Synopsis

On his high school graduation day, Itsuki's cousin, Mahiru, tells him that she's pregnant. Just then, a gate of light emerges and transports the two into the world of Granvania. In this land, "Impurities" have been causing a disturbance to the Stars, ultimately plunging Granvania into chaos and disorder. And Itsuki, now revealed to be one who is fated to meet with the "Star Maidens," is seen as Granvania's last hope and was thus given the task to produce "Star Children" and combat the "impurities." And unless the task is complete, Itsuki may never be able to return home.

Warning : This anime was made to be enjoyed drunk, and boy it is a ride.


Postmodern Masterpiece,
I especially liked the deconstruction of humor and genre.
You never know what to expect until the crossover with Gurren Lagan and Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

Everything from the start to the finish is great. At first the anime try to trick you into thinking it's some lewd fantasy and then it become clear right at the end of ep 1 that this won't be the case.
Rather than that, the story is a commentary about the very notion of purity, it makes us rethink about the way we think about ...

It's funny through absurdity, cringe, misplaced popcultural references and deeply uncomfortable plot developments that together made you question how anyone was insane enough to write it down, and especially to make it into an anime. If you ever expect it to follow some kind of ...

I watched this show in 2020 and no hate if you like this show. But for me, I must admit this is honestly still the worst show I have watched completely thus far.

But in all honesty, for me, this was so bad, watching it made everything feel dull immediately after. Like when you feel extremely bored, and can do nothing about it because everything seems tasteles.
But if you are wondering if you ...
