Well I sure wasn't expecting this. The first "Hyakka Ryouran" was decent at best, and I can't say I enjoyed it as much as I should have (I actually like fan service anime, as long as its not TOO much), I never thought that it'd be popular enough to actually receive a second season. Surprisingly, I thought that the second season was a lot better, despite my usual thought process about sequels being more or less the same as their predecessors. They introduced more characters (most of which are pretty likable and awesome), they f**ked around much more than they did in the first season, which was one of the anime's strengths in my opinion. Somehow, they also managed to make the final few episodes pretty epic, closing out the series in a somewhat satisfying way, unlike how season 1 concluded.

The main cast as maids~

Season 1 had an amazing opening song that was by Faylan, unfortunately season 2's opening song wasn't by her. However, "AI DO" by Miyuki Hashimoto sounds just as good as "Last Vision For Last", and does a fantastic job of fitting right into the feel of the anime. It feels badass as f**k, fitting for a samurai themed anime, though like I mentioned in my review of the first season, it didn't feel right as the anime is more comedy/fan service than action. The ending song "Kekka, Guuzen De Gozasourou", sounds pretty upbeat, and is honestly one of the better ending songs out there.

Rating: 7.5/10

The overall premise is more or less the same, but I feel that season 2 had a little bit more "life" to it more than season 1 had. Season 2 felt a lot more "fun" with its newly introduced characters (Keiji was a blast) and somewhat more easygoing story line. For those who watched season 1, there's still a good amount of fan service, though it seems to have been toned down a fair bit (except for some more tentacle rape episodes and Sasuke, a new character, who's basically a skimpier Felicia). Some villains have been introduced, but to be fair they just serve to be petty competitors with our samurai heroines than being true, big bad guys. Its an eventful season, that's for sure, and honestly that's what kept me interested the whole way.

Meet the villains!
Following the events of season 1, a tired Muneakira returns to the Yagyuu dojo after a long journey of self realization. Being alone for his entire absence from the dojo, he feels happy to be reunited with the his friends (or in other words, his "bitches"), but upon reaching home he realized that something has happened to the dojo. Due to financial issues, the dojo has been transformed into a maid cafe, and the tokugawa faction has been trying to raise money for everything that has happened. Since maid cafes were all the rage, that was the only choice they had left. Muneakira joins in as a butler, until the dark samurai appeared to crash the party. Apparently they were looking for a strong opponent, and a huge fight soon ensued, with Muneakira's side sustaining huge loses. Jubei lost her ability to become a master samurai, and Muneakira had a curse placed under him. Will our heroes pick themselves up?

That's it for this season. I didn't expect a season 2 out of the "Hyakka Ryouran" franchise, and after the ending of this particular season, I won't expect a 3rd one either, unless they pull something off again, of course. I enjoyed "Samurai Bride" more than "Samurai Girls", and its definitely worth your time if you liked "Samurai Girls". If girls with swords in the old Japanese era are your thing, then you might find yourself immersed in this series.
