and tbh the first season of Active Raid was a completely sh*t and they put all of cons in it and tbh they put all of their efforts in Haifuri rather than Active Raid

Hmm still debating on whether or not I should continue onto the sequel I had a hard time completing the first season :/ but if they decide to add some romance in the anime I'll give it a try :D Hopefully Kuroki and Kazaki get together it would really make the anime worth watching all the whole chasing after criminals thing is kinda boring.

I had fun with the first season so I'll be looking forward to the second. (":

Most of it was tolerable, but the antagonists were complete shit. Nothing worse than angry, pseudo-intellectual teenagers.

The animation was great, the character designs were great, and the OP/ED was great. The only thing it was lacking was story. not enough info was given about any of the characters hopefully we'll have more of that in the 2nd season.

Active Raid was okay. Not great, not terrible. Just alright.

Japanese disc sales were about average. Higher than certain shows from the same season, but obviously not at the top of the list. It won't be incredibly popular, no doubt, yet there is a limited fanbase for the series.

Hopefully they will tweak a few things in order to make the villains more interesting this time around, but I don't think the show will change a lot.

The new cast seems nice enough on paper. I'd rather have more details about each new character though.

I don't think the first season was well received or popular anywhere. I painted it as a mediocre show nobody cared about when it was airing. So it's kinda silly for it to be getting another season when there are so many good shows that have only had one season.
Its not silly it was split cour anyways.

Besides it had pretty good viewership. The west liking or hating it means nothing.

Good point.

Well, I won't touch it but it'll be there for those who enjoyed it.

Nope. Mal has a bias against mecha in general. Besides its a bit like Super Sentai which most westerns arent a fan of. So a mixture of that shows an unfavorable rating on mal.

Not going to excuse it and say its amazing but its def entertaining. There is a good story to be told and its telling it.
