Synopsis

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.

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

I'm just going to start off with saying that you HAVE to watch the first season. And all of the second season. Almost everything gets explained by the end, but til then you will be completely lost and wish that someone would just sit the MC (and us) down and take 10 min. to explain stuff to him.

Story
I give this show massive props for having the story it wants to tell and using almost the entire 2 seasons to tell it. Far far less filler episodes than most series, and a VERY twisty plot that keeps throwing new ideas and curveballs at 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.

NOTICE: This review covers both seasons of this title. Heck, why are there 2 seasons to begin with? They are the same story and the first one didn’t even have a semi-closure.

Indirect spoilers contained. Do not blame the reviewer if you read them.

ART SECTION: 6/10
Analysis: General Artwork 1/2, Character Figures 1/2, Backgrounds 2/2, Animation 1/2, Visual Effects 1/2

Is this really a 2009 work? It hardly looks as one. The characters are drawn very crudely, with their facial anatomy looking too sketchy and distorted half of the time. And the 3D mechas have really crude movements. But I must make it clear that the animators 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.
