I had a very bad flashback to Crocodile Dundee while watching this (“That’s not a knife”). Only in this case it was more, “That’s not a fireball” right before the impossibly large dragon that looked like it escaped from a Final Fantasy game blew the hydra from last episode away (if you don’t get the reference, that’s fine because it’s both Australian and dated).
Anyway, this continues to be fairly generic but reasonable. Apparently saving Gran’s life involved Lyria sharing half her life force with him so now they can’t be separated (though no specifics on how far that means yet) so now of course Gran has to join Lyria and Katalina on their journey to a non-specific location (I believe Katalina first said it would be aimless to avoid pursuit). Then, some discussion later, it turns out they are actually going to head to the island of the Astrals which coincidentally is where Gran’s father said he went in a letter he sent his son. Look how well that works out for everyone.
I actually enjoyed this second episode and now that they are on the move I’m looking forward to what comes next. That said, there’s nothing in either the first two episodes that would make me recommend this to someone else if they weren’t already watching it.
Granblue Fantasy is available on Crunchyroll.
