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.

Mixed Feelings
The first season was my 2nd most favourite slice of life/drama anime of all time (topped by Yahari) and I enjoyed the second season but the tone was very different from the first. It dragged the drama to the next episode and then the next and then the next until the last one. I loved many scenes in it especially with Kato, but the anime didn't go as I wished the first season would.
First season gave me positive feelings and appreciation for every small thing, but the second season made me feel that watching it was a chore not fun anymore. It was depressing and ...

Saekano.. I can't say I had high hopes for season 2, but I was definitely hoping for at least an improvement from season 1. And boy was I disappointed. If anything it's a downgrade, which is frustrating considering so little romcoms get a season 2.

First off, the show picks up after the events of season 1 which, is fine and all until the events unfold and you realize there's no development of any of the characters.
