Here is a rating of a nonmainstream anime. This guide will tell you if you should check these shows out or not if you happen to run across them, or if you should stop what you’re doing now and go look them up. I’ll will be judging on these 3 categories: storylines, graphics, and character chemistry. I will rank these categories on a 1-5 bases, with 5 being the best.
Today’s anime will be Dragonaut.
In this one Dragons disguise themselves as humans, but they transform into beautiful, yet powerful creatures. The dragons and humans have teamed up to protect humanity from Gillard army. The story revolves around Toa (dragon) and Jin (human) who have fallen in love. Jin and Toa must use the love between a human and a dragon to stop the forces of evil.
Storyline rating: 5 out of 5.
Dragonaut first aired in 2007, which was almost a decade ago, and the graphics are as good or better than what we have today. Without a second thought I give this category a perfect 5.
Graphics rating: 5 out of 5.
This category for this particular anime is a little vague. What I mean by that is, it’s all about perspective. As a child watching Toa and Jin in their shy, but lustful rage for one another was super romantic, but as an adult I find it somewhat silly. The only other knock I have on this category is the characters are either serious or silly: there isn’t much in between. Other than those two things all the characters fit their respective roles and have good dialogue with one another.
Characters Chemistry rating: 3.5 out of 5.
Dragonaut is an anime that not to many people have heard of and it can be a bit difficult to find online to stream, but Hulu does have the first few episodes dubbed. You can also order the series off of Amazon. This is one that I highly recommend as it’s one of my all time favorites.
Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5.
