Soulmates...romance and chivalry!
Dragon Rider is definitely a good combination of fantasy and adventure,
where dragons, knights, and beautiful princesses make up one fabulous
fairy tale. It's light-hearted and fun, delving into subjects
such as soul mates, romance, and chivalry. Nothing too serious,
except for spirit possessions and the usual conflicts arising
from titles of this genre.
The characters are another thing altogether. We have here another
hero, Rike, who doesn't look like your typical h-anime protagonist.
He's cute too, and not as hormonally imbalanced as most h-males
are. He even tries to be faithful to his lover despite the callings
of fate. But of course, you can't always deny your destiny. The
female lead Karisu, on the other hand, is something special as
well. Aside from her great form, guess what? She isn't your typical
damsel in distress who ends up getting sexually abused by the
dreaded enemy. She's also one of the few fortunate h-anime women
who finds love at the end of the rainbow without having ever experienced
The hentai scenes are very detailed. I can guarantee that romantics
will definitely look forward to the last parts where the lovemaking
is slow, sweet, and languid.
I have one itty-bitty gripe, though. If you'll allow me a mild
spoiler, I feel sorry for the lovelorn woman who eventually gets
left behind without so much as a by your leave. She should've
at least gotten a happy ending, just like the central characters,
but this is just one of the unusual "fairy tales" where
the princess doesn't get her knight.
