What can I say..... high and low part 2 carried on its legacy....!!! excellent fight scenes, nice action and lets not forget, eye candies..... good looking, silent, dangerous type guys who all fight well.... the story is well defined.... just because its about gangs and delinquents, you wont see any kind of random fighting ( you know like some dramas and movies, people start fighting because someone banged into them)... The gangs read more have its own policy that brings the members closer...

S - protects ... a home to come back to
W - protects women
O - well, its a high school... kids fight for no reason... but still you wont see them fighting outside aimlessly.
R - protects family
D - crazy people... but still has an aim... and i like the lead...

for anyone who wants to see some nice fighting, welcome to the world of high and low.... (watch season 1 before you start season 2)..

waiting for the movie to get subbed.... fighting :D :D :D

I got wrong prediction in this season. I thought it will be more action scenes after the first season that really firing me up like an appetizer before the main story. Season 2 is just like another appetizer, the action scenes only around 20% from the entire episodes. But don't get me wrong, it's still a pleasant one to watch but I didn't get that much hype with all those bunch of read more flashback and sentimental moments.

Like what I said, mostly are flashback stories of Mugen's main member and other histories of each gang.The more their stories revealed, the more new faces appeared too. There are more familiar actors that also featured in this season. Beside that, there is more additional gang that never be mentioned before in the first season. Season 2 is just like another season 1 but with more detail about identity of each main member of each gang. There is repetition scenes here about childhood of Mugen's main member, it's okay but if considering the duration only around 20 mins, it's a waste. I believe it can be filled with another story. So it feels a bit slow at the some beginning of episodes, but thanks for the good looking casts and the editing (also the music) I can patiently and excitedly follow their stories.

Since all the gangs already revealed (I hope all gang names already mentioned in this season, including Mighty Warrior & Doubt, maybe Later a group from Lee/Seungri), now everything must be piled up together in one line. But It's kinda look choppy, they keep back and forth from one gang to another just to tell a small amount of story. It would be nice if they tell an exact story from a certain gang in a decent length duration. Let's say in 20 minutes only about 2 gangs with 1 main story, just like they did in the first season. It's not happen a lot only in the some of beginning of episodes. Too many LDH actors that need to be appeared in the drama huh?

All the gang leaders's past stories are reviewed again except Daruma Ikkka and Rude Boys. Why? yes, why?? I yelled in dissapointment after I finished watch this drama. Season 2 didn't tell more detail
about Hayashi Kento (as Hyuga, leader of Daruma Ikka) and Kubota Masataka (as Smoky, leader of Rude Boys). It's not only that, even both of them didn't appear in this season, they didn't has any line.
They only appear in 1 or 2 seconds from the past scenes. Really too bad, they're are one of the reason why I like this series. Well, I guess it's their intention tho, they want to emphasize their own actors (LDH actors) rather than the real actors. If so, then how about Yamada Yuki? He's not LDH actor but he got decent amount of screen time.

If we talk about visual, sure H&L is still one of the best, they got nice looking actors, cool properties, detailed settings and good POV. So that's why it's a waste that they decrease the amount of fighting
scenes. Well, seems like this season still wants to tell more about friendship and family thing between them. Season 2 still using the same music from the previous season. They added 2 or 3 new songs tho, if my ears not wrong. But the intensity of the music is not as much as the first season. "Maria" and "Forever Young At Heart" were played a lot, because there are a lot of sentimental moments in the beginning of episodes.

Overall was fine with new faces and new stories. It also hints another new face for the next HiGH&LOW: The Red Rain. Also a glimpse of what will happen in the HiGH&LOW: The Movie.

Personal corner:
Can I talk a bit about how perfect Yamada Yuki here? Yes, I can say that he is the best actor here. Even thought he didn't appeared that much, I can tell his presence is really strong. The way he delivered his line along with his expression, it's just - - - wow! yeah! :D

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

The story revolves around several high school delinquents fighting to become the "top", but includes some romance and a more humorous tone as the main protagonist is a weak fighter with a strong will to never give up. The main cast of Sugarless are some of the same LDH talents that are in the HIGH&LOW series such as Shirahama Alan, Sano Reo, Machida Keita, Suzuki Nobuyuki, and Sato Taiki. The drama also has the same time format with each episode spanning around 20 minutes or so.

    This second season let me down a lot, the first half was unnecessary super slow, they dragged on way too much with the flashbacks. This should've been like one or two episodes at best. But the worst thing was the Mighty Warriors team itself, awful characters all around. They were trying way too hard with the "street american rap" style or whatever it was, and that Ice/Elly guy's way of speaking, moving, his face mimics... everything he did just irritated me to no end. I ended up skipping all of their scenes and it made the thing much more enjoyable. Still a shame.

    But the last few episodes (7->10) were good, with more humors like the first season and other nice stuff. It's just a shame they're ALWAYS reusing so much footage-we've-already-seen when reintroducing teams, feels a bit lazy.

    Ok, it was a good season but not as good & consistent as season 1.
    The first half was interesting in some ways but overall, wasn't looking for it. The second half sloooooow but thanks god eps 8 was AWESOME and the last eps hyped the movie so much I can't handle. On a whole, the season was really good coz it had epic moments that keeps the love hiiiigh for me ^^

      well there is the difference.. when the name Exile Tribe pops up it refers to whole member and group. there are 3 groups: Exile, J soul brothers and Generations. and 1 trainee group, the rampage who have yet to debut.
      But Exile only is the part of tribe
