General statement(tl;dr): Awesome start to a new season, has me begging for more.


So here’s my first impression:

Art: 10/10(10 being A1-pictures’s godly animations)

-A1-pictures has done it yet again with the great animation quality, artwork and overall it was an absolute feast for my eyes the entire episode. There were several scenes that actually made me go “wow” at the smooth and beautiful image.
Afterthoughts after discussing with friends: No change. If I could give this an 11 I would, since Saekano has such consistently nice animation.

Music: 9/10(10 being AnoHana or Your Lie in April I guess)

-The opening music has a similar vibe to the first season, which is a good thing as the music was really nice. The background music and sound for this one was fantastic as well and the VA was well done as usual. I welcome the return of the Harem King Matsuoka wholeheartedly.
Afterthoughts after discussing with friends: No change.

Story: 9/10(10 being Youjo Senki, Assassination Classroom or NGNL I guess, this is more subjective)

-Picking up from where season 1 left off, the friends are back at it again with their game making. In this first episode it provides some background knowledge on some of the mysteries leftover from season 1 and it was really interesting as well. It was good to see Saekano is back at it again with the constant 4th wall breaks as well as the dynamics within the circle.
Afterthoughts after discussing with friends: No change. Would be nice to be able to see a conclusion to this series this season, although the chances of that is low.

Comedy: 8/10(10 being Nichijou or KonoSuba I guess)

-Very funny so far with many 4th wall breaks and hilarious moments. Looking forward to so much more from this anime. I was really entertained by the content of this episode as well.
Afterthoughts after discussing with friends: No change. The one thing I really love about this series was its awesome, funny, and constant 4th wall breaks, and it’s nice to have it back again.

SOL:  3/10(10 being Sakurasou maybe? I have yet to watch any SOL anime so far)

-Being the first episode, it had very little SOL elements. However, there are some being presented.
Afterthoughts after discussing with friends: No changes. Let us hope for more circle action!

Special Ecchi counter 5/10(10 being boku no pico or something? IDK)

-Saekano surprisingly holding it back with the ecchi in this episode. The only ecchi and ecchi related scenes were on posters and art that appeared and as such there weren’t too much fan-service.

Afterthoughts after discussing with friends: No change. Hentais will be disappointed for this episode, but I guess much more is coming given Saekano’s nature.

Overall ~9.25 – 9.50 (Heavily recommended anime)

Afterthoughts after discussing with friends: No change. Looking forward to the enjoyments to be had from this series yet again!
