Here be dragons!

One thing can always be certain when it comes to anime these days, and that's the inclusion of at least show about anthropomorphised creatures of some sort every season. Many people will already be familiar with humanoid cats, foxes, dogs, etc, and with the "popularity" of the types of anime that normally include such characters, it's somewhat surprising to find dragons thrown into the mix.

Now this isn't a new thing, especially as these giant fire breathing lizards have appeared in works of fiction for many, many years (and it's even longer when we start talking mythology - but we won't go there). From read more

Well, I must say, while this anime isn't a masterpiece I feel it deserves better than it's getting. Also... this is going to be my first review so forgive me if it's not that great XD.

First things first, I'm going to try to keep this short. Second, I will refrain from any spoilers. Third... I loved this anime. While the situations and characters may not be the most original, they work, and because of this they make a truly enjoyable viewing experience.

Story 6/10
It's been mentioned by other reviewers and I'm going to mention it again, If you want explanations and depth this is not your read more

Dragon Crisis! is a below average to borderline horrible action harem anime that has been done dozens of times before, and done much better. I continue to be perplexed why tripe like this continues to sell and gets made into anime. And I thought Hollywood had hit the bottom of the barrel when it comes to creativity and originality.

The story concept for Dragon Crisis! has been repeated ad nauseum. An ordinary school boy with average looks and the personality of an anvil is suddenly thrust into a secret world of the supernatural including, as the title suggests, dragons. Of course read more

Ah, Dragon Crisis. The title is a little strange considering the fact that the phrase itself is only used once in the series, and it's never really explained when mentioned. For me to find an anime about anthropomorphic human-like people usually means that I'll watch it, to some extent. Whatever the case, onto the review.

Story (6.47/10): Story...isn't exactly Dragon Crisis's strong suit. The beginning is very Angel Beats-esque, where the audience, and the main character are thrown into these set of circumstances without any explanation whatsoever for the sake of moving the plot. Usually, unless there's the mystery element to read more

Both of these shows are about artifacts. Dragon Crisis! has them in a more positive light, while C³ has them in a darker light. But some of the objects actually have a life of their own.
Like many have pointed out, a semi-inept boy brought into fighting a great bad organization via a Tsundere girl with fire powers (both played by Rie Kugimiya).

Additionally, Yoshida (SnS) is very similar to Misaki Etō (DC). A shy girl in the boy's class who has some level of attraction she can't seem to get across.

*IMHO, Shana is the better of the two series... watch it. Especially if you like the character of Rose.
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.
In both series, the MC gets stuck with a dragon in the form of a girl.

Both lead female characters have what you called a "LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT" with the male lead characters.

Both male leads pledge to protect the female lead.

Both have school, harem, magic and supernatural genres.

Both have childhood friends whom were placed on the sidelines.

Both male leads have special abilities.

Both lead characters together with their female partners were compelled to join in a secret organization.

Both were a pseudo harem.


The female lead in the other anime is a dragon while in the other one is a vampire.

The secret organization the characters were in, differ, because one organization is more on scientific and functions like a club, while in the other one, the organization is a "TOP Secret" one where it's authority goes way beyond the government's control.

The childhood friend in one anime is shy, clumsy and doesn't do anything, in the other, the childhood friend there is not to be trifle with......not just yet, maybe, when she reaches her boiling point, in fact she may have some kind of sinister going.

When it comes to the male lead's special ability, one was endowed with it when he met the female lead as a child, while the other one has his special ability with the knife (or dagger) that he welds.

One has mystery as it's extra genre, whiled the other has ecchi and vampire as it's extra genre.

The male lead in DC has his cousin and some of his harem as his side kick while in ITKU the male lead was drafted to be a reluctant slave by the student council president who welds great power and influence.
Both series have a male character who "finds" the female character. The girls cannot speak much initially (aside from names) or have much knowledge, but they learn more and more as time goes on. They both also have romance in them.
