    Quirkiness is its own reward
    I loved this series when it first came out. Similar to the ~monogatori shows in that it never feels compelled to fully explain itself, and that's part of the charm. The Eccentric Family can pull off being calm and wistful and violent and funny all at the same time and that's a neat trick. So glad it's back for more!

    A Tanuki saves the day. A fun anime of supernatural beings living among humans.
    Shimogamo Yasaburo is a tanuki, a racoon-like creature that transforms into a human, unfortunately for him, he is neither the most magical or the wisest creature around. He's constantly running afoul of humans, other tanukis, and tengu. He finds himself constantly on the defensive due to these encounters. This a very creative plot, with the main character being a "monster". His family and ...

    Go watch season 1!!!
    I watched the first episode a couple days ago and was honestly really surprised. The concept is pretty refreshing and the character designs are adorable but pleasantly individualistic. As soon as I finished the first episode, I binged the whole first season in two days and it was so worth it. Season one gives a good background to all the main characters. After you watch this first episode, you ...

    It took everything from an already wonderful series and drastically multiplied it on all sides to be even better
    I'm bad at being concise. This is a really good show and I hate that I need to write a whole review just to give this series the five stars it deserves. I love blabbing but too lazy at the moment.

    Benten is one of the best antagonists in anime, and in most fiction in recent memory to be honest.

    Sorry this was crap, please watch the show.

    Better than season 1
    Although the description focuses on Nidaime, the story still focuses on the Tanuki. The story revolves around the four brothers but with more screen time for their mom. It is easier to understand what's going on in the story, which makes it easier to be into it.

  • Watch The First Season First
    Talk about an ascension. This series utilizes the ingredients that made its first run a success and builds it into something even greater. The characters demonstrate every sense of being "round" characters. Every episode plays out with such finesse and naturalism that nothing feels rushed or contrived. Story elements fall neatly into place and elucidate in their own timing. And that alone ...

  • Haven't watched season one...but wow
    Let me start by saying I didn't know this was season two until I was half way through it...so I can't comment on the continuation. However, it didn't really matter that I didn't see the first because this show totally blew me away.

    I can feel a great depth from a lot of the characters even though I don't know that much about them.

    If I were to summarize this anime I'd say, "Everything is ...

  • Sweet, funny, quirky and sometimes sad.
    This fantastic show about a slightly dysfunctional family who happen to be magical creatures called Tanuki always surprises and pulls at the heart strings. Like a lot of families they fight, complain, and pull pranks, but always pull together and support each other in times of need. Be sure to watch the first Chapter.

    Simply Not Enough To Review
    I wrote this whole long review, and it got deleted "for no name", when the name is the first part I did. :,( So now, I will make it shorter and simple. This looks like a good, fun show. Wish I knew if it was, but I don't, because I won't watch this without first seeing the First season. Was going to give a low rating, but then realized the fault does not lie with the show. So, FOR NOW, I'm ...
