Who will survive, dragons or humans?

100 years ago, dragons were defeated by humans, and the world became peaceful.
However, one day, the main character in the story hears a rumor about the dragons which were supposed to be extinct, and comes across a mysterious young girl...
A dragon-hunting RPG where you can enjoy freestyle battles, using a wide range of skills, and the unique 'Rotation' system!

- Rotation Battles
When choosing an action during battles, in addition to the standard commands, you can change the battle setting between 'Rotation' and 'Stay'. If you choose 'Rotation', at the end of the character's action, the positions of all the members of the party will change. If you choose 'Stay', the characters' positions will not change.

When selecting actions, the order of the following turns is displayed on the right of the screen, so it is possible to change enemies' positions appropriately. For example, when an enemy is going to attack, you can bring a character with high defensive strength to the vanguard, and conversely, you can move a character with low defensive strength to the rearguard.

- Ruin Mode
In a normal attack, you can launch a Downshot, in which you can choose one of three attack points. If you manage to hit the enemy's weakpoint, a critical attack is unleashed. In addition, if you succeed with a Downshot three times, your Ruin Gauge will reach its maximum value, and you will be able to make use of the powerful Ruin Mode.
In Ruin Mode, you can summon special sub-characters, and make use of powerful skills. If you use these well, it is possible to inflict huge damage in a single attack.

This must be from the same guys that made the tank and mech RPGs. From the trailer, it looks like this has choppy animations.

Here's gameplay by WishingTikal on what looks like an Android Emulator:



Recording's kinda meh but I think it really does have choppy animations. Here's part 2:

Thanks for the videos. Darn the animations are disappointing. I like the art and designs but seeing them in motion is not so good. And the static enemies don't help either.

Too bad because the tank RPG was well received and it seemed good from the bits I played.

Ugh, Magitec. Starting to like them even less than WWS lately. I should have the review for Revenant Saga up early next week and then I'll get this one done as soon as possible. Not expecting much, to be honest, after the trainwreck that was Shelterra.

Revenant is solid. I hope you at least enjoyed that one. I did!

But i agree, these Magitec ones are just Weird in terms of quality.

Can someone who is familiar with these Kotobuki RPGs tell me which of them are the best?

Asdivine is great. The Alphadia series is pretty good too
