Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru (2018)

Dances with the Dragons (されど罪人は竜と踊る Dances with the Dragons Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryū to Odoru: Dances with the Dragons, lit. “Yet the Criminal Dances with the Dragons”) is a Japanese light novel series, written by Labo Asai and illustrated by Miyagi, who was later replaced by Zain. It was originally published as Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryū to Odoru (されど罪人は竜と踊る) by Kadokawa Shoten, who released eight volumes between 2003 and 2006 under their Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint. It switched publishers in 2008 to Shogakukan, who have published twenty-one volumes as of January 2018. A manga adaptation of the original series with art by Yaku Haibara was serialized in Kadokawa’s Beans Ace magazine. It was collected in a single tankōbon volume. An anime television series adaptation by Seven Arcs Pictures premiered on April 5, 2018.


The series takes place in an alternate world, staged mostly in the city of Eridana, whose territory is half in the Tseberun Dragon Empire, and half in the Lapetodes Seven Cities Alliance. Each half is separated by the Orielal River. In this world, special abilities called spell formulas (咒式, jushiki) exist, which are essentially chemical reactions augmented through special weapons that cause a magic spell-like effect. These special weapons are called Magic Staff weapons, and are as varied as regular weapons are. Spell formulists use these spell formulas to fight with “Beasts of Abhorrent Form,” natural creatures that use spell formulas and pose a threat to humans, such as Dragons, Aions, or Enormes. The story focuses on the two main characters, Gaius Sorel and Gigina Ashley-Bufh, the only two employees of spell formulist dispatch office Ashley-Bufh & Sorel Co. They are met with a variety of requests from a variety of clients, all requiring the adept use of spell formulas.
