Sasha is partnered with Hana as his new Maria. They infiltrate an all-girls academy, forcing Sasha to crossdress, in search of a Qwaser-related artifact called the Magdalena of Thunder which has appeared in one of the students. However, they have some competition in their search of it.
Yes, it is true. The first season of Seikon No Qwaser started out great and ended with a decent cliffhanger. However, the continuation of the series (Seikon No Qwaser II) follows Sasha and Hana as they search for the Magdalena of Thunder, supposedly inactive and hiding within a girl at the Roman Curia Surei Academy. Sounds interesting, right? In the first six episodes, Sasha is dressed as a woman in an all girls school where the technology to expand and focus your mind has been used as a way to bait girls of
various backgrounds to attend the Academy. Members of the Adepts start to show up to complicate matters and things begin to get heated as the presence of the Magdalena of Thunder is revealed to be inside the Academy, hidden deep beneath the flesh of a young woman. The idea is promising...
...Until the episodes following the sixth just begin to drag. Disappointing, really. This is where the show really began to nose dive into a downward spiral - and frankly, suicide!
Most of the episodes were fillers with no real intention to further the plot of the story. Every now and again, a character would slightly develop or would come to a sudden realization surrounded by a clusterfuck of fan-service. A COLOSSAL AMOUNT OF FAN-SERVICE.
You want cleavage? YOU'VE GOT IT!
You want boobies that jiggle for no reason? YOU'VE GOT IT!
You want breasts of every shape and size? YOU'VE GOT IT.
Unfortunately, the clusterfuck of fan-service actually killed the plot of the show. It felt as though in every episode, the mangaka left a pair of boobs lying around purely for the sake of his viewers to sit around and gawk at them. A little fan-service is good, yes, but it became more of a hassle to finish the series as the show very slowly progressed.
The last episode was engaging and yet, it felt somewhat rushed. Most of the action and deepening of the plot took place within the last 24 minutes of the series, leaving yet another cliffhanger at the end.
ART :: The art of the show was the same as the previous season's. A few times, the author had failed to correlate speech with lip movement in minor scenes or forgot to draw a movement to a sound, but nothing too serious. The detail of the characters and their wardrobe has improved since the last season, but the background is still rather average.
SOUND :: I highly enjoyed the opening and ending themes. Upbeat, funky, and melancholy, the song "Rasen, Arui wa Seinaru Yokubou" by Faylan was well done, but definitely does NOT compare to the first season’s “Baptize” OP. On the contrary, "Metaphor" by Shoujo Byou, the ending theme, is my favorite from the Seikon series by far. If anything, the ending OP adds to what the anime is trying to define as the atmosphere of the show.
CHARACTER :: Not much development, if very minimal. Aside from the goofy and unnecessary fan-service of the show, there were hardly any slots open for serious character interaction. What has developed between the main characters in the first series stays relatively stagnant throughout the production. New characters emerge from the foreground, but are eventually shouldered to the side after the recovery of the Magdalena of Thunder; this, despite the maturation of the characters. Only one character from Surei Academy appears throughout the remainder of the episodes, but her appearances are primarily reserved for Ekaterina.
Not much. I rated this a 6 [enjoyment & overall] because the story lacked any real meat, there was hardly any action or development of the plot, the characters were static, and almost everything was sugar-coated with filler episodes. Seikon No Qwaser II ended up becoming a giant boob-sucking travesty, rather than a form of entertainment.
To put it simply I was disappointed with this second series, it shouldn't have even been made.
In the first season there was your usual beginning, middle and end. There were interesting relationships between the characters and some character development. I thoroughly enjoyed it and if you did as well then don't bother with the second season. The second season started out with some semblance of a plot, a goal if you will. However this was all over by the fifth or sixth episode and to be honest it wasn't even very satisfying. From then on it is pretty much half a series of random mini
stories that don't really entertain. There is also a whole lot more ecchi this time around, which is fine for some, however it looks as though they exchanged any pretense of a storyline for more fanservice. There's an extremely weird ending too.
All character development ended with the first season. That's really the only way you can put it. If you were looking for a continuance of some of the romances and rivalries don't bother, they pretty much continue on as they were when the first season left off.
This did not leave me hanging out for more. If there is a third season I doubt I'll bother watching it. Usually I try to find some good points in an any but there just weren't any for me this time around. There may have been a few moments that I laughed throughout the series however this was more because of the ridiculous non-existant plot rather than anything intentional. When is comes down to it, how can you rate an anime in which nothing at all happened?
For all who have seen season 1 and wanted to see more, well sorry but season 2 was handsdown a let down. Why? Well lets start with the fact that in season 2, the creators suddenly (after a whole season of not really carring about this) sencored every little thing which really pissed me off. Thats why i gave art only a 5, i mean yea sure it looked better then before but the censoring took a lot of the beauty of it away in my believe because you pay more attention to the sencoring and less on the art itself. The story itself started
boring, with our hero being a girl?! after that there are some developments but nothing like season 1, still the ending left me wanting more. The sound was normal most of the time, with the execption of a few out of syn voicing. In the end I would give Seikon no Qwaser 2 a 6, compared to the 9 i gave to season 1.
So for the second season of Seikon No Qwaser ...
After seeing the first episodes i thought that this is going to be interesting but what i didn‘t know was that after the 6th ep the rest of the story kinda ended and the rest were just some kind of randomly made episodes because of fan service ... I was truly dissapointed !!!
So if u enjoyed the first season like i did then just watch the first 6 episodes of season 2 and don‘t bother to watch the rest because you will be dissapointed as well .
And for those who liked Mafuyu as Sashas
maria ... well even more dissapointment
