Animenewsnetwork - In my review of the first episode I expressed concerns about the series going down a worrisome path with Chitoge realizing her feelings for Raku. This episode dodges that entirely by simply never having her appear at all. In fact, episode 2 is literally a three-person show: only Raku, Seishiro, and new character Paula McCoy (the pale-haired girl in the opener) appear in it. Even background characters never appear, as the venues where the action take place might as well be happening in a setting otherwise devoid of people. That doesn't mean the potential problem with the series getting bogged down by Chitoge's new feelings has gone away; it has just been delayed.
