After finally completing the first route of his visual novel, Blessing Software's producer Tomoya Aki is optimistic about the future of his team and achieving their goal of creating the best game of the season.

However, they still have a long way to go. For one, Megumi Katou still has an incredibly flat personality and is unable to fit the role of Tomoya's ideal heroine. The other members of Blessing Software, Eriri Spencer Sawamura, Utaha Kasumigaoka, and Michiru Hyoudou, often forget she is even there due to her lack of presence and character.

Throughout the development of their game, Blessing Software learns the struggles of working in an industry where deadlines must be met and edits are made constantly, and the hardships of working in a group setting.

After the lighthearted fun of season one, i originally wasn´t that excited for season two. The show was good yes, but it didn´t really do something in particular to really stand out from the rest. So after watching the first few episodes of season two, i was extremely surprised. This was everything i wanted from a show like this.

Story - 8/10

Wow, i did not expect this to be as mature and well written as it was. If season one was a lighthearted story about getting a group of friends together for a project, this was about holding the group together and ...

Mixed Feelings
After watching its two seasons, I can comfortable to say that it's pretty watchable. I actually quit this anime few years ago because of fanservice and I find it pretty boring to watch. When I tried watch it again, I think that with its flaws and all, I think it's much better than any other trash anime out there. The fanservice didn't annoyed me as much as I did in other raunchy anime shows. The story was pretty decent and kept me engage enough in every episodes although there are times that I still feel like it's a bit slow and it still have ...

Quick Thoughts:
Attempts to add drama and depth to basic harem fell flat.

This season covers some backstory between Eriri and Utaha, the completion of Blessing Software's game, and plans for the group going forward. Central to all of this is the group (Namely Eriri, Utaha, and Megumi) putting pressure on Tomoya to make his priorities clear, both business-wise and romantically. There's little to no subtlety put into how this is presented, and the end result is something frustrating to watch. Whether it's through direct communication or subliminally through the scripts they write for the game, the girls feelings and expectations are in plain sight for Tomoya, ...
