Dragon Quest error

Post by griffondoor » Thu Dec 22, 2005 4:52 am

The entry for Dragon Quest or Dragonquest I and Dragonquest II (the continuation) is in fact about Dragonquest III Dai no Daiboken.

The story lines and character designs are quite different w/ the first series done by Akira Toriyama of Dragonball fame.

To check out DQ I see:

I well remember getting copies from a Video Store in Chicago and making duplicates at Capricon

I'm afraid none of us understood you :P

What entry specifically? Anime entry or file entry? I take it it's a file entry?

So which file (give us the link to it) should be removed to which episode? :D

Sorry, I shouldn't make posts like this after I've had my evening meds ^_^

Under the listing for Dragon Quest:

http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.pl?s ... e&aid=2091

it says:
"Dai, a young orphaned boy, is living on the island of Demurin, populated by friendly monsters, when he is approached by Aban and his student Pop who offer to train him. When the Evil King Hadora, who had been defeated thirty years ago by Aban, finds Aban with intent to destroy him, Aban is surprised by the degree to which Hadora`s power has grown. With Aban`s death, Dai and Pop leave Demurin to avenge their master but soon learn that Hadora is a minor threat compared to the Evil God Vern and his six generals."

This is probably fine for Dragonquest III Dai no Daiboken but not the original Dragonquest that was chara designed by Akira Toriyama with a completely different story line of Baramos trying to get the blood of the dragon to become immortal and Abel, Mokomoko and Tialla trying to stop him. Harmony Gold dubbed the first 13 episodes which showed on US TV in the early 90's

I've seen all the episodes in Japanese but as I don't understand the language am not qualified to make the entry.

OK?

I have watched a few of the first DragonQuest eps and i must go in the sens of griffondoor. The plot summary of DragonQuest (2091) apply to Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken (1105). This should be wiped/replaced by something more accurate (looking for something).

Ah, he meant just the summaries, not the actual data? In which case, just creqing them like you did was the right thing. Can we consider this fixed and closed then now?
