Synopsis

In a world of magic and monsters, Krylancelo Finrandi and his foster sister Azalea Cait-Sith were once promising students of sorcery, prodigies at the famous Tower of Fangs. But an experiment gone horribly wrong warps Azalea's appearance, trapping her in the form of a dragon.

Elders at the Tower—more interested in preserving their reputation rather than their students' lives—drive off the transformed Azalea and cover up the incident. Outraged, Krylancelo strikes out on his own, taking the new name of "Orphen" and vowing to return Azalea to her normal state.

Five years later, Orphen's quest has stalled. A chance encounter brings him face to face with Azalea again, but he still has no way to restore her body. And with a hostile group of sorcerers hunting her down, he may be running out of time. The past and present collide as Orphen tries to find how to save Azalea from their former teachers and friends.

Honestly, I can't understand all this hatred towards this series. As a Cinema graduate, I was taught to look at things objectively. This series is no masterpiece and, as I haven't watched the original, I have no grounds to compare.

The story is a bit confusing, so I don't know if the hatred stems from here. The story was very rushed - if I take into consideration the comments of those who watched the original. The script could've been better elaborated so that the story would’ve had a better flow - maintaining the interest and suspense.

It's really entertaining as a whole if you watch knowing read more

Being someone who's never watched the original 1998-1999 run of Orphen, I can definitely say that I wasn't missing out on anything much. But hearing that a soft reboot of this is greenlit for achieving monetary milestone sales of the LN (and coincidentally the 25th anniversary of the series), I decided to take a gamble on this new "refreshed" retake, but holy cow, more than making justice to the original run in the first few episodes (I'll give it that), this adaptation managed to be something worse, and not for the lack of trying.

If you'd ask me what magical fantasy series stood out in the read more

I'm just writing this review to let you know not to waste your time watching this anime.
Some other reviews weren't clear on that in my opinion.

This anime seemed to have all the good ingredients, fantasy, drama, mystery but the final product is appalling.

Characters are not only generic they are also thrown in the episodes with unknown powers and motivations. Even the main character has this problem, but when needed something "magic" will save the day.
The fights are horrible as for some reason these become a narrative to tell about the powers and characters with flash backs and all.
And the fast pace wit massive read more

This show is like spoiled milk. It's expiration date was a long time ago and consuming it will only lead to suffering.

Story:
An experiment goes terribly wrong at the famous magic school Tower of Fangs when a student named Azalea is suddenly transformed into a dragon, losing her humanity in the process. One of her closets friends Krylancelo aka Orphen finds her in that state and as she flies away he makes the decision to find a way to bring her back to her human form again no matter what.

What I just wrote happened in the first 3 minutes of the show. In just 3 minutes read more
