Even after facing tons of criticism for being cliché and bland, Princess Connect! Re: Dive pulled through during the conclusion of its first season. This resulted in the show gaining popularity among fantasy anime lovers.
Other than fantasy and adventure, the anime plays around with the gourmet theme as the protagonist Yuki and his friends aim to explore Landsol and the delicacies it has to offer.
In short, the anime has a pretty wholesome vibe, but its origin story is the complete opposite.
Yuki suffers from amnesia and has no recollection of the brutal fight before he ended up in Landsol.
While he is satisfied with his current life, Yuki still remains curious about his past. The anime has now been revived for a second season to dig deeper into Yuki’s previous life.
Princess Connect! Re: Dive has released a delightful yet melancholic PV for season 2 which is slated to premiere on January 10, 2022.
The PV teases some of the most endearing and happy scenes of Yuki, Pecorine, Kokkoro, and Karyl enjoying their time together and eating some delish meals.
In between these happy times, dreadful scenes from a bloody fight are flashed in black and white.
I’m not sure if the scenes are from a previous battle or a one that’s waiting to happen, but it doesn’t look good in any way.
Being a light-hearted watch, we rarely expect such brutal scenes from the anime, but let me remind you that it also comes under the shonen genre.
As the characters’ smiles become broader and softer, the trailer flashes more ruthless images. In the end, Kokkoro is seen greeting Yuki at the break of dawn.
As I wait for the upcoming season and the show’s comforting characters and plot, I am scared yet curious to see how the battle part plays out.
Is Mana Senri up to something wicked again? Or is it Yuki’s memories coming back to him? We’ll just have to wait and find out.
