THE PLOT:

The evil is back and this terrorizing the swim team at an all girl school. After turning the Principal into a frog monster they commence with their own brand of twisted training and punishment.

But Kekko Kamen has also returned to right the wrongs and send the MGF packing once again or can she, they seem stronger and smarter then ever have been before, it's sink or swim time for Kekko Kamen.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I got to admit, this second movie is as good as the first. However it also has the same flaws as the first. One, no dubbed version and I'm no speed reader. So it's difficult to keep up with the plot in a subtitled version and two the Japanese censorship, this may be a Japanese movie but we ain't in Japan, so we can have full frontal nudity. I'm just saying, to sum up I really enjoyed this second installment. It was just as funny and as exciting as the first movie. As before I love the look and feel of the movie and the characters are well written and interesting and the whole concept really, really works. I was a fan of the anime and I am a fan of this movie series and can't wait for Kekko Kamen 3. So, to end my ramblings, I give Kekko Kamen 2: Kekko Kamen Returns, 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, Kekko is one of my heroes. I would love to be rescued by a hero dressed like she is. Good thing Mangriffon never uses guns. Also, I agree with the negative points. But I feel I should add one, Kekko may not appeal to every audience member. So, if you aren't a fan of the manga (comic), Anime show or the first movie. Then you may not like this one either. 9 STARS as well.

ON THE POSTIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (Just as good as the first movie.)
+ CHARACTERS (Just as good as the first movie.)
+ CAST (Does a great job.)
+ ACTION (Rarely dull.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- NO DUBBED VERSION (Which is better for people who aren't speed readers.)
- CENSORSHIP (The pubic area censorship is getting old. This is America, we demand an uncensored version!)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you are not a fan of the comic, cartoon or the first movie. Then we can't recommend this to you.)
