  1. Is it true the composer of the DQ series is a sexist homophobe?

    1. Ferno

      why do I always read DQ as Dairy Queen

    2. Conando

      Yes. Also he’s old as shit so we can hope he dies soon and is replaced by the FF XII composer.

      Oh yeah it’s real and part of the reason I don’t really touch the series all that much.

      @Conando That's messed up. You should never hope for someone's death.

      @Ernest the Panda It's Dairy Queen.

       

      Spoiler

      It's actually Dragon Quest, it was a joke.

      I usually don’t, but this guy uses his money to do incredibly heinous shit.

      @Conando That still doesn't make it okay.

      Which is hilarious in hindsight now that DQXI S will let you romance your male friends and in DQXI 3DS (the non localized one) one of your male friends can actually confess to you. (And no, is not Sylvando), not counting the bisexual npc from Builders 1. And none of these are jokes or mocking. They are genuine, which is nice to see.

      So they probably are tieing him up as they make DQ gay.

      If I recall correctly, he's also in with the war crime denier party that essentially says Japan is innocent of any wrong doing in WWII and it's all a conspiracy to make Japan look bad.

      He is old, dumb and dying, so soon we don't have to feel guilty anymore about DQ.

      @JosepHenry I don't know man, I mean it's still jacked up Square still employed this old fucker. They bankrolled a guy that dismissed Japan's growing suicide problems.

    14. Polkadi~☆

      Homophobe, war crime denier, and dismisses the VERY OBVIOUS suicide problems?

      So he’s one of THOSE old folks. The Japanese Baby Boomer, essentially.

      @Balding SpiderHe is unfortunately, the creator of Japan's most regonizable themes. Is hard to just give him the boot...

      One thing though. If queer people can can like Persona which the director (aka the one that commands everything and kinda owns the characters, stories and writing, is the huge transophobe, homophobe, sexist asshole, I can like Dragon Quest despite having a inhuman scum of a composer.

    16. Polkadi~☆

      I mean, it makes sense to separate the art from the artist. Don’t let a bad person pull you away from something that is so, so great.

      I’m bisexual, yet still love Persona all the same, because the series itself is not defined by the qualities of the writer.

      all i did was comment about dairy queen and my notifs exploded

      I. despise. separating artist from art. I really do. I can't do that with Persona. Is something I cannot stop doing. Katsura Hashino is the director and writer. Basically the creator. And it shows. His homophobia, sexism, and transphobia are in the games. That's to me, is part of Persona 3, 4 and 5. That's stupid I know. But in Dragon Quest, the only thing that ruins it for me is the music, which I can mute or whatever. I stopped playing DQ for a while because of this prick mummy of a composer.

    19. Polkadi~☆

      And that’s fair enough too. I guess we all have our own ways, because at the end of the day, I just wanted to play a game, and I’m not thinking of who made it when I play it. Not even until months after finishing Persona 5 did I know who Hashino was, let alone what he’s like.

      I wish my experience was the same as you...
