Since I saw that Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi has finished airing, I went ahead and finished the second half of the series in one sitting.
The main focus of the story is developing the relationship between Morino Ryoushi and Ookami Ryouko. However, Ryouko acts like your typical tsundere who isn’t honest with her feelings for Ryoushi. As for Ryoushi, he still can’t handle people staring at him for the most part, which is both annoying and disappointing.
The open ending of the last episode essentially left the two most important elements of the plot unresolved: Ryoushi and Ryouko’s relationship, and the student council president of the delinquent school. Why is he still in power after kidnapping members of the Otogi Bank? I’m guessing probably more content for a possible sequel.
The parodies of well-known fairy tales was a nice touch, with almost every episode having its own story. Even though the characters didn’t really develop during the course of the series, a couple episodes were dedicated to the past histories of various members of the Otogi Bank.
However, I don’t believe there was any development or past history focus on Majo even though she is a member as well. Instead she adds to the randomness injected throughout the series. There are multiple scenes that serve no purpose except to maybe amuse the viewer.
Ookami-san contains many stereotypical “anime” aspects to it that I have grown weary of (a single personality trait defining each character that leads to overused memes), but it wasn’t all that bad.
