  1. From the November 2020 Newtype magazine (page 32). Note: In Japan besides the Gregorian Calendar, they count years by the Emperor's rule. Like the American use of "Millennial" the Japanese use the term to describe a time period or generation. Since last year Japan started "Reiwa" (Previously was Heisei). Note 2: The below interview and character descriptions are a bit on the "spoiler" side of things. Those who want to avoid spoilers may want to skip reading this. Dragon Quest Dai no Daibouken Every Saturday AM 9:30-10:00 TV Tokyo WEB https://dq-dai.com Twitter @DQ_DAI_anime
  2. As Dai is broadcast I expect there will be a number of interviews and articles. I will attempt to translate them for the English speaking community. Generally I will aim to keep character and place names as shown in the official translation (I might have to go back an fix some of them after the show airs to know these though). Spells and monster names I am not bothering to look up the English equivalent at this time. Newtype November 2020
  3. This episode was pretty close to the source material just with a few of the jokes cut out for time and some other small changes. I know some Japanese viewers had trouble getting used to Avan's new voice, but I thought the new actor does a very good job and sounds quite natural. I wonder if they forgot how suspicious he is supposed to sound since they got used to thinking of him as the kind teacher. The translation continued to give us some questionable choices for spell names. "Glimmer" has got to be a new low I think. I am also a little concerned they used "master" for Popp's usage of "Sensei
  4. Nothing has been officially announced yet. Yeah, there is a rumor that was on 5ch and Weibo that it will have 7 cours. They say their goal is to make it to the end. To me, the new designs look extremely different from the manga and the original anime. The look very modern to me. But everyone on the internet is going on about it having a 90s look that I just don't see. I will admit I am not fully comfortable with the new design, but I think they made the right choice in updating it so that it does not turn off modern viewers. I figure I will get used to it eventually. The cell phone ga

      Sadly it did not make it. :cry:

      Ah, sorry Mimas, I didn't see it until now.

  5. This was once again a very well done episode. It was interesting to see the changes they made from the manga this time. I thought the additional scene of Leona recovering and doing a call back to her earlier lines worked very well and gave us a bit more time seeing her as a proponent of justice. Seeing Avan and Popp was also well done, showing a bit of Avan's personality and his focus on obtaining the ultimate goal over short term wins. It might make him a little less suspicious next episode though since he has already been introduced. They have been doing a good job of keeping a fast tempo an
  6. The change of scene from the castle courtyard to a ship might have also saved money since the backgrounds are done in CG and they can probably reuse the assets of the ship later in the show, while I don't recall any intact castle courtyards past this part of the story.
  7. I would rather not hear myself on the internet! I might try and give it a listen after it goes up on Youtube, but I don't know how long I will manage before I have to turn myself off.
  8. There was no Daisuki TV for September. Instead they are having one for the day before the anime starts broadcasting, Oct. 2 8pm Japan time (4am Pacific Daylight Time).
  9. 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.
  10. 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 w
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.)
  14. 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.
  15. 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).
  17. .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.

    Something like this might help. https://www.sitepoint.com/easy-spam-prevention-using-hidden-form-fields/
  19. Is there a way to make the icons square instead of a circle? I don't see what advantage a circle gives anyone.
  20. 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?
  22. 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.

    Version 4

    Yes, both the PC and WiiU will be getting improvements in their graphics. Because of that they have changed the base PC requirement specs for the PC http://hiroba.dqx.jp/sc/topics/detail/5129a5ddcd0dcd755232baa04c231698/ For most people the need for a registration code and the software go hand in hand but in my case I play both on the WiiU and the PC so I purchase the updates for the WiiU and borrow my mother's disc for her PC updates for my PC version. This kind of sharing only makes sense if you play on more than one system.
