Medaka Box’s second season starts October – and to incite last minute hype, a PV has just been released boasting the standard ecstatic attitude and excessive excitement which generally defines the series.
The video below contains some forceful music, and restless visuals – with a very strong sense of impact overall. There’s quite a sense of dramatics and exaggeration present in seemingly everything from the aesthetics to the actions of the characters – making it likely that if one wasn’t fond of the first season, this second isn’t going to spark anything either. On the contrary however, those who did admire the first run are likely urinating on themselves from anxiety.
Throughout the opening half of the PV, there’s predominantly no more than some facial close-ups – a second of screentime individually spanning across all of the characters. Although when entering the second segment of the preview, the ridiculousness kicks in quite immediately – and is impossible to miss, particularly since it seems to begin with the sight of the heroine being pummeled by colossal iron spheres dressed in spikes.
At least whatever occurs, one can’t knock it down on the premise of holding back – as this series is seemingly indeed going all out in every respect, for better or worse.
Nisio Isin’s madness is merely two weeks or so from firing up once more, for the few who actually found themselves immersed in this grandiose work – the rest of us are likely still awaiting more monogatari to come.
