Da Capo II S.S. 01

Da Capo II S.S

Okay, I’m signing on for another trip through Hatsunejima again. Yeah, that scene kinda sold me on to it.

D.C.II S.S starts not long after the end of the first season. Things are getting a bit busy in preparation for the upcoming Christmas celebrations, and Yoshiyuki’s class chooses to do a ningyogeki thanks to Anzu’s suggestion. Naturally, Yoshiyuki and Koko get chosen to play the main roles.

However, not all is right with Hatsunejima, and the magical sakura tree seems to be malfunctioning. Sakura-san is of course well aware of it, and Oto-nee also feels it too. Mysterious cases also seem to have been happening around the island as well, most likely connected to the sakura tree.

Mmm… so it looks like they’ll be dealing with the main Otome route in the second season. Despite the disappointing first season, I guess I like the way that Da Capo II is being handled enough to continue on for a second season. Here’s to hoping that Otome will get her deserved airtime this season. I like what they’ve shown of her so far.

Looking back now, it was really surprising that the first season didn’t show the Asakura sisters so much, considering they’re the pivotal characters of the franchise.

Oh, I have to give mention to the nice ED, with the flashback shots of Yoshiyuki meeting the Asakura sisters for the first time and progressing throughout their growth together. I see that Yoshiyuki sure has got his hands full with the sisters and Sakura over the years. I guess that’s what it’s like to have so many females as your family :P.

    I don’t think I’ll ever be able to figure out what the hell FEEL was thinking with the first season of D.C. II–next to zero screentime Asakura-shimai, and even fan favorite Nanaka got sidelined for the most part. It’s like they were deliberately focusing on the least popular characters from the game just to piss everyone off, like a mad scheme by the director to short FEEL stock or something. Koko fans can’t even be happy, since she got lots of screentime but lost in the end.

    Oh well, at least D.C. II SS looks like it’ll be delivering the dramatic storyline I was hoping for from the first season–now I just have to hope the fansubbers weren’t so disgusted by season one that someone will sub season two.

    This is one show that I kinda regret being spoiled about, in regards with the ending…

    I’ll just have to enjoy the scenes. And Nanaka. :D

    I hope this season will be better than the 1st one..
    The 1st one was..so..so…
    I can’t believe that they didn’t focus much on Yume and Otome in the 1st one..
    And poor Nanaka..
