When a person is born, they are each given a book. Their fate is from the moment of birth all the way to the point of death to follow what is written in the book down to the exact letter. These books are known as ‘tomes of fate’.

Among all of these people, X is born with a book that has absolutely nothing written in it known as the ‘blank tome’. Then one day he meets three others in possession of blank tomes. Their names are Reina, Shane, and Tao, and together, these four set off on a journey to discover their roles in this life.

Three Episode Impression

Ex is born without anything written in his book of fate, but he learns to create his own path! Along with his newfound friends, the group travels throughout the different stories of the world, correcting the Chaos Tellers they find there. Ex and his comrades will not be remembered by any of the story’s inhabitants after their world is restored, but they continue to fight on. All the while, the Chaos-bringing Loki is hiding in the shadows, watching them…

This series is based off of a mobile RPG that came out a few years back. Though the story is interesting and has a lot of promise, the way that this anime starts out is jarring, especially for newcomers to the story. Grimms Notes The Animation starts off in the middle of the story, backtracking later to tell us how Ex first learns of the Chaos Tellers and meets Reina, Tao and Shane. It begins with a story on Red Riding Hood, which is actually interesting because of the twists they’ve brought about for the tale, but then quickly devolves into just one fairytale story after another. Grimms Notes The Animation seems like it has a good premise, and the animation quality is there as well! However, given how the first few episodes have gone so far, we wouldn’t recommend this anime for anyone other than perhaps fans of the mobile game.
