What is Dragon Quest: Adventure of Dai about?
The anime is based on the manga written by Riku Sanjo and illustrated by Koji Inada. Moreover, during its run, it was one of the most successful Shonen of all time, with over 47 million volumes sold. Just like the games it is based on, we follow Dai, a boy living on an island of monsters.
The outside world is in peace with the hero Avan having defeated demon king Hadler. So one day, Avan comes across Dai and takes him in as his apprentice to turn him into the next hero. But their training is interrupted by a revived Hadlar who kills Avan. And thus, Dai’s tale of becoming the hero of legend begins.
