Ninninger Giving Tribute To Dragon Quest And Other Roleplaying Games?
I may not be a huge RPG lover but I remembered playing Dragon Quest VIII for the Playstation 2 and I am looking forward to owning a Playstation 4 together with Dragon Quest Heroes (English version). Honestly, this was much better than the story mode time in ToQGer IMHO as the Ninningers enter into the game themselves while foiling a game related monster. References to Tsubaraya's hero Gridman (or Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad) anyone?
The first one is where there is the quest to liberate a kingdom. It just reminded me of how often that my RPG-playing video gaming peers would talk about Final Fantasy's and Dragon Quest's cliches.
Now here's where things get a bit more interesting with the characters....
And Fuuka, poor Fuuka is an elf? Well I'm reminded of how short she really is and she may have had to tiptoe when she was part of Yoshi Sudarso's selfie because she is short. Sidenote, does Sudarso play RPG games too aside from the fact he's a fan of Super Sentai? She does make a cute elf though though I'd like to joke Santa Claus might pass by anytime and pick her up... assuming Santa Claus exists in the VS Universe of Super Sentai!
Now for the mechanics...
After the Jukkarages are defeated, a box is dropped. It reminds me of how certain defeated enemies drop something when you defeat them. The box looks pretty much like it came from Dragon Quest.
And now I'm reminded of those magic mirrors in the RPG games. I can only remember the Sun Mirror in Dragon Quest VIII though.
And now we get status ailments...
Or did the show also have Knights of Tir Na Gog (Saban's original production) in mind? Hmmm... now only if Saban can create more original works or two, Toei and Saban should try to create at least one original work together.
