Haganai’s upcoming second season has received a PV showing off the slice of life harem action to anticipate – albeit with some definite differences in comparison to the first run, particularly in terms of appearance.
Watching the video, it’s immediately noticeable that the characters have changed in their looks, and to multiple degrees at that – their choice of fashion has altered slightly, the artwork has also become more refined, and there’s some other general revisions when it comes to the artistic technique employed throughout the presentation of the animation, although it’s all very minor in spite of being rather prevalent. Essentially, the art has been brought up a notch overall – fitting for a loved series entering its second coming.
Now as one will also see, the series looks classier than before in its delivery of character targeted gags and similar – Yozora ridicules the meat factory, all the while, do take note of the faces, both familiar and otherwise, trotting around beyond the window. It seems more elaborately schemed – versus the sporadic mess of nonsense the first season would output instead.
Although the video still has more to show, the PV shifts into scenes offering a hint of nopan, amongst some more ridiculous comedic incidents – looking much more reminiscent to the first season with that, yet there remains a distinctive barrier between the two. This second season still feels to have a peculiar sense of eloquence to it, perhaps as result of the visuals, alongside the aspect of “growing up”, which makes it feel more tame in comparison to the first run.
Then again, this is all merely going based off the PV – and one will, of course, have to wait and see.
Premiering winter season, January 2013, this is one of the more shining jewels of series to await.
