Dragonar Academy Blu-ray Review Dragonar Academy is an anime series based on a novel series written by Shiki Mizuchi. The series takes place in an age of dragons. The series is produced by Ryoji Maru.

The series primarily revolves around a student named Ash Blake who is enrolled in Dragonar Academy. At the school, Ash learns how to ride, tame, and work with dragons. However, the other students think of Ash as a bad student as he has trouble learning how to work with the dragons. Can Ash someday become a dragon expert at the Dragonar Academy?

The Dragonar Academy school is aimed at working entirely with dragons and with learning how to fly dragons and other dragon-training skills. Then one day, out of the sky, Ash encounters the Dragon named Eco who appears as a dragon girl. How does the mysterious dragon girl Eco fit into Ash's training?

The series is written by Noboru Kimura. The quality of the writing on this anime series is poor. Dragonar Academy is a badly written series which is lacking in quality craft and creativity. In terms of direction, the series is directed by Shunsuke Tada and Tomoyuki Kurokawa. This is certainly a badly directed series and not one which is inspired.

The series was animated by studio C-Station. The quality of the animation is also badly done. The animation has a cheap and generic quality to it and is lacking in the level of quality seen with better productions.

Dragonar Academy is an anime series worth skipping. The series has little to offer and isn't worth checking out. The show has a poor premise and the execution of the series isn't good either. The series is gross and uninspired. Dragonar Academy isn't a good anime and it is a poorly done production.

The Blu-ray:


Video:

Dragonar Academy is presented in 1080p MPEG-4 AVC high definition. The series is in the original aspect ratio of 1.78:1. This is a technically proficient release. The release has strong color reproduction and overall detail.

Audio:

 Dragonar Academy is presented in English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD and Japanese 2.0 Dolby TrueHD with English subtitles. The lossless series audio is impressive on the release. The series dialogue and music has strong fidelity. This is an effective lossless audio presentation.


Extras:

The release includes textless opening/closing themes, promotional videos, and trailers for other Funimation releases.

Final Thoughts:

Dragonar Academy is a bad quality anime series with poor writing, direction, and animation. Anime fans should consider this a series worth skipping. Funimation's release is technically proficient but the quality of the series is terrible.

Skip It.

Neil Lumbard is a lifelong fan of cinema, and a student who aspires to make movies. He loves writing, and currently does in Texas.
