TL;DR Review

Ajin: Demi-Human 2nd Season picked right up right after the first season. This season add a few more characters to the lineup.

The animation is consistent with the first season. The anime utilize a full 3D CGI format that I think is one of the better done 3D animations. It only feels weird at first and you’ll get used to it.

The new opening theme “Boku wa Boku de atte” (僕は僕であって) by angela x fripside is just as good as the first season’s opening song. The ending song “At the Edge of the Schoolyard the Wind Blows, Can I Say That Now?” by CreepHyp is a little weird at first but after several listen it grow on me.

We are starting to see Kei Nagai’s ghost is more unusual than your typical black ghost. The character development in this season is just as good, with additional focus on some supporting cast. We are also slowly seeing what Sato real goal is.

I highly recommend Ajin: Demi-Human season two to mature viewer that enjoyed the first season. This anime contains graphic violence and some suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for mature audiences. Intended for mature audiences.

Eren and his companions in the 104th are assigned to the newly-formed Levi Squad, whose assignment is to keep Eren and Historia safe given Eren’s newly-discovered power and Historia’s knowledge and pedigree. Levi and Erwin have good reason to be concerned because the priest of the Church that Hanji had hidden away was found tortured to death, making it clear that the Military Police are involved with the cover-up. Things get more harrowing when the MPs make a move on Erwin and the Levi Squad narrowly avoids capture. Eren is also having problems with his Titan transformation, and a deadly killer has been hired to secure Eren and Historia, one Levi knows all too well from his youth.

But both the procedure and the newly formed Qs Squad are untested.

Attack on Titan Season 2 (2017) Review

Many years ago, the last remnants of humanity were forced to retreat behind the towering walls of a fortified city to escape the massive, man-eating Titans that roamed the land outside their fortress. Only the heroic members of the Scouting Legion dared to stray beyond the safety of the walls – but even those brave warriors seldom returned alive. Those within the city clung to the illusion of a peaceful existence until the day that dream was shattered, and their slim chance at survival was reduced to one horrifying choice: kill – or be devoured!
