of flashbacks and a few subtle cues.  Several mysteries are actually revealed.  The history of the crossing paths is essentially told in full through several flashback sequences.  The sisters solidify a degree of maturity while traversing self doubts, jealousy, and conflicts.  We learn a unique coincidentally similar circumstances between the sisters and Futaro about their family history having curious parallels.  It's also ironic that the past Futaro was much worse than any and perhaps even all the sisters combined at their worst which is maybe the ultimate irony.   Overall, this is one of the best second seasons I've seen in anime and good enough that it might possibly surpass the first season.  In scoring, I felt it fell short of perfect character rating because, the constant jumping, uncertainty, and stand in swap disguises was just a bit overdone and carried on a bit longer and more than necessary or fitting to the progression of the story.  Sound while having no flaws, didn't go that extra mile to have the subtle background noises perfectly added in and music was a bit lacking compared to other anime and I think even the first season.  Most everything else was at or near enough to perfection that such fractional scoring wouldn't be justified even if it wasn't quite perfect.
