ITT: Shows that had potential but went downhill quickly in their second half
I thought that Aldnoah.Zero was pretty enjoyable and then S2 happened.
First half was decent but once they started trying to shoehorn battles into every ep it went to pure shit. Characters were fucking awful especially Jerid the jobber and Katz
The moment it dropped off the cliff is not especially hard to see.
To the point that I would recommend people just skip S2
Second part of this anime was fucking awful. I don't get how it gets so much praise.
First half wasn't that great to begin with, but yeah, definitely went off the rails.
I always have an image of the author wanting to stop, but with a gun to his head.
Kyousogiga and Kekkai Sensen are two that come to mind. Not that either ended badly, but they definitely faltered in their second halves.
Loved the first few episodes, but I think the premise feels like they were building up a lot more than what they had time to deliver.
