Dai no Daibouken was the first Dragon Quest manga and the second anime series. The manga ran in Shonen Jump and filled 37 volumes. It was written by Riku Sanjo and the art was by Koji Inada. Folks in the states can check out their current work in Viz's Beet The Vandal Buster.

The island Demurin was home to many friendly monsters and an orphan boy named Dai. One day a man named Aban and his disciple, Pop arrived to train. It was going smoothly until Hadora, the King of Evil and an old enemy of Aban's showed up.

Aban had defeated Hadora 30 years ago and now he was out for revenge. To Aban's surprise, Hadora had become much more powerful since their last encounter. Aban tried his best, but Hadora had the upper hand. In desperation, Aban cast Megante but to no avail. Hadora left Demurin with world conquest on his mind.

Dai and Pop left Demurin to avenge their master and bring peace to the world. But, they soon learn that Hadora is not their biggest threat because he's only the second in command to Vern, the God of Evil. Like any Dragon Quest adventure, Dai and Pop join up with a few companions on their journey. They first meet Maam, a martial artist and then Princess Leona who serves as the group's healer. Together they face off against Vern's armies and commanding generals; Hyunkel, leader of the Immortals Army, Crocodin, leader of the Beast Army, Freezard, leader of the Fire and Ice Army, Saboera, leader of the Wizard's Army, Myst, leader of the Shadow Army, and finally, Baran, leader of the Dragons Army. Crocodin and Hyunkel eventually join after Dai defeats them. He also eventually learns that Baran is his father.
