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).

"GIBIATE" by Yoshida Brothers feat SUGIZO

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 ...

I WATCHED THIS ANIME SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO. My brother gave up on this anime at episode 1 and told me, "Gibiate? More like jebaited with hot trash!" I pushed through per episode, hoping I’d get something good out of it. It did not even turn out to be the kind of “so bad it’s good” anime. Let me tell you all about this dumpster fire.

Art 1/10:
There's like 5 or more art “styles” in this anime. If that isn't enough to send a cluster of red flags for your brain, then I'd also mention the naturally terrible mix of these art styles. Perhaps it's ...

After Gibiate, Mars of Destruction looks like a solid 10/10.

2030, a not-so-distant future, but a story that can easily become a reality in 10 years. The whole world is infected with a virus that depending on your sex, age and race, turns you into a monstrosity. The story takes place in Japan, where a group of people are fighting the infected monstrosities and are trying to find a cure for the virus.

Do you remember the low budget sci-fi movies from the 1980s? They are trying so hard to touch upon some interesting topics, however, all the philosophy they have is hardly discussion-worthy, the horror elements ...
