Straightforward and innocent Hisone Amakasu is a Self-Defense Force rookie stationed at the Air Self-Defense Force's Gifu Base. She was struggling with the fact that she sometimes hurts people unintentionally by her innocent words and decided to join the Air Self-Defence Force, hoping to maintain a certain distance from people. This decision led her to a fateful encounter which profoundly changed her life. It was the "OTF" dragon hidden in the base and it chose Hisone as his pilot. When it soared into the sky with Hisone, her fate as a dragon pilot was decided. It is said that dragons have a key to the future of the world…
Gorgeous animation style and some very charismatic characters but sadly that's where it all ended for me. Most people will say that they didn't like the last 2 episodes of the show but I'd say that the issues with the show happened much earlier. I was suppose to care for these dragons and the bond between the dragon and the main protagonist but it just never did it for me due to the inconsistencies of how the girl and the dragon react to certain situations. The whole concept of the show seems to be about caring for the people that you love and following your heart while making some tough choices in life to protect those that you love but it becomes hard to get something like that across when your other main character, a dragon, can't express himself at all. Most of the time these dragons just act up and we play a guessing game with the main characters about why they do the things they do. So one time the dragon rejects the girls, the next time they don't and while you're trying to figure out why these things are happening you come to the conclusion that nothing has really ever changed. These dragons just can't express themselves which the director uses to manipulate the main character into moving into certain directions. Dope artstyle, dope characters but I'm not a fan of our transforming dragons...
This isn't my typical cup of tea, but it was only Netflix and I thought I could use it as background noise while I did inventory. Turns out I ended up really enjoying it and found myself stopping what I was doing just to watch the scenes. It was rather a cute show and I am satisfied with it's ending. The character build up was done well and the art is cute too. Because I had been preoccupied I hadn't noticed their lack of noses while the characters were facing the screen, I have seen that style elsewhere, so I found it refreshing and amusing. Rest assured they had noses during their side profiles. The main characters role was developed nicely and she is definitely the hero of this story. Her sacrifice was felt by her comrades and her commanding officers, even I felt a tad distraught with her absence, until the last scene. Very well done in my book.
