The life of the once ordinary middle school student Sakura Kusakabe changed when an angel by the name of Dokuro-chan moved into his house. This heartwarming story of love, desire and... bloodshed continues as Sakura's normal everyday life slowly crumbles into a bloody mess.
What can I say, a bit more of same-old Dokuro chan, although the second season manages to be even less politically correct than the first one (tons and tons of ecchi) .No story to speak of, no character developpement, but if that's what you were looking for in this anime you have issues:)
Apart from that, an episode of this series never fails to deliver when you need 10 minutes of stupid/cruel/ecchi humor.Call me twisted, but I still chuckle every time Sakura kun gets clubbed to death:)
Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan 2 can basically be described as this: Over the top comedy and violence, complimented with pointless story and echhi-ness on the side.
It picks up where the first season left off, (well with the cast appearance anyway) and gives you even more of what the first had to offer.
Honestly if this anime series could talk, it would say: "Story? What is this story of which you speak of?" Because quite frankly there is none whatsoever, if you have ever seen season one then you may be surprised that everything the actual storyline (if you can even call it that) had built
up to that point, seems to have gone right out the window. In fact it kind of confused me when I started this second season. The way the first half ended left many things up in the air, and instead of continuing it from where it left off, it simply just decided to put all characters together as one big happy family, whether or not they actually were so in the first half. Anyway, there is no plot at all to speak of, basically we see Sakura (main male lead) get into all sorts of over the top situations with Dokuro-chan and her friends. Whether it be simply taking a bath together, (in their swimsuits no less) or getting trapped inside some magical box. It does differ from one another so you don't feel you are re-watching recycled content scenes from the first part. They also boosted the over all "echhi-ness" factor and over the top "violence." So whether you either loved or hated Dokuro-chan's content before, it will mostly increase two full this time around! So if you are new to the series, just be aware that it contains more extreme themes regarding these. Oh and they also added about two new characters, nice for its 2 episode length. Though I personally would have liked for it to continue further than that. There is no character development whatsoever.......nor an actual ending to this either, as you could basically switch the first and last episodes with each other and it wouldn't make much difference. And the way they threw the story out, this series could honestly keep going on for an eternity, all the while making you laugh the entire way. Honestly I just found this title drop dead hilarious at times, as many on the comedy scenes are pretty darn clever......dirty and bloody as they may be.
Bright colorful, sharp and lovable, and definitely on par from what you would expect of the series. (though they seem to have given the overall characters a bit more of a mature-er look to them) The character design is not fully different from what you may be accustomed to wanting, but the design and artwork truly have a distinctiveness to them. I especially like how they cut and copy actual animal faces, (or even real life historical characters on occasion) and stuck them on selected characters; Whom of which have been cursed by Dokuro-chan herself! So yeah it varies on the artwork, most of the time you'll see the standard colorful fair, and others you'll see real life western style paintings and character art playing a role in the wackiness. Backgrounds were good and detailed for the most part, but never really come off as anything great or unique, and look pretty standard overall.
They actually re-made the opening theme from the first part, its okay and all but just isn't quite as carefree and happy as the first. The ending song was pretty beat-ish, basically it has all the characters in yukata's (summer kimonos) dancing to this happy kind of drum beat, all the while singing along, which may tempt you to sway along with it. The background music is pretty forgettable though, nothing really stands out as most are just generic sounding pop beats. I honestly didn't even notice the BG most of the time.
Great as usual, all the characters retain their varied personalities from the first half. From Dokuro-chans innocent yet murderous intent, to Shizuki's (supporting role) tender caring attitude. Which is quite nice considering nothing in this title is taken seriously, and I am glad that the company went out and actually gave each character a good variety of persona's! Though I think most viewers out there will either love or hate a guy named Zansu, as he can be an extreme in the personality department. Not the most memorable cast out there, but great for this style of anime. Though I feel I should stress it once again, zero character development.
Bottom Line: 8/10
"Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan 2" ups everything in content from the first season, chances are you will either love it or hate it more depending on your taste. It remains a solid watch for what it brings to the table. If you like echhi-ness complimented with over the top comical violence, then you will absolutely love this series, if not then you will loath it all the more and find it overall pointless. Good solid watch for fans and viewers who can appreciate its approach in comedy content.
Overall, this has been a positive year so far. Lots of really strong series, nothing too bad. Obviously, that had to change at some point. Which is why we find ourselves looking at the follow up to Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan, a terrible anime from Hal film maker about an angel who beats her love interest to death, brings him back to life and that's basically the big joke that we kept getting. I'm not looking forward to this one, but let's move in and see how many more gruesome domestic abuse scenes they can cram in and treat as humorous.
We pick up where the
last series left off. Sakura is living with the angel sisters, Dokuro and Zakuro. He's trying to live a normal life and get the attention of the girl he likes at his school but that's consistently ruined by Dokuro torturing and murdering him, but it's okay because she brings him back to life afterwards and that makes it funny because... people dying horribly and gruesomely is hilarious according to this series.
The humour is much the same kind of thing that the first series offered. We have gross out humour with the over the top gore effects and perverted humour that's really used more as an excuse to show Dokuro and Zakuro in skimpy outfits than it is for actual comedic attempts. This is one of those series that seems to be based firmly on the idea that sex and violence sell and you don't need any charm or clever witticisms. After all, even semi-clever jokes would have interfered with this OVA's mission to route your blood flow away from the brain. The humour is also quite repetitive with Dokuro getting angry and mutilating or murdering Sakura with little or no provocation. It really shouldn't be possible for a joke to get stale with less than an hour of content, but they manage. So, does this one have any legitimately funny moments at all? Personally, I thought that Corpse Party did the over the top violent humour much better and it wasn't trying to be funny.
This cast of characters is pretty horrendous. I'll give comedic series some leeway when it comes to character complexity since they really only need to play off of each other well for comedic purposes, but this cast doesn't even have that much going for them. We get the same few unfunny pay-off reactions repeated.
The artwork is pretty lazy with fountains of blood gore effects, really basic character designs and minimal backgrounds. The most effort they put in is for the tacky fan-service scenes. Which shouldn't be surprising after the first series.
Like the first series, the theme tune is easily the best aspect of Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan 2. However, it is weakened a bit by being a pretty lazy remix of the first series' theme tune. Rather like Toei did with Futari Wa Precure: Max Heart. The acting is either obnoxiously exaggerated or emotionless and dull, depending on which character is speaking. Which is a pity since there are some really good actresses here. Chiba Saeko, to give an example, voiced Nina in Code Geass, Azmaria in Chrno Ctrusade & Natsuki in Mai-Hime/Otome. She can give such strong performances. It just doesn't happen here because there's nothing to work with.
There are some “jokes” that imply that Zansu is romantically interested in Sakura. Aside from that, there's really not any.
This series is not good, at all. It's crude, tacky and generally tasteless with the same basic jokes the first OVA had. So, if you're a fan of the gross out/ fan-servicey humour, you might get a kick out of it otherwise, I would stay far away. For myself, I was not amused. I was quickly annoyed by the series and tired of its nonsense. I give Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan 2 a 2/10. Next week we'll move away from sequels and talk about Charlotte.
Going into the second season I was really expecting it to be just as bad as the first season yet there were actually a few elements that made the second season a bit more tolerable to watch.
The story continues with Sakura and Dokuro doing random stuff however the second season only has 2 episodes whereas the first had 4 which to me was an improvement since it meant not having to watch it as long and another slight improvement was the antics that the duo got up to which actually didn't involve much of the school or their schoolmates instead it focused
on a more select group of characters which felt a bit more decent to watch.
Once again though the story goes nowhere yet even more this time since there wasn't really a story to begin with in the first place although I did like the moment where the characters got trapped in a prison made to contain angels which did add a bit of suspense because we didn't know how they were going to get out of there.
Now the characters are a little better not because of Sakura or Dokuro because they are still the same, but because of some characters in season 1 getting some more screentime like Zakuro and Zansu who felt like the only decent characters of the show and I really liked how they used these characters more especially Zakuro who seemed like a waste of a good character in season 1, luckily they decided to make her a main character this season which made the show a little more tolerable to watch.
Once again the art is pretty much the only good thing about the show and the show does improve the character design's this season although I don't know why they turned Dokuro's hair from a light purple and into a turquoise blue which didn't make any sense however I did like some of the locations especially the angel prison which may have looked bland it actually held it's fair share of traps which was pretty interesting.
The op this time isn't as bad as season 1's op, but that isn't really saying much to be honest it's still ear bleedingly hurtful to listen to.
The comedy was a little better since it didn't fully focus on Sakura getting smashed into bits so many times by Dokuro instead it puts the characters into bad situations and tries to make their actions funny which was an improvement.
The Ecchi side was a little heavier too even having a bath scene with Sakura, Dokuro and Zakuro which was a little steamy, but nothing I haven't seen before.
Overall this was a small improvement over the first season and it sucks you'd have to watch the first season to get here then again it's not really worth you're time as the improvements this season still weren't enough for me to give it a much higher score.
