Manga: Dragon Half
Not to be confused with Dragon Pink.

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 Fanservice 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.
