Good anime and story
14 November 2020 | by baderamro-38555See all my reviews

Dragon quest the adventure of Dai is an excellent story and manga, no doubt. Strong characters, plot, and quite entertaining. It is early to judge this re-make of the original anime. But watching 6 episodes so far, I feel this new version lacks the dark atmosphere that surrounded evil characters in the 1991 version. The battle between Avan and Hadlar, for example, felt darker and more serious in 1991 than 2020. I found the music in 1991 so far superior, which adds to the 1991 version. The new version (until first 6 episodes) is a bit rushed as well; several parts which gave momentum to plot are skipped. That is not to say the new version is bad; animation is still superior to 1991. Also, the rush is probably to catch up quickly with where the manga originally stopped. I hope they pace down at that point and include more of the details which made the story great.
