Welcome to the Dragon's Dogma review! Before we go into short review since I have a bad habit of reviewing shows long time after I seen them, I never play the video game. I cannot make video game comparisons.
The anime is simply 7 episodes which are titled based on the seven deadly sins. Out of the 7, lust is the one that doesn't get a huge story focus on its sin. We have a small cast and only 2 recurring supporting characters: Balthazar and Simon. The anime does a good job of evolving and changing Ethan and Hannah, our 2 main characters. Ethan was the guy who help anyone on his quest and then he becomes obsessed over revenge and doesn't show any compassion. Hannah is the complete opposite. She doesn't care for humans and sees them as miserable creatures (being the logical type), but later on, she shows compassion and more emotions. The anime lacks world building as I don't get the mechanics of Pawns (other than they come out of nowhere to help Arisen take on Dragons). Arisen are humans whose hearts are stolen by dragons. They must defeat the dragon to get their hearts. However, without spoilers, there is a plot twist to this tragic cycle. This is a more plot driven show with the purpose of killing the dragon in Ethan's quest for revenge.
The music is unmemorable. The animation is decent. I have seen better CG animation in other Netflix titles such as Dorohedoro. The anime's CG animation is better than Baki's anime.

Nudity - bare breasts and nipples and butts
Brief sex scenes

Overall, it's a decent anime that looks more like a western animation. It's definitely produced in Japan. I watched in Japanese. If you have time to kill and like fantasy revenge stories, then give this one a try.
Old Man Dream: 26 episodes, actually. Took a week for me to finish. Actually got through the first half quick last weekend. Slowed a bit over this week because things in real life got a bit hectic.

Old Man Dream: On episode 2. One question to ask: why the hell was Midori's real body naked when Seiji and Midori-Hand were at her house?

Taka: Been a long time since I watched it. I remember being surprised at the nudity.

Old Man Dream: For context in that episode, Seiji decided to go to Midori's house to try figuring out why Midori-Hand is on his right hand and sees the real one is in a coma. Assuming Midori-Hand would somehow return to her real body if she made physical contact with...

Old Man Dream: it, the two are shocked to see that for whatever reason, Midori's original body was kept in the nude by her family.
