I haven't seen season one, but people said I should watch it first and that things will make a lot more with sense. I have no time so I have no chance to do so.
Even so, the second season is so beautiful. They awake the romance a whole lot, you will certainly love it. If you don’t cut my fingers. Okay, so now I'll tell you a little about the anime.
I heard that it picks the story up right where the renowned first season ended. The next day, actually. They really turn it up a nick and it is a lot faster paced. They encompassed a lot more in the second season (which is beneficial to me lol) romance will really pleasure you and if you are a cry-baby, you probably will. I unquestionably did. And in the end everything is worth it.
The story was based on a series of video games released in Japan. It focuses on the characters, with multiple parallels demonstrating many fundamentals of human nature. The story centers on an ancient family line of ladies known as the Tamayori Pirncesses. The main character, named Tamaki Kasuga, is the youngest in line who is approaching of age as she lands at her grandmother's estate and must learn what it is to be like a Tamayori Princess. Tamayori Princess's drive is to be the protector and keeper of an ancient and mysterious power closed within the land known as the Onikirimaru. The Princess has guardians who are on oath to protect here in the form of transcendentally powered males from a celebrated and loyal clan. The enemies of the story belong to a group recognized as the Logos, a secret society bent on freeing the Onikirimaru, which is prophesied to bring about the world's end. Tamaki, alongside her guardians, like any other hero, must stop the Logos ahead of time, before it's too late.
I sit here thinking why Hiiro no Kakera is so actual at drawing the audience in, influencing us to watch the next episode, and I realize an important method employed by very few anime that sparkles through in Hiiro no Kakera. On the surface Hiiro no Kakera appears to be of stock value, with a dime a dozen transcribed all over it. The art is thriving done, like most fresh anime, the scenery, and story, though interesting, are somewhat basic in their presentation, and if you simply watch 1 episode it is easy to see why several would dismiss the characters as well.
Those who nod off the first impressions and stick around for a bit, will find habit setting in as you must watch the next episode ending in a complete and nourishing resolution often lacking in many anime. This is able by what I like to call incremental development. The characters, the story, the relationships, all are carefully settled as though you are watching a rose bloom before your very eyes without losing one beat. The characters and their relationships develop at a deliberately slower pace in order to outdo real relationships and secluded growth and change. This forms a significant bond between the audience and the characters that repetitively grows stronger.
This theme of expansion is consistent in the story as well as the creators purposely pull a few hits early on in order to end with a spell and a nourishing bang. The music, voice acting, and sound course are all superb. The opening track of the first season is one of my own favorite opening songs in current memory, not only for its aesthetics, but because of how well it thematically turns with the anime. The voice actors brings the characters to life in tremendous fashion, which is critical to any character based story. The acting is unswerving and believable with robust outings from virtually every major character.
On a side note, another modern anime that executes incremental expansion extremely well is Sword Art Online. Especially concerning the relationships of the characters.
The tone of Hiiro no Kakera is of a muted nature with some light wit peppered in throughout. But, for the greatest part it has its somber face on. It is dramatic and powerful when it needs to be and calm and quiet in mostly the right places. This sets up a pacing structure that is performed very well. It isn't perfect by any means but it is reliable and carefully consummate. Overall, it was a great anime. I hope this gets a third season!
