Giant Beasts of Ars – Sneak Peek

The story takes place in the world of Ars, which is inhabited by large, savage beasts that have been exploiting the land and feeding on human resources. The decade-long war between humans and beasts shows no signs of ending.

Some humans are tasked with the responsibility of taking down the beasts, similar to the Survey Corps from Attack on Titan, and they are called Nagimori. Nagimori are super beings gifted with uncontrollable magical powers blessed upon them by Kannagi.

In the story, a former Nagimori named Jiiro mourns the death of his partner and meets a young woman named Kuumi, who has recently awakened her magical powers. The two of them form a contract to save the city from a giant beast attack.

Giant Beasts of Ars Short Review

Giant Beasts of Ars has some similarities to Attack on Titan but has a different plot and visuals. In this anime, magic is the way to defeat monsters, while in Attack on Titan, brutal force and strategies are used to slay the beasts down.

I would say that the pacing did not feel natural, and the producers should have worked better if they wanted Giant Beasts of Ars to match the level of Attack on Titan. No matter what, I would say AOT cannot be replaced by using the same plot unless there is something worth catching our attention.

The tense pacing will keep you hooked up to a certain point, but then it starts to lose momentum. No doubt the story building exceeded our expectations, but it got pulled apart in all directions, causing minimal character development.

The series is pretty average, and I think a 6.5 rating in MAL suits the anime because of its unrelatable and uncoordinated story progression.


We hope the episode guide will help you to stay alert and plan your day if you are looking forward to watching Giant Beasts of Ars anime.
