The summer of a man's boyhood memories continue. Still on the cusp between childhood and being a man, he has linked with the ghost of a young woman from the World War 2 era. She, and the ghosts of other young ladies from that time, continue adventures alongside their linked partners, learning more about each other and travelling through time via their supernatural connection. While he struggles to see his crush on her come to fruition, meanwhile his friend—a girl his age, pretending to be a boy—seeks his attention as well.

Short summary:

Not as good as the first season, but still worth watching.

Long summary:

Season 1 of Natsu no Arashi!, if I had to describe it in one sentence, was a captivating mixture of drama, romance, comedy, and some action with a quirky "retro but modern" feel.

Story: (6 - Fair)
The concept of Arashi and Hajime traveling back in time to the World War II era to save people was a big part of Season 1. However, for most of the first portion of Akinaichuu, this ...

Mixed Feelings
Not long ago I looked at the first series of Natsu no Arashi. It was okay, suffering quite a bit from tonal problems, repeating an episode basically wholesale and some jokes that didn't work, but it also had quite a few good points and it was decent overall. So, does the second series improve on any of those aspects? Does it degrade? Let's take a look and see how it compares.

Preliminary (7/13 eps)
This is the second season of Natsu no Arashi.

However, it could be watched separately because the plot has lost all of its substance. It s only light comedy sketches and the episodes are completely independant.

In addition, the gags are not funny and overused in this second season, and a lot of them were already used in the first season, so it didn t make me laugh anymore. When you hear 20 times the same joke, you become as exasperated as the guy asking for salt since episode 1. For exemple, there is an episode where one of the characters transform in a funny fantasy character, ...
