^ Good point, but we all saw how ugly things got without contexts so that’s what my comment was directed at.
Id say that Season 1 was the weakest link. The elimination of the joke panels in the manga didn’t help it, and while I can appreciate a serious story I don’t think that the few characters moments we get in such a fast paced story as this can be afforded to be sacrificed.
The only other con to this season was the storyline changes (that didn’t likely stem from censorship like Beryl being gutted). The SenxShi romance and conflict would have benefited from additional episodes because they felt flat with no development. Beryls backstory could have been more memorable had it received this treatment too.
Sticking closer to the manga for the next 2 seasons -even with its faults- worked in its favor and though I enjoyed season 1 I won’t pretend that the start was shaky.
It pains me to say this but Season 1 ruined the Dark Kingdom arc for me. The lack of cool moment's like Usagi's transformation into a groom, no funny moments, Moon killing Beryl and her necklace, and the stupid Senshi x Shittenou subplot ruined it for me. Plus, I hated the CGI transformations.
^ I won’t say that the romance wasn’t clumsily written but why is it THAT bad that they all cried after seeing four humans being obliterated right in front of them?
It’d be funnier if they were nonchalant but it was a perfectly normal way to react xD
