When you put it like that, its looks like its in bad hands that its a MV director working on this but Takashi Yamazaki also directed Stand By Me Doraemon with Ryuuchi Yagi.

What a coincidence, I have been playing DQV and seeing this news makes me excited to finish quick.

But kind of wished it wasn't 3dcg format..

3DCG is not inherently bad.
Look at what Square Enix did with the Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children movie 14 years ago. The visuals are stunning.

If this is done by visual works, it'll probably look amazing, hell I'd love something to DQ 11's opening quality

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

I'd rather them just focus on making another game sooner. Interaction and gameplay are the biggest parts of Dragon Quest experience. I can't imagine getting the same amount of enjoyment from an anime that will cut all of that out and just ask to watch everything from the sidelines. I'd hate to see this game series turn into what final fantasy is today.

If Square handles this with the respect it deserves, this will be one of the most beautiful things ever to come out. Shame it won't be screened here in Maldives, though. Would love to watch it on the big screen.

DQ11's intro is the one game intro I've never, ever skipped. So fucking good.

This has nothing to do with the games, it's a adaptation. lol It's no different than any game adaptation out there.

Nothing to do with the games? Last time I checked, a designer for those games getting involved was part of having something to do with it.
