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.
Those Who Would Call Themselves Hero One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 9 The dashing Saitama comes racing to the rescue and saves the day. Well, not quite. Saitama does get his amazing entrance in his hero costume and Suiryu is suitably impressed by the entrance of his saviour. However, a one punch fight is … Continue reading One Punch Man Review Season Two Episode Nine
The Hero And The Pretender One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 7 The S Class heroes are finally on the move against the monsters, not that the audience or One Punch Man cares given how little screen time the catastrophe striking multiple cities is given.

The Spring Anime season is upon us and over and over again I've been seeing blog posts discussing how this season is a slow season or a poor season in terms of anime. I don't necessarily disagree but at the same time I'm actually having fun with the season even if a lot of what … Continue reading Is The New Season of One Punch Man Disappointing?

Season one overcame this by … Continue reading One Punch Man Season 2 Review Episodes 1 + 2
