Most of us agree that the first episode had some pacing issues that skipped all of the build up. However, episode 2 definitely makes it up for it with our focus on both the inner workings of the TV world and Yousuke’s other self. While the show does move at a fast pace it should be noted that the events that they used, like the scene with the stalker talking to Yukiko or the talk at the end with Yousuke and Yu willing to solve what is going on, makes the show flow better. There were some interesting use of details with Yousuke’s other self scene like the video of the Junes workers and Saki’s confession that help push the fact of Yousuke’s problems that wasn’t shown in the game. Despite one of the animators complaint on twitter, the show still look great and the battle scene with Izanagi and Shadow Yousuke was really well choreograph. It also should be noted that Yu was a lot more talkative and more forward than before, guess that point of courage has helped out. This weeks episode also features the real Opening and Ending. The opening offers interesting visuals and concepts of the series using imagery and styles along with some funky music. The Ending may be a bit simple with Yu standing in a circle of cards and a more slow pacing music but it works for what is trying to do. Our first two members of our yet to be call investigation team has formed and now it is time to go deeper in to the TV land as the next episode shows that Yukiko’s and Chie’s problems will manifest themselves soon. Investigation team, GO.

I agree, the second episode was better than the first for a lot of reasons, from the general pacing to Yu's more involved nature.
