Clannad After Story
Sword Art Online II (mainly because of the ALO half)
Love Live!
Digimon Adventure 02

There are probably a few more I can't think of.

White Album 2 is far better than White Album 1 IMO.
Also:
Grisaia
Monogatari series
SNAFU / Oregairu

If you ignore the Endless Eight (and really, there's no reason to watch all of them anyway), The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya gets better as it goes along as well


I'm not going to forgive them for those six wasted hours hoping, "oh maybe something better will happen this time?" You can't judge Haruhi second season without taking into account those eight wasted episodes.

Tsukimonogatari beat the other seasons pretty easily.

Free! Eternal Summer was much better than the first season, imo. The characters got more fleshed out, there was character development, and there was an actual story other than "Rin moved back from Australia! He and Haru are rivals! They must race against each other!" or something like that.

Higurashi Kai, Symphogear G, Nanoha A's, Shakugan no Shana 2nd (imo), Haganai, Hello KinMoza!!, Working!!, Railgun S (by miles), White Album 2 (though feels like more of a spin-off). I think you get the point, though. It's not that uncommon for a lot of shows to have a way better 2nd season, especially with a lot of adaptations where the first arc isn't really the greatest and just meant to introduce everything before it gets into the real meat of the story. That's the case in a good amount of the shows I listed.

Gintama - I consider that the 2nd season started at epi 51
Silver Spoon
Chihayafuru
In a way SAO (GGO I disliked but MR was very very good)
FMA
FMA Brotherhood

2nd seasons as good as the 1st

The 12 Kingdoms
Crest/Banner of the Stars

Usually I find that most 2nd seasons are quality. In long animes I find that it usually gets old sometime around season 3.

*thinks*

Speaking in terms of seasons, rather than series, I am obliged to say that the second half of Gundam ZZ actually isn't that bad, though the first half is a (literal!) joke.

Clannad: After Story
Oregairu Zoku
Haganai Next

The second season of K-On was as good as the first, all of the Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei sequels were as good as the first season.

A lot of them are just good shows getting better with time. For one that was dramatically different, I'd go to a real oldie with Dominion: Tank Police.
