A long time ago, dragons, creators and keepers of water, lived side by side with people in the magical land of Kumandra. Peaceful life came to an end when the Druuns appeared. The spawn of darkness turned people and dragons into stone sculptures, and only the magic of the dragon woman Sisu was able to drive away evil creatures and disenchant people, but it did not affect the dragons. Kumandra split into the states of Heart, Fang, Claw, Spine and Tail, and the magic dragon stone was kept in the land of the Heart, which was ruled by Raya’s father. He dreamed of uniting the lands, but due to human greed and envy, the artifact shattered. The ruler of each country got hold of a shard, and the druuns again began to dominate undividedly.
Several years later, Raya and her faithful companion Tuk-Tuk fearlessly roam across the scorched desert, exploring the remaining rivers and not losing hope of finding the last dragon – the last hope of people to defeat the Druuns.

It’s been about 6 hours after watching this cartoon, but I’m still impressed. Somehow imperceptibly for me this time the end credits came. It so happened that I fell in love with the tape almost from the first frames. Either I was in a good mood, or the story hit right on target … Most likely, both conditions were met.
Plot. Fearless warrior Raya is the keeper of the magic stone that protects the inhabitants of the kingdom of Kumandra from the terrible monsters of the Druun. The problem is that Kumandra has long been divided into 5 territories, each of which is ruled by its own leader. The people of the other four clans envy the ‘Heart’ (this is the name of the land where the stone is located), because they consider this part of the kingdom the richest and most prosperous …
The storyline is well developed. Each seemingly insignificant episode moves the story forward and helps the viewer navigate a world unfamiliar to him. The authors gradually introduce new characters who quickly become truly familiar. I have never considered myself a sentimental person, but unusual cute creatures and soulful dialogues were able to move me several times. The ending of the picture may seem overly embellished, but here it is important not to forget that the orientation is primarily aimed at children.
Atmosphere. Colossal work has been done in this direction. The creators not only invented a complex thoughtful world inhabited by different peoples and extraordinary creatures, but also told an amusing background and rules by which this magical country lives. Gorgeous animation, colorful graphics and increased attention to detail will impress even the most fastidious person.
Humor. It is unlikely that you will laugh until you drop, but the cartoon boasts at least a few funny moments. The scene of Raya’s meeting with the dragon and the episode in which the main character is surprised at the tricks of the child-cheater can easily cheer you up.
Music. For the excellent work with music, I want to thank the wonderful composer James Newton Howard. It is difficult to single out any one track, they are all beautiful. Let it be ‘Running on Raindrops’. In the end credits I really liked the song ‘Lead the Way’ (Dzheney Aiko).
Bottom line. The cartoon carries a huge amount of wise thoughts, over which every viewer should think about. The feed touches on topical adult topics, but at the same time makes them understandable and accessible to children. I strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with this cartoon, which is likely to appeal to both adults and children.
