High school student and gamer Suigin Riku attends the prestigious Shinryou Private Academy, a school for the elite and the children of the wealthy. But rich or wealthy are not words that describe Suigin; in fact, he is dirt poor and must work many part time jobs to pay for his tuition. During one such job, he dives into a pool to save his pet cat, fully aware that he cannot swim. Luckily, he is saved by Rei Riku, the beautiful and popular daughter of a game developer, and he falls in love with her.

He is also drawn to another girl: a new friend he meets in Dungeon Century, his favorite online RPG. But when the game is scheduled to shut down, he knows his adventures with her will soon end. However, the day after the game is shut down, he finds out that Rei and the online girl are one and the same. Soon after, Rei gives Suigin a new game meant to replace Dungeon Century—a tomb raiding game called Grave Buster. But when Rei is suddenly kidnapped, Suigin is pulled inside Grave Buster to save her.

Gin no Guardian follows Suigin as he plays through Grave Buster to save Rei, while uncovering the secrets hidden within the game.

I've never felt the need to write a review before but I'll make an exeption for Gin no Guardian.

Beacuse it's just that bad.

At first look this anime may look decent, yet confusing. My advice: don't bother.

This anime is just all over the place, it tries to put a gazillion different elements into merely 10 min episodes and nothing makes sense in the end. I was cringing from the dialogue to the chracters and the dreadful pacing. Sometimes it really seems to try it's hardest with genuinely nice looking visuals but it's not enough to make this show even enjoyable.

My first review...
Beginning of the show started out strong (first couple episodes) and showed some promise.
The shorter episodes left a bitter taste. I didn't even know anime episodes could be this short.

Story line jumped all over the place and was full of holes not to mention continuously adding new characters out of no where.

I'd like to know how if the new game just started and Suigin was the first to get the console/game how he could be the most amateur/newb out there with no knowledge of this game compared to everyone around him...like wtf. Not to mention he started out read more

STORY: 6/10
ART: 9/10
SOUND: 9/10

‘Gin no Guardian’ is an anime that resorts to ‘Not overexerting itself’, meaning they go ahead with everything they are comfortable with while leaving out the rest for later! The story is a little confusing in the beginning since the show makes a point of jumping around with their narrative. You start at a strange place with the MC, who’s in this ‘Cool and OP’ stage, as he’s wiping out enemies left and right after which the story jumps right back to its opening where the said MC is just another typical student! These ‘Jumps’ aren’t used a lot, read more

Hello there,

I never thought i would write a review but i'll make an excepetion for this one here.

First of all , Don't bother watching it because you'll just waste your time trying to comprehend what the **** is happening.

When i saw the cover art i thought it would be decent, and i said in my mind why not trying an new anime but it was just painful to watch.

So i'll say it again, don't watch it, you can try but i warned you.

If someone has any good recommendations, please leave a comment in my profile, cuz i need something to recover my brain with read more
