Stray Notes on Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash
A-1 Pictures really went out of their way to make Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash look and feel different to the other anime in this slightly worn-out TV trope. After all, we’ve all seen our fair share of “trapped in another world” anime this season. I guess it’s impossible to miss it with shows like KONOSUBA and Re:ZERO stealing the spotlight all year round. However, the main reason Grimgar is a standout is because of the weight – both physical and psychological – it presents to us.
