Personally, apart from my dismay that the entire first season was set up as a bait for a second season of Hellbound, I was still a big fan. Hellbound was not just a conversation about religion and morality but it also talked of corruption and desperation. It expounded on the concept of free will and how humankind regards it in their daily lives. It left the conversation wide open on the gray areas between good and evil. It prompted a lot of reflection, and its a huge thing for a supernatural series to hit its mark so deeply that its message resonates and applies to the real lives of the audience.
The second half of Tokyo Revengers Season 1 was all about loyalty and friendship. Baji to the Founding Members, Chifuyu to Baji, and on the flipside was pure treachery, and at its center was Kisaki. While episodes 1-13 was filled with multiple deaths, the continuation left no doubt that the Tokyo Manji gang is still faced with even more tragedy in its past and in its future. I have half a mind to read the manga now to answer all of my questions but I fear that it will destroy the suspense that I’ve built up for the anime.
All in all Deadpool 2 was very consistent with the first movie, and was super entertaining with the script and the amazing action sequences. But it stopped short of being great when it refused to take itself seriously, even for a bit. And if you treat an entire movie as a joke, it gets monotonous after a while, and you lose sight of why you were rooting for it in the first place. Having said all that, Deadpool was still a solid addition to the franchise and managed to correct some booboos made by the Wolverine Origins movie in the post credits. Hopefully, next time, there would be a better balance of humor and seriousness to make Deadpool the compelling hero he is in the comic books.
