  1. Past hour
  2. Been sitting at endgame for a while now. Just looking for players.
  3. Today
  4. Honey is eternal. Just like me.
  5. Eal has embraced his role as the new Queen of the Bees. May your rule be filled with plenty of honey.
  6. Here is the first of the interviews. Interview Riku Sanjo What was it like hearing that there was to be an anime adaption the first time? I was surprised. Kind of like, "What, you can make an anime of it?" This was because, at the time the popular works in Jump would normally get an anime adaption, but I thought that "Dai" could not be an anime since there was the original "Dragon Quest" productions that it was based on. Then, once it was decided, I was shocked at the unusual speed that everything progressed. But at the time besides writing the script for "Dai" I was also writing articles for Jump, and I was writing the articles about articles about other anime so my impression was just that "My work has kind of increased". I was spending the whole day at the Jump Editorial department so it did not feel that difficult. My entire workload was too much. I was young (laugh). How were the meetings between you and the anime staff for things like script writing and series composition? We often had meetings with me the producer, the director, and the script writer discussing the larger direction of the story. Particularly I would do things like offer suggestions for things like new characters for content that was not in the manga such animated movies. It is at this time that I met Nobutaka Nishizawa, who years later I would meet up with again when I did script writing work for Toei Animation. When I was young, the animated movie that I found the most provocative was "Mazinger Z tai Ankoku Daishōgun". So I was very excited to meet and talk with it's director. The contents of the movie "Shinsei Rokudai Shoguo" highly reflect those emotions. At the time that the anime was aired toys were also being sold, and things were exciting across various media. I liked character toys from the start so I was touched to see the characters for a series I was involved with lined up on store shelves. In discussions with the toy producers, Takara (Now known as Takara Tomy) I was asked, "Sanjo Sensei, is there any type of goods that you would like?" So I said I would like something like the Star Wars figure line that was sold overseas. Since Dai is a party battle manga I wanted to keep the taste that "everyone is the main character" and wanted a toy series that had a lot of side characters released. After hearing this they made the "Adventure Hero Selection" toy series, which is the one I am most fond of. It is the only one that has Hadler and his 6 Commanders in color. I excitedly explained to the person in charge "There is even a toy of Carbonite Frozen Han Solo" which I think even now was the hint to the Frozen Leona campaign (laugh). In the anime (Both TV series and Movies) please tell us an episode that you most closely empathized with. The memory that is most vivid is the first movie. Since we were attempting trial of "anime debut through a movie" I collaborated with the staff as we puzzled over everything starting from the plot creation. If we started from "Derupa! Iruiru!" like in the manga then we could not show Dai's heroics. If we did "Dai Explodes!!!" then the final boss was a bit weak. So to deal with these sorts of issues we had the evil idol if Hadlar as an original feature to the anime, mixing elements from the one shot stories and the serialization. With the addition of Toshiko Fujita's lively voice to the finished work, I remember feeling extremely touched watching Dai moving around. This is the only animated work of "Dai" that has not been released to any home video product before, so along with my personal emotions it makes me especially happy. Please give a message to the fans who have purchased the Blu-ray Box. Everyone, thank you for the purchase. I thank you from my heart for not forgetting Dai over all these years, and for taking this Blu-ray Box into your hands. It's been so many years since the original broadcast, and we jumped over a laser-disc and DVD release (laugh), to go straight to a Blu-ray release. It is kind of like "Dai" to do that, and I think it is thanks to all of your continual support. Please keep your emotions over from these 30 years running, and continue to support the developments of "Dai". I am counting on you.
  7. I finished Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun. Good anime. I'm excited for season 2
  8. Sorry I miss-read your reply; Yes, as "Dragon Quest". I get what you mean though, if you think it's already covered by having DW Monsters on there, that works for me.
  9. Yesterday
  10. There is a Switch port of it. Sent from my LGUS997 using Tapatalk
  11. As actually Dragon "Quest" monsters you mean, as the DW ones are there.
  12. I just thought of another one; the Switch port of the GBC version of Dragon Quest Monsters. Pls & ty.
  13. Finished up Graveyard Keeper. Wahoo, what a freaking fun ride! 48ish hours, and that was thanks to the DLC. Did about half the extra story DLC. The other DLC was a whole quality of life thing that allowed me to turn corpses into zombies and automate tasks. So I guess the time kinda balances out.
  14. I ground up to ~Lv 50. Haven't actually taken on Zoma's castle though because I lost my Switch.
  15. Not that DQ2 shouldn't be defended... But how can you defend DQ2 when you can't remember the plot or the name of the main antagonist?
  16. Here are 1300+ sound effects from the Japanese rom, you can listen thru them and see if you can find it. DQ 9 Sounds I made a pass thru them, but they all started to run together in my head so I am guessing I just missed it. The file is 110 MB
  17. Ah. I’ve been re-watching the show so the fire ants episode sprang to mind right away. I wouldn’t have been surprised if Dale ended up covered in bees at some point too.
  18. That was what I was referencing but Hulu wouldn’t let me screenshot the episode.
  19. Better than being covered in fire ants. That happens to him in one of the earlier episodes of the show after Bobby was covered in them.
  20. I feel like that would lead to a Dale Gribble situation where I get covered in bees.
  21. Ah! Thank you so much dude! I worked yesterday so I could have today off and it's been a pretty great day.
  22. Or you could try to befriend the bees.
