Queen Quest -Vol.01- Tabidachi (The Beginning) is a Dragon Quest parody from Curenade. It features our heroine out on a quest before she suffer a setback in the form of slimy creatures. The one thing I should definitely point out (that the circle did not) is that the title is really short. There are 12 movie files in here, but they come to a total of 5:32. Outside of the opening (which is 1:17) all the other animations is either 10 or 30 seconds. So if you’re looking for a hearty long title, then this is not for you.
The girl doesn’t look too bad at first glance. She does have a cute face that does have nice facial movement. Her breasts are very huge and round and her bottom is pretty okay. You really can’t get get a good idea of how she looks as the armor is covering most of her body or the shots are zoomed in on various parts. There was also a problem I had with how her breasts look after the lactation scene. I get the idea that Curenade wanted it to look like her breasts were covered in milk. But because the artist just made white splotches and put it on the texture, her breasts end up looking like she suffers from vitiligo. It also doesn’t help that her nipples are brightly pink no matter what to make that claim stay true.
The best way I can describe the graphics is that they’re plain. I mean, the girl is rendered nicely with good textures on the armor, but the issue described above on her breasts also negates most of the positives about her design. The slimy monsters also look simple but good, resembling their counterparts from the game, retaining their happy smile while they attack the girl by violating her. But outside of that, nothing stands out. The background has a generic backdrop look that’s blurred, so any detail that would’ve been there is lost. Lighting is confusing also as the setting is suppose to be a forest, but there’s no indication of that. There’s no shadows or anything to show any kind of lighting detail. Everything is just very bright and very shiny. There’s no depth in the graphics area.
There are some good, bad and pretty funny moments with the animation. Some of the good was the girl’s movements were nice on some parts. The slimy monster do move very jiggly with their tentacles having a fluid motion to them. With the bad, there’s clipping issues that become very noticeable in a run through. There’s also the breasts animation. They can either have a slight subtle bounce or a ridiculous movement like being stretched out like silly putty. Another thing I really hated about this title was how stuff just disappeared. It wasn’t like something removed it from the scene. The item just faded out in the scene like that. The slimy monsters are jiggling on her breast armor and then suddenly, that’s gone. I would’ve thought that would’ve been okay if timing was an issue, but since the title is so short, this felt like lazy work on the artist’s part.
But it wasn’t all bad. Some of it was more funny than it had any right to be. The stretchy breasts were hilarious, but the lactating sequence just absolutely wins. After the slimy monsters are absorbed (i.e. disappeared) into her breasts, they start just raining milk like a hose. If you look milking, then this scene is for you. I also thought it was funny how the slimy monster’s way of defeating her was basically jiggling all over her body. They kind of looked like those Scrubbing Bubbles while doing that as they keep their smile the whole time. I can’t hate those creatures one bit.
Normally, I can tend to overlook flaws of a title if the sex scenes are good (the reverse can also be said). That being said, this is probably the second worst sex scenes I’ve seen yet. It was either erotic nor sexy. Majority of the sex scenes is just the slimy monster fondling her body and it’s not in any way a turn on. When they do any sort of penetration using tentacle, it felt sorta meh. It wasn’t exciting nor was it sexy. It was just meh. 5 minutes may not seem like a lot of time to create a great animated movie, but I’ve seen artists accomplish much more than this one did in a lot less time.
Queen Quest -Vol. 1- Tabidachi might look like an interesting title just by looking at the cover. But it doesn’t really live up to this expectation. I really wanted to like this title, but the subpar graphics, bad animations and terrible sex scenes don’t warrant a purchase. If you’re looking for something in the WTF category, then this might be something worth a look and laugh. But there are other better titles that’s worth your money. I know it’s customary to say get this title at the bottom, but seriously don’t get it. No buys.
