Dragon Pink (ドラゴンピンク?) is a three part erotic anime OVA series, released by Pink Pineapple in 1994, based on an incomplete manga by Itoyoko 1990 with four volumes released which has been translated and released in Spanish by Norma Comics only in Spain. The three OVA episodes are based on the first chapters of Volume 1 of the manga. It was also made into an adult computer game Dragon Pink - The Zero Castle 1992.

The story takes place in a world modeled after (and evidently parodying) that of a generic computer role-playing game. The title character is a catgirl slave named Pink, who belongs to a "hero" named Santa. They are accompanied by an axe-wielding barbarian warrior named Bobo and a female elf mage named (depending on translation) either Pias or Pierce. The series depicts their adventures, and sexual escapades, as they travel around the world embarking on various quests.

The feel of the story is distinctly humorous: for example, it is revealed that Pink is a human woman who was transformed into a catgirl after donning the "Cursed Panties of Torinaga." Much of the humor is broad and goofy in nature, but is also good-natured in its portrayal of the main characters.

The adventures/quests are not overwhelmingly imaginative in nature, with Pink frequently serving as a damsel in distress while the barbarian, hero and mage act out their roles true to the dynamics of role playing games. As is typical of hentai, many of the damsel in distress scenes have a distinct sexual bondage element, as Pink is almost always bound nude and frequently sexually molested in various ways by her captors. The plotting and characterization are not simply devices to string the sex scenes together, but actually build a coherent story.


Plot Summary

Episode 1: It begins with Pink being used as a lure to keep a lusty monster off guard in a cave. The group's mission is to destroy the monster and collect the cursed sword that it guards. After they succeed, the group goes to town where Pink wants to shop and get some new clothes. The shopkeeper is angered by a "cat-slut" coming in his store and yells at her to get out. Pink runs back to the inn, crying from the shopkeeper's rude behavior. Santa follows her and comforts her (amongst other things) before they rest.

That night, Santa goes out to hunt something to make Pink some clothing. Much to his dismay, the first thing he encounters turns out to be a hell tiger. Bobo appears and helps him kill it, demonstrating he is always there for him. He gives Pink a dress made from the hell tiger's fur the next morning, demonstrating how much he cares for her. As they leave the inn, the party is surrounded by guards, and taken before the queen. There they are accused for being responsible for some girls who have gone missing recently, as Santa and Bobo were both seen outside the night before. They state their innocence, and agree to embark on a quest to find the missing girls.

A new mission begins, as the party vows to rescue the missing girls, not knowing something very dangerous is going to be in their way. Luckily they find the girls, but also encounter the villain behind the kidnaping, a witch demon. Santa and the party fight hard to defeat her, but the witch has something up her sleeve—a doll that regenerates her energy. The party manages to break the doll, and Santa kills her by using his sword on an orb, which is connected to the witch. The party is victorious and they rescue the captured girls.

Episode 2: Santa and the gang use Pink as bait to defeat a green monster that looks like a pile of goopy slime, and in so doing get an item worth a lot of money. Pink pulls the cart from the forest where they fought the monster to the nearest town, where she slides down a hill and ends up ramming them all into a tree. In the process, Santa's purse—which holds the item—is lost.

Due to their find, they decide to treat themselves to a fancy, expensive dinner. When it comes time for the check, of course, Santa finds all his money is gone. Pink is left as collateral and he goes to find some quick way to earn money. They then collect the "honey" of a Honey Moon Fairy, which is enough to buy Pink back.

When they return to the shop, however, the owner—thinking they had skipped town—has already gone and sold Pink! She is going to be sacrificed to the Water Goddess of a nearby town. The goddess usually enters her sacrifices and takes their life, but she decides to "play" with Pink before devouring her. Just as she finishes, though, Santa arrives in the nick of time to fight the evil water monster. It is a tough battle but Bobo and Santa finally deliver the final blows to destroy her and regain Pink.

Episode 3: While walking through a forest, Santa and the others encounter a demon girl being raped by a giant monster. They defeat the monster and the girl tells the crew that her family and friends are being held captive in a nearby cave filled with treasure.

The adventure from that point on is a cross between a D&D style dungeon crawl and Scooby Doo haunted house. Santa ties a leash on Pink so she can lead the way (and get attacked first by any monsters). It's Santa that walks right into the first trap, however, taking Pink with him. Pierce & Bobo are attacked by "Slave Knights," demonic armored warriors with an innocent young girl at their core.

Meanwhile, Santa & Pink are captured and molested, respectively, by "Nymphomania, The Slave Queen," a naga-esque female. Pink & Santa are rescued by Pierce & Bobo, Santa uses a special technique to destroy Nymphomania, and while Santa & Co. rescue the kidnapped girls, the dungeon collapses before they can make off with the treasure.


Dragon Pink's manga version presented some characters and events that were not animated then for the OVA. For example, it explained how Pink became cursed transforming her body into a cat girl when she takes a cat suit that the party found in a chest after defeating a monster in the most RPG typical lines. After volume 2, in which Bobo and Pierce quit the quest when Santa and Pink suddenly disappeared and Pierce gave birth to a little baby, new companions for Pink and Santa like the cursed princess Delta, who can change herself to an attractive, naked and powerful woman while she is covered by blood, Anne, a young and vital girl who has a crush on Santa and uses a whip or the sisters Silver and Gold, who seeks the key that seems to be Pink. Surprisingly, the manga version eventually changes from a humour RPG hentai parody to a darker from the first volumes to the last.

Additional information

  • The character's names are rather obvious puns: Santa, being anything but a "Saint"; "Pierce the Elf" lending itself to a waggish joke; Bobo being a Japanese term for wild & unruly hair (particularly pubic hair); and Pink can be taken as a reference to female genitalia. In the first manga volume, Itoyoko explained through a mini-comic how difficult was to chose a name for the main character and how she was named Pink after a suggestion of his editor.
  • The demon/dragon girl in episode three bears a striking resemblance to the main character Mink from Dragon Half. As it can be seen in the manga, Itoyoko, the author of the Dragon Pink manga, says "Thank you" to Dragon Halfs author Ryūsuke Mita for "lending" him the Mink character for that scene.
  • Music throughout the three episodes is borrowed from, and reused in, a variety of other Pink Pineapple releases.
  • In the first chapter of the manga and the OVA, it can be seen how a guy (Itoyoko himself) customized the party of his team like, for example, first Final Fantasy style.
  • The first pages of the fourth and last volume of the manga showed a guy inserting a supposed Dragon Pink game into a Super Famicom and loading a "saved game".
  • Pink herself has appeared as a cameo in other of Itoyoko's manga:
    "Shikan Byoutou" features Pink (as a normal human) as a homeless girl hired by a young and eccentric doctor as his live-in maid and reluctant test subject for some sex-based experiments. It's worth to menction that even if her new "master" (and his huge butler) use her as a toy, Pink still stays there by her own will.
    "Alice in Slaveland" introduces Pink as a grinning, agressive, leotard-clad version of Chesire Cat. She kidnaps Alice and takes her for a sex party at the Mad Hatter's place, but after forcing the nubile Alice to drink a love potion, Pink and her gang discovers too late that they are no match for Alice's lust. (The aftermatch shows a stumbling Alice picking up her clothes and leaving, while the Mad Hatter and his friend the Rabbit are reduced to dried up husks. Pink lays naked on the ground, KO'ed and with a foaming mouth.)
  • Other series of Itoyoko included "Let's Kurumi" and "Dynamite Milk".
