The Sucker Punch, the follow-up to the surprise hit The Squid’s Deal, is a film that promises to be the best of its type since the original. The plot revolves around a man (Zackapa) who owns a company manufacturing a new type of cleaning liquid called Scissor Seven. The scissor, after gaining publicity, starts to make waves in the business world. A woman (Lori Singer) who works as a cashier develops an attraction towards the scissor, which lands her in trouble. Will the company go under, or will it recover?
As the movie progresses, more information about the company and its main product is revealed. Apart from the background of the protagonist, the cast also gets more time to add some spice to their relationships. The romantic subplot involving two of the main characters, Rafe and Lauren, also gives the viewer some insight into their emotions for one another. At the same time, more romantic subplots involving the other characters are explored, bringing back the element of surprise.
It is now that the second season of Sucker Punch has concluded. In the past, the anime series had focused more on the plot of how Rafe and Lauren got together. However, the second season also gives us a little insight into what the company is really all about. We get to learn more about the organization, their origin, and about their secret plan for the next stage of their development. In short, the story evolves and expands in a logical direction. This makes the entire series more realistic than its predecessor, The Squid’s Deal, which failed to provide much content worthy of the hype it created.
Despite the lack of significant content, the second season of Sucker Punch is still very enjoyable to watch. The animation is still great. I especially enjoyed how the art style of the series evolves throughout the seasons. The style becomes more modern as it moves forward in its storyline, and I personally liked how the colors and environments of the series looked.
In the beginning of the first season, the anime fans could have probably sensed that the release date for the third season was fast approaching. It was a bit surprising, but fans started speculating that the release date would be nearer when the first episode was aired. Well, it seems the release date has finally been set, and fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
The release date for Sucker Punch is still at least two months away. This is quite a long wait, especially for a fan who was expecting it to begin after the conclusion of the first season. The release date will probably be followed by another Japanese sci-fi movie called Ghost in the Shell. The plot of the movie is about a cyborg who travels back in time. This is obviously a very important part of the Chinese mythology, and Sucker Punch will definitely make fans wait for the sequel. In fact, some fans have already started speculating about what they’ll be watching in the sequel.
For the time being, fans can already enjoy the first three episodes of Sucker Punch, which are directed by Katsuhiro Nomura. The first episode features a very mysterious man (Yoshiyuki Toyooka) whose past is briefly revealed. We also get to see what happens between him and Masamune Shirowchi, the original male lead of the series. In the next episode, the anime fans will also be introduced to another new character named Yuusuke Tozu. He plays a crucial role in the story, and his relation to Masamune is quite complicated.
Another popular character from the anime series is the beautiful and mysterious Ayame where in Sucker Punch was previously focused. With the new season 3, the story will delve deeper into her background and what exactly happened there. I am pretty sure that we will learn more about what happened to the love interest of Masamune. Other new characters that are sure to be part of the anime series include Keiji Fujioka, Momo Sugiuchi, Yuichiro Nagashima, Katsuaki Shizuka, Chiaki Matsubara, and finally Ayumitsu Mitsuda.
