What is the plotline of the anime?
What would happen if you came across a dragon while wandering around a drunk day? Even better: What if that dragon could transform into a woman? Even more perfect: If that dragon woman was your servant? All of this is just a small part of what happened to Kobayashi-san.
Kobayashi is a 25-year-old computer programmer. Her life is very boring and monotonous. Her boss gives her silly jobs and doesn’t appreciate her at all. At work, she only has one decent friend. One day, they go for a drink with Makoto, her favorite friend, and colleague, at the same time. After a long and pleasant night, Kobayashi leaves to go home. Kobayashi has a personality that loses himself every time she drinks, and that is the biggest reason why she experiences the event that will change her life that night. Our drunk hero forgets to get off the train she took to go home at her own stop and finds himself wandering in the forest on the mountain. While walking through the trees, she sees a wounded dragon with green skin. Although the dragon shuns Kobayashi, Kobayashi runs and hugs her, and this makes the dragon even angrier.
Kobayashi sees a sword stuck in the dragon’s back and jumps on the dragon’s back to extract it. Although the dragon says how dangerous it is, she doesn’t realize that nothing can stop a drunk Kobayashi. Although it is difficult, she manages to remove the sword. Having warmed to Kobayashi, the dragon transforms into a half-human form and they start drinking together. After a heated drunken argument, she proposes to the dragon, who says she is alone, to live together. Dragon Tohru is very happy about this. Kobayashi speaks of her maniacal love of servants and asks Tohru to be her servant. Tohru agrees without hesitation. The night ends with Kobayashi waking up on the train and thinking all she saw is a dream. Actually, everything is real!
