I would agree with relentless - watching the end of season 1 would go a long way in understanding some elements of the story. End of DCSS is not really required, though would help to show the state of relationships some characters had between them, but not nearly as required as end of season 1. (Sakura, Nemu and Junichi being the important characters in both seasons, Aisia in SS, but i don't expect her to have any importance related to Da Capo II plot).

For me, D.C. was quite enjoyable... Da Crappo S.S. was some sort of offence, with the stupid objective of the whole season: To Love Yunichi...

But this one alrealy has kicked my balls. The plainest characters EVER! to me all of'em looks like those finger people in Digi-charat. Also, the characters design remindsme of those cheap hentai mangas... the music was like... there was music to begin with? never mind, I don't care that much.

Also, I was like... "who was the main char again? oh! you!... no, wait, that is just another character of the background". Now the word "plain" have a new concept.

Uhm... lemme see... not really. That character isn't that gool to remain in the show... so let her die of suffer some sort of accident... maybe if she gets a hook instead of hand or who knows... rebuilded has a human weapon may be more interesting...

...ok, never mind the human weapon, I hated saikano.

Just because they are not a good character, doesn't mean they deserve to die. Personally if that's how you react to every "bad" character, that you hope they'd die, well i fear for the japanese anime industry should they take up on your suggestion.

Personally I hope for the best for Kokko, I much prefer a relationship that is built up overtime then the wham bam I fell in love at first sight thing. Hence I was a big supporter of Nemu in S1 (I just didn't like the whole setup of their relationship in SS so preferred Kotori more). Of course the relationship has to be two sided, which I think might not be the case here .

I see no reason why people can't go from childhood friends, to realising that they love each other more then that (DC S1 is a good example) and tbh at least they will know what they are getting into.

Personally I think that Koko's relationship will fail, and the reason why it seems her wish is supported by Miss one sided love herself; Sakura, who still hasn't gotten over her thing of Junichi (or I guess she would be normal aged)

hmm this is kinda off topic but i was wondering if you actually need to watch the earlier prequels in order to understand Da Capo II since i'm considering watching it

Just read back the end of the last page for some answers. I think the consensus is basically you don't need to, but some aspects would definitely make more sense if you do.

You don't have to but like relentless says, some aspects such as the Sakura tree, Sakura ect would make a little more sense in DCII.. Offcourse in the end it just comes down to the people who have watched the previous Da Capo anime to have more of an advantage as to guessing what's happening here... An example would be:

Spoiler for Spoiler for those who haven't watched the original Da Capo anime:


All in all i feel by watching the previous DC you would end up enjoying DCII more as the DC anime would provide a little background to the premise of DCII..

Anyway like relentless says it's a matter of choice and i'm sure some of the questions that would come up if you hadn't watched DC will still be answered eventually, just that the original watchers would have the upper hand right up until near the end of the anime.

I must still be in my honeymoon period with the new shows: I liked ep2. It was starting to veer into banality until Minatsu appeared. I loved how Aoki Sayaka (Kyon's imouto, Sia in Shuffle) played her:
Spoiler for ep2:
My way of guessing which girl is going to win is to look at the order they are listed in in the cast credits on the website: Otome, Yume, Nanako, Koko, Anzu, Minatsu. I don't know if my method works, but that list might at least suggest who is going to get most screen time. I enjoyed the bench scene with Yoshiyuki and Koko.

I was thinking about something like this last night, actually.
Spoiler:
Mintasu is a whole lot of fun, and I actually liked her character in the game a lot more than I thought I would. Once the anime's over, be sure to check out the summary I wrote in the game thread. I do think they nailed her character in the anime as well, so was quite pleased with that.

This is actually the same order as the game and all other official merchandise that I can recall. I guess it's sort of the "canon character order".
Spoiler for speculation:


And incidentally, in looking over my past comment, I should append...

I read that Otome was labeled as the Main lead (heroine) for this.
MAybe someone knows something we don't.

Well, they never said much of anything regarding the anime (as they were trying to keep it a surprise/secret). I'm pretty sure most were assuming Otome would end up being the main heroine because of the game (and the fact that she's also the most popular D.C. II character on most polls). We also know that the person who wrote the game scripts for Otome and Yume is working on the anime script. But I'm pretty sure that's all anyone knows at this point.

Sticking with this for now simply because I'd like to see how they plan to implement Minatsu. Is it just a girl with odd quirks or will they try to do something more? The Multi character had some interesting attributes and Chi explored some aspects of sentience.
Chachamaru in the manga Negima is often played for gags but occasionally some interesting bits of introspection happen with Chach's self-analysis.

Basically I'm interested in examinations of the "Frankenstein conundrum" ... as articulated by the Monster in the original story.

Yeah, yeah... this is Da Capo so unless they plan on making her the centerpiece of this season there's not much of that likely to happen... but sometimes even just a few minutes of fascinating stuff can make a character memorable.

If the opening sequence suggested that Minatsu plays a major role in this anime series... I don't know if they will dwell on the main stories (the old Da Capo plot about the magical unwithering sakura tree).

I'm feeling there will be a second season this early.
