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.

As I had seen many different opinions about this Anime I decided to write my review. It is spoiler -free so, if you want to know, if it is worth or not to see - then I'll try to tell you. Also I'm gonna tell something about opinions that I've seen because it's connected to each other. Let's start then!

First of all, if you are looking for a ambitious story - then you should watch something else. If you just want an addictive story, then you can watch it. The plot of the anime is "simply complicated". First season of Gin no Guardian is ...

Mixed Feelings
Starts strong with the first two episodes setting up what seems to be a great story. Unfortunately after that they just kinda forget about all that and start making entire episodes on random other people with nothing to do with plot set by the first 2 episodes. Honestly the MC is not even the character you see the most.

I give it 5/10 because I like the MC, art and animation is decent, but the story and plot are basically non-existent. Maybe this would make sense if it was the first 12 episodes of a 50 episode series, but with just these 12 I just ...

This has no spoilers! But it does cover both seasons.

If you are looking for a show that has good anything really, you're in the wrong spot. This show was really bad and when I say bad I mean really bad. The story was forgettable and that in my opinion is one of the worst things an anime can do, Be forgettable... If the story was good maybe you could get some pleasure of some type from watching this but here is my honest statement please do not watch this without reading reviews first. Its painstakingly bad and from what I have seen its not even ...
