With the death of Studio Shaft (look at their Monogatari S2 OPs and observe how stale they are!), druggy anime is almost dead. People are now suffering from withdrawal. They are looking at reality in the face and they couldn't handle it -- no, life is unbearable for all of us. We have become manchildren.
But wait, I hear the voice of our Lord and Savior Itagaki Shin! Just for us suffering plebeians, He gave us Teekyuu almost a year ago. And now, he returns from Heaven and set his feet on our rotting, earthly soil. Teekyuu S2 is more than anything Teekyuu S1 has done:
it has transcended Wimbledon.
And what does Teekyuu S2 teach us?
Many, many incidents no matter what we do (many, many!)
Money, money, all right, everything'll be resolved (money!)
This is a hurricane of energy and instantly that'll get you dizzy.
Sunny with a chance of Teekyuu!
A bit of a slower pacing paired with continuity that makes this a little more bearable than the previous season, but still a complete mess. Again, you can't even laugh or else you'll miss something, so it's a total waste.
No improvement. Well, maybe. I'm unsure. If anything looks better, it's possible I'm just getting used to it.
No improvement here. The intro song is better, though.
Lol what character?
Slightly more enjoyable than the previous season since it had some sort of story to follow, but still a complete mess.

Long story short, if you like Teekyuu, you probably already know. If so, watch this season, as well as the rest, because they only get better from the first season. If you don't like Teekyuu, which most people probably don't, don't waste your time, the jokes only get crazier, and the dialogue only gets faster.
I personally love the type of humor that the anime presents, so I think that this season was great. The only reason I hesitate to give any season of Teekyuu a 10, is purely based off the fact that a large number of the jokes are inaccessible to non-Japanese fans. As
a person who's been watching anime for some time, I can catch on to some of the cultural references, but by no means all of them. Granted that they constitute a pretty significant portion of the jokes made, I only am able to understand 70% or so of the humor in the show. Regardless, the delivery and reactions to said jokes is more than enough to cover that area, and the concentration of gags leaves me laughing anyway.
The animation is perfect for the show - derpy, but still good enough to look like effort was put in.
The OP is a little less jarring than that of the first season, which is good and bad in its own way. It's better in the musical sense, in that it's more like an actual song, however it's a little less to the nature of Teekyuu, with the ASDF-esque animation and exploding characters. The voice acting is great, the seiyuus manage to capture the outright ludicrousness of the characters they portray, which really adds to the delivery of jokes.
The characters are all funny in their own right, and each get screen time, so no problems there.
If you enjoy the 4-koma style of delivery, typical to anima like Seitoukai Yakuindomo!, or Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken (I Don't Understand What My Husband is Saying), you're sure to like Teekyuu. If not, you've wasted two minutes of your time, sucks.
