The Dangers in My Heart Season 2 is Frankly Amazing

Key points for The Dangers in My Heart Season 2:

  • Season 2 of “The Dangers in My Heart” excels in character progression, particularly with Ichikawa’s natural evolution and the nuanced portrayal of Yamada’s insecurities.
  • The series maintains strong engagement through expert pacing, a notable improvement over the slower start of Season 1.
  • While the animation and art style remain consistent, the standout opening theme adds to the overall enjoyment and leaves a lasting impression.

It is wild how much my opinion of the series has changed in such a short time, There was a time when I was not fond of this anime at all but now, I really do consider this the first anime of the year contender for 2024. In my opinion, at least. So what did The Dangers in My Heart Season 2 do to change my opinion so drastically? The answer to that question is a word that you will read a lot in this review. Characters. The sheer strength of the characters and character arcs is what carries this anime.

So I will keep the introduction short because there is a lot to talk about. Welcome back to another one of my reviews today we are talking about The Dangers in My Heart Season 2. Let’s get started.

Plot

I will keep this section short. There is not much to talk about here. You don’t watch a romance anime for the plot. The one thing here I would like to comment on is the pacing. The beginning of Season 1 was a rather slow burn but not here. The pacing has improved dramatically and each episode does an incredible job of pulling you in because of how expertly paced the series is. Season 1 felt a little too slow in the first half, not here. Other than that, you can find a lot of the school romance anime cliches here as well and I don’t particularly mind that.

Characters

THIS is where this series truly shines. Ichikawa is almost a completely different character from season 1 and I like that. You know why? Because his character follows a progression that feels natural. As much as I didn’t like the first half of season 1, I will always commend it for setting up Ichikawa’s overall character arc. I did not like him at first but now I truly root for him. It is a dramatic change but it never feels forced because of how gradual it is.

Yamada’s character arc is not that deep but she has her own fair share of good character moments throughout Season 2. Despite how she may appear she is not perfect and her insecurities are a big part of her character. I understand that given her situation and the kind of work she does. Again, her and Ichikawa’s relationship is built so well gradually, over time. I can’t help but root for them.

The side characters in this season are also a massive improvement over Season 1. Yamada’s friends are given a lot more character now, it is fun to see them interact with Ichikawa. The recent episode gave Adachi a bit of a character arc as well. But the shout-out here goes to Ichikawa’s sister. She is one of the best characters in the season and I adore how supportive and understanding she is. She has become an unexpected highlight of this season for me.

Animations and Soundtracks

Not much to say here, The production value of this season is similar to Season 1, the animations and art style are alright and more than get the job done. And that is perfectly fine. I will say though, the opening theme to this season is a banger. I don’t remember the opening theme of Season 1 but I don’t think it was this good. This opening theme immediately went into my playlist.

Summing Up

Here are my final scores for The Dangers in My Heart Season 2:

  • Plot – 8/10
  • Characters – 10/10
  • Animations – 7/10
  • Soundtracks – 8/10
  • Enjoyment – 10/10
  • Overall – 9/10

That is all for now. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I adore this anime I am sad that next week is the last episode of this season. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!!
