As Dragonaut continues, Jin quickly comes to find that Toa and several others are part of a paramilitary organization known as the International Solarsystem Development Agency (ISDA), whose tasks, among several others, include taking charge of the monsters who go bump in the night.
In search of a new place to call home, and in search of people he should hope to call friends, Jin joins up with the ISDA, and quickly comes to find that his life is about to get a lot more interesting. The Agency builds armored suits, called "dragons," and is in the business of harnessing the power of dragons for various purposes. Jin's budding relationship with Toa, as well as other characters within the organization, is likely to be the threads most likely to keep hoards of disasters from befalling the planet.
The first thirteen episode of the anime Dragonaut will be available from the first week of November ($49.98) as a single DVD Set release. Very much so a genre title that prefers to weave the romance of its two leads into the fate of the world, Dragonaut aims to engage audiences with mecha combat, teen love, and several well-endowed females. Applauded for its high quality of animation production, from GONZO (Romeo & Juliet, Last Exile), but affably derided for its fanservice, Dragonaut uses fantasy and comedy to approach plotting tropes typical of sci-fi anime. The second DVD Set release of the animation is currently scheduled surprising soon, in late December 2009.
