From Seven Seas:
Welcome to Ansullivan Dragonar Academy, a school with a difference: the students are dragon riders, each contracted with their own personal dragon. Ash Blake has the unique ability to ride anyone's dragon, but he's been waiting for what feels like forever for his own dragon to be born. He's thrilled when his dragon, Eco, finally appears--but she inexplicably takes the form of a beautiful human girl.
Eco's peculiar appearance is only the first unusual thing Ash faces. His life is about to become a whirlwind of spies, dragon races, and unexpected attention from both the proud Princess Sylvia and the beautiful president of the student council, Rebecca. All Ash wants is to acclimate Eco to the world, but someone out there wants his strange dragon on the dissecting table!

"Hey guys, let's put dragonaut and ZnT together!" No, please stop. Honestly, as much as I DO like fanservice, I hate it when the artist tries to hard to make it mesh with the story. Fanservice is like cheese. If you have too much cheese, you get sick of the taste. However, blend that cheese in with crackers or wine or whatever and it tastes THAT much better. So, the plot is insteresting, and so is the art. Still, I can't bring myself to love the excessive fanservice. 7.4 / 10
But i think its alright...
The drawings in this manga is simply SUPERB. The art is attractive and quite detailed too, with creases in their clothes and all that. Not saying its one of the best, but the story is pretty solid in my opinion. The author seems to have put a lot thought into this work; it has depth to its characters, plot and world.
What bothers me though, is the huge amount of ecchi content - a LOT of nudity, panty shots, butt shots, extremely and unrealistically short skirts, cloth ripping, very very very sexy and tempting female characters (and most of the cast is female), and almost everyone has big boobs -_-". In one chapter, a heroine gets caught in the infamous 'extremely suggestive tentacle grope' - which is extremely cliched, overused, and really unnecessary. Personally, I prefer ecchi content to be kept at a minimum (Srzly, you can still enjoy a story without ecchi at all..).
The bottom line: Its still enjoyable for me. A lot of people have what i call the 'Harem Rejection Syndrome' (lol jk jk), but I don't mind it one bit, and rather enjoy it. Another thing that bothers a lot of people is cliche content - well good luck finding truly, truly original works
As a side note, the main guy has a lot in his hands; I usually see works with just one heroine who's a tsundere, but this guy's got TWO very tsundere heroines, who's always angry at him all the time, with one of them always ordering him around haha. But that's fine cuz I love tsunderes~
P.S. I think it would be nice if this ever got animated. Maybe Seven Arcs would do it cuz the art style, at least for the manga, screams 'Nanoha'.

Way too cliche
You got a tsundere dragon, a tsundere "princess" (fellow dragon rider, her princess status has yet to be any factor), and a powerful buxom Student Council president. The manga seemed like it could be rather interesting, but its turned out to be mostly ho-hum. The setup had good possibilities, but its execution has has been filled with cliches and eye-rollers. The art is nice enough but too fanservicey, as if they were trying to apply some template (or checkoff list) to success. Rating: 3 of 5 (as of ch8) The setup is interesting enough, but the characters and execution are all way to cliche and devoid of any real sole. I rate it a 3 rather then a 2 only because I love tsundere characters (although these are a little TOO "text book").
This is sad. My hopes were dashed.
It had great potential with it's fairly original plot and premise, but all o that died when the mangaka decided to write the most generic shounen/fantasy/ecchi/harem manga that I have ever seen. Just when I think the story is going somewhere it is spoiled by overly tsundere characters and distracting amounts of ecchi. I think that the only people who would be interested in reading this are those who are interested in masturbating to the frequently nude loli-dragon-girl-thing with tumors on her head.(horn cartilage that when poked makes her respond with pseudo-sexual groans)
So generic it is actually painful.
I wasn't able to make it past the first couple chapters of this series. There is literally nothing new here: the "worthless guy with the bizarre ability to make every woman with twenty-five miles of him desperate to get into his pants and his harem of one-dimensional fetish vehicles" plot has been done to death in series with better art and more interesting gimmicks, and this series has nothing particularly new or enjoyable to shake up the mix. This feels like the kind of series where you remember it while you read it but then forget what happened - or even that you read it - a couple of months after you finish. A definite skip.

This is run of the mill shounen stock for you. The main character is in a world where only he seems to be unique, and he's practically useless, yet he manages to surround himself with girls. The main heroine (Eiko) is a typical dominating tsundere who acts just like Louise from Zero no Tsukaima. It's not a terrible series, and in fact, it has potential, but don't expect drastic development
it could be better
Chapter 5 is out with little to no develop for the story. The Main Character : Ash Blank gone down from a pretty decent guy to completely useless, the dragon girl is a loli retard with another i-am-so-better-than-you princess who screw up every time she appear. And what with those high cut leotard named "Divine Armor" and tentacle. Cheap fan service is cheap. I hope when the chapter 6 is out the author could do better than this..
Meh pretty mediocre.
I know it's a new series but man is the pacing slow. The art style is pretty decent. But why must the dragon be a loli girl!? I am so sick of loli characters. Hopefully the series will mature sooner rather than later.
EDIT: Nope, turned to shit instead. Drop this series if you're still reading it. Poor pacing, boring story, uninteresting/annoying characters...overall a bad manga. As I said, drop this series.

Seikoku no Ryuukishi
This is an excellent manga so far but bare in mind only read up to chapter 1 at this time.
Art, 9/10 story. 9/10
Its fun and enjoyable with a lot of promise for comedy action fantasy adventure, I highly recommend you give this a look.
