Before we get Dragon Quest Your Story on Netflix in February, we want to watch (or rewatch, as the case may be) the anime series Dragon Quest: Legend of the Hero Abel. We're going to be starting a bookclub--erm, BINGE club--for the series!
From now until Feb. 13th, we're going to be binging all 42 (or 43--it's complicated) episodes of the anime series. We're using this YouTube playlist to get started: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLcDeYEFE5kzVVmMISuQVMmrDSETmuhyFn
It's missing a few episodes, but the others should be on YouTube as well. We will try to share them as we go along. These are fan-subbed in English, so make sure you turn on CC (unless you're fluent in Japanese, of course).
Not only that, but you can join our Binge Club discussion on Twitter! Just let us know you'd like to join, and we'll invite you to our group chat! Remember, you can find us on Twitter @DragonQuestFM!
We'll be having some podcast episodes focusing on the anime, but a lot of our discussion will happen in the group chat. So, please join us and help us geek out over this Dragon Quest anime!
BINGE CLUB WATCH SCHEDULE:
- Week 1 (Jan. 22-29) Episodes 1-12
- Week 2 (Jan. 30-Feb. 5) Episodes 13-29
- Week 3 (Feb. 6-Feb. 12) Episodes 30-42
If our math is right, that means we're watching about two episodes a day. Each episode is about 22 minutes in length if you watch the end credits, so it should be about an hour or less of binging each day. Is that crazy? Maybe! But it's gonna be tons of fun!
