You should watch it if you are shonen fan. It is much better than any of the other dragon quests games/anime when it comes to story and villains, there is a lot of big fights and twists. I have read the whole manga.


Thanks for the message. Yeah I think I will watch it. I have a bit of a soft spot for the games, I played quite a lot when i was younger. I hadn't actually realised that there was an anime/manga for the series, so it definitely caught my interest and hearing your positive reaction to it more or less tips the scales in its favour. I'll add it to my list so that I remember to pick it up next season

Ogata as Brass, and (SS best girl) Furihata as Gome-chan??? Those voices work so well!! Cannot wait for this reboot, and hoping for some sakuga as well, but not limited to Shida.
