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
