Fun times ahead for fans of Lala, Yami, and Mea. Loli-Lala fans will be disappointed, but the wimping out on her scenes was probably to be expected at this point.
While the sales of this season are the weakest of the series to date, they are still very good in the context of 2015, a year that saw a rise in the middle class but a huge drop off at the top. Relative to its peers, this series was still likely among the 25 best selling anime of the year. It’s pretty likely we’ll see a 3rd season, though it might not happen until 2018 or so.
Given how much the manga is invested in bundling animations with tankobon releases, I think at the very least we’ll see several more OVAs, with two of them already having been announced for later this year.
Overall, this series was a clear step down from the 2012 season both in terms of art quality and excitement factor. This series was still good enough to be considered for the top ecchi anime of 2015 (though for me, that honor will probably go to Shinmai Maou no Testament ). And while the art quality seemed to drop a huge amount, it’s an issue that is plaguing the entire industry right now so it would hardly be fair to single this series out.
I doubt it will happen, but I would really like to see this series get back to the production values it previously had come back some day. Not to mention, get over their silly prudishness with Mikan and loli-Lala. But even if it doesn’t, this series is still legendary for a reason. Hopefully Xebec will keep us distracted with enough OVAs that the several years wait for the next season will be bearable.
