Ryuuji Kisaragi is an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, living a peaceful life. Until his second cousin Eriko comes home from America, forcibly enlisting him in Seven Tails, her (unapproved) organization dedicated to hunting down Lost Precious, powerful artifacts from around the world. One of these artifacts is being traded that night, and she wants his help.

After seizing the box with the artifact, the box opens to reveal a young girl (later named Rose) who's both attached to Ryuuji and able to throw fire. She is a dragon, and her very presence sets off a chain of events that will decide both Ryuuji and Rose's future.

Based on a series of LightNovels, ''Dragon Crisis!'' was adapted into an anime in the winter of 2010/11.

The anime can be viewed legally at Crunchyroll [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/dragon-crisis here.]]
----
!!Tropes in ''Dragon Crisis!'' include:

* AbsoluteCleavage: Some of Eriko's outfits have this, like her dress in episode 6.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: Ryuuji's parents, to the point of ParentalAbandonment.
** [[spoiler:They do however pull a BigDamnHeroes moment at the end.]]
*** [[spoiler:A very small one.]]
* AProtagonistIsRyu
* ArtifactCollectionAgency: The Society. Eriko also started her own Lost Precious collection/recovery business called Seven Tails.
* BadassDriver: Eriko
* BadassTransplant: [[spoiler: Ai, whose powers are from a Lost Precious fused with her body.]]
* BareYourMidriff: Ai
* BeachEpisode[=/=]FestivalEpisode: Episodes four and five.
* {{Beergasm}}: Eriko does this in one episode
* BlandNameProduct: The researcher towards the end of #7 uses a computer sporting a "Doors 7" wallpaper.
* BigDamnHeroes: A truly awesome one in the final episode in which [[spoiler: all of the protagonists AND a lot of Society members storm Onyx's plane to with which he is kidnapping Rose.]]
** Ryuuji's parents, particularly his dad, get these once in a while.
* {{Bokukko}}: Bianca.
* BreatherEpisode: Episode 4, which is pretty light-hearted compared to the previous episodes.
* BromanticFoil: Masato
* ButtMonkey: Masato's main role seems to be something for Mao to hit when things don't go her way, particularly with trying to hook up Ryuuji and Misaki.
* CarFu: Eriko crashes a car into [[spoiler:Onyx on [[CrazyAwesome top of an Airplane]].]]
* ChainedHeat: Ryuuji and Ai get trapped by a Lost Precious, which is only able to reduce itself to a pair of handcuffs. This includes when Ai has to clean herself off in the bath.
* ChaseScene: With a TakeTheWheel moment.
* ChekhovsGun: The ice cream becomes very important in the last episode.
* ClingyJealousGirl:
** Rose, towards Ryuuji, but in a totally adorable way. Rose gets jealous of Maruga when the latter mentions that they're not married, and gives Ryuuji a kiss (while blocking Rose's view of it with an umbrella) as thanks for him helping her resolve her issue in episode 5. Which then prompts Rose to repeatedly suggest they get married, giving poor [[HopelessSuitor Misaki]] another HeroicBSOD moment.
** Ai leans this way towards the end.
* [[CoolBigSis Cool Older Cousin]]: Eriko
* ConspicuousCG: The super-deformed Eriko (see Dancing Theme below); Also used for various vehicles.
* CrashIntoHello: Ai meets Ryuuji this way when he tries to catch her after she jumped off a tree branch to save a falling cat.
* CurbStompBattle: Onyx kills several security guards, breaks gates open, kills some more security guards and takes Rose for a walk.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Practically everyone except Bianca, Rose and Saphie.
* CuteLittleFangs: Ai and Rose.
* DancingTheme: A SuperDeformed number featuring Eriko with the rest of the cast.
** The ending theme itself, "Mirai Bowl" is an actual song with dance choreography by Music/MomoiroCloverZ, which is also a super-adorable EarWorm!
* DeclarationOfProtection: Part of Ryuuji's motivation for helping out the various women in the series, particularly Ai and Rose.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: The intro ''Immortalist'' is sung by Maruga's [[Creator/YuiHorie seiyuu]].
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Eriko at times.
* HairDecorations: Maruga's ribbon.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: The AxCrazy painter, who believes that all women are liars, even after the girls tell the truth to his questions (all of which involve Ryuuji in some way). Although they manage to escape, he's still convinced they're all liars, and tries to kill them anyway.
* ExcitedShowTitle
* FantasticArousal: Ai's ears and tail are ''very'' sensitive.
* FantasticRacism: Onyx regularly and casually compares humans to ants and insects not worthy of any consideration, and yet oddly enough WouldNotHitAGirl [[EvenEvilHasStandards who is human.]]
* FiveManBand: The main characters!
** TheHero: Ryuuji
** TheLancer: Eriko
** TheSmartGuy: Maruga/Bianca
** TheBigGuy: Rose
** TheChick: Misaki
** SixthRanger: Ai
* FriendlyEnemy: Sapphie. The worst she does to the main characters is get them wet. Then later she "attacks" Rose, but only gets herself wet, and the next scene is at Ryuuji's apartment where Rose is helping dry her clothing, giving her a bath, and feeding her. Even when Rose is kidnapped, she helps out the main characters and never truly acts intentionally malicious towards them.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Eriko, at least in the OP.
* GirlInABox: Rose
* GirlOfMyDreams: Rose is, in Ryuuji's dreams.
* GhostTown: In episode 9, several of the girls get sucked into a Cursed Precious painting of one. An AxCrazy murderer also happens to live in this painting and chases after them.
* HairAntennae: Rose and Eriko.
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler:Averted because Ai is a half-wolf thing as a result of having a Lost Precious embedded inside her.]]
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Eriko.
* HaremHero: Ryuuji is a Type 2A.
* HealingHands: A dragon's breath can heal humans, like when Rose heals Ryuji after their fight with Onyx.
* HeelFaceTurn: Ai, [[spoiler: after reading her master's thoughts that he actually kidnapped her and was merely using her as an experiment.]]
** [[spoiler: Sapphie seems to do this as well. Then again, she never really seemed evil in the first place, and actively tries to help Rose out.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Misaki suffers one after hearing Rose mention being engaged to Ryuuji. It ticks her friend Mao off so much that she tries to hit Masato on the head during a watermelon smashing event at the beach.
** Ryuuji seems to suffer this about halfway through episode 11. It takes Misaki and Maruga talking to him to snap him out of it.
* HopelessSuitor: Poor Misaki, it seems she never really had a chance with Ryuuji, since he was snatched up by his cousin within the first 5 minutes of being introduced, then Rose clings onto him before she ever gets an opportunity to express her feelings. It doesn't stop Mao from trying to [[ShipperOnDeck hook them up]] however.
* HotScientist: Bianca, especially when she gears up.
* AnIcePerson: Margarite, aka Maruga, as well as a wielder of the Ice Rage.
* IdiotBall: Ryuuji has the poor sense to believe everything Onyx says to him, [[spoiler: regarding Rose's ailing health, so he helps Onyx to kidnap Rose.]] This happens despite he knows that Onyx is a lying douchebag and more importantly he didn't even try to ask help from Maruga.
* IfICantHaveYou: When Rose made it absolutely clear that she will never consent to being engaged to him, Onyx [[OneWingedAngel assumes his draconic form]] and proceeds to attack her ''and'' Ryuuji. He wanted [[spoiler: the power boost he would get from the engagement contract. Ironically, he would have had better luck with his loyal subordinate Kai than with Rose, seeing as how the requirement for this particular magical contract is for both parties involved to TRUST each other.]]
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Sapphie tries really hard to be an antagonist to Rose, but ends up as more of a FriendlyEnemy.
* InterspeciesRomance: Dragons and humans. But other than some markings on their hand, dragons look indistinguishable from humans while not in dragon mode.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Misaki seems to lean towards this at the end, but Mao refuses to accept this for her, and immediately plans "Operation Take back Ryuuji", much to Misaki's dismay.
* LimitedAnimation: The closing credits.
* LineOfSightName: Ryuuji decided on Rose's name after seeing the scale markings on her hand.
* [[LearntEnglishFromWatchingTelevision Learnt Japanese From Watching Television]]: Rose learned a few basic words from Ryuuji and Eriko, but by episode two she's able to speak Japanese pretty fluently.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy:
** [[spoiler:Furumori]] who justifies his actions because he thought the society wanted him to perform dangerous experiments to [[spoiler:merge Lost Precious items into human bodies]]. When a female friend of his got sick, he tried to get an item that would cure her, but was repeatedly denied by the society member who owned said item.
** The Ax murderer/painter fits this as well, since after being cheated on, he feels all women are liars.
* LoveMakesYouDumb: Ryuuji, see the IdiotBall for details.
* MadScientist: Tokura and Bianca. With Bianca, it only really fits in her introduction episode, what with firing a Ryuuji-seeking missile at him in a classroom, then having a giant robot attack him (which in a flashback apparently didn't work the first time either). After that, she more or less acts somewhat normal.
* MagicContractRomance: Ryuuji and Rose.
* MakingASplash: Sapphie. She's so hilariously bad with her water-based powers that the best she's ever done is to drop a ball of water on someone's head. She's pretty obviously the IneptMage as far as dragons go.
* Manchild: Eriko is irresponsible, messy, and [[LethalChef can't cook to save her life]]. It seems Ryuuji is the adult most of the time, not Eriko.
* MarshmallowHell: Eriko does this to Ryuuji in the first episode.
* TheMasquerade: Considering Bianca fired a bazooka in the middle of a classroom, and then smashed part of it with a giant robot, it's startling how few people seem to catch on. Misaki notices, but only after being sucked into a painting, seeing Rose shoot fire, watching Saphi sprout wings, and even then has to be told outright.
* MeaningfulName:
** The "Ryuu" in "Ryuuji" means dragon, the "ji" means to govern or rule.
** George the Dragon slayer is an obvious allusion to Saint George, ''the'' Dragon Slayer.
* MissionControl: Tokura does this a lot, often providing information to Eriko.
* NiceGuy:
** Father George, who is far too sweet and kind-hearted to ''ever'' be good dragon slayer.
** Ryuuji too. He even stops a guard from hitting Ai with a nightstick, even though she was stealing stuff at the time. In fact, almost every main girl is attracted to him due to this trope, with the exception of his cousin.
* NunsAreMikos In a broad sense, anyway. The business with George and the sword and the mysteriously crossless church doesn't actually fit very well into major Christian denominations, but ''does'' seem to match depictions of Shinto tropes.
* OfficialCouple: Rose and Ryuuji, but the end of the anime hints that the other girls aren't going to give up that easily.
* OnionTears: Episode 10 starts with Ai, Rose, and Misaki all crying because they're chopping onions.
* OperaGloves: Maruga often wears these.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Ryuuji chooses to be this, at least until Rose shows up. Played straight with his two female and one male classmates however.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Except for the scale markings and the superpowers, dragons look like normal humans. Until they transform.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Ai is some sort of werewolf-like creature, though she never goes full wolf.
* ParasolOfPrettiness: Maruga almost always has a parasol with her, even at night.
* PatientChildhoodLoveInterest: Misaki.
* PlayingWithFire: Rose
* PowerTattoo: The markings on Ai's shoulder.
* PrettyFreeloader: Rose for the most part. Eriko sometimes, although she does drive Ryuuji around once in a while too. Interestingly enough for a harem anime, it's averted for every other main girl, as they have their own places to live, although they do show up at his apartment from time to time.
* RapunzelHair: Rose's hair reaches her waist.
* RedRightHand: All Dragon have scales on their hand.
* Really700YearsOld: Maruga and Onyx. Maruga knew her uncle, who died a hundred years ago, so she has to be over a hundred years old despite appearing to be in her late teens/early twenties. Onyx and Maruga were childhood friends so he has to be over a hundred as well.
* SecretKeeper: Ryuuji and Eriko have to keep the existence of dragons a secret from their human friends.
* ShipperOnDeck: Mao is trying to ship Misaki and Ryuuji. Even when it seems obvious Misaki doesn't stand a chance, Mao still attempts to do this.
* ShoutOut: In episode 9 the killer bears a slight resemblance to [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} Michael Myers]]
** The town itself in Episode 9 is a reference to the Creator/StephenKing novel ''Literature/{{Desperation}}''.
* ShrinkingViolet: Misaki Etou.
* SinisterScythe: Ryuuji's dad was seen with one in Bianca's traumatic flashback.
* StealthHiBye: Bianca seems able to vanish and appear to characters no matter if they're in a classroom, or on top of a flight control tower.
* SuperDeformed: The characters in the closing credits.
* SupportingHarem: Rose and Ryuuji are "engaged", magically and otherwise. The rest of the harem does stand a fighting chance, but none of them live with him.
* TemptingFate: When the girls escape from the painting in episode 9, Eriko comments that if this was like a horror movie, something bad should happen next. Cue the AxCrazy murderer escaping into their bathroom mirror.
* TickleTorture: Eriko uses this on a captured Ai to get her to find out more about her.
* TheBigDamnKiss: [[spoiler: In the final episode, Ryuuji and Rose kiss and activate [[ThePowerOfLove the Love engagement]] and destroy Onyx]]
* ThePowerOfLove: dragon "engagements" require both parties to trust each other completely and have feelings for each other, and give both a massive temporary boost in magical power. At one point this power was even used directly to [[spoiler:disintegrate Onyx.]]
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Ryuuji]] is a Lost Precious. Later subverted because, [[spoiler: Fang lied.]]
* ThoseTwoGuys: More like that one guy and girl, but Masato and Mao, Ryuuji and Misaki's school friends, are this.
* TitleDrop: [[spoiler: Onyx says that Ryuuji is a Dragon Crisis. He lied.]]
* TokenMiniMoe: Rose, and Sapphie.
* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler: According to Onyx, Ryuuji is apparently a human like Lost Precious that is dangerous to dragons. He lied.]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: A good description of Misaki and Maho.
* TransformationTrinket: The Lost Precious inside Ai.
* UrbanFantasy
* VaporWear:
** Bianca is clearly not wearing any normal panties.
** Literal example is Maruga's Melting Bikini-top in the BeachEpisode (...don't ask).
** Eriko doesn't always wear a bra either, such as her dress from episode 6.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Rose doesn't like it when Ryuuji is threatened.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Furumori.
* WhenItAllBegan: [[spoiler: When Ryuuji found Rose's egg.]]
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Frogs]]: Ryuuji hates them it seems. He even gets warts just by holding onto a box with a picture of them on it.
* WingedHumanoid: Dragons
* WouldntHitAGirl: Ryuuji. Subverted with Onyx, who claims this, although he does try to attack Rose and Ryuuji. However, he does only use a spell to knock out Eriko.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Maruga and Sapphie
* YoungerThanTheyLook:
** George is only nineteen.
** [[spoiler: Dragons themselves upon hatching are, based on their physical development, around 12-14 years old. So their entire SPECIES starts out this way.]]
