Three Episode Report: ULTRAMARINE MAGMELL

The Netflix exclusive anime Ultramarine Magmell features a dangerous new land with fantastic creatures but is it worth the trip? Welcome to Three Episode Report. This article will judge an anime on its first three episodes to show if it gets a PASS (meaning it passed and more episodes need to be watched) or a FAIL (meaning you probably should not watch it any further). On the chopping block today is another in the genre of specialist hired to perform a job in a strange land based on a manga of the same name.

Summary

A new continent named Magmell suddenly appears in the ocean, and a new age of exploration begins. Explorers venture to the island to find previously unknown lifeforms and resources, but it’s up to a rescuer for hire named Inyo to save them from disaster.

Ultramarine Magmell

Positive

The series is blessed with some very good animation. Through these pleasant visuals, action scenes come off very fast-paced and with some brutal combat. The main character Inyo isn’t afraid to unleash violence on the different mythical creatures populating Magmell because he is aware its a kill or be killed situation. This hesitation free atmosphere lets the series have a good flow about it.

Negative

Sadly, the world of fantasy which is presented doesn’t have much in this series the audience hasn’t seen before. Much more detailed lands have been presented in the different Isekai (alternate world) anime which have been released lately. Sure these are usually video game worlds but the uniqueness of the world is laid out for the audience, but here Magmell is just a continent with strange creatures but without much buildup to give the audience any real payoff.

Also, the cast really isn’t engaging. The cast of Inyo and Zero are the only real individuals of meaning so far and their powers seem too overpowerful without any type of weakness displayed. It seems too easy just to summon the necessary material at the moment to fix whatever adventure of the week is presented.

Grade

With the PASS/FAIL rating system the only real option is FAIL which seems harsh. Ultramarine Magmell isn’t bad, but it is just not phenomenal. If you are looking for a more engaged series where a specialist for hire explores a fantastic world, check out Dimension W instead.

Ultramarine Magmell is streaming on Netflix.
