What do I think of the series? Should you watch it?
I must say how pleasantly surprised I was to have watched this series. I’m always looking form good anime and Shingeki no Bahamut is very good. The story is simple, but not boring. The characters are the typical archetypes, but that’s not a bad thing. This series really stands out with it’s animation. I also like how the when the characters are introduced they have special captions (thought I don’t like the font). This series isn’t particular groundbreaking, but amazing animation with enjoyable characters and action is good enough for me. The biggest problem, it’s ONLY 12 episode deep and I don’t think they be more. That’s a total shame. Rating: 8/10
