Is it just me, or was this show maximum comfy?
here's the rest that i have
didnt make one for the OVA proper
>tfw season 2 never ;_;
This was my favorite when it aired.
Is the LN being translated?
surprisingly fast, actually. even compared to fanlations. it was licensed, but not by a big name like yen press that does its releases twice a year (looking at you, SAO)
J-Novel Club got it and announced the license at the end of october
V1 is complete and was released on the 16th, available in both print and ebook, surprisingly
they release them on a per-chapter basis on their website, every week. V2 is already well over half done last i checked
I think the art and soundtrack were pretty good, but the character development and story were a bit lack luster.
Also, it's probably never going to get brought up but I wish they talked about how/why they're in this random place that obviously isn't where they were originally living.
Stuff youre asking would be in the LN naturally, this is an LN advertising or probably some will say a band ad first than a proper telling of the story and it is incomplete itself so far.
grimgar has that wonderful quality of looking great regardless of where you take a screenshot
only a few media, anime or otherwise, share that ability. i'm talking western works like Tron Uprising and games like Journey, Abzu, and Shadow of the Colossus
things like Madoka, Flip Flappers and Kiznaiver fit the bill too, but then it's more just a matter of taste
Was maximum slow.
You know, there is no problem with slow pacing, but when you skip dialogues with character and world building from the novels and replace them with backgrounds for minutes then there is a problem.
It was one of the best isekai, with best ass.
Maximum comfy alert.
It started out that way then when that faggot died I wanted the show to end ASAP because that's all they fucking talked/cried/moaned about.
The start was REALLY fucking good though, A group struggling to take down some basic goblins was fucking great to watch but the author fucked up in killing the healer so early on.
The problem was more that the dialogue was cut to make room for more music.
It's a problem with modern late-night anime series being co-productions between several companies forming up into committees.
>Yume's armpits and ass
Yeah, it was good.
More like yumASS.
Gotta add some tension, and what better way to do that and make everyone else step up than to kill off the one decently skilled guy? Granted, most shows wait until later on to do that, but that's whatever.
Now when i've watched the whole thing i feel that it was pretty enjoyable. I feel that because it was going so slow when it was airing I didn't really enjoy it. I should've waited when all the episodes had aired. I feel that watching the episodes weekly didin't do the show justice. It was pretty enjoyable afterall
Haruhiro smells like _____
Unfortunately the LN is bad. Surprisingly bad, it's fanfic tier. The anime team did an amazing job. The best moments of the anime are not even there in the LN, or they happen in a way that makes them much worse. Image related.
I wanted to fuck everyone in this show.
I love Madoka but you couldn't be more wrong
Yume is the cutest
She has a very huggable butt
Eh, it was decently popular on /a/ during its airing.
Of course, most of it was from fa/tg/uys coming to discuss on /a/ while also talking about longspear weapons and D&D and stuff.
Personally, I think the show had a good balance of action, some drama, fan service for both men and women, character interaction and stuff.
The music felt bad, but then again, that's been said already.
Yume had the best butt, Shihoru had the best tits and Mary had the best hips.
The LN is better in several cases, though. The anime took a steaming shit on Ranta, and it gloriously fucked up the Death Spots fight to the point where it just looked stupid. The LN's got tremendous pacing issues, but the anime adaptation cut so many corners it's arguably just as bad from a different context.
I actually adored Grimgar, I'll make sure to remind myself to begrudgingly read the English translation in 2025
Priest was best, I hope the MC stops being a fucking faggot at some point and ends up with her, but we all know it'll never happen.
>/tg/fags got to discuss Grimgar and Konosuba in the same season
Say what you want about the shitposting, but Winter was fun as hell if you knew where to lurk
She's a treacherous cunt, Haruhiro deserves better than that shitty excuse for a "human", if she even is one.
Action and choreography was great. Felt like I was watching a bunch of idiots who had never even gotten into a playground fight suddenly be dropped into a fight-or-die conflict. They got better, they got cocky, they paid for it, got their shit together and got better. Unfortunately, the ending fight was completely stupid and a partial? deus ex machina. Yes, we were lead to believe that crits are good, but that was beyond retarded.
Visuals were great and that's coming from someone who almost never gives a shit about anything related to visuals/graphics.
Characters could've been handled better. I liked how it wasn't power of friendship/let's all get along as if nobody had flaws. They were in a shitty situation, personalities flared and clashed. But it still felt lacking.
Story and story telling were awful. Pacing was abysmal, which of course exacerbated the story issues. It's not "nothing happens" like in K-On, but holy shit it was bad.
No, but Mary's going to wish he had.
> Unfortunately the LN is bad.
Nope. Some anime-original content was god (95% of it is with Mary), but other changes were bad.
I read 3 volumes and really liked, especially 1st and 3rd.
Manato best guy, Mary best girl.
Same for me with Ranta's death.
The characters were all complete shit and literally nothing happened at all, so I wound up dropping it about 5 or 6 episodes in. Did it continue to suck til the end, or did something decent actually happen?
I liked the slow pacing. Made things feel very comfy and real. The only con is that it was only 12 episodes, so with that pacing it felt like we saw jack shit. Would love a 52 episode anime with that speed.
this show was irritating, fucking noobs never acted like they wanted to stop being noobs. they should be glad for their bacon that wherever the fuck they are is not dark souls
That goblin fight where the priest dude died was really above average. I wish more action would take its example in terms of strategy, pacing n whatnot.
The music and artstyle were definitely comfy.
Damn, I know I'm a bit behind, but when did Ranta die? I just finished the badass fight in the castle, with the shaman and the elite fighter and the last Thank You! and Ranta came back swearing he was gonna open that ramen shop... ;____;
Loved it. Characters felt real and the slow pacing allowed us to get into it even more. The only Isekai I've ever liked.
The only thing I don't like is that it was a one cour LN advert and the jrock fight scenes, but that's just a matter of personal preference. Other anon say they like that part.
Yume is my yume no yome.
I hate that, the anime was so good for me, then I tried the VN and holy shit it was bad, it was like reading a fan fic on an obscure forum. Not the first time an anime does this for me.
The visuals were so good (imo it was worth JUST for the visuals) and the rest was decent (not perfect but it was maximum comfy).
I just want the continuation animated, I don't give a shit of the source material.
Seriously, some stories can only shine through certain mediums only.
>Taking one hand at a time when removing her clothes.
That says a lot about her character.
Too bad they ruined it with shit writing, pacing and overall direction. I couldn't give a damn about the struggles of any character, they were all flawed characters for the purpose of creating a story, rather than flawed characters caught within their story.
Spectacular on the art side though.
That's funny, I thought so, too.
The pace has a lot to do with it; sure, it was probably done that way to save on the non-existent animation budget (other than the first scene and a few short pieces here and there, it's not very impressive), but it gives the show a slow, moody feel that makes it easier to understand the grinding poverty and stress that the characters face.
The entire second half (and much of the first, aside from SPOILER) felt like a "healing" anime.
That said, the Dork Knight almost turned me off of it at times with his terrible attitude and sheer stupidity. Seriously, he felt like a caricature, and at points I wished that he would just die.
Overall, though... probably my favorite series I've seen this year; admittedly, I haven't watched that much lately, though.
Why couldn't the animation be this good the whole way through?
At times, it was almost Disney-quality in terms of moving camera angles and fluid animation (or at least '90s X-Men).
So how many levels did they wind up getting? For a ragtag bunch, killing goblins all day, it doesn't feel like they should have gone up more than ten levels. Maybe not even half a dozen.
Huh. So pretty much "grind for lucre to get better"? It certainly felt like their #1 concern was getting money for everything, but that "1/day find the weak spot" skill feels like the kind of thing most games would at least restrict by level (or maybe it just checks against experience, like if you have 9.99E+100xp, you get a 5% chance per hour or whatever), for balance issues. The death bit though, makes it feel like they're playing in some hardcore server where you're one and done.
Some of it may originate from your usual mmo shit/rpg like the "class" but you need to discard the level/exp (as in the usual numbers you gained and see in games after defeating a monster)/stat point allocation/balance issue(what the fuck, did you even watch this?) thinking. From what I read, its mostly about real combat experience,skills learned from their class masters,equipment and having a good party.
Ranty was always going on about his "next skill", and kill-stealing so I'm assuming there was at least some element of "you need to kill x things" or "use Harvest Trophy 10 times" as achievements. So I guess using achievements in lieu of the "standard" system.
That one feels like the kind of tune you play at a campfire before everyone goes to sleep.
Anybody gotten the official LN translation? How does it compare to the fan TL?
>available in both print and ebook, surprisingly
I thought J-Novel Club was ebook only? Which is why they are able to release so fast compared to Yen Press, because they can skip all the overhead that physical releases entail like typesetting and printing and distribution.
The way the group reacted when that one guy died seemed a bit too melodramatic and didn't deserve the reaction they portrayed. They've only known each other for what like a few days? and they are already going through a deep depression over this one dude? Give me a break. Aside from that the animation and setting was comfy, the characters are pretty and the fight scenes were cool to watch. Also fan service delivered well.
>They've only known each other for what like a few days? and they are already going through a deep depression over this one dude?
The death of one is a reminder of the mortality of all.
They cut or modified out a bit from the LN where its pretty much manato that saved their asses since all of them are either rejects during party member selection or got abandoned by their party.
Right, but couldn't they have at least anticipated something like this happening in the future? You don't need someone close to you to remind you of your own mortality. I understand it's a difficult experience to go through when a friend of yours dies, even if you may have known him for a little while, but if I were in there position I would have been more afraid and concerned about my own well being than being depressed about this one guy.
Can LN readers explain this? And how come it's a female lead? I thought Haruhiro is the MC.
I think chicks were held hostage by stronger adventurers group and they thought about raping them but in the end they didn't.
Maybe after generic oniisan priest bites the dust - a chick takes the role of their leader?
IDK never watched this shit past first instance of forced drama.
It would've been better if they did shit instead of these idle static landscapes that supposed to fill me with feels
but only filled me with annoyance.
Even if they cut it out, you can still see clearly that Manato was the only guy in their party who knew his shit. He was budgeting, going to the tavern to listen for rumors, and leading the team's tactics. They already knew it, but his death led them to realize more about how they've depended on him.
Also yeah the rejects part. Given how crappy they were, there was a very real chance they had to start adventuring without a priest.
Maybe in LN it's different but when a character dies that was not even developed properly - it looks dumb to me.
You either spend time developing it so I can sympathize with his death or go full GoT and kill characters indiscriminately.
Otherwise I just sit there and think that this was one shitty attempt to deepen the shallow show and it failed miserably.
So when a character dies after lots of build up, that's okay, but having a character die and the other characters not realizing how much he was doing for them until afterwards and agonize over it is more shallow? As far as I saw it, Manato had just as much development after he died as before.
>character dies after lots of build up, that's okay,
>having a character die and the other characters not realizing how much he was doing for them
That's so forced that it's painful to watch.
Big Blue's implied backstory was heartbreaking.
>grimgar has that wonderful quality of looking great regardless of where you take a screenshot
The way you're using it, 'forced' is a junk term with no meaning. If you don't think it just means 'in my opinion' and want to keep using it then explicitly define it without just relying on subjective examples.
The other members of the party were busy dealing with their own problems and didn't realize how much background work Manato was doing for their party until that background work wasn't being done. Manato could have kept them more in the loop, but it hadn't really been all that long of a time and there are sundry reasons for him to try and keep the status quo in regards to the party's workload.
I fail to see how the party's realization of this and coming to grips with the reality of their situation after his death is somehow less worthy of a dramatic point than if Manato had gone over everything he was doing as the party leader and then have him die. They even made a point of who Manato actually was versus who Manato was to individual members of the party. It's not like having him die is some sudden breaking point where, if the full and complete experience of his character death wasn't apparent and occurring right at that moment it was a wasted character event.
>in my opinion
Well I'm fucking sorry you fail to understand that in a discussion about fiction everything is personal opinion.
Sorry for you that is.
>but it hadn't really been all that long of a time
This is what I am complaining about.
They barely even know the guy but they go full Shinji after he dies.
I mean yeah, he carried, but where the fuck that sudden surge of familiarity came from?
This all looks stretched and superstitious.
I didn't get what were you saying in the last two sentences, it's too much comas for ESL like me.
Which class would you choose?
I actually missed a comma in that last sentence on top of it being more of a 'type it how I'd say it' sentence.
The 'forced' thing was more my reaction to the exchange of
>x is forced
>so you mean you didn't like it
>Yes I didn't like it because he wasn't developed
>but he was developed, just a lot was after he died
>but that's forced
You see where the logic loop is. They knew him for a bit, I think like a couple weeks, which for us may not have seemed too long, but these kids were desperate for a figure of authority to look up to (being lost and rejected). Manato fit that bill. That reliance on top of the general camaraderie of fighting together is what made them rate him so highly in their minds.
When Manato died it wasn't 'this person I knew died'. The leader of the party, the guy who the party relied on to generally have his shit together, the person everyone looked up to, is suddenly gone and it may or may not have been their fault. It wasn't just that Manato's character was gone--it's even covered that they really knew fuck all about him--but his role was central to the groups functioning as an adventuring party without them realizing it. Despite who he was personally, who he was as a figure within the party dynamic had far more significance. That's why so much time was spent 'on Manato' after he died; he was carrying the weight of the entire party on his back.
They should have dropped this fuck face day 1
I like you. Usually when I see other /a/nons use useless buzzwords like "forced" I lose all motivation to continue engaging with them because then it turns into a struggle to actually get them to articulate their own opinions in any meaningful manner beyond "I didn't like x because aspect y was done badly."
I loved it. Apparently mangafags didn't like it because of the slow pace. But that was the reason I loved it.
That one episode where they took the day off and that song played in the background while it showed each of them chilling out in their own way was one of my favourite episodes of anime in this year.
Also a really good-looking show minus the occasional hilariously bad QUALITY moments like hover-Yume.
A profession that focuses on tracking, survival, and bow skills that allow a party to put pressure on enemies without the use of the Mage and their fairly long cast times.
Enjoyed it at the end of the day, even if it was slow it was still a refreshing change from the more common "oh my god I'm so overpowered the cheats" isekai stories.
I ended up buying the first volume in English because I think anybody that can deliver faster than Yen Press or even the fan translators deserves to have money thrown at that effort.
Thief or hunter.
Whichever give more of that ass.
>She was more sadistic than a sadist
In a non-meme sense, what did they actually mean by this? I remember that line sticking out to me as really weird and I never quite grasped what they meant.
Let me ask you something, if you got trapped in the woods for a week or two with a group of 4-5 people and the leader of this group knew everything about surviving and knew exactly what to do when living in the woods. Then, after those two weeks past a bear mauls the leader and kills him leaving the rest of the group who are inexperienced in camping are left to survive on there own. Tell me, would you spend the remainder of those days crying about the one person who took care of you all or would you be scared shitless knowing that you are trapped in the woods with little to no knowledge on how to survive.
They weren't literally in the woods, they were at least in a populated area. The relative lack of immediate threat to life offered by the town allows them time to be sad their bubble of security is gone instead of just being scared 24/7.
Then why would they be venturing out in the wilderness in the first place if they knew that there were creatures that could kill them? Couldn't they just stay in the city and make a living off a job or something?
Well he should have died three episodes later.
>after she gets wasted
She had it coming.
Her job description is healing, blue balls is a disease.
They couldn't. It's been said right from the start that they shouldn't even try to work on anything that isn't adventuring.
The consequences haven't been made clear but recruiter guy didn't look like he was playing around.
There are several ways to take off a shirt.
But with woman's form fitting clothes, it's a little bit tricky.
That's why, to take off a woman shirt you'd have to turn it inside out when taking it off, or use "mary's method".
Which is very quick way to take off clothes, save time when you wear the clothes back, however it require a lot of practice.
Women how use this method are usually in jobs that require them to change their clothes quickly, combine that with her male aversion attitude and willingness to change group for a proper sum of money and ridged almost incorporation-style when fighting.
Mary was probably a prostitute before she was isekai'd.
>shitty fanart is reality
Keep dreaming, faggot. Ranta and Haru will outlive everyone else in their mad dance of fated nemeses.
Btw, vol.3 can trigger you with friendzone theme. Beware.
> I’ve loved you and only you for a long, long time. Not that he could tell her. Not that he would ever be able to tell her…
it's not they couldn't work a normal job, but that they need money to join another non-fighting guild for training to become an apprentice.
Without that money since they wouldn't join the volunteers they couldn't do anything else besides try to steal it maybe. As well as natives don't think very highly of the "off-worlders" to begin with.
The only person among them that might have had a chance is Moguzo if he got lucky and could demonstrate to someone willing to sponsor him that he could well.
Cause it did the trasported to another world trope right.
Instead of everyone getting everything for free through game systems and cheats they actually had to train in it and sucked for most of the storry.
Yes, his childhood friend Choco. She is like female-Haruhiro, but also
natural-born slut desu.
This show looks like a compilation of cuckery and forced drama.
