Synopsis

A new era of exploration begins with the sudden appearance of a new continent known as Magmell. Magmell's vast trove of never-before-seen natural resources spurs on the exploration of its vast landscape. However, the unknown is not always docile. In order to sustain the expeditions, people known as "anglers" specialize in dealing with Magmell's dangerous wildlife. One such angler is the highly-skilled and experienced Inyou, who performs search and rescue operations for clients with the help of his assistant, Zero. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

When I first began this anime, it had piqued my interest from the start just by how much potential it was given by the fascinating setting. A new continent “Magmel” had been discovered, which was full of all kind of varieties of beasts, to dangerous plants and who knows what else could be there. But in fact, the mystic part of it would make it exciting and make you curious about exploring the island and figure out new things as you move on. Of course, also all sorts of people wanted to explore this new continent to gain fame, discover new things that could possibly make them insanely rich. Here comes the “Angler” whose job is to save those who are stupid enough to get into all kinds of trouble over there. They also possess a really cool power which can pretty much materialize anything. Form simple blocks to something more sophisticated like big mechanic hands, even machinery was an option. It was kind of implied the possibilities where endless. Sadly we never explored it, and it was there from the start with no genuine explanation given.

As you might’ve noticed by my subtle hints, these possible ideas that could make the anime much more appealing and engaging were just dumped in the trash can and lost all its a mystic vibe in the process. Not to mention, even the character that could offer some form of entertainment. Were used once in their own respective one episode long mini-arc, given some kind of half-assed characterization that didn’t do much really. Even then they were an uninteresting and a boring bunch from the start. In the end, they didn’t serve any real purpose and just became a means to an end and nothing more. On the other hand, you had Inyou and Zero, who were somewhat amusing but nothing that changed the sad predicament we already were in. The story, in a nutshell, was episodic “monster-of-the-week” format or you could also say it was “which dumb person to save next.” In other words, some idiot ventured into Magmell ended up endangering himself or someone else and had to call “Anglers” to rescue them from there. Inyou was one of them, and along with his cute companion Zero, they were up to the task.

However, they also gave us an absurd amount of whacky and useless filler episodes. When we finally got a random villain out of nowhere, he ended up being just plain annoying and nothing special too. It was a depthless effort to try and wrap up the anime, and make the ending give some kind of sense of closure. Most likely also an implication that time wasted up to this point was worth it. But I can assure that’s not the case, it ended up being a complete waste of time. The foundation for some nice story-telling was ruined quickly in a matter of three episodes. The first few episodes were somewhat in the clear but were barely hanging on to cliff toward absolute ruin. Art and animation were also average and nothing special in general either. Though, If you want something similar than watch “7seeds” instead, that one was at least entertaining from start to end and had a lot of varieties of characters. Even if the execution and direction for both was undoubtedly a failure. However, stay completely clear from “Gunjou no Magmel,” which indeed was a waste of precious hours of my time and thus you can just skip over it altogether.

I hate it. I hate it when anime with potential disappoints me. It’s different when anime I know is bad turn out the way they do. When it comes to promising anime that turns sour is what really irks me. I don’t mean that the anime has a bad ending or something, I mean that there is no ending because the story goes nowhere. Why oh why did Gunjou No Magmel have to be that anime. Gunjou No Magmel starts out with some potential. You have this huge island appear out of nowhere. Endless adventures and discoveries can be had. The characters are eager to explore their surroundings as are the viewers. They throw in tidbits of an overarching story that has remnants of Hunter x Hunter or One Piece. Everything was being set up nicely. The first few episodes do a good job at establishing the world with some self contained one off episodes giving this feeling of anticipation that they are going to launch into something big soon. Halfway through the series and they continue to only show self contained one off episodes. Now I’m starting to get a bit worried. Usually by now a story should be established. Despite this red flag I decide to keep going. A few more episodes pass and now I’m starting to get bored. I now have made the stark realization that there is no story and there never will be. I spoke to fast however as Gunjou No Magmel finally got around to having a story by episode 11. Keep in mind this is a 13 episode series. I cannot stand it when an anime with the potential for a good story decides to abandon it outright in favor of filler episodes and then decides to attempt a half ass story at the very end of the series. Now I don’t have a problem with filler episodes. I understand they are integral to long running series. What I do have a problem with is short one cour series where 90% of the show is filler. That is a problem and unfortunately the show has more. The characters with the exception of one are completely unlikeable. The main character and his loli partner show potential early on but then show their true colors a few episodes in by harassing an innocent store clerk for shits and giggles. Other than those two you have the store clerk who I initially felt sorry for till I found out he was a creepy old pervert. The rest of the cast appear only once or twice for the filler episodes so they aren’t worth digging into. For all the bad characters though there was one good one. A girl who had a positive attitude and was pleasant to look at. Ironically the best episodes were the ones with her in it. Nothing really special in terms of music nor is the art and animation. It’s decent I suppose. Doesn’t stand out in a good way or bad way. Gunjou no Magmel will be remembered as the story that went nowhere. An anime with the potential to be interesting and engaging is ignored in favor of bogging down all the airtime with endless filler. Thanks for wasting my time.
