Hot dang!
6 December 2017 | by jace-rynearsonSee all my reviews

This was a great show, it's still a great show, and I'M STILL WAITING FOR SEASON 3.

Where to start with it? The plot is amazing, it's like if X-men was a lot more realistic and intense, the result may surprise you. I liked all the characters, they all had a lot of depth, personality, and development. The story was so intense you'd literally be at the edge of your seat, and full of things that shock you and fill you with sentiment. There's good people and bad people on both sides, which adds to the good morals it presents, being don't judge other people for who they might seem or act like, don't let bad things happen, but stay true to who you are, and love and friendship can bloom even when one of them isn't who or what they say.

The animation was amazing, there was a lot of detail in things, like the color of each scene and the detail in each character all worked to make it more intense and emotional.

The English voice acting is really good, all the voice actors clearly liked working on the project, and while they weren't perfect at first, they still did their best.

By second season, all the voice actors mastered their roles, and the story took an even more dramatic and emotional turn.

Speaking of the characters, the main character starts off as a seemingly cliché shy guy, but then he quickly becomes a like able, relatable guy with a lot of depth. By the second season, he had a lot more character development than he already had, but didn't deviate too far from the established character. He became more active, but still kept his moral compass and didn't become unlike-able.

The only real problem I can point out is that the large amount of character development was kind of sudden and forced because of a scene where the main character was brutalized for so many episodes. There were some reasons to avoid it, because I kind of liked him better before his drastic change. But to be honest, it wasn't a bad idea, it was actually kind of a good idea, but the show would probably still be really good without it too. I liked the intensity, light humor, fear, and emotionality of the first season a lot, but the turn it took in the second season was still a good idea nonetheless.

Speaking of, I don't know why the second season is getting so much hate, it was even better than the first. It made an already intense story even more emotionally intense and tugged at your heart-strings a lot more.

All in all, love that show, and cannot wait for season 3!
