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 read more

This anime is one of my childhood animes.
I can't believe I'm writing a review on it today.
What can I say. I'm a big fan of Blue Dragon. Pretended I had a shadow of my own.
I mean who wouldn't after wacthing this epic storyline and shit?!
For me it was story. Awesome effects. Awesome characterization.
but then again it had its faults here and there. Too much fan-service.
and then it was a bit too predictable and didn't really have that pinch of suspense.
Well i suppose It was quite the entertainment.
I was around 12 when I watched this on Cartoon Network and I didn't miss a single episode read more

´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 read more

One of those shows you wouldn't believe can be so good in certain moments but also so predictable and... you know, it's kind of a trope that's been done outright so many times now.

But when I watched it back then I was quite pleased with the way it ran; from start to end I thought this was a decent thing one could begin with anime but at the same time it's not aged well at all. The animations don't look so bad, neither the choreography but all in all it's a pretty classic Hero's Journey which honestly has been done so many times nowadays in read more
