The only good thing about the Hamatora series has been the OP/ED. Will watch the movie I guess.

^ Exactly. The first two episodes of the first season made it seem like a promising series -- and then it snowballed into the mess it is now. By the fourth episode or so I realized that there really was no hope for this series.

And then it got a second season. I still haven't finished it. If I didn't have a bit of a completionist OCD I really wouldn't bother (stares at On-Hold list). And now a movie and SD series? How did it make enough money to warrant that?

Spend the money on rebooting Deadman Wonderland and animating it through the end instead. ;__;

First diabolik lovers, now this.

Is pupa next???

ONII-CHAN. Jfc, a second season of Pupa would be a masterpiece. I hadn't laughed and WTF'd so hard at an anime in ages before that aired.

** I'm actually in the DL game fandom and even I lost my shit when I heard it was getting a second season. The anime was absolutely terrible and there's really no way to fix it. The franchise is just getting a worse rap for itself (and bringing in twelve-year-olds with deluded fantasies about S/M relationships/personalities).

I don't know about the SD, but I'll check out the movie.

I actually like Hamatora so I'm glad they are getting a movie. Just hope it's not a recap

guess there's gotta be some rainy weather to really enjoy beautiful weather. couldn't stand the characters in the 1st season. series not for me.

I couldn't even finish the 1st episode of the 2nd season. I'll pass ~_~

Not sure how I feel about this. I never finished season one, because of life and it was just boring. Season two didn't interest me, and now we're getting more? It feels like they're trying to make it popular on their own...

I might check out the SD series since they usually involve no plot.

Why not?

I'm surprised it even got a S2... does this series even sell? o.O

Watched S1 and couldn't think to put myself through S2. =__=
Hamatora was a planned split-cour from the start

I dropped the second season of Hamatora, it got too serious for my nuts.

I bet it's gonna be some sort of recap...

well i'll be damned

Hamatora is the gift that keeps on giving except that you wish it never gave you anything in the first place.

Oh, more Hamatora.

'Kay I'm in.

Is this franchise really that popular? First season was ok but the second season was crap. I didn't hear anything good about its sales either.

Well I'll probably be watching the SD series as I didn't hate the comedy in the series but the movie will have to wait.

Mar 8, 2015 2:45 PM by IntroverTurtle

Haven't watched the second season, but the first season was okay.

Hope the movie will be somewhat interesting.

Mar 8, 2015 2:16 PM by MistyBlue

I'm not holding my hope up for the movie since it might be a recap.

As for the SD I'm totally watching that I can't wait to see Art and Nice chibified. xD

Movie? Really? I don't understand the producers...well SD series doesn't sound too bad, as long as it's funny. Without plot, some of the characters are pretty fun and interesting on their own. Still, are they gaining anything from this franchise?

Recently finished Re: Hamatora ^-^ Was good.
Gonna watch it.
