More Comedy...less story

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Orphen Season 1 gets 5 stars...unfortunately season two only gets 4. Season has a story, but the viewer must find it amongst the comedy. Orphen, Magic, Cleo and Leki (voiced by the same voice actors from the first Orphen) are going to some hot springs for a little R & R. Once they reach the resort town they discover that no one wants to give them any shelter. Also a mysterious glasses-dependent girl is following them, she wants Orphen's help (the reason is never made clear in any of the four episodes). Volkin and Dortin still refuse to pay their debt and someone is out to get Orphen...but who and why?
The animation is NOT as good as the first. The characters seem to have lost weight and look more cartoonish. What I find strange is that when Orphen uses his powers the background is reminiscent of some 60's psychedelic drug-induced vision. The outtakes are a special treat (I enjoyed their references to "American Pie" and Eddie Murphie's "The Nutty Professor").
If your an Orphen fan you will enjoy it but if your not familiar with Orphen I STRONGLY suggest you watch the first season before you see season two. Enjoy the story and small touches of humor of season one before you dive into the comedy saturated season 2.
If you're a parent, its best not to let your small children see this (the opening sequence has Orphen and Cleo in bed together, the first comedic sequence soon follows) and the language used in the outtakes are best appreciated by a mature ear."
