My Thoughts

The first season of this show was my favorite anime in the Toonami lineup back in 2019, and so my brother GC & I were disappointed when this season ended up being clearly worse than the first season.

This season did not even make my top three anime of the year, so far, this season came & went with little impact compared to the first season; it just did not live up the tension et cetera of the first season.

The ending of this season felt very rushed & things fell in place magically in a way that just seemed to fake / forced, and it was just a bad ending without enough emotional impact.

This season felt like it was partly made by someone else, and like it did not have enough source material to follow (like Game Of Thrones final season) or that they skipped a lot of source material.

This season was not terrible as a show, it was just lacking & emptier compared to the previous season, my brother GC & I both agree that this show deserved a better season than this.

We both recommend only watching the first season, this season was still better than the last season of Game Of Thrones, but it is similar to that shows final season in the sense that it hurts the show overall in my opinion.

I think that it is better to avoid this season to avoid that, which may be a bit unfair because this season was not terrible (it was not good either), but that is how my brother GC & I feel about this season personally.

The end,
