mpressive how the title saved itself so well. After the first season completely failed in the middle section and ultimately won with the dissolution, I had my doubts about the potential of the sequel. Sure, the background story about the spear and Hakumen's actions in season one has been very impressive. But because of that, the entire potential should have already been lost.Fortunately, I was wrong. The second season managed to keep the tension going until the end. To deliver a grandiose finale on a full metal alchemist scale and to give the characters even more depth with more background stories. In particular, there were a few new developments, admissions and unfortunately tragedies. The final fight was a long one (it included episode 33-39), but it had everything a fight needed. Hardly any plot armor, no ass pulls and a very appealing and understandable process. And also the consequence and the price of the victory. Unfortunately, it doesn't always result in a total happy ending, which is why I liked this ending even more. This makes it look much more realistic. I would certainly have preferred it if some of the main characters had more screen time. This would have made her story, her struggle and her degree much more emotional. Since you only knew some of them for only 10-20 minutes, it worked well, but you couldn't build a feeling for it. story The plot reached its climax here and revealed new parts of the background story about the characters and Hakumen. This started the plot and the meaning of many episodes from season 1, to understand more clearly. Likewise, some of Tora's actions got a completely different meaning after you finally understood the character. Since the tension of the narrative could be maintained really well here, I can hardly take anything negative here. In the area of ​​storytelling, this work did an excellent job for a shounen. Animation / pictures The animations have gotten a little better. Mostly still images. But the presentation has improved significantly. In addition, a little more effort was put into drawing characters. Characters Basically, there was little change in most of the characters. some have simply grown up and matured. Only Torah and Hakumen have finally seen the full picture of their backgrounds. Likewise the reasons for Tora's actions, his past and you learned to understand his personality more. I find the explanation of his usual "I'll eat you" particularly interesting - I would not have expected that these words actually had a deeper meaning. The origin of Hakumen was also very interesting and explained its character much more. Among other things, I have to say that it reminds me a little of Pennywise / Es.The conclusion of Hakumen's story was also written and implemented quite interestingly. An excellent antagonist. Conclusion This rating is for season 2 only and not for the overall work. The first season is much worse and would lower the general rating. However, season 2 consisted of only 13 episodes, which relied a lot on plot and explanation. The anime also has a finale that hardly any shounen has ever achieved. If the first season had the same quality as this one, the anime would undoubtedly be one of the best titles.
