Sound like both of the contributors had mixed feelings about the second half of this season, but as whole, this honestly sounds like anime-of-the-decade material. It's great to watch something truly, sincerely ludicrous from time to time.

I think Baki is the first time I’ve seen a shone protagonist have sex.

Or better yet express any sort of visible romantic & sexual feelings to another living human being.

Honestly I wish other shonen would do this. Not having sex but just being more comfortable with the concept of romance in general.

I mean if Baki can do it anyone can.

I actually liked the 2nd part way better than the first. Biscuit Oliva is a cool character is fun to see, and the ugly CG was taken out of the show mostly besides the shows OP. While the action can be good, this show is at its best when the narrator or weird cuts to explain things are constantly happening and there is just so much of that here. I seriously can't wait for more of this.

This is going to sound like a somewhat weird request, but.... if anyone has a bigger version of the "through extreme doping" image in this conversation, could you mail it to me? ^^;;

Honestly i've always knew that about anime in general especially nowdays more than ever, that's why i prefer to read manga because its waay more common among shonen like protagonist to desire closeness and warmth with a female that they like, i feel sex is a beautiful romantic thing that can add massive character growth & development i think shonen boys should care more about, it doesn't have to be sexually erotic but at least have mc's be conscious of it, instead we get this weird disgust of pure lust and rapey like perspective on sex if its even brought up at all in anime nowdays in the current landscape.
