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 #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? Does the story hold up, and do the rewrites to the story make any sense? Download the show now, or head on over to the podcast page for more information or to subscribe.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0238! VegettoEX and Meri review “Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans”, the re-made feature included with “Raging Blast 2″. Does the story benefit from a few rewrites and condensed time frame? Financial news, iPad manga, November’s releases, and your e-mails round out the episode!

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.

We are back with another doozy of an episode for everyone. In addition to catching up on the recent news (including a few new items, which we will get to below shortly) with Marc from The Fanboy Review, Josh from Sparking Turtle joined us for a topic we have been wanting to discuss for a long time now: ki. What exactly is ki, how is it represented in the DragonBall franchise, and how about those fighting styles? Lots of great tidbits get dropped throughout the conversation, and is one you definitely do not want to miss. Download the show now, or head on over to the podcast page for more information or to subscribe.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0236! VegettoEX and Meri bring on a couple friends for a jam-packed episode.

October and November releases, your e-mails, and a contest to win “Tenkaichi Tag Team” for the PSP rounds out the episode.

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.

It has been out for a couple weeks, but we finally had a chance to all get together and review the new “Team Dragon” (from AKB48) CD single, “Kokoro no Hane” (the second closing theme for DragonBall Kai). The written review would normally be accompanying the podcast version, but some fascinating insight from Julian revealed the true nature behind the music video for the song… so we need to rent a movie, first! Listen in for all the nitty-gritty details. Download the show now, or head on over to the podcast page for more information or to subscribe.
