I don't usually write reviews but having read the manhwa for this I was naturally looking forward to the anime. Unfortunately the anime is a completely ruined and butchered rendition of the manhwa. They significantly change how a lot of key things happen, they decide to take you down a confusing road of 'why am I seeing these characters and what does it have to do with anything' to provide some sense of chronological order at the cost of not explaining anything. The main character is barely seen and they focus too much time on side characters and stories that only had a few panels in the manhwa. Apart from the first couple of episodes most episodes feel very rushed. This is made especially clear in the later episodes where it actually feels like you've missed an episode or two and have no idea what's going on as it just cuts to something happening without any context as to what happened before that or how things got from A to Z because they left out B, C and so on. In short, Gin no Guardian has a great story and intriguing characters and action, but the people who did the anime made some very poor decisions that removes all of what made the manhwa good. Even from a practical anime standpoint they made bad plot and execution decisions. If you want to see the great story I suggest reading the manhwa because you will not find it here.
What the F is happening? Warning: SPOILERS Half way into season 1 and you didn't even see the actual game the story is supposed to be about. Season 1 is done and they're not even close to the "spoiler fights" from episode 1. I'm not saying they got bad pacing, nah, the pacing stayed constant. A constant chaotic rush true everything from beginning to end!! Dragging on with the filler so much the gave up on putting in what matters! MC likes the girl, nice. Oh look she also plays MCs favorite game and they become in game friend but he can't confess because he's poor and she's rich and beautiful... Anyway, 4 moths later!!! LITERALLY Skyp 4 months and just leave us a 5 second voice of a line of text. MC's favorite game shuts down "oh noo!" Anyway, here's another game to takets it's place and it's actually reality and summons a big breasted 02 from Code Gaos. But Wait, her breast are made of magical cats. Seems normal and absolutely doesn't need an explanation. MC is the actual grandson of the big game design boss, But Wait, There is More!! MCs grandpa is also the Adoptive Father of his Crush!! Yah, that totally make sens! "oh no, heroine has been kidnapped by minion of Namelees, topless evil boss, she's so scared, she wants to run away!!"Anyway, 2 episodes of 0 screen time later an she just casually walks in the room of the big boss while wearing streapper bikinis and now she works for him. Seems logical MC is a poor orfan, oh wait no, he has a grampa that's a billonneer. oh wait, his grandpa is the father of his crush that's also his classmate. Oh wait, he's an orphan again cuz he only got the message 2 days after the old man got shot. Also his best and only friend is a Gigola that teleports like an Enderman from Minecraft. The only difference is that the guy is Asian. There is like... 3 scenes of Fanservice in 12 episode and they each last only 3 or 4 frames. CONCLUSION: Haven't read the manga, from anime alone this is basically Full time Magister on steroids with even less budget! Don't read this. The loss of neurons is too great. The Fanservice is almost 0 and the whole thing is not worth the time wasted to watch it.
Ugh, for those of you wondering why the rating for this show is so bad, is because the story is very interesting and great, but the creators dont give you what you want. You know that main character guy? Yeah hes only in about 40% of the show they give you all this backstory for a bunch of people you honestly could care less about and hide all the good parts. I don't understand why they'd ruin such a good story by making everything so runaround and dragged out. Such a good story gone to waste...
