Straightforward and innocent Hisone Amakasu is a Self-Defense Force rookie stationed at the Air Self-Defense Force's Gifu Base. She was struggling with the fact that she sometimes hurts people unintentionally by her innocent words and decided to join the Air Self-Defense Force, hoping to maintain a certain distance from people. This decision led her to a fateful encounter which profoundly changed her life. It was the "OTF" dragon hidden in the base and it chose Hisone as his pilot. When it soared into the sky with Hisone, her fate as a dragon pilot was decided. It is said that dragons have a key to the future of the world...

Dragon Pilot: Hisone to Masotan is quite literally the season's quiet-springer, seeing it as the less popular, lesser well-known series against many heavy hitters, the sleeper surprise hit. And surprise (more) surprise, it's studio Bones leading the production, an original one at that.

Hisone to Masotan tells the story of young girls, D-Pilots to be precise, having the speciality to pilot OTF dragons that can shapeshift into normal jet fighters for military use. And as usual, you have the underdog, Amakasu, who can't seem to do anything right, and is fearful and insecure of her weaknesses, and is harsh on her words (even when she doesn't read more

I think this show is a real breath of fresh air, and as it goes on I really hope it develops into something quite special.

The first episode honestly does a perfect job of introducing you to the show, I fell in love with it right away. It gives you just enough information to let you know what’s going on, but understands that it’s ideas are extremely weird and it completely rolls with that. The following episodes thus far have mostly dealth with the strangeness of the situation and fleshed it out, to make it feel more believable in a real world setting. It completely revels read more

I believe that HisoMaso represents a coming-of-age story of the same flavor as "March Comes Like a Lion", and with an excellent team backing it up. It speaks to me of identity and self-worth. The OTFs (dragons) are great and cool, and their transformations are epic, but at this point, they are a creative vehicle (get it? vehicles?) for their pilots to learn about themselves.

The best part of HisoMaso is, without a doubt, the colorful cast. I can't express how easy it is to enter the story alongside the characters, empathizing with their relational struggles and cheering for their successes. Each seiyuu is obviously read more

Hisone to Maso-tan is an extremely unique anime so I won't cover what has already been covered in other reviews around this. Story: While unique, it isn't very creative at all, the main character is rather generic with her only defining characteristic being she is to honest in an unrealistic way. Art: It's special. Sound: The ED is really nice sung to a french song and while not visually stimulating, it is rather good. Music played during the show is rather ordinary. Character: This is for my fellow vets and people who have some interest in the military, the way people are shown make sense read more
