  • Wonderful Show! More
    The show really starts to pick up mid seasons and has an array of characters. And the writer covers a lot of their bases. Love, War, Comedy, Action, you get just about all of it. The story develops quite well! I definitely feel like the story could have embellished more on the journey each other characters take although I am not disappointed with where the writer has taken the story thus far. In ...

  • Amazing ride with epic storytelling and characters you will love
    This show has many faces: epic storytelling, hidden philosophical ideas, some of the purest romance you can find nowadays, strategic battles, and moments of awe mixed with sadness. What's amazing is that while the show ultimately tells a grand and epic tale, in the end, what the viewers feel is the happiness and longing of leading a simple life with the ones you love. Long story short: ...

  • Cool design and story
    So I'm interested to read the original source for this show. I heard a lot of things were skipped and rushed through. It seems they wanted to complete the entire story in this 24 episodes (which they did) so they really sped through some plot. I think it could have been better if it had more episodes. Animation was okay, and the characters were likable.

  • Great Action. Stellar World Building.
    Record of Grancrest War was a great anime. It had a lot of depth to it. Though relying on some heavy tropes, the world is incredibly deep. The world definitely feels lived in. Though the action is entertaining and visually stunning, there were some moments in the anime that kind of dragged on. However, there were moments in this anime that really evoked an emotion. Because of this, characters ...

    Extremely rushed. Poor development.
    Very rushed show... had good potential, but the progression was just too quick. No time to appreciate any of the decisions or build any connection.

    Like one of the other reviewers/commenters mentioned, just the first few episodes of his ascension to power could have been a season in itself. Same goes with pretty much every single story that lasted 2-3 episodes...

  • Quite enjoyed this ride!
    One of those animes that kept me coming back every week and was worth remembering! This series took me across the spectrum of emotions from laughter to sadness. It has strong character development and elements of tactics and strategy within battles; of which I've been a fan of ever since Utawarerumono.

    PROS: Visuals/Art(except for one scene in the last episode and you'll understand if you ...

  • Pacing was too fast.
    Characters' personalities were on point. The plot was mediocre and the pacing was terrible. Too fast!!

    I recommend watching this show *if* they come out with a remake that has more episodes/seasons to properly spread out and fit all the story points...

  • Not a bad Fantasy, Adventure, Action anime
    Pretty decent. Nothing to big that really detracts from the whole show too much. But what I really want to talk about is how absolutely dope Milza-sama is.

    Seriously don't even bother having another character you like... Not even the all the anime titties ever drawn could change my about how awesome Milza-sama is.

    Powerful, Driven, Smart, Ruthless, Cunning, Ferocious, Suave and all around ...

  • A roller coaster of emotions
    This is one of those shows I would say "It feels so much like a shounen despite not being one". The main character has a... not great design? I mean its so busy in certain places and the green hair really contrasts against pretty much every single other character's slightly more realistic design. The magic system makes absolutely no sense whatsoever and isn't really explained all that well. ...

  • Intense and amazing euro high fantasy
    I thoroughly enjoyed the vast majority of this show, from the world building to character development (or lack thereof which was also fine). The action was the highlight, complete with sword dueling and army-level strategizing. There were some heavy moments but overall it was satisfying. And I really appreciate the fact that there was a beginning, middle, and solid ending. And no whiny/lame ...
