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 #0224 — 06 July 2010

Our podcast release schedule is going to be wonky over the course of July, but we have some great content coming your way. This episode, Meri and I took a first-look at DragonBall Origins 2 for the Nintendo DS.

Catching up on news, July’s jam-packed releases, and tons of other stuff is present and ready for your enjoyment!

Podcast Episode #0221 — 31 May 2010

While it may not sound like the most enthralling “radio” in the world, our look at the first new art and illustration book for the franchise in fifteen years is pretty gosh darn exciting. Ōgon no Senshi (“The Golden Warrior”) was released just last month in Japan, and is a steal at around $12. We are spoiling the entire podcast by saying so, but you should really just go ahead and order the darn thing right now.

Podcast Episode #0220 — 24 May 2010

We traditionally do not cover any dub of the franchise in this sort of (extreme) depth here on the website and podcast. Since we have already editorialized and pontificated upon Kai as an entity more than our fair share, it seemed like the best route to take with FUNimation’s recent release was to focus on the one aspect new to the release — its English dub. Is it truly the most accurate and faithful English dub the series has received, or is it traditional FUNimation where one little aspect somewhere holds it back from being everything it can be? Our buddy Hujio joins us for the topic, while a little bit of news, releases for the next month, and e-mails that make us think real hard about our viewpoints round out the episode!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0220! VegettoEX, Meri, and Hujio dive in to FUNimation’s domestic release of “DragonBall Z Kai”. Having already covered “Kai” as an entity (and specifically the first story arc) extensively on the show before, we figured the best course of action was to cover the one entirely new aspect of this release – the new English dub. Is it truly the most accurate and faithful English dub the series has received, or is it traditional FUNimation where one little aspect somewhere holds it back from being everything it can be? A little bit of news, releases for the next month, and e-mails that make us think real hard about our viewpoints round out the episode!
