Kamisama Kiss Season 2

This is the last of my Winter 2015 titles.
And.... i don't really have anything continuing into Spring...
other then Sailor moon and kuroko.... and i don't know if i'm going to continue either of those at this rate.

Anyways, Kamisama Kiss.
Easily the girliest show i watched this season but it's cute and fun so it's all worth it.

The story continues to follow Nanami, a young girl who loses her home and ends up inheriting the position of land God. she needs to work hard to gain the respect of her Familiars as well as other gods who think a human just isn't suited for the role.
At the same time she falls in love with her Fox Familiar Tomoe but love between humans and yokai is forbidden.
so yeah... it's more of that...
we get a few new characters and more development of her becoming a god.
and it's cute and adorable and the intro song is catchy as hell (and so much better then season 1... season 1 had a terrible intro song)

However if you don't like girly shows
or romantic comedies this isn't going to change your mind.
I thought it was sweet and fun and i adore stories that have a mostly real world with supernatural elements.

So yeah... the good:
Plot gets furthered, we learn more about certain characters but lots of stuff is still open for season 3 (which i'm sure will happen in a year or two to let the manga get further ahead)
Animation is lovely and can at times have this watercolour feel which i really like.
Intro song~
i dunno it's just so fun~ i like fun happy music.

The not so good:
As much as the plot does go forward.... not too much happens.
there are characters that are introduced that do not get enough decription... but season 3 will most likely deal with that.
The last episode mentions that it's the last episode which will confuse people.... especially considering i'm pretty sure season 1 did the exact same thing. Anime based on ongoing manga tend to take breaks to let things catch up or get further ahead...
Break between Haruhi Season 1 and 2 was 3 years.
between season 1 and 2 of natsume yuujinchou there was a 3 month break followed by a three year gap between 2 and 3.
Slayer didn't get a 4th season till nearly 10 years AFTER season three.
so yeah unless the original content has finished and the manga has covered the same ground there is still a chance for more...
the final episode doesn't mean the end of a series.
sorry i think i have some Natsume yuujinchou 'please let season 5 happen soon' anxiety i needed to get off my chest. 

The bad:
this has a very specific and limited audience... if you do not like cute little girly love stories with RomCom elements then you will hate this
i enjoyed it and look forward to buy it.... when our dollar isn't so bad though... but anyways...

You can watch this (and season 1) over at Funimation if you are in north america and Crunchyroll for other places (i don't know where, crunchy wont tell me) 

Thats it! Winter 2015 is over (for me)

Here are all the other shows i wrote about this season:
Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie
Your Lie in April - another stellar (but very sad) show 
Yona of the Dawn
Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!  Silly title but great show.
Parasyte - the maxim -  Great show with a terrible ending
Death Parade
Durarara!! x2 

Hopefully in a few weeks i'll have my first impression for Spring 2015... dunno if i'll have as many titles as i did this season (cause working 12 hour days and makign time to watch anime don't really go hand in hand) but i do have a handful of things i am excited about (nagato yuki spin off and SNAFU 2... it's going to be a fun season)
What were your fav titles for winter 2015? lookign forward to anything in spring? let me know!
