Arifureta Season 2 Episode 6 Review- Let’s Be Positive
Since the last episode wasn’t very good and the review reflected that by being extremely negative, let’s do something different and focus on the positives of the episode and the greater show this time around. It’s not like Arifureta is a show that doesn’t have good qualities, and if it tries, it is able to stand among the very best of its genre. Many times, Arifureta’s failures speak more about the staleness of the entire Isekai genre than the show itself.
The animation has seen a significant jump in quality from the first season. Season 1 of Arifureta was devastated by production issues to such an extent that the show had to be scrapped and remade after a lot of work had already been done. Thie lead to the resulting season being horribly rushed and featuring poor animation. Comparatively, the latest season looks positively fantastic. The environment and shading of the entire show have improved a ton, and the CGI doesn’t look awful. It is a pleasure to view the show in its current state; meanwhile, the first season was tough to take in.
The music of this season is also a treat to listen to. The OSTs are fun, varied and fit the tone of the characters’ various exploits very well. Whether it is exploring a dungeon or visiting the past to witness a bunch of murders in Arifureta Season 2 Episode 6, the show has a great OST for every scene. The opening and ending themes are also fantastic, especially the opening theme. The English verses infused with J-pop works phenomenally well to deliver one of this season’s best openings.
The world that the show has set up (other than our protagonists) is great. It feels vibrant and alive without the need to be chock-full of awful happenings for the show to be interesting in the first place. There are natural pathways for the story to go into without the need for our protagonists to be the only ones who can save the day. There is a ton of variety in locations and character designs, never to have a reason to repeat anything or to make a character boring.
Thus, it is baffling how the show manages to mess with all these positives in almost every episode. The latest episode of Arifureta Season 2 was also not very good, dealing with the worst dynamic in the show, the one between Hajime and Kaori. Its foundation doesn’t make much sense, and neither does its resolution. The episode doesn’t do anything interesting with the latest dungeon, and there is no real challenge for the characters to overcome. So far, the biggest challenge to this entire show has been a lack of substance and quality, which doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon.
Arifureta Season 2 Episode 6 was uninspiring and redundant, exactly like this entire season. There wasn’t much to write home about, and the show did what it does best- bore the tears out of its audience.
