First of all, as implied by the ending of the first season, FnK is a direct continuation of the story. Several new characters are introduced almost immediately, and, while I don't have anything against them, I'd like to point out that they (Agnes, particularly) take up quite an amount of screen time with their own subplots, leaving less for the overall story. However, that isn't dragged out for too long, keeping overall length of a show in mind. What comes as a good refreshment is some noticeable advance in Saito and Louise's relationship, during which several important questions are raised and decisions made. I won't elaborate to avoid spoiling.
Animation is done on a fairly high level, although it's not anything outstanding: characters are still undetailed and talk out one side of their face when shown in side view; many scenes lack smoothness — just like previously, all in all. Some scenes, particularly those of burning villages, are pretty nicely done. HD in this case is barely worth it, but on the other hand, lack of detail helps keeping the file size low (useless info for keepers).
Sound work doesn't differ from the first season at all, most themes are the same. They are fine, but still nothing really outstanding, memorable, or really touching. New opening and ending are somewhat enjoyable, definitely more so than those of the first season, IMO.
Characters… First of all, the previously known Academy residents (Kirche, Tabitha, Guiche, etc.) have much less screen time. Not sure if it's good or not; I'd certainly like to see them some more. New characters are more-or-less fine, although I can't help but think that some of them are of untraditional sexual orientation or otherwise odd. Siesta is still there, being apparently dumber than previously. Yes, everything for the sake of fan service. *sigh*
On the matter of fan service: what is particularly annoying about FnK is that the it has increased in quantity, but definitely not in quality. Saito's obsession over boobs might be funny, but it seems as if the screenplay writers put him in ecchi situations purposefully, without much concern for whether it makes sense in the story or not. You might even not notice it until the last episode, but there it will come screaming in your face regardless. Then again, the ending is rather ridiculous, anyway; seems like we'll have another bunch of weirdo newcomers in season 3. :D
All in all, with the 2nd season ZnT keeps being a good addition to your collection as long as you like harem and/or fantasy comedies, with a questionable amount of hit-and-miss fan service. Some will laugh, some might even cry, overall I think the 2nd season is almost as enjoyable as the first, barring the certain cheesiness. However, it might leave something to be desired when it comes to the story progression, so I sincerely hope they won't drag it out for too long. Any further decrease in pace coupled with further increase in fan service can easily ruin the show. read more

While I'd recommend watching the first season first (for obvious reasons), I think that really, it wouldn't be too hard to just pick up from here and start watching. This is one of the main problems involving the story as I mentioned in the introduction.
I'm almost convinced that in the Zero no Tsukaima world this time around, having boobs or liking them makes you dumb, as the only sane person in the anime for the second season seems to be Louise.
Furthermore, Louise and Saito must be the most beautiful couple to ever grace their land, as every busty female character seems to go after Saito, and the handsome male characters after Louise. For every episode, be prepared to find Saito coming into contact with the cleavage of at least one female member of the cast.
The story doesn't actually get serious until the last two episodes, where it feels as though these last few ones could pass off as a continuation of the first season. In fact, I'd say that this is really the only saving grace for the story, and although the ending invokes an awfully convenient deus ex machina to wrap things up, the last episode as a whole was pretty moving and even made me a bit teary-eyed.
The second season more or less has transformed the series into a pure harem anime relying on fan service and fan of the first season to keep viewers, and for this genre, it does well. However, I feel that since that the first season didn't quite have this degree of females throwing their naked selves at Saito, that it didn't really fit in terms of the story.
At times, it is as though the story contorts itself in ways just to have Saito in a situation with a girl such that if he was walked in upon, it would look really bad, and of course, who but Louise should always walk in on these times. At least during the episodes, the story does progress some, saving it from becoming merely a mindless harem/ecchi anime. It is unfortunate that the story is somewhat weak and ending lacks any real conclusion, but it is good (I hope) that a third season is in the works. I should mention that at least the humor in the series isn't too bad, and also, like the first time around, the story is really predictable, but still fun to watch regardless.
This series contains some of my favorite character designs of any anime, especially Louise, who is just adorable; the female designs cater perfectly to those watching for fan service, and the male characters are handsome, as well. Some rather impressive effects and animations are pulled off during the series, especially regarding spells (with the exception of Void Magic). The coloring of the characters is rather pleasant to look at, and the rosy cheeks of many of the embarrassed females (particularly Louise) give off an adorable effect. Overall, I can't say the art is among the most picturesque I've seen, but it certainly doesn't fail to impress.
I personally liked the very beginning part of the opening song, but after that, it just turns into your standard j-pop number, not particularly bad, but it doesn't really stand out either. Also, it maintain what they did in the first season in adding sound effects to the OP for the last episode.
I'm sure that many people will find the ED to be ridiculously annoying, but I have to say that I thought it was adorable and very fitting (of course, since the OP and ED were made for the series, but that aside). It is basically the perfect embodiment of what the first ten episodes will be like.
Besides the OP and ED, the music wasn't too bad overall, and fit in pretty well with the respective scenes they were in. Additionally, the voice acting definitely wasn't too shabby, either, with an experienced cast voicing many of the characters.
This is perhaps one of the biggest drawbacks of the second season. It feels as though nearly all of the female cast hit their heads on something hard and now have an unquenchable desire to make Saito the object of their affection.
Perhaps some of the new transitions are understandable, such as Siesta's newfound boldness, as it was seen briefly surfacing in the last season, yet instances like Episode 6 involving Henrietta are just plain ridiculous and seem forced. It is fortunate that Louise maintains her character, however, Saito seems to have changed from the average (slightly more than average in terms of bravery though) teenager whisked from his home to a standard anime pervert who drools at every sight of cleavage he gets despite the fact that he is (somewhat unofficially) together with Louise. Thankfully, he manages to regain his old self in the last few episodes but it's rather distracting having this "new" Saito prancing around. It seems as though the characters have actually regressed, rather than grown and developed like they should.
The budding relationship between Louise and Saito is sweet and fun to watch, although it's greatly stunted by the rough humor that is placed into nearly every episode, and doesn't really make any real leaps or bounds until the last few episodes, although there are a few scenes earlier on that are rather...risque, almost.
It's nice that they added new characters, but most aren't properly developed, and furthermore, that means less of the characters that you've already come to know from the first season. They gave back stories to many of the characters, such as Tabitha, and it's a shame that they didn't build on them more. The one exception would be the story surrounding Colbert-sensei, but I won't go into details as to avoid spoilers.
In summary, it's all your favorite characters from the first time around (plus a few new ones), just a bit more comical and perhaps perverted than before.
More or less, I found that my enjoyment of this anime was hindered by the excessive fan service and it's new extreme harem feel it had that contrasted with the first season. If I had watched Futatsuki no Kishi for it being a harem, I'm sure I would have loved it, however, I was hoping for more of the goodness that comprised of the first season, and was rather letdown.
By the end, I'd have to say that the only reason I kept watching was for Louise, and in hopes that the third season will be better. If you've viewed the first season and liked it, then you should definitely check out the second season; if you haven't seen the first season yet, then I'd recommend it to you.
The second season doesn't quite live up to it predecessor, but it's not too bad in whole. Just don't get your hopes too high up. Also, as a harem, it succeeds with flying colors.

As a whole, Zero no Tsukaima’s first season seems better than the second season. If I didn’t like the first season, then that would mean that I probably wouldn’t like the second season, right? Then how come I like the second season more than the first? Read on and I’ll tell you why.
The story obviously needed work. I think the problem was that they tried to fit in many different storylines at a time. There was Saito and Louise’s relationship, the ongoing war with Albion and there was Anies’ story too. Each story would have been potentially better as stand alones, especially Anies’ story, but a combination of the three isn’t such a good idea. All three at once can be too much, maybe one or two at a time would’ve been better.
Furthermore, I’m really getting tired of the Louise and Saito’s love hate comedy act. It became so predictable – Saito does something that displeases Louise (usually looking at other girls), Louise brings out her whip, screams “You damned dog!” and beats Saito up. It’s been like that since the first season. The only improvement is that both are more aware of their status, that Louise is a noble while Saito is a plain commoner, which is why they’re still not official as a couple.
I’m a little disappointed that there was less screen time for the characters from the first season. I’m sure a lot of Zero no Tsukaima fans were disappointed to see less of Kirche, Tabitha and Guiche. A good side effect from that was more exposure for Henrietta - She was barely seen in the first season so I didn’t like her back then, but the second season showed a different side of her which made me like her more. I also like the new characters, Anies and Julio. Anies has such a cool personality and background, while Julio is such a hottie. He is so much better than Guiche.
Visually, it looks the same as the first season - same colors, same backgrounds. However, I do think the character design looks different. I think the character designs look more crisp, but at the same time, the drawing became more inconsistent. I’m especially glad that there was less fanservice, or rather, more tolerable fanservice in the second season.
Another aspect that didn’t change is the voice acting. I’m glad it didn’t change at all since a lot of my favorite and famous voice actors can be found in the cast list. Rie Kugimiya (Al in Fullmetal Alchemist, Shana in Shakugan no Shana) and Satoshi Hino (Yuuji in Shakugan no Shana, Kouichi in Kimikiss) are still Louise and Saito. There’s also Ayako Kawasumi (Ruriko in Gate Keepers, Ohno in Genshiken) as Henrietta, Yui Horie (Eri in School Rumble, Hanyuu in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai) as Siesta and Takahiro Sakurai (Shun in Gatekeepers, Cloud in Final Fantasy: Advent Children) as Guiche.
I also like the music. In fact, I think the music is better this time around. In the first season, the songs were too cutesy, but in the second season, the songs were more striking and had better quality. I really like “I say yes” by Ichiko, which is the OP. It’s so different from all the other Ichiko songs I’ve heard. I think it has more power and emotion to it, which makes it so special.
Despite of its many shortcomings, I still like it better than the first season. I thought it was more funny and entertaining, I like the new characters, and I’m especially glad that there was less fanservice this time around. However, the main reason why I like the second season more than the first is potential. I thought the second season had more potential than the first, and I want to see that potential in a third season. read more

well the advantages is that its a continuation of the anime - so you see the characters again, more action, romance etc. theres also more characters (which are more your confidence determined rock solid women), you find out secrets, and the princesses character is developed more.
i found the animation more crisp in the second series as well. the storyline at the end was more emotional and more action in the second season as well.
it did still continue the good humour, storyline and humour too.
however, there were many set backs.
firstly the humour was much more ecchi. (though that could be an advantage for some). some acts got a bit tiresome after a while (mainly the constant whipping of saito).
also i thought the characters changed slightly - particularly saito, who - in the first season - was your average kind, lovable character who's in love, changes to become quite perverted in the second season to the extent of annoyance, and start to question whether he really loves louise or not. on the other hand he becomes more serious at the end which makes up for it. another major change is siesta - the once gentle, kind, shy servant girl now becomes the determined rival to saito's love, which is quite annoying.
also, some characters in the 1st season - tabitha and kirche especially, are hardly mentioned. their character (as well as louise) is hardly developed compared to the first season.
personally the storyline was was worse than the first series - though that is expected as its hard to develop after youve had the good old girl meets boy and falls in love. the romance is still there, and does develop slightly, but is not focused on much (except towards the end), instead there are 2 other arcs, which seemed a bit too much to juggle in the one series. the overall storyline was quite predictable, apart from the end (which was pretty good and made up for the past).
the action was more guns and machines centred rather than magic, and rather than school-based, it is battle-based. (though that again, could be an advantage)
overall, the second series was pretty good, though it lacked ever-so-slightly slightly compared to the first season. read more

Art/Sound: Pretty much the same from the first season, but this time around it was very clear they spent more energy on the art than the story. As far as sound goes, it isn't memorable, but it is fitting for the right scenes.
Story/Character: I'll be brutally frank, there are about at most 4 episodes worth watching (possibly 3). A large part of the story this season revolves around a recently introduced character (Agnès Chevalier de Milan) who though is shown great detail, also portrays no growth whatsoever. *SPOILER: Expect character death because of her, and her not feeling guilty in the least, which most definatley led to me going "W...T...F?!" END SPOILER* If you are expecting a story about our main characters Saito and Louise, you'll surely be disappointed as I was while you watch them basically take a back seat.
On the topic of our main characters, I had expected some sort of change of character or growth from either Saito or Louise once the second season began. However, this is only evident in previoulsy stated 4 episodes worth watching.
Enjoyment: The only saving grace of this season is the final episode where Saito does something incredibly f***ing GAR (aka badass, awesome, etc.). That, and the promise of a new season. Those are the only two reasons to watch this.
Overall: If you decide to remain a dedicated fan (like me), watch it once, if for the story of the upcoming third season (and the final episode is pretty awesome). The art is at least pretty, and the humor (though occasionally dry and repetitive) should at least get a chuckle out of you. read more

Original Airdates: 7/07-9/07
Genres: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Ecchi, Romance, Supernatural
WARNING: Contains several HIGHLY sexually suggestive moments.... though no nudity.
This sequel is a continuation of the previous season, not long after the war. Louise and Saito seemingly getting along now since she knows that he had given up his only chance to return to Tokyo for her. The story continues as Louise begins to use Void Magic from a mysterious secret book she had recieved from her majesty Henrietta, while a new villain has appeared in town causing trouble.
(From Anime News Network)
This is another one of those "shift in quality at middle" animes. Though this time the shift was HUGE...
Okay so first thing first... the cons... and the biggest one of them all...
THEY CHANGED THE EFFING CHARACTER PERSONALITIES!!!
I mean in the first season... Saito was the typical lovable loser... he rarely did anything to make us not like him... This season... it's all different.. he's a HUGE perv.
As for the other personality change, that would be Siesta... she goes from a good friend to the object of jealousy. Also other characters lose their spotlight, especially Tabitha.
The other con that i'll mention is the objectionable scenes. In the 4th episode there was moment towards teh end that could be described as "hentai with clothes on". Again this much ecchi elements weren't in the first season
And more of personal peeve... the relationship btw Louise and Saito doesn't seem to advance AT ALL!!!
Now for the pros
When the show got into the 2nd half of the season... it became REALLY good. It added drama elements and action. In fact episodes 7-9 had probably one of the best arcs i've ever scene. The finale was also quite good... quite epic and moving.
I'll still be watching the 3rd season... hopefully it'll be more like the 2nd half of this season...
1st half - 5/10
2nd half - 9/10
Same list as first season read more

Fluke it was not, all told. I'd still recommend the series to anyone whose tastes seem to run in the general direction of fantasy/harem romance/politics. But despite its strong latter episodes, Futatsuki no Kishi does suffer from a few weaknesses its predecessor managed to keep to a minimum or avoid entirely.
Plot: Again we join Louise and her hapless familiar Saito at the Tristain Academy, where their relationship has grown marginally stronger. I have no complaints with how the whole inevitable Saito/Louise pairing is portrayed at first; we're given the impression that things have moved forward for the two, despite Louise's fondness for brandishing that riding crop, and it's an impression we need to be given if we're going to believe in the two as a viable and vital couple. When relationships hit a standstill in the real world, of course, things tend to go sour very soon after.
That said, one of the weakest points of the plot is its handling of the central romance. Louise and Saito make progress with one another in fits and starts, alternating between trite slapstick and almost extreme affection. It's the slapstick that bothers me most, partly because there's so damn much of it, and partly because the plot occasionally has to contort itself in unlikely directions simply to land Saito in unfortunate positions of lechery. Too many episodes are devoted not to progressing the underlying series of political events in any significant way, but to progressing Saito toward a pair of breasts, and Louise toward Saito and said breasts at just the wrong moment. And when they do get along, there are one or two moments of startling physicality that may make it a little difficult to fully appreciate (understandable as these moments may be, Saito and Louise being healthy teenagers and all).
Don't get me wrong, though. Futatsuki no Kishi does have its truly sweet moments. The last episode really nails it, but as it's the last episode, I'll refrain from singing its praises too loudly here.
Due to Futatsuki's focus on the central romance's sporadic twists and turns, the political storyline suffers -- a real disappointment to me, as the two arcs seemed to work so well together in the first season. The first half in particular often interrupts the continuity with breasts, Saito's appreciation thereof, and Louise's resultant disapproval. The shift toward politics in the second half feels like an abrupt temperature change at first, seemingly for the production team as much as we viewers, as the general organization of episodes seven and eight came across as a bit shoddy to me. When the suddenness levels out, however, we get a solid final four episodes. If you were a fan of the politics in the first season, hang in there; it's ultimately worth it.
Characters: I have two major problems with the characterization in Futatsuki, the first being inexplicable personality shifts. The first season gave us a surprisingly strong cast, and I looked forward to said cast developing further from where they left off, but this isn't always the case. Saito, for example, seems at times to have been demoted into your average, everyday pervert. Siesta's resolve to wrest Saito's affections from Louise isn't surprising, considering her acts of momentary boldness in the previous season, but her willingness to throw herself at Saito is a bit disconcerting. These divergences don't seem to be indicative of the kind of change one thinks of when discussing character growth.
Secondly, I didn't appreciate the marginalization of some characters. New characters Agnes and Julio ultimately earn our interest, but season one set Kirche and Tabitha up for a bit of explication, and we hardly see them at all this time around. I feel bad for Tabitha's seiyuu, having to make the trip down to the studio to record a grand total of three or so lines. With Tabitha and Kirche out of the way, it goes without saying that Guiche and Montmorency don't get much screen time, either.
On the other hand, those recurring characters who are further fleshed did good things for me. I couldn't help being interested in Colbert's history and plight, and Delfringher, who has to be the cleverest talking sword in all anime-dom, is even more hilariously pithy than before. Even Henrietta shows her many good and bad sides this time around.
Setting: Tristain Academy hasn't much changed, and, had the majority of the show been set therein, the place may have gotten old. Fortunately, we're introduced to a variety of locales as things move along -- a surprising number, really, considering how much of the plot is fanservice-centric (Saito doesn't let circumstances keep him down, so to speak). Our heroes visit such settings as an underground vault, a snowy mountain, and Louise's ample home, traveling between Tristain and Albion, the flying faux-Britain.
We also gain insight into the general level of technology with the introduction of Tristain's musketeers. Despite this title, the guns employed in Futatsuki are decidedly similar to rifles, in terms of accuracy; it seems that magic coexists with a higher level of technology than was previously made clear. By implication, this tautens the dynamic between aristocrats and plebeians, as those not gifted with magic are proven to be perfectly formidable marksmen. Perhaps the aristocrats' control is not as total as it seems.
Art: Futatsuki brings back the same clean, simple, Shakugan no Shana-esque art style as the original, retaining its reputation as the pastel equivalent of Shana's darkness and fire. Interestingly, the animation itself alternates between very good and shoddy, particularly where fight scenes are concerned, but it balances out in most episodes to be more than acceptable. I'm happy that J.C. Staff decided to forgo the use of 3D computer graphics in rendering flight sequences; such graphics have their place, that place being Last Exile and not here.
Sound: Based on music alone, I would have rated Futatsuki below its predecessor in the sound department. Music throughout the series often comes across as generic action fare, and besides, the opening and ending themes didn't do as much for me this time. Maintaining the score at 7, however, are certain scenes in which the voice acting is absolutely dead-on. Futatsuki's all-star vocal cast definitely delivers.
Verdict: Personally, I prefer my shows to be solid from beginning to end, rather than loaded with meaning, progress, and spectacle in the final four episodes. Either way, Futatsuki no Kishi turned out to be worthwhile thanks to that final stretch, particularly for a viewer who enjoyed the first season as much as I did. It's ultimately worth your attention as a follow-up to Zero no Tsukaima and a segue into the forthcoming season three, but be warned that it has its shaky spots. read more

ZnT and ZnT2, for me, is generally a breather away from the harsher animes and just to have fun with (similar to how I treat Hayate no Gotoku!) but the 2nd season has improved greatly in terms of drama and, well.. deteriorated in some departments
This season is actually good but the respectable male lead, Hiraga Saito, has gone from manly guy to pervert, I mean seriously, this spoils a whole lot of everything. Whenever huge boobs show up, he MUST notice it. Hell I don't even remember being such a perverted guy when I was his age, I know he's a healthy boy but MUST HE NOTICE EVERY BREAST IN THE WHOLE WORLD? The second thing, Agnes, a new character, almost literally took half the season away from us with her arc, although it ended in a grand fashion that started a chain of other dramatic things.
Let's get on to the real thing:
Well, in this review, I am mostly going to compare this season with last season and maybe some other shows too but I won't be comparing it to the higher standards.
The story is pretty average, the first arc, a girl has village burned, wants revenge, yawn. Its ending was rather epic win though, I have to admit. Second arc is about the war, this arc is quite a bit more awesome because of everything there.
There is pretty much nothing wrong at all with the story. I brief you no more, no less for it is pretty much that. The whole thing with Agnes, although pretty interesting, is not totally that great compared to the 2nd half. Seriously, I was thinking of giving this season a 6/10 with that arc but the 2nd arc totally turned it around for me, it was like the impact player in a football match that won the match for the team and that half did it.
There was also another aspect I liked from the series. The fact that the character development of the main pairing didn't take a full 2 seasons (AHEM Shakugan no Shana) really pleased me. Or maybe that was the novel itself. Either way it's still a contributing factor but that keeps the score at average.
I have always loved Hiraga Saito for his manly acts and healthy teenager behaviours because well, we don't get a lot of that in Animes. He's unique, you can say. For example, you can see he's not that generic when you see someone like Yuuji from Shakugan no Shana (although he isn't totally generic, you get the point) or some other wussy from some other Animes (although Yuuji is actually not a wussy after he got used to life with Shana)
Aside from the last badass episode that made him King Badass alone in the series, he hasn't gone all too badass himself.
Hiraga Saito has been, as I've hinted, toned down to a perverted badass (but not those bad people types who raep women) who cannot live life without huge boobies dangling around his life in every corner. If you are Hiraga Saito, you will encounter breast hams at every corner of the street. If you are Hiraga Saito, you are Dr. Boobs - no, you are Mr. Boobs. If you are Hiraga Saito, you will be beaten/exploded to death by over-used slapstick stuff from Louise.
Alright Louise is definitely a tsundere. I might be biased because I kinda like tsunderes when they get really dere dere (e.g Taiga from Toradora!) but trouble is she's almost tsun 80% of the time. The 20% of dere-ness are nice moments but then 10% of the tsun will come out from the aftermath of the dere which results in over-used slapstick which is getting frustrating sometimes. There are people who love this and I say to you,"DAT WAS FUNNAY LOL but please, the internet is serious business. I know you're joking with me >_>"
During the most dramatic episode I've ever watched in the series (which I cried at, yea lol I'm a sissy and I'm a guy), after the sweet moment, for no reason at all, Hiraga Saito said something about huge boobs. What was the result? Does he ever EVER learn? Louise makes him explode and we see another slapstick that ruins the mood YET AGAIN. Brilliant directing [/sarcasm]. The slapstick immediately reverted me from butthurt sissy mode to normal, a bit pissed mode. It had such a huge effect but they totally ruined it by including another routine slapstick crap. How charming.
There are also some absurd changes. Siesta, from a good and like-able girl, has gone to a camera-whore, almost literally. She is not afraid to walk around in a bunny suit with cleavage in front of Saito because, oh, you know, it's for Saito and she's convinced slut = win.
The queen is still the same like-able queen. She hasn't changed much and all her actions in this season has not made me note of anything different at all. She's still the same queen in my opinion, the only time Henrietta went totally ballistics from her original character was in her ploy to draw out an enemy and that was actually justified so it wasn't too unexplainable to me (aside from, oh.. you'll see).
Then new characters Julio and Agnes. Julio, to me, is one of my favourite types of stereotyped characters. He's the cool-headed nice guy who knows everything. He knows what and what not to do and is knowledgeable in the arts of teasing too. In a sense, you can compare him to the cool guys from other romance Animes you know (e.g Ikuto from Shugo Chara, Nomiya from Honey & Clover) but he generally radiates more friendly aura than most of them.
Agnes however, is a different case. I didn't care much about her. Oh sure if she was more beautiful I'd pity her more but that still didn't justify the ridiculous amount of screentime her repetitive story got. I know it's impressive and all that your village got burned and shitloads of revenge is stuck in your mind but why take more than half a season? The arc's ending was awesome though, Agnes in my opinion is not really needed, she comes off as someone you don't even care about at the end of the day.
Then previously focused-on characters like Kirche and Tabitha are left out a lot more with the long arc although they were both regulars in the first season, that's a real pity given that Kirche was definitely a fine favourite of mine. It's also a pity imagining Tabitha's seiyuu going through all the trouble as going to the recording sessions and only to record approximately 3 lines an episode (and I'm being generous here).
The quality went more down-hill than it went up-hill for me, 7/10
Art & Music
The art is still very much the same, Shakugan no Shana-esque maybe, since the whole cast does seem Shana-like and even the animations too. The art is OK and deserves a pat on the back for fine consistency.
The music is also well done. I am planning to get the OST sometime later but honestly, I still find SnS and Toradora!'s OST to be better (I'm only using those 2 animes because they are both tsundere-themed and feature Rie Kugimiya as well). The music was well-suited for everything. From the silly and funny moments, to the overtly-over-over-over-over-used slapstick to the saddening dramatic moments, it blended well. Usually it takes good emotional music to make me cry with a scene and this Anime is probably the 2nd one in my book. Maybe that's because I watched the whole thing in one go and maybe because I don't really like watching fully romantic stuff (e.g La Corda Passo D'oro).
The voice acting was not bad. Kugimiya Rie has lived up again to her title of "Queen of Tsundere" as her voice brings in the adjectives pampered and childish into mind, just like how Louise acts. Although I didn't like Yuuji's voice in SnS (who has the same voice actor with Saito, if you haven't a clue) too much when he's hurt and doing stuff (you know, the cracks and the heaves and the hos and the breathing in breathing out when he's shouting and/or yelling) but Saito's voice is really well done. No fault there. Other voices didn't bother me either. Excellent ones in my opinion are Henrietta, Colbert, Kirche, Julio, Siesta and probably her cousin.
Direction & Enjoyment
Now here lies some problems:
I have no goddamn idea.
What the hell is up with the boobies.
I mean seriously. I see boobies everyday and I don't go around staring at them perversely every single day of my life. That is how Saito has degraded into, your everyday huge-boob-lover. I cannot get what the hell is the obsession with boobs that this guy has. I know he's a healthy kid, but please know more shame, what the hell are you doing staring boob after boob as if you're on a relentless task of seeing every big boob you will ever encounter in your life?
And what is the after-effect of this boobspotting sport you ask? Oh I don't know, ANOTHER ROUND OF OVER-USED SLAPSTICK MAYBE? This ruins the mood. Especially in some episodes when Louise went dere and they had a nice couple moment with each other, boobs are mentioned or something akin to that and boy oh boy, here comes the wonderful slapstick. Go to hell slapstick, it was kinda funny the first time but not the 300th time (for example, in season 1 episode 9 where she drank the love potion, there was slapstick at the end, I could live with that, it was reasonable, what is NOT reasonable is the f-ing ridiculous reasons she would beat him up for). Some people love this, I don't get it, the joke's on me huh?
The drama is also very good ever since the end of the first arc. It was especially in its prime at the grand finale (that was the one that made me cry). The other ending of the first arc was also really sad to me. The new-found dramatic points in this season, when compared to the first season's drama, is a great improvement.
The relationship though, is progressing at a good pace but in some cases almost totally ruined by, again, you must be bored of hearing this from me, the "I has a boobs trauma because I has a flat chest and Saito is a boob fetish LOL!" slapstick. Sigh, so low.
Almost every time, the direction turns to huge tits. I don't get what's so funny about huge tits being shoved around my screen the whole day. I know tits are great, tits are fun but STOP SHOWING ME TITS PLEASE BECAUSE I WANT ANIME, NOT TITS. If I were looking for tits I'd go to a bar or something. Hell even Shakugan no Shana never focuses that much on Yoshida's TITS, except for Shana-tan Returns because, well, it is a PARODY so they focused on her ridiculous boobs but in the normal episodes, her tits are not mentioned a million times. The first season had a number of tit-savoury mentions but those weren't that bad. The director must've looked at the storyboard and said,"Hey! WRITER! WE NEED MORE TITS DAMMIT! ANIMES AREN'T MADE WITHOUT TITS YOU KNOW! What the hell is anime without TITS GODDAMIT? Oh I know, stinker anime!" Go figure.
You director, must have a huge boob fetish to make the series become a boob-fanatic festival. You know you could just go to those sites and quench your thirst but don't put tit after tits up the screen and make even worse slapstick jokes.
Overall: 7.7/10 (not average)
If you've liked the 1st season and you like drama, the last half of the season will totally redeem everything you've watched in the first half but just watch the whole thing because it's not really itself without watching the whole thing.
I know lots of people are saying the 2nd season is far less superior than the 1st season but the last half of this was worth the score because I love teh drama :)
In any case, if you love the drama in season 1, want more Saito x Louise-ness, totally gay for boobs and over-used slapstick, you will definitely like (or maybe love) this season, depending on your preference because some people think the first half was too much crap for the other half to handle and blah blah blah so who knows, it's pretty much preference. I recommend you try it first. I only love the last half of season 2 more than season 1 in general because of all the built-up drama but the score suffers from the immediate boring old slapstick right after the effective drama. Meh -_-
On the other hand, if you hate every Tsundere character on the face of the Earth, hate season 1, hate drama, hate the love-hate relationships of the couple (Saito and Louise), totally despise slapstick and are traumatic of huge, surreal and impossible boobies and the booby-watchers, then you will hate this season 'till you cringe

The story really reminds me of fullmetal alchemist brotherhood. And in a lot of ways it is. To simplify, Zero no Tsukaima is like an opposite of fullmetal. Where fma had a lot of action and little romance, this has a similar story that is heavy on the romance and light on the actual action. And there's a purpose for this. Fma most likely had a budget 2 maybe 3 times as big as the producers here. Thus we don't get a masterpiece like fma but it's still a really well done anime.
But i do have some gripes with this show, especially with this season. It seems like most of the action at the end was really seriously cut off. The stuff you do see it pretty awesome, 1 v. 70,000, he kicks ass. But like i said before, the producers were probably like, "ok guys, this is really getting pricey, wrap it up!" but you know...in japanese.
Another small small gripe i have, is that i wish they would use the familiars a bit more like in a battle or something. The only ones we really see are the dragons...and the others are more of a plot device. And whatever happened to the fat kid with the owl...did he die?
Anyways, i think this is an anime definitely worth looking into if you're into romance with a good story. read more

ok long wall of text aside i know im going to get flamed for that but it had to be said
ok noooow the reveiw prepare yourself because im am about to write the most rage ispired reveiw ever seen on this earth BEHOLD!!!(ya im calling you out you know who you are)
I dont think the words exist that describe the beauty of Zero no Tsukaima the only word that comes close is sublime(look it up T_T ) its something beyond words neraly impossible to arrticulate
(for those of you who cant think deeply that description i just made probly bounced right off you thats a shame)
Story: The story for Zero no Tsukaima is up there with Clannad its simply something you cant describe with words it has to be seen and expereinced the only vauge idea i can suggest is that its beauty in every sense of the word.its extreamely well thought out, i dont think iv seen any anime quite like it before or since, the story is at first glance your classic fantasy story but it gose deeper than that you have to look beyond the picture to understand, despite what some may think its not generic nor cliche, the story is presented in a very natural way in that nothings rushed or done for the sake of keeping fans, they dont need to thats perhaps the best element one can acheive in story telling,some may argue that in season 3 its all SERVICE SERVICE SERVICE!!!1111one but its not i know its hard for you to understand but thats what we call comic relif keep in mind we had 2 seasons 26 episodes of seriousness so i think their allowed to tone it down a noch for oh noes 1 or 2 episodes but i disgress, the next point id like to raise giveing creedence to the quality of the story is that it is remincante(spelling i know its wrong but use your imgination) of classic fantasy stories which to be honest you dont see alot of it is indeed quite refreshing, but that in itself isnt what makes the story great its that what started as an small scale conflict turned into to something far greater something beyond concept, it really had me hooked i think it could be best described as a bullet train and you better hang on tight
Art: The art was excellent it had its own style and was very well done
Sound: like with clannad the sound WITH the events in the anime is what made it great a truely beautiful sound track, and the voice acting was all very well done
Characters: I was simply moved by the characters in this anime, the played on alot of archtypes but each character was unique, i think that the story and characters worked VERY well together it was natural it didnt feel forced, not to mention the serine beauty illumanateing off this bond(louise and saito) i cant articulate into words if there are even any in exsitance that could describe the brilianate tranquility of it like how light reflects off water
Enjoyment: I found my self able to watch this anime time and time agian its just that good, and if youv read the reveiw so far it gose without saying how enjoyable this series is you'll laugh you'll cry satasfaction with absolute ceritanty simply beautiful
Overall: Watching Zero no Tsukaima is a adventure within itself prepare to pluge into the infiante abyss of fantasy behold the serinty before you its something beyond comprehensible words, do enjoy
ok i know some of that was alittle over the top BUT! that is the only way i could do it justice if you didnt understand at all which i asume some might, the premise that wich defines its beauty is love. it may seem hard to see at first perhaps im makeing something simple into something complacited but by the end i think you might understand even if only alittle
if you read all of that gratz thats a feat read more

I ended up watching it after marathon watching TTGL and Code Geass for the first time, and then feeling really depressed at the end of both of them. I wanted something silly yet enjoyable and I figured I would give this a try.
At the beginning of season one I was like... lame. I can't stand Harry Potter (bear with me, I'm not saying its a Harry Potter knock off), so I was kind of put off by the whole magic school thing. But I stuck through it and ended up watching the whole first season in two sittings. After the first few episodes the characters start to develop a little more, as well as the story. By the end of season one I was watching it for the story more than the comedy.
But enough about season one. ZnT: FnK took what the original season did with the story and made it 10x more thrilling and enjoyable. They kept the silliness exactly where I wanted it the whole time.
I'm not ashamed to say this: by the end of FnK I was extremely emotionally invested in this shenanigan fest. Obviously I don't want to give anything away, but the end of this season had me on the edge of my seat, obviously not in a way Code Geass did, but in a less serious but just as enjoyable roller-coaster ride.
Anyways, I know nobody probably reads reviews for this season, because you'll only be watching it if you saw the first season and liked it, but in my opinion this one blasted the first out of the water.
Now I'm conflicted though... how am I supposed to enjoy season 3 knowing its the last one? read more

Surprisingly enough, Saito and Louise’s relationship hasn’t changed much. From the very first episode it seems that they’re back to square one and Louise quickly goes back to whipping Saito as if nothing ever happened between them. I didn’t appreciate the lack of progress very much and Saito doesn’t help much either: even though he confessed his love to Louise, he keeps staring at other girls’ boobs and keeps the perverted thoughts coming. There are some nice little touches here and there, and there are a lot more significant scenes that depict the intimacy between Saito and Louise.
There are also a couple of new characters introduced and some really add some edge to the overall feel of the series. First you’ve got Louise’s sisters Eléonore and Cattleya, who seem to start playing a significant role in the anime, but are later overlooked and neglected. Cattleya is of more of a gracious and good willed character than her other sisters and only resembles Louise due to her pink-coloured hair. Eléonore, on the other hand, is just as scornful and arrogant as her younger sister and she’s even got her own whip!
By far the best character introduced is Agnès, the captain of Henrietta’s musketeer force. She is portrayed as being a tough military leader and her skill in swordsmanship is quite impressive. Many will consider her as being a tomboy and she does have a small story arc going on for a couple of episodes. Her presence throughout the anime is indeed significant and she does give the audience a nice break from Saito and Louise’s tiring situation. Another new character would be Julio Chesaré, a transfer student from Romalia who starts showing affection for Louise, which in turn leads to an interesting and funny conflict between him and Saito. There’s an entire episode devoted to his development as a character, but he turns out to be of little importance after that.
The most negative thing about season two is Siesta’s character, which is completely butchered throughout the entire series. Many will recall her as the goodhearted love interest of Saito and a lot actually preferred her to Louise during the first season. There’s an obvious change this time around, though, and the character is completely butchered in season two. The kind and delightful girl suddenly turned into a lying and manipulative bitch that will do anything to sabotage Saito’s relationship with Louise and win Saito over. Not nice, not nice at all.
As mentioned before, the story doesn’t progress too well and there are a lot of things that lack balance and don’t make too much sense. It’s still entertaining, though, which is always a plus, especially when you’re talking about anime. There are also a lot more ecchi scenes during season two – there are never enough anyway! The final episode is much more powerful and climatic than the one in season one and there’s a lot more emotion involved this time. There really isn’t any reason to skip Zero no Tsukaima: Futatsuki no Kishi if you’ve seen season one and there’s enough entertainment to keep it from failing, even though it’s not as proficient in substance as the first season was. read more

First, the basics: if you've seen the first Zero no Tsukaima series (as you should, if you're watching Futatsuki no Kishi), you know what to expect for both animation and sound. The animation is cute and pretty fluid without being too detailed - pretty easy on the eyes. I saw not a single difference from Season 1, and that's hardly a bad thing. Same goes for the sound, as many of the background tracks were pulled directly from the original. I don't aim to knock it for that, though - the tracks were very fitting, and gave many scenes some very welcome extra emotional weight. I highly enjoyed the new OP; it was nothing special, but fit the tone well, and was catchy without being overly saccharine. Superior to the original OP. On the other hand, the ED...oh, what were you thinking, J.C. Staff?! Don't get me wrong, I loved the Season 1 ED, in all it's mildly obnoxious glory. This one, at least to me, was beyond redemption, especially when it absolutely shattered the powerful mood created in some of the later episodes (a lá Clannad After Story). Voice acting continues to be great: I can do nothing but love Kugimiya Rei's tsundere growls. With that out of the way, onto the meat of this review:
Story and Characters. (8/10)
I absolutely adored the first Zero no Tsukaima series, and not in cynical sense, either. It was simple and predictable (even for someone like myself who finds himself surprised at the most simple of plots), but it had an undeniable charm to it that drew me in episode after episode. The one aspect that stuck out to me most was Saito himself - a male lead in a romantic comedy who really earns his admiration, and doesn't just awkwardly have it thrust upon him. He was a relentlessly fun character to watch and relate to as he struggled to find his place in the world entrenched in old customs that he's been thrown into.
So, Futatsuki no Kishi started on a rather bad note for me.
To be frank, Saito is a different person in this series. His personality seems almost fragmented, as if a wily and horribly perverted demon has invaded his mind, and takes control every so often. We still see glimpses of the boy that stood up to snobby aristocrats simply because you don't f-ck with Saito, but just as often, we have to painfully watch him drool over every remotely pretty girl he sees, implying that much of the relationship we saw develop with Louise has been lost in translation. Thankfully, this becomes less noticeable as the series progresses.
Disregarding Saito's ogling tendencies, the story here is pretty fantastic. It's still ZnT, so you'll be getting romantic comedy with some action thrown in for good measure - however, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of genuine emotion created in a great deal of the 12 episodes. Episode 9, in particular, is magnificent - I would go so far as to call a masterpiece within a work of lesser overall quality. If you have any doubts about this series, I recommend that you watch it for that very reason. I am equal parts ashamed and myself and proud of the series to be able to say that Zero no Tsukaima: Futatsuki no Kishi brought more than a few glorious, manly tears to my eyes. It's still a predictable tale, but much less so than the original, and it certainly goes to darker territory, and for that, I applaud the writers. However, Futatsuki no Kishi reminded me once again that it's very hard to do an ending right all the way through. The majority of the final episode is remarkably good, and definitely the high point of the series aside from the previously mentioned ep 9. At the same time, while I don't want to spoil anything, I will say that if deus ex machina isn't your thing, you will be disappointed.
The characters themselves are a mixed bag. You already know how I feel about Saito: he suffers when compared to the first series, but still has his share of great moments. Fellow students Kirche, Montmorency, Tabitha and Guiche have faded (even further?) into the background. Poor Tabitha, I think I could count on one hand how many words she said in the whole series...okay, maybe two hands. However, Princess Henrietta comes into her own as a character, as well as another familiar face from the original who turns out a surprising and stunningly powerful performance. New-comers Agnes and Julio both prove entertaining and endearing, especially the former, who impressed me quite a bit, after giving a poor first impression in early episodes.
Zero no Tsukaima: Futatsuki no Kishi is an incredibly imperfect series that could have been truly wonderful, given a few changes. Regardless, if you enjoyed the first series, you will find plenty to love here - the difference is that while the original maintained a consistent level of "pleasant and endearing", the sequel bounces between awesome and unfortunate. Indeed, the story has moments of true greatness, but the moral here is this, J.C. Staff: NEVER change the personality of a great character for the sole purpose of adding fan-service. It's doing more harm than good.
[Well, I hope that wasn't too painful, being a first review and all. Hopefully it was informative, and maybe even entertaining!] read more

Well you either love it or hate and so far I've liked it a lot it has outdone the first entry and with strong romance and comedy you have an outstanding anime and will always be one of the best. read more

" The story is another cliché that we've seen a lot and this time it really is bad. The main story has as many plot holes as you can imagine (without taking into consideration how bad it is itself). The visual quality is really bad taking into consideration that it's not that old of an anime.
The character development is almost non existent and for the ones that do develop it is really bad. A lot of characters make an appearance without the proper relations to the story and that makes it almost idiotic.
Except for one case, everyone is either good or evil so you know where it's going to end with anyone.
The music is really stupid and even though it goes with the "atmosphere" of the show it could have been a lot better (believe me, I'm being pretty generous).
Nevertheless, the reason I enjoyed his show despite all and every bad aspect is because of it sense of humor. Almost every episode had me laughing and thats the only reason I finished it.
So if you really don't mind those incredible bad aspects and you want to laugh a little then give it a chance." read more

The invasion of Tristain has been pushed back thanks to Louise and Saito and an ueasy calm settles over the land. Louise begins to practice Void Magic while Saito, having given up his chance to go home to Japan, tries to find ways to fill his time. But the wars are not over. The peaceful lull is but the calm before the storm, and soon Queen Henrietta must make a terrible choice between a temporary peace and a preemptive invasion of Albion. Either way, Tristain is soon to be embroiled in war once more, and “Zero” and her Familiar will be right in the middle of it.
The story is relatively new in some ways. New characters are introduced like pretty boy Julio Chesare, headstrong Agnes Chevalier de Milan, nasty Eleanor and precious Cattleya Valliere, and finally the seductive Sheffield. The continuation of the story is pretty new and brings a new sense of adventure in the series. I must admit though, Louise seems much more colorful and bright in personality compared to the last season with a black-and-white personality and obviously annoys some viewers at times.
But the lackluster it holds is the lack of character importance for previous ones like Kirche, Tabitha, Montmorency, and Guiche. Some of them are just completely forgotten, hardly even referred to at times. The whole series mostly focuses not only on Saito and Louise's feisty relationship, but more on Agnes' past and her ambitions to avenge her past along with the mysterious history behind Mr. Colbert himself.
Even if this was lacking in more story content, at least it made up for having some complexity in the plot, with some dramatic feelings in that one pivoting moment for Agnes to figure out what really happened in the past. This compensates that Zero no Tsukaima really isn't a two-dimensional show, it's got some good stuff in it. Even the pace to this anime is very smooth and flows perfectly along with the humor that includes Saito's naughty pleasure in cleavage and romantic comedy.
The animation and art were good and very consistent. Background music was not the most impressive but it was pretty decent. Voice acting was good as usual, so I have to give props to the studio for at least making sure it continues to look and sound good.
Honestly, season 2 starts off pretty much routine—and then I found it hard to sit through. First off, the relationship angle is fine between Saito and Louise—no problems, but the storyline seemed lack luster from the first. Maybe I expected too much. With the addition of newer characters—I had hope such like Julio and Louise’s Siblings. Fortunately—the last part was the only good part about it.The last scene was the critical moment in the season...not much to say but it's just a visualization of how beautiful Saito and Louise's love is.
I give Zero no Tsukaima: Futatsuki no Kishi a score of 9 because of how good it was to connect the series as a sequel. It left me a great feeling of satisfaction to once again to be worth my time to watch this. As I am a fan of romantic anime, this is probably one of my favorites to keep on to. Once again, this is yet not failed to disappoint me ever! read more

about the war between Albion and Tristain. But don't understand this wrong,
Its not ALL war. Because there is Comedy in this anime (LOTS OF IT) and it also
has its serious and intense moments. And some moments were you just think WTF!
this anime has it all! An amazing story, good art, and most importantly, well
something That I feel is important that a lot of animes lack,
Deaths of characters that you just love. Now dont get me
wrong, I'm not for characters dying, but it gets all too boring when
you can predict what happens in an anime. and this is not one of those animes.
which is exactly why I love it so much.
The Genres of this anime or season are; : Action, Adventure, Comedy, Ecchi,
Fantasy, Magic, Romance, School life and of course Harem!
Now that is a lot of genres. and usually I dislike having many genres in an anime
especially because it confuses me quite often, its understandable for animes
which have a lot of episodes like Naruto. But for a 12 episode anime to fit
this much in one season its really hard to do, or better yet, its hard
to make it work well. But despite all that this anime did a really good job.
Next im going to be talking about the soundtracks and the music,
Im not sure about all of you, But this is something for me that is really
important in any anime. If the music is not good and cant suit a certain
mood, I probably wont watch the anime, Unless the story has me blown away.
Music is what adds emotions to not only animes but also movies,
This anime did a very good job on soundtracks and how they used them
So in the field of Soundtracks and Music I give this anime a 9/10
The reason why I didn't give it a 10 is because my mind functions a little
different and I think other instruments could have been used. I will show
you guys an example of what I mean by that. So I will take a soundtrack
that is the same piece, but is played with a different tempo and different
instrument, Some of you might know this soundtrack.
Here is the First Sound track:
And Here is the Second:
So I hope you understood what I meant by that. Moving on.
Next is my perspective on art.
The artwork on this anime was all too good, It could have been better,
But in my opinion it could have ruined some parts in this anime, so staying
in between cartoon and a little more than mid realistic was a good choice
so Artwork gets a 10/10
Next I want to mention the characters. While watching this anime
I felt like there are a few characters that should not have been added.
or at least should have had a different attitude to what they have.
But progressing further into the anime, I did not feel this way any more,
mainly because I got used to it, and also because I started thinking that
this anime would be a little suckish if they were not there.
Characters get 9/10
Next will be the enjoyment:
I feel that this is an anime that anyone will enjoy, while watching this anime
I did not once look away to play with my rubix cube, or start kinda drawing
on my desk or the nearest piece of paper like I would usually do,
It was interesting and enjoyable throughout, there was never any boring
moments at all
So enjoyment also gets 10/10
Lastly I would like to mention the actual story,
There has not been a single anime that has less than 26 episodes in one season
which is this breath taking. This anime is absolutely amazing and I cant believe
that I hesitated to watch it for almost a whole year now. Absolutely incredible,
there is not a single word which can defy how amazing this
anime really is, Because it truly is amazing!
And overall rating for this anime is a 10/10 read more

Were to start? The best place would be the story.
The story is about the struggles of a boy Named Saito summoned into a rigid society were the lower classes are oppressed. Were he fights for his master "Louise" in a world with many wars whilst searching for a way to return back to his world whilst also being conflicted by his love for "Louise". Evil also plots the down fall of this world. Sounds cool, no?
Well alas that's not how it turned out its basically a harem set in a hogwartsin the middle of who knows where. There loads of deep plots the story could follow but alas it just turns into your typical harem set in a magical world. It doesn't take it's self seriously and I would be cool with that if it didn't want to take it seriously. Yes it's true a tear may be jerked but I can't help think about pedophilia ambitions of Saito. it's not original and when given chances to be individual and original it spits it back into your face and says ha I would prefer to be a harem fest.
But that's enough ranting for now. 5/10
The sounds solid I can say that much The op was better than last season because it didn't ruin the whole plot in about2 minutes of footage. The ED was also much better but the ost is lack lasted. So it all comes down to a mediocre score of 5/10
I'm kinda too lazy to do an eno osu rant on the characters but let me say this.
Saito is a mugal with special abilities but also has an intense obsession for brests and chaseing after woman. On an intresting point he tries to keep to a no class system, yet this idea is never explored.
Louise is your typical tsundere character that loves the main character. But she almost seems yandere with vicious attutide however she's rather lacklustre in the fact the her character develops but she just seems to goes in circles.
Siesta is a bitch in season one you could connect with her for being the poor plebeian that's working hard. However she just becomes a manipulative bitch in season 2 and that's due to her bing designed like that.
Am I missing anyone important nope the rest are reall character fillers or harem bait etc.
But as harem bait job accomplished 5/10
Watch it yourself to see if you enjoyed I did to some degree but it's for you to decide.
Overall should you watch?
I don't really care go ahead I'm just using this review to rant about how this anime just had too much and I mean way too much harem than needed.

They're relationship is closer than before, but there are a few bumps in there relationship.
