Characters & Voice Actors
Granted, this show is not complete at the time of writing so I'm not ruling out a miraculous ascendence of ratings, should it be that the show finally decides to stop playing in its own piss and get somewhere.
Let's get right to it:
Story - 2/10
Story? What story? This is infinite harem (2) we're talking about here - we have the typical group of girls as clueless and stupid as ever chasing an even more clueless and stupid male lead. Believe me, I gave it some merit points since it IS a harem show after all (and thus, more tolerance for lack of story) but really - the story is so unbelievably weak and bad it just leaves you feeling bad. And feeling bad is the opposite of feeling good. Which is usually what happens when you watch harem.
tl;dr: story sucks dick, any moving plot from cliffhangers shut down by random tit encounters.
Art - 7/10
To be completely fair the art is good, and the strong point of this show. You can tell a lot of production value has gone in. This you can easily judge for yourself if you are thinking of picking up this anime - so I'll leave it at that.
Sound - 5/10
The opening and ending songs are not memorable and uninspiring. I'm not saying it's entirely bad or poorly produced - it just doesn't have the extra connection that some opening/ending songs do that really push the anime to new heights. Five points may be a bit harsh, but any weak openings are skipped through by me, so it's almost like it isn't there at all.
Character - 2/10
CHARACTERS OH GAWD. I gave Infinite Stratos (the first) a 6/10 purely because although the ending was weak, it had a basic storyline, good art and a mediocre (but existing) character development.
I shit you not ladies and gentlemen, I can describe the personality of all the girls in IS2 with a single word:
I don't even know... the whole lot of them are just downright annoying. What sense of individual personality they may have kept before joining on the harem train in the first series has been completely shattered. This is NOT what a harem should be like, for gods sake.
It pains me to see some extremely talented voice actors which have served in some of my favourite anime to voice such abonimable characters. Voices such as Kana Hanazawa (Charlotte Dunois) who played roles such as Kanade in Angel Beats! and Marina Inoue (Laura Bodewig) with Armin in Shingeki no Kyojin... it pains me to say the least. It's so bad I can't even look at future characters voiced by the same actors in the same way - when I heard Kana was casted for the upcoming anime Nisekoi, all I could think about is Charlotte asking if Ichika could touch her boob, repeated 9001 times in every episode, with every girl.
Usually harems fall short on many aspects, but enjoyment should be highly commendable. I found myself falling asleep at many of IS2's antics. Just not a good show at all.
Could probably be mildly interesting if you have a fetish for girls who have an IQ below 60, though.
It's just not good at all. IS2 shatters what little IS1 had and then adds some more useless crap. And it's not even useless crap that you can sit back and have a chuckle over how bad it is either, just that type where you long for the plot and look away awkwardly at the horrible fanservice - leaving this show completely void of meaning. The most disappointing thing of all is the very existence of this show - a sequel, a rare thing to occur in prized anime series, is absolutely butchered. I wanted to like this show, but alas a very sad 3/10 for me. read more
If you are trying to look for a show with a interesting plot with mechs, indebted character development, and some great humor that will make you laugh so much until you cry then please ignore this show. Now if you are looking for a romance with no progress in it, your generic harem with it’s generic characters, and a plot that appears once then gets thrown out the window the first chance it gets then this is for you. Only thing that I find that is good in this show is the animation. If it turns itself around before it ends working on the plot still including all the other genres.
-They both have dense male lead characters.
-They both have girls that don't even know how to confess there feelings towards this male lead characters.
-Both are stupid harems
-Most characters are wasted from explicit amount of fanservice
-Both male characters need a lot of help from female lead characters
-Both school related setting
-Has armor suit things...
Rosario to Vampire:
Both animes can be defined as: A lot of hot girls very savvy that live (or want to live) with the male protagonist and none can actually confess to him. * Both had harem
