I think seasons 2 and 3 of Attack on Titan are much better than season 1. The artstyle is a big improvement (I'm not into season 1's style of the slightly bold outlines drawn on the characters), and has a lot more interesting and surprising plot twists.

Not to mention that season 3 part 1's "Red Swan" and "Akatsuki no Requiem" are so far my all-time favorite themes from Attack on Titan! Season 1's "Guren no Yumiya" and "Utsukushiki Zankoku na Sekai" aren't good to me, sorry. I find "Jiyū no Tsubasa" pretty good, but "great escape" is forgettable.

Season two of AOT is better than season one because they don't spend half the show moving a giant boulder.

K-on? Natsume? Those two surprise me. The rest doesn't. Well.... I haven't finished Osomatsu-san season 2 yet but I hear a lot of complaints about it.

16. Higurashi: When They Cry


The anime-only crowd strikes again.

That being said, I think most of the rest of this list is pretty agreeable.


Well, the title specifically mentions anime and seasons, so it sounds like manga and/or light novels aren't really supposed to apply here.

I honestly think like 90% of all sequels are inferior.... It's much harder to find one that's BETTER than the first season

It's even harder to find a sequel that most many anime review sites and anime forums have a near universal agreement of "Yes, this sequel is better than the first season. Here are some reasons why".
