Dragons of Wonderhatch S01E05-E08 JAPANESE 480p WEBRip x264
This review is only from the first 4 episodes as the entire season has not yet aired, so it may need to be updated once I see the culmination of all creative decisions for the show. But as it stands now, I think the merging of animation and live action is done incredibly well. The thing I like most is that the directing style in the live action components portray a tone of fantastical wonder which perfectly pairs with the unbelievability of there being an entirely separate anime world. As such, it makes the show feel cohesive and the characters feel consistent in both the anime and live action segments even though by all accounts they shouldn't. Also, the VFX on the live action dragon so far is very well done and once again lets you immerse yourself in the show without poor special effects taking you out of the show and it just not feeling real or right as many live actions have done before. Additionally, the writing of the characters so far has laid a lot of well-thought-out groundwork and left the door open for a lot of complex character development if done right. So overall, a great start to a show.
