I don't know a heck of a lot about this series, but from what I do know, it doesn't seem like this one is going to go well.
Title: Chaos Dragon - Sekiryu Seneki, Chaos Dragon: Red Dragon Campaign
Production: Connect / Silver Link
Genre: Fantasy, Action
Airs: July 2nd (today), 2015
Chaos Dragon is unique in it's original form. The story itself is rather generic, but this one started life as a tabletop RPG game between some notable names in the anime, and it's surrounding industries:
- Kinoko Nasu (TYPEMOON: Fate/Stay Night, Tsukihime, Kara no Kyoukai)
- Urobuchi Gen (Nitroplus: Saya no Uta, Fate/Zero, Madoka, Psycho-Pass)
- Ryogo Narita (Light novelist: Baccano!, Durarara!!)
- Izuki Kogyoku (Light novelist: ミミズクと夜の王 and other works)
- Simdoriru (Illustrator, doujinshi artist)
I've read a few transcripts of the original play session, and I can say that the characters are based loosely off of something like a generalization of the player's works. Then the character is played however the person wants - Urobuchi takes a rather dark path of this, opting to have fun messing with the party as the antihero (sometimes more villain than hero).
The concept of creating a series based off of a tabletop RPG game isn't new - the biggest example being Record of the Lodoss War, which was based off of the creator's Dungeons and Dragons campaigns. It's a unique form of storytelling that involves everybody involved, giving the resulting story an organic feel. Sometimes it won't make a whole lot of sense, especially on rolls - like failing a roll even with advantage would look like missing even when you're point blank. It results in a more unpredictable story, as the progression relies not only on the player's decisions, but on the roll of the dice.
