After the defeat of the demon lord Hadlar all of the monsters were unleashed from his evil will and moved to the island of Delmurin to live in peace. Dai is the only human living on the island. Having been raised by the kindly monster Brass, Dai's dream is to grow up to be a hero. He gets to become one when Hadlar is resurrected and the previous hero, Avan, comes to train Dai to help in the battle. But Hadlar, announcing that he now works for an even more powerful demon lord, comes to kill Avan. To save his students Avan uses a Self-Sacrifice spell to attack, but is unable to defeat Hadlar. When it seems that Dai and Avan's other student Pop are doomed a mark appears on Dai's forehead and he suddenly gains super powers and is able to fend off Hadlar. The two students then go off on a journey to avenge Avan and bring peace back to the world.

Overall, this anime is a classic, very much worth watching, and if the DVDs of this series come out in Japan I will jump to buy them in a heart beat (even if they suffer the same problems as the VHS release: one op and ed per two episodes, and the preview for the next episode replaced by one done by some unknown narrator who likes to spoil the plot for the next two episodes.) What makes this anime work well is a strong story carried by likable, believable characters who grow and change as the story progresses. read more

while some bad anime from the same studio like dragon ball are so popular with high ranking They are just screaming in Dragon Ball and they get Power Up, as a fan of the old version of HxH and classical anime
I can see that Togashi has inspired a lot from this anime we all know his is in fact a fan of dragon quest game, making a remake for this anime was a good Idea read more

IT WAS ALL WORTH IT!!!!this gem is too rare, and something thats Toei animation's 3rd biggest asset after the hokuto no ken and dragonball franchise i'll say that by seeing dragonquest , my childhood can be thrown straigt out the window......you saw it?? there it goes. My childhood needed something like this but sadly it seems like Dragonquest is like a ' japan anime exclusive' something VERY HARD to collect on dvd or elsewere in the western world wich i would die for, and proves for me that once again Toei is my favorite anime studio.
