Podcast Episode #0188
Published by 23 August 2009, 3:29 PM EDT

We are extremely excited to share Episode #0188 of the podcast with you, as it has been one we have been planning on doing for quite some time. It made sense to cover it once we were past the point in our “Manga Review of Awesomeness” when sento ryoku (battle powers, power levels, combat strength…) were no longer relevant, and so now that we have hit that point, it’s time to jump into the discussion! Herms from Kanzentai joins us to discuss the history (and possibly origin influences) for the concept’s implementation in DragonBall, and even how they have affected fandom over time! Download the show now, or head on over to the podcast page for more information or to subscribe.

Episode #0188! VegettoEX and Meri bring on Herms from Kanzentai to discuss the concept of “sento ryoku” in the DragonBall series. Battle powers, power levels, combat strength… whatever it is you want to call them, they have become an important part of fandom and its culture. Are they really that significant in the grand scheme of the series, though? And where did this concept even come from, in the first place? “Raging Blast” news (including SSJ3 Broli), the rest of August’s releases, your questions, and much more rounds out the episode!
