Rimuru is back and tis time our little bouncing ball of slime is... well he's finishing off teaching and then returning home to get into some political trouble before taking on mass-extermination of an army. It's a busy time. Be sure to read the full review.
While nothing in this second season will change my opinion that season one of The Promised Neverland was an excellent, well crafted narrative that hit just the right emotional notes, there's no avoiding the fact that season 2 is pretty much everything season 1 wasn't and the end result is a less than satisfying mess. Be sure to read the full review and I'd love to know your thoughts on the series so leave me a comment. I will however warn there are spoilers for the final episode in this review which I would normally avoid but in this case I kind of feel I should spare people from having to watch this themselves so it is kind of needed.
I went into season 2 of Fruits Basket being warned not to set my expectations too high. That was probably a good thing but to be honest there's a lot to love in this follow up season that the original anime series never got.
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.
For I am the great and powerful Oz? I'm not entirely sure what this current sequence of Granblue episodes are going for though I did start wondering if I was in fact watching an anime or a slide show at one point in this episode.
Granblue Fantasy season 2 gives us another luke warm showing as the crew crash onto a misty island inhabited by friendly zombies.
Well it took the whole episode but we finally get a resolution to the Vira/Katalina story. Lots of things going boom this week but not a lot else to write about.
Way too much flashback on Vira and Katalina at this point. Largely because even though this time we had Vira's perspective it added little new knowledge. Here we are with Granblue Fantasy Seaon 2 Episode 4.
And episode 3 reminds us firmly this is based on a game as a character drops in for a scene and serves no purpose other than a soundboard and to remind us she exists. Oh well, it isn't like we expect any better from Granblue Fantasy at this point.
We're back with the second episode and I'd like to say that things are rolling along nicely but a lot of this episode is pretty anti-climatic. While things do get moving in the second half, there just isn't a lot going on this week.
