What did you guys think of the OPM and AoT this summer? In my opinion,
One Punch Man:
I really can't say I was that disappointed with the animation this season. I know there was definitely a fear of decline in quality after they left Madhouse, but I was pleasantly surprised to say that for the most part, I think it stood up to that of season 1.
While I found the Saitama and King scenes kind of boring, I loved Garou's character arc, and how we got to watch him grow into his power rather than just see him appear as a singuar force that's OP from day 1 (that fight with the class A heroes was AMAZING). That being said, I was EXTREMELY disappointed to see the way they ended it. It's one thing to end a season on a cliff hanger, but there was absolutely zero closure, and nothing really signified that it was a season end, which is especially upsetting due to the lack of confirmation on a season 3.
All in all, I'd give it a 7.5/10. Wasn't as good as season 1. The storytelling around Garou was what carried the season. We had some great fight scenes too, but outside of that everything else seemed a bit lackluster.
Attack on Titan:
FINALLY some proper worldbuilding! Grisha's revelations provided great insight, and learning about Krueger and the science behind the titan powers was awesome. Loved to see Bertholdt finally do something, even if it was just dying (so hyped to see Armin as a titan). As a non-manga reader, I was very satisfied.
9.5/10. The only bummer for me was the annoyingly slow suspense-building that (in my opinion) wasted at least a whole episode. Aimless wandering through Shiganshina with repetitive flashbacks was frustrating to watch.
Overall, I can say I was very content with both of them.
