Ethereal anime has hunting and fantasy violence; weak plot.

Stopped watching on episode #4 where they show an "intimate drawing" of one of the girls multiple times

The original review only covered the first 3 (of 10) episodes. Description for episode #4 says, "Hijinks ensue when an intimate drawing of Vannie appears...." The picture is a drawing of Vannie with part of a sheet covering her private areas. The picture is shown multiple times throughout the episode and there's much discussion about where the picture could have come from and who could have drawn it. When the group figures out who drew the picture, several guys made requests to have pictures drawn of women so they could keep them. We'd rather our 14yo son not watch shows like this. Had the scene with the drawing only been shown at the beginning of the episode, we would have considered skipping that scene and telling him what happened... but they showed it throughout the episode. We decided not to continue watching after this episode... so not sure about the rest of the series.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

This flighty series chronicles the antics of the Quin Zaza's crew from the point-of-view of newbie Takita. The hunting action offers some entertainment, but the rest of the narrative is filled with quirky conversations designed to keep the viewer interested until the crew chases the next dragon. Parallels can be drawn to Moby Dick and the seabound team of hunters trying to harpoon whales. There's not much of a story arc here, but the premise and characters are intriguing, and Drifting Dragons is fantastical enough to keep audiences interested.
