I was really excited to watch the Sword of Uruk after watching Aegis of Uruk and its cliffhanger ending. Aegis of Uruk starts off 6 months (I think) after the events of the previous series. We see our heroes, who have lost much (friends, family, loved ones, occupation) trying to adjust to a normal life - Some have more difficulty than others.
The premise of this anime is quite interesting. It asks the question, "What would you do if you've lost your motivation?" Would you: find something else to live for and move on, or yearn for the past and let life pass you by.
Although the foundations of this anime seemed pretty strong, the execution (I found) was rather weak. For some reason, I didn't find this anime as entertaining as the first. The comedy wasn't as funny. The characters weren't as interesting. The animation not as smooth. The action not as cool. The storyline not as engaging.
I really wanted to like this anime; but for some reason (or reasons stated above) it was missing the magic from the first season. I wish they could've made this differently as I was hugely disappointed.
