Plot: Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash
The plot of this fantasy anime revolves around the fantasy world of Grimgar. There are several adventures to enjoy in this series. The anime starts with a group of people who are great adventurers who lost in the fantasy land Grimgar. Moreover, this gang has no idea how they got there. They do not even have any idea about their names. Moreover, there is one strict rule in this land. The law is that whether a person has to kill or otherwise has to die.
This Japanese anime follows a number of the set of adventurers who form their group to fight against all the evil forces. Moreover, the group wants to survive the deadly and risky conditions on the land of Grimgar. The head of the group is the charismatic priest Manato. The other members of the group are knight Ranata, a warrior who is very kind Moguzo, a mage who is very shy Shihoru, a happy and cheerful hunter Yume, and a thief who always seems nervous Haruhiro. Although every member of this group is fearless and daring, they all have different personalities. It is fun and exciting to watch how, despite having so different characters, everyone lives together. Moreover, they take care of each other in every step to survive the brutality.
This world exists in reality, and therefore, the consequences are also real. Nobody can go back if once he meets his or her end.
