Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 1: Subaru and Isuzu are Still At It


Given I ended the season one review with a firm statement saying I was done with this show and not interested in a season two, it seems strange that as we go into the Autumn season that I was overcome with curiosity about what they were going to do in a second season. The final episode of season one ended dramatically with both brothers falling to Earth and I will admit, curiosity got the better of me.

There’s no apparent improvement on this from season one. We still have an okay story being buried under some fairly lame jokes that are missing the mark more than hitting, or are played overly long given the short episode run time. Here we get Subaru suffering from with withdrawal given his cockpit has essentially been destroyed. First we see him hyperventilating on the beach and then he rushes into the city (inexplicably knowing exactly where to go) and finding various substitutes for his cockpit with his brother in hot pursuit. The basic idea of him suffering because of the loss of the Durandel is fine, the length of the not quite seven minute episode that is eaten with this series of events is not given the decreasing returns in the humour.

However, this show does still remember how to make you want more of it despite its failings and the boys playing with the merchandise from the show and critiquing the Subaru model pilot was pretty well delivered before we get an introduction to a new character. Basically, if you made it through season one and are curious, check it out, otherwise this isn’t exactly a must watch.

  1. I really enjoyed the first ep of the new season but then again I enjoyed the previous season too so hardly a surprise. Like you said it’s more of the same and for some people that will be a bad thing and for others a good thing.

    1. More of the same isn’t really a problem, though I remember by the end of the last season of this I was very tired of it. The break has been good but I imagine I’ll probably feel kind of burnt out by the jokes by the end of this season as well. Still, curiosity is a dangerous thing and I do want to know what happens in the story.
