If you’ve followed past activity of ours be it at events, listening to podcasts of ours or perhaps even reading through the archive of articles we bring you here at our blog, you’ll know we’re big fans of the work of Studio Khara.
The studio founded by Hideki Anno (creator of Neon Genesis Evangelion) was behind the Japan Anima(tor) Expo online short film project that saw the world exposed to a number of promising young talents and unique works. One of the works as part of the Japan Anima(tor) expo project was The Dragon Dentist. A project that was later expanded into a 2-part special feature. And we’re delighted to say that we can (finally) reveal the plans for our home video release of this!
It has been a while since we first announced this would be coming to home video, but today we’ll tell you what you can expect from our Blu-ray/DVD Limited Collector’s Edition set that will be available from 8th June 2020!
Read on below for all the details!
THE DRAGON DENTIST
Synopsis: What do you find between a Dragon’s Teeth?
Going into war against a dragon takes incredible courage, but even that danger pales in comparison to the hazards of young Nonoko’s job. As a Dragon Dentist, she’s charged with venturing into the jaws of the country’s dragon protector to keep its pearly canines free of plaque, decay, and other debris.
One day, Nonoko discovers an unconscious soldier between her dragon’s teeth instead of a cavity, and she finds herself caught up in a series of events that have been foretold to bring disaster to her people!
Get ready for an incredible brush with destiny that leads two young people through the mouth of hell and towards certain doom as the creators of the new EVANGELION feature films unleash an epic unlike anything you’ve seen before in THE DRAGON DENTIST!
Director: Kazuya Tsurumaki (Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion, Gunbuster, FLCL)
Originally Broadcast: 2017
