I just watched the first episode of Dragonaut and as soon as I saw this scene I knew I had to make this:

yea, the dragon Toa looked like a plastic toy, I guess GONZO is really low on budget or their CG animation skills have severely degenerated.

The series is okay so far, but definitely nothing original. We have this kind of dragons/demons/aliens/whatever things getting attracted to humans kind of stories for a long time, Argento Soma, Infinite Ryvius, Reideen, etc.

what are you talking about? there's zero similarity between Kazuki and Suzaku. Suzaku is a self-righteous killer, Kazuki is just completely obsessed. This is apparently a love triangle, Kazuki and Toa are both trying their hardest to get Jin's heart, with Kazuki being the more obsessive one

Is it just me, or the show is progressing too quickly? I'm particularly baffled by Jin's attitude towards Toa... you just don't treat a mysterious girl who literally flied to save your life from a berserking monster like a regular friend the first time you have a chance to talk to her. I believe they tried to set up the triangle Kazuki/Jin/Toa too quickly by contrasting Kazuki and Jin's childhood stargazing scene with Jin and Toa's (which made little sense IMO). And that kiss was kind of overkill... I sincerely hope they give some sort of explanation to it in the future. Other than that, the rest was okay, though like some other people here I'm a bit puzzled by the lack of quality on the CG side.

Hmm? I thought it was obvious from the word go. And I believe it's also pretty much evident that Toa had a hand at the space shuttle accident (which is probably going to be an important plot point).

My speculation is that dragons will develop certain feelings towards their masters that they resonate with. A more extreme version of love on first sight

I'd say it screams right from the start that Toa is the dragon that crashed Jin's father's shuttle. And it's a very old plot device of forgiving someone who has unintentionally committed a great sin in the past and then work together for the future. Right now it screams Agento Soma.

Your right the relationship between Jin and Toa feels unatural the way they holded hands at the end of the first episode felt rather forced. Now she's kissing him in episode two um okay...

Don't know this series seems hovering around mediocrity for me. The scene between Kazuki and Jin at the bridge was rather dumb as hell. I'm giving it at least one more episode...

It's likely that Jin just has a sense of ease and feeling towards her that pierces through a lot of the anguish that he's suffering. It's not uncommon for someone to have an attitude towards someone they connect to or like that's out of character with the rest of their actions. The most common thing you see with being lovestruck is restlessness and inability to focus. I bet Jin just feels a lot safer with Toa than anyone else. I don't think even he knows why. It also helps that she's pretty.

As for Toa, I'd agree with dreamless in concept. Gonna spoiler for anyone that hasn't seen it yet.

This is the only series, besides Gundam 00, that has kept be rather interested so far. Night Wizards seem interesting... but I digress.

Anyway, does Toa's dragon form somehow resemble this certain Pokemon:


I don't know. It just came to my mind the moment I saw her transform.

And despite this, Toa did save Jin's life... I mean, in the shuttle incident, where everyone else died...

This is a pretty cliche plot, but if they can make the process interesting, it is still worth my several hours of time.

You are probably right. But I have to say that for Jin these past 2 years must have been the worst of his life. And he always said he felt alone, so when Toa comes it is like a breath of fresh air. Somebody that cares for him. So in turn he opens up quite easily.

Yeah, that's another way of looking at it. She sees him as him rather than a tool or object to scoff at like the public and Dragonauts so far. Perhaps he doesn't feel like he has to put up his guard all the time around her?

So far not a fan of the weak CG dragons, story seems fairly run of the mill as well. We'll see how it goes, gonna give it 2 more ep's I think.

Well, she did save his life and listened to him...which is much more than can be said for other people who refuse to interact with him, as if in fear he was cursed or some other gossipy rot. And maybe the invisible bond between the both of them (as I believe that, during his freefall, Jin underwent the same dragon-exchange thing Kazuki had with Gyo) tells him she's not someone to be worried about - like some kind of unconscious empathy.

while Kazuki was desperately trying to keep Jin out of an even deeper mess. He knew the order to use weapons had been greenlit all the way and that, if need be, his teammates would comply and shoot, should Jin resist arrest or try to flee the premises. So, either he held Jin at gunpoint and spared him a fugitive's life or he let things in Fate's hands, crossed his fingers and hoped for the best. Yeah, maybe adding insult to an already injured buddy is not exactly the best way to show your solicitude but at least we should grant Kazuki that small point.

Which makes me wonder, though, how would an undecided, candid pussy like him grow into a rival, as suggested by the OP? Unless, of course, it's simply the traditional concept of two friends on two different sides but without bad feelings in between. Just two guys angsting over an untimely rift in their friendship.

EDIT: god**** lagging browser. Double posted by mistake.
