Dragon Half DVD

Ohayo~ ….it’s now 6 am Hawaiian ^^!~! This may be becoming sort of a new tradition here …well of course it’s up to YOU the reader to decide as this is indeed just the third helping of full anime videos featured here =). Of course all blog writers keep an earnest eye and ear out for what garners attention and what doesn’t, so please let me know if this tickles ~* your fancy ^^.

Sooo what to do in the whee early morning hours???

Watch Dragon Half of course ヽ(。´▽`。)ノ。。!!

This is so much one of my most favorite anime ever!! I can’t even begin to tell you how much it continues to crack me up no matter how many times I’ve watched it…(^q^)!

So many funny oddities and unique things make it so enjoyable, the writing so offbeat and awesome~! And just the way the characters are drawn is sure to make you chuckle but they’re also a very important aspect to how the story is told. Dragon Half is split into just two separate episodes with a running time of approximately 50 minutes. Here I’ve included the original Japanese dialog w/ English subtitles which I humbly feel is usually the ideal way to experience anime whether you’re a native speaker of the original language or not as the original nuances of the characters typically shine through that much more sincere =).

Although Dragon Half appears to be long out of print, there are numerous sellers associated with Amazon.com whom have both newly sealed as well as used copies to sell!

Here’s a link to sellers associated with Amazon.com whom have available copies of Dragon Half on DVD to sell. Please read the descriptions carefully first as they detail the condition of the DVD being offered. I ended up purchasing a newly sealed copy just to be safe though. =)

~Mink’s Voyage~

~The Brutal, Killer Martial Arts Tournament~

~36 Reasons why I ♥ Dragon Half ( ̄▽ ̄) ~

1.

Vlcsnap-97936

Because Mink’s father is a knight!…..

2.

Vlcsnap-97985

…and Mink’s mom is a dragon!

3.

Vlcsnap-100246

And Mink’s future father was actually sent to kill Mink’s future mom….but they got married instead. Awwwww♥ love can appear so unexpectedly ne~.

4.

Vlcsnap-97606

Because Dick Saucer is soooooo….


…*dreamy* ………(゜∀゜)………♥

5.

Vlcsnap-107202

Because the King looks like a manapua! \(^o^)/☆….

6.

Vlcsnap-99123

…and Dick Saucer is known as “the sausage guy” back at home.

7.

Vlcsnap-106101

Because poison darts should never be inhaled “accidentally!” 😮

8.

Vlcsnap-98641

And family domestics never looked so *cute!!*!~!

Vlcsnap-98059

Awwww!~!

Vlcsnap-98087

And isn’t Mink’s mom so adorable in human form! Now stop beating up daddy~! =O

9.

Vlcsnap-102484

Because of how the awesome animation quickly and seamlessly moves between dead on serious!!….

Vlcsnap-102519

…to over the top wacky~!! 😛 in order to depict silly dialog at any given moment! ( ̄▽ ̄)!~!

10.

Vlcsnap-104556

And how Dick Saucer sings about slaying dragons on his most coveted CDs!

11.

Vlcsnap-112385

Then there are those questionable “fighting” tactics which are always abound!….(tickling?!!! no fair! (・д・`*)!!)

12.

Vlcsnap-139877

And “luckily” Damaramu’s brain is….erm very “compact”….

Vlcsnap-139565

…thus allowing for ultimate survival!, even through something like this!!…(^q^)

13.

Vlcsnap-145404

And even a ferocious little fellow like this one….

Vlcsnap-146065

…can be seduced by….

Vlcsnap-146285

…the old candy trick~! =P

14.

Vlcsnap-109656

And a well timed (she was about it kick his butt!), Dick Saucer ticket….

Vlcsnap-109148

…can save a life! ^^

Vlcsnap-108969


While making a girl oh so so *happy*! (*´∀`*)♥

15.

Vlcsnap-100999

And how that most scary scary figure Rosario uses dry ice to make his, um grand entrance!

Vlcsnap-104162

..and exit. 😮

16.

Vlcsnap-110628

To catch a glimpse of Princess Vina providing a really really accurate “description” of her….

Vlcsnap-100670

…husband. Yep! the resemblance is uncanny!

17.

Vlcsnap-118592

And how Princess Vina is actually a 1/2 slime which means…

Vlcsnap-118954

…their first child is…..um slime. 😮 Funny the child must take after their father. Manapua, manapua, manapua. XD

18.

Vlcsnap-116655

To learn how Mink’s father is actually sukebe! (;´□`)

19.

Vlcsnap-124290

And how sometimes even the best laid evil plans go awry!…

Vlcsnap-103608

..and through it all luckily we get to witness numerous diabolical & sinister plots deep into their staging phase. Such a rare treat! =)~!~!

20.

Vlcsnap-106310

In hindsight though, using 3 poison darts does seem a bit excessive. 😮

21.

Vlcsnap-120336

And using the old “you have a hole in your pants!” trick will never grow weary ever!…I guess. XD

22.

Vlcsnap-123076

Because even dragon half girls have…

Vlcsnap-122997

..bellybuttons, despite the whole being hatched thingie~! =)

23.

Vlcsnap-107764

And not even Cinderella’s storyline is left alone! 😮

24.

Vlcsnap-100898

O~h! and anger management was never more needed I’m afraid!

25.

Vlcsnap-105534

And that thing falling from the sky = stew~….

Vlcsnap-105587

…and dinner was never this simple! Find rock, throw with extreme force and enjoy! Don’t forget to notify the family, your relatives and everyone you know! XD

26.

Vlcsnap-145009

Because anything being called “The Brutal, Killer Martial Arts Tournament” is must-see-t.v.!

27.

Vlcsnap-138615

And how many anime use Ex-Lax so freely? With the ensuing Ex-Lax dance being the absolute best!!!!

Vlcsnap-137527

Except for maybe if you’re Mr. Saucer who got it from an unaware and totally *innocent* Dragon Half~. =)

28.

Vlcsnap-112515

However an inadvertent *kiss* of the one you most adore, you know the “sausage” guy…

Vlcsnap-113015

…while initially seeming like total *bliss*, could later lead to…

Vlcsnap-116420

…your very best friend wanting that said *kiss* from the “sausage guy” for herself as well…in the form of an “indirect” one from your very lips! (゜Д゜;)!!

29.

Vlcsnap-130547

Because love is blind, and not even a sword drawn towards you can stop true *love* ne~. 😮

30.

Vlcsnap-133601

And we were oh so close to finding out what exactly a “sausage spe…” no I mean “Saucer Special” is …if only not for his impending concert which calls~. :/

31.

Vlcsnap-141519

And then there’s the “dreaded” finger water gun! (._.;)

32.

Vlcsnap-135693

Or your very dear friend offering to sell you to a complete stranger for 10,000 Gamels in order to get to see the sausage guy. Oh dear where is the loyalty in true friendship?! lol! =O

33.

Vlcsnap-144096

And surely everyone can appreciate a little bit of perfectly timed/ drawn “animated” *seduction*~. =)

34.

Ex-Lax in progress...(^q^)

And just how one Dick Saucer makes me all *misty* eyed ………(゜∀゜)………。Whoops! wrong picture! 😛

35.

Vlcsnap-148897

And never has the removal….

Vlcsnap-149110


..or zapping of a girl’s top….

Vlcsnap-149617


..led to soooo much anger! Which can be ….

Vlcsnap-149919


…oh quite hazardous to one’s well being!


Just don’t forget!….

Vlcsnap-150293


..to cover up~!…(^q^)

36.

Dragon Half (ending credits theme subtitled)

And last but certainly not least is the ending theme song which is soooooo strange that it’s awesomely cute! Well strange really but who’d ever imagine that Beethoven could be utilized in such a way before! Hmm….click play above to learn what all the fuss is about “eggs.” にゃんにゃん。

    Slightly off-topic.
    RE: ” original Japanese dialog w/ English subtitles which I humbly feel is usually the ideal way to experience anime ”

    I agree. The emotions are always better in anime and cinema when listening to the original Japanese, even if I cannot understand the language …
    … the HEART understands … (Denny chokes up a little).

    I am entrusting you to verify if older anime with subtitles are faithfully translated. I realize that not everything can be exactly translated, particularly slang phrases or expressions. I like all the movies updated and translated by the Animego company. They use color coded subtitles and provide footnotes and references for cultural things which may be difficult to translate.

    • Definitely check out Dragon Half, it’s hands down one of the funniest anime ever created! !!! And these subtitles are done really well too. The entirety of both parts are posted near atop this post, I guarantee you’ll laugh watching them ^^.

      Oh yes the originals are always best and here you’ve reasoned just why better than I have =) ….the emotions, those nuances just so much better that way.
