3.0 out of 5 stars Whaaaaaaat??? 20 July 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What started out as an absolutely fantastic series has in my opinion completely crumbled to being nothing more than an average anime that probably won't be rewatched anytime soon.
I just finished watching this set moments before starting this review and I really felt a bit let down by this second half.

I mentioned in my review for part 1 of this series (I gave 5 stars to part 1) that if I had to pick an issue it was that the main story had made little proggress over the first 12 episodes... well in this set the main story completely takes over... and unfortunatly it just isnt as brilliant as I had hoped it would be. I found it very difficult to stop myself from becoming bored with the tedious and now slightly rediculous plot and also found the action to be quite boring (as it just seemed like I was watching the same fights over and over really)

The character designs and scenery still look really great just like in the first part. Theres also a few half decent episodes involving a rather awesome reoccuring side character named Dune that I just couldnt help but be intregued by. Dio and Casshern have a final showdown aswell, and whilst this fight is nowhere near as good as Dio and Cassherns first bout in part one... it still has some great moments and is reasonably well scripted.

The story has really gone downhill on the most part though. Theres alot of mumbling about the obvious point that "there can be no life without death" and really that seems to be the only message to take away from this series... just remember... we're all gonna die someday! .... how bleak. Urgh.

So... overall, Part one of Casshern really is in a different league to this second installment. Chances are if you liked part one you'll buy part 2 anyways and I don't blame you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear. 30 July 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
Believe.
