I also include a briew review of Blue Dragon: Tenkai no Shichi Ryuu at the end end of this review.
The story is good it's Dragon Ball meet Digimons. Because our heroes are kids that control monsters., our heroes go from town to town to get closer to the enemies's headquarter. and gather allies. pretty standart. 6
Th story has a very good twist that you will enjoy( can't tell because it's a spoiler. I suggest you keep watching it till the end. 7
It's Akira Toriyama's work so you won't be dissapointed, the characters and backgrounds are very rich and detailed. 8
The females who are older than 18 have curves and don't look like a 14 yearl old. because of this i regard the art as better than dragon ball. 8
the males areall deformed , and they like 14 year old. don't expect to see a cool character like piccolo or cell 5
one way to enjoy this, is to ignore squables between jiro and shu.5
I really enjoy the humor, Marumaro really does his job as a comic relief 8
There is no harem , it's a plus point 6
I lke the humor, the twist and the art work despite of some negative aspects 6
If you like this anime, don't bother watching Blue Dragon: Tenkai no Shichi Ryuu because it's a dissapointment. it's full of filler episodes, it even has a furmula. one episode it continues with the main story, the next one is a filler episode.
There is also less actions and deals primarily with the philoshopy of the characters.
´I DON´T WANT TO LET YOU GO´ the end song of this serie´s and after watching this i REALLY DIN´T wanted to let this anime go!!!!!!! personally i had soo much fun watching it and a big laugh. Seemed that the works inspired by dbz and final fantasy influences was not in vain, at least for fans of the genre´s. The ONLY minor thing about it was the fast build-up of the charachters at 1till episode 8 or so, and some behavior the charachters have, but as the serie progresses it leaves it more to the background. I had no idea that a entertaining serie´s like this ended with such a dark storyline wich came as a pleasant suprise( i mean really...kids were involved man!!!!!)At first come´s the fantasy dialogue of the creation of darkness,light and the creation of men , then the myth of the 7 Knights of magic, and their heroic deeds, that in the blue dragons world is written down in a book called the EXTRA SEVEN.From there on the story starts with our protagonists that under go journey. Artwise its all VERY CLEAR: nuff said. in the middle there is like good comedy moments a la DBZ wich threw me on the floor, i mean the fun was definetly embedded to do its job. For all the charachters there is a story from their side to tell, from the heroes to the villains till the villagers, but not too complicated.
Also a very good job done on the cgi tecniques and millitairy shipmodeling.
i hope that the sequel keeps the same things up as this one cuz it was worth the watch read more
At first glance they probably don't look like they have anything in common but both have similar characters
two boys who both have incredible power in the form of a beast in them that they didn't know about. They learn about their power due to another intervention whose interested in helping them become stronger and helping them learn how to control the power. Both shu and naruto interest in becoming stronger leads them to find a rival in their team mate. jiro and sasuke both have a painful past that motivates them to fight so the can gain revenge.
If you'd seen Dragon Ball, it's highly suggested to watch Blue Dragon because the characters as the history line is very alike, including the animation and the use of the characters, you with find it almost as if they were the same but in diferent anime, with a diferent develop.
Anyway, it is a diferent universe, with a diferent end.
But a good history they made...i liked it a lot, in some parts.
Both involve using monsters to fight and have collectable card games and such.
also both based on video games.
Though blue dragon has a more interesting story (not vastly)
and reaches some sort of conclusion rather then just dragging it on and on
for many years.
It also has characters designs by the man who made dragonball
and music from the composer of final fantasy games which should hopefully get you interested
Both have some type of beasts, one has digital monsters as trusty side kicks, one has a shadow beast but both beasts are combat worthy yet friendly with a sense of humor
Both have a simple (not so simple if you watch them but...) light vs darkness scenario
Both have a "Friendship is power" feel to them
Both have epic feel battles and great finales
Both make the finales very very "all hope is lost" in one way or another
