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.

This story is about a boy who survived a shuttle accident that was caused by creatures known as dragons killing his family and how he came to love the dragon that caused the accident and their attempt to change the world.

The story is unique to some extent, but it has the typical save the world theme in a futuristic soceity where doom is approaching. It emphasizes on the meaning of sestiny and fate and how they differ, where one can be changed while the other cannot. It is somewhat interesting but i just didnt feel compelled to like it that much.

The art was quite good, ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

It's a story as old as time, a boy falls in love with a girl, who then turns out to be a dragon spaceship but he decides to still fuck the said spaceship.

Anyways, story is crap, characters are crap and no amount of alcohol will make this any close to being watchable. it is an absurd setting and honestly is the most idiotic nonsense of an anime ever.

The female protagonist here killed the male protagonist's family for fun while the "mother" wants to destroy the earth. The music in this anime isn't well though out and the characters are moronic and annoying. The only hope ...
