"If you liked the original Comic Party anime series, you will like this. This story takes the same set of characters from the first series and puts them into college. The story is about a group of dojinshi (homemade comic books that pay homage to the author's favorite anime/manga/rpg/whatever) artists as they write, draw and publish their books and sell them at comic conventions. The animation is good quality, as is the voice acting on the Japanese language tracks. Do yourself a favor, however. Never, ever listen to the English dialog tracks. The English tracks contain some of the worst, most inappropriate voice acting I have every heard! It is so bad it is painful to listen to! Two of the main dojinshi artists are girls who are rivals, one a city girl who is a bit of a dimwit but is the "star" of the dojinshi world, and the other a rural girl from Northern Japan, who the first girl is alway putting down because of her countrified ways and "hick" accent. Since the dialectic differences are lost on an English audience, this difference could have been portrayed on the English tracks, as it was in Azimanga Dioh, by having one of the characters using a New England accent and the other one a Southern or Western accent. For some strange reason, ADV chose to have both voice actresses use a really bad, fake "New Yawk" twang. They sound like they are trying to do bad, loud Barbara Striesand imitations, which was so awful I couldn't stand to listen to more than a few minute of it before switching to the Japanese track and turning the subtitles on.
If you haven't seen the first Comic Party series, this story will not make any sense, so you will want to watch Comic Party before you watch Revolutions. If you heard rumors that Comic Party is based on an ero game (pornographic dating sim game) - the rumor is true, but there is little to be concerned of in the anime. The only "R" scene in Revolutions is one episode where the protagonist's girl friend poses au natural for a painting. All in all, this is enjoyable for Comic Party fans, so long as you never listen to the English track."
Not what I expected...

"If you've seen the first Comic Party season then this one will be disappointing. The Voice actors are all completely different and the characters even behave differently. It was very hard for me to watch this Anime. Nothing against the voice actors in this 2nd season Comic Party, they did a good job. But whenever you have a second season coming out you should ALWAYS use the same voices."
