THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I know I have not been active in the thread of this but that's because they did a double on me and it's takes more time to do 2 than one. Anyways a glorious satisfying end to me and Maruga pawning all of the episode with not only some intimate time with Ryuuji but also freezing the runaway for the plane to slide in the following her pose before she does that is EPIC,

not to mention I want that OST track that plays at that part. However TBH seeing Onyx was like damn, when is he going to be gone for good. In general my opinion on this series is three things:
1. Cute
2. Dragon interesting as well as artifact wise interesting.
3. Action/Romance fine.


Verdict still stays at 9 on 10 due to designs in particular of this series. More later.

Love Engage <3

I didn't really like the romance part tho, since it was a bit plain.
(Is plain the right word?)

I'll give this episode a 9, but Dragon Crisis itself was only worth 8.

WTF? Are you serious? I hope someone will tell me that this is just bad April Fool joke...
No, really I know that this is action romance but to go as far as to "Love engage" and all those pink hearts? It was like sweetnes overkill...
This ending is really lame...

Everybody is friends ending, it's Shukufuku no Campanella all over again although this one is way more fitting than Campanella. The love engage was cute, awesome, and tasted like diabetes every millisecond the effect active. I dig Rose's new hairdo, she always looked better with twintails or pigtails. Maruga is quite the voice of reason as well as beautiful, kind, polite, and badass too, she nearly caused the plane to crash without using ice or even touching the plane, you don't want to make this dragon lady angry for even the slightest reason, lots of Maruga screentime made me a happy camper. I want that music in the airport scene and it needs to be in the OST badly, the episode was excellent

9/10

It's not april and it's not a joke...this is how it "ends".

I guess this is yet another generic ending to a generic anime, Meh, I don't really have much to say other than Rie is still an awesome VA and the character designs were nice.

That's about it....6/10 (It just never really got me going, I never thought it was that great)

Your typical harem ending absolutely terrible.

The episode itself wasn't very good either and seemed to ignore common physics and realism for the most part.
For instance since a plane uses trust to push itself forward instead of traction ice should not effect it's speed in the ground unless it's frozen stuck on the ice.
As i mater of fact ice should even make it easier to lift off.
Then there was also the landing since Onyx lifted the plane up it should have dropped like a brick when Onyx let go of it since it had no speed of it own yet it made a nice smooth landing.
I am probably over thinking on this and taking things to serious here since it's anime

Roze regaining her memories at the last moment was something predictable and i saw it coming from the start of this episode.
It was a bit of a mystery whose side Sappie was on tho since she seemed to be helping both sides.

All in all this Anime was a bit of a let down but that was already clear from the start.
Just that this ending made it allot worse and it's making me wonder why i watched this.

I expected more but it was a decent ending. I was hoping we'd get to see Rose in her dragon form but guess that didn't work out...I guess their will b a 2nd season since it was a pretty open ending.

Season 2 needs to be made and it better be a full 12 episodes like this or a 3-4 episode OVA at 26 minutes long or more. No awkward 8 episode second season like with Mitsudomoe.

Hey i thought it was pretty good. I appreciate that fact that he actually picked a chick that he fell in love with instead of most harems just leaving it open like the guy is unable to decide from the many hot babes all over him. I wasn't sure if he was gonna make a definite decision at the end or not but with the kiss and the holding hands u get a clear answer to who he has feelings for.

No epic battle vs Onyx....just plot enage, and poof...Onyx get's trolled

Was Kubo directing this or something?

Kinda sad....I was hoping for something...well...more....Liked the ending, but the rest was just kinda disappointing

You know this Monkey Island-insult?

"You make me wanna puke!" - "You make me think someone already did!"

I think they both are a fitting description of that episode.

I was hoping for some Giant Red Dragon vs Giant Black Dragon awesomeness or something. But nah, just a fruity giant pink heart. And his parents appearing was cool... for like the 5 seconds they were featured.. that was dumb.
Ah well. Still a good anime, hope there will be a sequel of some sort though.

Kubo's a genius compared to this. Sad but true.

Well anyway, that was... retarded.
I hope they never make another season of this. And may they burn the source material.
The only good things about this whole thing was Ai, Maruga and the OP. The rest, horrible. Especially Misaki or whatever her name was. And Rose. And Eriko. And Onyx's whole gang. Oh and, not forgetting Ryuuji. He should just go and die.
[/rant]
Now, I'll go watch that zombie stuff, and then I'll need to cleanse my mind with some Macross Frontier. At least it's likeable.

The series as a whole was somewhat enjoyable... The romance and the ending to this anime was pretty pretty cliche I have to admit. Can't say I liked it but can't say I hated it. Very very predictable is all I can describe this.

7/10 (maybe even lower)...

I don't know why but I'm getting tired of hearing Kugimiya Rie's voice, is it just me?

Soooo... They actually didn't even bother to explain one single thing about this entire show... That's quite the nerve.

And I almost threw up at that love engage bit. Cheese overload is never a good thing.

All in all, this show had nothing about plot to do and was all about random shit with random girls of random species.

6/10 almost seems too generous for this bullshit parade but hey, I'm a generous guy.

Just, never ever make any kind of continuation for this please. I'd be forced to watch it.
Pantyshots are a different matter entirely

Wtf was this shit... The amount of trash in this episode... It's incomprehensible, really. Like a Seagal movie or something. D:
I mean, seriously... The dude casually jumps out of a speeding car... The next SECOND he's ramming a chopper into the plane... Then he ends up on the plane... And the chopper falls down... And Eriko uses the chopper as a GODDAMN RAMP and jumps on the plane... Landing the car directly on Onyx... WTF MAN?! D:

Also, love engage was epic cliché garbage.

The show gets a 6/10 from me on the account of a somewhat conclusive ending.

Anyways, what were you guys expecting, this anime was HORRIBLY GENERIC from episode 1...

It never got off, it never showed any hints at greatness, this was just an OK generic anime....that's it....don't take it so hard.

I think I puked a little in my mouth. Car jumping onto the plane, Ryuuji's parents' random appearence, Rose getting her memories back because of ice cream, love engage, pink heart kills Onyx. And to top it off, random harem gathering of everyone at the school.

Overall, the anime was mostly okay, but with this ending I'm not sure what to rate it.

I actually enjoyed that episode. But I have no idea why. It was possibly the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. I'm sure the writers were taking something seriously illegal when they wrote this. And yet.... I think it managed to make it into 'So Bad, It's Good' territory. It was so gleefully over the top and it didn't care. I don't know, I think I'd actually quite look forward to another series if one was announced, just to see if they could top this episode.

I liked the ending, I mean not the episode in general, but the later part of the episode.

A few things I noticed:

I liked the Love Engage thing, the fact that they actually kissed is nice.

The parents seem pretty awesome, it was good to see them.

All the girls coming in at the end was a nice touch, it's good to see all the girls sticking around, since the cute character designs is probably one of the things I actually enjoyed about this show.

Also, they held hands at the end, that is always good. Usually nothing at all happens when people confess or become more of a couple in shows like this.

Overall, decent ending, I didn't care much for the beginning / middle of the episode.

That Love Engage was cheesy, but still liked it. I enjoyed this anime, and I'm glad that he practically proposed to Rose. That was nice.

That heart of doom was too much cheese on top of the previously added cheese of love engage.

This smells to second season... one can only hope
This was an interesting show 8/10

Meh, I don't feel sorry for people who didn't realize this was going to be a cheesy ending. After watching a few episodes you should of known how this show would play out. Anyways I enjoyed it, I wanted more action then one sword throw from the dad XD I wanted I guess just a bit more of a fight. Favorite scene Aoi saving the wrong person and then hopping in Ryujis lap.

I am actually relieved that this show is over. I rolled my eyes through almost all of this episode. That "Love Engage" was absolutely ridiculous...and the final classroom scene was just stupid. *smh*

This show started off really good and then somewhere along the way it just got all BUSTED up and went REALLY lame. The only reason I stuck with it was because I'd made it more than halfway through and was determined to see it through till the end.

I gave it a 6/10. It would have been a 5, but I liked the animation.

The only thing I'll miss about this show is the ED.

Nice, syrupy-happy finale. Talk about having your cake and eating it too. Ryuji chooses Rose yet all the girls are still around. Guess it qualifies for harem end. But who wasn't in that classroom in the end? I'm sure Onyx was there too in vapor form lol. Eriko in the uni gave me a chuckle though. Anyways, it was fairly enjoyable so long as you don't dwell on it too much.

Instead of going off about the lame "power-of-love-destroys-all-evil-in-the-universe" ending, I'll instead point out a lesser talked about issue with the series.

Dragon Crisis tried to do too much within it's short span of 12 episodes. Every episode felt like it was trying to cover an entire novel in 25 minutes. New characters were constantly introduced, then quickly thrown to the wayside to make way for another character to make their debut or have a cheesy romance scene with Ryuji. Still, I know these things aren't meant to be taken seriously, and It's probably my fault for expecting something new.

In the end, I'm sure this series will have an OVA, picture drama, or perhaps even a sequel. The last episode sets that up in the most unsubtle way imaginable, with the main Character's Friend practically yelling: "Hey! What's up with this mysterious new teacher character?!"

And if such a thing comes to exist, I probably won't be able to help myself from watching it.

So we all know that the love engage crap happened, and a big heart came out, and Onyx got killed. What the hell would happen if the two boned? I mean come on, if a little kiss could OBLITERATE a fricken POWERFUL GIANT BLACK DRAGON, then if they boned, would all the fricken evil on the planet be obliterated? Do they hold that power in their sexual organs alone? If I were him, then for the name of justice, I would have sex with rose every damn day.

I will agree with you on this one, it seemed that way too but sometimes dragging out characters too long sucks also in terms of "I am too used to that character" or "Character becomes annoying" for example I am sure not a lot of people would tolerate Misaki to show up every 2 episodes in a 24 episode series. Regardless it would be nice to have some characters come back for a little in harmony of making the story progress.

No well, I think the point was love obliterates evil since Onyx had nothing but power gaining ambitions there was no love in him so he was demoleculized because Ryuuji/Rose's love particles disintegrated Onyx. The fact that he was a dark Dragon already meant he was evil and going to remain. Also a reason why he always had money since easy money = sometimes using dirty/evil ways in obtaining it. Anyways it was cheesy but it to demonstrate love erases evil. I am not so sure what sex would have as a power but cleaning up cities of evil vermin seems plausible to me. Of course you would have to take in consideration that a KO from orgasm for both Ryuuji and Rose would be inevitable to say the least.

If this episode is really the last one, the ending sort of sucked and was a bit lame. But if a second season/sequel does show up, it's not a bad season ender... They left out too many things, really hope they make a second season.
