Ragna Crimson is a Fun Anime

Key points for Ragna Crimson Mid-Season review:

  • Personally, I find the Ragna Crimson anime’s plot to be rather basic and predictable, and it could use more world-building to enhance the overall experience. The lack of clear explanations for Crimson’s abilities makes them feel like convenient plot devices.
  • I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the anime’s well-paced storytelling, keeping me hooked with timely developments. The intense and adrenaline-pumping fights, especially Ragna’s showdown with Ultimatia, have been standout moments that elevate the viewing experience.
  • From my perspective, the anime’s production quality is commendable, featuring great fights, impressive OSTs, and a visually appealing animation/art style. Crimson’s character, despite being a control freak, adds depth to the narrative, making her both intriguing and hard to dislike. Despite the flaws, I personally rate it 8/10, appreciating its entertainment value.

Once in a while, an anime comes out that is critically not that good but it is just plain dumb fun to watch and sweeps you away with its momentum. Ragna Crimson has become that anime for me this season. Yes, it has its issues when you look at it critically, but the sheer dumb fun I have been having watching this anime is kind of unmatched. Seriously, this anime makes me excited like a kid. That sounds weird, I know and I can’t exactly say why that happens but I love watching this anime because of that simple fact.

So welcome back to another mid-season review. Yes, “mid-season” because this anime is 24 episodes long, and episode 12 aired yesterday. Either way, today we are talking about the Ragna Crimson Anime. So strap in, and let’s get started.

What do I think of Ragna Crimson Anime so far?

So let’s start with the flaws. Despite everything it tries, the plot of this anime is pretty basic. Dare I say, even predictable at times. It also severely lacks in world-building. I’d really appreciate it if there was more world-building. Crimson’s abilities are never properly explained, so they come off as a deus ex machina, letting her do whatever she wants pretty much. Characters other than Ragna and Crimson could use a little more development; at least give us more development for characters like Kamui or Ultimatia or something.

With the flaws out of the way, let’s look at the good parts. The anime is paced incredibly well. Yes, there has been a downtime for the past few episodes but when things get going, it leaves you begging for the next episode. The fights always manage to get your adrenaline pumping. It was so much fun to see Ragna absolutely DESTROY Ultimatia. She was saved merely by luck and because of that fight, she has PTSD now and can’t use her own abilities.

Crimson is such a good character. She is a complete control freak yet she knows how to turn things around. Like, she is a douchebag for sure. But, you can’t bring yourself to hate her. Other than that, the production of the anime is pretty solid. The fights look great, the OSTs are awesome and the animation/art style is pretty good as well. Silver Link pulled off all the stops for this anime.

That is all for now!

Those were my thoughts and opinions on Ragna Crimson anime so far. As much as I wish to give it a 10/10, I cannot do that as a reviewer. So I will give it an 8/10 for now, which is still a little on the generous side because of how much I am enjoying this show. Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
