Granblue Fantasy Episode 11

Review:

Not sure what to make of this. It is pretty stock standard go inside person’s consciousness, figure out their baggage, correct them, and then they wake up. In this case followed by a quick fight sequence and a minor reveal about Gran’s father. All and all, pretty ordinary fare for fantasy/adventure stories.

I’m guessing the whole sequence probably would have been more touching if I actually liked either Gran or Lyria. While I don’t dislike them, I think both are pretty ordinary as characters. They don’t do anything to really set themselves a part or to have depth, or even be memorable. So when Lyria says she wants to disappear, I’m kind of okay with that. Give your full power to Gran and disappear. Gran seems to feel differently but as an audience member I wasn’t overly invested in this conflict.

I think the only moment this episode where I really sat up and took notice was when Rosetta dropped that minor bomb-shell about Gran’s father, that Gran didn’t even hear and it certainly wasn’t explained given it was pretty much the end of the episode. It had kind of seemed like the story had forgotten that Gran was looking for his father and now they just kind of drop that in there.

Anyway, this still remains perfectly watchable and not a lot else. It looks pretty if that helps.

Granblue Fantasy is available on Crunchyroll.

  1. While you are correct about this anime not being the most “outlandish” I still enjoy it none the less! I think the side characters are a bit more interesting than Lyria or Gran. Even though I think Lyria is totes adorbs ❀ I like the story of the gods/goddess being added to the mix as well. Rosetta is so pretty! I want to know more about her! I also really like the little shop lady 🙂

    1. Some of the side characters have been more interesting, but the show hasn’t let us really get to know any of them. This show has all the ingredients for something wonderful but has kind of just stuck to middle of the road. It is enjoyable enough but it isn’t something I’ll really remember after it comes to an end either.
