Either this anime is underrated or something although it's ranked 240 something there aren't many replies on Jormungand threads I wonder why? Even though K is ranked waaay lower it got far more replies after its finale compared to this

Probably one of the worst endings I've seen... A 2 year frame isn't enough for the whole damn world to start a civil war while "The US and Soviet Union maintain a peculiar balance." Jonah's reunion with the group was barely even touching given he only left last episode. The effects and consequences of Jormungand weren't even shown. Everything about this ending was just so lazily written, open-ended or not.

7/10 overall for the second season. Didn't enjoy it as much as the first and the ending is just so forgettable.

Jormungand was a good blend of guns guns guns action and somewhat of moral message. I didn't really expect the latter to be as prominent. As the season progressed the show switched gears imo to focus more on this message than the run and gun action.

I'll miss this series. It was pretty damn legit. A good modern action show was enjoyable to have come about.

7/10 The anime was good except for the Jormungand plan itself. Anyone who thinks that stopping aerial travel would solve problems is beyond naive. End was rushed as well. I think Kasper was probably the most realistic person in the end, because he knows that fighting is human nature, to assume otherwise takes a great amount of ignorance.

This was a fun series. The first season was kind of a chore to watch, the 2nd season had much more flow to it.

I wish there was more Lehm in S2. ;_;

Lehm was such a great character! He got a lot of spotlight, but still I wish there was more. Everyone else was great, though!

All in all I'm glad I stuck with Jormungand. Not my favorite of the year, but it was a lot of fun.

Overall I enjoyed this a little less than the first season and some episodes earlier in the series felt a little draggy for me.
Since I gave the first season an 8 I will give this one a 7/10.

I do still love Koko, Jonah and Valmet though.
Will miss those crazy mofos.

I like the ending as a concept, but hate the execution. I don't care where the manga ended, I wanted to see Jormungand in action dammit! I wanted to see all the characters' reactions to Jormungand's activation, not to some random wind from Lutz's ass.

Planes falling, airports in disarray, breaking news reports, entire militaries halted, random doomsdayers spouting about God's vengeance ~ cut to Koko's smirking face "keikaku doori" END

Yet, the execution of the ending didn't affect my score.
First season: 9/10.
Second season: 8/10

Valmet almost earned a spot on my favorites list last season, she made it this season.

I expected more from the ending. Really wanted to see Jormungand activated. Well, if that's where the Manga ended then I guess it's acceptable

Story - 8/10
Art - 7/10
Animation -7/10
Sound - 100000000/10 Godly OSTs.

Overall Enjoyment - 8/10

So was I the only one who was underwhelmed? When you build up the Jormungand plan that much, an open ending is the last thing I want to see. I felt like the two year jump should have happened after the activation, not as some random jump which results in effectively no character development. Seriously, the most interesting thing that happened after two years was Koko cut her hair. I would have loved to see even just a glimpse of the future, but I feel like they ended it at the worst possible moment.

Jormungand Perfect order has a series was amazing. The Characters were amazing, and they someone explained each characters background, and how they ended up with Koko. The soundtrack was amazing. I keep finding myself listening to the song played at the end of episode 10. I am somewhat disappointed that the manga didn't go further so the anime would continue. I mean I wanted to see what the creators of Jormungand think would happen if humanity suddenly lost their access to the sky. I mean Jormungand: New world, sounds catchy doesn't it. But overall this series was amazing 9/10.

the complete adaption of the manga to anime... it was a fun series to watch - and overall a nice open ending leaving much to the imagination while giving a decent amount of detail also. And the OST continued to be quite enjoyable throughout the series. and the Art style fit the adaption (similar to its manga art style)

uck her brother was the only logical one:take away jets then we'll attack with battleships.take away battleships then we'll attack with tanks.take away tanks then we'll attack with guns.take away guns then we'll attack with swords. seriously pick up a dam history book

her solution "they look look into the sky and be shamed about what was taken away and stop fighting because their ashamed"....ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!? they wouldn't be shammed they would be colossally PISSED OFF and start gunning for your tyrant ass.

god i just got reminded of every goddam hippie dumbass that ever said "stop fighting" like its the easiest thing in the world.

Its not just the air she wil dominate. When jormungang was demonstrated the first time, it showed how it could mess with the GPS and communications of ground units too, like when Seals ended up near the cuban base. Naval warfare would be useless without any form of GPS or radar systems. She could scramble all the cordinates and maps of any naval fleet. Anything that would rely on a GPS system would be a target. The only reason she restricts the air is because of the risk of losing the jormungand satalite.

I thought it was a brilliant series, and a good ending! Still... i wouldnt mind seeing season 3. I cant get enough of this series.

I gotta agree with you there. I have never cared for open endings. Black Lagoon blows this out of the water in a big way.

On another note though am I the only one here that wanted Jonah to completely reject Koko's ideology at the very end. Not to mention that hamfisted way he reunites with the group is lame.

I'm dissapointed...
Jonah got over it really fast and cheasy reunion at the end didn't really do it for me =/
Kasper also blew whole Koko plan to bits. As he said, nothing stops humanity from shipping and creating swords again. War will never stop. Koko will basically sacrifice 700 000 people for nothing.

And I really think that they should've showed at leas one air plane falling down. I actually expecedt to see one of thme crashing behind Jonah's back as he went through desert. That would make a far better ending. To add cheesiness they could have the group in shadows waiting for him.

Ehhh. Ending was ultimately lackluster. In fact, the recent string of episodes really couldn't compete with the first half of this season. Everything just...slowed down, almost to a halt. The ending was so abrupt that I questioned whether or not the manga was cancelled before the author could finish the story. Who knows, though.

Still, I watched Jormungand for its quirky cast of characters, despite some of them not sharing the spotlight this season. Valmet, for one. She's such a cool character, so it was a shame to see her pushed to the background. Great stuff with Kasper, Chequita, R, and Hex, however. On that note, I still miss Hex. And I'm still pissed that they killed her off. =(

All in all, Jormungand was a fun and entertaining ride, with an interesting group of characters. And I'll definitely miss them all.

Awesome series overall. Loved almost every aspect of it. Though the ending was a little underwhelming, after letting it sink in for a while, it made more sense and an ambiguous ending was the right ending for this series.

However, I feel that a quantum computer controlling the world's skies won't actually end all wars. Even air combat. Judging from what I saw, Jormungand only controls computerized navigation and GPS. Bigger wars were fought without such technological aid. You can still fly a plane without a GPS.

Koko had good intentions but I feel that something like that wouldn't really change much.

Might as well leave a short comment since I might not have the time for this.

The series was amazing in action and weaponry. It did a great job portraying special teams albeit not at their IRL bests.

Appreciated the following,

A nice last shot of Kasper and indeed the setup/execution with Jonahs and him was perfect. I most liked seeing the kids he saved once again for Jonahs.

The quantum computer is a insane conspiracy. Quite interesting but in the wrong hands it can change a lot. Now it’s in space so the satellite essentially shows the SNAKE that infests and is grasping Earth under its control. Perhaps the creator was trying to convey space supremacy = World Domination. Well to no surprise Russia and USA are the ones with most of them so World Domination is quite a reality with them. As much USA going to foreign countries as a excuse to steal their resources to Russia making back end deals to oust USA out of them countries. Regardless the weaponry was fantastically rendered and the creator must be some army freak or lover or passionate about it cause you can’t make this if you are not. From the A-10 to the F-15 to Mi 24, I can attest all were nicely rendered from S1 to S2. That B-52 and them bomb dropping on Hex. GLORIOUS but sad still. Well done really.

Finally among all the guys Wilee had the best one in the spoiler
and always did. Liked him the most since his past was revealed as I had friends that were in his profession and not I learned there was someone in my family that was a sapper in the army. All the more to like Wilee there.

Apart from the episode the season was solid with more service, action and drama that made me TT_TT for Hex! POOR HER! May she R.I.P. Hex really influenced me a lot. R’s death not so much. This season is really a 9/10 while the other one goes down 8/10. This season making me emotional means a lot to me in the scoring. HEX MAN! Still depressed thinking about her so I shall stop there.

Final score is 9/10! Sadly I don't have enough time to say all but really great series in terms of army/action.

I really liked this anime. I think it ended quite well. Unfortunately I don't see much room for yet a 3rd season. If there was it would mean that her "new" world failed like Kasper said it would. I like leaving it at that and letting us decide: would it actually work in ending all war?

Personally I doubt that it would... I think Kasper is right.

Am I the only one who seriously wanted to see Jonah/Lutz/Kasper/possibly Lehm put a stop to Koko's insane plan? Her plan is a complete failure and will cost more lives than it will save.

Ever heard of TRENCH WARFARE? Yeah, the kind of warfare that racked up the kill count in WW1, that's making a comeback without air support. And all modern ships/infantry (not sure about planes) are trained to operate without GPS or anything, it's not hard, just not as convenient. ALSO, it won't be long before the US, NUSSR, or some other semi-developed country build a missile that's off "the grid" and blow Koko's computer out of orbit.

She progressed to a near lunatic at the end of the series, refusing to accept that her plan is futile and saying "SOMEHOW NOT BEING ABLE TO USE SOME MODERN AERIAL EQUIPMENT WILL SHAME US SO BAD WE'LL STOP FIGHTING OVER WATER AND BE PEACEFUL". Completely in denial.

Koko was supposedly vastly wealthy, if she wanted to actually help the world and not just fulfill her god fantasies, she could have industrialized the world and abolished countries/borders. She could have raised an army of people or something and used Jormungand to just disable military equipment. She could build plants to turn salt water into drinkable water. She could done so much more, if she wasn't stuck on some irrational delusion bred from her hatred of humanity.

Instead of creating a new world that will be peaceful and kind, she just threw it into the mud, where it'll be more filthy than ever before.

So killing a few hundred thousand innocent people and taking away technology will create world peace. Good thing there were no wars or thing like that before 1900. Good old peaceful Roman Empire days eh?

Anticlamatic, though at least they went for a morally ambiguous ending and that's more than most shows dare to do. Too bad I actually wanted the protagonists to lose this time.

3/5 because of how they ended it, but a 7/10 for the season. It was really enjoyable, especially until the end. A shame Jonah or Lehm (I actually had hopes for him) didn't do something. Or even Kasper, loved the stand-off between him and Koko.

That was a cool episode, and a great way to end the episode (activating Jormungand). I think two years passing by in one episode was a lot, but I guess the major point was that World War 3 was nearly ready to begin, with all of the civil wars and chaos in every country. Still, considering that, there wasn't much action in this episode, I guess they had no time for it. I think the ending could have been more epic tbh.

Still, this series was great, although I may feel that as it progressed, the action wasn't as good. The first few episodes of S1 were cool; but, by S2, it focused a lot on the plot (organizations, people, etc.), so I think there wasn't as much action as I wanted and more talking. With that said, when there was action, it was amazing. It may even end up as one of my favorites, going to in-depth with organizations and such.
I hope to see Koko and her unit in a season 3 someday, I'm sure we'd all like to see Jormungand and its effects (kind of ironic that the ending of the series is the activation/beginning of Jormungand).
5/5.

Terrible, terrible ending.
It felt like the author really believed in Koko's plan and story-wise sacrificed everything in order to make it happen.
1). No conflict. Which is ironical in a show about guns and wars. But really, no one actually opposed Koko in a meaningful way, on a contrary, everyone around was happy to help or at least not to stand on her way: all of her regular hired guns were fine with the plan, Curry happily retired, elder woman dealer was happy to join, CIA guys were useless, J. Black switched his side, that glassed guy has been taken out of the game no problem, Kasper decided he's fine either way, old daddy Hekmatyar was not even there and Jonathan crawled back on his knees in the end after two years of uncertainty he used to do nothing of importance. The only character to criticize Jormungand plan in an intelligent way was Kasper, but again he was not against it.
2). Jormungand is in god mode. This problem naturally flows from the first one, but not only. Jormungand system is simply overpowered from the start, watching how it owns everyone around is as fun as watching Superman beating the crap out of a two weeks years old puppy. Not all that exited.
3). Two years jump into the future to justify the plan. That's cheating. If you want to do a statement, you can't use cheap tactics like that as an author. Koko states there will be a WW3 soon enough, the world of the show is basically our own world so her words are a warning to us, the viewers. But we can't be sure she is right (actually there are a lot of evidence around proving that she is not). That brings some extra ambiguousness to Koko's actions. And then all this ambiguousness is killed with a cheat: here is your two years fast forward, wars everywhere, Koko was 100% right, shut up. Yeah...

On top of that, Jormungand plan itself is a joke. People will stop fighting out of shame? What kind of bullshit is this, that's ridiculous! Also I predict instead of shame people will be simply pissed off of cause. Not to mention Koko herself told us WW3 will be not about oil, but about drinking water. Now let's pretend she was able to stop the war (which she was not, but let's pretend), so now people are not gonna die from weapons and can happily die from thirst and hunger instead. Way to go treating symptoms of the disease instead of it's cause. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Also she effectively halted all space programs around the world, so no colonisation of Mars and other alike brave scientific programs for humanity. Instead of being anti-war Koko's plan simply stinks technophobia and lunatism.

Season two went from 9/10 to 5/10 for me with a final like this.
