Ugh the CG.................

Coming from the first season, I think they've made this one for fans of the mobile game (didn't play it for long) and not fans of the anime....

The way they just rushed out all of the signature songs of each group kind of screams "SEE THIS IS GOOD MUSIC PLEASE KEEP WATCHING" Kind of trying hard there to get an audience (though I liked Shuwarin Dreaming). Normally I'd expect a signature song as the highlight of a story arc instead of some sort of medley in the first episode.

Yes it's better than the 2nd season not being made at all as someone else said, but this CG is seriously NOT my cup of tea. I feel like i'm watching a bunch of robot marionettes instead of anime characters.

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep watching. Maybe 2nd episode.

p.s. is it just me or did they change Tae's VA? Tae didn't sound like herself AT ALL for some reason. She sounded squeaky......


is it really that bad ? looking at it and comparing alot of other cgi anime out there, this looks way better than pretty much most CG i have seen. i too is a hardcore cgi anime hater, but atleast s2 looks good enough.

It certainly felt really bad to me. I really wished they kept the animation from the first season.

I'm not a CGI anime hater either... I can accept a show like Ajin since:
1. It's animated like that from the beginning, and not switched
2. The otherworldly mood of the show kind of fits that style of animation

Same with Knights Of Sidonia, since it's another Sci-fi show. I don't really like non-scifi that has this much CG.

The CGI in the first episode is top rate.

The BanG Dream! franchise has been using CGI for their MVs for quite some time and have been making significant leaps in mastering the technology. (Compare Roselia's first MV for Black Shout with the recent MV for Afterglow's Tsunagu.)

If you watch Afterglow's performance at The Galaxy you can see the locks on their chokers bouncing as they move. You don't see that sort of detail even in theatrical releases. That shows an art department that's got their eyes on making the most of the medium.

The real question is whether they'll be able to maintain the quality throughout the series. *fingerscrossed*

i hope that too. it would have been a shame if the quality drops halfway trough, but i dont really think that is going to be much of a problem, since shazigen is working on this. they have a pretty good track record when it comes to cgi .

As an unashamed Roselia fan I totally loved Ep2.

Yukina certainly comes off cold verging into callous but at the same time she has a point. The Japanese music scene can be brutal outside of venue sponsored performances. If you aren't prepared you can lose a tonne of money.

I wonder if they'll be changing the OP so each band featured in the episode performs it?

Also, I'm getting a vibe that S2 may turn into a vehicle for introducing a new group to the BanG Dream! line-up.

Still on the fence about it being CG but season 2 its enjoyable through the first couple of episodes.

I'm hoping they'll be rotating the bands. Either with the band the episode is focusing on doing the OP or just a straight rotation.

Roselia's OP Brave Jewel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WDJ9wnBNI4

I have a desire to see a Roselia/Land of Lustrous cross over.

Holy shit Episode 4 is top meme tier worth

Misaki is <3 but jfc Kokoro really is one of a kind, bordering between genius and insanity

What the actual fuck did I just watch!?

Episode 4 REALLY threw me off. I'm willing to overlook it for the sake of the spectacle, but I honestly hope I never see that level of ground breaking reality again.

I've said this before but season 2 is definitely made for fans of the mobile game

This episode is perfect proof.........

I think the first special event of the mobile game was Hello Happy World on Kokoro's ship............. Of course it didn't have the outlandish "Iron Bear" but the first part kind of matches

I'm a fan of the first anime season so coming from that, this is........... eh....................

But if you look at it from the point of view of the mobile game this doesn't seem too far fetched- It's just the extension of the randomness that is Hello Happy World

I quit the mobile game a long time ago so this series isn't catering to me
