Dragon Quest is loosely based on Dragon Quest III. The names and some of the characters are familar, but the world map is smaller and a very different shape. The two main characters are Abel and Tialah. Tialah receives the legendary Red Stone from the Aliahan Village sage Master Yogi. Soon after, Tialah is kidnapped by the evil Baramos who wants to use the Red Stone to resurrect The Great Dragon and be granted eternal life. Abel swore to rescue Tialah and he is given the Blue Stone, which can only seal the Dragon once it has been released.

This show was surprisingly enjoyable for something that has not necessarily aged very gracefully. Not to insult it, but the animation and art consistency was a bit budget at times.

I would recommend this to any fantasy/adventure fans, even if you are not big on Dragon Quest specifically. It is very much a product of its time but I found myself genuinely surprised at some of the directions the story went in when my initial opinion was that it would be a super generic spin off anime to make money off the games popularity when it was beginning to really take off as a series.
