A breach between Earth and the netherworlds has opened up over the city of New York, trapping New Yorkers and creatures from other dimensions in an impenetrable bubble. Now someone is threatening to sever the bubble, and a group of stylish superhumans are working to keep it from happening.
Zacky Dhaffa Pratama (The Indonesian Anime Times)
When I watched the first season back in 2015, the series became my favorite of the season. Not only because of the story, the characters, and the humour, but also because of the soundtrack which really fit to the series.
I feel reunited with those things I enjoy as I watched the first episode of the second season. While set in the somewhat “apocalyptic New York”, the vibes of New York still remain and feel very familiar as a person who had been to New York before. Also, the humour still amuses me while indulging in the “normal” everyday life of Leonardo and his friends.
Surely fans will continue to wait for this anime every week as it is very refreshing to watch, and perhaps would become more intriguing as it gets closer to the end of the season as it had done in the first season. But hopefully, this time the final episode of the second season would not be delayed just like what happened with the first season.
