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.

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Okay I've seen Slayers, Ranma, and many other fluffy animes and what do I come across. Possibly the funniest anime ever released. And like another one of my favorite animes there is a VERY limited selection of tapes. In fact this is the only tape in the series. But there is a selection of magna available but it is not, however, in English. Oh and for the record you should be warned this is a slapstick comedy type show it is not serious. In fact its less serious and more funny than the best Slayers. BUT IT CONTAINS NO PLOT AT ALL. Just warning the people that think that a show requires a plot. But all in all the funniest anime ever released ever. And I mean ever.

I bought this anime on a whim. It was cheap and I had just finished watching the first season of "The Slayers". To my surprise, this anime quickly lept into my "Top 10" list. Dragon Half really packs a mean punch when it comes to comedy, chibi animation, crazy bad guys, and did I mention comedy?

Plot? Mink, a half-human and half-dragon teenage girl just wants to be normal, eat lots of food, and swoon over her eye candy pop-star singing dragon-slaying idol Dick Saucer. But Mink just can't seem to get a break between her dad always picking on her over her infatuation with the dragon slaying singer and the handful of bad guys out to spoil her good time.

Join Mink on her quest to see Dick Saucer in concert and her vicious battle in a world martial arts tournament. This anime will have you laughing for hours and has a great replay value. Both the English and Japanese tracks are awesome. Even the ending theme itself is worth buying the DVD.

Recommended for ages 14+ for brief nudity, minor sexual themes, some blood, and a roasting pet eagle.

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.

When I saw a preview for this anime i thought, "That looks silly, its not worth renting", However, I kept coming accross high rating reviews of it so i though "mabey I'll give it a try". Boy did my opinion change fast when i saw it, its the funniest anime i have ever seen, I never lost intersest of it one minute, now I have to buy it. My only dissopointment is that they havn't made any more epesoids to continue the first 2. Put that aside and this is a trully remarkible anime.

I saw this a few months ago, and it's really what got me started liking anime. The animation is great; it switches from two different types to fit the characters. The characters themselves are hysterical. This anime was based on a manga, which was funny too. Mink, the main character, the dragon half, has a crush on pop star Dick Saucer, which is a problem because Dick is a dragon slayer. He is also pretty much an idiot. He goes around singing his theme song, which is his name, over and over. But watch out for Damaramu, the funniest character. I was in stitches when I saw this. It is definately not a waste of money, so if no one can lend it to you, buy it

I picked up this one because my books on anime claim Dragon Half is one of the best parodies ever. Was pleasantly suprised. they weren't kidding. This series pokes fun at typical story lines, juxtapositions things incorrectly and even abuses animation techniques!
First off, it's very cute. Actually designed to be too cute. The animation element of "super deformed" tiny cute characters is used excessively instead of special emphasis mini-scenes.
Second, the plot is truely wacked out. It starts out as a medival story but then is modernized with idol singers and concerts. It's like one scrambled episodes of the ever popular Slayers series with Bubble Gum Crisis. Makes no real sense, but that's it's charm.
Third, absurdity beyond limits occurs when you figure out what Dragon Half really means. It's somewhat sick, so it's not for kids under 12. It's more for teenagers and those of us who still refuse to completely grow up.
Must buy for three sorts of people:
(1) Those who love parodies
(2) Fans of the Slayers anime series
(3) Collectors of "best of class" anime
