I love Obari's character designs to death and am generally entertained by his animation, but after volume one I was a bit skeptical about this series. Volume 1 just seemed kind of dry and at its pace made me feel like any hope for a resolving of issues by the end of volume 3 was doubtful. And yet a lot of volume one seemed like needless filler.
Volume 2 doesn't exactly answer a great deal of the questions, but the plot flows well, stays on track, and sets a course for a tie-in of answers in a major past event or two. I REALLY enjoyed this volume after finding the first mediocre and if Volume 3 does a good job, this could really be one of my personal favorite anime series.
Plus, looking back at even the mediocre volume 1 it almost seemed that way due to the introduction of plot elements that look to be coming together. Everything has a purpose, so if volume 3 ties it together well I can see this title getting future viewings. Recommended to any Obari fan!
