Characters & Voice Actors
Well I watched To Heart 2 in just one day and overall I would give it a 6/10.
There really isn't a base story, but all of the episodes are linked together in some way, even if the detail is very minor on how things are linked.
This series isn't really about the romance or the drama, it's more about a high school guy getting picked on and being admired by lots of chicks.
2 of the girls who liked him were always mean, while 2 others were shy, one was open with her feelings and another was like an older sister rather than a potential girlfriend. One of the characters (Tama) will call Takaki: Taka-bou which roughly translates to Number One.
Each character feels unique within the anime, but not unique in a sense of all animes ever made.
The Romance to me felt really tacked on like it was just thrown in there with very little purpose, especially with the ending being very forgettable.
The music was actually pretty decent in certain areas, however, there wasn’t much to listen to and definitely nothing worth mentioning.
But don’t get me wrong, the series was definitely a slice of life and some parts were pretty hilarious, however, I started watching the series expecting romance and we didn’t get to that until half way through the series.
The first-half of the series is pretty random, but they show how the episodes are related in certain ways, however minor the relations may be. Some lines are said in one episode and will be shown in a future episode on why that one character said that line.
The second half of the series was were the romance started. It started between a set of twins and then grew between all of the female characters in the series, but nothing special really happens. It’s as if, this was made for little kids rather than teenagers. The romance was very light and nothing worth mentioning. Towards the end of the series all the characters get invited to a tea house, but the characters have to explain why they like/love Takaki (the main male protagonist) in order to be invited.
The main drama of the series was with the twins (Sango-chan, Ruri-chan and Takaki). Ruri-chan was jealous about Sango-chan being in love with someone else. So Ruri-chan writes on all the black-boards at school that Takaki is a pervert and then even goes as far as to poison his food. But none-the-less she continues to hate him and scream her head off at him like a baby.
The last drama of the series is between Takaki and his childhood friend Konomi. Konomi realizes that she is in love with Takaki, but he does not feel the same way about her. She runs off crying and hides from him with no real purpose and then suddenly the series ends.
I don’t know about you, but to me that is kind of lame. I sat through 14 episodes (13 main episodes and a summary special) to have nothing really happen. To me it was just like watching an educational channel on TV, where nothing really happens and/or pertains to life today.
But I give this series a 6/10.
The art was pretty good, the music isn’t really worth mentioning, the story is kind of lame, but the characters are pretty well thought out.
With such an abrupt meaningless ending, I feel kind of cheated on the time I spent watching this anime. read more
One can ask oneself the simple word; why?
Why did I watch this? Why did I decide on writing a review when it is clear it is at the bottom of the ladder that all anime triy to climb. I can honestly say I don't know. Maybe it's because I watched the original To Heart which was bad and I wanted to relive sitting through incredibly agonizing episodes filled with generic story, characters and screenplay. Most likely I watched it because I've been watching some good anime lately and I decided it's time for some balance.
I don't really know if I actually want to write a review, per say, about this anime. You see, it is really bad, but then again so are almost all of the anime this anime try to look like. In truth Harem is probably the worst genre of anime, well maybe after ecchi. Never quite understood ecchi, either make a hentai or make real anime don't try to hybrid.
To Heart 2 is one of the most generic anime you can find. It is thrown into the same bunch of quality productions such as; To Heart, To Heart remember my memories, Kono Aozora ni yakusoku wo, Amaenaide yo!, Amaenaide yo!! Katsu!! and more recent ones such as; Asu no Yoichi and Tayutama -Kiss on my Deity- and many, many, many more. Why do they make all of these generic fanboy animes one can ask oneself? The answer is simple! For the fanboys.
There is always a demand for these kinds of anime, even the fanboys know that this is just like the 30 almost axactly similar animes they've seen before, but since the art is slightly different, the characters are slightly different, the guy attends highschool instead of middle school or his name is Ken-chan instead of Hiroyuki-chan it becomes worth watching. Sometimes it isn't a robot girl either, sometimes it's an alien, or maybe even a mermaid!
To Heart 2 is, as all of the aforementioned titles aswell as many I've not mentioned here, one of the most predictable animes ever produced, but if it wasn't predictable then maybe something original could happen and we wouldn't want that! Oh no we wouldn't would we Ken-chan?
Ken-chan: No we wouldn't!
Have you ever noticed that even in fairly good shounen romance animes the guy is always clueless when it comes to himself and his feelings? "Girl hugs guy, crying, but is too shy to say anything" - "Guy thinks to himself; why is she doing this, could this mean?.... no don't be stupid she probably just fell and got something in her eye and..."
I mean really? Who comes up with this shi... oh wait.
In conclusion if you haven't seen To Heart 2 but you've seen all of the ones I mentioned and many other harems and alternately shounen romance comedy/drama where the guy only has two girls who are madly inlove with him then you will not be disappointed by this!
FEEDBACK MUCH APPRECIATED ONLY NOT REALLY SINCE I AM RIGHT AND IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME YOU ARE WRONG. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO APOLOGIZE BEFOREHAND FOR ANY SPELLING ERRORS I*M JUST TOO LAZY TO READ ALL OF THE CRAP I JUST WROTE. THANKS. read more
Both have comedy, drama, school and harem genres.
Both involves the muchachos (male leads) having to deal with the different personalities of each members of his harem.
Both members of the harem has feelings for the muchachos.
Both muchachos also have someone in his harem which he would not wanna mess with.
Both muchahos are kind hearten gringos.
both muchachos has a dude whom he's friends with.
And, both muchachos always gets into awkward situations involving their harem.
In HKH, the muchacho there had a first kiss with the first chica he meets (accidentally of course), while in TH2, the muchacho has not had any kiss with any members of his harem.
In HKH, the muchacho has moved from the city into the country side co'z of his sickly nino hermano, while the muchacho in TH2 remains in the city.
The muchacho in HKH lives with his father's known associated (together with his brother) while in TH2 the muchacho completely lives alone, with a couple of androids in later episodes.
