Crunchyroll has another ’90s anime for the catalog with the addition of Dragon Half. Both episodes will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience in the United States and Canada today at 4:00pm Pacific Time.
Based on the 1988-1994 manga by Ryūsuke Mita, Dragon Half debuted as a pair of OVA episodes in 1993. Shinya Sadamitsu (Birth, Shinesman) directs and writes the episodes, with Masahiro Koyama adapting Mita’s character designs.
Knights and Dragons are mortal enemies, right? And everyone knows what happens when a Knight meets a Dragon, right? Wrong! When a Knight and a Dragon meet and fall in love, the result is Mink, a precocious young female who’s half human, half dragon and all trouble! Exactly how much trouble! Well, in consideration of the fact that having vestigial wings and a tail isn’t a problem most teenage girls have to bear, one can perhaps cut our heroine a little slack. However, when Mink insists on compounding her difficulties to infinite proportions by falling in love with handsome pop star… and professional Dragon Slayer… Dick Saucer, she really has put her heart before her head! Talk about problem dates! Will this turn out to be a love story where the hero really does get the girl… on the end of his sword?
