  1. I don't know where my video cable for it has gone so I can't test how it currently is working, but I think you got a bum device. Looking for information there is some talk of broken devices floating around the used market for a while in Japan. This person was trying to repair one. They don't seem to have made much progress but it might be worth contacting them to see if they ever figured it out. This page shows how the inside is put together and assembled, so it might help in an attempt to fix it. And as proof that the sword isn't needed, here is someone who replaced it with dum
  2. I don't think there is anything special about the pyramid. Do you have an error message you can show us?
  3. Should I unfriend you? ^_^; Are you still playing on PC? Maybe we can help you save your character?
  4. There is a second video now with more gameplay and explanation. There will be a third video as well talking about development. It seems that you are given rankings based on how fast you beat each "stage (or you could call it wave) of monsters. Probably various quests will ask for you to beat it with a certain rank I bet. The developer wanted to stress at the end that they chose this fight and set up so that it would be a challenge and that the game doesn't have to be this hard for people who aren't good at action games (Considering that both VJump Editors were unable to beat the quest).
  5. Hoping I get selected for the Beta. VJump Play has a video showing one of their staff playing the game and goes over the controls. I don't have Twitter, so I had no hope from the start.
  6. As Estorerica says, they really cleaned him up from the manga. The adaption is trying to walk a thin line in keeping the show appropriate for modern children and trying to be keep the contents of the manga. It is also believed that he is based on a famous Weekly Jump manga editor, Kazuhiko Torishima. Considering that the character from Dr. Slump that is also based off of him is also supposed to be a pervert (haven't read it) and the man originally wanted to be an editor of the Japanese edition of Playboy, I am afraid that these might be a reflection of a real person's behavior. Hopefully it wa
  7. Glad to be of service. When my copy arrives I will post a bit about it. I am still hoping that we get a licensed translation for this and the original manga. It seems Amiami is no longer selling the manga (out of stock?), but it looks like they still have 10 copies ad CD Japan. I expect there will be a reprint to respond to demand, but I don't know if the English language stores will be restocking.
  8. The artist for the manga tweeted out the whole first chapter to celebrate the first volume going on sale. Since it has been publicly released I will post my text translation for the first chapter. Read it along side the pictures in the Tweet. The translation is a bit on the literal side and could probably use some polishing, but I hope you enjoy. Edited to add in links to each image on Twitter.
  9. Oh, I was hoping you would have some insight on it. The green sound effect text as well you think is a spot color? I would imagine this was before digital proofs so would you know what would be involved in adding color to the text? (I know the text is normally glued onto the original drawing)..
  10. I was going through my computer and at one point I downloaded a scan of the first real chapter's color pages as well, which is not the same as the color pages from the new edition. The Jump version seems that have colored in the text bubbles, colored text, and colored sound effect text. So this leaves the question of what the original work looks like. Was the color added by Jump? Was it removed from the new edition? I guess without asking the publishers or them having an art exhibit we can't answer these questions.
  11. Based on the time slot that the anime is on there should not be any season breaks (Just Holiday breaks like the New Year's one that we already had.).
  12. 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!

      It's not likely to get one unless it can pick up more popularity in the US. (Would not be surprised if they get dubs in France etc. though).

      @Erdrick The Hero Yeah having a kid, this is the way I often have to watch stuff too. I said I'd make time for Dai, but it's been difficult.

      Just saw this, I retweeted it. I need to sit down and continue watching it, only got thru the first 5 episodes so far.

  13. First volume goes on sale early March and can be bought from places like Amiami.
  14. I felt these episodes were done quite well. I was glad that the pacing was a little faster (covering 4 chapters worth of content) in episode 20, so we could get the aftermath of the battle. The soundtrack was also on point these episodes as well. Talking about the soundtrack, with the CD going on sale next month the composer has been showing off a few of his tracks on Youtube lately. It should also be mentioned that the Dai Suki TV Youtube series has changed from being a once monthly live stream to a weekly per-recorded video put out right after an episode of th
