Editorial Reviews

So you think YOU have problems? Mink's mom is a dragon and her dad's a knight, and that's just the beginning of her list of teenage anxieties! After all, when you're part reptile and you're in love with a handsome singer who's also a dragon slayer, you just know somebody's going to get burned! So what's a lovestruck Dragon Half to do when the man of her dreams wants her head on a platter and Mom and Dad are too busy fighting to notice? Why, go to his concert all on your own, of course, even if it does mean a long journey filled with sinister villains, bizarre encounters and more strangeness than you can shake a stick at. It's a good thing Mink inherited the ability to breathe fire and wings from her mom's side of the family, because when you're half-dragon, you don't make friends easily.

I got this together with Puni Puni Poemy for the heck of it. Very late one night I figured that I would pop it in since it was short and I was about to crash. WOW! Less than a minute into it and I was laughing out loud. It just kept getting funnier and funnier! I really don't want to ruin it by saying any more. Really sucks that it was only 2 episodes cuz I just wanted more and at the end I was totaly wired and awake. I honestly think that you can't go wrong with this one specially if you get it with Puni Puni Poemy which is just as retarded, high strung and hilarious as Excel Saga.

I'm not one to enjoy wacky and insane anime. However, by chance and whim I stumbled upon this anime, and much to my delight I enjoyed it immensly. I won't go into detail as to not ruin it for others who plan on buying this anime. But, I will say that if you enjoy anime's such as Excel Saga, Slayers, and other types in the same vane. I highly recommend you pick up Dragon Half. I promise you will laugh until your gut busts open. So, crack open a beer and enjoy, because this anime is truly a must see, for anyone needing a great laugh.

But the two episodes on this disc pack a lot of punch. Funny, fast and bizarre, this anime is a real break from fantasy that takes itself too serious. Mink is a dragon half, half human-half dragon, who wants to see a concert of a dragon slayer who happens to also be a singer and the newest teen heart-throb.

Of course this singer (who is also a dragon slayer) is the same man who the King sends out to slay Mink!

Great humor packed into every second, whether you listen to it sub or dub, commentary of the second episode by Triffany Grant and Brett Weaver, cool closing song (one of the best in Japanese animation) and the normal extras.

Buy IT!

A half human and half dragon by the name of Mink falls in love with her favorite singer and entertainer Dick Saucer, whom also happens to be a dragon slayer. After finally "bumping" into him, she decides to go on a quest for a potion that will completely turn her into a human, with the intentions on winning him over. Unfortunately for Mink, a local king she had recently beaten up has hired Saucer to kill her.-summary

"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 on accomplishing the mission. From go, the anime is non stop comedy and never, ever, lets up. The interesting part about the anime is that it doesn't have to rely on sex oriented jokes or an overabundance of fan service to get a good laugh out of the viewer. Although they are used in very low supply, it never had a forced feel to me.

The laughs are provided within the dialogue, character's actions, and the sheer insanity on the screen. Most of these hilarious moments appear out of nowhere and they work most of the time. Those out there whom are big fans of characters shifting into the deformed disproportionate versions of themselves will love this one because it seems to revel in it.

This is a funny anime, but if you’re not used to Japanese style animated humor, then this probably isn't your bag; this ain't Looney Toons.
I'M NOT CONDEMNING THIS ANIME, I'm just saying "Parents, watch it before you let the kids watch it". This form of Japanese humor is much more "liberal" than the average American household is probably used to.

Now that that's over, I will say that if you collect anime, this is a great addition to your collection. This is a collection of two OVA's. My biggest beef is that it only represents half the manga storyline, which I always thought was ironic since the title of this effort is Dragon "Half". The effort was cancelled after the second OVA; the third and fourth would have completed the story. It seems that this wasn't received well in Japan at the time, but over the years it has developed a fairly large underground following. If you get a chance read the manga; I have seen an english translation online.
As is usually the case, the anime is much tamer than the manga.
