I usually don't write reviews, but I felt compelled to write one about this out of principle.

Kuutei Dragons is a not very well disguised fantasy / glamorization of whaling ships, with "dragons" (these dragons have, uh, tentacles?) as fantasy whales that the crew of an airship hunts and butchers for meat and oil (ie. cooking and lamp fuel, etc – again, this manga isn't exactly subtle). Given that Japan is one of the few nations that still practices illegal whaling (and dolphin hunting), I found this pretty distasteful.

The art is pretty good. The story and characters aren't really anything to write home about. You could read more

So i bought 4 Volumes of this at once, having high hopes because the art style and the overall feeling of the manga covers reminded me of the ghibli movie 'Nausicaa of the valley of the wind' a lot..
What I expected was an adventure about a skyship and it's crew exploring the world and the dragons in it. The way they live and where they live, how it would be possible to locate and hunt them.. and ultimately how they would actually capture them in some interesting ways.

But all of this IS NOT in this manga.

We are simply following a crew of a dragon hunter read more

Finished reading Dungeon Meshi and want to scratch that slice-of-life-meets-isekai itch? Look no further, Drifting Dragons is your choice.

Before the review, a short rant. What is up with people who give up early and give bad ratings? Like, seriously, don't hand out 1's if you haven't read past 10 chapters.

Now, on to the review.

Story: 8 The plot is really creative, detailing the adventures of a dragon-hunting crew exploring the vast skies. It's quite slow initially, but the pace really picks up from around chapter 8 onwards. The events really allow the strong worldbuilding to shine through. It's fascinating to see how the read more

This is only a preliminary review, as just two volumes have been released in English at the time of writing, but 'Drifting Dragons' is my favorite new manga released in 2017.

It's too early to make a judgement call on the story, as so far it's been largely episodic and it's a bit early to tell if Drifting Dragons will stay on that path or it's just setting up the story world before diving into a major, central narrative. The story world itself is quite creative, a fantastical version of the 19th century where airship crews hunt dragons in the same way Nantucket sailors used to read more
