Well, that was a finale of sorts I guess. Argevollen is clearly shooting for a second season that I’m not sure it’s going to get.
Argevollen remained a fairly intelligent mecha series to the end, with a strong “war is hell” message that it never quite lost focus on. The corporate conspiracies were never really resolved, and the series more or less ends up at the status quo ante in terms of the military and political situation.
Despite some solid character work right to the end, despite the relationship between Susumu and Jamie developing into a truly solid partnership of equals, the finale felt flat. There was too much setting up for a sequel, and not enough finishing what was already on the table.
I hope I’m wrong. At this stage I’m willing to watch a second season of Argevollen if one appears, but if it remains unfinished then it is probably a series that I’m not likely to watch again.
 Log Horizon was already an exploding franchise by the time the first anime screened, the momentum for the second season was always there.
