THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well this episode was more a fan service episode and with a story about "what if" Even if it was funny, I was waiting to give us more information about the story.

Well, if we want to continue the story we will need to start playing the game. The story an animation was oki but I really wanted to see more

Wow, they saved the beach episode at this late. I suppose the show really wanted to take some time to relax at long last. Obviously, this episode had the most fan service compared to the others. Personally, I think it's a weird place to place this episode considering the season is ending.

Katalina seems to feel somewhat shy about her swimsuit.

This episode felt more like an OVA tbh even with some bits of action...

Don't be surprised if there's a sequel to this. BD sales were very very good. Plus Cygames has tons of cash

Gran turned into a girl, and a cute one at that.
Or better said we rolled female during this episode and she seems a bit more capable to Gran when it comes the gathering crewmen.
This episode just made me wonder why we could not enjoy Djeeta for the entire anime, Gran wasn't bad but i definitely prefer Djeeta.
It was also nice too see many of the other characters during this episode we missed them during the most of the anime after all.

Also Katalina was hot during this episode it was really nice to see her like that.

Wow, Djeeta got way luckier with her rolls, huh? Unless Gran's saving up to do them all in one go.

Oh man, this episode was all kinds of great though. Djeeta's a plain badass, we got swimsuit fanservice, there was also lotsa cute moments like the scene with Lyria eating which btw was god damn adorable.

And... Gran got cucked in the ED LOL

With how well it sold and with it just being Cygames, I'm hoping for another season in the near future.

Swim Suit Fest as our finale, I approve. XD

I honestly love how they decided to use Djeeta instead of Gran since it was going to be a fan service episode, well played! XD
I actually really liked Djeeta from just this one episode, she seems real sweet. :P

Lot of characters that cameo'd in previous episode are in the crew this episode, truly a fan service episode in every regard. Well who can say no to more swimsuits? :3

Overall, a pretty fun show. I thought we had 14 episodes but looks like I was mistaken. I haven't played the game so I guess a lot of the fan service and new character cameo's sorta passed over my ahead but despite everything the show was quite entertaining. I really love all the diverse locations that the crew traveled too, we really didn't go too in depth into the story but that's understandable considering they probably can't put in a full fledged game plot into a 1 cour show. Characters were pretty charming, too bad we didn't get introduced to all the characters, a lot of them caught my eye but apart from our main group most of them only got a little cameo. I don't know if I'll ever play the game but I sure will watch an S2 if there is one.

7/10

This episode made me very confused. I had no idea what's going on. The crew got bigger. Gran got replaced by a girl. There was stupid fan service. This was a dumb way to end a show.

Djeeta is very well, in anime version, a difference of Great. For me

But they might have changed the opening a bit, to put the female avatar, rather than the male avatar. For this semi special episode.

Djeeta takes over Gran's role and gets way more crew :O
It was nice seeing them on vacation and some ice quest but I grew to like Gran, I hope they don't replace him for season 2 :'(

Is listed as 13 eps so this ep is part of the anime... If this ep was an OVA or a spin-off i wouldn't complain, but since the first 12 eps had Gran as MC, replacing him in the last ep is so bad

I am not familiar with this game and I can only assume that apparently you can choose a female or male main character or whatever. But this would have been better of as an special or OVA and felt totally out of place :(

I was hooked onto the pre-aired first two episodes but each episode there was a drop "for the worst" (beside the fuwa-fuwa moments between Lyria and Gran and this epic "we save Lyria from her inner doubts-moments"). I was waiting for a bit of a wrap up in ep 13 (if there was a preview I haven't viewed it sorry) but this episode leaves me with a very bitter and unsatisfied taste and the urge to even give a lower rater I have already given...Sigh.

But at least, after constant "do I continue to watch" after ep. 5 or so, it finally has an end. I feel so sorry for this anime since I love the animation style and I apparently cannot appreciate it like I am supposed to. I hate potential that has been destroyed by bad direction.

So...if there's ever a 2nd season happing it will be happening without me ^^''

He he he... sooo for the last episode they gave protagonist boobs so we may have fanservice-beach themed episode. For the same reason they added a bunch of female characters to the crew. Combine with the fact that in the last episode they showed a bunch of characters that are ( I guess) popular in the game just to sent a message ''Our game is awesome".

For these alone the overall score of animation went down from 5 to 3. Good job!

Yea I knew that this ''anime" was just a longer advertisement, but this is simply too much.-_-

yes, ANN didn't mention that the tv series have 14 eps. they said the Blu-ray/DVDs listed a total of 14 episodes.
so both of them aren't wrong.

So damn nice to see another heroine of the game Djeeta, and her "pulls" are much better than Gran lol. Those who play the game been mad about no Djeeta, now their dream comes true:)

This no doubt one of the best episode ever.

So am I to understand that Gran is male MC and Djeeta is female MC? Makes sense now. I mean, this so came out of nowhere that I had several possible explanations the whole episode until I remembered that the source was a game...

I think unlike Eromanga Sensei where I felt like fun while the ending felt like an OVA, this however feels more of an OVA because aside from going from scratch and re-telling the story with much faster pacing and having fanservice. It just feels off for me though... Not bad but, it's just off for me. I prefer to just put that as something different or as its separated thing.

Other than that, overall this series was pretty good with the exception of Episode 13. I'll still keep the 8/10 because I still really like it though. I still did. But in the end by comparison to the stuff I watched today and finished... this is rather lacking.

It's canonical within the game that it's a multiverse. There are many different alternate timelines and when you are fighting a raid you are likely fighting against a boss summoned from an alternate universe in which it was not defeated/captured by the main party.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Can someone explain what happened to gran, I'm a little confused because now some girl named djeeta is taking his place and it made me extremely confused because she hasn't been mentioned at all in the anime until ep 13 so it's like she randomly took grans place and they characters don't know who gran is anymore.

Sooo... we are all ok to say this ep is completly useless?

Well... reused frames, no plot avancement, and just... why is there fanservice? there wasn't any in the whole serie and just... I don't know what to say about that except it disapointing and it shouldn't be

It"s too bad cause the rest of the serie was just fantastic

This honestly feels like a massive slap in the face.

We could have had super yuri route but nooooooooooo, "we gotta use self insert male because of marketing, even when 80% of players use Djeeta".

I'm going to hope that S2 fixes this........

This episode was a odd one but at the same time also a fun one. Replacing the main character with an entirely new character and then telling the tale of this series with her as the mc felt a bit odd but at the same time this episode also gave the many support characters that appeared in the last episode more screen time and roles which i felt was good. Plus i thought ending the series at a beach vacation was nice move. It was funny seeing the empire being shown as ice thieves here lol. Though the theme for this episode was relaxation it was nice that there was a fight against the empire though but lol to think that the empire were stealing ice here though. But anyway at least the cast had one last bash against the empire though as the series ended though. The scene where Katalina had to cover Lyria's eyes as her allies charged into the empire's forces was hillarious. It was nice that we get to see all the female characters that came last episode get featured here though. It would have been a waste if they were just in one episode though. Nice end to the series though.

Its like in this version of events Djeeta completely replaced Gran as the main character though. Hmm so i guess in this timeline all the heroes that fought in that last battle eventually joined their crew eh. Well at least Rosetta joined the crew in this timeline. Lol Dejeeta behaves and acts like a female version of Gran. Well this episode at least provided a great opportunity to see not just the main cast girls be in swimsuits but also the many female warriors that showed up last episode in one as well. Still it was cute seeing the other girls push Djeeta to wear a swimsuit though. Lol the girls expressions as they saw Djeeta try on different ones though. Lol it was watching Yggdrasil make a giant sand statue of Vyrn though. Though she can't talk it was funny seeing her wave so excitedly though. Its nice that even she's enjoying her vacation here. Lol Katalina really isn't used to wearing a swimsuit eh. Lol i guess thats one way of using the colossus but thats the last thing i expected him to be used for though.

Finally, Djeeta!

Two minutes in and I already think Djeeta >>>>>> Gran, really should have made her as the MC, but oh well.

I want whatever Djeeta used to improve the luck when drawing the characters. All those SSR and summer versions...

Tbh, this episode is more of fanservice to the ones who play the game. The ones who don't will understandably get confused. Just take this episode as the one in another universe/timeline.

But seriously though... the difference in strength between Djeeta and Gran... XD

A lot of people fail to understand that this is an extra episode not related to the main story. The main point was to show "what if we used Djeeta as MC instead of Gran".

Most of the game players didn't like the decisiion of Gran being MC instead of DJeeta, also the studio wanted to have both as MCs but Cygames (the game company) refused.

In my opinion, Gran has made this show pretty generic and having DJeeta or DJeeta+Gran would have made the show better. This episode is great for the game fans, also summer gacha is coming soon so ofc they wanted a fanservice ep showcasing the upcoming swimsuit characters (probably next week?).

The only good episode in the whole show because vanillaboy is gone and the one who should have been MC is there.

Frankly this felt more like a punch in the gut relegating the femprotag to basically what amounts to a comedy omake. Oh Japan and your hatred of female characters....Next up on the ride of sexism - Extella/Zero anime original show masquareding as Fate Extra adaptation in the fall with nasu's hateboner against female protagonists.


5/10 for the show overall. Great arstyle, some nice action, yet completely braindead handling of everything else. Of course the source material is nothing to write home about but Bahamut has proven already that you can elevate the source material in anime adaptation to something grand. Bahamut this is not.

This could have been great fantasy work(and we are lacking in actual genuine pure fantasy shows nowadays) with few adjustments and female mc. Alas we got what we got. Quite dull albeit pretty advert for a game.

Hammm? Fan Service? O.o

And... who the fuck is she?

I'm lost... -.-


Besides that, it was an Ok episode I guess!? The Empire now is much more stupid or something like that?
Anyways...
This episode had at least 2 very funny moments:
1.

I don't think Lyria got the joke :DDDD

2.

Katalina... Hoooh Katalina... *She's so hot!* [Marry me... <3]

I like the new opening animations.

Wasn't expecting Djeeta to appear in this.

Haha that was funny when Katalina looked like she was about ot pose for those 3 guys then all of a sudden brings out a sword and looks menacing.

Pretty good episode to finish off.

Hope to get another season.

Wondering if the appearance of Djeeta means that there could be a spin-off?

You DO know that majority of players use and prefer Djeeta over Gran right? One of most common questions people have is "how and when can I finally change out my protagonist for a superior one?"

If anything this episode had elements that could have made this show more popular had the writers not gone with "safe" choice of protagonist.

Another protagonist, Djeeta. Pretty much a different choice than Gran and the character that most of players expected to have been in this show instead of Gran, considering she is way more popular than he is.

No bad swimsuits! I liked their design. Of this anime series, but I really liked the costume design, design color and opening, too. History is not bad, but the narrative was to be much more exciting and thrilling. I'm very impressed by the character of Djeeta.
I did not realize that Sierokarte was a girl. XD

This is the 13th episode, but an "Extra" episode.

The game allows you to pick either Gran or Djeeta, the latter being the female protagonist of the story.

This "extra" episode is set as if Djeeta was the MC.

just that.

Gran is the "free" player who invest minimal time and basically no money, while Djeeta is the "kakin" player who spent countless hours and cash into the game.

Yeah...
