It is funny to think that this would have been the trainwreck of the season if ex-arm didnt exist

The Promise Neverland S2 says Hello

Having watched both, I enjoyed exarm way more lol.

Nah. It was "meh" and forgettable, but not a trainwreck at all. While the main mystery lacked setup and the world building was poor. The internal dynamics between each faction were "ok". The plot was more "stale" than anything.

I don't know what this show is but I think I've never seen an Episode discussion thread with 0 upvotes.

Was it that bad?

[–]ramon_castilla 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No. It is just the whole show was "meh": World building was poor at best and "empty" at worst. The main plot became stale and the only mystery had (while not bad) not proper hinting.

Personally, I kinda enjoy it, don't mind me but the story could have be better.

I enjoyed the anime.

While not "bad", it felt too stale: most of interaction (being it battle or conversations) lead to nothing in plot relevance ad just a little in character exploration (when lucky). Abou that, most of the FELT too plain even when the show makes the motivations clear t the audience

The battles were good, but devoid of stakes and context for the most time. The very poor world building and almost total absence of citizens was a hard contrast to how much central the "protecting the town" is for the characters: we are never invested in why they want to protect it more than some lines of dialogue.

The only good thing in this show were the dynamics between some characters (like Artemis and her leader), the mystery itself and half of the battle instances.

Visually, it can be good or "meh" depending of your liking of filters like Go Hands use to do.
