When They Cry: Kai

Apr 22, 2019

I've got mixed feelings about this season of When They Cry. There is a lot more focus on just tiding the story up and giving it the conclusion it deserves, which does result in the show having a different vibe.

The first season started out with a group of goofy kids and as the season progressed it become more violent and crazy. That same build-up doesn't exist in the second season. 

I wasn't too impressed with the animation style of the first season, but the story made up for it. Season 2 seems to have been given a higher budget regarding the production quality, but the show has also taken a more mature approach. You won't find those crazy over the top slasher moments from before in this season, it's all a lot more political. 

I'm still impressed with how the story progressed, how every character had an important role in each of the different outcomes, and how all the missing puzzle pieces found their way to the puzzle we were trying to solve.

8/10 story
