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).

You may like one painter, and hate another, but usually they're both talented individuals and what you like is just personal preference.

This show is just bad.


I wanted to end the review on that note, but it's apparently too short.
It's like a rich kids' school project. It's written as if a 12-year old winged it in 30 minutes at school. It's directed as if a 12-year old asked his dad to do it and the deadline was this Friday. There was no time to think about the characters, so they just took them from the kids' drawings from when he was 9. Then they paid read more

Story: 2
Art: 5 (more explanation below, because the first impressions can mislead you)
Character: 3
Overall: 3

The first episode was all right, although the lack of reaction before a certain important thing that happens is unbelievable.
That said, in the second episode this series reveals it´s true colors, and it´s very bad. The animation is very poor, even with very good design, that´s all it is, while the characters are standing still and talking the animation is good, but when something happens, the camera cuts are extremely poorly made and there is no fluidity.

Story its garbage, it doesn´t make any sense and it lacks read more

Edit: So far with only 7 episodes of this anime being released, it okay. I am re-editing my review as I watch more episodes.

Story: The story is an interesting one since it revolves around a present day apocalypse that is overrun by Gibia, or reptile monster like creatures. Somehow these samurai from Sengoku era Japan are popping up in present day Japan. It's not a unique concept, time travel, but it doesn't present it in an interesting way by relating it to the monsters. Do I think this story is a great one? No, I think that it's a pretty generic story using two read more

There is a lot to say about this show, and at first, it seemed alright. While I'm not too bothered by CGI, but sadly, the way this show looks and feels so far. It's not the best at all.

There are characters here, but in some cases, they just feel bland and uninteresting. While I wouldn't say they are complete trash, as some of the plot points of the show are actually quite touching. But at times, it just feels lifeless in parts. The only character I really like so far, is the main mc girl herself, and that's it really.

The art...Well it does look old, read more
