For more information

Ah! Finally, the series is here!!

I am the webmaster of the Unnoficial Website of Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken
(http://www.geocities.com/kilvan_myst/) if any one would like more information.

I have the 2nd movie in japanese only and 3rd one with english subtitles. The first movie is just a remake of episode 2-3.

I had also started to translate the 37 mangas in english, but I ended up with problems with my server and Geocities isn't very the best server to host websites either :/

Anyway, if any one would like to contact me about this series my e-mail / msn messenger is :

jedd_san@hotmail.com

Someone correct me If I am wrong. Did Akira Toriyama do the orginal character designs for the DQ games?

I believe he did not. But I could be wrong.

actually he did -- for the original DQ games... that's why Dragon Quest (1) Abel Yuusha has the Toriyama looks.

But Dai no Daibouken wasn't his design at all. The manga was by Riku Sanjo, Yujii Horii, ENIX, and one more... hehe it's been a long time.. and my mangas are continents apart from me now.
Else I would start scanlating

Sorry, my error then.

You know, many elements in the anime contributed to my liking it.

1. It's generic, but not super-generic. At least some things were unique.

Spoiler:


2. There were many humorous parts in it.

Spoiler:


3. There were even references to ecchi in it (and this was aired in 1991!)

Spoiler:


4. There was no cliffhanger ending.

Oooohh... I must say this is really an oldie.

The manga ended ages ago, er in the 20th century.

Anyway, the manga is excellent. The story is well balanced with an excellent plot, good characters and an overwhelming bad ass villian at the end of the story. The arcs are well executed and the character development is very good too.

wanna be asking about the translation -- i haven't watched it, just scanned through them,...


why is MERA translated as flare?

i think MERA is just a chant for the spell. (specifically fire spell in this case)

later there will be stronger versions of MERA, such as MERAZOMA (from the finger), MERAMI, and uhmm... i forgot hahaha...

Probably a translator or someone on the team doesn't play Dragon quest or they took a cue from the English versions of the game. There isn't a reason why Mera should be translated since it's a type of spell (Mera, Merami, Merazoma).

But "flame" does sound better than "mera", because with "flame", you know exactly what spell is being performed. If we used "mera", some people might not get it if the animation isn't good enough.

O well. For the next release, we'll watch those details.
