Here we have the second of my top 3 most anticipated shows of Fall 2017. Let’s find out what “The Perfect One and Friends” had in store for us upon their omega level hyped return.
The second season began with Chika dreaming of the victory envelope with Aqours’ name written on it she one day hopes to obtain. After waking up from a double-dream (Aqoursception) she rushed to school.
Starting off her speech with a fourth wall joke Mari addressed Aqours’ new army and announced preparations to compete in another Great Idol War coming up. They failed to qualify for the Nationals last season but they were more than ready to go all-out this time around.
Aqours training on the roof. (Still not sure which of the two is Zuramaru’s #1).
Being the head disciple of “The Disciples of Dia” it will be my duty to count EVERY SINGLE TIME The Perfect One uses her iconic catchphrase throughout the season. I failed to do so last time but I’ll be sure to rectify this mistake. If memory serves me it was 4 or 5 times. Oh and no. I’m not going to count every time Mari speaks Engrish.
Anyway the girls talked an open house show coming up to show off their awesomeness and attract even more potential soldiers for the Great Idol War.
More on this call in a bit.
We learned that Riko’s mom had access to the Gates of the Netherworld and Yohane being extra fluffy behind her dark exterior. Also the queen is a teacher at the school, making things awkward between the two. Besides that the girls talked about where to train for the open house. While that was going Kanan noticed her beloved showing signs of something bothering her so she sent her a signal that night to come cuddle.
Mari came clean and told her boo that her Papa was tired of waiting and declared the merger between the two schools mentioned last season would happen sooner than planned. Basically the plan to attract more students failed and the school will be shutting down soon.
Mari didn’t tell Dia right away but our gift from the heavens showed up and was like “Dood, I’m perfection personified! There’s NOTHING I can’t do or figure out!” The three agreed that it could not be kept a secret from the others for long. Chika’s response was to book a flight to America and confront Mari’s Papa. If that did happen I would have lost my mind.
It’s worth mentioning the one girlfriend of Chika’s who had the most influence in helping her find her way was Riko. For one she’s dating her and it’s her way of repaying Chika for everything from last season.Worry not, for You also helped show her the way a little.
After lots of thought and support from her lovers and peeps Chika refused to give up and was determined to find a way to stop the school from closing…or at the very least lead Aqours to a war so great the world will never be the same. Obviously the rest of Aqours felt the same way.
Put simply this premiere had everyone doing what they did best and fans across the globe rejoiced. Can’t wait to see more!
Kudos to my boy Mauron for bringing up the following excellent observation. Aqours began showing their superpowers:
- Mari’s ability to break the fourth wall.
- Kanan’s super strength
- Chika’s magical skirt.
PPS: In case someone brings this up: Personally I’m not that annoyed they’re still doing the “save the school from being closed” thing. It’s a means to an end. What’s more important is seeing Aqours become stronger than ever doing their own thing instead of continue to copy μ’s.
