Synopsis

Mink—the daughter of a dragon and a retired dragonslaying knight—sets out on a journey to get tickets for a concert held by Dick Saucer, world-famous teen idol and dragon hunter. Meanwhile, the corrupt king of the land is trying to take her hostage to get at her mother, and his magic-using daughter seeks to foil Mink's quest out of sheer spite.

The early and mid 90's were probably the golden age of mindless comedy in anime as far as my viewing goes. A lot of it was just as hit and miss as any other period of time, but the field was vast, filled with various styles of comedic offerings, like Compiler and Junk Boy. Dragon Half is one of these, an OVA parody of RPGs and fantasy adventures, and is the best of the sub-genre I've seen to this day, without a close second.
The plot is incredibly simple, but it's all the motivation a comedy needs. Something as easy as a half dragon read more

"Funniest anime ever made". When one hears the name Dragon Half, this is normally a claim that isn't too far away. Even though I can't fully say as of yet that I agree; this short OVA does make a strong drive to the title and the funny thing is, it only took two episodes to make its mark. This is actually something to brag about since there are many titles either the same length or much longer that end up as total failures.

Dragon Half is like a well disciplined soldier; it knows exactly what its objective is, and it heads straight for it with intentions read more

Note: this is a review of the R1 DVD released by ADV films. That includes the English dub and Extras. Enjoy ;)

"Dragon Half" is a little OVA, that does a lot more then I ever thought it could. It's not the deepest most profound anime, and it's not the most exciting thing to watch either. But it's got some wild and crazy characters, and it's laugh out loud funny. Sure it's a little stupid, and a bit shallow. But it's a cute show, and hey I LOVE the dub.

This little OVA series takes place in your standard "sword and sorcery" fantasy realm, read more

Dragon Half is one of the older anime shows that you find yourself loving for the humour, plot(-holed like swiss cheese), character personalities but not much in the aspect of imagery.

The animation was well done at the time it came out, and still better than half the things I end up finding on TV, but as of recent days it would either be considered of a \"skilled wannabe\" or \"classic\" quality depending on your tastes. Duller than what\'s around nowadays, in anotherwords.

Although it kept me vastly entertained (and somehow made my supply of pocky disappear), I find the fact that after only two read more
