    Felt very average for this type of style
    I personally didn’t find the pacing too good, the art style is amazing but the plot is average at best for me. I hope it does develop more as it goes on! Just as of now plot is not very good, you just jump straight into the action without even getting much of a chance to have it explained with what’s going on or who’s important to the plot or not. Willing to change review if it gets better with ...

    It has real potential.
    Yall never watched a magical girl anime before? This seems like it’s a cool idea for now and we’ll see it pan out in later episodes. The action was a little hard to follow but it was explosive and didn’t bore me at all. I’m intrigued by the world and I think the ending there may be leading to something ominous and cool. Seemed hype to me based on the first episode alone.

    Magical Girls + Mechs + Highlander = WTF
    Pseudo-magical girls fight in mechs because There Can Be Only One True Magical Girl.

    The premise isn't particularly original, but not inherently bad, if the story is told well. Two episodes in, and it's a shaky start at best. There are lots of characters either screaming or with attitude/anger management issues and a high-intensity mech battle (with lots of angry character expressions to ...

  • An enjoyable magical-mecha show!
    Normally i don't go for these mecha shows but with an interesting premise of magically powered robots and some competent direction, good pacing, and nice character designs, i'm thoroughly enjoying this show. As of this review it has released to episode 6 and things have taken an surprising turn, again thanks to smart direction.

  • Weird pacing, but really enjoyable
    First episode was quite weird but I thought it can get better and I was right, still 5th episode worried me about next episodes. I'm glad I was wrong, 6th episode really hyped me up and I hope storytelling will get better from now on. It seems hard to show good story without soruce materials such as manga or light novel so I can understand some downslides from begining. Looking forward to next ...

  • Granbelm: Worth the watch
    The anime has an interesting story along with even more interesting character motives for doing what they do. There are some characters that are more vague than others obviously but they all (except the mc) share a passion for winning granbelm, a magic tournament where the winner gets to keep some cool mage powers. Mech fights are pretty good too.

  • LOVE IT!!! Not a masterpiece but definitely a must watch this season
    It's not a 5 star masterpiece, sure... but I love the art, pacing and story jumps can be a bit confusing at first but not too bad, good voice acting and original idea, each character has their own reason for fighting, and i am eager to see who wins!!

    Don't stop after the first episode.
    I can understand where some of the negative reviews come from, if you've only watched the first episode. It kind of feels lik a visuals focused OVA. The pacing initially matches that vibe of a standalone OVA, too. It's almost like a cold open that lasts an entire episode. Since it's not an established series or IP, you could argue that it doesn't earn it. But by the second episode the ground work ...

    Bad in a good way, or good in a bad way?
    1st ep was a little weak but it was very... pretty?... so I kept watching. From ep 2 onwards granbelm is good. The "2 episode" rule applies.

    "Pretty" and "Weird" are the best ways to describe this. The mecha designs would be cool, but the mecha are chibi. The tone is serious, but it's hard not to chuckle. The characters are kids, but the story is about adult problems.

    This series has ...

    Loved it! Great story of Mages
    Such an intruiging story, loved it! Just started watching Granbelm but already resonated very much. Loved how they portray the experience of being connected to another realm and all the rest which I wont go into. If you're interested in magic and mages this story is wonderful <3
