"Animes" isn't a word. Anime is both the singular and plural noun, like fish and moose.

Actually in fish, fishes is plural when talking about multiple species and fishes' covers plural possessive.

There are a few I can name, though I'll ignore series that appeared to be planned for split seasons from the beginning and think of them more as 1 season.

Aria the Origination was better than both season 1 and 2. Though this benefits greatly from being the season closing out the story so more character events occur as the trio being undines.

Full Metal Panic: TSR over FMP Season 1. I like both a lot, but whenever I go to revisit the series I always reach for my TSR blu-rays over FMP S1. It lacks the humorous parts of the first season, but the action story arcs are absolutely amazing. Especially when they are in the middle east.

After Story is better than Clannad. At least the last half to 2/3rds of it. It benefits greatly from being able to focus on 1 story for the majority of the time.

Nanoha A's is better than the first season of Nanoha in almost every single possible way,. More excitement, more action, and <3 Signum.

Madoka Magica.

Monogatari series

Hidamari Sketch

Aria The Animation

Ichigo Mashimaro

Yuru Yuri.

Love Live School Idol Project

Well, that makes 7 of my favorites, in which all turned out to be better the more seasons they got. Now let's see how NonNonBiyori 2 does when it airs. (There are plenty more tho.)

As I've said before, the first series laid the foundation, but A's built the house.

I remember my reaction after first viewing the initial episode of A's was essentially, "Damn, this anime is off to a fast start".


Also, like TsunLemon, I'm more of a Vita fan. Much of that is due to StrikerS, however.

My bad, I misread the title as "sequel" instead of "second season". ^^;;

I prefer the original Anime over the remake movies, but Rebellion was too beautiful.

Shakugan no Shana's third season was amazing (except the ending). Better than season 1 and way better than 2.

Its an unpopular opinion, but for me personally, Love Chuunibyou, and Other Delusions: Ren was better than the first season.

I thought the second season of Rozen Maiden was better than the first. I have not yet seen the third season though.

I'll also agree with those above who said Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's and Clannad After Story

Some people mention Aria, which pleases me, but I personally loved all three seasons of Aria. I do feel like the second season Aria: the Natural is probably my favorite though. Who knows, maybe that's just because its longer lol

Yes that's like peoples, but I was talking about something like "a school of many fish" all of the same species, similar to "a queue of many anime."

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san. I still loved both of the seasons, but the second season was a tad bit better.
