After the resolution of the debut, Kate and her Doll Emilico have officially become residents of the Shadows House. However, they are under constant vigilance by the Star Bearers—an elite group in charge of the children's wing. In order to escape from their surveillance and the morbid methods they use to keep everyone's loyalty in check, Kate and Emilico must be wary of who to trust and aim to become Star Bearers themselves.

Meanwhile, the Star Bearers have encountered their own problems. A mysterious robed figure dubbed "Master Robe" has trespassed and roams around the children's wing. At first, Master Robe is deemed harmless, but more incidents start occurring that endanger the Dolls' lives—all of them pointing to the suspicious individual.

To improve her reputation, Kate decides to solve the mystery herself. Yet, with so few clues and so many suspects, searching for Master Robe and their motive for attacking the mansion proves more challenging than she imagined.

The first season was a breath of fresh air in the mistery genre and the season 2 is a good sequel to it but not really great. It is enjoyable and the story progresses a bit but the pacing is pretty slow. In the season 2 there are very few new things that we learn about the shadow house and sometimes they just repeat the same things from the season 1. Its nice to see Kate development and how she develops new fighting strategies. It is still a good mistery anime to watch and maybe we will see more in the third season.

Mixed Feelings
Short Review (Spoiler-free):

Shadow House Season 2, like Season 1, is a great production with attractive main characters, beautiful art design, a unique gothic-styled song and some impressive action sequences. Its weakest department is the writing. This season's story is still recovering from the last seasonal finale's premature revelation of the core mystery on which the entire story is built. Fortunately, the 2nd season has a somewhat tighter narrative focused on the "Master Robe" case. Most of the issues I had with Season 1 still apply here, as Shadow House continues to closely follow the formula of "Qing-dynasty Palace Drama" popularized in Asian countries.

Preliminary (8/12 eps)
Shadows House had an okay, somewhat compelling first season, with many thinking it was marred by the final few (non-canon) episodes, but the unique premise, the gothic or victorian atmosphere, the nature of the shadows and their "living dolls," and the world building and plot elements were interesting. Characters and writing were decent enough relative to most seasonal anime. Nothing was especially bad. It could get a little tiresome to look at, despite a decent aesthetic to build upon, as the budget was clearly not high, and the animation was mediocre at best (Clover Works had to save that budget for animating feet in Akebi). ...
