Finally gotten around to watch this. And then I completely at loss on what’s going on. I probably should’ve rewatched Zoku (or even from the first season) beforehand.
So, apparently it continues straight off from the end of second season. Which is five years ago.
I even forgot that the original season has way better character design.
It also feels closer to the original Ponkan-8 design.
Oh well, at this point story takes priority and I’ll just march on. And maybe get around reading novel one day.
