    I'm wondering if anyone else around here has seen the anime, read the manga, or at least heard of it before. If so, what did you think?
    After buying and watching the first DVD (twice through) I'm totally hooked and in love with the concept (ditto to the intro/ending songs). I can't wait until I have the money to buy more o.o

    Did I mention that Chibi, the main character's dragon, is adorable?

    A quick description for anyone who has no idea what I'm talking about (straight off the first DVD):
    "Reiji Ozora was just another loser in junior high... but that was before he met Chibi, a cute and innocent looking 'sleeping dragon' living in a virtual world called D-Zone. Now he is hooked on this virtual-reality game 'Dragon Drive' that lets you slip into D-Zone and battle against the other players with their dragons. Find out how Reiji deals with some of the strongest players while his only hope is the weakest dragon with zero assault power!"

    To me it's a cross between .hack//SIGN, Angelic Layer, and Digimon. It's not overly violent (as of yet) but it's fun, and I think pretty much any fan of monster-ish anime would enjoy it. Besides, it has Chibi :D

  2. I have heard of it before but that is pretty much it.
     
  3. I read a one chapter preview in Shonen Jump.
     
  4. I read that too, I really liked it. Now I want to pick it up.

    Y'know, I've left this topic open in hopes that I'd get some discussion going (after being horribly ripped up from the grave), but I'm starting to wish I hadn't. If you read it and liked it, WHAT did you like about it? :p
     
  6. Sorry. I liked the art work, all the Dragons looked awesome. Also I find Reji Ozora hilarious, mainly the fact that he quickly loses intrest and is always late.

    Heh. That's actually why I'm looking forward to collecting the graphic novels (whenever they're finally released). As much as I love the Anime, I'd rather see the dragons hand-drawn than in CGI. The CGI can be cool, yeah, but a lot of the times it seems to clash with the artwork. I'd be just as happy without it in the show at all.
     
  8. Ehhh, Im not big on animes to that do with monsters. (I dont even watch Poke'mon, unless they are showing teh Regis that is xP ) Especially animes that do with dragons, I mean, there so overrated now days D= you don't see any shows bassed off a mystic Elk, or a Rabbit or something, No no its all about Dragons. Its not that I don't like dragons, its just that I think there usually about the same thing some dragon determines the fate of some the planet or something like that >.
