Season 2, Episode 11

Well, disaster hit and Saga is pretty decimated, kind of looks like those things you see on the news. For one their house destroyed, after it apparently started floating away while they were sleeping. The girls had to rely on their crummy makeup job for a few days, doing work during the day to help at a shelter, while raising the spirits of kids in the shelter at night with little concerts. Until it eventually chipped off and they revealed their real faces to a crowd.

Kotaro looked to have a pretty rough time, submerged in water for days, and then on a bit of a journey to find them. And he plans to have them put on a concert in several days, to apparently hopefully save Saga. And we did get a confirmation that Kotaro knew Sakura, she said his name even when alive, he attended her funeral, and likely set on his journey after frustrated from what happened to her.

Biggest surprise, the garbage policeman was actually helpful and good at his job for once, helping to save Kotaro and the master.

Season 2, Episode 12 (Finale)

Erm... what?

I had been thinking it was kind of weird using a massive natural disaster as the backdrop for the big "revenge" concert, but whatever. The very last bit blew all that weirdness right out of the water.

Oh well. I'm giving this a Very Good rating on account of finding the humour Very Good most of the time. I loved the legendary Tae-chan's callback scene with the audience. So very, very Tae.

This BETTER not be the last ZLS season ever...

The last 20 seconds, and there are suddenly aliens that blew up Saga. Considering whether they want this an end, there was also the unexplained bit about blood from Koutarou, so I think they don't consider this entirely the end point. Maybe it will actually just be a movie or something.

Anyway, ignoring that last bit, it was an exciting last episode, at least with a lot of singing and dancing. I would even say that the CGI actually looked pretty decent, as in you would probably find a big difference compared to the very first episodes. It was cool, having the girls travel there, thinking no one might have come, before their friends do, and then showing that there managed to be a big push as a fundraising even, which I guess makes sense after a disaster. I don't know if we are meant to read into the choreography too much, but Tae was doing very well in staying in synch with the others, while usually she struggles a bit more, but I assume we are supposed to due to the detail they usually put in.

I won't say every episode of this season was a winner, such as honestly I wasn't super into Yugiri episodes, despite the extra lore. But it was an interesting part that concluded a picture I saw from the first episode of the series, where all the girls except Sakura are still mindless, but all of their movements hint at the last moments of their deaths. Saki is holding her arms out like a motorbike, Ai looks like she is moving to the centre, Junko is moving like she is terrified outside of a plane window, Lily is banging on the door like her father was there, and Yugiri had her head leaning forward as if being readied to be beheaded. But it also had some great episodes too, like the Maimai and episodes.

Anyway, my rating for season 2 is going to be Very good (8/10), granted that is lower than what I gave the first season, even though I might say that the second season was generally better in quality most of the time. If parts of the first season did not click that well, second season might not have done much more. Perhaps maybe some big game changing surprise could have done something. But still a very good second season. I would love to see more, like perhaps a movie or something.
