In the Media Factory fan event "Bunko J Natsu no Gakuensai 2013" held in Akihabara today, it was announced that five light novels will be adapted into anime. One of them is "Seikoku no Dragonar." The light novel started in June 2010 and so far 13 volumes have been published.

Seikoku no Dragonar on MAL

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Not bad I guess... We'll see.

Eh.. Okay I guess, but I'm not too fond of its manga. Maybe LN different but it can't be that different.

I'm happy.

The LN on BT and the manga aren't TL'd far enough yet, so I hope this anime can get my hopes up of more giant dragon riding and things. We shall see!

Only because you lack the facility to tell the differences and so you lump them up into "much the same thing".

Because its opinion I formed and the whole point of stating an opinion is to state an opinion based on the factual evidence. People are bound to not like stuff and say that they do not like or despise stuff, that's basis of free speech and free will every single individual shares. We are not living in a world where censorship is an option, so people are bound to have opinions that are not worshiping the topic on hand.

So I am too shallow to GET how awesome shallow stuff is?


Higashi_no_Kaze said:

Hell I am not even sure dragons are plus, considering just how common something dragon-related is in anime/manga stuff. I wish one day someone would decide to use something ELSE instead of dragons (medieval world full of phoenixes? gargoyles?). I know dragon is a strong symbol in eastern cultures, but come ON...

And yeah. ecchi stuff is disturbing to say the least. Here I thought mainstream anime is slowly moving away from sexism, oh well.

Overall this smells like next Aesthetica.

Who are censoring? But don't you forget, free speech also means the possibility of your opinions being challenged or countered. And a lot can depend on how you phrase your opinions. If you want to go mean and harsh, then just don't complain (and hide behind "freedom of speech") when people call you out on how you express your opinions.

Probably. And you are surely too shallow to realize that freedom of speech does not mean nobody can challenge what and how you said things.

Not saying dragons are something ultra creative, but they are just way more awesome than most other mythical creatures (imo). Not that I wouldn't enjoy some gargoyle or phoenix appearances too, but dragons are still a plus for me.
And regarding the ecchi, it seems to be very popular in most lightnovels, at least 4 of 5 of the announced ones have an ecchi tag. For me that is unfortunate, but looking at the history of LN adaptions I'm sure they're gonna be popular enough.

When I saw the name Dragonar I admit I jumped out of my seat with my first thought being something related to this but alas it's another part of the light novel adaptation news wave. The premise sounds pretty hilarious though.

oh my gods. I KNEW it sounded familiar.

I would love to see a remake of that with present day's budget, especially in current times when everyone tries to fill in Gundam shoes(due to Sunrise failing spectacularly now). A reimagination of that would have an actual chance.

Sounds like ZnT reversed with Dragon Crisis combined. Other than mechas dragons always interested me and a harem-echhi to add on top of that. Let's hope this turns out well.

Something similar came across my mind too. Sadly i only know them from SRW and ACE games as it's pretty hard to find the older series now-a days.

I prefer the illustration style in the LN better but then it is still too early to say how good the character design is until we see the actual animation.

tbh I prefer this far more than the LN illustration but that mostly has to do with the guy up front more than anything. Going to still need to see how it'll actually look animated, though.

Really? I felt like the main character looked like a child in the LN illustrations (what I saw it in the PV) which is why I prefer the anime visuals, but each to their own preferences.
