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.

There really isn't a more sincere and authentic anime out there today. The eccentric family 2 is a much-needed continuation of the universe masterfully crafted in The eccentric family season 1.

Story: 10/10
The eccentric family is one of those extremely rare anime where the story doesn't make any effort to spoonfeed it's audience explanations or justifications for what's happening. Watching the story unfold in this anime is like watching a river flow, you might not know the in-depth details of every little intricacy of the universe, but the flow of the story is that much better for it. The stories told in this anime are fun, ...

Eccentric Family has become one of my personal favorites lately, with its unique art style, storytelling, and lively characters. When I first saw a second season was coming, honestly, I didn't know where the story could advance any further. For me, it was kind of closed off in a nice manner, although there were some threads left undone.


As I said, I wasn't sure where this show could advance any further with its story, but I had to admit: it was as good (or even better), than that of the first season. The flow of the show stayed similar, following the acts of young Yasaburo, ...

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 ...
