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 #0243 — 29 December 2010

It has certainly been a crazy year, this here 2010. The prior year may have given us DragonBall Kai, but this year was no slouch in the crazy announcement department. We had our fair share of sad moments over the course of 2010, as well, unfortunately.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0243! VegettoEX, Meri, and Julian recap the crazy year that was 2010. All sorts of surprises on both sides of the ocean, a plethora of releases, far too many sad moments, and a few head-scratchers made up the last year. How did we fare in our predictions from a year ago, and what do we see on the horizon for 2011? We already know about some video games and home releases, but will there be any true surprises in the next year?

Podcast Episode #0242 — 20 December 2010

We thought we would be taking it easy this week on the show due to sickness all around and lack of any significant news, but that all got tossed out the window when the Toriko announcement (see below) came into play.

Podcast Episode #0241 — 06 December 2010

On 03 December 2010, Shueisha released a new magazine called Saikyô Jump. Included in it was the debut of a new spin-off called DragonBall SD, which we have been tracking for a few weeks, now. The one-shot from Naho Ooishi reintroduces the audience to little Son Goku and follows him over the span of a single chapter interacting with his new master (Kame-Sen’nin) and new best friend (Kuririn). We discussed DragonBall SD on this week’s podcast episode, so tune in to find out if it is truly a fresh take on the franchise, or just another example of “been there, done that”.

Podcast Episode #0239 — 15 November 2010

We are back with another extravaganza of a podcast episode for all of you this week. It is all video games all the time, but those of you that do not have even a shred of interest in these games will still want to tune in. In our first topic segment, our buddies Jake and Lance join in to talk about characters that were created specifically and originally for video games, and have not appeared in the series proper. Ever hear of “Kurilien” or “Piccorito”…? In the second topic segment, Dustin joins in to talk about Raging Blast 2, the most recent fighting game from Spike and Namco-Bandai. With the first game being such a disappointment, is there anything here to bring fans back into the fold?

Podcast Episode #0238 — 07 November 2010

Raging Blast 2 is officially out, which means it is time to dig in to the re-made feature included on the game disc: Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans. Having recently reviewed the original “Official Visual Guide” a few weeks back, everything is fresh in our memory… but does that help or hurt the new version?

Podcast Episode #0237 — 01 November 2010

This is the podcast episode for those of you who indicated on the survey that you want us to go until we collapse! Our buddy Hujio joins us to talk about all the news from the last week and review Dragon Ball Kai Soundtrack III & Songs, which includes three all-new vocal songs. Is Kai composer Kenji Yamamoto stepping up his game at all for the new story arc?

In addition to that, we also bring on Corey to talk about the new Tenkaichi Tag Team for the PSP. Is a portable Sparking! game everything that it should be, and is it perhaps being overshadowed by the impending Raging Blast 2…?

It is certainly a jam-packed episode this week. Download the show now, or head on over to the podcast page for more information or to subscribe.

In addition to all that, we are ready to announce the winners of our Tenkaichi Tag Team contest! In a surprise twist, Namco-Bandai and Goku’s Corner came through for us and we are able to offer up two copies of the game to a couple lucky fans. Big congrats go out to Jacob and Carlos! Check your e-mail, guys, because you have a video game coming your way! For those interested, here are the winners’ “Dream Team” choices:

JACOB: I am forced to go with the titantic Banjô Ginga’s Ammond and the Illusionary Saiyan voiced by Daisuke Gôri. With their manly-man voices combined they can overcome anything!

CARLOS: My dream team – Vegeta & Tarble

Specials thanks again go out to Goku’s Corner, the official fan community of Dragon Ball games by NAMCO BANDAI Games, Inc. for sponsoring this Dragon Ball Z®: Tenkaichi Tag Team contest with us. For those who are interested, the site is hosting an exclusive new trailer for Raging Blast 2.

As a personal aside, I absolutely adore how the current generation of games have embraced Hironobu Kageyama as their lead vocalist, and that even here in North America the game’s producers leverage his talents in their promotion. Major props.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0237! VegettoEX and Hujio review the “DragonBall Kai Soundtrack III & Songs” album. Kenji Yamamoto has moved into new territory with his score, and the album also features three new vocal songs. Corey also pops in to talk about “Tenkaichi Tag Team” for the PSP. Is the portable “Sparking!” everything it should have been? Tons of news, some quick releases, and an e-mail schooling about rare footage rounds out the episode.
