I believe so, yes. Even if the Dragon Qust series had already dealt with serious issues just as the killing of a loved one before your eyes, this is the first time it's done in a cinematic manner that focused on emotions. Namely uncertainity, powerlessness and maybe even hopelessness, you don't know nor expect what the Hero will go through after this.
Yesterday I added the page of Madesagora, did I get the information right? Thanks! By the way I think I will add more Dragon Quest X villains that has important influence to the plot to this wiki, so I might need your help when adding their artworks.
