The manic, over-stimulated Excel and her fellow agent, the deathly hyatt (hatchan) are back trying to take over the city of F for the glory of across and Lord Ilpalazzo.
The wiredness continues as the pair take on various missions assigned to them by the greatest idiological would be tyrant the world of Anime has ever known, Ilpalazzo, whilst also trying to earn enough money fend off hungar by taking up various part time jobs.
Of course Hyatt and Excel are as good at earning a sustainable income as they are at being secret agents and soon enough Menchi's future (menchi = their dog/ emergence food suply)is looking particually bleak.
But the dunamic pair struggle onward, fighting off hunger, vomiting blood and dieing quite a few times as well, they climb mountains, work in bowling allys and stomp cute Alien Puchu according to Ilpalazzo's wishes.
In conclusion Excel Saga Vol 2 is an excellent continuation of the story of Excel and her efforts to conquer the city for her love Ilpalazzo (not that Ilpalazzo knows anything about how she adores him).
The only problem is that there is one less episode on this DVD than the last one, 4 rather than 5, but don't let this put you off, Excel Saga is great and my only irritation with it is that i spent a long time importing the R1 DVDs for it to come out the very same day i got the sixth and final DVD... Grrrr

HAIL ILPALATZZO!! If you've got the first DVD you know what to expect here, more strange behaviour, more wacky plot turns, more Hyatt dying and some freaky renditions of popular movies
Excell Saga is most definatly the "Airplane" of the anime world

Volume two of the Excel Saga continues in the same vane as the previous volume following the insane antics of the ideological organisation ACROSS as it attempts to conquer the planet beginning with the city of F. This volume contains four episodes and sees the introduction of a new government agency trying to protect the city, a young girl trained as an assassin and a rival ideological movement who are attempting to bring bowling to the masses. All the episodes are hilarious and the Excel Saga continues its mad brilliance.

Continued Comedy 26 Aug. 2002
By "madnessmark" - Published on Amazon.com
While the first five episodes of the series were great, these episodes still retain that comedic greatness you'd come to except from the series and doesn't dissapoint.
Episode 6: Watanabe and his friends meet Masaki, a sexy new agent that aids them in their civil service duty. Meanwhile, Excel and Hyatt go on a search for resources.
Parodies: Yamato ship, Mobile Suit Gundam Movie 2.
Episode 7: Excel and Hyatt trap the civil servents in their sewers and try to kill them while at the same time discovering a monster.
Parodies: Aliens, Cyborg 009, Japanese horror films.
Episode 8: The shows turns into an all-girl show with none of the men showing their faces except Pedro. Plus, Beauty Theater shorts.
Parodies: Maze, ET, Mobile Suit Gundam Movie 3, Titanic, Journey to the East.
Episode 9: Excel and Hyatt explore the exploits of bowling and how dangerous it is.
Parodies: Japanese Bowling Shows (one comes on an hour before Excel Saga's timeslot), Karate Kid, Lupin 3, The Matrix, Excel Saga singers.
The extras include more great production sketches, Japanese TV spots, CD single spots, CD soundtrack spots and ADVidnotes. Plus, there are lots of not-really-hidden easter eggs on the menus, but they don't really access anything really cool.
Overall, I am still impressed at the way this show can still execute this kind of comedy even after five episodes. A must have for any anime fan.

Excel Saga, full of Hyatt goodness 27 Dec. 2002
By Aozame - Published on Amazon.com
I have become very fond of Hyatt after watching the second and third DVD in a row earlier today, but I digress. The Excel Saga gets even more bizarre in this second DVD. There is lots of unnecessary death (mostly Hyatt, who picks some wierd ways to die, like freezing in ice standing up) but it's even funnier than before. I said it before and I'll say it again: Hyatt has one of the best English voices I've ever heard in an anime series EVER. Her voice matches her character perfectly.
Anyway, the parodies get more frequent, and some of them are easily recognizable to Americans like me (such as the Puchuu Queen, which looks like the alien from the Alien movies) and others are fairly obscure.
If you liked the first volume of the series, you'll love volume two!

Insane and inane 18 Aug. 2002
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Excel Saga is for people who like comedy anime that is inane and insane: sometimes it tries to be absurd just to show how some things are so crazy. If you can't understand silly and satyr you'll never get it. It's a show to watch for pure fun when you are relaxed with nothing to do. Entertainment, not education.
The overall theme of Across trying to dominate the world is just as senseless as all the other Evil Organizations trying to dominate the world. What would you do if you dominated the world when in the first volume your leader is so bored he spends his time shopping mail-order? Only a real bunch of loonies would want to dominate the world, ipso facto, that's why Across is trying to.
Instead, as one of the top members of Across (and one of only three members - well, maybe four depending on how reserve food supply counts), Excel just has fun. A blithering, hyper-enegtic idiot, she gets a "vacation" and all the guys are excluded from the scenes; nothing but honeys in bikini's at a pool and a young girl who's an assassin. A tear jerker as such. Excel gets to pig-out.
Mining for gold in the snow capped hills, she is sent out to secure food and shoots poor Menchi, but since Menchi is her reserve food supply asks Will of the Cosmos to put her through the spin cycle and bring her back. A hard jab at the mornonic obsession with hunger some anime has in it.
The good guys get together in skin-tight suits (and one slavers over his dolly-girl infatuation), trying to infiltrate the Across Sewers. Excel and Hyat stab at them with traps and finally it all washes out. The Puchu aliens show more of their less than cutsey side.
In search of a sport to gain control of the youth with, Excel setlles on bowling (never mind that the place is empty because it's boring). In comes a Terrorist Bowling League to bring bowling back to it's heyday as a prime sport and Excel does battle in the wild, crazy way heros do battle in anime. She even gets a sensai who coaches her in the girls bathroom for a whopping long time.
If you want a deep, plot-heavy show, go elsewhere. If you want something light, comical and flittery, with a hard edge of being nothing but slapstick, Excel is for you. As the DVD cover says, "Their Motto is DO or DIE (Well, at least they have the dying part covered.)" You'll find yourself rooting for the loosers.

Insane Fun=Excel Saga (In Japanese) 21 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
(Not literally, of course). This next installment of the crazy and utterly innane Excel Saga has arrived and I must admit...I nearly fell out of another chair when I saw these episodes of Excel Saga. Of course, as we would come to expect, Nabeshin makes an appearance in every episode, yet the jobless Ronins are fighting for screen time. This causes them to beat the snot out of an already dead Pedro...and still miss their few minutes of fame in the last episode. Not to metion, all of the crazy new parodies in these episodes. Sports and horror anime will no longer have the same look after this.
All I have to say is that bowling never looked so fun...and incredibly ridiculous at the same time. Watch Excel Saga hardcore otaku, its a blast!
What is this, some sort of plot?!? 2 Aug. 2004
By J. Fink - Published on Amazon.com
From out of the random madness of the 1st installment of Excel Saga comes....a semblance of a plot?!?

In the 2nd DVD of this off the wall comedy, a 2nd group of characters comes out of the woodwork. Consisting of the 3 guys who live nextdoor to Excel and a new female character in a "tight totally revealing uniform," this group of government employees sets out to apose ACROSS. But do they know what they are getting into?

Of course, all of the zaniness and cuteness of the 1st DVD is back for more. Hyatt, who for some reason I don't understand is called Hatchan by Excel, still dies, or nearly dies almost constantly. The Puchuus return to overwhelm us with their cuteness, and still speak with the same creepy voices when they aren't saying "puchuu." Pedro is still in sorrow over losing his sexy wife, and Excel can't complete a mission to save her life. Or to win the adoration of Illpalazzo.

While I agree with an earlier reveiwer that the 1st DVD was much faster paced, I actually liked the 2nd one better. The 1st DVD almost gave me a headache it moved so fast. And all the jokes were piled on top of each other...you really weren't given an opportunity to appreciate them. That's not to say that this DVD moves at a slow pace, or is lacking in the joke department. While there aren't quite as many roll on the floor moments of hilarity, Excel Saga still delivers a strong punch in the gut humor at times, and a more subtle mocking of many things (including itself!) during others!

My main complaints lie with Excel. Whether watching the dub or the sub version, I often find it hard to keep up with her; the subtitled frequently fly across the screen too quickly to read, and the dub often becomes to shrill and rapid to understand. Other than that...the extras are pretty cool. I always find it interesting to see how this stuff was packaged and promoted in Japan.

In conclusion....this may not be for everyone. (especially anyone who is allergic to Yeti hair, Puchuus or humor) But if you give it a chance, I think you will find that this is probably more hilarious than it should be allowed to be!
