  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Dragon Half is a seven volume Ecchi fantasy manga, starring the titular half-human, half-dragon teenage girl Mink. It was made into a two-episode gonzo comedy anime. Basically, the story is an Affectionate Parody of fantasy as a genre, with plenty of Fan Service and self-referential humor.

Mink goes on a grand adventure as she pursues the man of her dreams, singing idol Dick Saucer. Unfortunately for Mink, Dick Saucer is a dragonslayer as well as a singer... and further complicating Mink's pursuit of the studly Saucer is Princess Vina, the daughter of the king, who also desires his attention. While a powerful sorceress, the princess has an unfortunate tendency (inherited from her mother) to turn into small blob of intelligent slime at inopportune times.

Prodded by his daughter and seeking revenge on Mink's father (a royal dragonslayer who "betrayed" the king by running off and marrying the dragon he was supposed to slay), the king sets several plots in motion against her, including sending out as an assassin a brain-dead, underfed knight who stores his lightsaber in his head; and hiring Saucer himself to slay the "disguised" dragon. Ultimately, Mink overcomes these obstacles, and finds herself competing in a fighter's tournament just for a chance to meet her idol.

Although the anime is mostly silly, the manga is both silly and epic. It also features some very strong Art Evolution.

Not to be confused with Dragon Pink, even though that story does have an expy of this story's protagonist as a cameo character.
