Dragon Quest 08

Dragon Quest: ~Legend of the Hero Abel~
Episode 08
Level 08: Archfiend Baramos’ Weakness!! The Mystery of the Night of the Lunar Eclipse


Dragon Quest is loosely based on Dragon Quest III. The names and some of the characters are familiar, but the world map is smaller and a very different shape. The two main characters are Abel and Tiara. Tiara receives the legendary Red Orb from the Ariahan Village sage Master Yogi. Soon after, Tiara is kidnapped by the evil Baramos who wants to use the Red Orb to resurrect The Great Dragon and be granted eternal life. Abel swore to rescue Tiara and he is given the Blue Orb, which can only seal the Dragon once it has been released.

Some notes:
1) Since we actually get to see the Wings of the Dragon…we’ve changed this from ‘Wing of the Dragon’ to ‘Wings of the Dragon’ (since there are two shown )
2) This is the hotspring episode you’ve been waiting for (or not) …..Some brief nudity in the episode…so please think of the children D:
3) In episode 4 (around 5:23) the Bagi spell is used (which was an energy ball)…here in ep 8 the Bagi spell is used again but instead there’s tornados being thrown around. This is an error of the show for you nit-picky fans. we’ve decided to use the same localization though (Infernos) for both.

Life’s been inhumanely busy but ….sunred 51 will be our next release.

Hey guys,

Mappyman here of the #FightingMagic fansub team. I’m extremely happy to see this series get a proper sub after all these years. Mendisino and I tackled the first two episodes years ago with a decent translation. Our source was from the Satellite re-airings. The quality was great but it did have the ‘dim’ effect given whenever Jewel Monsters were defeated as a result of the Pokémon seizures. I hope this project goes to completion. With 8 Episodes in, I’m sure you will do fine. My site for our fansub is still up with the entire English script typed out if it provides any aid. Good luck adventures!

Excellent to be reading the Dragon Quest series will finally get a proper fansub! I am from the fansub group #FightingMagic. Mendinso and I subtitled the first two episodes back in 2007 and I still have my progress site up today in the link above. I typed out all of the dialogue for the English language version. Our source was the satellite re-airing of the episodes and while the quality was good, there were several monster jewel scenes ‘dimmed’ due to the Pokemon seizures that happened awhile back. Are you using the DVD releases? Feel free to use my site for anything needed. Best of luck finishing this amazing series up. Quest on, adventurers!

Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!! This series actually changed the way I looked at life, crazy as it sounds! Daisy is the BEST, tough little thing that she is.

Thank you very much! I’ve been waiting over two decades for a translation of this series, and I’ve watched your previous translations, wondering and churning over when the next one will, if ever, be released. Thank you for continuing to work on this brilliant anime, which should’ve had an official release in English (sub or dub) by now.

If you guys haven’t figured it out yet, this project is basically over. Everyone thank ANBU for their awesome releases, then study some Japanese, import the DVDs, and sub this for me. XD

Seriously, thanks for everything and best of luck in your future endeavors.

I wouldn’t say the project’s dead and buried just yet. Anbu is a pretty slow group, a three month delay is longer than usual but not completely beyond reason for them. :p Thanks for subbing Dragon Quest, Anbu crew, I’m enjoying the anime a lot.

For godsake’s ANBU, what are you playing at? No releases of any kind for 3 months? Get it together or people’ll think you’ve died again!

I hope all is well. I’ve been watching your subs for a long time, and I get worried when a group goes silent.

I have a copy of the Dragon Warrior TV, either taped off of TV in 1989 or 1-2 generations off of tapes taped off TV in 1989. It is then converted to DVD using a DVD recorder.

This is considerably better quality than the version that’s already floating around the net.

I was wondering: would ANBU be interested in converting this to xvid and/or putting it on a tracker? Converting it to such (and editing out the commercials) is beyond my expertise.

Odin: It’s Dragon Warrior. The US TV dub. No subtitles needed.

There are copies of this floating around the net but they’re really terrible quality.
