Re Hamatora: Season 2 (2015/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B Sound: B+ Extras: C Episodes:

It's 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 in Re Hamatora: Season 2 (2015).

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.

The 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 trailers.
