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.

Wew, the crew really gets big huh. Too bad I'm not into mobage so if there's no season 2 this will end for me.

Hmm im glad that Gran and the others managed to rescue Lyria from her prison though. But now they have to stop both the empire and Leviathan from destroying Auguste.

This was an excellent episode and i really enjoyed it.
The fight against Leviathan was pretty well done and seeing them introduce so many new characters and allies for this battle was nice though some were better than others. Im glad that in the end Gran and his crew with the support of his new allies were able to stop leviathan and deal with the true controller though. Im also glad that Lyria has now fully recovered from her ordeal and that a new crew member is joining them as well. If this series didn't have 13 episodes i would have thought that this will be the last one as it had that feel to it.

So this will be the showdown between Lyria and Gran's party and Leviathan eh. Using the iron giant to stop Leviathan from killing Eugen though was a great move though. So because Leviathan was trying to use its power to keep the sea clean of the pollutants that the empire was spreading it used up all its energy eh. Hmm im surprised that Eugen actually understood Lyria's plan and was willing to help as well. He must care for Leviathan's well being as well. Im surprised that Eugen commands so much respect among the men in the city though. Hmm it was nice to see Marie and Karva assist Gran's party in getting to leviathan though. Seeing all kinds of characters assist in the fight was pretty fun as well. Gran must have some sort of aura that draws allies to him even one's that he hasn't seen before. Best example being the silver haired swordswoman. Hmm so this episode sure introduced a lot of new characters though but i suppose the fight in the city will draw them in as they all want to protect its people. Seeing them all help and try and clear the path for Gran's party was nice. I hope these characters will play a role in the final fight though as it seems a waste to just have them in one scene though.

Despite their differences its nice to see Rackam and Io trust each other with their backs though. Seeing each of these new characters have fun while battling the monsters and clearing the path was pretty funny. Well Leviathan is a primal beast after all so i would have expected it to be able to switch tactics. Hmm the revelation that leviathan itself was actually being controlled was surprising to say the least. Lyria and Gran's determination to save Leviathan by talking to it sure is strong though but first they have to get rid of the commander first. Hmm the shield that the new swordswoman erected sure was timed pretty well. Hmm she's a knight captain eh. She certainly looks like a knight. Seems that this battle has also drawn in the attention of the knights as well too eh lol. Then again a monster attack on a nation thats actively fighting against the empire would no doubt draw attention from other powers that are so far unaligned. Still for Gran and Lyria and co to have so many allies help them in their push to leviathan he is really lucky. Or maybe its his determination that draws them to him. Hmm Eugen's sure not lacking guts in using himself as bait to allow him to get a clear shot on the commander itself. Hmm Lyria using her new primal beast to not just hold leviathan in place with its roots while also give a path for Gran's charge was a genius move. Since Gran and Lyria share life forces the damage that he takes is also inflicted on her as well. Still never expected Lyria to be burned by the corrosive slime as well though. So because Eugen's daughter was protected by Leviathan for three days after being swept away he actually had a lot of respect for it eh. Thats why he was so keen on Grans plan that would have saved it and the city as well eh. Hmm for the black knight and Lyria's sister to appear now of all times though. There does seem to be a connection between Lyria and that girl though thats for sure. Still i wonder just what is the black knights faction's plan though. Lol after such a hard fought battle there has to be a large celebration party after all. Its perhaps unsurprising that the person that Lyria wants to meet is that girl thats with the black knight.

Its nice that as a result of her travels with everyone and after Gran's words during her rescue that Lyria is no longer scared of her identity anymore. This is the bond of friendship thats not easily broken. And gran now has a new title in the hero that saved the island. Quite appropriate actually. Hmm so Eugen wants to join Grans team as well eh. I wonder is the person that he wants to deal with the black knight. But its nice that we have a veteran joining the crew though. His experience and his gun arm will be pretty useful. Seeing all the new characters have fun with each other after such a hard battle was nice though. Fate really has connected Gran with a lot of allies though.

That was a pretty good final episode. I say final because the 13th episode basically seems like it'll just be an OVA of sorts but wrapped into the show itself. Even the preview said "extra".

I don't really play the game, have it but only put in like an hour or so, but it was pretty neat to see a big handful of characters from the game make an appearance. I've seen enough fan art to at least recognize them, though the only one I actually know by name is Narumeia (who was by far the best this episode). But the jacked af guy with the fists was badass, the sniper girl, spear girl, cat girl, and cannon girl were all really cool too.

So I'm assuming from those few scenes that The Black Knight is actually Apollo, and that Apollo is Eugen's daughter who was saved by Leviathan. Also going to assume that he knows she's the Black Knight as well. Judging from the first scene when he finds her on the beach and calls her name, then the Lyria clone calls her Apollo, and once Eugen see's her is when he makes the decision to join the crew with the reason of "there's someone I need to deal with, and I see that I cant keep putting it off".

I would definitely like a season 2. This definitely might fall on the more generic side in terms of overall story and content, but the story is still enjoyable and on the more light-hearted side. All of the characters and crew were likeable, and although the art suffered at points, the animation was definitely above average. I would like to see more Rosetta/her join the crew since she has an interesting back story with being on Gran's father's crew as well, and I'd also like to see more of the game characters either make an appearance or join the crew as well.

It depends though, I don't know if this anime was simply to promote the game, or if they had plans to expand the GBF franchise as a whole by adding the anime as another form of media and plan on continuing it, or if they're waiting to see a spike in game downloads/good BD sales/combination of both.

All those cameos *squealing*
Really nice action and pretty good animation, you can tell they allocated a bit more here to make everyone look impressive, I'm certainly tempted to launch the game again.

Djeeta hype hype hype yessssssss. That's all I can say really, I was quite disappointed initially when I realized Djeeta wouldn't be appearing at the beginning of the series, but now I'm happy they decided to give her an ep at least~

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
Yeah I was hoping to see Bea too, I was quite sad when she didn't show.

And yeah Feather and Yuel combo scene was really good, plus that super crisp animation with Feather's attack.

Rushed episode throwing past characters into it's mix as fast as Leviathan was throwing fish at our heroes. No explanation as to how some of them (not the flying droves of fish, lol) actually ended up there.

That said, I would love to see a spin-off, original series with Karva and Marie as main characters. Their designs as steam-punk chick and petite demon are awesome. They steal every scene they are in and the voice acting behind them is solid. It would be interesting to see how they met and teamed up as dungeon travelers . A more mature series...I suppose. I was gonna drop this show (too episodic and not enough focus on narrative) until they showed up, as I was hoping to see them play a bigger role in achieving Gran and L's goals.

Katalina and Rack deserve some more shipping too. They are both shy but strong. Perfect for each other. Oh well
