Almost a year later, I've finally decided to finish the second season.
Story wise is probably one of the slowest I've ever seen. And here I thought season 1 was slow but this easily takes the cake with Sawako's and Kazehaya's confession scene being put off for 9 full episodes. The long and dragging story is what really hurts this show. While the show really does take off from episode 10 onwards, it really took too long to keep my interest even with ending on a high note.
Animation and art was even more gorgeous than that of the first season. Fantastic quality by I.G. It's a shame they didn't manage to keep this up with a number of their other titles this past year though.
Music also returned stronger due to the higher tension and larger amount of drama scenes. Nothing to say about seiyuu since they remained the same.
Enjoyment? There's a reason why I stopped watching this about 2/3 of the way through before finishing this. It's a beautiful show but this really should have just been tacked on at the end of season 1 or spun off as an OVA instead of creating a whole new season for it.
Overall, it's still one of the best shoujo titles out there but didn't live up to expectations that season 1 left off with sadly.Preliminary Score: 8/10
Final Score: 8/10
