The story takes place in Japan. The year is 2030 and Earth has been completely overrun by a viral disease named "Gibia" that turns infected people into various different monsters, based on their age, sex, and race.

A samurai and a ninja from the early Edo period travel together through time and arrive in a ruined Japan to aid a professor working on a cure for the virus.

Together, they fight countless Gibia monsters, outlaws, and other fierce foes on their journey to save mankind.


Gibiate was created by GIBIATE Project, a global IP development group consisting of internationally renowned Japanese creators such as Yoshitaka Amano ("Final Fantasy"), Naoki Serizawa ("Biohazard" / "Resident Evil"), Yuzo Koshiro (composer of "Ys" and "Act Raiser"), Yoshida Brothers (world-renowned shamisenist group) and SUGIZO (guitarist from LUNA SEA/X JAPAN).

So, i just watched ep 1, 2 and 12 in 4x Speed and it was amazing, i got extremely attached to the characters, the plot was amazing and i cried at the end.

I can't understand why people dislike this anime so much, sure if you are a CGI hater you won't like it that much but the CGI was top notch.

One of the best and most badass main characters I have ever seen, a cast of brilliant characters and the best final villain I have ever seen.

10/10 It's much better than Fullmetal, give this number 1 on MAL.

Mixed Feelings
Honestly, i discovered that people didn't like this series throught Ex-arm's reviews. Honestly, nothing really bother me that much, if not that the plot was predictable, as any shounen that we all know, and that the fights are meh, but not that bad as to be compare to ex-arm's ...
Or maybe is it because that i listen way more than watch anime ? Anyways, my 6 is a 100% feeling about this show, meaning that, i didn't found any enjoyment in this, but is wasn't that bad all along. I still watch it from the beggining to the actual end. Worst part would be ...

Hayao Miyazaki once said: "Anime was a mistake." And it IS true to some extent to some people who are particularly OVER-ambitious a.k.a. Gibiate, created and produced by "the (unknown) man, the myth, the legend" that is Ryo Aoki that was announced during last year's Anime Expo. And I have to say this because it's just "so bad it's good" hilarity of a nonsense, dumpster fire: "WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS A GIBIATE???" OOPSIES, you got GI(JE)BAITED BIG TIME!

I mean, just look at the show's background info that MAL has given us: top-of-the-class creators and makers in various industries, all coming together to create a ...
