Our Review : Dragon Half is one of the older anime shows that you find yourself loving for the humour, plot(-holed like swiss cheese), character personalities but not much in the aspect of imagery.
The animation was well done at the time it came out, and still better than half the things I end up finding on TV, but as of recent days it would either be considered of a "skilled wannabe" or "classic" quality depending on your tastes. Duller than what's around nowadays, in anotherwords.
Although it kept me vastly entertained (and somehow made my supply of pocky disappear), I find the fact that after only two episodes it's done and over with to be extremely disappointing - especially at where it left off. It's like diving into the ocean and then being yanked out by a rope as soon as your swim suit became wet.
The entirety of this series (and I use that term loosely!) has enough to pull you in, but due to longevity (or lackthereof) not much to keep you...
I couldn't wholeheartedly reccomend this to anyone who's a hardcore anime fan, but if you don't mind cliffhangers or just want some time to burn whilest awaiting your ultimate doom at your current family reunion, a day you'll mostly likely wipe all memory of anyways, then go for it! (You'll need all the laughs it can provide if your situation for viewing is of the latter...)
Also, a nice rainy-day possibility for dragon fans everywhere - atleast, those still with power.
