It is impossible to enjoy the Vandread series without watching Vandread: The Second Stage. I believe that between the 2 series, the second one is superior.

Obviously, the second season is a continuation of the story that began in the first season. What I noticed about the second season is that all characters went through huge developments; if not, revelations. I don’t want to give out too many spoilers, but in the second season Hibiki is moving closer to his goal of proving his existence, his relationship with Dita is improving even more, and we learn more about characters such as Meia, Jura, Magno and B.C.

Highs: Smooth animation; stunning CGI
seamless plot continuation;
distinctive characters

Lows: Nothing too new; transition between comedy and
drama may lose some viewers; a not so spectacular ending

Review: As a direct sequel, Vandread: The Second Stage picks up exactly where the First Stage left off. Generally when dealing with a sequel we are left with an anime that tries too hard to better the original but in the end simply cannot compare. Thankfully, that is not the case as we have a powerful continuation that follows through with the strengths of its predecessor and takes it a step further to the next level.

Unlike other sequels, The Second read more

Pure feelings
Justice

It is not:
Scientifically correct
Deep complicated storyline
Detailed past and future explanation
Detailed description of non-core characters


Storyline:
The storyline is not too complicated, but perfectly answers all the questions it has read more

Second Stage:

This show is just a perfect continuation of the first season, if you liked season 1 you will love season 2. Some may disagree, but i think they are few and far between.

Love interest play out, foes come to light, and old friends reappear in this perfect continuation.

Finality is the word for this season, and although everything gets pretty much wrapped up, i felt like i wanted so much more at the end.
