Lu Mingfei is a typical high school kid getting ready to graduate. That is, until he receives an acceptance letter from Cassell College, a school he didn’t even apply to. Upon arrival, Lu learns that the school’s mission is simple: protect humanity from dragons. Caught in the midst of the age-old conflict, Lu soon uncovers the grim truth behind humanity’s war against the dragon race.

This is truly an under-rated anime. It's just sad that people assume that Chinese animes lack ideas and animations. Literally, This anime has the best animation and by far the best score which includes it's opening theme composed by none other than Hiroyuki Sawano.

I truly loved this anime. This anime was overall perfect, but one thing it lacked was a bit of "what's going on here" scenes. One moment, You are in the scene you are enjoying and than at next, you are being showed something else, of course we would understand it later on in the show but this wouldn't be that much ...

It's not awful, just ok...
The animation is nice, the music is nice, the opening slaps. There are some funny jokes in the beginning, but their timing becomes worse and worse every episode, the narrative, the characters become more boring. The battle scenes are ruined by monotonous oh so panicked explanations of details. The last four-five episodes are awfully dragged out and full of flashbacks to previous episodes. The MC could be very interesting, but he gets his op powers just because, with no real growth, while still whining and being dumb. His personality is inconsistent, one moment he cool like a cucumber, the other he ...

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

-I finished it just to finish it, not because I liked it.
-The protagonist must have died at the beginning.
-Dapple fell like a pain in my ass.
- 3 out of 10.
Is the story unique? If it was predictable, did you enjoy it anyway because you like this genre/setting?
A: yes, no.
Do you think the art style is appropriate for the story?
