....wow. Victorious (Queen of Darkness) reminds me of Yuno Gasai from Mirai Nikki. And also Aion's sister?!

Dammit Show by Rock you weren't supposed to give me diabetes like that. Ailaine's cuteness level just shot through the roof and is in orbit.

Through 8 episodes I must say i'm not impressed. The male characters are getting as much, if not, more air time than the female characters.

Episode 10

Im not surprised that Ailane wasn't the queen of darkness it didn't make sense for her to turn herself so young. I did however enjoy her background as she turned out to be Aion's little sister. She came to hate music because it was the thing her brother loved that he left home to make his dreams come true. The ending was the best as both siblings make up and you see that she really loves her big brother after so many years apart.

With the queen of darkness announcing the day she's going to attack everyone gets ready for it and even KIng comes to help out.

Episode 11

So the story about how Victorious became the Queen of Darkness is explained as she was betrayed by her best friend Astreal, and she tapped into her inner darkness to betray her back and turn the world into one full of despair. So now that everybody knows when she will strike, the three bands together write lyrics for a new song, and then comes the day of the Puru Land concert where Victorious strikes, and everybody is immobilized. The situation has gotten dire there with the girls unable to play their instruments, but Cyan is still fighting it. One more episode left.

Show By Rock!!# EP 11 "My Resolution”

I read some comments elsewhere that didnt like this EP . I thought it was quite good it was one of those eveything but 'the kitchen sink "

Grateful King is going to help BRR by writing a new song

That is quite a homage with Star Wars this week !



I am impressed with the musical play style segment with Victorious / Astreal back story



The Justice is Power Song / that was a great back and forth Moving Forward together

Why Victorious becomes dark is she slipped and Astreal went ahead w/ o her and her Melodisian became dark That let her beat Astreal to the Top and with her menacing eyes Astreal falls .Bow she wants all the power in the Universe



They get the song done and are ready to perform at Puru Lanf when Victorious traps the crowd and wont the bands play .But Maples had planet Pryuu made him a mech

Episode 11

well this is weird they show us the queen of darkness past and how she went from being a cheerful child to what she is now. I don't blame her for turning out the way she did since her best friend betrayed her when she needed help. Instead of going to her rescue she let her fall to her death and with that the queen of darkness was born. The rest of the episode everyone is getting ready for the queen of darkness to attack but that doesn't help because she captures them and they don't have a chance to play their song to fight back. The only hope right now is the president and his robot that he had made.

Since they took the trouble to show the queen of darkness past it's pretty much a given that somehow they will turn her good again.

Episode 12 (Finale)

That new song to power up that mega-crystal, what a great song that was, all made possible thanks to Mecha Maple and Tsurezure. That was rather silly way to get out of this desperate situation, but nevertheless they showed Victorious not to underestimate the power of music. And in the end, Victorious remembers how great it felt to be singing, thus her darkness is purified as expected seeing that it went so far as to explain her background. With her mission complete, it's back to the real world again for Cyan with a brand new song for the her school's band. While not the best of endings, it does what it needed to do and that's good enough for me.

Final Thoughts

This season pretty much has the same great and not so great things as the first season. The music is great, the characters are a fun and lovable bunch, the atmosphere is inviting, and the enjoyment factor is there, while on the flip side, the story is lacking in cohesion as it jumps around quite a lot, and often inappropriately timed. While this season improves on the first in that the music is better and the story has much more depth than the first as it does a nice job in character expansion, the show's focus wavers more so than the first season, so the grade for this season is only slightly higher than for the first season.

Grade: B- (high 7/10)

The finale felt a bit predictable imo. The fact that everyone came together does please me and the music performance they did was entertaining.

Victorious retaining her love for music was something I had expected from the start. Well it was a fun show overall.
Cyan seems pretty happy with everything that came together in the end too. Just look at this smile:

While there were some very nice moments here and there, I'm not sure I enjoyed this season as much as the first. That said, it was still a really enjoyable show that I was eager to watch every week. Really good stuff. They also left it pretty open for a third season with Dagger regaining his powers so hopefully we'll get even more.

Also would have been nice for Retoree to finally make a move for Cyan at the end like it looked was about to happen but this isn't really that type of show.

Uwasanopetals has fallen into the hands of Dagger....they're going to give him a run for his money xD I'll take that as a hint for a possible 3rd season.

Episode 12 (Finale)

The final episode was something as the one that stole the show was the president with his mecha. Not only did he save everyone but he also took Victorious by himself and made it funny while doing it. Things got serious when Darudayuu showed up with the giant Melodisian Stone and everyone sang the new song to power it up and just as Victorious was going to put a end to it the prez comes in and pushes the stone on to her. Victorious remembers the time when she enjoyed singing with her friend and she turns good again. Now with her good again she apologizes for all she's done and leaves for her planet and the concert begins with Plasmaica playing their new song. After they finish Ninjinriot shows up to pick Cyan and take her back to her world but not before saying good bye to everyone and that they will see each other again. The final scene we see Cyan playing the new song with her school band while everyone in Midi city watches.

Final Thoughts

This season turned out better than I thought it would. First of all I liked how both Plasmagica and CrimsonZ got episodes dedicated to them so we get to see them grow through out the season. Second had to be the opening as it was way better than first season's and it was catchy when you listen to it. Now down to the negative thing which so far is only one and that is the outcome of season. At first it seem that Victorious was just a evil villain who wanted to destroy Midi city but turns out she was good and turned bad. After that the outcome of how it was going to end was a given and pretty much yeah it went how I predicted it to. Another thing was that at the end when Cyan was playing with her band we didn't get to see her band mates again. I pretty much guess that her band mates are the human version of Plasmagica in her world. Well one thing for sure it was left open for a third season as Dagger has gotten his strength back and would want revenge again.
8/10
