Q. What is Ragna Crimson’s review? Is it worth a watch?
A. In terms of numbers, Ragna Crimson has been doing well on the My Anime List forum as well as in terms of actual manga sales. The series has a typical fantasy world setting but is set to bring dragons back as dreaded antagonists. The plot mostly revolves around human Dragon hunters and their relationship with the beasts they are paid a bounty to slay.
Ragna Crimson does play to a few cliches in terms of the protagonist’s character development and motivations but does better in writing the more complex twisted side characters and antagonists. All in all, the anime adaptation for the series is definitely worth a shot.
