Dragon Quest X Is Getting A Romantic Comedy Manga, Where Two Players Decide To Meet

By Eugene . June 20, 2014 . 12:30pm


Square Enix’s Dragon Quest X is getting a manga spin-off in the form of a romantic comedy. It’s all about what happens when a handsome young man and a beautiful young woman meet for the first time and fall in love.


And yes, it’s got Dragon Quest X in its setting. You can read the first chapter, which sets it all up (and is hilariously adorable) in Japanese at this link.


Titled “It Was Fun Last Night,” the spin-off is going to run in Young GanGan magazine and follows two players who’ve decided to finally meet up in real life after playing tons of Dragon Quest X together. The two characters in question are Powder and Goro.



Problem: Goro the warrior thinks she’s meeting another woman in Powder the cute Puklipo. Yes, Goro, the armored up warrior tank is the lady in the above picture.


If you’re wondering what’s going on and don’t really play MMORPGs, here’s the lowdown. Online games these days match up strangers, and sometimes, they’ll chat and form longer bonds. This is especially prevalent in MMORPG’s, though it can also happen in other games like FPS shooters.  Some of these people eventually meet up in real life. Happens all the time.


Of course, there are plenty of people impersonating someone from the opposite sex all the time. There’s thus the real danger of meeting someone who’s got trouble on their minds or ends up being the clichéd 40 year old unwashed crazy. In the case of “It Was Fun Last Night,” though, we’re settling in for a romantic comedy full of cute and pretty.

    Hmm, from what I saw nothing really happened in that chapter.

    I’d read it if it’s ever translated xD

    I think the chick on the cover is fugly. I am far from impressed with whatever art style that happens to be.

    And while the concept for this pretty much has few options either than what is used here, its still very unoriginal to hear. I don’t think I would have been as nit picky about the story line if I had found the art style to be charming or impressive but considering I think the two are pretty lack luster on their own let alone combined, I’m left with the idea that the only thing this manga appears to have going for it is a popular game, “Dragon Quest” , is actually used in it.

    This looks like a nice manga. I hope somebody will fall in love with me someday but it seems unrealistic because I’m too much of an otaku.
