Based on on spoilers from Japanese audiences, don't be hyped.

I'm a big Dragon Quest fan and no I will not watch something this ugly. This is just a heavy insult to take the franchise.

Well, that was somewhat fast. The Netflix anime library is the weirdest thing ever.

No the lazy ass remasters they dropped on the Switch are insults to the franchise this is nowhere near as bad or ugly.

These are the same people who shit on one of the games because it had the temerity to allow you to see monsters on the field.

This guy knows what’s up. Seriously the only two things I hear wrong about this film is “Wahh the characters don’t look like Toriyama!” and “Wahh! Stupid weird ending!” (I don’t know much myself) The former is just obstinate “I hate it because it’s new” whining. The latter is a fair complaint but there’s no reason the rest of the film can’t be enjoyable.

Another thing I heard is that people weren’t crazy for the live action actors doing the roles instead of experienced voice actors. This is a fair complaint that I’m sure will better in an English dub.

I’m really eager to see who they get for the dub. Apparently there’s a SAG Aftra listing indicating NYAV Post doing it?

Thanks for your opinion but this new one is even worse. Anyway I won't watch it.

It's not so much an opinion as it's fact like I get people don't like CG because it's not traditional hand drawn animation but like it's no where as bad visually as people love to go on and on about. Like I could see taking the movie to task for trying to fit a 20-30 hour video game into a barely two hour movie or the gigantic feet they gave most of the cast but really.

Do you have an internationally known IP? Did you adapt it into a theatrical film that flopped at the domestic box office? Netflix is buying!
