Holy shit what happened to this show?

Season 1 was really interesting and cool, not the usual take on "stuck in MMO world" shit you see but holy fuck, Season 2 is just awful. The few good episodes are ruined by all the romance/"funny" shit episodes. I'm only halfway through S2, does it actually get better?

Change of studios.
And the author of the LNs broke the law and was arrested.

Season 2 has filler in it, a lot of it.

>>148206431

That has nothing to do with it retard, it's because there was not enough source material

Why are you lying? He wasn't arrested.

>not the usual take on "stuck in MMO world" shit


But that's the premise though, newfag.
>>
>>148206327
Because there wasn't enough material so they had to add filler which fucks the pacing, really just read the novels and stop being dumb.
>>
>>148206327
Nothing bad, S2 went to DEEN since the anime was founded by public tv. They decided to make the art more like the LN's

But people got assblasted about their waifus.

S2 is pretty nice, it has everything expected from the Raids, Krusty being madman and Kanami Genki Adventures.

I miss the threads where people only care about certain mechanics and etc. Not waifufagotry and "Muh deen quality meme".

Also: marmelade was arrested i guess, the last thing i heard was that he played DnD, or wanted it with maruyama and other people.

Studio doesn't have shit to do with anything ever. What matters is the staff and how much money the production committee gives them. I want retards to leave.

>>148211449

I won't pretend there weren't some pacing issues but overall I felt the payoff was worth it
>>
>Different studio didn't change anything

They simplified several of the character designs.
>>
>>148211596
Doesn't change of studio imply change of staff?

I remember reading that Seitokai no Ichizon S2 was hated by everyone because the studios changed and the art, the style, and even the VAs were changed for the worse.

I really enjoyed Log Horizon but holy fuck I hated the kids, why the fuck did they waste so many episodes on them? Especially in Season 2. There were so many other things going on with the main cast but we wasted a good amount of episodes with the annoying kids, I fucking hate them and they have no place in the story, I hope they die.

The Tax Evasion shit is just media vultures blowing shit out of proportion for hits.

Here's basically what went down

>Japanese IRS: Yo Marmalade you owe us taxes for the anime
>Marm: I thought the studio did that
>IRS: Uh..no
>M: aw snao
>IRS: Aw snap is right
>M: here is a check
>IRS: cool

They will always, always try to get their money before sending you away. Especially if it was a stupid mistake.

I think the main issue with season 2 was the staff's fucked up priorities.

The first two arcs are the closest to the ln, but even there they cut world building scenes and replaced them with more Akatsuki angst. Then, there's an episode where they attempted to fit in an entire ln because the main cast wasn't in it. There's several filler scenes in the middle episodes and even an episode based mostly on a manga chapte.

>>148211757
They were just different. Several of the designs became more detailed too, like the guild leader that left the city in season 1.

I still enjoyed season 2 but it was definitely worse. If it didn't have the raid, I would have probably hated it.

I just want to see Shiroe doing smart things, dangit. And Nureha's tits.

Not really. The politics was interesting but hampered by the shallowness of every character. Execution could've been a lot better.

Would gamble on foxtail's racial feature.
It could either make your character garbage or completely overpowered.

Less Akatsuki, more Demikas

>>148222185
I wasn't a big fan of Akatsuki either, so the was one thing I was particularly intersted in changing
>>
>>148206327

It's Akatsuki's arc in particular that makes S2 so hard to get through. She doesn't get that much focus in the first season and honestly it should have stayed that way.

To be fair, DEENs animation quality did kill the experience for a lot of people, and there was a DMCA already set in place slowing down the translations of these arcs.
>>
>>148219479
Nureha is on the used and abused side of living, like how a girl can be born into a trash tier family, so she ends up with mental and health problems killing her natural beauty, then they are prone to doing stupid shit easily that it's not worth your time.

It was always supposed to be "alternative world heavily based on Elder Tales", not a virtual world. Shiroe and the narration hammer that point a thousand times every volume since the first.

Poor pacing compounded with poor animation. Some big moments were very lackluster, and Kanami, Go East was squished into a single episode that took five minutes to make a frame for the story so we really only got about 16 minutes for an entire volume. The raid and the Akiba murder mystery needed to be paced better. There didn't feel like there was any tension and I felt that William's speech turned what was a nice scene in the LN to a long slog. It took like 10 minutes, didn't it?
>>
>>148227868
10 fucking minutes to basically say
""""""""""Us gamers huh xD""""""""""
>>
>>148227868
10 minutes? It was the whole fucking episode
>>
>>148228155
I think there was a recap and Shiroe being introspective for a couple of minutes or so, but either way, it was just too fucking long. It should have been a nice cap on the end of a fucking disaster and made the audience excited to see the next episode. The director was incompetent as hell.
>>
>>148211825
he is over exaggerating. yes, different studios often means changes overall, but often projects just get other workers from completely different studios to do work. kyoani one of the few that has been consistently in house for the most part lately

We need a season of more cat a d cat related content. And maybe the fake loli too, but the cat comes first.

I'm still mad that they spent like 5 episodes on Akatsuki angsting about teachings, gave the kids twice as much time as their storyline deserved, and spent whole episodes on things like speeches that don't have any real plot significance, and then compress all of Kanami's party's stuff into a single incredibly rushed episode that covered maybe half of the material they could have.
Most of the issues with Season 2's pacing would have been fixed by cutting an episode from Akatsuki's shit and the kids and giving them to Kanami. Kanami's party a best.

I didn't hate season 2, but it really didn't live up to its potential. The animation quality didn't help, but it wasn't the only nail its coffin or anything.
>>
>>148206327
it's funny how everyone says season two is awful, I did really enjoy season one, and going into the next one I enjoyed it enough at first, it was more though me just getting burnt out by the end of it, I don't think I finished the last two episodes, I mean it probably wasn't that great and I would have enjoyed it better if it was more engaging, but even now I don't feel like it was the show itself whenever I think back, I don't know, I mean it probably was but just looking at it myself I don't see it as bad, just below average

>Akatsuki is really cute
Well there is not much else to her than being cute.
She has usually little little to nothing to do when onscreen except punching Naotsugu.
The only reason I get from why Akatsuki should win the Shirou bowl, is because the opening and ending tells me to.
Seriously why can Mamare only write one of the main paring well?
Last time it was the woman, now it is the man.
