Attack of the sequels indeed...
Dr. Stone: Stone Wars/season 2 - It would be easy/lazy to turn the conflict into a "we have the sharper science weapons, so you die" ordeal, and while that does hold a certain appeal- the protagonists pursuing a bloodless victory is a far more interesting approach to me. Looking forward to seeing how the story progresses.
The Quintessential Quintuplets, season 2 - I'm still a harem comedy junkie. The art style has shifted to a softer, more cartoony look; and all of the girls have apparently stopped overstuffing their bras. Seems to suggest this season will focus less on the fanservice and more on the rom and com, although the first season itself had very little fanservice to begin with.
Non Non Biyori Non Stop Nondescript Nondefinitive Nonchalant Nonsense - More of the same perfect healing animay series. This one almost slipped under my radar, so thanks for the heads-up, Joy. We animay watching EvaGeeks really do need to stick together.
That time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, season 2 - More of the same silly isekai hijinks with good, practically literal world-building.
Laid-Back Camp, season 2 - I didn't watch the spin-off show, so I hope I didn't miss any earth-shattering revelations that'll leave me lost and confused with this new season...
Speaking of lost and confused-
Re:ZERO, season 2 - So Garfiel was placated because Subaru mentioned his mommy; turns out he hates mother trauma as much as he hates Mondays. This took me completely by surprise. Was this fact ever alluded to in any of the last 15 episodes? I honestly don't remember and don't really care to hear the answer.
Things have reached a point where I've had enough of all the layered conversations and I'm skipping ahead to the dragon tackling.
Question- exactly when did it become common practice to end the first episode of your new season with the new OP?
This just bugs me.
