Anyways, Pokemon Best Wishes 2 kicks off right after Ash gets his 8th gym badge in the Unova (Isshu) region. It's your standard Pokemon with Ash and friends helping out people until their problems are solved. They don't drop the formula and have a high standing in morality.
Best Wishes 2 is no exception to Pokemon's standard formula of emphasizing friendship and bonds. Expect a lot of speeches about such. The art is very repetitive, and you'll be seeing A LOT of repeat animations in different colored backgrounds.
The characters are very standard. Iris, the annoying maybe-OTP with Ash (lol BW episode 4) and Dent the wordy cook of the group.
All in all Pokemon brings a nostalgic innocent point of view to those who grew up watching it. Instead of watching it for technical value, watch it in the hearts of a child growing up. It really helps me enjoy Pokemon for what it is and what it's meant for. read more

Despite the opening and ending, the anime IS NOT a harem anime. I should mention that.
The story itself feels a bit average, but it keeps me watching. There's no real plot for a while and it's more so living school life with well "unique" people. It's your average slice of /school/life, but with a small twist towards the middle-end of the series.
The art is similar to that of K-On (same animation studio). I like their character designs and they're portrayed simply by one word: cute. If cute isn't your preference, you might not like the characters, but don't let that from stopping you from watching this anime.
The voice acting is adorable while the background music fits in most scenes. There's a repeat in a lot of BGMs, so you'll be hearing a lot of the same music (but isn't that with all animes?).
Overall, I heavily enjoy this anime simply because I could relate my life to the character's life. It brings back a nostalgic time from my middle school life so it was very reviving to watch. It's a great anime for those into slices of school life and such. read more
