Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon

This is a DRASTIC departure in style and tone than KyoAni's usual content (yes, this IS animated by Kyoani, which is really the only reason I am making a thread about this), but it promises to be hilarious so I figured I'd check it out with no guarantee that I'll watch the whole thing. It looks like a return to something more akin to Lucky Star.

But anyway, it's about an anti-social office lady who gets drunk, misses her subway stop, and encounters a dragon in a forest. She then wakes up to find that, in her drunkenness, she had invited the dragon into her home as a place to stay as a maid. The dragon, btw, can take the form of a cute amine girl (of course, because Anime), and the poster implies that there are other dragon girls out there who join the cast!

Looks real moe. :3 I wonder if it's also 5-minute episodes too.

The title translates into….

Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
Episode 1

Spoiler: show

… yikes. Ugh that's my life right now. Dull, boring, a potentially killing me with monotony. I don't have stomach aches often though.
Tohru is a dragon??? :O
Aw that's a cute, energetic opening!
I wouldn't turn down a cute maid. :( I would feel guilty too,
Yaaay. :3
Woah she has great hearing!
AAaAaah hahahahaha I love the rapid editing! And she can bring it all back?!
What she has no problem cooking her own tail, chopping it and feeding it to a human?!
Woah Takiya is handsome. :) I bet he makes it worthwhile working at an office like that.
… yeah that's basically what co-workers talk about when going out for drinks. WORK. AGAIN. *___*
So she's an angry drunk as well as a happy drunk.
… this is the most UN-KYOANI show KyoAni's made in a while!! :O
So he took that whole "I'm really a dragon" thing rather well.
Awwww she brought her a present. :3
"A shirt. Now everyone will think we're lesbians!"
Deep down Kobayashi really does care about her.

Episode 1 was very enjoyable. I definitely liked it a lot more than I thought. Going to keep looking forward to this as the creator of this also did a few works I also liked.

If it's to Thane's liking, the titular dragon maid makes it very clear in episode one that she's in love with Kobayashi. I personally like how frank Tohru was with that, more anime need to be more open with bisexual and homosexual characters.

The real questions aren't how dragons exist, but what IDE Kobayashi was using when they showed some Python on her screen.

Happy to report that I like it. It may be more iconically-done, but it still shows KyoAni's fit and finish.

If Tohru wouldn't turn me into a briquette for it, I'd give her the biggest hug ....

Overall exceeded my expectations, and despite the style you can still tell it's KyoAni
Spoiler: show
The way that fat dragon flies on its tiny wings is really goofy.
Nice bit of sakuga in the OP, ok song too.
I expected the dragon to just barge in and take over, but she actually leaves when told she can't be hired. Refreshing.
Woah, her eating reminds me of Unit 01. Intentional?
Tohru is so much less tropey than I expected!
Why does she say "This world"? Isn't she from this world?
Whoah, that bar scene escalated quickly.
Aaaah so she IS from another world.
