This is a review of The first episode of the specials, it will be updated when more are out. the specials aren't connected to the story. So far i was only able to see the first one which Showed some fourth-wall breaking, Chibi-forms of the three main characters Kanna, Tohru and Kobayashi, and it was about 'Kobayashi-san's OO dragon', the characters were filling in the 'OO's, it was Funny to watch, 2 minutes long. It's as cute and Funny as the original series is. This review will be updated when more specials are out, i found this one to be really cute and funny at
the same time because Kanna and Tohru, but that's subjective, if you liked the series, be sure to watch these specials once you can. they're Very entertaining and short. Their narrative and Animation are Incredibly similar to Haruhi-chan no yuutsu, so i can only guess it was inspired by that and is animated by Kyoani, same as the original series.
♡ I'll review the Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon Specials from my point of view so, please enjoy!
STORY: 7 (good)* The story was fitting for the specials of the TV series, it brought joy and enjoyment, at the same time reviving some good memories from the parent story.
ART: 10 (outstanding)* The perfect score is rightfully deserved, as expected from the studio, Kyoto Animations. I may dare to say that the art in this anime is a big part of why you
would want to add it to your collection.
SOUND: 7 (good)* I will comment mostly about the voice actors, as there is little to no music, apart from the ED which is simple and nice. First of all, Kanna's voice is the one I love the most, Maria Naganawa does a great job even with little experience. Second of all, Tooru's voice is well executed and on point, complimenting Kobayashi's, which fits the character very well.
CHARACTER: 9 (great)* The characters are really cliché, but unique and enjoyable in their own way. We got the average gal that works a lot, maid that is in love with her master, cute loli, and not lastly a clumsy overly-affectionate hottie ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).
OVERALL: good to very good* I think this specials are really nice if you like an easy-going, heart-warming and light-hearted anime.
I left the ENJOYMENT: 10 (♡)* part at last because I think this one really depends on the person. In this review I tried to be as objective as possible, but I really can't help but give a perfect ten to the enjoyment. This type of anime, really calms me down and makes me stop for a moment to just enjoy the beautiful simplicity of life.
So Kobayashi-san chi no maid dragon is going to end soon. It was an enjoyable ride, the characters, the story and the art was good. I think it deserves a second season, but oh well this is not the place to rant about it.
The fans of the show are getting a special treat in the form of seven special episodes. Each of them last about 2 minutes and they are hilarious! No stories(I've only seen the first episode though), no character developments, just pure comedy. You get to see some comical moments, laughs and then there's also plenty of Kanna-chan. She's probably the main reason
why I liked watching Dragon-maid so much, so it's no surprise here.
Should you watch it? Definitely yes! But make sure to watch the original series before it or else the specials won't make much sense. You need a reason to watch it? Only one word, Kanna-chan. Need I say more?
After watching the first episode. It really made me gleam with joy! As in per introduction that it was filled by "OO"'s standing for "something", both Tooru and Kanna try to replace the "OO"'s with random ideas, in which they try to re-enact it. The only thing what I would recommend for this series to improve is more characters, because we are missing out some. It may give us a comedic effect! And also to give what the original series gave us as being comedic, for example the pixelated objects (That is either inappropriate or not-to-be-seen stuff) which actually gives curiosity to the viewers, but
also giving them a laugh of a life-time.
