Key points for The Dangers in My Heart Season 2 mid-season review:
- I absolutely love the way the anime handles character growth, especially witnessing Ichikawa’s personal journey and the evolving relationship between me and Yamada.
- Episode 6 hit me hard, earning a perfect 10/10 in my book. I could deeply relate to Ichikawa’s social anxiety, and his character moment left a lasting impact.
- The anime keeps me hooked by skillfully blending serious character moments with well-timed humor. Whether it’s Yamada’s father or Ichikawa’s cynical humor, the comedy perfectly complements the overall narrative.
It is honestly hard to believe that there was a time when I didn’t like this anime. I don’t know what happened but ever since the last few episodes of season 1, this anime has been cooking. I think to myself every week that this is surely the best episode, no wat it will get better than this. And then right the next week, this anime treats me with a better episode. The Dangers in My Heart Season 2 and A Sign of Affection are already contending for the best romance anime of 2024 in my mind. I honestly don’t see how any other anime this year will even come close.
Yeah, that is how much my views on this anime have changed compared to when season 1 came out. I didn’t even finish Season 1 back then. I only picked Season 1 back up because of the high praise Season 2 was getting. And now it all makes sense, So welcome back to yet another mid-season review. And I fear I may have already told you exactly how I feel about this anime. Regardless, today we are talking about The Dangers in My Heart Season 2. Let’s get started,
What do I think of The Dangers in My Heart Season 2 so far?
If you have not watched episode 6 of season 2 yet, go ahead and watch it. I honestly have no idea how this anime will top that episode. That episode was a perfect 10/10, especially if what was implied at the end is true. As someone who also has social anxiety and was forced to speak in public a few times, I can relate to how Ichikawa felt in this episode. Regardless, episode 6 was a huge character moment for him. His and Yamada’s relationship also leaped forward in this episode.
And that is basically why this anime has been so good. Romance animes are made by characters, not the plot. And that is essentially what this anime did. It greatly sped the frequency of character moments. Giving us amazing character development and along with that, it provided us with a steadily developing relationship to get behind, And if what I think happened in episode 6’s ending was true, we will see this relationship blossom even further soon.
And that’s for the “serious” side of things alone. This anime has also been doing great on the comedy front lately as well. Yamada’s father is the biggest and best example that comes to mind. Ichikawa’s thoughts on different matters and his cynical sense of humor are pretty entertaining as well. The comedy does a great job of balancing the heaviness of the all character moments and developments we’ve been getting recently. I just can’t put it any better, that is why I have been loving this anime recently and this week’s episode was the best episode of the series.
Well, so far anyway.
That is all for now!
Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. The Dangers in My Heart Season 2 gets an easy 9/10 from me as of now. I can’t wait to see what the 2nd half of this season holds. With that said, see ya!!
