  1. 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.

      The new anime is much more true to the source material (manga) than the old anime. Most of what extended the number of episodes of the original was filler. There has been some cuts from the source material for this one, but it is mostly just jokes. While I do miss some of the jokes, I think this is generally the better version.

      Dai was originally written as part of the promotional campaign for Dragon Quest IV, so it predates that game slightly. At the point we are in the story now Dragon Quest V is still yet to have gone on sale. The manga story ends around VI going on sale if I recall. Popp is really supposed to be "Popular" or better translated as "Populace", as he is supposed to represent the average person, while Dai is a super human.

  2. 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).

  3. Hey @Woodus, can we go back to the old forums? I can't even type a post without this version locking up on me. My text cursor keeps jumping around, and then it disappeared altogether. Refreshing the page didn't fix it, I had to come to this page to be able to type again.

      Interesting. I tend to only browse and not type anything on the mobile site, and tend to use Firefox on that as well. The bottom says "IPS Theme by IPSFocus", but I have a slime background. Is this the Woodus theme or the IPS theme then?

      I don't think I have had any issues. What browser are you using? I am using Firefox (that I haven't upgraded for a while).

  10. My dog Faith died today. She was less than 2 years old and suffered from canine steatitis and meningitis. It's not fair when the young ones die. http://lifelylistings.blogspot.com/2011/11/we-got-dog-faith-american-eskimo.html

      She looked adorable in the picture. My parents dog recently died as well, though they got a puppy to replace her. Of course it is never the same, but all dogs need a home.

  11. Came home from work to find that the team I am a member of in DQX no longer seems to exist. -_-;

      It was a good team, but not a great team. They were a little more rude then I would like, but they were mostly nice people. I have some of them in my friends list.

      Made the same mistake today and went to work while I needed to be discussing what team my friends and I will go to.
