They just suddenly appeared.



They're his mundane classmates from episode one. there's the outgoing one who's cheering on the shy stalker.

This, Infinite Stratos and Mahou Shoujo Madoka is the better animes released as of late.

Some people seem to dislike Dragon Crisis quite a bit but I can't really see why. It's million times better then 90% of all the other crap that gets released.

Anyways, episode three was good, Oh and I agree that the parts where Rose yells "I love Ryuji" and so forth at the top of her lungs are a bit annoying since her voice is so sharp.

I hate the voiceactor of Rose. Every series she's in, she ruins it. Her voice just pisses me off, it's not cute, it's just annoying as heck. I'm usually not like this, but she's ruining a decent series. A voice like that fits into some comedy, like K-on, but not this!

Put me down for meh as well. I keep watching this show forgetting how bad it is XD. Btw anyone else think that the telphaly between Onyx and Rose was just a lazy excuse not to animate their mouth movements?

No. It's pretty common understanding in dragon lore that dragons can not only take human form, but communicate with each other telepathically.

Hmm really? My bad then. That’s pretty interesting though, I’ve never known much about dragons besides knights slaying them.

Yeah, you kind of have to be a D & D nerd like me know that. Though I don't play D&D I only read the novels.

This show is just your typical run of the mill formulaic shounen crap. Seems like the last few drops of creativity left in the well anime studios have been drinking from have finally dried up this season. I face palmed, it was just that bad.

Dragons are awesome but not the way they're portrayed in this show.

Characters aren't all that original

I just happen to really like Dragons.

I hope 2 seasons are going to be made.

I was going to ask earlier, What kind of dragon lore are you talking about? the description sounded more like Gary Gygax's version of dragons. and even then not until his dragonlance series. In the orginal D&D only certain dragons (Gold and the (singular) Platinum dragon to be specific) could change forms. Then it was because they could take any form at will. However that's a game. Actual myths and legends and tales about dragons are much more complex. Eastern dragons especially are entirely different creatures.

That said, The dragons in Dragon Crisis are largely following a model that would be recognizable to a D&D nerd like myself.

Yes it's more like the D& D and Dragonlance model for Dragons. That kind of fantasy genre is quite popular and has a large following. Yet I can't recall an anime that has parted from the traditional view of eastern and western dragons to adopt this fantasy fiction kind of model. Also, I have not seen this model in a story in a modern setting. The only place I think I can say I have seen this view in Japanese fictional culture is in video games, as in the "Breath of Fire" series (which is a favorite of mine). Anyways, it's appealing to me, even if the story is not the best in world so far. It still get's a chance to hopefully improve.

Overall I'm not sure where all the hate is coming from.

I kinda like the idea of magical beings infiltrating our modern world and living as it's citizens. And the White Dragon is cute. I hope her little Romeo and Juliet play turns out better than Shakespeare's.

That's a bit unfair. She did pretty good in Hayate no Gotoku and Toradora! Granted, she hasn't been doing too good lately.

My impression of Dragon Crisis so far... Disappointing. This was the anime I was REALLY looking forward to this season. Not even halfway into the season and they've already done the mandatory beach episode. There already 3 or 4 animes from this season, that I'd put ahead of Dragon Crisis (Gosick, Puella Magi Madoka, Kore wa Zombie desu ka?, and maybe Yumekui Merry). Forget the lack of originality (ALL animes are guilty of that to some degree), the art design is quite ugly.
