    Thread to discuss Winter 2019 anime BanG Dream! 2nd season by SANZIGEN. Directing it is Kakimoto Kodai (previously worked on Toji no Miko & Psycho-Pass Movie; did not work on BanG Dream S1), with Ayana Yuniko returning to be in charge of series composition (previously worked on BanG Dream S1, Flip Flappers, & Kiniro Mosaic).

    Summary: BUSHIROAD’s smash-hit multimedia franchise returns for a second anime season! Kasumi and the rest of Poppin'Party may have achieved their goal, but it turns out they were just at the starting line. Performing is a lot of work, and, of course, they're not the only band in town! Do they have what it takes to reach true musical stardom? (Via Sentai)

    Cast:

    • Aimi Terakawa as Kasumi Toyama
    • Ayasa Itou as Arisa Ichigaya
    • Rimi Nishimoto as Rimi Ushigome
    • Ayaka Ohashi as Saaya Yamabuki
    • Sae Otsuka as Tae Hanazono
    • Aina Aiba as Yukina Minato
    • Ami Maeshima as Aya Maruyama
    • Miku Itou as Kokoro Tsurumaki
    • Ayane Sakura as Ran Mitake
    Past the first episode, please hide episode-specific and story details under the spoiler tag.

    I was kinda surprised the anime managed to introduce all the bands and not feel too rushed or weirdly paced despite having an insert song for each of them which all had some pretty good CGI/3D animation for them I thought.

    Interesting rather than attempting to adapt any of the game's content or be a pure sequel to S1 of the anime and ignore the game's storylines or retell them...

    It feels like the anime for S2 seems to take place after a lot the events/stories in the game which are shown in a number of ways in episode 1 already with how various characters interact such as:
    1. Kasumi & Popping Party already seem familiar & friendly with the other bands (and they do seem familiar with each other as well)
    2. Yuri-senpai graduated & Rinko became student council president (something she never would have accepted at the game's earlier points given her even worse social skills then) showing things are a year ish after the start of the game roughly.
    3. Ako started a high school.
    4. Sayo showing herself being more friendly than she was before.
    5. Rimi crushing on Kaoru once again.
