''Dunbine'' tells the story of Shou Zama, a Japanese motocross fan who, after a botched trick, falls into the fantasy world of Byston Well. There he is taken in by Drake Luft, a local lord, and is taught to pilot "Aura Battlers", which serve as the show's mecha. Things seem to be going well for him in the new world until Show meets with local [[LaResistance resistance]] leader Neal Given, who tells Show about a much darker side to Drake. Thus, Show takes up his Dunbine to fight alongside his new allies, and eventually takes his fight to odder and more fantastic locales.

''Dunbine'' is mostly known not for its rather formulaic plot, but for its interesting concept of setting HumongousMecha battles in the middle of a MedievalEuropeanFantasy. The mecha themselves take fluid, organic shapes and are much smaller than most mecha designs. The show starts strong, but the second half drags on until the grand finale, which is among the most flashy and explosive in anime history.

* EvilMatriarch: Drake's wife Luuza. You will be hard-pressed to find a worse mother in ''any'' anime. [[spoiler:Of course, it's not like Show's mom is any better...]]

* CharClone: A Tomino production has a hard time going without one. Bern Bunnings ([[spoiler: The Black Knight]]) ends up filling this role.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Was'' released on DVD by ADV but is now out of print. Just ''try'' getting the entire series on DVD... some scalpers want 125 bucks for the last volume ''alone''....
** Internet chatter has it that ''Dunbine'' sold so badly that the print runs were cut down to a few hundred discs for volumes 11 and 12.

* ExecutiveMeddling: The original book, Wings of Rean, didn't contain any mecha. Sunrise made Tomino add them. Tomino responded [[KillEmAll the way he usually does]].
