Synopsis

The series takes place in an alternate world, staged mostly in the city of Eridana, whose territory is half in the Tseberun Dragon Empire, and half in the Lapetodes Seven Cities Alliance. Each half is separated by the Orielal River. In this world, special abilities called spell formulas (咒式, jushiki) exist, which are essentially chemical reactions augmented through special weapons that cause a magic spell-like effect. These special weapons are called Magic Staff weapons, and are as varied as regular weapons are. Spell formulists use these spell formulas to fight with "Beasts of Abhorrent Form," natural creatures that use spell formulas and pose a threat to humans, such as Dragons, Aions, or Enormes. The story focuses on the two main characters, Gaius Sorel and Gigina Ashley-Bufh, the only two employees of spell formulist dispatch office Ashley-Bufh & Sorel Co. They are met with a variety of requests from a variety of clients, all requiring the adept use of spell formulas.

Even after 12 episodes weekly (AND re-watching them in another full sitting if anything else made sense that links any arcs together), it made sense...only a little bit, but much of it lies in the play of politics between countries and governments, both big and small with their different ideals and realism tactics to regain ground, and that's the basis with Dance of the Dragons.

First things off, for those wondering whether to watch this series, approach with absolute warning, because this requires a FULL sitting from start to end to completely understand the gist and gestures of the story setting, I had to dig information read more

I'm unsure why this show has such poor reviews, my suspicions lie with the degradation of intellect in the world as a whole. First and foremost this is a DRAMA that means most things are going to be over the top people are going to cry all the time and the comedy is going to be drier than an 80 year old cooch. so yeah if you looking to giggle away the night make sure you can understand the nuances that dry humor has to offer!!! If you love dry humor and shows that involve you questioning morality, does the end justify the means!?!, then read more

Dances with the Dragons is certainly a badass name for a show which is both: bad and ass.

When I heard the main character is called Jerde Dolk Melios Ashley Boeuf Gigina, I assumed upon introducing himself, he would continue this with something like "friends call me Billy." but unfortunately the author of this series was completely serious when they wrote this piece of shit name monster. This petty much sums the series' biggest mistake. It tried to be serious when it was obviously so bad it could have only carried itself as a comedy or alternatively by creating content that is so over the top read more

TLDR:
Honestly, avoid Dances with the Dragons. There is simply is no serious direction and use of such a series and is just a clutter of random fights and events which clamp together to make an ugly and poorly thought out series. Unless you're sadistic and want to watch a confusing, action-oriented, thoughtless and plotless anime, or want another drop to your list, then go for it. Other than that avoid watching this.

Story [1]
This anime makes a clearly unsophisticated and pathetic attempt at an action sci-fi anime. It chucks random individuals with no backstory, read more
