I enjoy the Danmachi series, but this was the most abysmal cookie-cutter anime movie ever considering the budget that was probably behind it. I never write reviews, but this was so bad, that I couldn't afford not to.
- Conflict that has virtually 0 relation or impact to the main storyline? Check
- One-off anime love heroine that will never be mentioned again? Check
- One-off 'enemy'? Check
- One-off 'power-boost' and OP weapon that will never be used again in the series? Check
- Generic 'everyone fights together but they're virtually useless cause the protagonist carries the final boss' scene? Check
Aside from the animation, this movie is so
shallow it hurts. It was so predictable that trudging through till the end was honestly a chore.
Even the most generic shonen movies ie Naruto and Bleach had more character exploration and development than this. If you want to see a side-plot movie done right, go watch the Illya movie or Index movie.
