Was missing all of the things that made me love the first season. The whole dynamic of humans leveling up by killing monsters and monsters leveling up by killing humans, and the occasional introductions of new spells, weapons, threats etc just got put aside for this meandering pointless story. Then I went to Wikipedia and found out that the Author of the manga went deathly ill and had to stop making the comic, so essentially it was a whole season of filler
26 episodes. 13 hours of my life wasted... 1/5
The original Beet had kind of a crappy opening but really developed into a nice adventure/action show that reminded me a lot of Dragon Ball with some character designs reminiscent of Dragon Ball Z. I guess the writer/illustrator team that did this worked on a Dragon Quest manga, which is based off a game series with illustrations by Akira Toriyama (of Dragon Ball), so it all make sense in that these guys have been influenced quite a bit (even more than say Naruto). Regardless though, this is a crappy spinoff sequel series because the manga's been on hiatus since forever and they had nothing else to go off of. While the original has the Beet team traveling to loads of new locations with significant events happening, Beet and company are stuck in a really lame town here with an awful new character that's extremely annoying. You can also tell that the series is doing its best to make sure no one develops at all in order to mesh back into the original storyline if it should ever happen.
If you like goofy shonen adventure, stick with the original and skip this sequel series.
