It is a world replete with dragons and Jushiki sorcerers. Jushiki is a devastatingly powerful formula that can alter the laws of physics, capable of creating enormous TNT explosives or poisonous gas through plasma and nuclear fusion. A down-on-his-luck sorcerer named Gayus joins forces with the beautiful but cruel Jushiki practitioner, Gigina, as bounty hunters pursuing dragons. Then one day, they are presented with an odd request: to serve as security guards for a grand festival put on by Mouldeen, the ruler of their kingdom. It is then that a mysterious serial killing of Jushiki sorcerers begins. (Source: TBS Global Business)

The type of show that so wordy and full of itself that you only leave it on for background noise while you’re doing chores around the house.


Watching this show reminds me why light novels are oftentimes synonymous with trash.


Honestly could not get past the disgusting meaningless self-stroking word vomit


The story is very confusing and the main character doesn’t do any good.


the dialogue is trash. everything else is mediocre from first impression


Nothing too special, seems overly generic.


Realmente não entendo pq odiaram tanto o anime, a animação tá boa, o visual é bom tb e a historia é a unica duvida, nada mto ruim até agora.
