Yesu;Desu ep 2: Her yesu is cute… Her desu is… *nosebleed*

Dalian vs Suiseiseki... I wonder who'd win

While I admit that this anime is enjoyable, I’m not seeing this anime to rise above all others just yet. If anything, this anime needs something more to make it click. I guess this is its flaw considering how it started last, running up until its 2nd episode while all others finishing up with their 3rd.

Following the trend with all 2nd episodes, aside from the book of the week flow, we get to see the conditions set for using Phantom Books, the benefits and risks of setting them up, as well as shedding more light in Huey’s character in which we find that not only is he a capable partner for Dalian in terms of combat, his intuition is sharp when the situation calls for it as well.

He takes the initiative in getting things done and does not complain along the way. I also find him to be very much charismatic in the sense that he can keep his ground whenever he converses with Dalian. Unlike the Kujou x Victorique relationship where the latter would always get the upper hand, resulting in Kujou bitching through an entire episode, the chemistry of Huey x Dalian is quite natural to the point that both of them see each other as equals despite Dalian being a form that exists beyond human reasoning.

The question know is whether or not Dantalian no Shoka can keep up with my interest. Book of the week schemes are not that appealing nowadays so it’s natural for viewers to raise their standards a bit higher.

    Yeah, the book of the week scheme is a bit disappointing, but I can see myself overlooking that just for her “yesu” XD

    Suiseiseki is definitely superior in terms of pure Desu power. 😐

    The atmosphere for this series is really fitting for the story and source material, and the OP/ED themes really help with that. I’m kind of curious about how the story will unfold from here, and if there will be an overarching plot soon. While I don’t mind the “phantom book of the week” approach so far, i’m pretty sure it’ll get repetitive soon enough.

    At least Huey and Dalian are competent characters, which could keep things entertaining.
