3D Kanojo: Real Girl 2nd Season Introduction and Story
Hikari Tsutsui is an awkward high schooler that finds solace in the world of 2D. Every day he finds himself engrossed in video games and anime as he tries to ignore the real world. Things change when he meets his classmate Iroha Igarashi, who is his polar opposite in every way possible. After the two are forced to clean the pool together, they start an awkward and unexpected relationship.
3D Kanojo: Real Girl 2nd Season picks up where the first one left off. With Tsutsui and Iroha growing closer together, things start to take a turn for the worst when Iroha's behavior begins to change. Tsutsui soon learns of the secret Iroha has been hiding and the two are forced to face tough choices as they prepare for their uncertain future.
1. The Romance
If you like romance, 3D Kanojo: Real Girl 2nd Season has more than enough to keep you entertained. The romance is the primary focus of the anime and we get to see it comes in all different styles. With three sets of couples and some other romantic interests, there are plenty of romances to enjoy through the anime. Most of the romances don't get nearly as much screen time or focus as the main one does, but all of the romance scenes are great and make the anime worth watching.
2. The Characters
With a lot of the character development done in the first season, the second season is able to go all out with the characters and make them a bit more complex than what they were in the first season. Everyone from the main characters to the side characters get a ton of great moments and development. The characters feel a lot more fleshed out in this season and even some of their negative character traits become a lot more tolerable and understandable.
3. The Ending
After a roller coaster of drama and emotions, we get a couple of episodes to end the series that tie up all of the anime's loose ends. We get to find out just what happens to the entire main cast in their post-high school years. While there is a lot of info that gets dumped into the final two episodes, and some of the characters and plotlines don't get explained really well, the satisfaction of seeing the conclusion of Iroha and Tsutsui's story more than makes up for it.
1. Forced Drama
A problem that was also prevalent in the first season, 3D Kanojo: Real Girl has quite a bit of forced drama. As every episode passes, we get more and more drama and while some of it works, a lot of it just feels off and uninspired. With the drama already surrounding Iroha and Tsutsui, we also get Iroha's illness, the relationships of their friends, and get introduced to some characters that only exist to add conflict to the story.
The anime's visuals are not necessarily bad, but they certainly are not impactful. Most of the time, the characters and backgrounds are unmemorable and lackluster. The whole anime just feels plain to the point where it starts to detract from some of the best moments of the series.
3D Kanojo: Real Girl 2nd Season is a real mixed bag. If you enjoyed the romantic escapades of the first season, you will thoroughly enjoy what the second season has to over. However, if some of the overdramatic moments of the first season turned you off, you may have a tough time getting through this one. What did you think of 3D Kanojo: Real Girl 2nd Season?
