Square Enix began streaming the second episode of its Dragon Quest X: Bōkensha-tachi no Kiseki (Dragon Quest X: The Miracles of the Adventurers) series on Saturday. The anime celebrates the Dragon Quest X online game's fifth anniversary by performing player-submitted "miraculous stories" related to the game.
The second episode, "Dono Shokugyō de Tatakau ka Mayō Hanashi" (Story of Wavering Over What Kind of Job to Fight With), stars an unemployed protagonist who almost never leaves home. In the game, the protagonist plays a priest, and his allies rely on him to heal them when they ask for help. He hits it off with a female player named Alice, thinking she is young and single, but he finds out in chat that she has a son. In real life, she is a nurse.
The protagonist's depression begins to worsen and he is on the verge of asking Alice for help instead of the other way around. She says to him, "You really like to save people." Touched by her words, he decides to become a nurse, and she sends him her old textbooks and notes.
The first episode, which debuted last month, was animated.
Square Enix announced during the "Dragon Quest Natsu Matsuri" event on Sunday that its Dragon Quest X online game will get a new expansion titled Dragon Quest X: 5000-nen no Tabiji, Haruka Naru Furusato e (The 5000 Year Journey, to the Faraway Home Town), which is slated for release on November 16. Square Enix also announced that Dragon Quest X director Chikara Saitō is stepping down as director after the release of the expansion, and that chief planner Takashi Anzai is stepping in as the game's new director.
