A great continuation to an already great series...
The anime's main flaw is actually the art and animation, character designs are really basic and are constantly recycled throughout the anime, backgrounds look terrible and the effects seem cheap and out of place; in addition the animation is very rough and has very little flow which makes the show seem like a coloured manga with voice acting and music rather than an actual anime. However, when it comes to sound, this anime is fucking phenomenal! The OP is probably one of the best this season (Both OPs probably top 20 this year) and the soundtrack is
perfect for every scenario; but we can't continue without mentioning the voice acting which is fantastic and helps to bring these characters to life and repairs the flaws created by the mediocre and borderline bad art and animations!
The continuation to this already very intriguing story has been continued to be excecuted well and eventhough no major plot points have happened yet in the first episodes; there is nothing I can fault either. Furthermore, the characters are fucking great! I love EVERY character in the anime and most of them get a decent amount of development; it also helps that there are constant comedic moments throughout the show that make you love the characters even more. I also love how eventhough we get to see the funny side of most characters (especially the 2 main characters and even some "villains") every single character is a badass at will and the transition from comedy to drama is done very well, it's Gintama-like.
Golden Kamuy's second season has delivered in every aspect aside from the dodgy animation/art and because of that it's definitely a top 10 anime this season (maybe even top 5).
PS: Sugimoto is probably one of the most badass MCs you will see this year!
Continuing from an already amazing first season, the second season does not disappoint at all. Even though the start to this season is very slow, I believe it was a good choice as things have not been rushed and new characters' introductions have been handled quite well.
Art has improved vastly from the first season. No more CGI bears, that's right. However, compared to other shows currently airing, the art and animation is still very lacking for such a good animation. This is the only drawback from this amazing anime.
Just as in the first season, the OPs and EDs are still great. Although this season doesn't
jump right into action, it instead gives a lot of time to character development. This is the standing out point of Golden Kamuy. Almost characters are given enough screen time to develop their own unique traits and personalities. The characters in this show are so lovable, even the antagonists.
Overall: 8/10 . A really great show that deserves a lot more attention. Definitely top 5 anime of this season.
