    Genre: Comedy, Romance, Drama Length: 12 episodes "To: The Neighbors Club From: Student Council Reps Re: Club Guidelines It has come to our attention that your club -- officially formed with the goal of "making friends" -- has been taking part in questionable behaviors on campus. We'd like to remind you that none of the following are approved club activities: *Stalking #especially taking candid photos of your peers# *Playing inappropriate video games *Watching anime involving adult themes *The creation of time machines While we applaud your creative efforts in making a movie about intergalactic samurai robot wars, please note that the costumes do not fit our dress code. In addition, we have reports of brewing drama between Yozora and Sena regarding Kodaka -- including the fact that an engagement has taken place. Please fill out required paperwork if the chapel needs to be reserved." Haganai Next! The continuation of The Neigbors Club and all of its antics. Season 2 continues with the jokes and gags of season 1, but ups the ante by building on the character developments and relationships. To clarify, the relationships don't really move anywhere even as the girls attempt to get Kodaka to acknowledge their romantic interests in him. The most noticeable change comes from Sena who is much more forward. I should say that about Rika, but there's no limit to how blunt she is. The truth about Yukimura finally comes out, too! We also find out that Maria has a bombshell older sister named Kate who teaches at the school as well! I enjoyed season 2 a lot more than season 1 even if it still felt a little ungratifying in the end. Yozora is brutal in her harassment of Sena by persuading her to do the most insane things. Funny as heck when Kodaka says things out loud that he meant to say in his head especially in the first or second episode when Rika takes off her glasses. Have to watch the roller coaster scene with Rika as well. I was laughing my butt off for a while after listening to her. Rika really changes as well here. She knows that Kodaka is playing ignorant to the other girls' affections. The last episode contains a fight between the two which really gets to the heart of the series. Graphics are still pretty good here. It felt that they pulled back on the amount of unnecessary fanservice which was nice. You still have plenty of T&A, but it didn't feel as forced. Loved the English dubs as well. The Japanese just don't get as vulgar or mean as they need to for some of the insults. Extras are pretty standard fair here, but the "Black Dragon" extra is great to watch. Roller coaster scene was one of my favorites. I loved Haganai Next. It's a fantastic series in my opinion that really mixes some great comedy with good drama. Even if you didn't fully enjoy the first season, I think that you'll really like the second. Also, good luck ordering the limited edition off of the website. My order was auto-cancelled twice. It didn't list any stores as carrying it, but I found it down in Brentwood. If you have a store in the area that still has an anime selection, then they might still have some copies!

    I don't repeat what's on the back of the box it is my personal opinion. If you have seen the first season then you already know whats happening, I don't need to bore you but I must. It's about a boy who has no friends but one day comes across a girl who is secretly his childhood friend whoopsie! She decides to make a club called the neighbor club to order to make friends. Now that out of the way the second season it picks up right where it left off still trying to make friends somewhat? I had a good time watching it but it was not as funny as the first. All of the characters are back so no worries there. However I would have liked some OVA's but sadly there are none and that is kind of sad. overall i'm not a fan of season 2. the first season did way more better. Well i'm tired of typing. Conclusion still good

    The intro music is not as awesome...and what follows is the same. The characters (especially Rika) seem to change drastically for no reason... True fans will be happy for more, I am... The ending redeems the 2nd season, hope for season 3!

    The movie is very good. Quality is good. The story is interesting. We can recommend to other animax movie fans. I hope there will be a fan wearing the custom of this movie character in the next Los Angeles animax show in 2015.

    This second season continues with the hijinks and introduces some new characters in the latter half.
