Final Review: Dog Days’

DISCLAIMER: Anime reviews on this blog will attempt minimal to no spoilers unless otherwise noted. If a review seems dull or shallow, it’s because I’m trying to make sure not to go into too detail for those who are actually interested in the show before or after reading the review or those who have yet to finish the title. If you want further details, there are usually tons of reviews that can be found elsewhere on the internet. Furthermore, anime reviews in general are the sole opinion of the author writing it and thus differ across the users. There is no such thing as a “right answer” only a majority agreement. You are free to have your own opinions and thereby free to state and/or argue/debate in the comments section below or on the Fansub TV Forums. The review is not necessarily meant to serve as a recommendation but rather a personal opinion of having completed the series.

Dog Days’ is the sequel to the surprising hit Dog Days in 2011. It continues to be an original work dependent on no source material. Dog Days’ takes place three months after the events of Dog Days and now brings both Rebecca and Nanami to the party as previously promised. Furthermore, there is the introduction of a third “clan” led by the squirrel looking Couvert. Dog Days’ premiered during the Summer 2012 anime season and was simulcasted by CrunchyRoll. So what does the former Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha staff have in store for us this time?
