Hm, the second cour has a very familiar with the first half imo. I like that new pink haired lady though. Actually, I think more than one new female character is introduced this episode. Lovely.

The season still retains the familiar transformation of the mech police. Decent action, surprisingly, I think this was a good start for the second cour.

The op not bad at all. Adding some new character, especially 2 newbie joined the unit 8. The whole anime mood pretty much the same as season 1, still i like it.

Lol Sena and Asami's CM is just hilarious. Wait what? Sena with his own company and Asami is not there anymore, well they will be back sooner or later anyway.

Next episode we get to see a new willwear, most likely wear by the newbies.

why shit like this gets another season is beyond me.

Why people like you bother to pointlessly complain is beyond me.

Anyway, I never understood all the hate this show got on MAL (Though really a lot of MAL users just kind of hate mecha-esque shows and shows that don't take themselves seriously in general). Season one was very good, likable characters and pretty fun action. Episode itself was great, a good re-introduction to the cast and the art and animation is a lot better than the first season's.

I didn't really like the first season, but I liked the way it was going near the end. Seems like the second season might turn out to be better. Overall decent episode I guess. Production values seem a lot better too. OP is pretty average though. I forgot all of the character names, so I'll need to check over that :p

Well I don't really which one to be focused at... The new member OR maybe that Sena's commercial.
Well, no more fun for now. Aside from that director Abigail funny way of talking, it's 3 Oscars straight to the action.

That glasses really help after all. LOL

Really liking the girl who freaks out whenever she sees people.

Good start into the 2nd cour. Still though, this show feels like it really only needed 1 cour to do its job (the ending to the 1st cour was rather conclusive). Not complaining too much though.

idk why I chose to pick this up again, I just barely made my way through the first cour without dropping it, but as some episodes were decent I gave it a chance

But this has the same blandness as the original, only thing saving it were the new characters, Abigail is the only reason to watch this.

Pretty amusing premiere. They did switch around a few elements, but the show is still fundamentally the same and I can relax in order to enjoy it.

I really have to wonder about why some people even care enough to watch things they absolutely don't like, somehow expecting them to suddenly become something completely different in the process.

This is a lighthearted action show. That's all there is to it. "Lighthearted" doesn't translate into high octane balls-to-the-walls battles, complex character development, huge stakes, lots of blood and corpses or tragic drama.

If you think it's a crime against entertainment to make a silly show about silly cops doing silly things to silly criminals, then I don't know why you are still reading this post.

I enjoyed a lot the first season, especially the final was so exciting.
I felt a little sad when they said that Asami and Sena weren't in the Unit anymore, but it also was touching and very good for this start of season... Now Sena has come back and I'm very, very happy because I think there are going to be more troubles and they'll need more people so maybe Asami comes back too.
Honestly, I missed The Eighth.

I think this picked up pretty well. I enjoyed the first season and it looks like they'll deliver again. I'm glad Unit 8 is being treated better since they're seen as heroes now instead of screw ups like last season, and there's no more of that annoying "we aren't being granted permission" stuff that happened in practically every episode the first season.

The new characters seem like they might add something too. Can't wait to see what their willwears look like when they eventually get their own.

IIRC you dropped season 1. Why the hell would you bother with the 2nd season to begin with if that's the case? Its not like its a time reset or anything.

Ooooh that was a nice return of the show. It was enjoyable to watch - kinda like being home again :V

Not gonna predict anything for this season, but I liked how it started.

First of all i enjoyed the first season of active raid as it had an interesting story, setting and
a great cast of characters. The voice acting was also pretty good as well especially
Asami's seiyuu Ari Ozawa who is one of my top ten seiyuus.

So as a result im glad that they decided to make another season for it. From this episode
It looks like the story should be more interesting due to the new villains and the inclusion
of new characters should make the story much better.

As long as it retains the descent story, character interaction and mecha action from the first season im fine with it

I do not love this Anime, but enjoyed it though.

Sena rejoin the team too fast, it would be great if he rejoined the team in the middle of season with more heroic-come-back scene

I assume that's more likely to happen with one or two of the other missing characters.

2 new foreigners and a scopophobia girl, seems Mythos grew long hair. Character designs are pretty good.
Campy power rangers is back. That villain game was like the opposite of tiger bunny setup.
