This is one of the best donghua I have seen and it deserves to be more popular than it currently is.

Story: The protagonist, Lu Mingfei is a nerd loser who spends most of his time playing Starcraft. He's content to spend the rest of his life in mediocrity, until one day an event happens that causes him to accept enrollment at Cassell College, a school where they train soldiers with superpowers to fight in a war between dragons and humans.

It's not awful, just ok...
The animation is nice, the music is nice, the opening slaps.

It was difficult for me to finish this anime because of how stupid the protagonist is.
-Too cowardly.

A: yes, no.
Do you think the art style is appropriate for the story?
