When it was announced that Yumeiro Pâtissière was going to have a sequel
series, I was quite looking forward to it, since the first series,
after getting off to a somewhat slow and predictable start, managed to
put together an interesting and lively group of characters, bound
together by the tight bonds of competition in the ruthless world of
making cakes. Who knew so much stress accompanied an occupation that
most people would associate with pleasure and indulgence?
The second series, of necessity, was to be an original creation of the animation production staff, since the original manga source material had already been leapt over during the course of the first series. For some people, this might already have signaled a cause for worry, but if the writing team has truly familiarized themselves with the characters, then who's to say that they might not come up with not only acceptable, but even praiseworthy scenarios for our characters to inhabit?
