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.

I don't think you should watch this unless you're a fast reader (if you're watching subs... I don't think there are any official dubs). On top of that, I also recommend that you watch this all in one feel swoop. The plot moves so quickly it's hard to keep up.
Usually every episode has its own mini plot and it's completely forgotten about afterwards, but a few episodes link together sometimes. None of these make sense, but it's mostly just like reading crack fanfiction, if you're familiar with it. It's also similar to those crack voice actor panels. Either way, if you're a fan of
either of those things, you might like this.
The art got better. In the first season, it was very choppy, but now it's more smooth and the colors and brighter and new backgrounds are tackled. It definitely makes it easier to watch.
The characters are very stagnant and stupid with no character development, but that's part of what makes the show funny.
I enjoyed it enough. I'm not sure why I'm watching this-- some of the jokes make me chuckle, but there isn't anything super funny to be honest. I think at this point I just need a break from the darker, longer, plot-heavy shows I watch, and this is just a nice dose of stupidity. :) This will definitely make your mood lighter after a long or depressing day, I can say that at least.
I would recommend this if you: like crack fanfiction, like crack va panels, liked the first season
I would NOT recommend this if you: are a slow reader and plan on watching the subs, like overarching plot, are looking for a sports anime, don't process jokes quickly
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.
