It's been a busy day over at Anime Limited, and the UK distributor has finished things off with another major announcement to close out our Friday.
The news in question is that the distributor, in conjunction with streaming service Crunchyroll, will be streaming Studio Khara's forthcoming Dragon Dentist - not just to the UK of course, but also to Iceland, Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
Anime Limited are also planning a theatrical release of the two 45-minute features which comprise the show in 2017, as well as a home video release at a later date.
The series is born from one of the studio's Japan Animator Expo shorts, and is described as follows:
The story takes place in Dragon Country.
Nonoko, the heroine, is a newly appointed dentist who protects the dragon, the guardian of the country, from tooth cavity bacteria.
One day, amid increasingly fierce battles against the neighboring country, she finds an unconscious boy soldier from the enemy country on the dragon’s tooth. His name is Bell, and he has been “resurrected” from within the tooth by the dragon, a supernatural phenomenon that legend says occurs before a major disaster.
Bell is confused about his situation. Nonoko cheers him up and takes him on as a dragon dentist. Suddenly the two face an unexpected and tremendous explosion that gives rise to countless tooth decaying bacteria.
As they face a series of fierce battles, Nonoko and Bell eventually learn to accept their fate.
This fantasy adventure, created on an epic scale like never before, will keep viewers thrilled and enamored!
The first half of Dragon Dentist is due to stream on Crunchyroll tomorrow, Saturday 18th February from 9:45PM UK time.
