About To Heart 2 Blu-ray
To Heart 2 contains season two episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Norihiko Sudo.
Sometimes life leads us in circles. Sometimes it takes us on strange detours. Takaaki and Konomi have been friends since they were kids, but now that they're in high school, Takaaki's finding out the fact that he's a boy and she's a girl can change everything, especially since there are a lot of other attractive girls who are also suddenly demanding his attention. Between the Himeyuri twins: electronics geek Sango and brash Ruri; the awkward class representative Manaka; mystery loving Karin; mountain biker Yuma; the mysterious Yuki; and even Lucy, who's convinced that she's an alien, Takaaki's not sure which way to turn. And when his OTHER female childhood friend, Tamaki, arrives having changed so much from attending an exclusive boarding school that the others barely recognize her, things are really going to get romantically complicated!

Ratings & Reviews
Finally this series sees a US release.. Interesting since it's from 2005 and gets a release in 2017 12 years later.
This is the sequel of To Heart.. another VN originally released by Leaf (Aquaplus) and is probably still the King of Harem titles... with something like 19 heroines and 1 main character.. if you factor in expansions.
So this is a Harem title.. and unfortunately does show it's age and the blu-ray port tends to make the animation quality more apparent.
Another thing worth noting is that none of the OVAs are present with this release.. so certain characters do not appear.
I enjoyed this title back in 2005 and as a fan of the original VN it's nostalgic.
A let down after watching the Original To Heart
by ejs -
The original To Heart was a very nice laid back slice of life that even had a good ending (for anime). It was slow moving but had a sweetness to it. It made me happy.
To Heart 2 has none of the charm or sweetness of the original. A couple characters like Multi and Aoi have cameo appearances (for 2 seconds) during the cultural festival episode, but in general To Heart 2 has nothing in common with To Heart. The only similarity is that the main character in each show (Hiroyuki and Takaaki) are kind hearted and always looking out for others. This kindness gets them into all kinds of interesting but random situations. Both shows try to tie together all these random events into something cohesive. To Heart 2 fails on this front.
The bluray quality of this is also terrible. It's 1080i instead of 1080p and likely up-scaled somehow from 480i. It's one of the worst transfers to bluray I've ever seen.
