2015 was such a disappointing year that two of the most hyped second seasons within the community had to air in the same season just to make room for everything else. And as bad as Aldnoah Zero might have been, I doubt even that mess compares to the giant black hole that was once the flawed Enlightenment of five years ago.
Durarara!!x2 (especially Ten) is not just a bad sequel, it’s the bad sequel. So bad that its sales tanked massively, it barely ranked on APR after the first cour ended, the discussion boards were nowhere near as populous as they once were, and absolutely nobody who watched it was having any fun. And if they did, chances are they’re lying to themselves (that’s the only way I can buy into people actually thinking that Ten is better than Shou). Badly animated, terrible fight scenes, way too much dialogue, a growing cast of characters no one gives two shits about, and pacing that makes A-1 Pictures look like Shinichiro Watanabe, there is absolutely nothing to like about Durarara’s return whatsoever. And hopefully after Ketsu airs next season, we can put this particular franchise behind us forever.
