I enjoyed the first season, but I've heard nothing but negative comments about the second season. IT's been a long time since I've seen season one, and I've been putting off Teatrino for fear of tarnishing my view of the series.
To be honest, I hadn't seen any reviews for it(aside from the one on Amazon, which was a pretty positive one(mentions that while the animation itself isn't quite as good, it still has a good story), so I've been looking online to see what I can find. So far, all I've found is frustration in finding much, since it appears that both the new series and an OAV are named "Il Teatrino".
Edit: Right after posting this, I found some reviews. They all pretty universally pan the animation and one notes a few continuity errors(loading a shotgun but shooting a rifle, etc). However, they all give it praise for the story itself. Good enough for me. I shall remain cautiously excited, though it sounds like reading the manga would be an acceptable alternative to get the story without the downside. Edited, Aug 13th 2009 11:36pm by Poldaran
