10/10 Arc from the start to the end. I probably would have preferred for all the second season to focus on the past; but this will do.

That was a good backstory.

It was odd seeing Dazai be truly emotional about something.

Holy crap that backstory arc was a zillion times more amazing than the whole first season. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the writing will remain on point when we return to the present day.

Wow Simply WOW....Joker Dazai is great and all...but can we get more of this emotional Dazai? goodness this Arc as left me in pure Awe, I just can't believe a character like Oda could be created in just 4 episodes and pretty much destroy every other characters' value in the series so far. I would like to see a prequel-prequel of Oda beacuse I love his characterization so much.

Sorry, I just don't know how the rest of this season 2 is suppose to top this past 4 eps...it shits all over Season 1...and unless the tone of the rest of the season can come toe to toe with this arc I just don't see it happening. However I welcome the surprise to be proven wrong if they can do it, the next eps title of Conflict in Three's Companies does give me hope of the story hinting history is about to repeat itself, -- So maybe we can get close to this Arc's level of success?...Gah so so good. Oda you were too good for any series.

Honestly if this arc had been a standalone with a much longer length.,, and ended up being a iconic series , Oda's Duel would near the level of Spike's Duel in Cowboy D= .

Wow what a treat! This was a great arc but I am truly glad to be going back to the present. I missed the old crew and I missed the comedy in between the dark stuff.

I guess that could also be a way to show how much Dazai's life changed when he changed sides. In that sense, the two are not the same because now he's part of a group where friendships matter and you can have a laugh with your colleagues. He might still get lonely, but at least he's surrounded by people who care.

Let's hope The Guild can make for an engaging and interesting story, now that it appears we've caught up to present events.

Kind of wished they played the ED from Season 1 to end the episode. The translated lyrics I've seen would have really fit it.

Completely blown away by this back story arc. I don't know what I was expecting from season 2 but it wasn't this. If this season was only these four episodes then I'd still be extremely satisfied. The writing is extremely tight and on point and it's really raised the bar for this series. I can't wait to get back to the normal cast but I'm already more than satisfied with season 2. We finally get to learn more about Dazai and why he joined the Armed Detective Agency.

Also today I just discovered something that many of you'll may already know but if not then please check out the Japanese author Osamu Dazai on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osamu_Dazai

He's an extremely famous pre and post war author in Japan who wrote a book called "No Longer Human" among others. I did not realize that so much about Dazai was based on this author. There's even a mention of an Akutagawa who is also another author that Dazai was fond of. I wonder what else they've put in this show that I've missed?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Longer_Human Taken from Wiki:

This novel, despite being serialized as a work of fiction in 1948, is narrated in the first person and contains several elements which betray an autobiographical basis, such as suicide—a recurring theme in the author's life.

I'm on board with the Dazai hype, but we need to get back to more Izumi hype!
