After uncovering the truth behind their father's untimely death, life for the four Shimogamo brothers returns to relative peace with each trying to live up to their father's greatness in their own way. For the eldest, Yaichirou, who aims to become the next Trick Magister and leader of the tanuki society, it starts with reinstating the popular shogi tournament. For Yajirou, it is restoring his former shapeshifting abilities, whilst little Yashirou is content with continuing his work at the family’s factory. But for the third son, Yasaburou, it simply means embracing the "fool's blood" he inherited from his father and living a carefree but interesting life. This, of course, includes hunting for the mysterious and elusive snake-like creature known as a tsuchinoko, and causing ripples of trouble at every turn.

However, these ripples threaten to turn into waves with the return of Nidaime, the estranged son of the brothers' tengu teacher, Professor Akadama. Nidaime bears a grudge against not only his father, but his father's apprentice Benten as well. His loyalties suddenly brought into question, Yasaburou must use his tanuki wit to appease all sides without getting caught in the crossfire, before the delicate balance between human, tengu, and tanuki is overthrown and all hell breaks loose.

Is it because I've crossed the streets of Kyoto numerous times during my life in Kansai? Is it because I'm addicted to both non-high school settings in anime AND a more folkloric take on storytelling?

Perhaps. But I do believe the reason I give 'Uchouten Kazoku 2' a 9/10 goes beyond that:

It's just an amalgam of way too many things done right.

The characters are genuine and while they stick to their designated archetype, none of them get too repetitive. Everyone from the main cast follows through significant character progression and/or resolution, leading up to the finale which wraps things nicely. (Considering the third book hasn't even ...

P.A. Works' first ever anime sequel, adapting Tomihiko Morimi's "The Eccentric Family: The Junior Returns", something which is well written and well crafted just like it's prequel.

Story 10/10
The story continuing from where it was left behind in season 1 yet expanding the universe more and giving enough time to explore and get invested in characters. Tho this time the tension doesn't surround the Tanukis alone but Tengu as well, introducing a key character to the plot known as "Nidaime" son of Akadama aka Sensei.

Art 10/10
The art of this show is second to known, it's unique; the art itself easily creates a lively situation which ...

Mixed Feelings
When watching Eccentric family there was only one prominent feeling i had throughout the shows course, and that is the feeling of deja vu. It felt like i was watching the same show all over again only with several tweaks placed here and there to make the show a tad bit different. New characters are introduced, new conflicts are created, some subplots are added even a romantic one, and maybe tying up a loose end or two. However the story still follows many similar beats to the first season that it starts to feel repetitive, because it seems that the only time there’s any worth ...
