If you're here after watching Season 1 and thinking "Why Would I even bother?" then I am here to help you.
I want to start and say that this season is almost un-comparable to the first one. Maybe by looks, since it's the same animation, but almost everything else is better in this one than it was in the first.
I'll be short and specific with this, as I want to just get the basic info out and not have this be 5000 pages.
The story is in such a better spot. Everything is better. Character development, the story telling itself, the card fights, the
movement from emotional to serious and back to more comedic sides. The show got funnier, the characters got more lovable, the story makes more sense, just everything is better.
Art is the same, still amazing.
Sound is the same, if not better. The music is just amazing in this show, the opening, ending, scenes with music, just about everything. Side note, but the main "villian" girl who can't see, her song is just absolutely stunning.
Character is like definitely a 10 pretty much, all the characters have some kind of feeling or improvement, its just amazing.
Enjoyment I think is up to the viewer, if you're not a Cardfight!! Vanguard player, you may find slightly less joy in this anime overall, since it's hard to understand the movement of some of the cards and stuff, but you can still understand it a little as the show definitely provides amazing visuals for everything, I think if you are a player of Cardfight!! Vanguard, you might enjoy this more, as everything is more calculated, intense, funny, and just overall more enjoyable and if you know what the cards do then I feel you'll have even more fun as the fight scenes in this season are a S O L I D.
Overall? I think this is a solid 8(a 9 for me personally, but 8 to the general public). Mainly because I don't think a show like this is for *everyone*, but it is close! It's been awhile since I've truly enjoyed a cardgame anime, and this is also by CLAMP for the art design, so there is just a lot to enjoy for me as a person, but I can see someone else maybe having a little bit of a falling. HOWEVER, if you watched season 1, and want something more, this is definitely the show for you, if you even enjoyed Season 1 a little bit, Season 2 should blow you away. It's been blowing the community away, so I hope whoever out there tries it out even with Season 1 being a bust.
That's all I got, hope you enjoy an amazingly well animated show about cards, emotions, friendship, battles, hardships, funny parts, and more! <3
