Maybe it's because they somehow built in us some kind of hope that the following episode might be actually good , only to have our hope crushed , but yet , this crushed hope gives birth to another kind of hope...which is crushed the following week and so on .
I agree. I don't know why on earth I am still watching this. It's utter crap and normally I would have given up on a show like this. But I'm still watching. The ending will probably suck and then I'll be left wondering why I wasted so many hours of my life.

I think it was because of the serious lack of decent anime lately. With nothing all that good to watch (besides perhaps Gundam 00) I kept hoping Dragonaut would get better. Alas, it never did. Thank god spring season seems decent.

This series doesn't deserve 100+ pages of commenting. Yet here I am, giving Dragonauts my +1 comment.

So is this show worth watching?
The "B" probably stands for bull****. Your "friend" may be refering to the fact that the plot revolves around bull****. However, I don't fully understand your comment about Gonzo. Gonzo has made Saikano and Vandread, two series that many people love and are generally considered great successes; not to mention Rosario + Vampire which I'm currently watching and I think it's great. And while Gonzo has also made crap like Dragonauts, I never considered the studio as having such a bad reputation.

B? For what? Boobs? lol. I suppose if you are in it solely for that then this series might be for you. There certainly a lot of that. But if you care about plot and stuff, stay away from this series. You'll regret it greatly otherwise. So much wasted time...

I'd like to think that they purposely made it "so bad it's funny." Gonzo's been around a while, maybe they've figured these things out.

But then again, it's a lot funnier if they're being serious.

Every now and then I see someone post in a thread to ask if the show is good. It's pretty much impossible to get an answer other than yes. After all, the majority of the people reading that thread should be fans. Of course they like the show.

This is the first time I have ever seen a largely negative response to that question.

This show is like a traffic accident. We're staring in horror unable to turn away. We know its gruesome and unpleasant, but the fascination keeps us turning our heads as we slowly drive past. One day, the only time we'll think of Dragonaut is when people are naming worst anime that they've seen or as the show with the outrageous breast physics. Then we'll just shake our heads with horror at actually sitting through all 25 episodes.

First time I've ever seen a visitor to the thread told that the show is bad.

If you like bad anime, then this is the show for you.

You know they mean business when they have Gio saying "Toa's life will end soon" around 5 times in just one episode.

This show was lol bad while Kazuki was evil, now it's just bad.

Anyway, I-Z just released an episode 24. Only one more to go.

Considering the number of posts and views on this thread, it's more of a genocide than a traffic accident/train wreck at this point. Good thing I love them genocides...

I just loved Kazuki's dialogue in this episode. Note that I'm using the word "love" in the sense that means I really wanted to bang my head against a wall. Repeatedly.
Kazuki: Jin, I'm the one who wasn't being considerate of you.

Kazuki: It's not over yet! There's still Jin! I'm sure he'll make Gio understand! I know Jin can do it! He can do what we can't!
I'm seriously going to puke.

Kazuki: But if we give up, then it's over.
Another exciting revelation is that people die when you kill them.

Kazuki: I don't want to regret anything anymore. That's why I'll do what I can with everything I've got.
Oh jeez, did he swallow a whole book of cliches?

Complete agreement.

He should have stayed a villain and died, instead of staying around and blabber like that.

Yea were not exaggerating either HayashiTakara its pretty bad and after reading your post in multiple threads and see what kind of series you like and how your thought process works i can guarantee you will hate this series but the train wreck factor might suck you in like it did most of us, so bad yet we can stop watching till the end. But there is a bright side there is an END

As much as i hate Kazuki there are many other characters that are either as hated or pretty damn close. Two recent ones off the top of my head that i couldnt stand

1.Shin (Gundam Seed Destiny)
2.I wont his name lets just say "Nice boat"

I fell away from watching Dragonaut some time around the Mars hot spring episode. Mostly because other better anime were taking up my viewing time than from any overwhelming dislike of the show. I've faithfully collected each episode though. (Thank you, Shouta and the I-Z team, for continuing the series to the end.) I don't know if I'll ever start up again and finish the series. Although I haven't watched in a long while, I've still lurked here because it's been fun watching you guys go through so much pain and agony week after week. I'm sadistic like that.

Oh hahaha...

Even without wasting my time on the subs I could have guessed...

I am still wondering why he isn't dead yet. God hopes they won't be setting him up for some tragic death will protecting Jin with everything he...nawwww.

Actually he did swallow the book of 1001 classic cliches. But for a guy to say those kind of stuff to another guy...

(Come on...if he wanted to protect Jin then he wouldn't have wanted to sink him into a bottomless pit ).
