Did you just not watch the show? The distinguishing characteristic was showing the world you can solve a problem without compromising. It contrast with the first season when Favaro sacrificed the dragon woman to stop Bahamut, while Nina made no such compromise, instead offering up her own life as well to solve the problem. The resolution reinforced this as the right way to live. Kaiser died displaying this too. It showed the folly of the Gods and Demons at the same time.
Favaro even literally describes this word-for-word at the end of the series for the brainlets watching. It had a moral, it had a resolution, it had everything that makes up a story.
The show is so goddamn formulaic in its storytelling that I could write a term paper or journal on it and use that to teach a literature class. That is one of its faults (being predictable as a story) but it is a RARE example of a competantly told story in anime. Most anime is mixed business and nonsense with heavy exposition.
Shitposting isn't a productive use of time friend.
