  • A great series worth a shot!

    I get a lot of questions about whether or not the series Dragon Drive is good or not. Well, I can plainly tell you that it is indeed a good series. However, because Bandai cut out the cussing and blood, it was given an age rating of 8+. This caused many anime fans to not even tak enotice of it. However, the original version was suited for ages 13+.

    Some people say the series bears a similar resemblacne to shows like Yu-Gi-Oh, and I can say that this is false. They do use cards in it, but only for about the first three episodes, then you never see them again. The show takes place in a viritual realty world for the first five episodes, which is similar to Digimon in a way. But, for the rest of the series it takes place in another world that is indeed real.

    Dragon Drive is a story about a young boy named Reiji Oozora who has earned the title of "Slacker King" (or "Tardy Champion" in the dub), becaus ehe is an unmotivated, lazy slob who quits everything. However, when he gets hooked up with a game called Dragon Drive, he becomes obsessed. He first gets a dragon that he names Chibi, who is the weakest of them all. After many struggles, he finds out that Chibi is in reality Senkoh Coola, a legendary savior of a world known as Rikyu. There he discovers the truth about Dragon Drive, and the company behind it's evil intention to revive an ancient dragon that will allow them to rule both Rikyu and Earth. Reiji and Chibi, along with Reiji's friends, must work together to save both world's from destruction.

    Don't think the series is all happy stories. There are many signs of comedy, death, loss of a friend, love, betrayal, and plenty of action. So, before you go dissing it because of the stupid rating Bandai gave it, give it a shot. Although Bandai removed the cussing and lots of blood, they did it in a way to make it look like hardly anything was removed. If you want to see it in its true glory though, seek out some fan subs or the manga. The manga is a little different, such as the fact that some characters don't appear in it, but the general story is still the same.

    So, check it out!moreless
  • A show where student goes into a world call dragon drive to use their own dragon to complete with one another. But things begin to change when a little boy call Reji awaked his sleeping dragon, which is an gurdian of the dragon world.moreless

    This show is awesome. I like this show when i watch the first 2 episode, its encourage people to work. When facing problem, do not run away and face it seriously.

    I like most is the ending part where Reji still gets Chibi back after defeating the evil dragon. And chibi is weak again just like the first time they met. ANd everything has to start all over again, and his rivalstill want to challenge him even he is weak.moreless
