This week we add animator Masahiro Shimanuki to the “Animation Styles Guide”! Shimanuki was the second animation supervisor in the series from the Seigasha animation studio, following Tomekichi Takeuchi, and would rotate the role of animation supervisor with Kazuya Hisada throughout the remainder of Dragon Ball Z. This would be Shimanuki’s first major stint as […]

This week we add veteran animator Tomekichi Takeuchi to the “Animation Styles Guide”! Takeuchi was the first animator we’d see in the series from the Seigasha animation studio, and was involved as an animation supervisor throughout Dragon Ball and up through the first part of Dragon Ball Z (episode 63). He was also the oldest […]

It is definitely no secret to fans of Dragon Ball that the series’ animation quality was quite variable at times — it had its good days, and it had its bad days. There’s no doubt that this variation in quality has been a major point of discussion on just about every message board or forum […]

Well, it may be a week later than intended, but all video game songs from the 1990s (for the Super Famicom through the PlayStation and Sega Saturn) have been added to the “Lyrics” section. It may seem strange that even a 16-bit system would have had vocal music, but the majority of these (except for […]

All Dragon Ball video game songs from 2004’s Dragon Ball Z 2 onward have been added to the “Lyrics” section. While we had initially planned on bringing you this content earlier, we […]

As the old adage goes, better late than never, right? Well, perhaps not in this case. We reviewed the game in podcast form back on Episode #0277 of our show, but the launch of Kanzenshuu itself pushed back the written review quite a bit. Before we jump into Dragon Ball Z for Kinect later this […]

It is our pleasure to announce that the “Lyrics” section now contains all songs used in the Dragon Ball Z theatrical films, as well as all insert songs from the Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Kai TV series.

Last week’s podcast episode brought in a fantastic amount of feedback! We had long-time fans glad to reminisce with us about the olden days of gaming, newer fans loving a history lesson / dip into the past, and everything in between. We could not be more happy to provide content you enjoy! Quite a few […]

Harley wrote to point us towards an interview from 1986 with Akira Toriyama and Rumiko Takahashi over on Rumic World. Definitely a good read, if for nothing other than a picture of a very young Toriyama! Seriously, though, there is a lot of really good insight from around the time that Dragon Ball was still […]
