Cool looking poster with character facing back towards us. Looks bad ass. Reads synopsis, ehhh... I don't know what to think anymore.

I don't know where they are going with this but one of the characters is definitely from the short "Dragon Dentist". I didn't find that one particularly interesting.

I didn't watch the Nihon Animator Mihonichi shorts. This has my interest though.

Good to see Hayashibara back in this version.
But I was expecting a TV series, and made by khara.

A TV Special doesn't mean a short series.

o_O ?
What did you see in the original short that I didn't notice?

@Toa_of_Gallifrey Do you think this man confused "The Dragon Dentist" with "Me-me-me"?
