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.
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
of it. To my embarrassment I kind purchased all teh PS2 /PS3 / Nintendo/ and X-box games for Blue Dragon. I don't even own a X-box.
´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
The game was a lot better - but it did come first - and if it followed the same plot as the game I would give it a 10.
The characters were very childish (they're like 12 in the anime and 16 in the game or something) and sometimes they were unbearable - Bouquet (the hippo girl) was incredibly frustrating and the primary reason why the character score is a 4. Her only use is in the second season and even then she's still annoying and pretty much useless.
I do however absolutely love the plot and the whole shadow concept, words can't describe how
unique and amazing it is.
They are fiery, majestic, powerful, towering beasts... and they are here to make you shiver in your socks! Here's a list of the 15 most epic anime dragons in existence, sure to scare you and bring you a bit of nostalgia at the same time.
