Ikki Tousen Dragon Destiny Season 1 Review

Back when Geneon licensed and release Ikki Tousen: Battle Vixens, the series got a lot of grief from a vocal segment of fandom for its overt sexuality and amount of fanservice combined with violence. I haven't seen that season since it first came out but I have fond memories of it because it was so brutally honest about what it wanted to be and reveled in it. Four years after that season, a second season was kicked off with Dragon Destiny which was then followed by another season called Great Guardians. The first season must have done well enough for Media Blasters to pick this up and to dub it since they've seen the numbers for it and that means we get more sexy violence with high school kids imbued with the spirit of ancient generals and warriors.

Dragon Destiny doesn't do all that much to reconnect the viewer to the series in the four years since the first and that's a little refreshing, if a bit confusing. While the first season seemed to focus primarily on Hakufu and her ascent into the school she's in, this one seems to focus more on Gentoku at first from the Seito Academy. Gentoku really isn't interested in any of this stuff as she just wants to read her books and lead her life, but she's in the position of having a dragon inside her that others want to either unleash or conquer. Because of her position, she's regularly guarded by Kan'u and Chouhi as they've sworn to protect her at all costs, though Kan'u is secretly waiting and hoping that Gentoku will awaken the dragon inside and take her proper position.
