I don't know if I have any other score but 8 to judge everything in this anime. It's a good anime, but not outstanding either.

It's a continuation of Hamatora and it picked up things right away after that disturbing ending in season 1. Less comedies and humorous cases, more main plot. Now Art - our friendly, sweet police officer becomes antagonist and ready to kill Nice - our main protagonist anytime. It sounds so cliche, but also entertaining and evokes our curiosity. Although, sometimes I can't help but laugh at Art's action, wanting to kill but running away when he definitely has chance to read more

[EDIT AS OF 9/23/14: So it finished. I liked the last episode. The final 3 episodes that aired after I reviewed were pretty decent compared to the rest of the show. That being said, they don't make up for a lot of what happened before them. The score is now 4/10.

[EDIT AS OF 9/15/14: So episode 11 just happened. Episode 11 (and 9) are great examples of how good the series COULD be. Why all episodes aren't the qualities of these two, I couldn't tell you. But if Re:_ Hamatora concludes with the same strength as episode 11, read more

The sequel of Hamatora The Animation completely exceed my expectation, the series is truly different from its prequel and different in terms of good.

One of the massive different that created in Re:␣Hamatora is the story orientation, Re:␣Hamatora have clearer story orientation than its prequel. The main plot of the story is visible, the story evolves nicely and keeps focusing to the main plot itself. It maybe not the best that exist, but the plot manage to balance the story. One more thing that we should notice that the sequel appeals more to the mystery instead the comedy. So the main attraction has changed to read more

The first season ended with a huge cliff hanger, now this seasons completes the previous story. And it was a good, unlike the previous season where the main characters are just doing random job requests, in this season you can relate more to the characters themselves as we get to see their backgrounds and know more about their past and who they really are, also you can finally notice a little bit of a romantic feeling between Nice and Hajime which I am eternally grateful!

Now for the story, the great thing is the events became more polished and the story began to sidestep randomness read more

Anime: K: Return of Kings
the k series and the hamatora series both revolve around one central theme/concept: power and authority, and whether power should be equally distributed among the masses or only a selective few to prevent corruption and chaos. there’s no distinctive hero or villain (good vs evil seems rather subjective and up to interpretation) because opposing parties raise valid and interesting arguments. the first season for both series are a bit slow and contains quite a bit of filler, but they’re build-ups for the sequel. the plot may not be the best due to the plot holes and somewhat confusing storyline, however it’s still very interesting and  read more

Anime: Blood Lad
I was surprised that I enjoyed a vampire anime so much. I was nervous when I saw Staz's initial reaction to human Fuyumi, but after his stalkery interest in her went away, I warmed up to the anime. I originally tried it out because someone commented that the same voice of Nice in Hamatora is Staz Charlie Blood in Blood Lad. The characters are the most interesting part of this story. Definitely make sure to watch the OVA as well because this anime gears up in episode 10 and then drops you cold. -KH

Anime: Tokyo ESP
The show is similar to Tokyo ESP:
- Contains a group of people who contain a certain power ("minimums" in Hamatora and "ESP (Extrasensory Perception)" in Tokyo ESP.
- The people who contain the power are discriminated against leading them to hide among the ordinary.
- A group of the "special" people come together.

The way that they vary:
- One consists of a "savior" trying to bring equality to all people. (Hamatora)
- The other is overthrowing the humans and making them accept that they're weaker than them. (Tokyo ESP)

Anime: Bleach
You might think why these two are similar given their length in episodes but i felt the same elements when watching both:

- Almost every important character has a special ability
- Some of Bleach arcs had the same dark elements to Hamatora as a whole
- Humor is the same with goofy characters interacting
- Main character grows and is smart at times
- Likeable side characters

If you watch a few arcs of Bleach, it just feels comparable
