This week marks the first appearance of the Dragon's Anime previews section. Unlike reviews, the previews section will deal with first impressions of the first couple episodes of a series, sort of a heads up for people that are looking for something new to try. The first preview is for the new series Tactical Roar, produced by Studio A-Cat and Bandai Visual. In addition, I've also moved the Hellsing Ultimate review over into previews.

Tactical Roar (TV, 2006)

Overview

Now, here's an admittedly less than original idea on the outset. What happens if you take a naval battleship 'manned' entirely by women... and drop a single, quiet young man on it? And, being that this is an anime crew, it's a given that the girls aren't going to be your average rank and file members of the navy - especially given that this is actually what amounts to a mercenary ship. Thus we have the crew of the Pascal Magi, including their newest member, Hyousuke. A heavy, though outdated by the standards of Tactical Roar's world, destroyer class vessel hired out by the Haru-Nico Insurance Agency. So why, you might ask, does an insurance agency have a need for a heavy destroyer? Things are a little different in the world of Tactical Roar, with the major problem being a massive hurricane over the Pacific called the Grand Roar. This hurricane is so large that it is self-supporting and stationary. The power it displays has altered wind and pressure currents on a global scale, making air travel considerably more difficult, and so a second naval age has begun.
