4.0 out of 5 stars A nice sequel to a magical series! Oct. 8 2012
By John Thomas Anderson TOP 50 REVIEWER
Kaleido Star and it's second season sequel are an older series that was originally released by ADV and have now been re-issued in a couple of Funimation budget priced SAVE editions. This is the complete second season PLUS some additional extra OVA's and will very thoroughly complete your Kaleido collection. It's a heck of a great deal at this price.

If you haven't seen the first season, I suggest you check out my review on the first season here - Kaleido Star: Season One ) It will pretty much tell you what to expect in the sequel; has an incredibly high quality ending and stands perfectly all right on it's own! (You don't need this sequel to complete the story.)

As for those who have seen the first; this second season is basically a re-set of the first season. New rival, new challenges, same magical storylines, same high quality and almost as good an ending. I won't bother going into any further details. If you've seen the first, you will undoubtedly want the second. If you haven't seen the first, then immediately pick it up first and you'll know if you want the second. I rated the first series at a 4-1/2, I'll rate this one as a 4.

Overall, they're the perfect series if your tastes in Japanese anime run along the lines of the Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki movies; sweet little anime series like Ai Yori Aoshi or Kamichu! or you're just plain tired of aliens and demons and sci-fi elements. Then definitely give the first season a try. This sequel could come later. It would also make a great intro to japanese anime and/or a family series as there's no violence, no real villains and no fighting. The heroine would also make a great role model if you have young girls in your family.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Really Good Show For All Ages Feb. 16 2013
By KevinB - Published on Amazon.com
After Layla and Yuri have left Kaleido Stage, there are some openings in the troupe. Unfortunately, they have been filled with a couple of insufferable jerks. There is a new male lead with a god complex, named Leon. He is constantly degrading the other performers, and causing them to get hurt. The other is a Chinese girl named Mei. Mei is a loudmouth that is constantly challenging Sora, and telling her that she wasn't worthy to be Layla's partner. Sora's new competition makes her lose her way, and challenges her to become a greater performer than she has ever been. Sora will need the help of her friends to achieve her dreams. One would think that the legendary great maneuver was the pinnacle of acrobatics, but it was only a stepping stone for Sora on her way to becoming a true Kaleido Star.

This season picks up a short while after season 1 ends. The first 2 episodes are just a recap of season 1. You can start at episode 3 if you really don't want to watch a recap. The series is still as much fun as it was in the 1st half. I only have 1 complaint. The relationship between Sora and Ken doesn't develop at all. I was hoping that season 2 would take care of that, but it doesn't. I guess that they didn't think that was necessary for a show like this. The show has a TV-14 rating, but I don't think that is even close. I think it's suitable for 8 and up. There is a scene where Fool tries to grope Sora, but he gets shot down. It's good clean fun for everyone.

Another thing that I don't understand is why they dubbed one OVA episode and not the other. OVA 1 is about Rosette becoming a star as well. OVA 2 is about Layla. OVA 2 is only in Japanese. This series is really good. It lacks a few minor things that keep me from giving it 5 stars. It could have been much better if the Sora and Ken relationship was developed. That extra amount of drama would have helped a whole lot. But Kaleido Star is still very entertaining just the way it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good family anime series that most will enjoy Dec 16 2011
By Mvargus - Published on Amazon.com
Kaleido Star is an anime series that sets its own rules from the start and then proceeds to use those rules to tell a coming of age story in a dramatic fashion. Season 2 starts with Sora now the leading performer at the Kaleido Stage, but for some reason the owner brings in a male lead who is emotionless and harsh to her, and then finds a former ice-skater who comes to the stage with the sole purpose of becoming the star and pushing Sora aside.

The series features a number of interesting "cirque de soleil" style acrobatic shows, although with the laws of physics cheerfully suspended. Sora and her compatriots on the stage perform trapeze acts that require one to stay in the air for nearly unlimited amounts of time. It's fun to watch, but any adult watching with young children will definitely want to remind them that this is not real life.

The animation itself is not the most technically advanced. There are no glaring mistakes, but the artists knew the story was the most important and did not try to overshadow.

This is not a series if you want a lot of violence, mecha, fighting or romance. It's a coming of age story as Sora overcomes a number of barriers, both within herself and thrown in her way by others as she grows as a star. I recommend this highly.

It's a good follow-up to the original season of Kaleido Star. New cast members, new challenges for Sora, and eventually, Sora discovers what her dream for the Kaleido Stage is.

I love it, and my 6-year-old girl is fascinated with the series! It is so beautiful to watch and cheer for Sora, the main character. The story is full of messages about trying your best, never giving up, and being confident in yourself. Perfect!
