Twenty years prior to the story's beginning, an asteroid headed for Earth destroys Pluto. Due to Pluto's destruction, the asteroid, which is dubbed Thanatos, becomes temporarily stagnant. Now, in order to avoid Earth's impending destruction, the International Solarsystem Development Agency (ISDA) works on the "D-Project", and creates the "Dragonaut" after finding a dragon egg under the ocean. This weapon's primary purpose is to destroy the asteroid when the time comes. However, they soon find out that the asteroid is not their only threat, as powerful dragon-like creatures, which are bent on destruction, appear on Earth.

After witnessing a murder by one of the creatures, Jin Kamishina, a lonely 18-year-old boy who lost his family in a shuttle accident two years ago, gets involved in the mysteries of the dragons and becomes the chosen pilot of the Dragonaut. Helping him on his journey is Toa, a mysterious girl who saves him from falling to his death after the creature attacks him. As they get deeper into the mysteries of the dragons, they encounter new friends and enemies, and also begin to develop a closer relationship.

Dragonauts is another anime done by Gonzo. This show shows some promise, but due to certain presentation of its characters and style, it pretty much falls back quite a bit.

Story: The beginning of the show starts off with a young Kamashina Jin as he witnesses his family's deaths as their space shuttle gets blown to bits by a mysterious falling object from space. The main plot then follows an older Kamashina Jin as he gets thrust into a world of government secrets concerning "dragons", envoys sent by a living asteroid... thing called Thanatos floating around the remains of Pluto. Enter the Dragonauts, an elite team read more

This show had a lot going for it: good clean animation, a range of interesting-looking characters, a reasonable story line...and dragons (because we all love dragons...well, I do)
The problems arise because all, or at least most, of this potential disappears due to a lack of following through.
The characters reveal themselves to be pretty detestable. I said they were interesting-looking, but once they started opening their mouths, well, that's a different matter. The only ones I didn't hate or at least dislike were the ones that never really had enough airtime for me to build up a dislike for them. They were mostly flat and underdeveloped read more

The story starts off really giving you feel of a "saving the world" type of story. There's these people called Dragonauts who pilot dragons and are trying to save the world from Thanatos. However, this plot basically gets thrown to the side as the love story between Jin, a human (not a Dragonaut,) and Toa (a dragon.) The romance between them is okay in the beginning, but it quickly becomes so annoying and bothersome. Also, the huge twist in the plot that occurs like a little past half way through the series was a pretty dumb idea.

The artwork and animation is okay, but what really read more

Disappointing. One word to describe this series. The anime starts of well, drawing the attention of the viewers only to let us down in the end. Or should I say, from the second episode.

Story: Well, the idea of humans and dragons co-existing with each other really caught my attention. It manages to hold on to it, until everything went downhill, badly. The beginning gives the viewer a fresh feel of what to expect in the series, with an interesting plot to keep us entertained. It starts of with the protagonist being stuck on a space shuttle that is destine to be doomed, but the read more

Anime: Dragon Crisis!
Many similarities with Dragon Crisis except that it's a more older version , both involve dragons, the main character is attached to his dragon which is a girl. Also the dragon girl saves him when they first met.

Similar idea..
boy meets a girl who's not a human.
dargonaut and elemental gelade both are about people who turn into fighting machines...

Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
well its actually both this and r2 the main character and his best friend developed from best of friends to the worst of enemies 
reportRecommended by Gwing
Anime: Blassreiter
The female main character is in a way similar, and there is alot action in them, but the main reason might be, similarity of the character styles.

i recommend both, dragonaut has a light style, while blassreiter has dark style to it, but for you to think more than boring of these serie, you have to watch more than one episode.

Anime: Boukyaku no Senritsu
atleast the first half of Dragonaut will remind you of Melody.
1. they ride machines, that have a human form.
2. the riders have a special bond with machine
3. the protagonist's lover gets captured (first half of Dragonaut)
4. the lover is condemned to fate forced away from protagonist
5. they go in space
6. the lover has pink hair
sorry for spoilers, and Dragonaut's machines are dragons not machines, i think, they kinda look like machines though
