Synopsis

Learning to ride and tame dragons comes easy to most students at Ansarivan Dragonar Academy—except for first-year student Ash Blake, who is known by his fellow classmates as the "number one problem child." Poor Ash is the laughing stock at school because, despite his unfashionably large star-shaped brand that marks him as a future dragon master, he has nothing to show for it. His dragon has never appeared.

Until now, that is. One fateful day, Ash's dragon awakes in full glory, but appears different than any dragon ever seen before—in the form of a beautiful girl! What's worse, Ash soon discovers that this new dragon has attitude to spare, as she promptly informs him that she is the master, and he, the servant.

Ash's problems with dragon riding have only just begun.

So, this is my first official review, and I hope to write many more after this one.

Story: 6

The story is a generic harem/fantasy story, filled with "Plot" and some battles. I liked the story and its concept, though halfway through the show, it became a bit too predictable. Though I really enjoyed certain parts, I also found myself wanting to fast forward others.

Art & Sound: 7

I grouped these two together because I felt like they complimented each other in this anime. The art was pretty good and consistent throughout the show, which is important. No particular sound stood out for me, but I did feel read more

After watching the first episode, I thought that this had a lot of potential to be a good series but unfortuantly it lost it's potential as the episodes went by.

Story:
At first the story interested me, it felt quite unique in a way and parts of the story reminded me of Soul Eater at times ( for some reason ) but after a few episodes in; it seemed to abandon its interesting plot and instead turn it into more of a regular harem/ecchi anime. I actually do enjoy harems to a degree but when you have an actual story first and then abandon it read more

Story: The plot is almost a copy of the light novel series, so adaptation-wise, they followed the script. However this story seems better told in words than animation, given its almost cliche cut-and-paste nature. It's the standard "magic knight saves princess" story with an ecchi direction. Possibly enjoyable for those looking for this kind of genre but unimpressive.

Art: The art style was somewhat simple with the shading almost exclusively reserved for blushes and cleavage. It was easy on the eyes but lackluster.

Sound: 12 episode harem fantasy doesn't have dramatic soundtrack, so the main focus is OP/ED. I found Sakakibara Yui's OP read more

Seikoku no Dragonar... If there's something like a huge basketball ring in front of you, larger than the usual and there's a normal basketball ball in your front. You can't definitely miss from close range, can you? That's how I can picture a perfect analogy to the premise of Seikoku no Dragonar. But in this case, we are left wondering how Seikoku no Dragonar missed a blatant open chance for winning its potential.

Story...

I gave it a 6, honestly. Sometimes, even the most generic story can achieve better heights if given a thoroughly direction. But yet again, ruing their chances is this particular series. The story read more

Bit of a role reversal, but a "problem student" with no talent ends up summoning a human familiar or "parr" who is unique among everyone else. You can tell a relationship will be formed between the two and many other girls will fall for the main character as well.
Both of them involve an MC with "sub par" abilities assisted by a cute companion who happens to be incredibly strong. It is a Dragon in Seikoku no Dragonar and a Golem/Familiar/Doll in Unbreakable Machine Doll. In addition, the setting creates a very similar feel between the two. Unbreakable Machine Doll has a stronger harem element, but that doesn't mean it's a harem, while Seikoku no Dragonar seems to have more service in my opinion. If you like one, I'm pretty sure you'll like the other.
Both take place in a fantasy world where humans make contracts with fantasy creatures; dragons in Seikoku no Dragonar, and spirits in Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance. In both anime the main character is an boy with special powers, that makes a contract with a very special dragon/spirit; which take the form of a naked loli. Both main characters and their attend a school filled with a lot of beautiful women, of which most are tsundere and there will be a lot of fanservice.

So basically; if you replace the the dragons in Seikoku no Dragonar with spirits you get Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance; there are really way to many similarities and I can't think of any big differences.
In both series, the MC gets stuck with a dragon in the form of a girl.
In both series the main character summon their partner.
Both series contain ecchi and have school and comedy genre as well.
It has the same competative atmosphere, such as mood, emotions, and a nice slow pace! The art style is also very similar, with this anime having much better HD quality textures, with the sound of both being on parr. Both anime's having an overbearing, blonde princess character. It also has the same humor being used in both.
