  1. This month's Daisuki TV has been announced. It will start at 9pm Japan time (That is 5am Pacific Daylight time) Friday. This month they will have Riku Sanjo, the original author (of the author artist pair) as guest. He will be discussing the upcoming Avan Spin Off manga that will be running in VJump. There will also be a question and answer portion. If you have a question for him and a Twitter account you can ask him by sending a Tweet with the hashtag #ダイ好きTV I can translate for anyone who has a question, but I can't post anything since I don't have a Twitter account.
  2. 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.
  3. Mine just arrived today. It is a thing of beauty. The box feels nice, thick and strong. The booklet also isn't just some flimsy extra. It is well bound and glossy. I will probably translate the interviews in it some time soon. The restoration is gorgeous, and it is fun to see the small flaws in the animation that were not obvious in the subpar video release (Not to mention that the video tapes I owned were all from Japanese video rental stores selling their old stock) and smaller TVs.
  4. Well as nice as a physical release with subtitles would be, a Netflix translation would be better than nothing. So I do hope that those English descriptions are a sign that Netflix will put out a version for North America. It would be nice though if we get a more conventional Anime company for a North American release of the upcoming anime though.
  5. I ordered mine from Rakuten using Buyee. It arrived at their facility, and we will see how long it takes to get to me now. (I did not realize until after my order that the version I purchased does not have the Rakuten bonus, but with it being nearly $100 cheaper I decided I could live without a small wooden sword keychain.)
  6. This is before log in, correct? Try without the VPN on. The VPN is only needed once you reached the login screen. Hopefully you will reach the log in screen that way. If that does not work, you might want to try disabling your firewall and seeing if that helps.
  7. Thanks, nice to have the first few minutes of the first episode video part in full size. The upgrade in animation quality, the enthusiasm of the staff, and the investment in making three games at once before the anime has even started gives me a lot of hope that we are in for a treat.

    Spam Bots

    Do you have the ability to add any more fields to the sign up page? Just a question like "Type the number one thousand " [_________] can work as a Turing test to keep out some of the Spam Bots (assuming you can check that the answer always has to be 1000 or 1,000).
  9. .ipsType_richText { color: #fff; } Have you tried this for the font color for the dark scheme? Changing that seems to change the text color when I tested using the browser's developer tools.
  10. Thanks! Looks much better!

    Something like this might help. https://www.sitepoint.com/easy-spam-prevention-using-hidden-form-fields/
  12. Is there a way to make the icons square instead of a circle? I don't see what advantage a circle gives anyone.
  13. The link does not work for me (keeps forwarding me to the mobile site.) Posting the inserts might help. But if you need to tell a blue slime from one series apart from another it might be kind of hard to help.

    Version 4

    The graphical updates are supposed to be out on September 6th, so before version 4 is even out. I would lend you mine if you were near by, LOL! You could look to see if there are cheaper used versions online though. Am I the only one who thinks that the guy in the black armor looks like an older grumpy version of the hero from DQ11?
  15. I won the Jackpot myself today! I have made it past the halfway point so the game no longer will give new spells of resurrection.
