5/10 - How the Mighty have fallen.

Since the reviews here are all extremely positive, and since I watched the last two seasons back to back, I'm gonna review them both.

(1) This stage is more dedicated to the development and growth of Keisuke. Since Takumi's unpredictable talent and dynamic races was what I loved, I felt a bit bored now and then.

(Also Keisuke looked read more

The characters have various diffrent personalities and some get good character development.

Animation is fluid, character design and general art is good.

Sound: 8/10
Good opening and ending theme but the OST is not as good as before but still very good.

Enjoyment: 8/10
