This is a mostly overlooked anime but for me this anime is a real masterpiece. this anime is an original production which is a really good thing but also a tricky thing to do since there is no source material to copy from meaning the creators have to come up with an interesting idea with great execution.

The creators of Granbelm have done all of these things perfectly and i have to say the outcome is great. An anime that has great story, art and characters all complete with vibrant colors that really make this anime come to life but most importantly the anime makes you read more

Original series, especially in anime are a dime a dozen, picking up on the trends of what anime has done well and not, and taking that into consideration, people of different creative mindsets come together to form these shows which have meta references across the board. And in the case of Granbelm, that standard holds tried-and-true.

If you watched last year's mech originals like Trigger's SSSS.Gridman or J.C.Staff's rendition of Satoshi Mizukani's Planet With, the formula of Granbelm is not hard to see, the only elephant in the room is the characters themselves as they serve the basis of the story (and the synopsis pretty much read more

Granbelm is your latest creatively bankrupt seasonal anime featuring bright haired anime girls with tragic backstories in chibi mecha. In essence, this work, by the director of the infamous Re:Zero, is an isekai (sort of) magical girl mecha battle royale where the last mage standing will get the mysterious macguffin that grants wishes. We are introduced to the protagonist Mangetsu who is your usual "do-no-wrong" character who mysteriously ends up in the Magical World despite only those with mage ancestry being able to, and totally does not have a super power lying dormant within her due to such ancestry with an ancient powerful mage. Mangetsu read more

The dark magical girl genre has been around ever since Madoka, so close to a decade. One could think everything has already been done before, but no, every once in a while a new one comes around that still has something new to show.
Granbelm is one of these series. It came up with an impressive combination, it is some sort of a dark magical girl mech battle royale show, something like a Holy Grail War but instead of masters and servants, with magical girls and mechs.

The dark magical girl part speaks for itself, if you like the genre you probably will enjoy Granbelm too. By read more

Granbelm is an interesting, original mecha show from the director of Re;Zero. TL;DR of the premise is effectively many girls put into a mecha battle royale to battle it out for the chance to become a mage. The 2d mech animation is wonderful and the 3d cg mech animation doesn't exist. The first thing that stood out to me about this show is of course, the mecha designs. They've been squished and rounded out compared to the giant hulking behemoths we're all used to. However, with this comes the amazing blessing of not having to deal with random cuts to CG to completely pull you read more

Granbelm is interesting because it's not normal.

When it tells you what it's going to do, Granbelm goes all-in and is over-the-top. When it doesn't tell you what it's going to do, and you try to guess based on the genre and anime logic you're used to, you end up wrong.

I'm not all that enthused by the plot (though depending on what happens in the last few episodes that may change), as Granbelm leans on several standard tropes. That said, Granbelm's execution of said tropes is always excellent: we know exactly what has to happen in episode 7 with angry girl, but the show read more
