Adventures in agricultural school, continued.
Unsurprisingly, it’s pretty similar to the first season. I rated this season slightly lower because things seemed to be moving more slowly. Or it may have just felt that way since I’m more used to these characters now.
But, as before, excellent characterizations. This season Hachiken gets closer to Mikage and tries to deal with his family. Still has a good sense of humor, but this season was a bit more serious than the previous one from what I recall. It deals with issues of growing up and with some financial difficulties the characters encounter, now that Hachiken has gotten over his simple horror over life at the agricultural school.
- Storytelling – C – Could stand to be more focused. Not really a clear theme, and the plot is mostly doing stuff at school.
- Voice – C – Stylistically, offers nothing special.
- Characters – B – Good characterizations, particularly for Hachiken and Mikage and how they deal with their classmates and families. Much of what makes a good character is how they interact with other people.
- Attention Grab – C – I usually pay attention, but never am waiting around for the next episode to come out.
- Production – B – Looks fine.
- Overall – C+
