Anyone who doesn't own this series is missing out. While the first half of season 2 starts slow you can feel the dramatic buildup as Sora struggles to find what kind of star she is. Sora is cheerful and kind and she sees the best in others. She is optimistic and she sees the world not as it is but as it should be. If real people were like her this would be a great world to live in. She cares about others and she wants to create a stage with no competition a stage where people can be the best they can be and bring that greatness alive in others. Sora undergoes grueling trials and the most awe inspiring training sequence ever animated. She inspires other characters to greatness and viewers as well! This anime is the perfect anime to inspire young girls to be great and be the best they can be. Absolutely no sexual suggestiveness or swearing or graphic violence nonetheless this anime has appeal to all people who love good characters and a good story. Sora's trials inspired me I went on a diet and began to exercise, I got some muscle tone now and I am planning a thru hike to the Appalachian trail even as I complete my college degree. Before I watched this anime I never believed I could finish college, I didn't think I would ever be strong, and I was growing older and wider without a fight. Sora even though she is animated made me believe in myself and motivated me to make my dreams come true. I highly recommend this anime to all girls 13 to 80! I'm 29 years old and this anime is very dear to me because it teaches us to believe in ourselves and do our best and it teaches us to believe in others. In a world where no one believes in anything anymore, I would say that is quite an accomplishment for a simple cartoon.Read more ›

I remember when I first saw Kaleido Star. An anime about a circus like Cirque du Soleil? It was like somebody read my mind and decided to give me exactly what I wanted. Acrobatics, sweet animation from the people who worked on Angelic Layer, strong characters, and terrific voice acting made it well worth watching. It was however, not without flaws.

Kaleido Star's biggest problem was the VERY uneven flow of the series, and MASSIVE amounts of filler. You could of course argue that many episodes were just giving you more detail about various characters, but in reality it was just padding out a 13 episode series to 26. Several times I seriously wondered where the show was going, and not in a good way. The show pretty near de-railed when Kaleido Stage was sold and divided, and the whole Masked Star Saga in particular really bored me. What I did love though, were episodes that focused on characters I loved (like the first episode with Rosetta, and Layla's thawing out when she was first forced to work closely with Sora), and anything to do with the Great Maneuver sub-plot. And when the show finally got around to the big finale and all that led up to it, it provided some of the best anime drama I have ever seen (Sora being ready to quit on the special training and then seeing Layla out running and starving herself to lose weight to make it easier for her had me crying, to say nothing of the very end of Kaleido Star's first season when Layla gave up Kaleido Stage and told Sora that she was her dream now).

When I heard about another season (another series?) of Kaleido Star I had mixed feelings. Would it be a light-hearted continuation? Would it be uneven like the first season? I thought about it a long while and then finally got around to renting it. Oh... My... Goodness!

After coming out of an amazing first season, season 2 starts off pretty badly. First off, you can skip the 2 recap episodes which don't even add anything besides a new edited ending. Furthermore we see the loss of two awesome characters, Layla and Yuri, for the first half and get some pretty bad new character replacements, May Wong and Leon Oswald.

So why did I rate this 5 stars, after all the feelings of animosity towards the newcomer characters, it just makes you more attached to the anime, because of how angry we are getting. So when we finally see Sora able to shine the feelings this anime will produce will be amazing.

We have seen Sora struggle in the first season, but her struggle this season is way greater and we see some big time failures for the first time. For a character to lose so many times, it's refreshing to see. It gets tiring to see the main character always win every battle like in all the shonen animes.

Ultimately, the first half may be a bit slow but if you believe in the build up it builds, then it will be on par with the first season. And a lot of people say this show is for girls, but I think its more for everyone. It has a girlish theme but it plays out very much like a shonen.

Kaleido Star returns from season one as Sora truly learns what it takes to become a true Kaleido Star in "Kaleido Star: New Wings." As Kaleido Star begins to suffer from the loss of Layla Hamilton, famous circus performer Leon Oswald is hired to perform to try to attract more audiences. Sora also receives a new rival, May Wong, who claims that she is the next true Kaleido Star and competes with Sora for main roles and Leon's attention. Does Sora really have what it takes? In this season two box set, you get all 25 episodes of season 2 plus a bonus episode on the last disc. But is it really worth your time and money?

This next season presents itself with stunning animation, exciting acrobatic maneuvers, and excellent acting that surpass the first season. The English dub is also very good if you're a dub watcher. There is very good character development and lots of action that will keep you into watching the season all the way through. With lots of suspense and action, it really keeps you going. By the end, however, if you compare it to the first season, you may be slightly disappointed. The general plot is really weak. It starts off good with the introduction to May and Leon, and in the first 13 episodes is really about Sora struggling to make it big with May landing the lead roles and Leon refusing to acknowledge her as a performer. It's really good. At one point, Sora questions her ability as a performer and is confused about what her dream truly is at Kaleido Stage. However, the next last 12 episodes focuses on constantly suffering to try to perfect the Angel Maneuver, the maneuver that will make you acknowledged as a true star.
