    I was wondering what happened with the second season. Although the first season was hit and miss with the whole “realistic” take, this one seems more outworldish. I am expecting awesomeness mainly because Tagawa is back!

      Completely agree with everything you said.

    It’s been a while since I saw the first season but this trailer seemed to have nothing to do with it.

      The first season was just their origins. It’s a youtube series, so just keep your hopes low and enjoy the ride.
