Why I made this topic:
I wanted to have a big discussion of anime that have a main focus of fantasy in them. Be it well known or not so well known I want you to describe it. I plan watching all the anime provided if I haven't already. If I like them and if I'd recommend them to anyone, I'll put it under the "Coolio" section. If I don't like it and I'd never recommend it, then I'll put it under the "Not so coolio" section.
Coolio
Grimgar Of Fantasy and Ash
Legend of Arslan
Granblue
Not so coolio
Snow White with the Red Hair
Isekai Shokudou

A few off the top of my head:

Grimgar Of Fantasy and Ash is exceptional and a definite recommend.

Granblue is decent. Starts strong but ends up weak and rushed. Still worth a watch if you're looking for anything fantasy though.

Legend of Arslan is a very good watch, and the setting makes it not exactly your traditional fantasy. I prefer the really cool art style of the original Arslan series so if you can find that, watch it too.

Snow White with the Red Hair
is way more romance than traditional fantasy, but it's really good romance and is well worth a watch if you're cool with that.

Isekai Shokudou has the trappings of fantasy but is otherwise a boring and pointless bad food porn show. Don't be fooled. Not worth watching.

I really enjoyed the first three you talked about but the last two were really boring and it didn't even grab my attention. I legit started playing a NES emulator on my separate monitor to make sure I don't go insane from boredom.

Well, that's sort of rude.

You probably wouldn't enjoy the sorts of shows I'd recommend, then.

(.... though tbh I do sort of agree with you on those two boring shows. Though, I thought Arslan was sort of boring and repetitive, too... good seiyuu, though.)

Outbreak Company?

Rage of Bahamut - if Road to Eldorado and DnD did the fusion dance.

Garo the Animation - darker, more seinen fantasy story where knights with magic armor hunt down demons in a setting based on inquisition era Spain.

Darker than Black - more urban fantasy than high fantasy, but fun if you enjoy criminal power struggles involving people with crazy abilities and some introspection.

Baccano - an achronological story about prohibition era mobsters who unintentionally eun up against immortals and the ability to become immortal. It's one crazy, gory train ride.

Seisen Cerberus - did you enjoy Army of Darkness and want some decsontructionist humor in your fantasy? Try this one out. Even has Kirito's va voicing a swordsman in black who is completely incompetent to top off the meta humor.
