As you may be able to tell from its title, Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara Second Season is the second anime adaptation of the magical girl manga written by Sui Futami.
Kazuhiro Yoneda returns as the director for the second season, which was once again produced at the Pine Jam studio. The show aired as part of the autumn 2016 season as a series of shorts, and both seasons are available on Crunchyroll.

This review will be a short one, mostly because Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara‘s second season is just more of the same. Yuzuka is as reluctant about her magical girl powers as ever, Chiya continues to be obsessed with Yuzuka and Miton is there simply to get abused.
For those who feel betrayed by particular magical girl mascots – particularly from more recent shows – there may be some catharsis in watching a mascot suffer.
Unlike in the first season, Yuzuka actually ends up with a valid reason to use her magical girl powers – it’s only once, though and towards the end of the season. Yuzuka’s father gets an episode to himself, and he continues to be a workaholic.
Everything else, though, is pretty much standard cute girls doing cute things fare.
There isn’t really too much more to say about this show – each episode is about 4 minutes long (including the opening), so there isn’t really a lot happening in each episode. As such, it is possible to get through the entire season in less than an hour.
Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara‘s second season is a slight improvement over its first, but not by too much. It’s still about cute magical girls doing cute things, with episodes that might just not be long enough.
Quiet Girl is still best girl and seeing Onsokyubey suffering is indeed therapeutic.
