The Devil is a Part-Timer Season 2: Curl, the Monkey Paw Does.

While it is a minor miracle that this show even got a second season, the joy at that happening doesn’t mean it gets a free pass for what it actually is. I am not a harsh critic here at Shallow Dives in Anime, but I also don’t pull my punches. If something doesn’t work, then it doesn’t work. I won’t call it an abomination or the worst thing to ever happen, but I won’t look the other way either.

It could be argued, rightly or wrongly, that the internet and modern online culture has destroyed the idea of just enjoying your hobby. If you dive yourself into the cesspit of social media, often liking something or enjoying something puts you on one end of the culture war. No longer can people like something, instead you have to make it part of your personality, or defend it against any and all accusations. It’s a difficult and stressful time if you care about such things.

So it is nice when shows like this come out and fully embrace just loving what you love, regardless of any implications or inferences. After the cut, let’s take re-dive into the series Knights & Magic.
