A good gag anime is one that can make us laugh. A great gag anime is one that can not only make us laugh, but can creep on us with the unexpected.
Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san. Z is a sequel which you can expect the same things from its predecessor. More characters, laughs, slapstick, silly gory scenes, lewd jokes, the works, but one of the grand things about the sequel is not only the comedy, but the sudden twists in events. The sequel is a great addition with more antics and problems needed to be solved than before, by our cast.
If you've watched the
first season then you'll know what to expect. Our summoners and demons take on jobs, solving them in the most strangest of ways and doing even more hilariously bizarre things on their time off. However, unlike its predecessor, this sequel gives more to the viewer then before, thought all our demons were good for was some comedy? Think again, for unforeseen events take place that can make you actually wonder if you're still watching the same comedy-filled show you started.
The art and animation are nothing to glorify, but it all fits well for this anime when it comes to the slapstick and characters. Nothing has changed that you haven't seen before in the first season.(Which I hope you have done before coming here)
What's a good gag anime without great sound to make the experience more enjoyable? To the over the top acting done by the demons, to the background music fitting in with a scene whether it be some sort of fierce battle, comedy and even depressing scenes. They most certainly took great attention to the sound and it came out great.
Character progression is not something to focus on when it comes to the humor. All we need to know is the personalities of each character and you're good to go. Whether it be a lustful demon, a shit-eater, or a masochist, the characters will play that part for the rest of the show. The characters are shallow with no real development, but that's not what is really important to this anime. What makes the characters interesting is their interactions with one another. The things they do and say to each other is what makes it great, making their pain, your enjoyment and with more demons then before, there's plenty of that!
While Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san. Z is not the funniest anime I've seen it did not fail to make me laugh or even feel other surprising emotions later on. The episodes are short and sweet leaving room for more hilarity in every episode at the expense of just a little of your time. While the humor is crude, it's funny, but it isn't for everyone. However, those whom are okay with some good crude humor, prepare for a blast.
Yondemasu Yo, Azazel-san. Z is what I'd like to say, a success to its prequel. It's not perfect, but it does its job in the comedy department and even tries to overstep its boundary and go the extra mile. If you're looking for something to kill-time and get a laugh, take a seat, 10 minutes is all you need.
...and LA thought the first season got the limit of being vulgar, crass and raunchy as hell.
Z's the continuation of the first season bringing in more demons, thus more vulgarity and crass, more of humanity is doomed because of us as a species and sometimes it's not even the demons fault! and more butt monkeying of Azazel-san and Sakuma.
LA will say about Z if it's anything but the first season taken up to an eleven on what the limits of the censors is in Japan, because holy hell does Z take it up a notch. From the talk of casual rape,
to a censored penis taken up by the show's title card (no seriously), casual gore, envy being rampant and erectile dysfunction on Saitama Man...hmmm LA think the order should had been backwards by the looks of the severity of it all. Z does NOT let up, so if your easily offended by ANYTHING LA even mentioned then this season is telling that this season got an upgrade...for better or worse.
Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san Z's animation done once again by Production IG has very detailed works on many of the animation styles it takes and of course how much of the censors it swiftly avoided in the first place. The animation like the first season is expected quality of Production IG, even to a crass as fuck anime short.
The voice acting is pretty decent as well, once again, LA liking Rina Sato in this season though she took a somewhat of a backseat in this season, instead we have Masaya Onosaka as the titular Azazel-san getting LA's favourite of this season if only because we got MUCH more of a screentime this season and Masaya showing off his vocal range a bit more here.
Because of this, LA saw that by all accounts mos tof the situation the Detective Agency came across was that Sakuma dealt with many of the minor "villains" or threats this season, while Azazel-san got the position of butt monkey ALL the way through this season, with even Sakuma not giving a shit about him in frequency and nonchalant pessimism than the first season
LA will say this like LA said about the first season, Yondemasu Azazel-san doesn't care for pity, mercy or hope at all for any of the characters, be it demons, lowly humans or the perverted angels or Azazel-san's GOD himself are all characters of contempt and schadenfreude in all situations that comes their way, people might actually gain a bit of comedy from this, some does not, but either way, Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san will be Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san and it won't give a shit what you think.
Z is showing itself to take the censors to the ACTUAL limit of Japanese censors and laughing itself to the screen, if you like Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san's patented schadenfreudian comedy then Z will be deliver in the bucketloads.
There is only 3 constants in Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san...
*Sakuma will always get the short end of the stick...
*Azazel-san will take that stick and become the butt monkey to even worse punishment
*And DO NOT MESS WITH AKUTABE...
Why haven't anyone written a review for this is beyond me. Firstly, do watch the prequel as you will not fully appreciate what is going on unless you watch the prequel.
Story: This is a episodic anime and basically it was adapted from a gag anime so the story is literally full of crap but so funny. I won't recommend anyone looking for this to develop into something serious. This is a comedy and it stays true to what it is.
Art: The animation is okay but there are serious level of ugliness going on here however it is done for comedic purposes.
Sound: No complaints
Character: The characters in this anime are horrible. Their personalities are very very bad and they are crude, shallow and sometimes detestable. However, this is absolutely exploited for humour.
Enjoyment: If you don't mind a bit of blasphemy, sexism and ecchi, this is the type of anime with dark humour you can enjoy. And sort of feel evil about.
