To Your Adaptation tl;dr Read the incredible manga after watching the amazing season one, instead of continuing with this mediocre adaptation of Oima's masterpiece. Unlike my review on the previous season, I don't have quite as much to say about this one, except to air my complaints on how badly the director and studio change has burned me. The first season is my favorite anime of all time and the manga is my favorite manga of all time. The first season made excellent use of pacing, music, and dialogue to set a fantastic atmosphere which was easily a big part of why I liked it. The director of this season, however, Kiyoko Sayama, has completely butchered that, using the amazing OST to horrible effect and butchering the pacing, trying to squeeze 68 chapters into 20 episodes at an outragouesly bad ratio. There are montages in this season that all have the same backing track through the scenes despite the tone of the story changing drastically throughout them, making these scenes feel even more badly paced than they are, with a homogenous sense of time progression that offers no variation. The pacing itself ranges from pretty good to downright awful, speeding through important character moments and emotional moments with all the grace and artistry of a NASCAR race. It butchered one of my favorite moments in the manga and it continues to butcher what could be a series of amazing moments in the story to the time of writing this. That said, even a bad adaptation can't do much to hurt the incredible story of To Your Eternity so that still shines through quite a bit despite Sayama's total and complete incompetence. So, in short, please read the manga. Don't watch this after watching season one. Start with chapter 55 after watching ep 20 of season one. 7/10
