Still think the weakest part of this series is the naming for it. Even I was hesitant to watch the first season due to such a name. But the second season got off to a good start. Went about re-introducing the main characters and giving insights into the kind of people they are. Naturally itâ€™s better to just watch the first season but this kind of thing is expected in a sequel. The duo of Birdy and Senkawa are back and has to deal with a fairly strange situation. A connection from the Runka incident last season has them hunting down some more hidden criminals. Of course itâ€™s more complicated than that with one of them being murdered before Birdy could show up. Someone like that is bound to face off against Birdy at some point.
There were some funny moments in this episode as well. Couldnâ€™t help laughing a bit at Senkawa appearing to talk to himself and look a bit crazy in the club meeting. Of course he was explaining things to Birdy but its still pretty fun to watch. Another good moment was with Birdy and her need to play the role of Shion. With the amount of food she has to eat there is no option but to play along with that old woman and let herself be used. At any rate an investigator canâ€™t afford to alienate herself from one of the best informants around. Also found it a bit funny to see the antagonist from last season apparently working for the old woman. Didnâ€™t say anything so have to think sheâ€™s gotten chewed out enough that speaking up isnâ€™t an option.
Looking forward to seeing how the childhood friend of Birdy will play into this. No way the guy is showing up to just say hi and vanish. Will likely play a role as an antagonist, but for now will just have to speculate. Animation of course isnâ€™t the strength here, but hopefully the story is enjoyable.
