after the first season my EXPECTATIONS were not to high for second season
season one was good picking a lot of praise during the initial episodes abd well recieved but sort of lost steam during the later episodes and also the ovas dint help a lot. well the end episodes of s1 were sort of dull maybe due to more of "world building" going on there.
so when s2 came out naturally there was hype but it had reduced. but gotta agree s2 just blew me away, not much time was spent on character development besides rimuru and a few side characters but overall character development was good. The show started of slow but picked up a lot of steam with it ending on a cliff hanger so expect a lot of things from cour 2
