After 5000 years of existing peacefully in the wild, an herbivorous creature has his life turned upside down by a young girl who arrives at his cave and insists that he eat her. The local humans believe he is an evil dragon and hope presenting him with a sacrifice will persuade him to fight the Demon Lord on their behalf, but the 5000 year-old pacifist has no knowledge of demons and even less desire to wage war against them. His "sacrifice", on the other hand, is a blood-thirsty little psycho with extraordinary magic power; and a lie told to save the child's life leaves the newly-titled "evil dragon" traveling the land with her - and attempting to keep the destructive little brat from leaving a trail of blood and chaos in her wake!

Satisfying Conclusion?✔️Emotional?❌Actual Romance?❌Actual Comedy?✔️Fanservice/Nudity?❌What is this anime?This is one of the first shows I've seen where the synopsis actually gives perfect explanation of the show. Go read that.Did I enjoy it?I really liked it. It has the OP MC trope in an unexpected way. And almost always it's used in a comedic way, where the little girl is a psychopath. The comedy bits that made me laugh were far in between, but when they happened, they were a good 10-second laughing bout from it being so ridiculous. There isn't much of a plotline story-wise. This is just about the relationship between a pacifist dragon and a homicidal girl. The villains were generic, but they felt anything but that when interacting with the little girl and her warped personality. Some of the side-characters were so crazy, it shocked me in the way they were introduced and the role they play in such a short time (im talking about Hunter God). It has been such a long time since I've seen character's that actually felt "new" and not like revisions of former works. It's such a weird deviation from the norm and I found it refreshing. The episodes are half-length and I easily watched it in one day. There's no unnecessary drama, it's just an overall fun watch. Couldn't ask for anything more. So while this is a short show that doesn't have much depth or plot, it's just so dang cute, and has a heartwarming ending. It feels wrong to put it in a league with other high ranked shows, but even though it doesn't have a whole lot in it, everything that I saw in it was done right, and I can't find something to complain about, which is not something I can say for many shows. I also wanted to mention that this show has one of my favorite soundtracks. Great music that I enjoy that isn't the usual "anime" music. Found myself boppin to the OP's and ED's which is very rare.
