Got A Question?

Our weekly podcast[?], then named Daizenshuu EX – The Podcast, began in November 2005 as a new way to reach out to our audience, extend that audience, and simply have fun with the franchise we love so much. Though we updated the name to Kanzenshuu – The Podcast in April 2012 with the launch of this website, we remain the best, most authoritative, entertaining, and only Dragon Ball podcast you will ever need!

Each episode, the Kanzenshuu staff discuss the latest news in the world of Dragon Ball from across the globe before heading into a core topic — whether it be an in-depth discussion of the way in which the story and franchise was produced, theories for in-universe scenarios and “What If?” scenes, interviews with those actually involved with the franchise, thorough reviews of video games or home video releases, we have you covered! We wrap things up with the month’s upcoming releases, questions from the listeners, and much more! We regularly have contests, broadcast live (watch our Twitter and Facebook!), and have a great time sharing our love of the Dragon Ball franchise with you all each and every week.


Podcast Episode #0386 — 03 August 2015

It’s time for a little out-of-universe discussion about in-universe topics! This week on the show we reflect upon the “Strength Checker“… which isn’t even a proper section of our website (it’s just a forum thread), yet somehow has risen through the ranks as one of our highest-linked resources.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0386! VegettoEX and Herms discuss the “Strength Checker”, a forum thread dedicated to cataloging each and every manga statement relating to the strength or power of any given character. What purpose does such a reference serve, and what can we learn about our fandom from this?

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0384! VegettoEX, Hujio, and Herms discuss the first two episodes of the new “Dragon Ball Super” TV series!

Podcast Episode #0383 — 29 June 2015

We are less than a week away from Dragon Ball Super…! Even with the various new productions over the last decade, nothing comes close to fandom’s excitement over this new TV series. Whereas with a movie we know everything about it within an hour or two of watching it, with a TV series it’s a week-to-week guessing game. What will happen next?! This is our last episode before the new series begins, and our hype cannot possibly be contained!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0383! VegettoEX and Hujio discuss “Dragon Ball Super” as we sit less than a week out from its debut. Where in the timeline will it take place, and how will this new story affect the other recent productions? Will “Battle of Gods” still “happen” in the overall story? Tons of news and thoughts from you wrap up the show!

Podcast Episode #0382 — 22 June 2015

It is the calm before the storm: though we received the name of a new character coming our way in Dragon Ball Super, the news has otherwise been relatively light. This last week was a perfect opportunity to dive in to Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden on the Japanese Nintendo 3DS. Come for the news, stay for the game review!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0382! VegettoEX and Herms discuss the reveal of “Champa” for “Dragon Ball Super” before diving in to early impressions of “Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden” for the Japanese Nintendo 3DS. While the new game invokes the old Super Famicom series, does it live up to the pedigree set by both the old games as well as 2011’s “Ultimate Butoden” on the original Nintendo DS? Did Arc System Works deliver a technical masterpiece, or just phone it in on the portable space?

Podcast Episode #0381 — 16 June 2015

It is only within the last week or so that actual information about Dragon Ball Super has begun to make its way to the public. For a little bit there, we were not entirely sure the project would be ready in time! With the reveal of a logo and a 15-second preview trailer, we finally have enough to dig our collective teeth into. What is on the horizon for the first new series since the end of Dragon Ball GT…?

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0381! VegettoEX and Hujio discuss “Dragon Ball Super” as we quickly approach its debut in July. After taking a look at the short preview trailer and official website updates, what is on the horizon for fans of the Dragon World, and is Toei truly taking advantage of the property they have?

In typical Kanzenshuu fashion, we don’t let the fact that we barely know anything slow down our conversation!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0380! VegettoEX, Hujio and Meri discuss the recently-announced, new TV series: “Dragon Ball Super”. What do we know about it so far, and what should we expect? How will it fit in with the existing franchise stories?
