The Big O II
With the introduction over...."IT'S SHOW TIME"
Visual Quality-18 points. The character designs for this show are awesome, They don't look anything like the usual anime designs, in other words they are creative. The fight scenes are well put together, and the coloring is much improved over Big O I. There is no major flaw with the animation, but it just doesn't have that extra punch needed to get a perfect score.
Plot-36 points. One of the big problems I had with Big O I was that the episodes were all one-shots, and went through the villian of the week cycle. Fortunately, unlike Big O I, Big O II has more of a story. Background characters, from the first season, return with bigger plans, and the villian of the week trend is largely eliminated. Many subplots are incorporated, and overall the story is very good. However, I had some trouble understanding several of the romantic subplots, and the ending is just plain wacky.....Ha wacky that's a funny word.
Characters-27points. One of the upsides of Big O is that it has a well developed cast. Most of the focus is placed on the main character Roger Smith, but the supporting cast is also well developed. Many new characters are introduced in this season, and their backgrounds are mostly neglected, which is the only downside to this show's characters.
Music-7 points. Most of the background music is pretty cool, but it is repeated alot. The opening theme song kind of sucks. It's mainly a chorus of people saying "Big O.....Big O Big O BIG OOOOO".
All right lets see Visual Quality-18 points, Plot-36 points, Characters-27 points, Music-7 points, what could this possibly add up to?
