As many might know Gonzo is known for making a few really good shows; some decent stuff; a bunch of mediocre to bad anime; and Rosario + Vampire Capu2, a show so bad it inspired Miyazaki to state that “anime was a mistake”.

Right from the start you can tell this show must have been some sort of bad, late april fools joke directed to the manga fans because about ¾ of the anime are bad filler. The worst offender is the 8th episode, which is just 22 minutes of bunch of unfunny short sketches.

There’s also next to no progression or character development until the last ¼ of the series which suddenly follows the manga and in a single episode develops the plot and the characters a lot more than in the previous 9 episodes.

Animation-wise is still as good as the first season (AKA it was decent) with its trademark overabundance of panty shots, boob jiggling, and male gaze (Funnily enough some of it was addressed in episode 8 but as expected it all amounted to nothing). There was next to no variation in the character’s design and they remained on model most of the time.

The OST was forgettable to the point I can’t remember any single track of it. The opening and ending were better than the ones in the first season but they still were a bit generic and nothing worth listening more than once. Voice-acting was fine like in the first season.

In short, skip this abomination and go straight to the manga. This dreck is not worth your time.

Disclaimer: Many braincells have been valiantly sacrificed in the watching of this anime
