No Mitsuki for season two TT_TT
So what is the story of Akibaranger now? Well it starts out a couple of months after the previous events. Mitsuki is gone because of the Pentagon and Yumeria vanished for some reason. We do find out though at the end of episode one that something isn't right. Somehow Akibaranger has become an official Sentai series! There is some bad news to this though, Dairanger doesn't even exist anymore! Nobuo decides to see what exactly is going on and the only course of action is the delusion world. He meets Ryuu Ranger, but he isn't the same anymore. He has been changed to China Red of Chinaman the rumored name for Dairanger. We find out it's actually a villain Otaku attacking the Sentai in the delusion world as he has Malshina help him out with his plans. This new villain is General Tsuu and as I said before he's an Otaku like the heroes, but he loves the villains of Super Sentai. He even makes his own monsters based on each series and sends them into the delusion world. This causes havoc in the real world as the monsters are making changes to the real world as seen with Dairanger. So now our heroes have to save their beloved Sentai series from harm, but wait, what about the other two? Well Yumeria does come back as we learn that she got married and for Akiba Blue a new female warrior takes the spot. Her name is Luna and she is hyper active and wants to become an idol. She really has no interest in Sentai, but she sees this as a possible use for her to become a better idol. So with the three unofficial heroes back they will painfully use their powers to save the day!
Can't forget about Super Akiba Red!Cons- Now even though the beginning was well done, sadly the series doesn't hold up for too long with this premise. Episode five is a great example of this as the team is going to save Zyuranger who has become the Powerful Rangers. So we had a Power Ranger parody along with the Sentai parody. I was hoping to see a lot of really good jokes for this premise, but sadly it was wasted potential. I even felt this for some of the other episodes, like the robot girl, the evil sentai, and even the finale. Now the series still hit at some great points, but that was mostly thanks to Tsuu. The heroes this time felt a little under developed this time which is sad since last time they actually did branch off in season one. Also Luna I didn't really care for until episode eleven. She was just a boring character to me, she was just being Akiba Blue to help her in her idol career. Even when she had the chance to have a really good developed moment, they missed it in episode five, but at least it came in episode eleven. Then the finale.... well episode twelve throws a lot of curve balls. Really for a finale, too many new things were brought up and it just got in the way of a really good build up from episode eleven.
Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger Season Two a B+
Now let's hope we get a third season!
