I Finally watched Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid after hearing so many great things about this anime so i binged it in 2 days and i can say i loved it. This might be in the best anime of 2017 list. This anime really surprised me because i’m not into cute comedy anime but this one just wowed me. I go to anime that is more darker, mature anime so liking this really surprised me. Also a story that focuses on lesbians is not something i really go out of way to watch but i really loved that part of the anime. Because it’s not part of one or 2 characters but there a couple of characters this plot revolves around. Also seeing one character openly express the love for one of the characters and the other one doesn’t was quite interesting to watch. Also the art, animation and colors used really stood out and something that made it feel special.
For me the best thing about this anime was the characters, these characters are interesting and very amazing to watch on the screen. Also how these characters interact was something that i loved watching but gave me feelings all the time and why i watched the anime in 2 days. First You have the main character Kobayashi who likes to get drunk and when she is drunk she lets more of her emotions out. When she gets this family with the dragon maid and Kanna and she becomes the mother of this family and it’s very sweet to see her go into this role in something she is not familiar with. You see her showing what things are in this world because with them not from this world they don’t know what things are for example like cars. Also Like when she has to be a mother to Kanna and and there is a great moment when Kanna wants to go to school and she has to do school shopping and it’s so sweet to watch. The relationship with Tohru is another interesting thing with Kobayashi because of how she acts and she doesn’t express her feeling that well when she is not drunk.
Tohru is the maid dragon of this anime and i love this character she is so sweet even though she wants to kill the human race she loves Kobayashi and will do anything for her to make her happy. Also she has big boobs which is nice and that’s what makes a lot of the comedy. As a maid she wants to do everything perfect even though she doesn’t know everything about the human world and i think that’s what makes her a great character.
There is Kanna who acts as the daughter to Kobayashi and she is so adorable and she is the cutest thing ever from her look, to how she acts and her voice. She is everything and it makes the anime a 100 times better. I love her friendship at school and you can see a start of a relationship there and then you have these moments where she learning to be a daughter and you see her doing school work and going out playing with her friends or is excited to go somewhere new i loved it. Also seeing her doing these child like things and just her interactions with other characters are funny but so adorable to watch. There is another dragon character Lucoa and she has big boobs and likes showing skin but when she interacts with the other characters it is funny but she is one of the weakest characters, she does not have much substance to her and one of the weakest parts of this anime but saying that she is a fun character. Also you have 2 male characters who interact with this group but what makes them different that have this otaku lifestyle and it’s so awesome and so funny, they read manga, playing video games also one of them is a dragon, it’s great having them in the anime.
The last Episode might have been one of the best episodes but one of the most important episodes. When Tohru father comes to take her back home and when a showdown happens between father and daughter Kobayashi finally yells out how she feels about Tohru and what a fuckin moment it was. Just to hear her finally say these things really touched Tohru and why this was a great episode and was the perfect episode to end this anime.
When Tohru and Kobayashi meet for the first time we don’t get to see that until the 2nd half of the anime and doing that made it feel different, because i expected there first meeting, that Tohru fell in love with Kobayashi straight away but when we finally see it that’s not how it went down. You see Tohru in her dragon form and with a sword in her and very angry and just hates humans. Kobayashi comes along and Tohru telling her to get away until she pulls the sword out of her and then they talk and drink and that is the moment she invites Tohru to comes work for her as a maid. Also i love the art in this scenes it gives it this raw look to it. I loved this moment but the scene was great overall.
This anime was really funny and made me laugh a lot. Because it was the interaction between these characters like seeing Kobayashi petting Kanna or seeing these dragon characters interact with things they don’t know makes for some funny moments. The humor of this anime matches my kind of humor, it’s not over the top or absurd, the comedy feels natural and something i enjoy in my comedy.
But it was the touching moments of this anime that made it something special and something that stood out so far in the year 2017. There were sad moments, happy moments and funny moments. I love the moment when Kanna is going to a sports carnival and she wants Kobayashi to come and watch her and when she can’t because she has to work. Kanna is sad and is feeling down but when you see her work out her work schedule and comes to watch her you see Kanna so happy and you can’t help to feel happy in that moment. I loved the episode when they have to attend to a con and it’s so funny, one character is there to sell their manga and other characters are helping out but the funny moments are when people think Tohru is doing cosplay it’s funny as fuck.
Overall i loved this anime it just gave the feeling of being happy while watching this anime. This anime showed what a sweet, charming and adorable anime looked like. I can see myself going back and watching this anime, to me this was special and one i will remember from 2017 also Kanna is everything she is character that gives me hope for the world she is everything.
