Reason for special review:
There were several things that happened in this episode that made me decide to give it a special review. First, there is much improvements in this episode in terms of the story and plot advancement. It was quite a ride the entire episode and I think the story is only just starting to get heated up. Not only did it go into main details about character’s actions and their thinking, it also went pretty deep into character development as well as containing action. Second, the story-telling method of this episode is still really lacking as compared to what they can actually do. It is really dry and could be done much better. Lastly, there were several big moments in this episode that pretty much decided on where the story is going. There is a big mystery left behind by what was presented and there’s a high possibility that they will go back on it and resolve it in later episodes.
Because of these changes to the anime, I feel that although the second episode could have been much better, it still left much to be desired and thus needs to improve more. I’m moving the score from a very shaky 8 to a 7.25-7.75 for now, until it gets better. I am still keeping my hopes up for better episodes and will not drop this anime just yet.
