Well, I just finished Season 2 of Attack on Titan. It, it was decent. I just didn't feel the same wow factor as I got when watching through Season 1. And Season 1 I watched about a year after it had already aired. Season 2, I watched whilst it was airing. I should have felt more for what was going on, but I didn't.

I won't spoil anything that happens, because to be honest Tumblr already spoiled most of the show and the continuing manga for me approximately 4 years ago.
I think the most irritating thing is that it only has 12 episodes.

I mean, what?
You just produced one of the most popular animes in nearly a decade. Your anime has become mainstream. A decent plot, kick-ass soundtrack, tons of realistic characters (kinda, although I can't stand Eren), awesome battle scenes, copious backstory, tragedy, violence, some great world-building over a world which has been brought to the edge of ruin...

And you respond by making us wait for 2-3 years before doing a second season? A season with only 12 episodes??
Like, the hype has already died down by now. I just wasn't very impressed. We got some new stuff happening, some really awesome developments and plot twists. We also got more screentime for secondary characters which would have otherwise been ignored. Unfortunately, it bit into the screentime of other, better characters.

I just feel it could have been better. 12 episodes wasn't enough for this. I ended up giving it a mediocre 9/10, instead of...
...oh wait, that's what I gave the first season. Never mind.

I am happy, however, that a season 3 has already been put into motion for last year! Well, I fucking hope so.

Like how BBC Sherlock made us wait so many years for Season 3 to come out.
(Yes, I know Martin Freeman was busy filming the Hobbit films at the time and they decided to wait for him.)
But I'm not going to talk about that, I'm not into Sherlock anymore. The whole enterprise is highly silly. Here's looking at you, Benedict Cucundering Cumberling Cockering Batch.

It's like Bates Motel or TWD. Only a handful of eps per season! Stupid stupid and yet more stupid.

I know, Pokemon is like that too. :-( I love Pokemon anime but there aren't a lot of eps. Luckily our town library has an selection of DVDs.

Ah Adrian. I am sorry... my brain is operating on half capacity due to lack of sleep. I know that Pokemon has a lot of eps... what anime are you talking about? Inuyasha was good while it lasted. I don't get Teletoon where they put a lot of anime, I have yTV though but that's mainly for a younger audience. :-(

Was on Tumblr and I saw this and thought of you.
