Dragons are some of the most powerful mythological beasts ever imagined; they are gigantic creatures that breathe fire and have strong scales. Whether depicted in movies or video games, they are massive beings that are not to be trifled with. In today’s anime, things are slightly different. The dragon in this anime is still powerful and can bring destruction down on people, but she can also transform into a human maid with horns and a tail. Instead of an expressionless demeanor and urge to attack anyone that comes close, she instead has fallen in love with a human girl. And, of course, she has a ginormous rack. All in all, it could be worse.

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: “The Strongest Maid in History, Tohru! (Well, She is a Dragon)” (Season 1, Episode 1)
There was an anime in 2015 called Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls, about a young man who lived with a bunch of different monster girls and their daily lives together. The show was a straight up ecchi anime that concentrated on pure erotic situations. The one good thing that the show had going for it were the different monster designs. Even though the show had one thing on its mind, it was still interesting to see the different creatures that would pop up.
Almost in the same vain—minus the ecchi—Interview with Monster Girls takes the premise of a world filled with these types of beings and how society would interact with them. It is an interesting idea that hopefully gets fully fleshed out as the show continues. As of the first episode, it has me intrigued, even if it does fall short on a few aspects.
