Ahoy Captain Cats here and today I’m going to review the second season of a hidden gem of a series and that series is Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories season two.
The new season has the same setup, tone, atmosphere and memorable cast of characters that made this hidden gem of a series such a joy to watch. This new season also took a risk with the addition of guest actors in each episode and a few episodes some of the regular characters have their moment in the sun in terms of we learn more about their backstory and such. The payoff was great with each episode feeling like you just saw a mini-movie.
The only two bad things I have to say about Midnight Diner is that it’s in Japanese with subtitles, I don’t mind that but for others, it could be a deal-breaker for many and it’s one of the very rare series that you can’t sit down and binge-watch. Midnight Diner is a series that you have to sit down and take your time watching it just as you like eating your favorite dish and enjoy every moment and bite of it.
