2. Theory Section

On the surface, Gibiate looks like a generic isekai anime, but there’s more to what meets the eye. Set in a world where a virus has affected most of humanity, a ninja, a samurai, and a warrior monk takes it upon themselves to cure this disease while fighting the monsters.  

It’s rather unusual for an anime to come up with a plot such as this, but at the same time, it’s unique and exciting to look at.
