An epic fantasy show filled with war, concerts, and games of fetch.
Much like the first season, Dog Days 2 stood out for its overwhelming cuteness. Unfortunately, like its predecessor, Dog Days 2 also stood out for being unbelievably pointless and insipid. Seriously, nothing happens in this show. Half of every episode is spent on exchanging pleasantries. This season didn’t even have the kind of fake conflict like the first season had— the final few episodes just consist of everyone being sad to go home for summer vacation.
What Dog Days needs is a conflict. Ideally, this conflict should center around Eclair trapped in a love triangle between Riko and Shinku, but I’m flexible. Dog Days needs a zap to rise above its formula, which consists of a bunch of people with tails being insufferably nice to each other.

- Characters – B – Great characters, but stop being so nice to each other!
- Attention Grab – F – I woke up from my nap whenever Eclair showed up.
