THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, that blue dragon really is a monster to be feared.

Gran and his group encounters a mysterious girl with demon horns.
I feel like pacing of this episode really picked up and I gotta admit that some of the abilities the characters used were impressive. Seems that A-1 poured a bunch of their budget into the action scenes.

Seems the Empire just isn't going to leave Lyria alone regardless where she goes...

So this is why we have this island alongside the whole deal with Yggu first. They changed up the order so they could canonically show those characters. Gives me the impression that they might actually join sooner or later as this seem far too much effort and rearrangement for some mere cameos.

So many chars from the game appeared all of a sudden.
Way to many at ones, why didn't they show up sooner?
Anyway an action packed episode with a nice ending tho the question is where will they be heading now?

I assume they didn't want them to run into them one by one ( they wouldn't have time for that anyway ) but meet them in groups that travel on their own. Makes it easier to spend an episode introducing them all at once. Also judging from what we will get next episode there is a chance that

I agree introducing one by one would have taken too long but now it's just way too much at one time.
Small groups over the course of the anime would probably have been better.

That's the thing though. These character can't appear prior to this island in the story which is why they already rearranged it a little. Any more for the sake of an early introduction bit by bit would have messed way too much with the initial order and direction of the main story. The way I see it they'll tie them together with

Quite the showcase episode, so many new characters and I really liked most of them from what little we did see. Unfortunately I don't play the game but for people who do, this episode must've been quite the spectacle.

Great action overall and we got a new crew member. :)

The beginning was action-packed. It was really cool. So many characters appeared all of a sudden. They were helpful with their nice abilities. The crew has a new member now.

In terms of action I have no complaints. But what was with all those characters popping up all of sudden, it made things feel rushed.

Yea, it really felt like it was the grand final of the season packing all the characters to satisfy all the viewers who played the game. And... The preview for next episode says "Extra 1", not "Episode 13" so it might be just some side story, I don't know, we will see next week.

Not really rush actually, they are simply just cameos. If you think about it in a game point of view, a city like that sure will have other heroes other than the main characters. If you know what I mean:)

Well, the battle was very well made, and the characters introduced were cool. I guess they are easter eggs for the ones who have played the game. In my case, since I haven't do it, it wasn't that meaningful, but since the actions scenes were badass, I don't mind them.

Dat HanaKana too.

Anyway we should just chill, they are just cameos. Why would a city not have other heroes for recruitment?:)

But why is there no mage character cameo?

Anyway the dark knight name is Apollo, the same as Eugene's daugther name?

The animation in this episode was pretty awesome, first half really. I assumed that all these new characters were cameos from the game, pretty cool.

I kinda want to play the game now :X

Despite playing the game it felt kinda awkward seeing all these new characters pop out of nowhere. The action was pretty great nonetheless.
It was a pretty fun series, liking the game even more now, goddammit Cy.

Actually a bit speechless after watching this episode. Feels like an advertisement for the game with all of those characters (not just 1 or 2, but 9!) appearing in the episode, not that I mind tho XD

The action was quite good, enjoyed all of the cameos.

The next episode would be an extra, and the last one for this season, eh? Season 2 might be coming sooner than I thought.

Superb episode. I skipped my Assault Time to watch this, and I was not disappointed with what I saw.

Yamaji did well in covering for Fujiwara in voicing Eugen.




This is the first episode that feels like an HL raid with no carries, while having 2-3 leechers (represented by Yuel, Zeta, Mary, Karva). The fight was epic as it is, and the cameos were the best of this season.

















Overall, Soiya!/10

PS: I want to see Jin, Riruru, Kumuyu, Sara, Lily, Lecia, Vira, Eustace, Beatrix, Jamil, Mimlemel, Rosamia, Yngwie (voiced by Keiji Fujiwara for the lols), Lunalu, the Dragon Knights, Anchira, Makira, Cagliostro, Arulumaya, Juutenshu (esp. Thalatha, Funf, Nio) and Dank Sarunan (HAHAHAHAHAHA) next season. Yes, I was looking at my character list while making this entry.

Probably an OVA. But honestly, only 4/6 bosses are encountered over 12 eps, so hopefully, the two tackle the last two.

EDIT: Since it seems like Hisako Kanemoto was the VA speaking, it's probably not about the main story. (Probably a Djeeta appearance, I guess?)

Very good episode.


I thought it was really cool seeing various people help out eliminate the monsters and also seeing different types of magics, weapons and attacks used.

Eugen's daughter is Apollo the Black Knight then?

I wonder how she ended up like that.

We will probably get to know more about her in the future episodes seeing as how Eugen has joined the crew and the adventures.

I also want to know more about the girl the is like Lyria.

I don't think the Black Knight is evil. In an earlier episode, her subordinates were trying to rescue Lyria and Gran from an island they thought was about to blow up. That said, they don't go about their business in the friendliest ways. I suspect the Black Knight is in a faction of the empire that opposes their hostility to other islands.

Some have speculated here that the Black Knight is Eugen's daughter Apollo. She may have just wanted some of Leviathan's essence as a remembrance of it protecting her. I don't know if Apollo is his daughter, but if so, it likely places her solidly in the "good guy" category. Referring to the Lyria look alike as "Doll" doesn't seem to show a lot of respect, though, which sort of counters the "completely good guy" possibility.

Ehhh why were 9 characters all introduced in one episode???

It's interesting that Apollo is the dark knight, and also Eugen's daughter. Well of course, there's the possibility that they just share the same name... I'm guessing Eugen's joining them to find Apollo, though it's unknown whether he knows she's the dark knight.

Yeah, I agree with you.

And I thought there would be 14 episodes? Why is it now 13?

The other Lyria is intriguing, wonder what's her story.

Just when I was about to fall asleep listening to the pointless dialogue all these really cool side characters come into the picture! WTF! Why throw in all these really cool characters in such a rushed was at the end of the anime?!! BTW any of all of the side characters would be an improvement over the main cast so at least we have that and the action was nice even though some of the animation was lackluster. It's like A-1 studios gave up half way through this season and gave the show to the interns. At least my they finished the episode with a nice clean ending and seeing as how the preview for next week said extra 1 I'm assuming that was the end of the anime. We don't really need extra episodes it had a nice ending to a mediocre anime just let it die and rest in pieces
I shall rule over the realms of anime and manga! Mwahhahahahaha!!!

I don't play Granblue but I'm so happy many granblue characters appeared. I had a lot of fun guessing the voices :D

I heard, Soma Saito (the lightning guy), Rikiya Koyama (the manly fist guy), Kana Ueda (the dual blade fire girl) AND KANA HANAZAWA (THE SPEAR GIRL) WAAAAAH <3 <3

Having fan favorite characters appear was a good idea, plus it's pretty cool to see them. So many things I want to answer from people's questions here, but I don't want to spoil anything in case they make a second season.

I literally screamed when I saw Silva sniping from above. The rest of the game characters are presented well too, although Feather (the lightning fist guy) could have been presented a bit more stylish. Having a lot of them coming in one single episode though, made me both confused n excited at the same time but hey good stuff.

oh and I can finally post this joke here

Who was expecting such a new appearance of characters, there is also the rori, with blond hair. Those are never missing, eheheheh!
Really nice backgrounds and character design of the characters, sorry that the quality of the drawings is not always up to the top.

thanks I tried to search for her but didn't find anything!!!

and while I looked back it seems like ricardo241 had figured it out already (When I searched for Kana Hanazawa I thought you meant Roromiya, Karuta from Inu x Boku)

Cameo characters look interesting. Do they join the main crew or only appear on some quest later in the original game?

Extra 1? Seems the main plot of the anime stops here?

All of the cameo characters join your crew once you get the weapon that unlocks them. The Extra episode thing is probably about Djeeta, the female protagonist in the game.

HNNNG all the Cameos made me very happy but sad at the same time because with all these top tier characters showing up the quality took quite a dip hopefully it looks better in the BDs,though i found it funny that you have bunch of SSRs and what not but leave it to Gran to finish it off while still only being his base job :P

Real talk though how you gonna show Zeta but not Beatrix at the same time! REEE.

favorite episode yet the scene with yuel and Feather was hype
