The story of a red dragon is born in the land of Dragor. Born with large wings and the ability to change color, Yoshiko has been teased and laughed at for years. He is also the weakest of his kind, and yet he is strong at heart. One day, while he was flying, he just met a kind old dragon. In his cave, the old blue dragon just told Yoshiko about his ability, and how he can get rid of it. The old dragon just told Yoshiko that he will save his land from danger. In order to do that, Yoshiko will have to overcome trials that will make himself stronger.


What I love about this story is how it brings you into the world of Dragor. The author just creates a beautiful image in your head, when you read this fabulous tale. As you read along, you could imagine these giant and colorful dragons flying around their homeland. It's almost like you're there in a land full of dragons, and each dragon has their own personality. In general, I think this story is wonderful.

                As much as I love this story, there are things that I don’t like about it. Most characters here are bland, and one dimensional. Not only that, the story introduces random characters. Then a couple pages later, we don’t see them again for the rest of the story. We barely see the friends that Yoshiko hangs out with. In fact if this story was focused on Yoshiko and his friends, then it would be a little bit more interesting. There are some things that are still unexplained, which is very confusing. For example, why exactly does Yoshiko change color? Overall this story has its flaws, but it is still an enjoyable reading experience
