Crunchyroll streamed the 2020 film, offering a captivating narrative:

Historically, a staggering 72% of all fatalities in London find their origins in encounters with dragons, enigmatic entities concealed from the sight of the masses. Yet, unbeknownst to most, a valiant few have arisen to confront these formidable creatures.

Only the inhabitants of Reverse London, residing within the clandestine “reverse” realm of the city, possess the ability to perceive these dragons. Even among them, only a select cadre achieves the necessary qualifications as witches or wizards, enabling direct communion with these elusive beings.

At the heart of our tale stand the protagonists, the dynamic witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They serve as vigilant guardians for Wing Bind (WB), an organization dedicated to the preservation and management of these extraordinary dragons. Their noble mission entails safeguarding and overseeing London’s dragon population for the welfare of its inhabitants.
