According to this, this is going to be 2 minute anime + 7 minute variety.

I forced myself to watch the first season to the very end, I thought it was finally over. All the pain and suffering. But it's too late; I've already buckled in and there's no escape.

At....least it's going to be 10 minutes each now?
Maybe that might give them enough time to actually have shit happen and provide literally any semblance of depth.
...doubt it, but I guess I'll watch to see if it's at least remotely better then s1.

I didn't like the first season that much.... yet I'm going to watch the second season anyway. What is wrong with me?!

We're on the same boat. (°-°)/
Im curious wether this will be better or worse than the first season, considering it will be 10 minutes per episode instead of two minutes...

I enjoyed the first season but I thought it concluded well and did what it needed to do. I don't know what they will bring for the second season but.. it's not necessary. But why not. I will leave my judgement after I watched it.

Hmmmm, I don't think so. The announcement scroll was already there since ep.10, and the ep. itself was the conclusion of the series.

I see info episode aired the usual time.


I'm sorry for not checking it clearly yesterday. The entry is here.

Was the first season of this really any good? I decided not to watch it , but now it gets a second season? Also, CROWDFUNDING? Shouldn't that tell you something about the producers (hint: it involves them not wanting to spend more money on a project that wasn't (very?) successful in the first place)? Right, just checked - it has a 4.82 rating. Even for a two-minute anime, that is TERRIBLE. Revoking previous statement about it possibly being successful. Time to find another anime to watch.


It was insubstantial. Two minute animes can be funny or clever but this one just did a really terrible sort of romance and it was pretty painful to watch. There are so many better romance anime/manga that why would you even bother with this.

This show wasn't good or bad, it wasn't anything. Like just... nothing. Not in a SOL way, in a garbage way. If people want to spend money on more minutes of it, more power.
