So, I made a list of references, jokes, and parodies I could think of in the Omote version of the episode. Here's what I got:

For me, the I was able to download the files after I've set the c_cc cookie set by crunchyroll.com to US (it was correctly set to CH before). You can do this either by using a command-line tool like curl or by downloading the Edit Cookies Firefox addon.
I've edited the cookie immediately before starting the download to make sure the site couldn't reset it.

Thanks, anime_layer. Considering I already paid for the download, that's fair enough.

There seem to be fair amount of people having problems with the download and there's is no official reason why downloads should not be working if you're living outside of Japan.
If you're in Japan it seems you can't even view the stream and probably can't even make the donation. In this light, I consider this a temporary workaround until crunchyroll fixes the bug.

anyone else think Druaga is going to be like .hack, where the characters are all playing in a game.
Only reason i say this is cause....
1)the OP and
2) official English website states "defeat the demon, save the kingdom-and don't forget those extra lives!"
.....or maybe they're just playing homage to the old arcade game

who knows, regardless I'm in for another 2-3 episodes

I watched up to the eyecatch on Youtube so far and while the art in general seems worse than even some early 80's series and the comedy hit and miss, I have liked the part where Utu announces his own death essentially and the parts following that with the overly long attack charge up and the "kill me" "No I don't want to" part. All classic cliches, but then again the parody seems unnecessary. I don't know, I'll finish the episode once I get back from work and we'll see what I think then.

I think it's just making fun of the game's origins, but really this early in the show who can say what they'll do.

Personally I found the show quite charming. Once it became obvious that the first episode was a parody I expected the show to take an Order of the Stick style approach to storytelling. (There's no 'real world' as such but the characters are, on some level, aware that their universe functions as a roleplaying game and follows the appropriate rules and cliches)

Either way it's an interesting direction for the first episode and suggests that, even if it's more serious from now on, it's still going to have a sort of wink, wink, nudge nature to itself. Probably for the best since the serious D&D fantasy epic has pretty much been done with the Lodoss franchise and its kin.

That was... unexpected. The name GONZO scares me, but the presence of Gatou is making me stay.

For now.

ADD] The NicoNico version was a riot. Utu is shaping up to be a hit character with me. Slight changes in the OP too.

Hmm...

I do think that the main character is playing an online game of some sort *cough*WoW*cough*

My imagination was running wild when identifying all the class types

There are different scenes of a normal life style outside of the fantasy world which makes me think so. Or it could be yet another twist and have the real word being a dream from the main character who is fighting in the fantasy land. Would be a genius twist!

Just found out that there was a sly G-Gundam reference in Jil's ultimate attack.

Cheers.

The official website tells their "jobs", at least.

Jil: Guardian
Kaya: Oracle
Amei (Ermey?): Lancer
Meruto (Melt?): Mage
Kuupa (Cooper?): Servant
Niva: Archer
Fatina (don't watch the sub so don't know official spelling...): Mage
Kari (Cary?): Scout
Utu: Attacker (Axe type)

I hope someone can sub the ura version soon. With my broken Japanese language ability, I somehow managed to understand most part of the ura version. It was also very funny in its own way. However, the most amazing thing is that they actually synchronized the Jil's lines in both versions. Therefore if you play both version side by side, you will hear Jil saying the same lines in the same time. This certainly added to the comedian effects. I cannot help laughing out loud while watching the first version. However, when I was watching the ura version, I actually rolled crazily in the floor since it was too hilarious...

In the Ura version I liked how Jil was compared to a haunted doll that just keeps coming back. Totally useless yet you just can't get rid of him.

And the Fake credit rolling at the end of his dream!!! Every one got a mention:

Princess - woman of the past.
Roope - tentacle
Inn owner - Friendly cameo

Hmmmm, I wasn't planning on watching this show, but since I heard it makes fun of RPGs cliches, I just had to watch the YouTube video.

With that said, I though the show had some funny moments, but I am still not sure if I am gonna keep watching this all the way to the end.

Ahhh. I wanna cosplay as Jil now OTL
Agreed. I was laughing at all the references and everything too. The cliches were so spot on, and reminded me again, why the stories I write, try and stay away from them.

Haven't seen the other version of the episode though, need to do that as it sounds worth watching too.

BTW You're in San Diego? I never see anybody on these forums from my area. Very

Actually if the voices are 100% in synch between the two versions, and let's just say there's a softsub floating around for the first version (not saying there is one), then...


BTW, has anyone mentioned that even the guy's name 'Jil' itself is a parody of the orignial hero 'Gil'? Thought to say it for completion sake. Even the heroine's name Kaya is a parody of the original herione Ki (pronoucned as KAI).
