Should You Watch: If you enjoyed the 1st season, of course.
General Comments: So, this got swept under the rug a bit from the Winter season, so it is part of the Spring 2017 review lineup. Super Lovers 2 continues right where the 1st season left off and goes from there. It’s more or less the same plot-line as the 1st, but a bit more static in it’s progression. Although the development continues between Haru and Rin, it sometimes feels like it’s more of the same. I think that’s why it was an urgency for me to watch the episodes each week and hence why it got pushed. However, I didn’t dislike this season at all, I actually enjoyed it, but I can’t say I was quite as excited as I was for the 1st season. In some ways this season was better, but in others it fell a bit short. I think it’s a similar case as with Junjou Romantica, where Season 3 for me was a bit mediocre in retrospect of the 1st two seasons, despite me still enjoying it. I’m not sure why, but I’m finding that I enjoy the sweet and sentimental BL relationships more than the aggressive, overly-physical relationships now a days. This of course is a decent balance between the two, but I found myself wanting more sweet moments. I think it also doesn’t help that Haru is becoming a frustrating character with his lack of development compared to Rin. All in all, Super Lovers 2 was still enjoyable and I’m looking forward to another season, but overall was not as good as the 1st.
