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).

Manga about hunting whal-ehem, dragons. Whole premise is killing these creatures to eat them because they are tasty.

Art is good, but when you have a manga with such read more
