Its just episode 2.5, it doesn't contribute to the main story, its not something that teaches a lesson, its not about the struggle of overcoming your flaws or becoming closer to the people you care for.

This is about heart. not love, not friendship or kindness, but of the heart of a true man. It is a story of the yearning of the soul, for what can never be attained, a story of the struggle of men, and doing what must be done. It isn't about winning or losing, nothing so juvenile. It is about doing what is right, and staying true to read more

This was a nice little extra to enjoy, didn't take anything from the anime itself, built slightly onto the end of an episode, and made a nice, though forgettable comedic extra.

The Beatboxing at the start of the episode set the light for it, the fact it wasn't supposed to be taken seriously, and it was just a lighthearted gesture to cheer people up due to things that happen later in the anime, allowing us a soft respite of laughter from a otherwise rather serious and dark anime.

All in all, if you want a laugh, give it a watch, it's only 11 minutes long so what read more

Not even worth a watch, doesn't brings anything new to the story or even character development, well besides making the male cast look more immature and juvenile. Weird and awkward dialogues doesn't make it easier to watch and they're painful to go through.

Animation is average and nothing special, but what can you expect from something that it's only 11 minutes long?

As for the music, well it's annoying and unbearable to listen to and the whole idea for it it's just pathetic and stupid. A very poor attempt to show series in a new light and make it funny.

A prime example of an animated garbage and read more

The world is full of tragedy, a tempest that we must overcome through the repetitious tasks of everyday life. Scrambling at the bottom of society in a harsh reality, the only respite men can attain is hidden in the bountiful flesh of cute animated women. On such a fateful day, a very special episode of Grimgar was made to sate the thirst of the public.

Alas, the greatest calamity of all – one born from the misguided desires of creators and corporations – is when a creation doesn't serve any purpose. Utilizing post-modern self-consciousness, this special episode comes oh so close to being a neat parody, read more
