Chaos Dragon // First Impressions

Screenshot - 7_6_2015 , 9_17_23 PMThis next anime can be described as the following: Ryohgo Narita, Kinoko Nasu, Izuki Kougyoku, Gen Urobuchi, Kinomune Miwa, Makoto Sanda, and Simadoriru all sit down and play a tabletop RPG with their own custom characters for six days and they write material based on the game. I am not kidding.

Chaos Dragon: Sekiryu Seneki, a Connect and Silver Link adaptation of the light novel Red Dragon, is set in the year 3015 of the Imperial Era,  where the territories of D’Natia and Kouran have waged war for supremacy. Because of the war ravaging the country into total chaos, the guardian deity of Nil Kamui, the eponymous Red Dragon, has grown out of control.

Guys, I’m not gonna sugarcoat this. If there was a guidebook on how not to write an introductory episode, Chaos Dragon would’ve done every single rule in the book. This show looks generic and dumb, sounds generic and dumd, and is generic and dumb. This is essentially the Gunslinger Stratos of this summer season: A show that, in the end, won’t even be worth the time and effort. It’s just a completely uninteresting first episode, and it’s gonna take a hell of a lot of effort to convince me otherwise. Also, somebody on the animation staff needs to know how speed lines work.
