After focusing on Shinku and Éclair, it seems that this show is becoming better in terms of excitement.
From the look of things, it seems that they are focusing on each kingdom as seen in the last episode and this episode. Although it’s disappointing that Éclair didn’t appear in this arc while the main male lead, Shinku didn’t have much screen time, it was still a very exciting episode from all the action the girls gave. Vert, Jaune and Nanami apparently visits a town to catch the thief that has been stealing clothes. Aside from their usual antics like mistaking a dog human as a thief, which turns out to be Borioche’s forgotten brother while the two losing their clothes again, the stereotypes of males being perverted and wanting to steal girls’ kimonos is still in full force although it’s not entirely true.
Despite the mixup, I did like how the two Genoise girls’ appearance in the kimono, especially Nanami. Her cat girl disguise looked really cute even while being badass when she thought Isuka was the thief. Still, it’s rather interesting to see that demons exist in different varieties. They are not nearly as bad compared to the one in the first season where Millhi almost faced a near-death experience. However, the idea of rabbit demons disguising themselves as cute rabbit girls is kind of creepy and it doesn’t stop there either. There was a big and scary rabbit demon that tried to escape. The display that Millhi and Leonmitchelli (with twin tails), both wearing kimonos looked awesome. They combined their powers, which knocked out the demon. Believe it or not, this is probably the best scene in the second season thus far.
Aside from the exciting defeat of all those demon hares, I think this and the last episode is a strong indication that the second season of Dog Days has improved a lot from the expanded cast. Still, I find it amusing that Borioche’s brother, Isuka made a sudden appearance and how he calls her “Hina”. I never knew that was her real name although I admit, it sounds embarrassing for a famous demon hunter to bear. ¶
