Anime DVD Review

Oh my! How incredibly silly, and yet, so very very funny. Dragon Half is for those who do not take anime (or anything else for that matter) seriously. It mocks the conventions of both anime and the fantasy genre (for example, a villain character, dramatically surrounded by smoke, with a caption pointing to it saying 'Dry Ice' and in another shot you can see a bucket of dry ice behind him) while intentionally poking fun at shows like Slayers (itself a parody of Lodoss War).

The story (there's a story in this mess?) abounds with bizarre interactions, insane dialogue, scantily clad women, gratuitous explosions, and ridiculous violence. The animation style changes constantly, becoming more cartoony when things are particularly wacky. It's as if Project Ako took on the fantasy genre instead of Sci-Fi. Dragon Half is one of those strange titles, like Ping Pong Club, where you can't describe it, you just have to see it. Our only complaint is that it's too short!
