I did watch the first season so I think I should tune in for the next round.

As long as it remains faithful to the source I guess?

I really did like this show, although the pacing was a bit slow so the epicness never got a chance to reel you in…I hope the second season brings out more of that and has less of the laid-back feeling

I´ll be honest, i didnt like very much the anime... I dont know if i was very distracted while watching...because, the story was confused, bad characters, bad graphism

I dont think that this second season will be good

the first season was shit imo.
freaked out when I heard that this is getting a second season,
not looking forward to it, but I hope it's at least better than the first season.
just gonna give this a try.

That's pretty assuring honestly... Let the popcorn commence though (?) Ok no, maybe. I dunno, no hate on Fai honestly. :V


Well duh. He watched an adaptation of a game he already hates from a studio he absolutely abhors just so he could rant in every episode discussion of how horrible it is. If that made him watch it, then I see no reason for him to not watch this considering he adores the series so much.


Lololol I know what you're talking about honestly *cough cough*



I know I may have overused the spoiler tag but seriously xD

So it's going to be even worse than season 1.

how is that possible

Awesome, the first season was so good. I expect this will cover the rest of the manga.

Yesssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want a 2nd season for this,but I'm a bit worried for the stuff's changes.

HOLY SHI--

The director of the second season will be Shigehito Takayanagi (Dagashi Kashi)


Suddenly I have no motivation to watch this.

Looking at his roster, I'm crossing my fingers the directing will be more like TWGOK 2 and nothing like his piece of trash recent works.

I would rather have a bad season 2 that's faithful to the source material than the hot fucking garbage matsumoto made tbh

"Hurr durrr let's take a story with the most diverse and interesting ensemble cast we can find, and then push all of those characters to the side so each episode can focus on rie kugimiya talking to herself"
yeah I now. What's the big deal the new director worked on episodes of Trigun so he understands nightow yasuhiro's manga work already. The same thing with Drifters

i still think u should give it a try instead of just dropping it prematurely over director change.

who knows what can happen. It would be safe if they follow the manga


Ohhh he will watch it definitely. Trust me lol ;)
