Product Description

These two short episodes rank among the silliest anime series of all time. Years ago, a king sent his greatest knight, Ruth the Great Red Lightning Bolt, to slay a dragon; but instead of killing her, the warrior married her. Mink is the result of that union: a scantily clad redhead with horns, wings, and a short tail. (Although she commands an array of super powers, Mink didn't inherit brains from either parent.) In "Mink's Voyage" the lecherous king sends his top warriors to slay Ruth so he can marry the curvaceous dragon himself, but Mink clobbers all of them. She enters a no-holds-barred contest, hoping to win the plane fare to pop star Dick Saucer's next concert in "The Brutal, Killer Martial Arts Tournament." Mink triumphs, defeating a demon who "doesn't care about story continuity." Rated 15 Up: Violence, profanity, nudity. --Charles Solomon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The two-episode series only flaw seems to be in its shortness. It deftly lampoons everything, from cheesy hero types, to ultimate martial arts contests. There are things taken from Slayers, Record of Lodoss War, Ranma 1/2, Dragonball, and many other familiar series to anime regulars. Despite all the borrowing from other anime, it has its own very original plot.
The plot, which is really secondary to the comedy, involves Mink (the dragon half) wanting to see her hero, Pop Singer, Dick Saucer (who is also a dragon slayer) in concert. His profession does not seem to bother the naive, and totally infatuated Mink. In her way are a vengeful King (think Emperor Pilaf of Dragonball), his evil toady-like servant, his jealous sorceress daughter, Damaramu, (an incredibly inept hero type) and lastly Dick Saucer. Mink manages to defeat them all, due to her total honesty, her genuine concern for others, and some really kick-butt strength, due to her half dragon heritage.
Mink, the half-girl, half dragon, besides being cute, is a very likable, engaging character. She becomes a surprisingly well developed character in this short, but eventful series. Even the songs, (which involve Mink) are cute and funny in this series. I only wish they'd done at least a "half" season of Dragon Half. I would gladly follow the exploits of Mink, for at least that long. Check out the look between Mink, and Damaramu's bird, at the end of their first confrontation, it's just priceless.

Dragon Half is the tale of a cute half-dragon named Mink, and her hilarious journey to get her crush, idol singer and unfortunetly dragon-slayer Dick Saucer, and rid herself of the problems of having a tale, wings, and horns. This anime is truely funny, and I'd say that in about 75% of these two OAV episodes the characters are super-deformed, indeed, I'd even say there are different levels of there super-diformaty, and their voice pitches change with these levels. the show really does not take itself seriously, and will probly make any but the most serious person laugh at its sheer sillyness. However, this is not for every one. There is a very small amount of blood, some mature situations, and a scene of brief nudity at the end. However, its all so hilarious that no one should care too much. If your in the mood for some insanity and hilarity, go out and buy this as soon as possible. This OAV is worth it just for the ending theme!

Ah, if only all anime could be this funny.. but again, that's "so far"; I haven't seen a whole lot of anime. But it's got to be hard to top this one, which doesn't rely on parodies of pop culture or other anime or what-have-you to be funny.. this anime basically tells you that no one-- from the most incompetent to the strongest, bravest, most heroic person-- is safe from a stupid or embarrassing situation. I love when someone does something weird or stupid in anime-- often times their expressions and reactions are supremely goofy, and it's played to the hilt in this one. Characters suddenly become 2-3 feet tall and are deformed with tiny limbs and bugged-out eyes-- I love it!! And these silly situations are what made this movie awesome for me. Even if you don't like anime you're bound to laugh out loud at the off-the-wall humor in this one. BUY IT!!!
