To say that the second season of DanMachi doesn't quite match the high energy fun of season one would be an understatement. However, we do get some important world building and character introductions so the question is whether that's enough for a season.
A sickly sweet ending but one that I kind of appreciated. Irina and I discuss the final episode of DanMachi season 2.
Weird choices all round with DanMachi launching into another story with only two episodes to go. Hestia puts her foot in her mouth and gets royally shot down by Bell which leads to an interesting turn of events, but is there really time to properly introduce new characters and get any kind of satisfactory resolution here?
The war is on with Freya familia moving in. However, that is almost a side note as Bell stands by Haruhime against overwhelming odds. Irina and I share our thoughts on episode 10 of DanMachi.
Bell and Mikoto really rise to the challenge in front of them this week as the attempt to save Haruhime is on. While others are moving in the background, Bell and Mikoto are currently a two man army taking on the Ishtar familia.
I'm just wondering how often Bell either breaks or loses his armour. No offence to Welf, but he really needs to design something a little more sturdy. It would be interesting to see just how many sets of armour Bell has now gone through but he most definitely lost this set yet again.
Episode 7 picks things up a bit after episode 6 did the set up for the new arc. Bell is trying to figure out his role as a hero without dragging his family into the mess, Hermes is just hoping he hasn't made a big mess, and Ishtar is about to make her move.
I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this episode which isn't overly surprising given how I felt about this particular story in the light novels. It felt bloated and the danger felt fairly farcical compared to some of the situations Bell had been in. That said, I have been curious about how the anime … Continue reading DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 6 – A Different Kind of Adventure
This week's question is pretty straight forward but it does put me on the spot as I'm having to try to put an overall feeling into words. Hopefully I convey the idea well enough.
An episode to bridge the gap between the war game and the next arc might mean a slowing of the pace but it also means a chance to spend some time with the Hestia familia in its newly expanded form. We've got toasts, bath scenes and crippling debt to go around in episode 5 of DanMachi.
