same studio yeah, but it reminds of dragonball because the creator is the mastermind behind dragonball so yeah its matched the same.

The main character is based on goku or gohan, then that other little guy is trunks, the woman is suppose to be android 18 and the one on the electronical wagon is suppose to be young bulma and then also the blond older guy in the intro is Hercule en many other resambles characters.

Anyway I watched the first subbed episode and I like it somewhat even tough its dragonball stylish I did enjoyed the DBZ part mostly. So I hope this anime gonna be pretty good it looks atleast better then DBZ at the moment.

lol well, Akira Toriyama is indeed the one behind Dragonball Z.. he was only responsible for the characters designs in Blue Dragon. Thus why they resemble DBZ.. none of the characters are really based on DBZ characters, just his art "style" is very generic and most of his characters look relatively the same.

I never said the anime is based on DBZ, its just the characters are basically just copies from the serie how you look at it.
That doesn´t change the fact I loved this anime though lol just stated the obvious how the characters look like xD

though the subbing is awefully slow hey already have like 4 or 5 episodes released and just one has been subbed.
Though I readed somewhere that Viz had already licensed it from the start as soon as the first episode was aired.

Neither did I say that the anime was based on DBZ, was just saying why the characters look very much like those from DBZ.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to the game on the 360 as well.. probabaly why I won't watch the anime because I'd like the story to be something new when I play the game in Aug :D

You know the weird thing is with Blue Dragon :P

The guy had fixed the script for the game before the anime even, but because it had something so good they holded of the game abit and started to do some on making the anime.

So originally the Game was there before the idea making the anime its the other way around hehe, usually its a game based on anime, though this is kinda an anime based on the game.

And August is kinda wrong I think unless you import it from japan or maybe USA.....european release is in September =( we are always last too get *sigh*

Nice, you may want to look online a bit first though to see if your European console would be compatible with the North American version of the game. In some cases like that they won't work because of region protection, but there are some exceptions.

Yeah thats right, haven't readed or seen any info yet on Blue Dragon though, but I readed a article of microsoft xbox team will delete all accounts with illegal games playing under a differend name or so that they can play non european games and stuff.

I will have a look into it, but isn't 360 region free, I mean aslong as I order the original game from USA or Japan it should be allowed right ?

I haven't heard anything of Microsoft deleting accounts for this but it could be true.
I've heard of people doing it before so it shouldn't be a problem.
A site you may want to check once it's released here is: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-00-3-xbox360_compatibility_guide-49-en.html . Which usually has a good updated list of the compatibility (To show whether your console is compatible with a certain game. NTSC-J = Asia NTSC-U/C = North America PAL = Europe.

You know, I wasn't sure how much I was gonna like this show, but you know, I think I'm gonna really like it.

Also, why do all Akira Toriyama's character designs look the same?

Old avatar and sig retired for now.

I realy did like this I just decided to see it now though, I didn't think it would be worth watching, I had serious low expectations, it looks DBZ, but ain't based on any of the ideas, so I didn't find it aloring . But I took that back and slapped my self in the head while I had my eyes glued to the screen. Its nothing the same, but couldn't be better, and its nothing like pokemon, as i expected. Atleast the shadows can talk with a sense of wit. My only problem was with Zola's alittle. Can't wait to get more of this.
