Erementar Gerad Review






A quick recap of the plot: a Sky Pirate named Coud accidently opens a coffin and removes a seal that awakens an Eden Raid named Reverie Metherlance or Ren for short. She hates humans in general but after a group of soldiers try to kidnap her, she was forced to react with Coud which she becomes a weapon of great power. Coud and Ren are joined by Cisqua, Rowan, and Kuea who are three members of Arcaile which is a group that protects Eden Raids. They go on a quest to the Garden of Eden which a haven for Eden Raids.

The animation quality was great in the beginning but it kind of went down towards the last few episodes. The music was really good with Yuki Kajiura composing and really made the scenes. Now let's get into the plot and characters. The overall plot was pretty basic with them heading towards the Garden of Eden encountering people along the way including the Chaos Choir. There was so much potential with the Eden Raids' backstory but it was wasted. Coud and Ren didn't have much depth as characters along with Rowan and Kuea who they had no character development or even an episode about their past. Cisqua has to be my favorite character in the entire series as she appeared first as cocky and money-hoarding but as the series goes on, she reveals a more serious side and becomes a better leader than she was in the beginning. Other characters like Wolx had their moments and such as well. Then there is the Chaos Choir who were the main villians in the series. For some reason, they were weak as villians even though their means to their goals were pretty evil. The end of the series was pretty happy and such but it does allow for another season though.

Overall, this series could have been better with deeper characters and backstory but it was a fun ride though. I give Erementar Gerad a 3 out of 5.
