This week, we’re discussing Dragon Quest Your Story, the movie that released on Netflix on February 13, 2020. We were both super excited to watch it (Austin watched it three times already), so this week’s episode is all about the first-ever Dragon Quest movie! Warning: There will be spoilers–and lots of ’em! So, if you haven’t watched the movie yet, you maybe want to boot up Netflix first and then listen to this episode.
We start things off with a REAL NICE THANK YOU to our newest Patreon patron, Chris Rowland. Then, we jump right into discussing the beginning parts of Your Story. Both Austin and B.J. felt the early parts were a bit rushed, but it didn’t keep them from enjoying the movie. We’ve also got plenty of things to talk about in the middle parts of the film: Bjorn the Behemoose, a surprise cameo from DQ VI’s Madame Luca, the distinct lack of Debora–the list goes on!
Be sure to listen to find out which part was Austin’s daughter’s favorite (it also happened to be B.J.’s favorite part, too). Oh, and we discuss THAT ending, of course! We talk about how it could be jarring for some fans, what we loved about it and why, and why we think the ending makes sense within the context of the film. You can also read Austin’s review of the movie by clicking here.
We also played a game as a minisode on our Patreon page. If you’re a patron (or would like to become one) then click this nifty link and give it a listen. Find out if Austin was able to stump B.J. when it comes to Dragon Quest V and Your Story trivia!
