Second season of Tsugumomo.
Oh yeah, Tsugumomo! I recently watched this in preparation for this season and the first season surprised me a lot. It was a really fun mish mash of ecchi, comedy and action, featuring enjoyable characters and a really solid production. It wasn’t anything mindblowing but it was a fun time nonetheless.
Now, after three years and a succesful crowdfund of an uncensored OVA the second season is here, and it is just more Tsugumomo.
Is there anything different from the first season? Well for one, the production values are downgraded. The first season had a vibrant color palet with suprisingly good action scenes that would impress even the best of action shows. This second season however the color scheme has become more dull and the action scenes are more what you would expect out of B-tier action show. The production values are far from bad, but it definitely has been downgraded.
One thing that has improved is the story. The first season had a story but it more so focused on the action, comedy and ecchi scenes. This season so far already showed some interesting lore, background stories and potential future villains. There has been more thought put into the side-characters and their motivations and the anime even has fun with itself by referencing to earlier episodes (which is rare for these kinds of shows).
Other then that, it’s just more Tsugumomo. It’s the same highschool comedy with decent action and lots of ecchi as it was in the first season. If you like the first season of Tsugumomo, you will like the second season.
