After surviving the onslaught at Sarugaku headquarters, Sousuke Banba resumes his investigation of the Kagewani monster hybrids. Armed with the ability to harness the Kagewani's power, the researcher now has a means to eliminate the creatures. But despite the benefits of this skill, it has one major drawback: Sousuke now struggles to maintain his sanity, with the power threatening to consume his body.

Soon, threats old and new begin to rear their heads, as the upper echelons of Sarugaku become active once again and an assassin with a personal vendetta sets her sights on Sousuke. Nevertheless, he resolutely forges ahead on his mission, determined to track down the origins of the Kagewani and eliminate their threat once and for all.

Kagewani: Shou is the second season of Kagewani series. I would recommend watching it after you finish the first season because some parts could be a little bit confusing if you jump directly into the second one. And for you who already watched the first season and enjoyed it, you must definitely watch the second one too, because it’s amazing.

The episodes are pretty much all connected together and the plot is really exciting and easy to follow because it mostly revolves around Banba and his fight with Kagewani. The origin of Kagewani is also explained and there are some interesting new characters and new types read more

Kagewani: Shou (Act II) is the second season to Kagewani which continues the interesting story which tells an intriguing narrative of the main character Sousuke Banba a genetic engineer and his investigations of surreal monsters in Japan. Kagewani: Shou continues after season one where Sousuke Banba constantly battles for equilibrium with the powerful Kagewani. Kagewani: Shou continues to use comic-like animation and suspenseful ambiance music that perfectly captures mise-en-scene, to create a thrillingly, interesting show that will leave you hooked and craving for more as the plot thickens. Although, the episodes are only roughly seven minutes and fifty seconds long it crams a lot of read more

I feel like they were trying something new with this and failed miserably. The first season was a set of short horror stories tied together by certain characters. With the second one, there is a confusing story line.

The art and sound were okay, with the 'squelching' noise being the most clear. I liked the touch of binuaral here and there as characters voices shifted from ear to ear. One complaint I have read more

Kagewani Shou is one of those typical sequels that tried doing something different and new, but in that process it lost sight of what was actually good about the original and became bad as a result of this. If you liked the original Kagewani, then you will most likely not enjoy Kagewani Shou, because it went on a completely different route than its predecessor.

The original Kagewani was a collection of short horror stories that were only loosely tied together by the central recurring characters of Banba and Kimura. In comparison to this Kagewani Shou tried to have a story, a controlled narrative and a read more
