    I'm surprised nobody's created a talkback thread for The Dragon Dentist 2-part special. It is premiering its English dub on the NHK World channel. via Anime News Network

    Here's the synopsis:
    The director is Kazuya Tsurumaki (FLCL, new Evangelion films) and Hideaki Anno is involved as producer.
    Part 1 aired tonight at 7:10pm EST and repeats at 1:10am, 6:10am, and 1:10pm on Saturday. Part 2 also premieres Saturday night at the same time and repeats on Sunday.

    NHK World is available over-the-air and on cable in certain markets of the US and other countries. It is also streaming live from their website.

    I've seen both episodes and thought it was really good. Unfortunately not a lot of people have gotten the opportunity to see it, so I hope a lot of people will take advantage of the NHK World showings.

    I enjoyed Part 1 so far. The animation used for the spider-like "dragons" reminded me of one of the creatures that came out of a character's head in FLCL. The premise of warriors operating on dragon teeth is a bit strange though.

    The dubbing was well done. Not sure if it was recorded in Texas or Los Angeles. Wish a North American distributor could pick this up so I could also check out the subtitled version. The Crunchyroll stream wasn't available in the US. Looking forward to Part 2 tonight!

    Well that's certainly a unique concept.
