    I honestly don't think Alexis's army being so supportive of his romance is realistic, even if they want an end to the war and know that a peaceful resolution is ideal. Not that I mind though, really.

    I enjoyed this episode.

    I did not expect them to redeem Marrine so soon or have her acknowledge the fact she sold her body for Milza's military support.

    It also appears that both Marrine and Theo know who the real threat is. I hope this anime continues for quite a few more episodes, unless they intend to end it on 26 episodes then I think it may get rushed.

    Stay away from Anime News Network review of Grancrest Seki. Whoever the reviewer is, is reviewing it on what he or she does not like rather than what is in the episode and story.

    Convincing Marrine she couldn't win was something only Alexis could do.

    Since he's recommending the both of them ally under Theo, it gives them an out that neither side conceded to the other, that they unified peacefully as intended, and Theo will abandon the continent entirely when the conflict is over.

    It really is the optimal solution.

    The challenge now is how Theo will preserve the Chaos beings (werewolves, vampirekin) despite forming the Grand Crest.

    ANN reviews haven't been relevant for at least eight years. ANN is the poster child of taking a hobby, turning it into a job, and immediately growing to hate it.

    A fairly milquetoast resolution to the great 'dozen episode' war. Looks like the big bads are gearing up for what I can only hope isn't the typical final boss fight of an anime that ran out of good villains. Grancrest has been more entertaining that I give it credit for so far, so I'm sure they'll come up with something good for the last conflict.

    Who are those two in the background at 11:53, and why does one get to fight in a chamberpot? Did the flotsam that animated this episode run out of character designs, throw this in, and assume it was so ugly we would just avert our eyes? At this point, janky animation is all a part of the Grancrest experience and charm, so I'll deal, but that was especially double-take worthy.

    It's for good luck. Instead of dying in battle, the armour is built in mind for when you get old and fat.

    It's the best type of armour.

    Another solid episode.

    No action but a lot of information.

    Episode 21












    --------------------------

    -The curse thing, I totally forgot about that. Aishela is pretty useless now without her powers. Not that it prevents her from wearing skimpy armour.

    -The game-ending move would obviously be to summon the Grand Crest right then and there. There's no reason to delay it, and there's no physical barrier to summoning it either. It's unceremonious, but it'll end the war, because:

    1) The mages will have no magic after you form this and end all Chaos, supposedly.
    2) Your current mages are crippled without their wands, giving you a severe disadvantage.

    -The grail girl is the real MVP.

    Can't they somehow make new wands and tattoos? Are these mages really so stupid as to not have researched the tools that are given to them at all? Mages in most stories do mostly R&D...

    Spunky.

    Agreed, you'd think they would have come up with multiple ways of using magic but just didn't use it because wands were superior and also more useful ( for the organization ).

    Sounded and looked like to me that they can use magic, but it's freaking slow without the chaos orbs in their wands.

    There seemed to be some demon lord behind the mages, so it's possible that as long as a chaos orb is used, the higher chaos creatures will know. Kind of as long as you buy an American CPU in our world, the NSA will have an automatic way to get in, no matter who built the rest of the PC/mobile device.

    But yeah, it's pretty strange they didn't even seem to make any effort. On the other hand, I don't see how the mage academy could fare so well either in this war. They are basically against the rest of the world. Unless they can summon food out of nothing, a simple siege could make them die in a miserable, slow way.

    If that was the ending, it sure felt rushed IMO.

    If werewolves get turned into normal people and Artists just lose their art, why did the cat have to die instead of turning into a normal cat? That was shit. It's all good to say "Destroy Chaos so people can choose how to live", but if you have non-evil sentient beings around then it's also genocide.

    It's still genocide even if they are evil.

    The difference is the cat was a literal summoned demon, an immortal. The werewolves and vampirekin were born in the "material realm" for lack of a better term.

    The Vampire Lord was the same way. It didn't matter when the older brother killed his body, he still existed. They were both non-physical beings made flesh on the "material world" side.
