So you're probably asking whether Orient: Awajishima Gekitou-hen is good, or if it's worth watching.

Opinion written after the anime was completed

Continuing the story of Orient, the Bushi group still goes out there to take down the demons. And that's about most of it in this season...

There's definitely this feeling of disappointment in me upon finishing this second season of Orient. The story was quite good at the beginning, fairly enjoyable and still giving similar vibes with the first season, like this sort of pumped up vibe.

Then right around the second half, there's a strangely noticable change of pace. The plot started to feel more rushed, and the progression seemed unnatural, almost like 'staged' kind of unnatural. Or probably like 'convenient' kind of unnatural.

Things became a tad harder to understand, and thus not as easy to follow, and that made me feel weird while watching this anime. Basically, things throughout the second half of Orient Part 2 felt forced. Although, this might be personal, so maybe still take that with a grain of salt.

The reason I found that disappointing is because the first season had a relatively great plot overall. Though, yeah, there were some pace inconsistencies as well, but still pretty good. The execution here felt a little...lacking.

The art quality also wasn't anything to brag about. In fact, it was lacklustre.

In the first season, the colourful visual effects and animation may have been an okay way to introduce the Orient series. There wasn't really anything significant added in the second season.

Unfortunately, the art, and particularly the animations, were pretty much average.

With all that being said, however, it was fairly enjoyable, I would consider this anime as a whole package good. While it's subjective whether Orient Part 2 is worth watching or not, I'd say it's at least worth a try. You might like it, or you might not.
