Following the first season, Tomoharu is now faced with a dilemma: if he doesn't form a contract with an "akuma", he risks losing his dear friend Takatsuki. However, doing so would compromise his own existence as it would result in him and his ghost friend Misao becoming an Asura Cryin'—mankind's biggest threat, according to their school's presidents. To make the decision even harder, Tomoharu and Misao have recovered some of their past memories—memories of a world that they didn't even know existed.

I found the second season of Asura Cryin' to actually be better than the original season.

There's far less instances of character overlap than the first season had. I didn't find myself being as confused with "who" was on the screen at the time like I did with the first season. They went the extra step and provided deeper characterization than the first season.

They also concentrate on telling the story and seemed to have gotten rid of "filler" in the second season. The story line was more compelling and there was a sense of urgency to it. Unfortunately, at least to me, read more

ok this is my first review so go easy on me
well many many people said that the asura cryin series suck but i will explain why they say that: like 90% of the people who say that only saw the first season and have to warn u if u only watch the first season U WONT UNDERSTAND A THING OF THIS ANIME. this isnt a story that has a season and if its succesefull thay make a second one, no that not the case, this series was intended to have 2 seasons thats why u wont unsderstand anythinf just by watching the second season.

This review is about the first and the second season of Asura Cryin. You can read it even if you didn't see the show, there's no massive spoilers.

It was the first show I watch in my life (well, after bleach but I don't put Bleach, One piece and all these shows in the same bag as the little shows, like Asura Cryin).
It's one of my favourite.
I thought it was because it's the first show I watched, so there are kind of magic things, you know, the first time. So I marked it at ten, the first time I saw it. And then I watched read more

The whole story of Asura Cryin' is quite bizarre and maybe complicated but everything does make sense despite all its weirdness.

First of all, if you are reading this review (no spoiler) I assume that you've seen the first season; understood the relation between handlers, burial dolls and demons(akumas); and most of all that you’re interested in what happens next (the sooner you watch the sequel the better because of all the terminology you have to remember).

Following the first season Tomoharu now knows that the Asura Machina uses the soul energy of its burial doll; in his case the emotions and soul of his friend Misao. read more

Preventing the end of the world, and multiple worlds. Other similarities as well.

Both have multiple versions of the same person from different universes, and in general a lot of odd alternate universe science fiction.

Both have villains who are trying to find a perfect world where someone who died is alive.

Both are short on explanations of what is going on until you get near the end.

Mecha anime, mixture of humor, and a bit romance
Great characters, well design and a great story
Both anime aim is to rescue the whole world.
Both series are great, and you should take your time watching them both ;P
