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.

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 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.
