This is a cute and funny 2 episode anime OVA that ends way too soon. It was originally to be a 4 episode OVA but the production of it was stopped midway. Don't get me wrong, even though it was so short, I still loved it. The story about Mink, a half dragon girl, and her quest to win over the dragon slayer and pop idol Dick Saucer, was hilarious. I just hope that someone picks it up again (like the Ah my goddess Series) and breaths some life into it. I would really love to see this as a series. By the way, I just love the ending song!! ;)

Funny, zany, cute, and way too short a series.
Courtland J. Carpenter | Fort Wayne, Indiana United States | 12/11/2003

"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."

"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 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"
