Shuuichi Kagaya is what one would consider an average high school student, but sometimes, he turns into a monster. He doesn't know how or why he got his abilities, only that he would prefer no one knows about them. One night, he finds a building ablaze with a girl trapped inside. Deciding to save her, he transforms and carries her to safety, but accidentally drops his phone.

The next day, the girl he saved—Claire Aoki—finds him and confronts him about his monster identity. She even goes so far as to push him off the school roof to prove her theory after Shuuichi denies her allegations. Desperate to save himself, he transforms, and Claire snaps a picture in order to blackmail him into telling her everything he knows about monsters, which, ironically, isn't much.

As it turns out, Claire has a secret of her own: she has been searching for her sister, who also became a monster. She enlists Shuuichi's help to track her down, but they aren't the only ones searching for answers.

Are you ready?

I'm going inside. You're so sticky and wet. I'm going all the way in. It's so warm and fits just nicely. Does it hurt? We're one now.

I'm just a mere being wandering on the hellhole that is earth and as such, I don't deserve anything worthy of praise. But when Gleipnir knocked out my doorstep I straight away knew that this was the present I've always wanted. Yes, because Gleipnir is more than an anime - it's a new experience to be witnessed at least once in our dismal life. Something that would make our hearts go full uwu.

Gleipnir isn't the usual story. ...

Mixed Feelings
Imagine being a kid and one day you wake up to huge paws, an enhanced sense of smell, and a sudden hunger for freckled, crazy, blonde panties. For most people we call that puberty, for Shuichi it is literally a nightmare as he finds himself blackmailed and joined at the hip to a crazy freckled blonde named Claire who quickly entagles him and a brutal and violent death game.

Gleipnir's setup and its first initial episodes have the subtlety of a brick. From the get go you know what this is about. Shuichi turns into a big giant fursuit, and when Claire steps inside of him, ...

Gleipnir, what could we ever do in a world without you? A whole lot actually. For instance, I don’t have to suffer every week watching some kid in a creepy mascot animal outfit running around. Watching Gleinpir was not a pleasant experience and by unpleasant, I mean the type of unpleasant that makes you want to turn the television off.

First of all, let’s ask ourselves, just what the hell is Gleipnir? It’s not a real word but a creation made by Sun Takeda. With that out of the way, you may probably want to take a closer glance at the synopsis because it’s full of ...
