Second seasons of anime scare me, same with movies. You go in thinking that it should be good or better than the original only to be disappointed in the end. Well I am glad to say that I was not disappointed at all with this second season.
So let’s get to the meat and potatoes of this so I can get some peace and quiet around here.

It comes to no surprise that I would be taking a look at Sora no Otoshimono Forte seeing as I reviewed the first season. After reviewing the first season, I became a big fan of the series. It was a series that I missed the first time around with great heartache and despair, knowing that I would fall in love with it instantly. So when the time came around for me to be able to review it, I jumped on it like a Tomoki on a pair of woman’s panties. Then it happened again once the second season came down the pike and let me tell you, it was just as enjoyable as the first.
We start off right where we left off in season one. Everything is all fine and dandy at the Sakurai household. Except that the Synapse are still not happy with what’s been happening down on earth. So the Synapse sends some more angels down to take care of Ikaros since the others have failed. This time around we have the even more buxom Astraea. A close combat Angeliod that is clumsy and dumb as a brick. Typical. Its fine for what I like, but I digress. The other is called Chaos, second generation loli Angeliod. Don’t let the small size fool you. She packs a staggering high level of combat skills with an insane killer instinct.
The series doesn’t let up at all on the pervert comedy front. It stays right on target with its outrageous games, interesting camera angles, and normal gags. On the writing side of things, it is hilarious in English. With so many puns coming at you constantly it’s amazing that the cast could get through it. It kept me laughing the whole time. Mainly because I have a sick sense of humor too, so that always helps me through most of the anime I tend to watch.
Moving along, the cast returns to reprise all of their roles to a T. It’s like they never really left the booth from the first one. Everyone hits their marks and delivers their jokes spot on. I don’t even think I could read the subtitle even that well to make it that funny. Just as the first one, Greg Ayres is the main centerpiece as Tomoki. Really, I can’t think of anyone that could do a better job in this series then him. Bravo my good sir.
Everything still looks nice and bright on the DVD I was sent to review. Just like the first series did. None of the quality in the production was turned down either. AIC does a wonderful job again keeping its standards up on this season. Seeing as their track record speaks for itself. Actually, I think they are my favorite animation company now that I have relooked at what they have done for the past 30 years.
I’m really glad that I have gotten the chance to review this series. It’s completely up my ally in what I like to see in harem anime. Plenty of fanservice, but has a lot of heart. Along with that, it has a good story that drives everything forward. It keeps everything in balance while all the hilarity is going on. Can this stand on its own if you haven’t watched the first one? I would wager not as much as it should. It would be a bit confusing for anyone starting from here. Good thing that the first one is a bit better then the second. So go and check it out and you’ll understand why I’m in love with this series.
8.0 – Great. A perfectly executed film or series that defines its genre without resorting to cliches.
