THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Avan is such a weird guy but he's got some absurd strength.

Dai is still such a kid this episode. I think he's got a long way to go to really become a hero. I find his training session rather amusing. Gotta give credit to the kid for trying hard though.

Good episode, I just don't like too much the rate of the beginning, but otherwise was good. I really felt the trainning part of this episode at a good rate, so no conplain there, I am also expecting too much for the Hadora appearance.

I really don't like these "censored blood". Dai no Daibouken has many bloody intense fights, please don't censor them Toei, use real blood!!!

It's not censored, Hadlar and the demons have black blood. Also, in the 1991 anime the blood was blue with some kind of glitter effect, actually seems more like a kind of blue fire in that adaptation.

Episode was great. It was paced perfectly and felt brisk. There's a lot of little things that they adjusted that helps reinforce things like characterization for later but it's pretty much spot on with the manga as a whole. Super happy with the work they're doing.

The 1991 version used glowing blue fluid with tinges of red for this scene so it's not like they used blood in that version either. I actually really like the change they used for this because the monster disappears too making it feel more like a an otherworldly monster though I guess it technically is. It also reminds me of a fantasy game too, lol

And like the other post mentioned, their blood is supposed to be black. Brass mentioned it earlier in the episode and it's the same line as in the manga.

My goodness, they really nailed Popp's and Avan's voice. Very close to the originals. But Avan's fight is not going to be in a cave this time, huh.
And geez now Hadlar is coming up. Faster pace indeed.

...and Poop too I guess

So I´ve been getting the references of the spells, since I have played a few DQ games before, but I don´t remember transforming into a dragon to use attacks, so I guess that´s something only he does. On a side note, is really cool that Dai openly says he likes the princess.

Avan gives me some heavy Merlin vibes, same voice and behavior.

Hah, its about time another characters appeared. Its Popp and his master, the agent of justice xD. Surely their appearance kinda funny. But, beside their appearance they looked so strong so far. Even Avan had a strong light spell that could prevent the darkness power to posessed the monster on the island. Wow, such a massive power! Popp even had a potential too, with his magic, could burn that Gargoyle in an instant. However, like Avan's said, his lack of determination kinda made him stuck below the average and never surpassed his weakness. However, by seeing Dai intenses training, it seemed, slowly, Popp might realized his weakness as soon as possible. The motivation indeed became a massive answer to be stronger.

Dai did a quick learnt by taking a special hard training from Avan. A lot of various lesson he had, from strengthened his physical, did a lot of combatant technique already launched, slicing a huge rock, a sword play in the afternoon, then a little battle against Avan himself at the end of the second day, slowly raising up his combat's level. Two days in, Dai already changed himself and mastered the basic technique of sword, forced Avan to show Dai his special attack and told Dai to mastering it in a flash. Avan's Strash, thats its name! First stages easily passed, an Earth Slice. Now, the second stages Dai needed to defeat Avan's again. Its interesting to see how Dai could fight and defeated Avan, but on the Dragon's form now. Lets see the next to see the result!

It’s not a very popular spell, but it’s always there.

If you played Dragon Quest Monsters you might recognize it by its older name, BeDragon.

Am I forgetting something? Why did Dai say he needs to train to get stronger to save princess Leona? Did something else happen to her that I'm not remembering. I thought he saved her last episode and then they said their goodbyes until they meet again. She doesn't need to be saved. Or is it because of the dark lord being back? He has to save her from the dark lord?

I'm very glad that these first eps get many positive reviews though first two arcs are the worst of whole manga. The story will get much better from Flazzard Arc and 100x better from Baran Arc onwards... Can't wait to watch those parts being animated with this great animation!!!

The dark lord has an army of powerful demons... He wants to conquer earth, invade all countries in the world and he is doing well. Leona is the queen of Papnika Kingdom and it is being invaded by his demonic army.

Avan has arrived! The hero trainer who's got some wicked skills himself has come to the Island to train our young Dai. Classic shonen training kind of episode. Dai is being put through the ringer to get his skills up to snuff with the demon Lord returning. Avan came at just the right time to stop Dai monster friends from rampaging. Setting that giant sealing spell. Popp is a cool dude too. A bit more weary of Avan training since he's been under his wing the past year. But still knows the value Avan can bring when he trains someone. Popp can handle some advanced magic too, something Dai isn't too good at. While little Dai showed just how amazing he as with that sword, even a cheap one Avan threw his way. Loved the progress we could see from Dai in such a short time. He's a natural with the blade. Now to see him face Avan himself whilst transformed into that dragon!

Avan is an interesting character and I can't wait to learn more about him.

And it was nice seeing Dai taking the training seriously.

Training time with a tutor that can turn himself into a dragon......with glasses...............nice.

Well Dai is on his way to becoming a hero and we finally get to meet the second main character of the story, Popp and nothing else really happens besides his training.

Ok episode :)

So the Dark Lord has returned and is causing the monsters to go out of control. Luckily Avan and Popp arrives on Dai's island to train Dai on how to fight like a hero after calming the monsters on the island. Avan puts Dai through a series of exercises and he's getting stronger everyday. Dai finally learns the Avan strike technique and his final test is to beat Avan who has turned into a dragon. Seeing Avan turn into a dragon reminds me of when Vegeta turn into a Great Ape for the first time, It was that powerful.

This kinda feels like a "Brotherhood" version of Dragon Quest. I hope we keep a fast pace until the Baran arc and then we get to enjoy the rest of the story that was never animated at a slower pace.

As an old fan of the first series I'm enjoying this one very much!

This episode reminded me so much Dragon Ball and the training of Goku and Kuririn with Kame Sennin especially with the exercise of the rock !
The only inconvenient I found was the pace at the beginning of the episode, but except that it was a great episode :)
I'm so happy that Toei decided to remake the series

Another good episode and I liked how Dai takes Avan's training serious and Dai master everything in two days while Popp didn't take the training seriously even though the dark lord has return Popp is just relaxing and at the end of the episode when Avan yelled out loud Puff I was like WtF but thank god he only transformed into a dragon with glasses
Overall 7 out of 10

The pacing is quite good so far. Next episode, things will start to get serious. My only little concern is really about the music that is not at the level of that of the original series.
For the censor, i'm waiting for the result of attacks on important characters.

Popp was saying that is impossible to become an hero in a week. It seems that things are looking good for dai in only 3 days of traning, it helps that he is hard working and has a lot of talent.

exact same feeling. Everything is fine. pacing, animation, etc... that's perfect
But the music... big no no. no offense to the composer but that's nowhere near to the first series. I don't have that epicness feeling like before.

First, I only read manga, manga only has black and white colors lol
Second, Demons' blood in manga is described as Blue but I still think the monsters from Human's world (surface) should have red blood, only Makai's monsters' blood is blue but maybe I am wrong :))
Please don't insult like that lmao, so impolite, kiddo :)

We've gotten to the point where two of my favorite characters are introduced: Popp and Avan. Dai also gets in intense but amusing training this episode too. All in all, pretty good ep. I just feel so happy to see my favorite characters come back in HD again lmao

Well the level of violence is like Saint Seiya or DBZ and YuYu Hakusho to stay within the original series airing period. Each person has a different approach to blood. So i wouldn't recommend it for little kids who are easily impressed.
