I have only seen the first tape in this series, and I will only get to see the first tape. The second tape was never released here, and the third tape was such a flop they don't sell it at all anymore, I don't think. However, the second tape is available, but only in Japanese, no subtitles.
Dragon Half has to be the cookiest love story (well... kind of) that I have seen yet. A dragon and a dragon slayer fall in love, and get married. They have a girl, named Mink. Mink therefore would be half dragon and half human.
There are some other pretty odd characters in this story, too. These include Mappy, a gerbil mouse thing that can transform into a huge gerbil mouse thing. There is a princess, who is after the famous Dick Saucer, a half Merman half human singer. (this is not mentioned in the first tape, I have found this out through other various sources.) Mink is also after this handsome devil!! ^_^ Mink is on a journey not only to get Dick Saucer, but to find a people-potion, which will turn her into a human.
5/5 Cute story!
4/5 Uh.. well, sometimes you just feel as if the characters are there soley for the purpose of comic relief. Which they are.
4/5 This is NOT a deep, meaningful show, Neon Genesis Evangelion fans.
5/5 Oh my dear lord, there is the CUTEST rendition of Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 (I think) in the end. Papara funi funi papara hoe hoe papara funi funi TAMAGO! It's real name is "My Omlette."
5/5 Some weird scenes, but not too sexual.
4/5 A scene at the very last moment of the show. Mink exposes all.... kinda.
5/5 Senseless violene that makes.... no sense!!
5/5 Such cute SD scenes!
4/5 Swearing, but nothing so overwhelming you can't handle it.
5/5 I liked it a lot, it was very very cute!
Totals: 46/50, or most excellent!
I LOVE DRAGON HALF!! It is one of the silliest, cutest, funniest, and stupid... well, not stupid, but takes no thinking to get the story. (if you're really intelligent, you might get bored by utter stupidity.) Mink is the half-dragon. Red dragon, too. Those are tough, and they breathe fire, and they... I don't really know. Only one tape is available to me, because I don't know Japanese. Retail is about 26.95, only available in subtitled format. Sorry, dubbers. Lufa, Pia, Damaramu, Rosaio, King Civa, (that's a king?) Princess Vina, Roshi, Dick Saucer, and a bunch of other crazy characters that really are just simply hilarious.
Oh.. update! Update! Dragon Half has recently become available DUBBED!! Yes, DUBBED!! Scratch the 'sorry, dubbers'. And.. you know what? Soon, very soon, I shall get the fansubbed.
And you know WHAT?? I shall attempt to post them, make them available to you people out there! You can thank me when I get them up... -_^ We will try to get some fansubbed things up. It's a goo thing, okay?
So, Mink wants to become human. Why? So Saucer will fall in love with her! DUH! But. Mink's got problems. So, she's off to find the legendary "peedo potion". Or, People Potion. UYAY!!
5/5 Lovely story, utterly stupid
5/5 You need development? You get just plently and GOO!!!!!!!
5/5 I must say, loverly plot. GYAH!
5/5 Love "My Omelette"
5/5 None.. but you know what Minky wants... AN OMELETTE!!
4/5 A two second shot of Mink topless at the end. (minky flash! (think cutey honey) It isn't that bad at all, really short. PLEASE don't let THIS stop YOU from SEEING this MOVIE! It is REALLY good.
4/5 Senseless and dumb! But funny and STUPID!
5/5 Does have nice animation, but Mink and the others frequently turn SD (super deformed) That's when they get all short and stubby and REALLY CUTE!
5/5 Damaramu's got a potty mouth.
5/5 Good senseless and brainless fun!
Totals: 48/50, or MOST RADICAL!!!
TOTALS TOGETHER : 47/50 IT'S A KEEPER!! WELL WORTH THE $26 YOU DISH OUT!

Dragon Half is a funny, weird comedy that is recommended for viewers who like "fun" shows. It doesn't really have a point to it, it's just for humor. It has a very brief nude shot right at the end, and Mink has kind of a perv for a father. There's a little bit of swearing and blood as well. We recommend you see it subbed.
