Characters & Voice Actors
Ever have a romance anime end right when the lovers finally confess their love after a long agonizing courting period? Ever wish to see how the lovers spend time together after their declaration of love? That is the purpose of this uneventful anime, pure slice of life anime. It still manages to make every episode enjoyable...kinda. The ending of the last episode is incredibly open, true to the nature of the series. Truly, this anime is nothing but a slice of life - a view into the everyday lives of the characters, with no unusual problems.
Although this is a sequel, expect the pacing to be even slower than the first Ai Yori Aoshi. In fact, even less happens here than the first time, so even though you've seen the first installment of Ai Yori Aoshi I'd say this sequel probably won't add much to it. It's not bad, but definitely not as good as the original series. Not much happens other than the introduction of two new characters not seen in the original. Expect an almost complete lack of plot. This is a mellow series - even mellower than most slice-of-life - so obviously avoid if you're looking for action, intensity, and other stuff you won't find in any slice-of-life anyway.
Characters are as likable as they were the first time around, so you'll like them again this time around the same way.
Major points off however, since there's a lack of resolution at the end, which seemed to be something the series was hinting at the entire time at the very least. read more
Oh em gee. I didn't think it was possible! A sequel that is BETTER than the original series! Well I guess there's a first for everything.
The story picks up 2 years after the ending of Ai Yori Aoshi. Kaoru, Aoi, Tina, Taeko, Miyabi, and Chika still live together and Mayu is still the daily guest. Everybody's a little older but pretty much the same. There really is no time in this sequel for the story to drag as the series itself is so short, so the story moves along at a nice pace. Every character gets a "love-episode" with Kaoru, and each episode was very enjoyable to watch.
Beautiful! Beautiful colors, beautiful animation. Just outstanding. There isn't as much ecchi in this season, but there still is some, but not as over-done and badly portraid as in the original. The eyecatches (the things that split the episode at where the commercial goes) run long though.
The opening theme, "Takaramono" is just lovely. If you liked "Towa no Hana" then you will like this. "Towa no Hana" is played once during the course of the series though ;) The ending theme, "I Do!" isn't as enjoyable. The special ending theme, "Presence", is also decent but not my favorite. The original soundtrack is pretty much used with a few new tracks.
Every character is developed further, particularly the character of Tina Foster. There's really no new characters except for Chika's friends.
Completely enjoyed. Enjoyed it a heck of a lot more than I enjoyed the first season.
If you have seen the first season, then don't hesitate for a moment to watch this. It is better than the original, and the story is moving. Just know that you might wanna buy a tissue box =]] read more
Similar in that a marraige / husband + wife theme is established early in the plot and the events of the story revolve heavily around it.
Seto no Hanayome is a lot wackier and is rooted deeper within the genre of comedy as opposed to Ai yori Aoshi's heavier roots in the slice-of-life genre but they still share a lot of similarities -- the characters and some of their concerns being some of those things.
A number of characters in both stories also have a lot of their personality shaped by the families that they come from. In Seto no Hanayome, it's San and her Yakuza background, and in Ai yori Aoshi, it's the two leads and their families.
