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.
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.
Guess I’m going to be reviewing these after all. After saying his farewells to his old sensai, we kick right off in episode six with Tanjirou arriving in the town to the north with the goal of dealing with the demon that’s been abducting young girls. As per usual, we’re wasting no time with getting right into the meat of things.
