Hello everyone!~ Hope you guys had a great weekend at AX. I know I did~ Now dealing with post con syndrome and sleep depreivision~ Whee!! This week, we’re going to dive straight into A’s aka the second season of the Nanoha series.
INTRODUCTION: The second season follows Nanoha and Fate, two years after their final battle. Both living a happy loving life with their families. However this drastically changes when a group who calls themselves the Belkan Knights. From there, Nanoha and Fate go through a drastic change in order to help save their world from eternal darkness. Who is this new girl called Hayate? Watch to find out~
STAR RATING: 4 / 5 Stars
PROS: The story is a great sequel, it did not outshine or even sully the name. A’s includes a new character nicely. Hayate and co. does not come in and take over. They simply become a main part of the story and adds to the story’s development. However, this time, neither Nanoha nor Fate undergo character development. The ANTAGONISTS undergo them. Suddenly you see the antagonists become people you will soon come to like and enjoy.
CONS: Some episodes were very wordy. They did bring out some good quality of a background story, but they should really not spend an entirety of an episode explaining it. There really aren’t much bad qualities to the anime.
Overall, the good qualities dominated over the bad. This is a great starter anime for people who just got into watching anime. There is a mix of genres: Magical girl, fantasy, action, adventure, and definitely slice of life. Hope you guys have fun watching this anime as much as I did~
New updates next week!~ Hint at next week’s post: Fairies and Royalty 🙂
See you next week!
