Season 1 synopsis: "Set in a small restaurant in the corner of a shopping district. The unusual eatery is only open after midnight, and its standard menu consists of just a single choice. However, the customers still come for the amusing chatter and the proprietor's willingness to cook any dish that they request. This drama depicts the lives of the restaurant's patrons, including a yakuza, an unsuccessful actor, a group of office ladies, a newspaper delivery boy, and a stripper. --Tokyograph" Edit Translation

As much as I loved the first season of Shinya Sokudou (I gave it a 9), Shinya Shokudo 2 may be better. The stories are slightly less predictable, and the acting improved.

You could watch season 2 without watching season 1, but I think season 2 may not be as good if you don't experience the connection that develops through season 1.

It follows the same formula as the first season. The story centers around a cafe/diner that is only open from midnight to until breakfast. Each episode focuses on the experiences of an individual patron and can be watched independently. However, the episodes in season 2 are slightly more connected than season 1 (just barely).

The mood is similar to season 1: melancholy and bittersweet.

Season 2 really feels like it may be the end of this drama, which kinda brought tears to my eyes.

It's quiet and reflective, so you have to be a person who likes that sort of thing and in the right mood to watch it.

To be honest, I wanted to watch this show/series because Odagiri Joe is in it and I had just finished watching "River’s Edge Okawabata Tanteisha" so I wanted to see more of him, and (again - honestly) I was in no way enticed by its popularity from Netflix, but I am so amazed by this magical show that really seems to have a life of its own; and season 2 of "Shinya Shokudo" is magic as well!

I'm amazed by each character's story, the different personalities of everyone in this series are so honest, genuine, unique, and very relatable. Not to mention, each character carries over well, if not tens of times better, from the first season as well! The cast is soothing to watch; though nothing was too dramatic or scary, I was mesmerized by this show's amazing cast of talented individuals! Each moment was filled with suspense at "what would happen next" within the separate stories, and towards the end you gradually became to understand just how everything connects.
