A Slice of Life, Comedy Anime

If you’ve been following anime this season no doubt you’ve come across Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid. If you’re a fan of Kyoto Animation I definitely recommend giving this a watch. KyoAni once again delivers high quality in this cute, slice of life, comedy anime. With the eighth episode airing just today it’s in a prime position to binge this weekend. You can watch Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid via Crunchyroll on their simulcast here: Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
For those looking for that little extra, on March 16, Lantis will be releasing a character song mini-album featuring six tracks staring Yuki Kuwahara as Tohru, Maria Naganawa as Kanna, Yuki Takada as Elma, and Minami Takahashi as Lucoa (including Tohru x Kanna and Tohru x Elma duets) The disk will retail for around $35 USD.

To round up some of the interesting tidbits from around the web and Japanese Twitter read on to be served.

A bonus sneak peak at the VAs dancing to the opening theme Aozora no Rhapsody by fhána.

Who’s your favorite dragon to come out of this new comedy series? I feel I can relate with the main character Kobayashi. I have a strong appreciation for classic maids and everything that comes along with them. Share your thoughts about the series with us in the comments.
