Characters & Voice Actors
Continuation of the story after Kaito escapes Orpheus and after POG gets disbanded. Their new enemy is the "Orpheus Order" who despise Kaito for destroying the armlet. The story just began so thats all I can say.
Its pretty simple and anyone should be able to grasp the plot. But at the same time interesting, unique and intense.
Art is amazing. The character design is also remarkable.
I thought the first season had fantastic OP & ED. And I still feel the same about it this season. I also think that the voice of the characters are very attractive.
I would definitely recommend anyone. If there is any flaw to this anime at all, then it is the lack of comedy, and the lack of ecchi for some people. xP read more
Let's play up, Ok so I've just finish this 25 episode season 2, so far as to how it fared up well.......I think we need to do a kind of puzzle before I go on.Ok so it might no be a puzzle, but then again it is no different than solving a puzzle co'z whether you answer a puzzle or a quiz they all have one thing in common- you use your brain, so let's see how good is your phi brain:
A. Choose the one that is different.
1. (a) Fumino Serizawa (b) Oda Nobuna (c) Eris (d) Lala Satalin Deviluke
2. (a) Rito Yuki (b)Yukinari Sasaki (c) Tatsumi Oga (d) Sanpeita Kobayashi
3. (a) Ali Project (b) MAKO (c) KOTOKO (d) StylipS
4. (a) Majong (b) Kurata (c) Go (d) Sudoku
5. Puzzle Time:
Fox Chicken Sack of Corn
Boatman (Which is you)
As a boatman it is your job to carry 1 item each across Riverbank 2, however you can't leave the Chicken with the Fox because the Fox will eat the chicken and you can't leave the Chicken with the sack of corn on co'z the chicken will eat it, so in what order will you transport each item across Riverbank 2 so that you don't leave the chicken with the fox or leave the sack of corn with the chicken?
Ok enough of that, so what we have here is more like a season 2 where the protagonist is up against a group of puzzle freaks only this time them puzzle freaks want to unlock mankind's hidden potential, but it still maintains that usual Kaito being challenge again and it also has that usual childhood flash back from Crossfield Academy where Kaito once studied. Unfortunately the plot is still the same as it looks more like a remake of some sorts that anything else, only the antagonist and the addition of the POG as Kaito's allies have change. But still there is that thing where you'll be wanting to see Kaito kick them Orpheus Order's ass. So for the story I'll give a "Fair" number 6, because one might wanna screw the story and just get on with solving the puzzle and make Kaito win.
Art: Poor 3.
This is because, I'm not getting the idea of as to why Kaito, Gammon, Ana and Cubic are not in their proper school uniform. I really don't like the way Kaito dresses up, co'z he kinda looks like a dorky gangbanger whose style fits those of geeky hippies who hasn't taken a bath for a long time. Gammon, looks like a typical biker gang who is into S and M, as for Ana, I'd wish the author has made him a girl than a cross dress fag who dresses like your typical grandmother and as for Cubic, he'll be better off just ditching the white robe for a Root Academy's school uniform. For Nonoha, I really like her better with her hair down.
Sound: Mediocre 5.
I just like the ending theme.
Characters, enjoyment and overall: Fair 6.
So far what keeps me from dropping this season 2 is the challenge in which one would empathize with the characters, unlike the 1st season where Kaito is all alone this time he has friends and acquires new allies. However I really hate it when Kaito who's seemly oblivious to Nonoha's feelings, it cannot be establish if he is protecting her or was he gay, co'z the thing about this anime is that it has this yaoi innuendo where the main villain seems to have that kind of desire of that of a woman who is obsess with a man, and in this case it is with Kaito. Then again I really do admire Nonoha, co'z she kinda serves as a mother figure to Kaito and it is nice that at the last episode of the anime Kaito wants her to be part of his puzzle solving quest. In the upcoming season 3, it is gonna be obvious that the Orpheus order would be part of Kaito and the gang's allies, so far thought this anime's overall should get a higher score, it simply doesn't deserve such high score co'z of the predictability and it woun't be a surprise if the upcoming season 3 will also used the same route as the 1st season only with some slight difference. But it was enjoyable enough to see as to how the big antagonist get's beaten by a bigger antagonist and I'm referring to the Freecell woopping Klondike's ass in which klondike's ass big time and seeing Melancholy acting like a kid being bullied thought I was kinda hoping that Kaito would have been the one to do that.
PUZZLE TIME IS OVER.
Both have an antagonist that takes advantage of peoples dark side and negative emotions and turn them against the protagonist, only Phi Brain uses puzzles, and Shugo Chara uses magical eggs
