Synopsis

The story takes place in Dragon Country. Nonoko is a newly appointed dentist and her mission is to protect the dragon, the guardian of the country, from tooth-cavity bacteria.

One day, amid increasingly fierce battles with the neighboring country, Nonoko finds on the dragon's tooth an unconscious boy soldier from the enemy country. His name is Bell, and he has been resurrected from inside the tooth by the dragon—a supernatural phenomenon that legend says occurs before a major disaster. As Nonoko and Bell go through a series of fierce battles, they eventually learn to accept their fate.

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… no, it’s a jumbo battle dragon?

[A Ghibli Film?]

In a fantastical place called Dragon Country, there exists dragons (... duh) but more importantly, dragon dentists. These “warriors” fight the bacterial monsters thriving upon the dragon’s teeth in order to keep the dragon healthy and functioning. Why? Well, because these dragons are f*cking war machines and Dragon Country is at war with another nation. Nonoko is one such dentist and discovers a boy on top of a tooth one day. He is a soldier named Bell from the enemy country said to be reincarnated by the dragon. Sounds silly right? It read more

All right, to sum up your appointment, make sure to use mouthwash. Also, remember to floss everyday. Flossing helps get these big ass monsters out of the gaps in your teeth, which we need to kill.

TL;DR at the bottom.

Story:

With this anime comes a unique path of reincarnation involving the mythical creatures, dragons. It occurs through the teeth of the dragon, hence the anime title. With that, the requirements of a reincarnation is to have died a meaningless death, while having nothing to return to. It is a sort of redemption I think brings this anime a great uniqueness to it. When reincarnated, they are born read more

Ryuu no Haisha is a two episode special which will take you to a fictional world with wars, magic, bugs and, of course, dragons.
The female main character is Nonoko, a cheerful girl and "Dragon Dentist". This work includes... yes, you guessed right: cleaning dragon's teeth. Now, the dragons are not those kind of dragons you are used to. I sometimes wondered during the episodes whether if those dragons were really alive or they were just machines...
The dragon dentist won't clean those teeth because they are dirty. They have little creatures that look like bacterias or bugs. I won't tell you what they really are, but read more

This show reminds of the feeling I had when I watched FLCL for the first time, mixed in with shades of watching my first Ghibli movie. It was a little strange, but strangely awesome.

The art is quite clean and everything in this show was very well animated with nice art and character designs. The small cast of characters were all enjoyable. Nothing about this show had blatant fan service of any sort.

The story is not the emphasis here but is really a means to an end in order to show the fruits of this studio's labor. To read more
