In a season where nothing much was especially jumping out at me, I took some shots in the dark. Mostly due to a striking visual style and bizarre visuals, Sarazanmai caught my attention. After getting to know the extreme formulaic setup to episodes and repeated animation, I came close to dropping off. After getting to the half way point, I’m glad I didn’t.
There’s been a petition on Change.Org been doing the rounds on social media this past week. One that has been getting a lot of attention, for better for for worse. Mostly worse. With over 1 million supporters as of the time of writing this, “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers” is a sad commentary on the current state of fandoms.
Back when I was reviewing the first half of this season of Attack on Titan, I’d often complain on how little titan action there was. I was half joking, as the political intrigue and dive into the lore of the world was equally fascinating to me.
I can only imagine that in some bizarre timeline, someone making this show heard me, because the first three episodes of part two kick off with a number of titan sized bangs.
