pretty sure the only thing Urobochi is behind is his own character and part of the setting. as i under stand it. this was originally conceived when a bunch of dudes several of which were authors of well known anime were sitting around making role play characters, made an RP game with said characters then handed all the material to someone else to make a light novel and now this anime adaptation.

I had perhaps too many expectations for this TV series, partly I'm disappointed, I have seen other series with a better start, here the narrative is not convinced me at all. In terms of designs I can not even say that I met, animations average. I guess I'll wait for the other episodes make me an idea more thoroughly reviewing again even this episode.

Correct.

Also if anyone remembers Lodoss war, they will know how the worldbuilding is handled(since same people built Chaos Dragon setting) - the story would focus on a limited cast members, with everyone else being expendable and with viewer being dropped into into the middle of things as stuff gets somewhat explained via the character interactions.
If the adaptation does a good job, the viewers should get a decent grasp at the setting as the story goes on.

It is hectic and strange for newcomers but for anyone who remembers that franchise this is already quite a nostalgia trip. That said YES it IS a typical high-fantasy setting(as to be expected since that was what lodoss was too), but what should sell it as it goes on is the character decisions and paths various characters take.

Wow... I've got low standards and that was still really bad. I loved this particular gem:

MC>"If I make the pact, then I can save Mashiro?"
Dragon>"Sure, if that's what you want."
MC>"I want to change this world!"
Dragon>"Your wish has been heard."
Mashiro>"Am I going to die?"
MC>"That's definitely not going to--"
Dragon>"Kill her."
MC>"What?"
Dragon>"Sacrifice Mashiro. Stab her in the back. Until she is dead."
Mashiro>"This is what the legend told us would happen."


So basically, pacifist kid decides to go out wearing a weapon when he should know that it is illegal, then makes a pact with the dragon when he should already know (via the legends) that doing so means sacrificing those closest to him. And he does it in order to try and save the girl that he should know he'd have to end up sacrificing. This comes as zero shock to the girl, herself, because apparently unlike our idiot MC she actually paid attention in class.


^My thoughts exactly. At least they stayed faithful to the title. It's literally Chaos. Lel

This wasn't bad.

I was pretty surprised when he had to stab Mashiro, and I think people need to realize that he never said he'd be forming a pact with the dragon. All he said was that he wanted to save Mashiro and, afterwards, change the world; the dragon seemed to treat the latter as his 'wish' while ignoring the former, thus forcing him to kill his friend. I really enjoyed the music at that moment.

Ibuki, while still not too good a character, is much more interesting than people on this forum make him out to be. While it was slighty rushed, we got to see part of (hopefully) his backstory and why he's opposed to violence and has been avoiding the position of king so tenaciously. Him suddenly taking the offensive makes sense, since we've seen how he lost control of his body once he presented his wish to the dragon.

They showed the Kouran's brutality and the terrible state of the country fairly well.

Most of the episode was fine in terms of animation and OST, and I'm glad there's no censorship since that's always a good thing.

That said, I have several complaints. I won't need to expand on them since there's nothing I need to justify:
First, I don't really like the character designs, even if I don't mind them that much. They seem too childish and optimistic (not personality-wise) for such a bloody and tragic setting, but as I've said before, I can handle them fine. The only one that noticeably bothers me is the dragon's, since the usage of CGIs for characters like that honestly irks me.

The fight between Ibuki and the fat dude was really meh. It degraded the ham shounen moment it was supposed to be, at least to me. o;

His voice actor/actress idk makes him sound like a wimp. It's annoying, because we've seen that he doesn't fight out of choice, and that the only thing he's scared of is war breaking out again. Someone with a heavier, if only slightly, voice, would have done much better imo.

The first few minutes were pretty generic and Urobutcher's genderbent char going 'kowai kowai' seemed really fucking forced. I mean, I did hear that he just made an edgy fucker who was bad for the game when they were playing, but if you're going to change the character don't use a template that we've seen THIS many times before. Or, y'know, at least do it right. There also shouldn't have been any real reason for the genderbending.

I did say the animation and OST were fine, but, and this applies more to the animation part, I thought it would be better. Most action scenes we've seen in this episode were pretty awkward, what with soldiers thrusting spears at the air and hitting swords with the wood. I guess Silver Link is spending most of the budget on pedobait ilya or something. Meh.

One thing that really degraded the quality of the episode was the way they rushed the exposition. The way they used some random bunch of text in the middle of the episode was laughable. It's a real shame they did that, because the pacing was the main issue with this episode from what I remember.

kurosaki_kabuto said:
the execution was terrible.
The only decent piece of exposition was literally a bulk of text at the half point. The characters feel as plastic as possible and the same goes for the story (or as much as may be understood of it from this episode) since the episode was so terribly paced. It seemed to want to introduce everything lightly to try and hint at a complex and rich world with very diverse characters but failed completely and ended up a jumbled mess. Did we really need that many short scenes featuring random characters saying random sentences that we can't understand yet? Why not prioritize the introduction of a group? They should have focused merely on the red-eyed kid, presenting him and his surroundings more smoothly and slowly, using them to dish out exposition little by little. Instead it's just a chaotic mess.
Jesus Christ. You don't see something with potential being this ruined by a messy and amateurish execution every day. I'll still watch one more episode, but if this is the rule and not the exception, that will be the last one.


I agree with that as well. While foreshadowing one or two things (like showing Nasu's character and ending it there) would've been fine and probably better for the show, stuffing in so many things into it kinda hurt. The part where they saw the woman get shot, picked up the infant and then suddenly faced off against the fat guy with the infant lolgone was a HUGE mess, as (I think) ChickenFry stated before.

ChickenFry said:
You seem to forget one major complain: The dead of the girl at the end holds zero weight that it becomes a cheap drama.

Ok, we have an ensemble cast. But skipping to ramdom scenes everywhere means less time for the MC group. We don't know how their relationships are. We don't know how much the MC cares for the girl, how much the girl means for the MC.

About the ensemble cast, this has much to learn from Drrrr for the introductory episode.


THAT TOO AIGHT
I saw your reply to that @ KamiCity, but the fact that she was the catalyst is exactly why you need to see how much she means to Ibuki; if this contract forces him to lose someone he cares so much about so easily, both the weight of the contract itself and the intensity of the scene are increased. As it was in the episode, you could only assume things and I'm sure you know it's not the same thing.

gdi narita shoulda been the game master o;o;o;

I know this was based on a tabletop RPG, but I think it would've been better if they discussed each scene with the players, or writers if you want, and actually changed some things up a bit. Emphasis on 'a bit', since the point is still seeing what came out of their RPG game.

Overall, and I'll say it again, this wasn't bad. It was even above average to me, although that's probably just because I REALLY hope this gets as good as I wanted it to be so I disregard most of my issues with the episode. Still, it's far from what I'd initially expected.

I'd like that too. But they should try harder to make us care about them first.
"A king… The king must be greedier than any other. He must laugh louder and rage harder. He must exemplify the extreme of all things, good and evil. That is why his retainers envy and adore him. And why the flames of aspiration, to be as the king is, can burn within his people." - The King of Conquerors

Well that was cheesy and hideous to look at, not to mention you know you can't do worldbuilding for shit if you rely on bad dialogue and eyecatches to do all the work. No thanks. Narita Nasu and Butchi can keep their tabletop adventures to themselves.

Dreadful show, with some of the worst dialogue and story I've come across. Ibuki has been completely idiot and is clueless so far. This is going to be just like Shinji from Eva where the main character doesn't know what's going on. Sacrifices are being done left and right for his sake, and he selfishly ignores it. He's a complete ego maniac, and there is no ay the show can redeem what he's done here.
Mashiro's fate was unfortunate, but on the plus side she won't be in this show any longer - maker he an instant contender for my favorite character. The only person so far with the brains to know when to jump a sinking ship.

Animation is even worse than I expected. If you've seen more than 5 anime in the last 10 years, then this show won't surprise you in any way. Already one episode in, and they already seem to be out of money and cutting corners.

As I said before, the dialogue is appalling. Who honestly wrote these lines and thought they flowed in any way? Garbage writing, I couldn't believe what I was reading half the time.
The subs are okay, at least. They did what they could.

Overall, I have no idea why this is called "Chaos Dragon". They must be trying to draw in DragonBall Z fans who mistake this for the new series - they seem to think we're all as stupid as Ibuki. This show tries to pretend it's as profound as Berserk, but besides the terrible animation they have nothing in common.

The 1st episode felt like one of the top anime in this season. Thats fight and powerup at the end was good. Also, the females look so cute

That was interesting enough, especially the music. if it keeps up like this, then it will probably become one of my favourite OST like that of Kara No Kyoukai and Fate/Zero. I like the overall art style, and was even more interested when seeing the artists behind it.. but to be honest, I don't like the eyes, which annoys me, as everything else is great.

Wow, this was really bad. They forced tons of half-finished concepts upon the viewer with horrible pacing and added bad character design, production values and lack of talent in general on top of it.

As tommy said before me, the exposition in the middle was by far the most hilarious thing. "Hey, let us dump 2 pages of bad exposition in the eyecatch!"
Fight scenes looked extremely bad, the scarifice of the shrine maiden loli could not really work as she should be out of range for the scimitar, etc. Overall, this is already a convoluted, badly paced mess with tons of holes.

..as expected of Nasu and the Butcher, these talentless hacks.

"Kill animation to save exposition"

Chaos Dragon, now with edge and predictable deaths to satisfy your otaku wet dreams.
Watch the episode now for:
Exposition, lots of it. Hope you can read 200 words in five seconds, because you'll need it.
Dragons! IN CG AND ALL DIFFERENT COLOURS!
Predictable deaths. TO POWER THE EDGE.
Saving the world as a new and unique motivation.
A lack of animation. It was replaced by an essay in the middle.
SHOUTING AND SCREAMING, BECAUSE THE WORLD IS UNFAIR AND ONLY YOU CAN CHANGE IT!!
EPIC MUSIC
New and improved designs that were found in the Nasu recycle bin!

Exposition/10

The fact that this anime is already getting low scores shows how stupid and blind anime fans are.

With fantasy series like this and Owari No Seraph, a dawn of a new generation for anime may be beginning. Harem Anime series is slowly becoming obsolete rather than a must watch.

This anime will another be an unrated gem in the masses of crap anime. The fans criticizing this anime are also the same fans who predicted Expelled in Paradise will be crap. Boy, how wrong they are...

The setting alone is unique and the animation is very good, even better than last season's awful unlimited blade works. Let's remember guys, the creators of this anime is the industry's best. Remember that anime called...Madoka? Does Fate/Stay VN ring a bell?

Playing the Tabletop/Book game the anime is based on (I hope a English Kickstarter will come soon), this was the first time i ever played one and it was epic...

Has a scenario where Mashiro was revived as a enemy...

It wasn't that bad of an episode, I really enjoyed the second half and especially the part where he used the dragon's power. The art is good even though some character designs are bad and most of the outfits are just ridiculous. I'm hoping it'll get better from here on out.

Oh another fantasy anime huh? This Summer (2015) Really got a lot of it huh? And it's about Dragons huh?.
What?! War had already started in the very first episode?!! Can't they just make it for Episode 2?!!!
And the worst thing I saw a pretty girl again as a fucking sacrifice for the protagonist to take action?!
Mashiro's intro was sexy and she just died? Fucking damn it!!
I guess since the Prologue says it that Ibuki needs to kill for what ever fuck he needs to protect.
Well I guess I should prepare expect more likable characters to die!
The Animation and OST was good. And I want to hear and watch it's proper OP and ED in the next episode next week.

There isn't really a point in blaming Nasu/Butcher/Narita for this. They literally each made a character (Nasu made two, but yeah), listened to the scenarios they were presented with and declared what their characters would do in each of them. As I said already, this anime would've been miles better had they actually discussed the story with the writers/players themselves while producing it.

Besides, Nasu's and Narita's characters are the best two (even though they changed Swallow's design for some reason. I at least hope they didn't touch his curse, but I'm worried since he doesn't have the 5 swords on his back nor the black forearms).

I don't think anime becomes better by going form pleasing the harem crowd to pleasing the fujoshi crowd.

There is no anime called Expelled in Paradise, so for being a gem it is kind of funny you don't even know its name.

Yeah and neither did the setting or rules in it, or how poorly it was executed, they only have the characters they created.

Bad designs, bad art (like a poor man's Fate), rushed story, boring characters so far. I really could not care less about what's going on, and zoned out when I should have been reading subtitles. I also really hate the MC.

I'm only sticking with it because I have a hunch that more people will kick the bucket by the way that they crossed out Mashiro among the cast.

EDIT: Nevermind, watched more of the anime airing this season and realized life is too short to watch a show just to see people die, and also that this is worse than I thought by comparison. Dropped.

Not sure why people care that much about animation or CG, does that have much impact on enjoyment ?! I don't see any difference between this or other anime airing in this season. All look fine to me.

1st was so great, one of the best in this season in my opinion. Far better than what I expected.

Most of these anime that people call edgy are most enjoyable and entertaining types of anime.

That sacrifice and powerup with decent OST is very entertaining. I watched that scene several times. I like these stuff, it reminds of the 1st episode of attack on titan and Owari no Seraph

How can some tell bad design from good design ?! The character design look fine to me, and their faces look so cute.

Rushed story ?! It did not feel rushed to me. Even if it is rushed, the anime is still entertaining.

Boring characters ?! They weren't boring to me, and they look so cute.

The blood and death was nice, but i wouldn't call this series anything special yet. But i'll stick around to see how things progress, as long as Ibuki loses that stupid hat.

What the heck did I just watch... seriously...

Plot itself is very interesting, at least for someone who loves fantasy setting, but execution just sucks, in my opinion.

I mean, the cast is insane, but seems like adaptation is just not right or something...

This show is below average but the hate for it is almost comical. Is someone major or popular working on this? I'll check after this post but some of the comments I'm seeing are ridiculous. One guy is complaining about the main character from one episode? lol

example 1


Dreadful show, with some of the worst dialogue and story I've come across. Ibuki has been completely idiot and is clueless so far. This is going to be just like Shinji from Eva where the main character doesn't know what's going on. Sacrifices are being done left and right for his sake, and he selfishly ignores it. He's a complete ego maniac, and there is no ay the show can redeem what he's done here.


Also lol @ complaining about exposition, like jesus christ. Exposition from the first episode of an anime? SAY IT AINT SO.

That was a surprisingly great first episode. It felt rushed but I enjoyed it. This has really nice presentation.

Definitely got an Akame ga Kill vibe from this. There's a lot of despair and it's clear many will die.

I think too much stuff was going on, because it's clear they wanted to end the first episode there.

I like how the power isn't something he can tap into and use at any moment with no repercussions. Having that kind of power requires sacrifice, and I think that's an interesting dynamic in a genre where most MC's are overpowered.

Hopefully it slows down bit and we get more time to process what's going on.

I'm only attracted to this show because of the characters by Nasu and Urobutcher. If I didn't have that knowledge, I would think this show was utter crap. I do like that they didn't shy from the gore, but hopefully the show gets a bit more interesting. Seems like a Battle Royale is going to happen between all the different characters.

It is based on a D&D style game that some major authors decided to sit around and play, and someone had the idea to make a series out of it. Characters were created by Kinoko Nasu (Fate Series, Kara No Kyoukai), Urobuchi (Medoka Magica, Psycho Pass), Iduki Kougyoku (Mimizuku to Yoru no Ou), Ryohgo Narita (Durarara!!), and a fifth one I don't remember.... so it's got some pretty big names attached to the characters and concept at least. Idk who's actually working on the anime though.

I don't think this is as bad, as what most people would say, but I think it's not that strong either. To me this mostly feel 'meh'. But I do like the soundtrack.
