The Dragon Dentist / Ryū no Haisha

Genres: fantasy
Running time: 45 minutes
Objectionable content: Significant
Plot Summary: Dragons are strong enough to turn the tide in wars among nations, but they have a single weakness: their teeth. If a dragon’s tooth is plagued by strong enough cavities, the dragon cannot fight, hence why there are dragon dentists that are in charge of keeping dragon’s teeth healthy and free of any additional debris (usually random objects both big and small found between teeth). One day, a fallen soldier is found among the debris by a dentist, Nonoko, and his very existence is a foretelling of disastrous events. So of course the now-revived soldier becomes a dentist-in-training as well, with the help of Nonoko and the other dentists, amidst a war at its climax, and hidden agendas that they are not even aware of it.

As it’s not a US release, I did see a way I could watch legally. NHK World TV! I wonder what other channels I might have to allow me more access to things like this? I really need to look at the channels I have.
