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.
I liked the premise of this anime..but as others have said there are gaps. In addition, it is inconsistent as hell. Someone mentioned that the main character starts with all the money he needs. Yet, for plot this money is unusable the first time around. And then the very next episode money from the game is being used to save a dying girls life... -Additionally, they say all stats etc transfer over from game1. This means Protagonist should literally be level 189+ starting game2. It also displays levels in a scene. Where are all the other players from game1? Shouldn't someone recognize protag as the best(or highest level) player ever? Even without the money, running around in base gear was supposedly a signature thing only he did. I think there's supposed to be an implication between the monster from game1 to the "Collector" in game2 but it's never explored nor explained. It also says money=power which is also portayed a little inconsistently. Main character facetanks a 100million hit and explosion without a scratch one episode. But a couple episodes after that, a 1million hit takes 20% of his health after he actually has raid tier equipment and someone tells him not to be cocky. Lastly, the bad guys specifically say to let protags waifu be taken by bill collectors. Which is really weird to start with, but then somehow she ends up physically stuck inside the game with who we are led to believe are the main villains? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he isn't like Kirito all the dang time. But story inconsistency is something that continually bugs the heck out of me.
