Heyo, Day 2 of the Illya review marathon. This time its 2wei.
Manga origin again, this season is a Part 1 adaptation of the 2wei manga. Same old 10ep with 1 OVA format.
Storyline moves on from where S1 ended. But this time, the story picks up immediately. The story does get pretty intense and a lot more yuri at the same time. The pacing does pick up quite a bit. Comedy gets slightly more intense. Character development also deepens this season, as many new and key characters comes into play. Fanservice is more overwhelming than the first season as the yuri elements are very obvious now. Climax was pretty intense too, this season does manages to exceed my expectations compared to the first season. Overall, another well done season, even though they are down to 2 directors this time.
OVA more fanservice as usual. But feels pretty pleasant.
Animations by Silver Link, again. They maintained the same standards as before, no complains, well done. Character designs maintained but the expressions are more emotional this season. Illya is drawn very cutely for quite a lot for this season. This made me love the show more.
Music is probably the best out of all the seasons. The OP and ED were the best out of all the seasons so far. BGMs still the same.
Cast list is still the same, but with more characters. Koshimizu Ami, Nabatame Hitomi. The 2 veterans did not make much appearance but it’s great to see they maintained the portfolio from Carnival Phantasm too.
Highly recommended to continue if you watch the first season.
2wei Herz! tomorrow.
