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. This is where it gets interesting, as dragons neither seem to be able to breathe fire or do magic, or any of that, which I very much like.

Mixed Feelings
"Ryuu Seiki" has decent art, but the rest of the technical aspects, including animation and sound, feel flimsy. The characters are difficult to sympathize with and have contrived backstories and abilities. The plots for both episodes, which rely on these contrived backstories and abilities to progress, don't make much sense. Also, since this OVA is just two 30-minute episodes, which each tell separate stories that are only loosely tied together, events happen so quickly that it is difficult to comprehend what is going on at times. It ends on a cliched note.

There are worse OVAs out there, but this one is not particularly good; it's ...
