Synopsis

You're not alone. Whenever, forever.

Yuuta Hibiki is a first-year student in high school living in Tsutsujidai. One day, he wakes up without his memories. Yuuta later meets Hyper Agent GRIDMAN who is inside an old computer. GRIDMAN tells him to fulfill his purpose. Yuuta's quest to understand the meaning behind those words and to find his memories begins. While all of this is sudden, Yuuta has helpful assistance from his classmates, Shou Utsumi, Rikka Takarada, and Akane Shinjou, but...

Those peaceful days are destroyed mercilessly by a monster that suddenly appears.

Review focused on feelings and enjoyment.

* Summary:
- Story starts simple, but plot thickens by the time until it becomes as thicc as Takarada Rikka's thighs, the Heroine.
- Mystery element.
- Quality Waifu material.
- Tingly voice acting.
- Likable characters.


* Story:
- What's it about?
Basically, Mecha fighting each other with main villain and main protagonist-kun.
Is that really a villain? I'm not sure, but I don't really hate that villain!
Protagonist-kun has some simple Super Moves, and he's using some simple Super Mecha Weapons.

- Mystery:
Hibiki Yuta, the protagonist, lost his memories at the very beginning of the story.
GRIDMAN [protagonist-kun's Mecha horse] and KAIJU [enemy Mecha] appear out of nowhere, so what read more

This show is so under-rated. I don't know how it's rating is so low on MyAnimeList. Big shotout to PhenomSage for recommending.

It proves that you really can't judge a book by its cover, or review on MAL.

So to start off, a lot of you will probably look at this anime and think: "Ew, its UltraMan animated". This is for kids... Next.

But not so fast, while this anime does borrow a lot of inspiration from UltraMan, it is in a differnt league. The story is very fresh and creative, with it's own spin on the UltraMan genre that is obviously intented for a more mature read more

SSSesth Gridman is the newest name monster from the studio everyone knows and which creativity after Inferno Cop has been entirely limited to their ability to make up shitty names that don't mean anything. eSeSeSeS. Gridman's biggest achievement is confirming that the future won't be changing this to any direction, especially not for better.

Story:

Dude who has red hair starts hearing his computer talking to him and claiming he is this thing called Gridman while girl who he has never seen before in his life is now living with him or something. Then they start arguing over if the pc really talked. Less than half way read more

Simply too simple and bland.

SSSS.Gridman is really another Mechca anime genre that fails to deliver any good plot or even likeable characters at all. Now, I'm not saying all Mechca anime is bad because that's true. There are some good one out there... but there is more bad than good. SSSS.Gridman has such a simple plot. Kaiju comes, transform into Gridman, and done. Rinse and repeat pretty much. They might add a bit more "drama" to the mix but the formula wouldn't change since it's so simple. I'm not saying "simple" is also bad, anime such anime "Yuru Camp" is so simple but so satisfying read more
