I've seen far more worse and better anime OVAs in the 26 years that I've watched anime. Dragon century is for me quite in the middle and since this was like other OVAs a one-shot title it was '' bearable" but as well it seemed a bit unclear if you don't watch it several times to get it. First of all part 1: 1990 AD, I was surprised by the violent content and would have LOVED IT if I was like 12 years old or something :).
Clearly there you can see how the human dominion comes to a crash course once dragons appear ...

Alright, My review is going to be very biased, as the first episode could be taken on its own, and could very well stay that way on your list without losing much.

The story is unique, something I haven't seen before in monster shows, or science fantasy or science fiction. Suddenly, a string of violent deaths occur, and dragons are discovered on earth.

Mixed Feelings
It's the present day, and suddenly dragons have been appearing in the skies! These giant creatures are soon feared and killed on sight, as they become more numerous and destructive. But a young student runs away with a dragon's egg, and raises the young dragon in an abandoned school. But this cannot last forever, and she is discovered - but at the same moment, we learn that the dragons may not be the enemies that we once thought, as another apocalyptic threat emerges.

And that's just the first half. The second episode jumps hundreds of years ...
