TDMoé – Haikyu Season 2 Anime Blu-ray review

Studio: Production I.G.
Publisher: Sentai Filmworks
Distributor: Section23 Films
Release Date: April 17th, 2018

Tired of all the cutesy anime coming out lately? Was the last series I showed you not your style? You like shounen-style action, but don’t want to deal with unicorns getting ripped in half, blades going into human bodies, and stuff like that? Want a sports anime with the taste of realism? Join the Karasuno High School Volleyball Team today and pick up a copy of Haikyu!’s second season. Jam-packed with new characters, returning storylines, and the same intense comedy from the first season, Sentai Filmworks has brought this gem over to the west. Many thanks to Section23 for the review unit!

All eyes are on Karasuno… or at least, they aren’t being called Wingless Crows much now. After their taste of defeat at the Inner-High prelims, the team bounces back on their talons to claw into more opponents! However, the team must not forget about the most important thing… schoolwork! Not only that, but who will replace the 3rd-Year team manager Kiyoko when she must graduate soon? With the onset of their next challenges, the action only gets better in Haikyu! Season 2!

Watching Haikyu! was a blast. The second season is not too different from the first. New characters and rivalries show up with some unexpected twists. My favorite character is the new shy girl. I can’t go into detail about her, but Brittney Karbowski does an excellent job in the English dub of brining out her charm. Like the last release, the second season has an excellent dub that really brings out the excitement of the show in a rather interesting way and kept me watching.

Overall, the intense action returns; the rivalries get even hotter; and the character roster grows by quite a bit. The disc art is nice, and the visual quality of the discs makes me love the show even more (looks way better than it does streaming on CR). With a retail price of $99.98 USD on the Sentai Filmworks store, watching ‘The Return of the Tiny Giant’ will make you want to share it with your friends. The second season only gets better and better as you watch!

Lolinia gives Haikyu! Second Season Collection a Drastik Moé Measure of 8.1 out of 10.0 (81).
