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 #0235 — 17 October 2010

With a little bit of cautious optimism as Raging Blast 2 inches toward us with an included remake of the feature, we decided it was finally time to take a look back at the original 1993 version of the “Official Visual Guide” for the Famicom game, Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans:

Our buddy Corey joined in on the discussion as we provide a quick history, recap both parts of the feature, and tear it to shreds. To be fair, there are a couple pieces in there that genuinely got us laughing and having a good time, so you will definitely want to listen in for that. October’s news and releases along with your fantastic e-mails all round out the episode. Download the show now, or head on over to the podcast page for more information or to subscribe.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0235! VegettoEX, Meri, and Corey reluctantly dive in to the original 1993 “Official Visual Guide” version of “Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans”. This video strategy guide for the original Famicom game can be viewed as its own stand-alone feature, but should you bother? Is there anything under the surface that could result in a decent remake in the upcoming “Raging Blast 2″…? October’s news and releases, as well as some fantastic e-mails, rounds out the episode.

Podcast Episode #0233 — 12 September 2010

Having finished off the Cell Game in our regular “Manga Review of Awesomeness” monthly podcast segment, we decided that it was an appropriate time to review the second, self-contained filler arc in the Dragon Ball Z TV series: the Ano-yo’ichi Budōkai. The afterlife tournament takes place exclusively in the TV series, and provided some extra buffer time for the manga to trudge on forward. It has been many years since Meri and I saw these episodes, and like with the manga, Jeff was jumping in completely fresh. How did this five-episode story arc hold up for us?

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0233! VegettoEX, Meri, and Jeff dive into the Ano-yo’ichi Budōkai for a “Filler Review of Awesomeness”. The TV series was getting a little too close to the manga, so the second self-contained filler arc for the “Dragon Ball Z” TV series was given the green light. How does it hold up? All sorts of bizarre news from around the world, September’s releases, and your e-mails round out the episode.

We also covered the unfortunate stroke that veteran voice actor Takeshi Aono recently suffered, and what this means for the role of Kami-sama going forward in the franchise.
