Shonen pick for todayDai no Daibouken (or DragonQuest)The story of a young shipwerecked boy who wishes to because a hero.On a day like any other, a bunch of travelers come on his island, looking to “see and not take” his best friend, wich is a rare golden slime.After fighting and beating all the monsters they come across, even Dai, they run away with his best friend.Not able to let his friend be sold in a black market somewhere, Dai packs his bags and goes on an adventure more grand than he ever thought.This story brings me back…I use to read this when I was younger. It’s an old classic that I can’t help bu appreciate.The art isn’t so great, the story isn’t so intriguing. It’s full of cliché, but lovable characters.It’s always a very entertaining read.You can read it hereDon’t forget to buy the books at your local bookstore to encourage the author!Must read

Is this in any way related to, or an inspiration for dragon ball? The animation is similar, and even the characters look similar, main char looks sort of like kid Goku, and Bulma is there too…

It’s hard to say
I would think not, because this manga is based, to the best of my knowledge, on the game “Dragon Quest”And Dragon Quest was originally designed by the artist of Dragon Ball, Akira ToriyamaIf it is one thingI believe it is an attempt at following the style Dragon Ball introduced in the 1980s.The only similarities in both the stories are the age of the main character, the fact that he is an orphan and him being a hero of some kindDragon Quest is mainly fantasy, monster fighting, sorcery (very much like the game it is based on)But Dragon Ball mostly deals with extraterrestrial villains, internal strength, death in its many formsI do agree that they are similarBut I would never call one a copy of the otherBut, that is my view on it =)

And here are full scans for Dai Gyakuten Saiban! In addition to giving us a decent look at the game’s visuals, there’s some new info as well:

  • Ryuunosuke begins the game in Japan, where as a college student he’s involved in a certain case that puts him on the path to becoming a formal attorney.  To better study law, he transfers to England along with Mikotoba, where he meets Holmes.
  • Most of the story will take place in London, with Japan serving as the setting for Ryuunosuke’s first case.
  • Court and investigation proceed in mostly the same way, but during investigations Ryuunosuke and Holmes will use “joint logic” - a system where, as Ryuunosuke, you must point out any inconsistencies in Holmes’ rapid-fire reasoning.  (The example shown is Holmes accusing a witness of being a certain revolutionary.)
  • Takumi has a deep love of the Sherlock Holmes stories, so he’s trying to respect the character.  Holmes is described as falling somewhere between the “storybook Holmes” and a “real Holmes” - a man who focuses maybe too much on his investigations, but isn’t a bad person at heart.
  • Ryuunosuke and Holmes’ meeting is a key point of the game.

im laughing oh my god the localization team will actually have the least problems with this one im contrast to all the other games if it comes to the west
