What are the best dragon anime?

Dave - Contributor

Dragons are arguably the most popular mystical creatures to have ever graced the pages of human history. We won't be surprised if you're of the same opinion. Dragons are just cool. It's really as simple as that. In fact, dragons are quite common in a lot of modern literature and media today, particularly, in the fantasy genre. For the purposes of this topic though, Let's focus our attention more on the eastern interpretation of dragons. Dragons are magical, all-knowing creatures with powers and this is apparent in Japanese manga interpretations. They feature heroes that either seek dragons to ask for divine blessing or to slay them and make the power their own. It's all pretty fun and cool to see. Some of these manga have been adapted into anime shows and we have listed some of the really good ones below. Check them out and tell us what you thought in the comments section as well. We would love to hear from you guys.

  1. 1Dragon Ball Z

    "This is one of the more unique dragon anime shows around. While it doesn't feature an actual dragon, it is incorporated in the mech-like suit the main protragonist uses in battle, which in my opinion is pretty cool."
