Following the first season's gag action theme, the second season titled To Be Heroine features an original story and a new set of characters.

You is about to leave home when she suddenly enters an incredible world. Appearing in front of her is an eight-year-old naked boy, and before she could even grasp the situation, she's attacked by assassins from a mafia group who were chasing the young boy. What was even more unrealistic for You was that the leader of this mafia was another assassin's attack.

Who are those naked kids, why did her shoe turn into a warrior and above all, what kind of world did eight-year-old boy come from? Just like the first one, he's also almost naked! While trying to escape from the attackers, You loses one of her shoes and by a strange kind of magic, her shoe turned into a warrior who was able to save her by blocking the You enter?

Writing this review partially to clear up something: there are some people who are confused because the series is listed as having 12 episodes, but there are only 7 if you try to watch it. This is because the original 12-episode Chinese version was converted into 7 episodes for the Japanese version, I think due to having unusual episode lengths or something. The series was also heavily edited in that process, which is why pacing in certain scenes might feel a bit strange.

Anyway, the review: For me, the show's main selling points were its animation and story. The animation is seriously good, with the show ...

This is quite interesting piece. The plot is quite entertaining and it can give you that emotional kick if you will turn a blind eye on some of the more silly ideas.

The review has some minor spoilers, if it offends you please stop further reading. It is also my first review so I am hoping it will be useful to someone, who does not know whether to watch the series.

The main premise of fighting with your clothes is kind of interesting, could be done better as not many characters have any accent of the cloth they come from, or it is not very visible. ...

I am not truly sure which part of this series annoyed me the most. Perhaps the half-Japanese half-Chinese voice acting which served no purpose in the series whatsoever. The Chinese parts were not acted in any sense of the word, instead just spoken in the most monotonous and personality-lacking way imaginable.

Our main character was not much better. Heroine-chan is simply uninteresting and boring. Basically every 5th word in her dialog is "sorry", which would be somewhat meme if she was Canadian. Every time she forms a sentence, she takes the first part of the sentence back and starts over from the beginning. I fail to ...
