Unfortunatly this continues in the same vain as the first part ends, dragging it's feet. Although the look, feel and characters are the same, which is definitly a plus, there is not a single adition to the plot. It is good, just massively inferior to part 1. They should've replaced the last couple of episodes of part 1 with the last couple of part 2 and called it a 12 episode show then everyone would be happy. This could've been one of the greatest animes made. Shame. I'd still recommend it, but just don't expect to be as excited with the 2nd part.
