Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 launched in the U.S. Sept 19th and the Dragon's Den and the DQ Shrine will be bringing a â€œmonsterâ€ of a tournament that you will all want to sink your teeth into. Don't miss your chance to â€œscoutâ€ this amazing opportunity to prove that you are the Dragonâ€™s Den Monster Scout Champion!
Dragon Quest Dai answers the age worn question of what happens when you taken an Orphen, and mix it with a Dragonball.
I did not like the start, as it felt overly childish, and lacking any of the clever sophistication that made Dragonball a classic, or the more adult themed hardline questions that bolstered Orphen's succinct presentation. However, I am growing to enjoy the characters, especially everything after the Crocodine battle.
I really need to watch the original, as the spread of episodes is different (there's clearly more story presented in the original, this one being a very simplified version that trims a lot of details). See what's missing. It is a good start, and I am looking forward to Maam (funny how Dai, the child-like Hero, has companions named Maam and Popp...why? then again Madara and Papas in DQV, and the original Dai was created between V and VI, so I suppose that was a heavy influence).
Dai better end with the Princess, instead of one of those ridiculous anime tropes where no real love connection is ever realized, just teased or always a near miss, or one or another is too afraid to make any move...for 100+ episodes.
Toei Animation is asking for people to retweet and tag friends about how they are enjoying Dragon Quest Dai so far.
Since I don't have a Twitter account I am posting here to remind everyone here to show support for Dragon Quest by showing support for the anime! If you can post on Twitter, reply to their thread at least!
