Yeah, Leo and Eclair's clothes exploded pretty subtly in episode 2.

I mean, I like the show, but it's more a juicy hamburger than a perfectly prepared steak.

Dog Days does such a great job of setting up what an awesome thing everyone has going for them that I'm sure I'll immediately buy into the conflict as soon as something comes along to threaten it. If Becky's words are any hint, though, it sounds like the real threat to the happy status quo is just the trio of friends growing up or growing apart.

Nanami and Becky finally give us a chance to hear the viewer perspective on Cinque's unusual relationships with Biscotti's finest. Their attempt to keep straight faces as Ricotta described why she loves the hero was pretty priceless. Also, last season, I seem to recall Cinque being given the "huge brass balls" award for playing fetch with the sovereign ruler of a warrior nation. Now she's running in circles at the front door to the castle going "Walk?? Time for walk??"

LOL at Becky's passing insinuation that the Hero Harem might include Gaul.

And hooray for Eclair still getting a respectable amount of screen time given the size of the cast. Her unconscious tail-wagging in anticipation of her camping trip with Cinque was too mu- hnnnggghh.

How? Just... how? It's the same. The stripperific fights were there in the first season. Eclair got stripped right in front of the cameras in the second episode. How is that "more innocent" than the stripfights we've seen here?

But in earnest it did take him up to ep 5 to gain everything and its hinted in series 1 that a certain ability to gather all the magic as well as endurance to do and maintain abilities. That’s something Cinque built up during his first visit there that should not be readily available to new heroes that have spent less than 1 - 2 hours in this new world.
And, again, the entire series of events from episode 1 to 5 all happened on the same day, and none the non-combat time in between fights was spend practicing. The time difference between Nanami and Cinque's learning is outright neglectible. And I will note on this point that, just like Nanami, Cinque learned everything he did just by watching someone else do it. Once.

Difference: Zero.

Noticed something interesting in the show's ED I thought I'd bring up.

I looked back quite a few pages and didnt see it brought up before.

Did anyone else noticed the 2-tailed cat (nekomata?) run by in the ED? I don't think this person has been introduced yet, or my memory of last season is failing me.

I noticed she didnt show up on the first run through of the characters during the ED, where u could see everyone:

but then she shows up at the front of the pack, blacked out with everyone else:

Not to mention she's grouped with those little creatures, who I believe in the first season, were refered to as small protective gods.

Yeah true enough. I don't think Eclair especially would suggest that Cinque's first visit to their world was anything subtle . Again props to Leo for having the cameras ready and waiting for that clothing explosion.

Whoa, sneaky. I can't think of any two-tailed characters who have shown up thus far, although it sounds like the sort of critter that would show up around Yuki, given both what she is and the creatures she takes care of. If so, it might show up at the training camp next episode.

I'm dying for some Eclair x Cinque moments, they just so awesome together, but that's just me.

True, she's a heroine that you can definitely warm up to overtime Plus she's cool and boss, so no complaint from me.

I didn't see this get mentioned, but... Has it crossed anyone's mind that we have a country of squirrels that fly yet none of them are modeled after a flying squirrel?

That would require physical traits beyond the ears and tail, though, and that doesn't seem to be the way this show works.

A lack of Brioche action makes me sad. On one had I like Yuki and Brioche, on the other, they are at least 150 years old... pretty good looking for such old...ack..
(get sliced and diced)

Wonder what happened to that little fox they rescued back in S1, didn't see it when they visited Yuki and Brioche...

Oh look I was not wrong when I said that Becky was going to own Cinque, thanks to the studio for proving me right. This anime keeps being a disappointment. If I only knew that season 2 was going to be this bad from the start I would have made a wish to never let it happen.

Well that's a narrow viewpoint. We've already had this argument, so I'm not going to bother with it again.

Anyway, it's up to you how long you feel like torturing yourself by continuing to watch something you obviously don't like. You can stop any time.
