Thousands of years ago, the ancient dragon Bahamut wrought havoc upon the land of Mistarcia, a world where both gods and demons live amongst mankind. Working together to prevent the world's destruction, the rival deities barely managed to seal Bahamut, agreeing to split the key between them so that the dragon would remain eternally imprisoned.

With the world safe from the destruction of Bahamut, it is business as usual for bounty hunters like Favaro Leone. Living a laid-back, self-serving lifestyle, the amoral Favaro goes about his work while on the run from fellow bounty hunter Kaisar Lidfard, a righteous man who swears vengeance upon Favaro. However, Favaro's carefree life is thrown into chaos when he meets Amira, a mysterious woman who holds half of the key to the world's fragile peace.

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis tells the story of a group of unlikely heroes who find themselves caught in the middle of an epic clash between gods and demons, forced to carve their own path in the face of the imminent storm.

I can start by saying that this is a good title. And by all indicators. Visual style, interesting story, memorable and unique characters.

But why is that? Haven't there been many anime released that are similar to the characteristics described above? Yes, there are incredibly few of them. Fantasy anime has long gone from creativity to clichés, the basis of which was laid by such titles as SAO, Slime, Overlord and other slag for the mass consumer, which is not distinguished by its originality.

The industry always strives to where there is more money. And if (for example) 10 years ago we valued the anime industry for ...

Mixed Feelings
If Genesis has a strong suit, it is the ambition behind it. A group of interesting characters set into a genuinely engrossing world, caught between the interests of multiple complex factions in a world-ending stakes game. Yes, not the most original of concepts, yet the mix of the chosen character archetypes and the quasi-medieval setting with heavy focus on heaven/hell mythology makes for a very solid base. Unfortunately, while one can see glimpses of this grand vision in Genesis, the final product strays far from it.

The ambition, which could have elevated this anime to top ranks, instead suffocates it. Too much happens in too little ...

Shingeki no Bahamut is a series that I don't seem to love as much as others, which I will explain in detail while trying not to spoil too much.

First of all, the music and art is great, presenting the show in a spectacular package. Even the occasional CGI monsters works for the most part, sticking out yet without looking lazy.

I was drawn in by the idea of bounty-hunting and the refreshing design of our swashbuckling main character, Favaro, who brings in just the right balance of charm and goofiness. The conflicting relationships he shares with everyone around him is also an unending spring of entertainment. ...
