The direction of season 2 for anime only watchers of The Promised Neverland was alright from, again, the standpoint of anime only watchers. Honestly though, as an adaptation, it was terrible from ep 5 onward. The scene where Emma makes a deal with what is basically god of the world was 8 seconds long... what? The anime cut Goldy Pond and Yuugo which added the most character development and world building the entire series offered. Most hate isn't just because an entire arc was cut, though, it was because of how randomly everything seemed to happen. It felt like an any% speedrun to finish the series off without giving real context to how things happened nor why. All my opinion of course but still, if an anime deviates from the original work you can't say it's anyone's fault other than the directors... right? Especially if that deviation makes it worse and generates so much hate for such a previously loved adaptation.

to me it felt like the direction of the show was actually quite decent but the story/writing he is adapting was absurdly stupid. don't know if the fault was of the original author, writer, or higher-ups (maybe including the director). but knowing he did so good with season 1 it's hard to believe he would mess up season 2 like that.

Anyways this is just what I felt while watching the show the real story behind it could be entirely different so please take this with a grain of salt
