In the first season of B: The Beginning, two men confronted their own past with great sacrifice. Maverick detective Keith Flick fought against his demons and finally exposed the dark secrets behind the Kingdom of Cremona. Mutant wunderkind Koku finally reunited with the most precious memory from his stolen childhood. Several months have passed since then, and the entire world seems to have forgotten the turmoil caused by those events. As Keith returns to the Royal Police to conduct his own investigation, Koku and Yuna try to enjoy an ordinary life in peace. But the consequences of the Jaula Blanca experiments are far from being extinct, as Koku soon discovers when his supposedly dead lab mate Kirisame suddenly shows up.

As far as I'm concerned—this sequel doesn't exist.

I enjoyed the original B: The Beginning. The ending was okay. They didn't need to make this. It was initially supposed to be a twelve-episode-long sequel, but they trimmed it down to six—at the expense of a coherent story. B was never a tightly written masterpiece, but it was watchable. B: The Beginning Succession is illogical, stupid, boring, and it has a terrible title. Why didn't they call it B: The End? Or B: The Second?!

While watching this sequel, I felt like no one cared. No one cared about the continuity of the show. The action scenes read more

Personally I loved the first season and I can't understand why everyone doesn't seem to like this one. I mean yes this season is just a bridge to a season 3 but the issues that were set up in this one are really interesting and I can't wait to see what happens next.

In this second season we learn a lot more about Keith's psychology and Kokuu's past
I sincerely believe that the outcome of this will be truly amazing and that people should stop complaining. However, it is true that I find it difficult to understand why I made a "bridge" season. When he could read more

I enjoyed season one of B: The Beginning and watched it twice. Season two is quite a disappointment because it took three years to release six mediocre episodes. Season two lacks a story, and it almost feels like Production I.G (studio) did not know what to do with the characters.

The only character that I enjoyed this season was Lily Hoshina. Keith Kazama was a joke this season. Keith Kazama Flick was not helpful such as his detective work in season one. The Royal Investigation Service (RIS) characters were not as prominent as season one. I noticed two characters who never got introduced until halfway through read more

B: The Beginning Succession is an underwhelming sequel to the original show. The first season did not exactly set a high bar either, with incredibly poor pacing at the start but overall contained a decent story. Succession suffers from the opposite problem, where the pacing is good but the story itself is rather uninteresting.

I re-watched the first season just before starting the second so that I could better judge this show as a sequel.

This review will assume you have already watched B: The Beginning (the first season).

We are introduced to many new antagonists but we are never told clearly why they believe in what read more
