Anime Review: Granblue Fantasy

This is an anime based on a video game by the same name. I have not played the game, but I assume the game follows the same general plot line as the TV show. The show revolves around Gran and Vyrn, a human and flying mini-dragon type of animal. The pair find a girl named Lyria who is being chased by the government of this fantasy world. The new friends decide to travel to Estalucia where Gran’s father disappeared years before, both to find him and to find answers to what Lyria is.

This is another show I watched some time ago so I don’t remember the specifics of the plot. But basically they gain new friends as they try to find their way to Estalucia. The government is constantly on their trail and forces them to stay on the run. The answers to many questions lay at the end of their journey, but the question is will they make it.

The final episode, 13, has nothing to do with the plot. It’s basically a swimsuit episode where Gran has become (or rather always was) a girl. It’s clearly an attempt at extremely light fan service but I would still consider it clean as nothing is shown. Just doesn’t fit with the rest of the show.
