It's a Dragon Half Scanlation! Wai! Ho-i! Wai~! What's Dragon Half? It's a underappreciated series by underappreciated manga artist, Mita Ryusuke. It's an RPG-ish gag manga about a half-dragon-half-human girl whose love for a popular idol/dragon-slayer leads her on a quest to find a potion that will change her fully human. Lots of stuff happens from there. It's really funny, has good characters, and the art starts great - ends greater. There was a 2-Part OVA released, which is how I was introduced into the series.
I decided to scanlate this series, releasing one chapter a week. I'm aware that there are other Dragon Half scanlations out there, but their quality left me wanting and none of them ever finished. So I decided to do my own (with some help from my wife, and eventually, other scanlators.) My knowledge of Japanese is limited, so I primarily used these translations, but sometimes I used the older scanlations or my own understandings. I did the scans myself from my old trilogy tankoubans. I did the web page too, nice and simple (even if it doesn't feel like Dragon Half.) It was a pretty fun project.
Oh, if you're going to read this scanlation, please own the originals, Mita Ryuuske deserves some support for his work. This project is meant for those who bought the comics. Buy his stuff if you can. And the Dragon Half OVA while you're at it. If you want to thank me, either visit my friend's webcomic or my other friend's cool linky blog..
