Mink is the love-child of a dragon and a dragon-slayer. Mink and her friends have very weird adventures on Mink's quest to be human. The story is unique because the art style constantly switches between normal proportions and super-deformed proportions. Written by

Dragon Half was planned as a 4 episode OVA series but the first two 25-minute videos (released in Japan on March 26 and May 25, 1993) bombed and the final two were never made. Despite the story being incomplete, Dragon Half actually has a large cult following in America. This prompted ADV into enquiring about a possible co-funding project to see it's completion but nothing ever materialized over the years. See more »
This video is just an absolute hoot. Overall, next to the Slayers: Dragonslave and the vastly underrated Shinesman OAV dub, this is the most belly-achingly silly anime tape I've ever seen. From the self absorbed part time dragon slayer, part time teen idol Dick Saucer, to he ever so cute Mink, to the adorably silly Super Deformed modes, to Dug Fin complaining about how they cut out his part in the first episode, this one will just have you rolling on the floor.
And that's not even getting to the danceably silly, nutty, kooky, ending theme song. It's Beethoven in a way you've never heard before. I've heard that the only point of the lyrics was to match the melody and rhythm of the song, and I believe that! Absolutely silly.
