That's because the ending of S2 was COMPLETELY transitional. Everything, except Earth 2 was a new development that just started, there was no resolution. The anti-Christ was born and it sucks humans instead of Contractors, Yin's condition is unknown, AMRKA invaded and occupied Japan cause of the Gate and Misaki, of all people, is now the head of the new Syndicate whose purpose is to fight the invaders. Chinese Electric Batman and Japanese Lesbian Catwoman vanished into the night.

It was a perfect setup for S3 until the director said in an interview that S2 cleared every and all questions.

God damn it, Bones.

>>101585024

There isn't a good comparison for it. It is just a completely different show from S1. The color palate is completely different, people act out of character for the series, it introduces a billion new aspects of the world that I wont opinionize on, and instead of a tight two episode focus for all the arcs its a 13 episode affair.

Lets look at episode structure during S1's overarching narrative events were done during a set of two episodes. This let them have a tighter focus on the characters central to the arc. Hei even starts to feel less like a protagonist and more like a framing device in half the arcs.

In S2 however is ALL about Suou.

I disagree, it was one of the few things that started with little context and developed enough to make perfect sense in the end of the show, which was surprising considering it was in the middle of a shitstorm of new plotpoints and developments out of fucking nowhere.

I don't hate S2 like most of /a/, it's actually pretty decent although it could have been handled much better. I'll never get why it got half the episodes of S1.

I didn't remember Japanese Jedi Lesbian Catwoman ended up with Misaki and Golgo 13. Sucks that we'll never see anything come out of it.

This doesn't sound inherently bad. I'm always willing to give it a shot when a show wants to tell a wildly different kind of story in the same universe.

It probably shouldn't have been referred to as a 'second season' if it was such a departure from the status quo, though.

Normally it wouldn't. If It hadn't been a sequel. If it was just Ryusei no Gemini, it would have been a decent 1 cour show. As it stands though its amounts to nothing more than fan fiction that has been legitimized.

yes, she fused with him and that's why he had powers. So the part of him that was her die? I thought the weapon was supposed to destroy contractors, but he just lost his powers, so that is what I assumed happened, but then they didn't even mention it at all.
>>
Suou was a good girl until she got a contractor personality, or whatever the fuck happened. She went from energetic to gloomy.
>>
>>101588268

No, she's just permanently sleeping inside of him now and thats why he can use his powers freely. He didn't lose his power until S2 and those section 13 fucks got involved.

I feel like I'm the only person who really loved season 2. Liked it more than season 1, really.

You people are just impossible to satisfy. If they went into depth about what caused the powers and what was beyond the gate it would have sucked, and you damn right know it. You fucking retards would just be complaining about how it ruined the mystique the series once had, and how it's lame that Hei is the chosen one, or something like that. I'm sure of it.

Season 2 ending is great. It wrapped up the story while keeping up the series paranormal feel intact; because there is no fucking explanation for paranormal shit - it's magic, you don't have to explain, and you couldn't even if you wanted too. It's just better this way.
