  1. Damn, it’s always surprising when Toei puts in the effort. Not gonna lie, I haven’t played much Dragon Quest, but I got a few chills. Looks good and it looks fun (fun for a movie)

      1. That pales in comparison to this.
        CGI =/= the “Pixar” look.

        Mewtwo Strikes Back “Evolution” only made those characters look like anime action figures.
        Dragon Quest: Your Story on the other hand looks more ALIVE.

        Likely because their faces would have more facial expressions.
        Sometimes converting a 2D character model to a 3D character model with no changes won’t have good looking results.
        Off-Topic; but take the Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour trilogy for example: The Jimmy Neutron characters looked great when converted from 3D to 2D, but the Fairly Oddparents characters look very out of place when they’re converted from 2D to 3D and they look kinda creepy for it.

        Also; 3D anime shows/movies (even the good ones) are kinda limited when it comes to their facial expressions, so if Dragon Quest: Your Story did the same thing, it would just look generic and stale.

        And for an adaptation that DOESN’T capture the DBZ look 100% of the time (if anything it looks more like it’s trying to be a new art style while being respectful to the source material), it looks quite good.

        1. I see. I think the only reason why the new Pokemon movie looks like that is because they based the models on the older Pokemon art from the 90s TV show. So of course the models would look almost too uncanny because they have no say in the matter. But we can all agree it would have been worse than this fan project.
