Grimgar and fantasy of ash

Hai To Gensou No Grimgar or Grimgar of fantasy and ash will be another worthy to watch Anime of 2016. Because there is a certain thing that makes plot of this Anime more interesting. Even though the plot is nothing but a Typical Anime Cliche that is been popular since 2012.


Why are we here? Why are we doing this?

Before Haruhiro had realized what happened, he was surrounded by darkness. Why was he here? Where was here? Even now, he still didn’t know. Those around him were the same as him, no one remembered anything other than their own names. And when they emerged from the darkness, the world that awaited them seemed like something out of a video game.

In order to survive, Haruhiro forms a party with the others, learns fighting skills, and as a soldier in the reserve force, takes his first steps into the world of Grimgar. What awaits him there, he doesn’t know…

This the story of an adventure born from the ashes.

Grimgar of fantasy and ash Anime review

Well at the start of this post i mentioned that this Anime has certain thing that makes the very plot an Interesting thing to watch. What is that thing?

The episode start of with Main character and his friends fighting with a group of

goblins which are probably the weakest creatures in the world. Its sad to see that the main characters and his friend could not even beat those (Probably because their level is ‘Apprentice’). After that Main character start describing what happened and how did he ended up in the fantasy world.

According to what he describes that he and other people somehow ended up in a fantasy game world and they don’t remember anything about themselves expect from their own name. So in order to survive he forms party with few people and learns fighting skills. In fact because of this particular reason the Anime becomes an interesting thing to watch.

So after knowing this the one thing that come into your mind is that its another ‘Sword Art Online’ with characters having ‘Amnesia.’ After Sword Art Online many Anime related to ‘Virtual Reality’ genre were made among them the most notable ones are ‘Log Horizon’ and ‘Overlord.’


The Animation looks like it came straight out of painting and is bit similar to the animation of the Anime called ‘Akagame no shirayuki hime.’ A very different feeling which is of course hard to¬†describe in words.


The Anime had very slow start so can’t tell that when any major events will take place. For now the Anime looks like a normal ‘Fantasy Anime’ with Main character and his friends trying hard to survive in the world of Grimgar. But history is a proof that Anime with slow starts have drastic changes in their story line with a pretty dark or big major events taking place.


Grimgar of fantasy and ash Anime look promising, and certainly gives hopes that it will turn badass in later episodes. Still can’t say much more than this. #FingersCrossed
