ok, first of all i gave this OVA a 10 across the board because there was no flaws with it. This OVA does not take place after or before the main story line. it is simply a gathering of all the characters, even those who didn't make it to the end. The point of this OVA was purely entertainment.
in the first half of the OVA your watching a ISDA film with all the main characters in a completely different role then what they had in the anime. Toa's role was closest to her original one being the main female character in love with the
main male character, which happens to be howling star in the film. but after that the OVA pics up with every one in a deserted nursing home and trapped inside by a fierce thunder storm which sends a bolt of lighting into an abandoned ISDA research facility and activates a failed experiment with CSS which dont harm the dragons, but instead does one of two things, either amplifies an existing characteristic of there personality, or makes them a 180 degree of there former selfs.
so if you want to see the cast in a pointless but funny and perverted as hell mini episode then watch it, for all you perverted toa fans you'll love the out going, kinky and neko version of toa.
This Special has nothing to do with the other storyline, but is hilarious and features all the main characters from the actual story.
The first is a movie trailer which starts off the hilarity, with Howling Star as the hero at a not-so-normal high school.
The second is when the Dragonauts take a vacation on an island where the dragons' personalities are reversed.
Story: Probably one of the best side stories I've seen in a while. The best thing about it: hearing Amadeus telling off Seiglinde. Very fun!
Art: Still, as amazing as the original series.
Sound: Probably better than the series. For example, seeing Machina being her opposite. Oh, and Widow laughing. Heehee
Character: Amazing characters. Even more amazing as their opposites
Enjoyment: Can you say Perfect 10?
Overall: A big tear reliever after the touching storyline. This one will still bring you to tears, just not sad ones, but ones from laughing so hard.
An extra fanservice episode and hopefully some extra focus on Toa? Well, keep dreaming. Dragonaut - The Resonance Special is probably one of the worthless special episode ever.
The plot is non-existant, it starts off with some random scenes. The opening song appeared like 8 minutes after the start and after that it moves to another random plot. The art, sound and characters pretty remained the same, nothing too good. Overall it's horrible, it's the worst thing you can get, no plot and no fanservice.
Take all the characters, throw them in a room, completely change their interpersonal relationships, and have them make no contributions to the overall Dragonaut universe... totally pointless waste of time.
