New rule: if a light novel adaptation features pretty boys with fugly swords, it’s not worth my time.
Everything in Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru was cliched. Two pretty boy protagonists, one a bit of an asshole, one a bit stuck up, with a bit of sexual tension between the two that’ll go nowhere because the asshole already has a girlfriend. We get to see them fight dragons with their fugly swords, then it’s off for a bit of political intrigue with various kingdoms and countries I don’t have any reason to care about. There’s also the Church getting involved, which surely won’t be anything sinister before the real plot kicks in. Turns out there’s a serial killer hunting the sort of people that kill dragons and our two are on the list. I’ve seen it all before and there isn’t really anything here that interests me enough to struggle through the drudgery. I’m taking a pass on this one.
