April 2008 (not so) New Anime: Da Capo II Second Season

Genres: School Drama / School Fantasy / Light Comedy
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Da Capo (There's enough of this series to have its own style)

Summary: Continuation of previous D.C.II. Looks like this time the real story of D.C.II going go occur, without any distractions.

Rating (of 5) - first impression: 4 - Looks better than first part

Recognized voice talent: Yui Horie (堀江由衣): For a while, I thought there's a familiar voice in D.C.II, but never bothered to find out. I ran cross the reference today while looking up the info on D.C.II.S.S. She is best known to me as Yoko from Inukami. Also, I just found out today, she's also the voice talent of Naru of Love Hina. Her most recent apparences also include Yuki from Vampire Knight.

Personal comments: I know there are people that hated the original Da Capo becaues it originally presented itself as comedy, and later turn into a very dark somewhat tragic drama. Well, this time, instead replay what they did with original Da Capo, they decided to produce two series instead. Most light comedies are in the first season of Da Capo II, and the second season starts off actually quite heavy hearted. So you don't need to wory about them doing a bait and switch again.
