Hiiro no Kakera Dai Ni Shou

Hiiro no Kakera Dai Ni Shou- 13 episodes

It's the second half of the animated version of Hiiro no Kakera otome. The past of almost all the characters are unraveled and it all boils down to Tamaki and Takuma's past lives, their present dilemma and the fate of the world. The pacing again was too slow and I realized they could have done a bit better if they compressed it to perhaps to just one season. I was also looking forward for more of their beast forms but alas they only appeared in critical moments. For some reason, I couldn't connect to any of the bishies. The first season was so boring and the second was another opportunity wasted. I'll just keep it short then and end it here.

Happy Birthday Capricorn

Starry Sky wallie is up until Jan. 18.
