Thanks to Professor Yuuko Kouzuki's technology and Kasumi Yashiro's psychic powers, Cadet Takeru Shirogane travels back to his original world. With no time to lose, Takeru aims to enlist Yuuko's help in his world to complete the Alternative IV project—the last hope humanity has against the BETA, an alien species invading the planet. As the anti-BETA project nears completion, Takeru and other cadets graduate from the Yokohama pilot training academy.

However, during a test of the new operating system for the Tactical Surface Fighters—the giant combat suits used by humanity against their adversary—the BETA ambush Takeru and his team. Barely escaping with his life, Takeru is left traumatized after witnessing the cruel death of one of his close friends.

Losing his will to fight, Takeru flees back to the other world, where he experiences a similar tragedy. According to Yuuko's theory, people from parallel universes are bound to suffer the same fate. As a result, Takeru must overcome his trauma if he wants to protect the ones he holds dear.

This season is a big improvement over the first in every aspect. The mech visuals are good as always, and they even got the classic VN OP singers back to sing the OP for this season. It's less confusing for newcomers due to reaching the more exciting part of the story that also does not rely on unadapted material that much and has many fights, the character animation is more consistent with far fewer weird-looking moments, and the aforementioned good mech animation is used for those large-scale fights to its fullest potential. Season 1 was already notably better after the first three episodes, but this ...

TL;DR: It's almost like this show is really goddamn enjoyable and peak hype when the focus is on the Mechs and humanity's desperate battle against this unstoppable, existential threat

Story: This is what we've been edging for!

When it comes down to it, this whole thing is about retaking Sado back from the BETA after losing the island in the first episode of Season 1. It's a simple premise, but up until the latter half of Season 2, the plot and the pacing felt whack and derailed. Sure, the whole thing about alternate realities and jumping between timelines to save the world is interesting, but if I ...

I gave it a 6 because most of the story is there BUT... they completely sacrificed all character development. The VN spent a great deal of time describing each character but the anime writers just threw it all away leaving an empty husk behind. But why? Why not just do it well?

I still have voice acting issues as well, especially the guy who voiced Takeru. He's the MC yet they picked a guy who basically just finished acting school and in fact this is his first gig. Granted he's a bit better than in season 1 but that's not saying much. He still lacks ...
