been three months after the Moral incident and the existence of
'Minimum Holders', people with supernatural abilities, has gone
public. As the Hamatora agency continues to take odd jobs involving
minimum holders, they not only face a paranoid public but must also
face their former friend and police inspector Art who has come back
from the grave and is now stealing the abilities of minimum holders
Hamatora: Season 2
Even with the fact Minimum Holders have become
public knowledge, the Hamatora Agency continues to protect the normal
humans from Minimum Holder crimes and the government continues to
train, use and abuse those with powers. As the prejudice and fear
continues to grow between those with power and those without, a new
order and threat has appeared, former friends are now enemies.
However, everything points back to government's secret agenda for the
creation of Minimum Holders.
This series was like a anime
version of X-Men with a plot. In truth, what would happen if
people suddenly discover there are mutants, psychics, or espers? How
would society change? Even if people accepted there are those with
powers would they become jealous, afraid? Unfortunately, humankind
has been know more to abuse and use their abilities than to live in
peace with them and governments ALLOW fear and terror to exist, so
they have an excuse to control the public by any means they wish.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is pretty good
throughout all episodes, but not up to the best Sentai releases,
while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) Japanese 2.0 Stereo sound
bests the English dub and is the playback highlight as the set with
Pro-Logic-like surrounds if you wish. Extras include clean opening
and closing animations, Japanese promos and disclaimers, and
