    MARCH COMES IN LIKE A LION – SEASON 2
    [​IMG]

    Genre: drama, slice of life
    Studio: Shaft
    Director: Akiyuki Shinbou
    Writer: Chika Umino (manga) Yukito Kizawa (series composition and script writing)


    This is my most anticipated anime of 2017. I am still hype as all hell for this new season. The first season of March Comes in Like a Lion, in my opinion, was absolute perfection with the only flaw being that it didn’t actually end. Though the fact that this second season was announced right off the bat of the first season finale kind of made up for that.

    I honestly cannot wait to get re-acquainted with this fantastic cast of wonderful, complex and deeply human characters and experience the next chapter in their incredible journey of self-discovery. I also cannot wait to see more of that phenomenal visual style you get when you combine the already great artwork of Chika Umino with the visual genius of Akiyuki Shinbou.

    The only part that I’m sure we will not be seeing this season either is the ending to the story since the manga is at 12 volumes and still going while the first season in al its 22 episodes didn’t actually make it past volume 5. So the fact that this season will not have a rewarding conclusion either isn’t so much a possibility but rather a certainty.

    On the other hand, though, this is Studio Shaft doing it and they have a tendency to expand their shows quite considerably if it’s a big hit which this show certainly is in Japan. So with the Monogatari franchise now finished they might look to this series to turn into their next long-running cash cow. I would for one would certainly love for that to happen.


    March Comes in Like a Lion is licensed by Crunchyroll and can be streamed legally on their website.

    Do we have a complete set of month themed anime? March comes in like a lion, Your lie in April, what else?

    EDIT: So on a whim I decided to look it up..

    Christmas in January
    February?
    March comes in like a Lion
    Your lie in April
    Devil May Cry (y)
    June?
    July?
    Symphony in August
    9-Gatsu/September
    Saint October
    November?
    Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky

    So we're missing February, June, July, and November. Once the set is complete, I'm going to have to do a review on them all.. Along with my review on all the "Re" anime out there.

    Holy shit this episode...may have been the best of the series. Rei is still being developed as a character as well along with the Sisters and it's fucking brilliant.

    "I want to find them, and rip them limb from limb." HOLY SHIT REI!!!! I freaking loved that part. I kinda wished he realized him just being there would be a huge help for Hina.

    I liked the whole bit about the ladybug flying towards the sun as well.

    Next weeks episode should be interesting. Mainly because Rei says "Well I'm a guy..." Then what sounds like Hina saying "I' a terrible person." (or something seductive along those lines lol)
