Is it worth watching Darling in the FranXX?
Below I want to give my opinion on Anime Darling in the FranXX and talk if it really is worth watching. Although I think most of them must have seen him, some are still reluctant and others are newcomers to the anime world.
O Genus Meka it doesn’t usually attract all anime fans, some just run in that genre, I’m not as close to the genre myself, although my favorite anime are mecha like Aldnoah.Zero, Gurren-Lagann and Code Geass.
Despite this, both works mentioned have several things in common that manage to arrest viewers. The focus is not on the mechas, the anime has a very interesting background plot that involves comedy, action, psychological, romance and drama. A positive point for Darling in the FranXX!
At first I felt bad and reluctant to watch the anime, mainly because of memes related to fan service and ecchi which is not even present, just alludes to the polluted mind. After the tremendous success and many hype I decided to give it a try and I loved every episode.
Darling in the Franxx also has script changes like in Gurren-Lagann-style anime that takes the viewer by surprise regarding the history and origin of the universe. There are scenes in this anime that you will really cry. The anime covers several serious topics like slavery, prejudice, rules and torture, pregnancy and others.
In conclusion, I got really bad with anime, but it was because it ended, I was too sad, I cried a lot, I couldn't sleep and every anime touched my heart a lot. The anime has a very sad story and footprint, each episode surprises you more with the story of the characters, their passions, love triangles and more.
It doesn't matter if you don't like giant robot anime or ecchi, this anime is totally different from the others, an anime that really has a story, that even leaving the edges of reality can impress anyone who watches. My grade for this anime is 98 out of 100 just because I don't want to be partial.
Second Season of Darling in the FranXX?
A New History Begins! The anime ends with this information which left many in doubt of a possible continuation. Some even mistook it for a pre-announcement of a sequel. Many want to see Zero Two and Hiro again, but everyone understood that it was not them in the end.
Despite this, we don't want you to lose hope. The story ended pretty, it bothered some with an ending, but it ended well! All the problems were solved ... Of course, because it is an original work, it can happen as in Code Geass, which received several films and even a resurrection.
Unfortunately I want it to be realistic, the chances of a new season are very low. If it happens, the anime will have to start from something different, the story and war is over, what will happen in the future?
There are two situations that make fans curious about a sequel. First, the supreme leader of the VORM did not die, and declared war in the near future. Others realized that Princess Urrosaurus did not die, she simply disappeared.
So there is a possibility of a new season, it's up to the author to decide if he wants to change the work, which can be a little difficult. The anime and manga sells well, generated money and was successful, has everything to have a continuation or second season, they will only have to touch the main characters who were born again.
The Best Final in the Darling in the FranXX Manga
The story of Hiro and Zero Two in the manga is quite different at the end of the anime. In the manga, Zero Two and Hiro do not die and live a normal life with the rest of the parasites left on Earth. This is a unique view of the ending, but it doesn't really reveal much about the pair's future.
In fact this is the best ending for the work, without involving reincarnation beliefs that they put in the anime, this allows friends to stay together instead of reading the pain of death. If you're looking for a happier ending than what was shown in the anime, manga is the way to go.
Mitsuru and Hiro promised to fly together when they were younger, while this is never done in the anime, the manga lets it happen. Hiro forgot that promise during his memory clearing, but made sure to keep it in the manga, for many fans to delight with this yaoi moment.
The end of the manga left some things out, it was very rustico, but at least nobody died in space, they were close together on earth. Some secondary characters have been left out, but their future can be seen in the anime.
Facts and curiosities about Darling in the FranXX
We had several easter eggs, curiosities and facts that went unnoticed by some viewers that we intend to list below:
Hiro had his personality erased, he is horrible in art and in drawing that may be related to the rewriting of his personality. Did you know that in real life the voice actors of the English version of Hiro and Ichigo are married? The book that Hiro likes to read in the anime is called The Golden Bough.
Hiro and Zero Two married in the anime - 002 appears in the last episodes with a wedding dress in space and says that the two are on their honeymoon together. Although it is not a civil ceremony, the authors wanted to make it clear to fans that the two were married.
The names of the episodes are symbolic and I usually summarize with a word. The names of urrosaurs also refer to real life things like moho a type of extinct bird.
The nuclei of the urrosaurs closely resemble the nucleus of the Evangelion angels, this is just one of the many similarities between the anime. That's because much of the Darling in the Franxx team also worked on Evangelion.

If you liked Darling in the FranXX and are looking for other similar animes, we recommend those already mentioned in my analysis of the work and others similar. See my recommendations and comparisons below:
This anime is very similar to Darling in the FranXX in the romance and mecha genre, it has some problems like all anime, Darling is not free of problems, many did not like the change in the story and the reaction of some characters during the romance and problems.
Many believe that Darling in the FranXX had some inspirations from Eureka Seven and Zero Two has a lot of similarities with Anemone. They are practically identical, both in hair, style, clothing and characteristics.
The story shows a young man named Renton Thurston who lives a monotonous life, but one day his life is turned around when he encounters an unusual girl riding a mecha.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
One of my favorite animes, it has a very similar grip with Darling in the FranXX, with a romance, unexpected things in the story and an ending that also makes you cry and leaves you depressed for weeks. Many things are similar in this anime as traits and submissive humanity.
Actually the same Studio who made Darling in the FranXX also made Gurren Lagann and also other anime that come out of reality like Kill la Kill. Even though A-1 Pictures played a large part, the story is credited to the studio Trigger.
In this anime two great friends who live underground digging holes dream of the surface. One day when they encounter a robot, several things happen and they discover the true truth about the surface. (Only with this synopsis, you cannot know anything about this great work).
This anime has a perfect soundtrack composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, its features are beautiful and impressive and the story involving the war between humans and Martians (who are actually humans) can show different faces of humanity.
The anime also has a background novel involving a love triangle between a princess, a human and a martian who manages to hold on throughout history accompanied by a beautiful soundtrack that makes any grown man cry. The anime is also of the mecha genre, but does not have as much focus on them.
