There's a high fantasy story here somewhere, but so long as they keep the main girl's hands, collar bones and feet bare, I'll keep watching.

For trash based on a mobile game, this is surprisingly decent.

I feel like they just put shots of Lyria's feet in the first episode to lure in viewers. That's very dishonest, but the midget girl is so cute I almost don't mind.

First ep was okay, but there was an autistic little voice in the back of by head that kept screening at me about how questionable the MC's actions were. Saving a cute innocent girl from an evil empire is great and all, but lets take a second look at this scenario here: This guy sees a huge battleship fly by, followed by an explosion and something falling out of it. He investigates and finds a girl who shouldn't have survived the fall let alone without a scratch. She says she was locked up in what sounds like a jail cell before escaping. Soldiers/nights of some sort quickly arrive on the scene looking for her and tell him to step aside.
What is the logical conclusion and action here?
A. This girl might be dangerous despite her looks, you should be cautious of them.
B. Something here doesn't add up, you should ask some questions and find out what's going on.
C. Think with your dick, murder the soldiers, and take the girl with you.
That said Those soldiers done fucked up when they grabbed that little girl. Killing them was fair game at that point.

Definitely not AOTY but I really enjoy the Japanese version of Western fantasy, so this scratches an itch.

Yeah, but something along those lines is such a common setup for adventure stories that it's hard to fault him for it. Wearing a hoodie with armor,though? That shit's unforgivable.

You know, when I first saw this guy the second thing I thought to myself was "why is he wearing armor on his legs and arms but not his torso? In a fight, wouldn't that area be much more vulnerable and worth protecting?"
>> No. 28524 [Edit]
Yeah I know it's a common adventure trope. That's why I tried to shut that voice up best I could.

Any sense of armor being anything other than a purely cosmetic item went out the window when he was wearing the armor while chopping wood.
>> No. 28526 [Edit]
That my friend was the first thing I noticed. Although at the time I thought to myself "maybe he's just training and wearing partial armor to get used to it?"
>> No. 28532 [Edit]
Maybe he's seen The Wizard of Oz and didn't want to end up like the Tin Man. Chopping wood can be pretty dangerous.
>> No. 28545 [Edit]
If that's the case he should carry some oil with him.

I get it, it's a fantasy show,

but come the fuck on,

>> No. 28627 [Edit]
Aren't there ships in starwars that do that too?
>> No. 28628 [Edit]
To look cool, I guess. Why does it have propeller-kajiggers all over it? I kind of thought that big balloon thing that the "ship" is suspended from was a balloon. Isn't this really a hooded-out blimp?

I'm starting to honestly love this show. It kind of reminds me of some forgotten B-grade OVA from the early Nineties.

I think they might actually be rudders.

And now we get genki and kuu lolis joining the cast, and a cameo of a horned elf.
This show just gets better and better as it goes.

>I think they might actually be rudders.
That's much more reasonable.
>> No. 28730 [Edit]

I've realized something:
When you've got Wizards up the wazoo, why would anyone wear mundane armor instead of enchanted armor?
The explanation is that the effectiveness of typical fantasy "armor" has nothing to do with its material characteristics. Instead, it is actually enchanted with the local equivalent of Mage's Armor. The appearance, then, is just fashion.

So far, this is the best mobile game adapted into an anime to date.

Easily one of the better video game adaptions.

Half the final episode spent showing off additional characters from the other routes, which was nice, but the animation quality really took a nose dive.

I'm curious how the epilogue episode will be. Obviously, it's going to show off the cast following the other granblue MC, but will it go for the open ended prayer that a second season will be funded, or just a fanservice episode and a "thanks for watching"?

The sharknado was amusing though.

Not like there's been that many. This anime is great and all but I'm not sure if I'd go that far anyway. I mean Kemono friends was pretty great too, and not sure if it counts but Ange Vierge was a pretty decent strike witches clone.

This is a damn good anime.

I've been watching it and while it hasn't really smacked me in the face and made me think 'wow, I really want to hit up TC and talk about this', it's certainly been a surprisingly good ride.

the animation quality and art style alone had me sold from ep 1. It's a shame the animation quality took a nose dive in eps 11 and 12, but they made up for that in the beach epilogue.

The story not being garbage was certainly a plus, but wouldn't have really stopped me from watching it.
>> No. 28990 [Edit]
For me the artstyle wasn't particularly notable. I feel like I've seen it a few times before, though I couldn't tell you where, I'm a bit under the weather at present so my recall is not as I'd like it to be. I liked the backgrounds and the colours though. That's what stood out to me about it. You make very valid points though, I think that the reason KF did knock my socks off while this was 'solid but not amazing' to me was that I was expecting KF to be rubbish while Granblue Fantasy started off with decent visuals and didn't appear to be a cheap, crappy adaptation.

I loved this anime, it was fantastic and enthralling, and I don't understand the general complaints it got regarding it being mediocre or having underdeveloped plot. I disagree entirely. The characters themselves are the usual cliched JRPG stereotypes, but they are all cute and charismatic in their own way, to the point those cliches don't feel that forced nor unauthentic, specially when you're supposed to take this series in as projection of how a JRPG would play as an anime.

For example, when they reach the second town, and the little cutie is there waiting for them, it reminded me of that typical NPC that is everywhere and gives you missions or chats. The world feels as alive as any good RPG and they projected perfectly the feeling of people (at least in my case) who really get into the game. With the art sytle, the instrumentation, the music direction, etc. it's impossible not to feel this was a love letter to RPG fans and it shows that the people who made it have a true passion for the genre. Starting from the first episode, the characters "defeat" (i.e. kill) the enemies with magical achievement, there is no blood and it makes you forget it as something that is relevant besides progression. Whatever can be said about this series in general, it has to be admitted that the people in charge understood fully the effect a game has on a player, including the mental gymnastics that the player applies to keep enjoying the game, and emulated that feeling perfectly.

With that said, the series ends on episode 12, and then the episode 13 is a warped, fan-service, retelling of the events using the female MC instead of the male one you have seen for the all the previous. I found very bothersome because there wasn't any indication it would happen, so I was excited for the last episode only to find it's a shallow, CGDCT version of what you have already seen, but with an entirely different character and story dynamic, which imho detracts from the overall series. Same goes for the 14th (special) episode that was bundled with one of the BDs.

The story progresses from the viewpoint of you projecting into Gran and becoming the JRPG hero. Like a game, a story has to progress from somewhere, so it's intentionally shoe-horned.
Another nod to JRPGs, where characters almost never change outfits regardless of what they're doing. Including sleeping, bathing, eating, gardening, etc.
Lol. I thought the same thing.
BD improves thing quite a bit. Unfortunately at the time of this comment, only 6 out 13 episodes from the BD have been scene-released (i.e. no English subtitles).
