Grimgar was re-released in the Funimation Anime Essentials line. Along with the classics line, these are equivalent of Funimation’s previous S.A.V.E. line of products. The tag line is Collect More, Spend Less. With the essentials line of anime, you can pickup these titles at a reduced price on Blu-ray and Digital. So if you didn’t pick it up before, you should now. You can pickup the complete series of Grimgar over at Funimation.com.
The animation quality alone makes this series a worth while watch. The emotional toll that the characters face in this world is also well thought out and executed on screen. Like most anime they manage to slide in some fan service and funny moments to cut the tension. The series is based on a series of light novels.
