Animation Quality: 8/10 If BD release improves on this, then it ups to 9 or 10 depending on how good they make it.
Voice Actors: 9/10 I don’t know much about voiceacting in Japan but same voice actors, same awesomeness, I ain’t mad
Script: 9/10 Script was awesome, pacing was done well, ending didn't feel contrived even though it was a cliffhanger, Sasuga
Soundtrack: 10/10 Downloaded OST of both seasons, marathoning it on one playlist, awesome
Enjoyment: 10/10 Every bit of it felt well done, a few complaints that can be made but won’t since it’s just nitpicking
Overall, awesome stuff. If studio Silver Link keeps this quality up or even make it better with 2wei Herz and Dr3i, then this is an adaptation of an awesome spin-off well done.
When all the DVDs are out, I’ll either buy them all in one go or torrent the BD. Then I’ll marathon the heck out of them.

As a manga reader with this series being one of my favourite I'll start with some nitpicking
Firstly, the comedy. The humour in the manga is very snappy and sharp, here it's quite draggy in order to fill up the time quota. The one in the nurse office is the biggest offender of them all, making one simple joke overstay its welcome. I'm not sure how other people perceive them, but I feel like whoever is in charge here doesn't have a funny bone in him. It just feels lackluster.
Secondly, the pacing. I know that this is a business decision to split this 27 chapter series into 2x10 episode series, but man this show as a lot of new stuff put in to pad it up. I don't necessarily hate them in their own, but their existence just make things really draggy.
Lastly, the immediate high bar for the kiss scene in ep2. Let's just say that it takes away the best special moment in the 2nd half of 2wei. Given the backlash around the internet I'm not sure if this is a good decision.
Now onto the positives.
Kuro is awesome, absolutely awesome. I love her while in the manga, and Chiwa Saito absolutely nailed this character. Cute, Brash, Confident, and Sexy (no i'm not a lolicon). Kuro is the biggest reason why I love this franchise, and the anime version portrays her brilliantly from every angle (again I'm NOT a lolicon). She's a fantastic addition to the story, and there's just something great to see the archer style fighting more in 2wei.
which brings me to the next point. We all know by ep6 in the first season that Silver Link can do kickass action moments, and this series didn't drop the ball. Plenty of kinetic camera shots, and just lots of dynamic choreograph in the fight sequences, adding a lot more to what's already a great action manga. I mentioned previously that I don't like the draggy nature, but if the additional materials are of those mouthwatering combat scenes then I'm loving every bit of it.
My biggest letdown though is how the Bazette hype has to be at the end of this series, and the biggest moment be left until the very last episode, but man that exact moment is just perfect.
It's hard to judge this show objectively for me because I just love this manga so much so I automatically love this show by default even with all those minor nitpicking. Relatively this anime didn't exactly reach my expectation, but those were sky high to begin with. This is not the perfect adaptation I was hoping for, but my love for the manga was so great that I enjoy it so much.
