Elf Princess Rane

Elf Princess Rane

Go Takarada would like to believe he's the next Indiana Jones, but how much treasure can he find in his own hometown? Not to be daunted by such trivialities, he continues in his pursuit to find treasure and be famous. His luck turns up when the mystical elf princess Rane appears before him. Together, they seek magic stones and mayhem, despite their inability to communicate. This comedic adventure keeps you laughing right up past the credits.

Crazy elfs and weird creatures? This is another mad series ^^ The stories are different but the style of the series is just totally alike. The fun/cute chars and the non serious battles. Both are just two eps and I would say Elf princess Rane is the same as Dragon half except the time era.

Elf Princess Rane and Dragon Half excel at one thing: random hilarious comedy. If you appreciate laughing out loud and wackiness, this is for you!

Elf Princess Rane and Dragon Half are both short OVAs that should have more episodes. They're also funny and they have some crazy situations.

ZetaAspect

Despite how obvious of a recommendation it seems to me, I'm having a surprisingly hard time identifying similarities between Dragon Half and Elf Princess Rane.  Yes, both are early 1990s comedy shows that were cancelled after two episodes, but that hardly seems important.  Dragon Half relies on heavy parody and exaggeration of fantasy cliches ad absurdum.  Elf Princess Rane relies more on sight gags and vast amounts of energy being misdirected, generally causing utter chaos.  Pretty much the only thing they have in common is their slapstick, irreverent, carefree style of comedy.  These shows are far from intelligent or witty.  They're downright silly, and they know it.  However, they never try to force it down your throat; silly is simply the norm.  The ridiculous, nigh-absurd goings-on are almost completely ignored, which adds to the hilarity.  It is this shared environment, in which the extraordinary is ordinary, that allows them to deliver their humor so effectively, efficiently, and refreshingly.

Excel Saga

Excel Saga

F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!

shalist
Both main characters are a little on the goofy and energetic side, and both series revel in poking holes in the 'standard'--while Dragon Half focuses on Fantasy though, Excel focuses on anime and entire genres.
TheBurningCrow
Both of these are fairly high octane, although Excel Saga is a bit more extreme on that end. Both of these make a lot of parody jokes as well as they are just fun and funny in general and if you liked one, you will definately like the other.
himurakenshin
The same spontaneous, hilarios, and bizarre sort of elements can be found in dragon half and excel saga. Whether you're looking for something fun to recover from the last couple volumes of berserk manga, or just value humor and fan service over plot and consistency, i strongly recommend both excel saga and dragon half.
Wazoo
Ah, psychotic anime humor, where would I be without you? Maybe somewhere other than in this straightjacket typing an anime recommendation with my teeth. But aside from that, Excel Saga and Dragon Half are both hilarious examples of hyperactive anime comedy. They both share elements common to the genre including a fast pace, self-parody, parody of other anime genres and a healthy degree of randomness. Though Excel Sage tends to move at a faster pace and has a higher amount of randomness, those that appreciate the genre will most likely enjoy both titles.

Slayers

Slayers

Meet Lina Inverse, a mighty sorceress who fights evil in the name of... greed, gluttony and black magic?! When she meets Gourry, a swordsman whose skill with the blade is rivaled only by his stupidity, Zelgadis, a grumpy sorceror who's been turned into a golem, and Rezo, a priest known for his benevolence (with a dark secret), you know her adventures are just beginning!

Both share the same fiery and hyperactive type of main characters. They're both set in a fantasy realm, and both tend to be fast-paced and comedic.

HoshiHime

When I first watched Dragon Half I immediately thought of Slayers. Slayers is a funny fantasy anime, with dragons, fun silly characters, a slow pretty boy and black magic. Just like Dragon-Half. If you liked Dragon Half I'd really recommend watching Slayers!

MCBigman

Fantasy setting and Mink looks like some odd fusion of Lina Inverse's body and Naga's fashoin.

herano

If silly fantasy comedy is your thing, you should check Slayers and Dragon half out. Both parody classic RPGs and fantasy story's and have a strong woman in the lead. Both come from the 90ties and have similar colourful visuals and music. If you line one of them you should try the other out.

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!

Foop

Azumanga Daioh and Dragon Half are from different generations of anime. Dragon Half is a lot older, but both are about a girl who hangs out with her friends and gets into trouble. So if you are the type of person who likes watching groups of friends getting into mischief, you should watch both of these anime.

Salahare

Azumanga Daioh and Dragon Half go hand in hand together as anime reserved for those who aren't afraid to be showered in pure random slapstick! They keep you laughing every minute until the end, no matter how much your boyfriend hits you with the couch pillow whenever you suggest watching it.

Capricorn

Capricorn

kamirura
cute dragon girls? Capricorn got the same kind of story as Dragon half except that it's more serious and dramatic. Capricorn won't make you laugh as much though this one is also cute. But if you like the dragon girl theme this is absolutely something you should go for.
TheBurningCrow
Wow, how suprising to have 2 anime with a main female character who is half dragon/half human. Although Dragon Half is a bit more humorous and the story is completely different, the atmosphere is similar, and both progress through the story the same way.
