Rage of Bahamut (Shingeki no Bahamut) was supposed to be a teaser and promotional material for the game that it was originally based on. But the anime went way above expectation with its simple story and charming characters. It is an epic fantasy anime with no good or evil. The only villain in the anime is the Bahamut, who is sleeping in the story’s entirety. So the whole story of the anime is basically an adventure where characters with different perspectives of life fight and save each other.
Rage of Bahamut is one of the few anime on my list that ticks the box of CGI done right. It has flawless animation, unique character designs, and epic background art. The characters are not genric. Each has a different personality. However, I wish the story were a little longer because it felt fast and rushed, leaving no room for relationship growth between characters. But still, it is an anime you can easily binge-watch and get a satisfying feeling of a good ending.
