After Layla and Yuri have left Kaleido Stage, there are some openings in the troupe. Unfortunately, they have been filled with a couple of insufferable jerks. There is a new male lead with a god complex, named Leon. He is constantly degrading the other performers, and causing them to get hurt. The other is a Chinese girl named Mei. Mei is a loudmouth that is constantly challenging Sora, and telling her that she wasn't worthy to be Layla's partner. Sora's new competition makes her lose her way, and challenges her to become a greater performer than she has ever been. Sora will need the help of her friends to achieve her dreams. One would think that the legendary great maneuver was the pinnacle of acrobatics, but it was only a stepping stone for Sora on her way to becoming a true Kaleido Star.

This season picks up a short while after season 1 ends. The first 2 episodes are just a recap of season 1. You can start at episode 3 if you really don't want to watch a recap. The series is still as much fun as it was in the 1st half. I only have 1 complaint. The relationship between Sora and Ken doesn't develop at all. I was hoping that season 2 would take care of that, but it doesn't. I guess that they didn't think that was necessary for a show like this. The show has a TV-14 rating, but I don't think that is even close. I think it's suitable for 8 and up. There is a scene where Fool tries to grope Sora, but he gets shot down. It's good clean fun for everyone.

Another thing that I don't understand is why they dubbed one OVA episode and not the other. OVA 1 is about Rosette becoming a star as well. OVA 2 is about Layla. OVA 2 is only in Japanese. This series is really good. It lacks a few minor things that keep me from giving it 5 stars. It could have been much better if the Sora and Ken relationship was developed. That extra amount of drama would have helped a whole lot. But Kaleido Star is still very entertaining just the way it is.

I love it, and my 6-year-old girl is fascinated with the series! It is so beautiful to watch and cheer for Sora, the main character. The story is full of messages about trying your best, never giving up, and being confident in yourself. Perfect!

Kaleido Star is an anime series that sets its own rules from the start and then proceeds to use those rules to tell a coming of age story in a dramatic fashion. Season 2 starts with Sora now the leading performer at the Kaleido Stage, but for some reason the owner brings in a male lead who is emotionless and harsh to her, and then finds a former ice-skater who comes to the stage with the sole purpose of becoming the star and pushing Sora aside.

The series features a number of interesting "cirque de soleil" style acrobatic shows, although with the laws of physics cheerfully suspended. Sora and her compatriots on the stage perform trapeze acts that require one to stay in the air for nearly unlimited amounts of time. It's fun to watch, but any adult watching with young children will definitely want to remind them that this is not real life.

The animation itself is not the most technically advanced. There are no glaring mistakes, but the artists knew the story was the most important and did not try to overshadow.

This is not a series if you want a lot of violence, mecha, fighting or romance. It's a coming of age story as Sora overcomes a number of barriers, both within herself and thrown in her way by others as she grows as a star. I recommend this highly.

This was the definitly the better of the two seasons, and it all wrapped up nicely in a neat package in the end.

To put it simply. "Her wings were her dream and on towards the sky!"

After watching season 1 of "Kaleido Star" before, I was both intrigued and hesitant to try Season 2. The reason was because Season 1 ended so well and so powerfully complete that I was afraid that a Season 2 would wreck the vibe I had with the show. But finally, the personal need for completion, plus many of the positive reviews convinced me to give it a go. What I can say is this: After season 1, I had no clue how they could ever bring more to the show and step it up...BUT WELL, they did with new challenges, amazing character development that greatly expands on the characters from season 1, and a finale that surpasses Season 1's "Legendary Maneuver" in both "magic" and emotion. There were even new life lessons to learn. "Kaleido Star" season 2 is much more than a worthy extension of the series...it is a true completion of the entire storyline.

CONTENT ISSUES FOR PARENTS:
There is nothing to really worry about in this series, and specifically this season (since this is the specific one we are addressing). No fan service, no gravure, no provocative visuals, nor coarse language...totally clean (that was easy enough haha).

MOVING ON:

Where to begin, where to begin...By now, I'm sure you are fairly acquainted with the plot by looking through the synopsis and various other reviews. So I won't cover those kind of things. Instead, I'll mention what I found fascinating about this 2nd season. Season 1 dealt mainly with "rising to the top". But now that she's "made it", the 25 episodes of season 2 raises the question of "where do we go from here?" and "what is a true star?" I'm sure most of us have become top dog in various things, and I'm sure we've all wondered "is this all there is?" once we got there.
