Hisone Amakasu is a young woman; well, more girl than woman; seeking a career in the military. She has a lot of growing up to do. A bit too honest, Hisone has a habit of thinking out loud and saying things she knows she should not say. She doesnít mean to be abrupt. She does have a good heart, though she lacks self-confidence. And she has been recruited to pilot an OTF; that is an Organic Transformal Flier. OTFís are also called dragons, because thatís exactly what they are. Dragons who swallow up their pilots who work inside the dragonís innards. Yes, it can get yucky.

That is the premise of Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan. (Masotan being Hisoneís dragon.) Itís a messy job which Hisone does not want, until she bonds with Masotan. That may be all predictable, but it is fun to watch.

Hisone also bonds with her fellow pilots, girls with not much in common other than their special mission. Only it takes a while to learn exactly what that special mission is and what is required. And of course, Hisone has to save the day. This is obvious, but again it is fun to watch.

The artwork is not drawn to imitate realism, but can be rather childish -- which is good. The artwork reminds us that Dragon Pilot is not a series to be taken totally seriously. Though in this action adventure-comedy, Hisone does learn her lifeís lessons, and gains self-purpose and self-worth. She remains the same old silly little Hisone, but she does grow as a person learning to take responsibility for those close to her. Dragon Pilot is a fun anime, but teaches a serious lesson.

Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan is an anime which I believe appeals to all ages. There is nothing to keep kids from watching, but I think adults will enjoy it as well. Heck, get the whole family to watch together.

Season 1 is on Netflix Streaming. Season 2 is supposed to be forthcoming, although season 1 is a complete story in itself.
