Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu 2nd Season
After a mediocre but still entertaining first season, the anime managed to convince me reasonably positively with a decent sequel.
Of course, the Anime/Novel is not an award winner, but for an average series, it can be relatively proud of itself. The episodes still have very balanced pacing, the subject gets to the point quickly and there is hardly any tension lost.
Re Zero thrives on some subtle twists and revelations within the plot. The way from one main moment to another can seem a bit monotonous from time to time since you also know how often the protagonist has to fail.
Because you can already count on Subaru's failure, some tension is lost, as you practically only wait for his death. However, the variations in the timelines and the experiences he always gathers are an interesting addition to the overall picture. If it were always the same, you could hardly watch the anime. But precisely because of that, the suspense value is maintained well.
The second season feels much smaller in terms of story scope. The whole plot revolves only around events in the cursed village and mansion. Compared to season 1, the whole thing feels very small. However, so many things happen at the same time and each character plays his own role, which keeps the flow of events very stable. I'm especially glad that Emilia seems to finally be working on her personality and Subaru still hasn't gotten over his trauma.
In this season, the characters are once again well presented, and the best is brought out of them. At least what can be gotten out of 'em.
It still remains an isekai with all its negative aspects and the fact that the author once again wants to praise Otakus to the skies. However, despite its flaws, the anime has an entertainment value that cannot be denied. It is neither a bad nor a good anime. Which unfortunately splits the community, as no one can agree on a point. Nonetheless, I was able to enjoy this season relatively well and had significantly less of a headache than expected.
Whether it is recommendable, I can unfortunately dispute. It simply depends on how you handled the first season. If you didn't like the first season, you won't like the second either.
