Dragon Quest Synopsis: Dai no Daibouken

In the story, after having defeated the demon lord Hadlar, all the monsters were freed from his evil control and moved to the island of Delmurin to live peacefully. Dai is the only human who lives there. Having been raised by the monster Brass, Dai's dream is to become a hero. He sees an opportunity to become one when he learns that the demon lord Hadlar has been resurrected and that the previous hero, Avan, has come to train Dai, but Hadlar announces that he now serves a demon lord far more powerful than him, and he's hunting Avan. To save his student, the hero uses the spell of self-sacrifice, but is unable to defeat Hadlar. Cornered and near death, the hero's mark appears on Dai's forehead and he gains the power to stand up to him. Can he save the world now that he has become a hero?
