** Death is final in Grimgar. Despite it's resemblance to an RPG, fallen comrades can't be brought back from the dead with magic or an item. If a teammate dies, then they're permanently dead. In addition, a cremation and funeral are quite expensive, just as they are in real life.

Haruhiro wakes up in a mysterious fantasy world, along with several other young adults. None of them can remember how they got there or [[LaserGuidedAmnesia any personal details asides from their names]]. They have no choice but join the Frontier Army's Reserve Force, Crimson Moon, as volunteer soldiers. These volunteer soldiers act as freelance monster exterminators, killing monsters and turning in the loot for cash. Haruhiro forms a adventuring group with Yume, Shihoru, Ranta, Manato, and Moguzo. Unfortunately, they are very inexperienced and must struggle to kill even the weakest monsters.

** Of the multiple, "humans sent to and becoming trapped on a fantasy world that follows RolePlayingGame mechanics" stories. Grimgar's spin is if people who are ''NOT'' gamers get sent to such a planet, and fail to grasp mechanics quickly enough to avoid unnecessary death, they do NOT become ace combatants or charismatic figureheads. It frames heroes like [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Kirito]], [[Overlord2012 Momonga]], and [[LogHorizon Shiroe]] having it significantly easier because [[GenreSavvy they know]] what they're getting into, as opposed to people who never played (or remember playing) these sort of games.

* DrowningMySorrows: The boys start to frequent the tavern [[spoiler: after Manato's death.]] At one point, their table is littered with empty flagons and they're noticeably inebriated. Whether or not they're actually of legal drinking age doesn't seem to be an issue, since they're served alcohol without being questioned. Considering the males all refer to themselves with '[[JapanesePronouns ore]],' it seems unlikely they are kids.

* CameBackWrong: The head priest warn Haruhiro and company after [[spoiler:Manato's death]] that if they don't cremate the body, then it will be resurrected as a zombie servant of the No Life King in 3 to 5 days. In the anime, we're shown an example of this, [[spoiler:when the three members of Mary's previous group attack Haruhiro and the others in episode eleven.]]

* CrapsackWorld: Grimgar in general to newcomers from beyond the gate. Grimgar is a violent, dangerous world that is purely capitalistic. EVERYTHING costs money to do, and none of Grimgar's locals have any charity or kindness in their hearts. Newcomers find themselves stuck in this world, with only 10 silver pieces and bare bones information about the world given to them, and are forced to risk their lives against dangerous monsters to earn money and survive. It's also impossible to find a safer job like baking or being a merchant. Remember that everything in this world costs money? That includes buying the right to such jobs, and with only 10 silver pieces, the only guilds cheap enough to join ARE the adventuring and monster-slaying guilds.
