Yori, just keep your freakin’ mouth shut, geez!

There’s this anime that I really like called Rage of Bahamut (somehow based on a digital collectible card battle game). It’s been out for a while, but I just recently caught up on it. The animation is great, the soundtrack is epic, and I love the character designs and art style. The first season is mostly just fun high fantasy adventure stuff, but the second season (which takes place after a 10 year time skip) really stands out to me. The characters are wonderfully fleshed out, and the way all their motivations put them at odds with each other keeps the stakes raised and tensions high. But even though the plot is objectively a dark, violent one, the characters are a ton of fun, and there’s plenty of levity to counterbalance all the darker plot elements. The main character in the second season, Nina, is relentlessly positive in the face of adversity, which I find very appealing. Rage of Bahamut isn’t the perfect show, it’s got some weird tonal issues, but if anyone’s looking for a really high budget, high fantasy anime with a lot of energy and drama, it’s hard to go wrong with RoB.

    True but they all have ulterior motives for going as well as helping him out:
    Cho does Not want to go back to the monastery.
    Ken wants to see the look on Hirotomo’s face when he breaks the news of Nataku’s subterfuge.
    Genchu wants to see his friend and try to bury the hatchet.
    Masuhiro wants an excuse to visit Ina as he was captured for X amount of time.

  • leavescat

    Did you mean to put a comma in “like, you?” It feels like it’d read better as “But, like you, I…”

  • Xinef

    My interpretation:
    – Yori felt a billion eyes from another dimension gaze at him in disapproval, casting a shadow of doubt on what he was about to say…

  • animalia555

    Anyone else want to see a No Need For Bushido/Noragami crossover?

    Maybe it’s me but the character interactions right themselves.
