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.

Overlord Season 1 Review

In the year 2126, a Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game or DMMORPG called Yggdrasil was released. It stands out among all other DMMORPG’s due to its unusually high ability for the player to interact with the game. After an intense 12-year run the game servers are about to be shut down. Within the game exists a guild, Ainz Ooal Gown, once consisting of 41 members and credited as one of the strongest guilds in the game. Now only 4 of the members remain, the other 37 having quit the game. Of those 4 only one, an elder lich character named Momonga continues to play as the guild leader and maintaining their headquarters, The Great Tomb of Nazarick. He invites the remaining guild members but of those only one appears and only for a short while before leaving. While saddened by this, he accepts the reality that his friends have their real lives to take care of and decides to stay logged in until the servers shut down.

When the shut-down time arrives, however, Momonga finds that the game hasn’t vanished. Instead, it appears as if Yggdrasil has been recreated as its own reality along with its various NPCs having been brought to life while Momonga has been trapped in the form of his game avatar, leaving him unable to use the normal player functions, such as General Message, or even to log out. With no other option, Momonga sets out to learn if anyone from ‘the real world’ is also in this new world with him. Taking on the name of Ainz Ooal Gown, a message to any other players, Momonga begins exploring the world in an attempt to figure out what has happened while searching for anyone, or anything, that could help him solve this mystery while ensuring the safety of Nazarick.

Attack on Titan Season 3 Review

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.

Attack on Titan Season 1 Review

Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by enclosing themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.
