Grancrest Senki (Record of Grancrest War)



Plot Premise:
Quote:
The fantasy action light novel series takes place on a continent ruled by chaos. The chaos breeds disaster, but the Lords of the continent have the power of "Crest" (a Mark of the Saint) that can calm the chaos and protect the people. However, one day the rulers throw away their creed of purifying the chaos, and instead start to fight each other for each others' Crests and to gain dominion over one another. The novels center on Silka, an isolated mage who scorns the Lords for abandoning their creed, and a wandering knight named Theo, who is on a journey to train to one day liberate his hometown, which is under tyrannical rule. Silka and Theo make an everlasting oath to each other as master and servant, and work together to reform this continent dominated by wars and chaos.

Oh, wow, from the creator of Lodoss?! Now I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully, like Lodoss, this will be a hard fantasy, no isekai & harem hijinks like in many other LNs. I like Lodoss OVA, and the TV series is fine...which makes me feeling nostalgic of Lodoss TV opening song right now :

First episode is out on Crunchyroll.

I think so far, the show is alright but I find the Theo (the male protagonist) to be really blend. Nothing about his personality so far really stands out to me even though he made an impression for Siluca. At least they introduced the story so far in the beginning.

The animation quality seems good enough for A-1 Pictures at the moment but I expect it to drop in quality somewhere down the line.

Might have potential.

Whatever that potential might be, I doubt this will ever realize it the way this is going. I've heard praise for the original creator, but seeing how things are progressing I'm not brimming with confidence.

Kinda cheap production quality though

I get the feeling this is one of those shows where the plot will never make sense under any circumstances.

For the anime maybe, given that light novel is quite long...already past 8 volumes if I remember correctly. I’ve never read it though, so take my words with grains of salt.

Episode 1 felt a bit rushed, MC kinda bland imho. I will give this 2 more episodes to see how it develops.

Really? It's the opposite for me, i find theo to be a good character, hes not op, hes weak but he has a good heart which makes people want to follow him especially in a dark time when hope is lost.

It was okay but definitely lacking a good hook. I definitely agree that it was way too rushed and the characterisation suffers as a consequence. The wannabe hero conveniently summarises his entire character to the audience in a one minute infodump and the mage woman's actions come across as convenient plot developments rather than her having a mysterious agenda. Plus she has virtually no chemistry with the wannabe hero. The main POV should've been from the wannabe hero from the start and the episode should've started on his background rather than the mage and then have the mage introduced from his POV so we get a sense of her actually being a mysterious benefactor. It also should've been a double episode to properly pace the plot developments. The wannabe hero goes from wannabe knight to Lord of a small town in a day with all the perspective of catching a pokemon.
