So I'm the only one here who thinks that this new OP is great?

>Watches trailer to hear the OP
>Meh sounds generic with an artist I barely know
>Reads this thread and find out its Kitani Tatsuya
>Damn suddenly it's a bop

I failed you, my critical thinking self...

@MegamiRem Oh right, that song was great as well.

@thebrentinator24 True but lets not forget the ED by Queen Bee though.

May 27, 7:30 AM by MegamiRem

Cool, can't wait. The trailer reminds me of the Act-Age manga.

I heard that voice and thought the same thing! The credited artist is GEMN, but apparently this is a new project featuring Tatsuya Kitani. Good ear!

Animation looks very good, I will be adding it to my watch list for sure.

@mshfqtny In that case, I hope they appear with at least ED. As a last resort, return in future seasons if things don’t stall like with Komi.

Oh no people personally liking a song means they have low standards 😱 people on the internet just hate opinions 💀

It doesn't look any worse than the first season, but I'm still intrigued by how the events in the manga this year will affect the reception of the anime. Especially the latest chapters.

@thebrentinator24 I hope they at least give the ending theme to YOASOBI. Although I don't remember them ever performing them.

Any OP after "Idol" was cooked from the start because that's such a tough OP to follow up. But man the Tokyo Blade arc was peak so I'm excited for this.

May 26, 11:19 AM by thebrentinator24

Holy shit, this looks even better than the first season. Didn't think that was possible, but here we are.

Can't say the same for the OP. Though, I'm pretty sure that's Tatsuya Kitani, so I have some hope... but the bar has been set very high.
