    As expected, they didn't do Garou's facial expressions justice. Manga panels:

    At least Fubuki looked nice. Not "Murata-nice" but nice.

    The new OP sucks... :gglife

    But the rest of the episode was fine, I would even dare to say the Sonic vs Genos/Saitama was fire :kanyeshrug

    I agree that's it's inferior in quality compared to S1, but I wouldn't outright say it sucks.
    Also Mob Psycho was amazing, but I agree it's animation style doesn't fit well with OPM. (though I liked the way they did the 'Menacing' scene)

    Each to their own I guess, but IMO Murata's drawings fit more with S1's animation quality/style.

    That. . . was not spectacular.

    Slideshow fights I can live with. However - and this is something I felt a bit in the first episode but even more so here - the timing with the jokes and impact moments of the fights just didn't land effectively. It felt like there was a rush to get through everything without letting the moments breathe. Sonic's hair snatch, Saitama's goofy faced tell off of Fubuki and her goons, the punch of said goons - you barely saw Saitama's face for less than a second there, and that was the funniest thing about that panel in both the manga and webcomic.



    One of my favorite Sonic moments was also cut. It's when he jumps off the streetlight, shattering the glass, and as he lands, the shards from the broken streetlight fall around him, sparkling, making him look like something out of a shoujo manga. Not to mention the double page spread where the Sonic clones close in on Genos trying to blast the ground. And the Saitama stampede.

    That all said, Fubuki looked good. Didn't see anything too set worthy from her here tho, sadly.

    Yuki Kaji sold the fk out of it.

    It seems that normies are enjoying it so far, japanese ones and rest of the world.

    I would recommend people to drop it until the Post Superfight Arc, if you are expecting "sakuga animation".

    unfortunately season one set the bar too high, presentation wise. now i can't help but compare.

    i still enjoyed the episode though.

    I actually noticed that A.) Saitama's voice actor is different which that sucks

    B.) the pacing of the show is super weird. Like they cut out a lot of stuff.


    I'm glad to see Fubooty but ....yeah this season sucks :catsad

    The episode was terribly rushed. It looked like they just wanted to get the main events and that's it. They cut out everything non-essential that made the manga so beautiful, and as a result it reduced the series to some backwater mediocre stuff you only watch when drunk. It lost its soul.

    They only cut Garou backtory probably because they will show later on either when he meets Tareo or during the Bang/Bomb fight.

    Episode 1 wasn't good. It didn't have nearly the WoW factor of S1's EP1 and there were notable visual problems.

    This episode was worse, it was bad compared to season 1.

    Problem is that these early episodes might be the best or close to it that JC can offer us animation-wise.

    They could have added some more scenes to the Garou stuff this chapter. Also, Saitama Serious Series was too short.

    Hopefully they don't screw the upcoming fights, precisely Garou's ones.

    You know, I said I didn't mind slideshow fights,
    And I kinda accepted how things would be for now

    But . . . .

    Looking back on
    And man, that was some pretty gorgeous stuff.

    I forgot they added the heart shape on Mosquito girl's ass :lmao
