I actually hope that the little bit at the end just meant that the sister would just be occurring regularly in the story, rather than her being the entire focus now.

I know some people found Azuma annoying, but I'd much rather see more of him and the other members who have started to mature, rather than his sister who has a weird hybrid of a over-hyper/know-it-all/elitist personality. Plus she was on board with the American team and was totally ok with the Treasure Island, her home, being shot down. Honestly her personality is the same as her obnoxious child self, just ten fold.

From her first short reappearance midway, it hinted she's a potential main antagonist, at least against A chan's ideals. Not sure about personality since the huge timeskip. But what's interesting is the show gives characterization to the antagonists, explaining various Reoko & teammates' backstories. At the start Reoko appeared as a simple dictator who vilified Migiwa. Now we know her weird Migiwa relationship & their motives. It goes beyond hero fighting the 1D villain, so I'm hoping Guy & Kaoruko explain their timeskip.
Actually I just need more Shizuru & Lardo.


That's exactly what I'm hoping. Like if she is going to be a recurring character, I hope she's an antagonist, because that's exactly how they portray her. If they try to pull a 180 with her antics it will kind of ruin it.

That's definitely one of the things I liked about this show was how fleshed out the villains were. Really to the point where they weren't even bad guys half the time. Hell, even Zetsubi was cheering them on and encouraging them to grow outside of their fights. Fuckin Matobai was actually trying to save Kogane from a life of suffering the entire time by wanting to destroy her Bubuki, even if it made him look like the bad guy. Then he realized that maybe it wasn't his decision to make.

Reoko is like a tragic villain. She did suffer at the hands of Migiwa, because Migiwa's train of thought is a very tunnel vision-y black and white. She kept Reoko locked up in a cage in her basement for 8 years, simply because in her mind it was the most logical way to save her...even if it was incredibly fucked up and not the right move. Migiwa knew that Buranki's would lead to world-wide catastrophe so she stopped all of the hearts. She had the best intentions but thought nothing of the ensuing repercussions. Very much the "ends justify the means" type, but without knowing any better. ---- At the same time, Reoko is so fucked up in the head from reviving so many times, that she now has tunnel vision when it comes to Migiwa and Buranki. So you part pity her for what she went through, part get pissed because she's messed up in the head.

Granted not all of the villains are fleshed out. The American team is kind of neutral but could be antagonists if Azuma's sister comes into play. Also makes me curious what role she'll play because they have a full team already. Is she a side orchestrator, or maybe she's actually the heart and not Epizo.

The Russian team isn't really good villains. The brother is just a straight up dickhead. Maybe they'll get more interesting because that one sister is being swayed a bit, but as of now they're lame. And the girl in wheelchair/UK team hasn't been shown yet, so we'll see there.

We also need to see what happens with Reoko's team after how fucked they were at the end there.

More war is great, since epic battles are BB's strength.
Recently finished ep12. Ya so much happened, kinda messy. But nice to see major relationships & backstories explained.
Sister pretty much confirmed S2 is her arc, so less of A-chan which some viewers find annoying should appear less I guess.

I guess this is good news.

Didn't find the first half neither good or bad, just average. But that ending cliffhanger with all of the shit hitting the fan at the same time made it basically need a sequel.

- Treasure Island sank
- Migiwa is MIA again
- Azuma's sister joined the American team and was on board with the plan to sink the island, hinting she might become an antagonist.
- Fate of Reoko and her team unknown.

Plus, now that all of the countries raped and pillaged the island to get hearts and limbs, it looks like they all have their Burankis now and it'll be all out war.

Meh I'll be skipping on this, the first season barely held my attention after the first half. Was disappointed it took such a weird turn.

Anyway, to those that will be watching . . . enjoy?

Nice. Haven't finished, but need clarification on some characters' motives. What's the mother's goal, where's sister, lots of new teams later on, Reoko's team is barely a team, and everything.

People. What the hell are you confused of? It was known that the series will be a split-cour sometime than ep.1 aired.

They need an entire revamp of the entire show. Otherwise, the only way this show will make sense is for the "Good Guys" and the "Bad" Guys to be flipped. Seriously, Azuma's mother makes for a better villain than Reoko right now. Here's hoping Azuma's sister sides with Reoko, and we'll actually see some nice sibling rivalry in ideals and stuff.

Well with this many loose ends, it needs a sequel. I hope it will have a better plot next season, this felt too much like power rangers to me. (Tbh there are a few others like that this season)

Hopefully they finally show us what happened between that timeskip in the first episode.

Mar 26, 2016 7:32 PM by ReaperCreeper

And the sister (the most amazing thing in this show with Reoko) showed up in the last episode, even so, I won't watch it, if Azuma was dead I would, but I can't handle that boy one more season...

Mar 26, 2016 6:20 PM by bittersweetlove

Expected, but not really needed imo. I'm going to watch it still, because why not, right?

Mar 26, 2016 6:07 PM by ExceedOmega

HELL YEAH !!!!!!!!!!

Mar 26, 2016 3:22 PM by AnimeFan500

nah actually its confirmed months ago that this show is a split cour 12+12 episodes = 24 episodes, a french streaming site confirmed that

and that key visual its Azuma's sister!

So lately it seems like there has been a trend of mediocre story and selling animes getting sequels...Why? Can't you just make it 2-cour?

Mar 26, 2016 1:40 PM by KaoruMatsuoka

The first season wasn't so bad. In fact, like someone already said the action sequences were quite good, same goes for the CGI. And i agree this sequel will probably be about Azuma's twin sister who disappeard after the first episode. So i will watch it but mostly out of curiosity tbh.

Mar 26, 2016 1:33 PM by vnusia

Of all the anime out there this one is geting a second season. I'm disappointed and won't watch it.

Mar 26, 2016 11:46 AM by Eulenspiegel

Mar 26, 2016 10:18 AM by ultravigo

This comes as no surprise, considering the series was gonna be 24 episodes.
