Moyashimon Returns: Still Amusing, Still No Closure

Moyashimon is one of those series that you try to convince your friends to watch it, but when they ask you what's so great about it, you really couldn't think of exactly why. Come to think of it, it's not that there's a single exceptional element, it's the sum of all that is in this anime made it great. Light and somewhat whacky comedy packed with lots, I mean lots, of knowledge about fermentation. In spirit, it feels very much like Nodame Cantabile series.

Without know the story of the first season, you'd probably be mostly lost. If you haven't seen the original series, I'd highly recommend you to watch the first season before even start this one.

Final Scoreboard:

Drama: 89 (Whackily dramatic)
Comedy: 94 (Whacky)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 86 (Weird)
Sound/Music: 89 (Like the music)
Character: 90 (Rather intriguing)
Plot: 83 (Somewhat chaotic)
Ending: -- (To Be Continued)

Re-watch value: 60 - Not really, but might still be amusing

Overall: 88 - StillAmusing

Recommendation: If you have seen and liked first season, you probably want to see what's happening next, since the original series had a somewhat weak ending (not that this one had a much better one...)
