Dragons, the rulers of the sky. To many people on the surface, they are a dire threat, but at the same time, a valuable source of medicine, oil, and food. There are those who hunt the dragons. They travel the skies in dragon-hunting airships. This is the story of one of those ships, the “Quin Zaza,” and its crew.

Kuutei Dragons had all the components necessary for a really interesting show but ultimately failed to put them together in a satisfying way. Airships straight out of Laputa, amazingly beautiful dragons, world travel and adventure...what could go wrong? Well, a few things.

First off, the sole motivating force of the show is just "we hunt dragons for money and because they taste good." We never get much more than that, and it's just not enough to drive twelve episodes unless you really, really like watching dragon hunting (and eating). Almost every one of those scenes, and there are a lot of them, play out identically: people read more

This is the first time I write a review. A few days ago, this show has a 6.X rate here (now 7.X) and I am very curious as I have watched ep1 when it aired all 12eps. I don't think it will be that low so I go to watch more. I eventually finished up the whole show, which doesn't always happens.

After finished this show, I think people may have two main problems to be disappointed.

First: this is a CGI show, it cannot give us detailed facial expressions with this quality, and the expressions are rather rough especially in close cut for their eyes. And read more

Like many other anime I've watched, I didn't know Drifting Dragons even existed until its anime adaptation was announced. Since I don't read manga, I do best my to judge an anime on its own merits rather than its faithfulness to the source material. So, with this mind, is Drifting Dragons worth watching? Well, let's hop on and find out, shall we?

Warning! Spoiler alert!

The series follows the airship Quin Zaza as it flies across the world, chasing dragons in order to harvest their bodies for profit. The main characters are dragon hunters, or "drakers", as the series calls them, and we follow their adventures as read more

Kuutei Dragons definitely isn't something that will be for everyone, but I ended up really loving it! I wasn't sure how I'd feel about it, at first, because of the animation style. They chose the same animation style as is used on shows like RWBY, which is a show that took a while for me to get into, specifically because of the animation style. Other actual anime that have been done this way, are not ones I've been able to stick with.

However, Kuutei Dragons only took a couple of episodes to suck me in, and align me with a character I could identify with, which read more
