[Ended] Spice and Wolf II: Continue on with the Greatness

Spice and Wold II is quite an exceptional anime. Many people would even consider it to be better than the original series. In a sense, it is. However, what the first series brought us that the second series couldn't bring is the new and refreshing feeling of an unique new anime that we've never seen before. And that was one of the major elements made the original series so great in the first place.

Having said all that, I still think this is still one great anime series. It kept all the right things from the first series, it also added some more interesting elements. Although the plot is mostly credited to the book, the execution and screen play of the anime is still quite exceptional.

One thing I wasn't quite fond of is the ending. In my opinion, it's a bit too abrupt.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 91 (All about dramas)
Comedy: 88 (Pretty good for what it has)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 96 (Lovely)
Sound/Music: 85 (I like the first series much better)
Character: 94 (Great depth in character development)
Plot: 88 (Somewhat moving)
Ending: 80 (Bit too abrupt)

Re-watch value: 70 (Loses the surprise factor, but would still be interesting)

Overall: 90 - Continue on with the Greatness

Recommendation: If you liked the first series, you're in for a treat. This second series has most goodness of the first series plus something more.
