Dragonaut: The Resonance is an anime about breasts, or so that's what I gather after watching part one of the series. The first line on the back of the DVD seems to confirm my suspicions: With a deadly asteroid hurtling towards Earth, sexy human Dragonauts in tight uniforms, and their curvaceous dragon companions come together... and the rest isn't really important - suffice it to say it contains the words voluptuous and flyboy along with the phrase quick to grab by the seat of his pants. It's pretty obvious what Funimation saw as the key selling points here.
As the name would imply the series has something to do with dragons. Don't get too excited though; they aren't of the kick-ass, medieval, fire-breathing variety or even the semi-cool kind from space only Mothra could defeat. These alien life forms, when not spending their afternoons lounging around in human form, are a giant mecha sort of dragon more closely resembling oversized Pokemon with cockpits fastened to their spines than anything else.

I'm not entirely sure the word 'mecha' applies in this case as they are mechanical in outward appearance alone; it'd be safe to assume this is simply because animating hard surfaced 3D objects is less daunting than organic. The presence of a manned cockpit on some of the dragons also confounds me. I understand the relationship between master and dragon, however would it not be more sensible to issue commands via communications link? I digress...
