Review of Dragon Half (1993)

Moving picture, 53 minutes

A teenage half-dragon embarks on a quest for tickets to dragonslayer Dick Saucer’s rock concert.

Fantasy parody. A brilliant thrashing of D&D-style fantasy, with a fine performance of the final movement from Beethoven’s 7th to the end credits. Ends abruptly. There is more of the manga it’s based on.
