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:


style="margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; text-align: center;" align="center">style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Verdana","sans-serif";">


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.


style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Verdana","sans-serif";">


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.
