Grimgar Screencaps (and thoughts)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So I’ve been religiously screen-capping the background art of this Winter season’s Grimgar of Fantasy of Ash. ^Screenshots in above slide show. It’s been an all around good show, with episode 4 giving a powerful emotional twist to what seemed like a un-engaging, slow version of SAO. Grimgar is  my third favorite show of the season due to sweet characters, surprisingly refreshing take on fantasy/gaming like setting, and IT’S GORGEOUS ARTWORK. While the character artwork doesn’t seamlessly blend with the backgrounds, I couldn’t care less.

Outside of Phantom World, this show has some of the most gorgeous art of the season. It reminds me of rustic watercolors, and yet the detail is so beautiful and surreal. In so many ways, it brings its own energy to the quiet world of Grimgar, where adventuring is not so glamorous and actual slow, hard work. So, it’s been a joy to watch these characters slowly develop and experience heartbreak and precious little victories on such gorgeous backdrops of art.

This show reminds me of 2015’s Winter Show The Rolling Girls which had similar, gorgeous artwork, but more soothing and peaceful. And like The Rolling Girls last season, my screen caps are keeping me company by running cycles as my desktop backgrounds! ❤ My only hope for this show is that we get good resolution… because I’m not quite sure how that’s going to happen in the next couple weeks. But fingers crossed!

So, are you watching Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash this season?

    I will watch this anime someday, I heard people recommended grimgar are so good but they didn’t write the reason why it is so good. If I didn’t read this post, I would not have the purpose for watch this anime. Those background pics made me stop scroll down and watch them.

    Maybe your post is the best post among many posts I read this week.

    Thank you, Jamie.

      Awwwww; well I’m so glad you found some motivation to try the show someday! I think it is a little hard for people to discuss what makes the good since it delves into spoiler territory. It’s a very seemingly simplistic show but I greatly enjoyed it.
      Awwwwwwwwwww thank you for the sweet compliment, I’m glad to give a good voice to Grimgar! ❤ You're so welcome! ❤
