Just a normal day in Japan.
Yay time for adorable dragons! Thank you KyoAni!
Easily one of the coolest scenes so far!
The last time KyoAni tackled a manga adaptation was back in the day with Nichijou which I reviewed and loved to death! It managed to balance cute scenes and it had some of the most hilarious off the wall scenes ever, but I’ve only managed to read the first two chapters of Kobayashi-san chi no Maid Dragon back when I heard the news of it getting an anime and so far with these two episodes they seem to be following the manga, so the fans of the original source material should be fine with this adaptation so far, but again I don’t know anything past the second chapter. Aside from that since this is coming from KyoAni you can expect them to bring their best visuals and boy oh boy is the artwork amazing! I just love how lively all the characters feel right down to the random shop keepers and background characters, but again most of us sort of expect that level of artistic talent from them so its nothing new to fans of anything KyoAni. Oh and I loveeeee the opening and ending! So goooooooood!
Dragons with heart
As it stands right now we only have two dragon girls introduce so far with Tooru being the ultra hyper fire based dragon girl who was saved by Kobayashi who was drunk at the time? I was a bit confused on how Tooru was in the modern world, but I guess it has to do with portals or magic? Who knows and who cares all I know is Tooru is such a fun character! The only odd thing about her is probably her quick interest in Kobayashi? I mean yeah she did save Tooru’s life and now she is in her debt? Sure lets roll with that and the obvious “yuri” setup which we all know is not going to be true yuri because hey its KyoAni and they always play it safe on that kind of romance; however I think this series is going to be more in the vein of Yuru Yuri? Tooru does come off as being a Toshino Kyoko type. Besides the goofy part of her character we just gotta wait for Tooru to reveal her tragic past and why she has a distrust of humans or does she even have trust issues with random humans anymore? She was quite friendly towards the random shopkeepers in the second episode, but of course most of them gave her free food so maybe that is part of it? I’m sure we will learn more about that later.
Kanna the Renge of Dragon Maid.
Besides Tooru we meet Kanna an electric dragon in the second episode and wow I can already tell she is going to be a fan favorite and it helps that she is freaking adorable! Especially during the scenes with her meeting Kobayashi for the first time? Damn those scenes were quite hilarious and very cute! Also the short scene of Kobayashi befriending er I mean “taming” Kanna with the chocolates were great. And just like Tooru, Kanna also has her fair share of trust issues when it comes to humans, but I think Tooru is going to be there to teach Kanna that not all humans are bad? I hope? Speaking of teaching Kanna I liked watching Tooru attempt to do her best and tell Kanna about the human world? Yes cars are totally run by magic and that “catapult” OMG I could not stop laughing! Besides the teaching bits I enjoyed watching the two dragons “play” and by “play” I mean roughhousing aka going all out in some mini DBZ battle complete with crazy beam attacks and huge explosions? Good god I love when KyoAni gets to show off their action side! I seriously can’t wait to see what other fun things happen when the other dragon girls pop up in this series.
Extra Cute Dragons
Tooru is quite fun!
Proud dragon wife prepares food.
Yay drunk scenes!
Tooru practices the art of cooking no jitsu.
Ah yes gaey love <3
Kanna can see you all claiming her as your dragon waifu.
Dragons sure love chocolate.
Nap time is a great time.
Wow KyoAni has done it again! When it comes to cute girls doing cute things and WTF comedy they standout as one of the best, but I think most prefer their series stuff like Hibike! Euphonium? Whatever one you prefer is up to you! Personally I’m more of a fan of their silly light hearted stuff like Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai, Lucky☆Star, Nichijou? Then again Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon does show some promise that it could get serious later? Id guess whenever Tooru reveals her past or has to eventually return to the magical dragon world. So what dragon is your favorite from these two episodes? I’m gonna bet a huge majority of people watching will like Kanna a bit more than Tooru since she leans more on the hyper side which I know most find annoying about some characters; however I don’t think Tooru is that hyper especially in the second episode where she shows off her calmer side. So yeah I had a lot of fun with these two episodes and I can’t wait to see more because its going to easily become my second favorite winter anime.
