Chaos Dragon is a fantasy anime series produced by Silver Link and Connect studios. The show premiered in July 2015 and comprises 12 episodes. It is based on a tabletop role-playing game, which was developed by five Japanese authors, who also created the world and the characters that the anime adapts.

The anime takes place in the Land of Nil Kamui, a kingdom that is ruled by several protectors, who each possess the power of a dragon. The story follows Ibuki, a young man who serves as the only remaining member of a powerful family that previously ruled Nil Kamui. The country is in turmoil due to disputes between different factions, and Ibuki is forced to become involved in the conflict.

The series begins with Ibuki traveling to a fortress in Nil Kamui, where he is reunited with his childhood friend Eiha. However, their reunion is short-lived, as they are soon attacked by soldiers from a neighboring country. Ibuki is captured, and Eiha is believed to be dead.

Later, Ibuki is rescued by a group of strange travelers, who include a knight named Swallow, a mage named Lou, and a man named Red Dragon, who claims to be the guardian of Nil Kamui. The group is on a mission to stop one of the protectors, a woman named Black Dragon, who has gone rogue and is causing destruction across the country.

As the series progresses, Ibuki and his new friends become involved in the larger conflict between the protectors of Nil Kamui. They learn about the Dragon Pulse, a powerful force that flows through the land and gives the protectors their powers. However, the Dragon Pulse is also the source of many of the country's problems, as factions compete for control of it.

Throughout the series, Ibuki and his friends encounter other characters with their own agendas, such as a young girl named Mashiro, who possesses a unique power that is sought after by several factions. The group also faces challenges such as betrayal and loss, as the conflict in Nil Kamui intensifies.

The anime features intricate world-building, with a detailed backstory and mythology. The series explores themes such as power, loyalty, and sacrifice. The characters are complex, with their own motivations and flaws. The animation is visually stunning, with vivid colors and detailed settings.

Chaos Dragon features a talented voice cast, including Marina Inoue as Eiha, Maaya Uchida as Mashiro, and Soma Saito as Ibuki. The series was directed by Masato Matsune, with series composition by Shou Aikawa and character designs by Uiro Yamada. The show's music was composed by Hitomi Kuroishi.

The anime received mixed reviews upon its release. Some critics praised the world-building and character development, while others criticized the pacing and use of tropes. The anime's fidelity to the tabletop game it was based on was also a point of contention among fans.

Despite the mixed reception, Chaos Dragon remains an interesting and engaging anime series. It provides a unique take on the fantasy genre, with a focus on complex characters and political intrigue. The series' detailed world-building and mythology add depth and richness to the story, making it a must-watch for fans of the genre.
