Argentosoma Vol. 2: Getting Even

» written by Dark Wind [Discuss]

Synopsis
The alien attacks continue, and the elite force known as FUNERAL are called out to defend earth again and again. Tensions rise as both Ryu and Dan dislike one another and come to blows. Then comes the added problem of using a child to help FUNERAL, and the team is guilt-ridden. And then…we delve into someone’s forgotten past.

Review
I really enjoyed the first volume of 5 episodes. Mysterious, intriguing, and excellent characters help to propel this series above many others I’ve seen this year. This volume strengthens that argument. This is another excellent 5 episodes, with more subtle hints of things to come, and some much-needed explanation to help forego the last volumes huge confusion factor. The characters are more fleshed out, Frank is given much more screen time, and everything is starting to fall into place.

The Breakdown
What can I say? I’m commited. This show is breathtaking. I love it and there aren’t enough adjectives to use to explain how much I’m enjoying each volume of this show. It’s brimming with intrigue, style, and a good story to boot. Not to mention Ryu Soma is now starting to  doub his thirst for revenge…

 

» The Pros
The excellent sense of depth. You just know that this show offers a lot, and we are only beginning to see and peel away each layer, ever so slowly. The characters are amazing, and despite what you may think at first glance as an action show, it is in actuality an excellent character introspection. Don't let my words fool you though. This show definitely offers the action, in spades. And when it does, it just looks beautiful. The SARG mechs looks big and ominous, and the faceless aliens give that much more of an odd sense of doubt if these aliens are our true enemies. I'm just starting to understand.

» The Cons
The ambiguity. At points, it's overtly mysterious, in the annoying 'just tell me what's going on now' type of thing. You'd think they could have told us something more by now, but sadly, only a few things are explained. Thankfully, Hattie now has a legitimate reason to be dumb, so that problem is out of the way. Other than that, I find no real problems with this show.

Reviewed in Vol. 1.

I, for some reason, did not like the music as much as I did in volume 1. It just didn't stand out to me anymore.

» Story

This score has also changed now, because now it's being to silly in it's mystery.

If you liked the first volume, you will love this volume. If not...well, then don't think you'll like this one either.

A nice cover with Dan lookign off to the side in his SARG suit and a smaller Ryu Soma looking ominously in his own SARG suit. The reversibel cover is also nice, with Ines looking off with her arms outstretched, and then Hattie in a cute '70's style jacket saluting at us.
