Dragon Crisis!

Apr 8, 2011

This series started out with quite of bit of promise. The world in which this takes place in seems to be pretty interesting- "lost preciouses" floating around the world which have untold powers, a "society" of people, breakers, that have the ability to use these lost preciouses or would like to research them. Anways, on to the review...

Story: 4/10

This is a very disappointing story. The premise was very strong, and the first arc was somewhat decent, but all they do is build a few new characters in the following arc and the final arc is... horrible. They manage to survive through a plot device, after the main character does something stupid brought about by another plot device. This story is just not alll the great.

Animation: 7/10

This series employs a slightly unusual or non-mainstream art-style, but most of the action is well done and the character designs are fairly unique and attractive. Nothing that would be a game changer, if you will, but it was well done.

Sound: 7/10

This series brings in some big names, such as Rie KugimiyaYukanaYui Horie, and Hiroshi Kamiya along with some catchy OPs and EDs. The sound in the series isn't overly awe-inspiring however.

Characters: 4/10

Some of the characters in this series are fairly good... but too many lack any depth, are too cliched, or just not needed. Ai, despite having a bit of depth, could have been dropped from the story and everything would have been fine. Margura was an ok character, but lacked a reasonable amount of depth. Ryuuji's parents, these bad-ass breakers, barely even make an appearance and then just disappear. Eriko just hangs around for no real reason and is given basically no depth.

Overall: 5.5/10

Well, this series was, for lack of a better word, an utter and complete disappointment. And that's all I really have to say for it.

4/10 story
7/10 animation
7/10 sound
4/10 characters
5.5/10 overall

yeah, watched the whole thing in hopes of better development, because it held incredible potential, in my opinion. I also enjoyed the art style, it was different, you could easily tell all the characters apart. I basically agree with your review entirely

It was a cute show but the ending was just... wow. I don't even understand how Ryuji's parents could have been there.
