Dragon Knights, Volume 2 Reviews
Suka sama trio Rath, Rune, Thatz. Sejujurnya seri ini punya plot dalam plot (?) dan alurnya tuh kadang membingungkan gitu. Terlebih gambar gelutnya juga kurang jelas, tapi entahlah, saya tetap suka. Haha.
Ok, so the second volumes goes into a few back stories involving a few characters. Mainly Rune, Thatz, and Nadil. If you're looking for complex back stories on these characters that shape their personalities you probably won't find them here. These character's pasts are just chapters that tell us how Rune and Thatz become Dragon Knights while the other one tells us about the fight between the Dragon Lord and the demon Nadil. Rune's backstory is pretty interesting. At least more so than Thatz's. We find out that he was a fairy (actually an elf) prince and he became a knight because the water dragon choose his elf powers to defeat the water demon fish who flooded the whole world some time in the past. Thatz's past tells us that he was a thief who tried to steal one of the dragons but ended up being used by Nadil's second in command to kill the Dragon Lord. It's short and is mostly full of comic relief. Again, not very interesting compared to Rune.Lastly, the other past is about Nadil kidnapping the Dragon Queen and the Dragon Lord going to save her. (I'm still boggled why she's referred to as the Dragon 'Queen' and not the Dragon 'Lady' or better yet why is the Dragon Lord called a 'Lord' instead of 'King'. I know it's a nitpick but that really bothers me.) This one doesn't explain why or how the Dragon Knights ended up with Nadil's head in the first volume. It just shows one of the things the villain did. If you really look at it, this part is practically pointless. This scenario only informs us on why the Dragon Queen can't produce and heir to the Dragon Lord and it shows the Fairy Elder using the Dragon Lord's blood to save his tribe. Of course, the manga doesn't tell us how the Dragon Lord's blood saved the faerie tribe but the Faerie Elder made some sort of elixir apparently by using Lykouleon's blood and the Elder's magic. The other thing that doesn't make sense was why Nadil kidnapped Lady Raseleanne? Let's just put what we know from this volume and try to place the pieces together.First, Nadil made Raseleanne infertile by taking out her dragon eyes (To this day, I'm sad to say I still don't know what those are exactly) and casting a spell on her. Nadil wants to take over when Lord Lykouleon dies. So by ending Lykoulen's bloodline Nadil thinks he can take over the Dragon Kingdom. I get that but there are some problems that don't make this plan very good.Instead of kidnapping the dragon queen why doesn't he curse her from a distance? Does he need physical contact with her in order for the spell to be effective? Also, instead of cursing the queen and having the Dragon Lord come rescue her wouldn't it make sense to kill the both of them right then and there? I mean Nadil's two second-in-command demons are doing nothing but watching from the sidelines. Couldn't he have them fight those demons Crewger and Illuser from a distance. I know the Dragon Lord's light is too bright for them to come close but do you mean to tell me that they don't have long distant attacks to use? *sighs*Either way, this one wasn't too great and for me that's saying a lot since I love this manga series so much. But I will admit that the first two volumes are not that spectacular.
It's cool to see memories and understand stories and everything but the transitions were terrible. They were so confusing. It was like all of a sudden we were talking about Thatz and how he got there and then the Dragon Lord and than Rune was thrown in with little Rath (which I admit defeat, he's freaking adorable) and I was all like - when did this happen? I mean the fact that it was a memory was obvious but still. Aside from that it was good ^_^
I enjoyed V2 a lot more than Vol1 for a few reasons: 1. The story isn't quite as spastic, and thus, is easier to follow. 2. It gives the story some context. What's going on, on a national scale. 3. It lets you in on the main three character's backgrounds and a bit of insight into some of the minor character's backgrounds.
There really wasn't much to the first volume except showing the main characters' personalities and some small journeys they took. This is definitely better because it reveals as to why each knight is who he is and a little bit of their past lives. In addition, we get see what the Lord Dragon was like and what happened to the Demon Lord, Nadil
this one was honestly a little better than the first one, but the editor should have suggested a better order for the segments. i think the story would have not only made more sense if told in a different order, but had a better impact, and frankly be a better story all together.
Rath is AWESOME,Oh and I like Thatz and Rune too...Thatz is my second fav...He likes treasure and food... I think it is funny when he tries to steal the dragon stone.
