‘Megalo Box 2: Nomad’, Episode 2 – Review

The spirit of perseverance and fearlessness that thrives within Joe is beautifully showcased in the second episode of ‘Megalo Box 2: Nomad’. The first season of ‘Megalo Box’ focuses more on the occurrence of fixed matches, but the second season is filled with proper, gruesome, underground megalo boxing matches.

As the second episode of ‘Megalo Box 2: Nomad” has been released, it is confirmed that the audience has loved the episode as much as they loved the first one; maybe more! Let us start by discussing the way the series has been animated. The animation work has been made really grainy – probably to focus on a particular aesthetic and to get an 80’s or 90’s vibe. This setting is really striking as no other Anime series of 2021 makes use of such an animation.

Next, let us go through the plot of the second episode. ‘Megalo Box 2: Nomad’ introduces the new characters and starts off with the tournament in just two episodes. It is just remarkable to see so much happening by the second episode. This makes the audience wonder what more do the creators of ‘Megalo Box 2: Nomad’ have in store for them. The detestable and contemptible Nanbu is introduced. But, it is expected that Joe and Nanbu’s relationship will improve.

It will be fun to see how both of them improve their bond as they fight for a position at the top of the Megalonia Tournament. Although interesting characters like Fujimaki and his mob come into play, the audience seems more interested in getting to know about Nanbu’s past life. As the new cast is being introduced, the audience wonders when they will get to see the old, recognizable faces from the first season. Although, they are quite positive that the character of Sachio will make an appearance very soon!

The viewers and fans cannot wait for the main plot of Anime television and web series to unravel. It feels as though they do not wish to wait a whole week to watch a new and exciting episode of ‘Megalo Box 2: Nomad’.
