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).

I have seen a lot of negative comments against this anime, so I will rebalance for those who want to see what positive comments give.

The general criticism is made against fluidity and «bad graphics» except that most spectators know nothing about it and invent a life.

Moreover, those who say that it is the «worst animated of the world» have really looked nothing, I can advise you of much worse.

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 ...

Ah, Gibiate, the show where time-travelling samurai fight bad CGI to save what's left of human world. Then, everyone dies left and right and you leave more empty inside than the animators that phoned in those computer-generated abominations.

I mean, this is kind of a b-movie plot and the series starts with some of that low-budget charm. I also watched it after Ex-arm, so it's hard for shoddy CGI to shock me at this point. However, Gibiate has a unique feature that makes it miserable to watch: the more important the monster, the plotpoint, the scene, the worse it is.

While normal Gibia monsters look ...
