Gleipnir deals with a lot of graphic stuff that many anime viewers will find objectionable. Moreover, its underage characters and “furry monsters” might make people believe that it’s more of light-hearted anime but it is nothing close to that. It is, in fact, far more dark and serious that you would expect it to be if you haven’t read its source manga. Probably the best thing about it is its character designs and the way in which it maintains an element of mystery throughout its runtime. So if you believe that ‘Geipnir’ is your kind of anime, read on further to know all about its upcoming season 1.
