Attack on Titan Season 2 (2017)
進撃の巨人 (Shingeki no Kyojin)

Synopsis

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!

TL;DR Review

This is a shorter season of Attack on Titan with only 12 episodes. The story takes up almost right after where the first season ended.

The story doesn’t seem to progress much, though many revelations were revealed. Bit and pieces of the world and some characters are slowing being expanded upon.

This season focuses more on some side characters and the action was more an afterthought. For this reason, this season feels a little slower than the first. The second season is still good, despite being short and rather talkative.

The music choice is similar to the previous season. I am not particularly fond of their music selections. They were neither good nor bad, just not particularly memorable.

I still highly recommend this series to Games of Thrones fan that don’t mind gory violence scenes. Attack on Titan contains graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Parental guidance is advised. Intended for mature audiences.

Overlord Season 3 (2018) 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.
