Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai (2020 Remake) Development Footage


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

As I posted on nyaa:

There was a Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai 2020 anime/game livestream that showcased information on the new anime remake and the 3 games coming out. I have taken the 2 anime development trailers they have showcased from the nearly 3 hour livestream, and included just the Dai anime remake development trailers for your convenience.

The first one was about 45 seconds and at 1920x1080.
The second one was 1m30s and I had to crop it to show just the development trailer because part of the video screen showed the team talking about a certain scene, so I cropped that out. Luckily the trailer screen was actually a good size, so the quality is good, but I had to downsize it to 1280x720.

Anyways, enjoy!

Here is the MEGA link to the folder:

Here's the scorpion scene from episode 2 in the 1991 TV series:

Here's about that same scene in the 2020 remake:

The quality has improved a LOT. I like the new animation.

Pretty excited.  I'm sad that Sugiyama isn't doing the music for the new series though.  His OPs were amazing.  Still, I'll make do.

Gonna try to read all the manga this summer (I'm about 25% in a week), then I'll watch the anime, and be all ready for this to never come to the US.

^ literally every new anime is licensed on some streaming platform nowadays, most of the time before it’s aired. You would be shocked at the absolute trash we get. This will 100% come out. The only question is who will license it.

The video game is more in doubt, if anything.

Toei Animation US already released an English subtitled trailer of the the 15 second teaser on YouTube. Obviously, Crunchyroll will get it. It was the same for the Digimon Adventure remake. There was an English subtitled teaser for it months back, and then Crunchyroll got that. They get most of Toei's stuff simulcasted.

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.

Long time no see, Mimas. Also, btw,

On Sunday, June 21 at 8pm JST (4am US PST same day) a Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" special livestream called "Dai-suki TV #1" will be on YouTube. Atsumi Tanezaki, who plays the role of Dai, will also appear! Please stay tuned.

Note: Dai-suki is a pun on Dai's name, and the word Daisuki which means "like" or "love" (ex I love anime)

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

Opening song preview, which Twitter has translated as "Macaroni Pencils" 😆.

Do I have to watch the original Dai anime or manga before this?
It’s a remake so I assume not.
From what I've seen of it so far, eal is right. It may not be shot for shot, but it's 100% remake. Watched some 20+ minutes of it so far and I recalled every scene/event.

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).

Watched the first episode today.  It was pretty good.  Looks nice and is very playful like the old show.
Yep. Caught it between my kids soccer games today. Was cute.

It was a lot of fun, my two youngest really enjoyed it. They did cut out that scene tho.
Haha, we talked about that on the podcast, that they'd likely do that.

The entire scene was different, curious to know if it was to avoid that or because they seemed to be speeding up the pace.

I think they're going more kid-friendly in general, but also the way they set it up, the scene was completely unnecessary anyway. They new that party was on a boat, they could keep seeing it.

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.
