Firstly I absolutely loved season one, the character development and story combined with fast frantic action made it a great show which I eagerly awaited each episode. That needed to be stated before I continued.
So did you watch season one? Did you enjoy season one? Well if the answer to these questions was yes then don't watch season two part one.
Firstly the voice acting differs from season one as such there is a continuity issue. The first two episodes seem to be very badly 're-hashing the first season. And finally the shows focus has shifted from flame haze haze versus the crimson denizens to Japanese slice of life high school love triangle triangle and not a good one at that.
By the end of disc one I wanted to turn it off, by the end of disc two I cancelled my pre-order of season two part two. The best thing about the whole show was finding the eject button of the DVD player.
