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 #0266 — 25 July 2011

This week on our show we are joined by our comrade Hujio to discuss FUNimation’s announcement that they will be releasing the Dragon Ball Z TV series on Blu-ray beginning later this year in November. Will this just be a repeat of the orange brick masters from 2007’s “season sets” or does FUNimation have something else up their sleeve? What does this mean for the majority of our audience who has been snatching up the Dragon Box sets? Download the show now, or head on over to the podcast page for more information or to subscribe.

Episode #0266! VegettoEX and Hujio discuss FUNimation’s recent announcement that the DBZ TV series is coming to Blu-ray this year. Will this be another fiasco using 2007’s orange brick masters, or does FUNimation have something else up its sleeve? How will these products compare to everything else that is out there, including other versions of these same episodes sitting alongside them on store shelves? Also, who exactly will these new sets be aimed at, especially with Dragon Box releases coming to a close?

Podcast Episode #0265 — 18 July 2011

This week on our show we are joined by our comrade Herms to discuss “mistakes” in the most well-known of the guide books for the franchise, the daizenshuu. Are there truly mistakes in the books, however, or are these contradictions and questionable tidbits simply the work of fan mistranslations and over-active imaginations?

Podcast Episode #0259 — 23 May 2011

Thanks to a slow news week, we were able to dive into the past a little bit with something that is occasionally requested for a topic, but we have held off for fear of it being too distant and possibly irrelevant of a topic. With it being such a huge and important part of fandom’s rise and enjoyment, though, a listener e-mail gave us the push we needed to dive into ye’ olden fansub VHS days.

Our discussion begins with the need for a translated version of the show, all the way up through the digital age and any relevance it has to the franchise. Whether names like S. Baldric, E. Monsoon, Anime Labs, Ctenosaur, Project-X, NGN, or Pearl do or do not mean anything to you, this is the episode that explains it all!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0259! VegettoEX and Meri discuss ye’ olden fansub VHS days. How did non-Japanese fans watch the series prior to any domestic release, what were the experiences like, and how did everything change once a legitimate and proper release came on the scene? Whether names like S. Baldric, E. Monsoon, Anime Labs, Ctenosaur, Project-X, NGN, or Pearl do or do not mean anything to you, this is the episode that explains it all!
