You know SAILOR MOON, COWBOY BEBOP and NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, but do you recall the most culty anime series of all? It was called DRAGON HALF, its four episode OVA release was canceled after just two episodes, and it's developed an enormous reputation for being funny as hell thanks to anime fans around the world.
But was this satirical saga about a half-girl, half-dragon on a quest to romance a singing dragon slayer... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined this week by author and artist Michelle Lopes to explain what the heck this wacky anime series was, how the anime medium works, and why DRAGON HALF is still remembered to this day. It's a weird and wild show packed with pop culture jokes and naughty fan service, and we think you're going to be fascinated by it.
