Reiji Ozora, a high-school student who excels at nothing, tires of every game he's played - that is, until one day his friend Maiko introduces him to the world of Dragon Drive. In it, players are given virtual dragons to ride and fight against one another; though unfortunately for Reiji, he's assigned to a small dragon with unknown attributes. Determined to increase his skills, Reiji soon jacks in to a training program when suddenly he, Maiko, and a boy named Daisuke are transported into another world called Riyku! In this new foreign land, not only must these friends try to find their way home and fulfill what is asked of them, but Reiji must also discover the truth behind his dragon's abilities.
