The story is set one year later. Takatsuki Akira, Fukamachi Naoya, and Ubukata Ruiko become involved in mysterious disappearances that occures in different parts of Japan. These disappearances apparently are linked to Akira's past as the trio attempt to find out what happened when Akira was 12 and how he got his "perfect memory" ability.

"And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door..."

The repertoire of folk tales and mysteries has once again arrived...
I was disappointed to find out that it was only about 24 minutes long.
But, the story, as compared to the first, was much more powerful and compact.

It did not pull any punches and relied a lot more on the background of the characters, particularly Takatsuki Akira-sensei. It is this season which proves why he is the eponymous character of the show. We see a different side of his in this one and focusses on his emotions and vulnerabilities.

The story is still see through Fukamachi Naoya-san's eyes, but he is no longer as subdued as before. While he still has the requisites that come along with his "rare gift", he is much more in control of his emotions. Reiko-chan and Ken-chan tag along as usual and hasn't lost their essence from the first season. I appreciated both of them a lot in this one.

As usual, the strength of friendship is as strong as ever. And the emotional connection between Naoya-san and Akira-sensei is even more pronounced. It was heartwarming to see their raport develop from trepidation to trust.

There is a prominent antagonist - Hajime. Kudos to the actor for portraying a completely eccentric and psychotic personality. He really gave the lead mystery cracking team a run for their money.

The supernatural vibes is particularly undeniable and I can't wait to see how it gets wrapped up. As I've still not finished watching this, I am going to keep my expectations low when it comes to the ending.
But, all in all, this has become one of my favorite bingeworthy dramas.
