Seccond movie made from the Dragon nest game environment realy hit the sweat spot of mine. In contrast to the first movie, this story is centered around less characters, which given them more screen time and room to interact and develop.
Even tho, Story-vise it isnt anything outstanding and it uses all the old movie/anime clishes, it realy doesnt loose its momentum, and throw you into the seat and wont let go, until the post credit scene, which leaves you with the funny smirk on the face. This kind of storyteling realy makes it kid-friendly, even taking in consideration it gets somehow scarry at some point
of the movie.
As far as the animation goes, when i first saw the characters in the first movie, I cannot help but to think of the new "Thinkerbell" movies. Which means that for me, getting used to the animation style wasnt realy all that hard. Visuals were overall great and the action scenes were breath taking.
I realy hope, there will be more movies in this franchise. It has potential, and delivers some nice DnD action, that isnt full of the "fanservise" in the way it is in almost all new anime...
I do recommend to watch it, if you like shows with the feal of the Dungeon and Dragons.
