The podcast is our chance to be a bit more personable and editorialize on the news… and this week’s episode may be the ultimate example of this show format.

The Dragon Ball Super manga has been a fascinating companion to the TV series. Originally debuting within the pages of V-Jump back in June (in the August 2015 issue, two weeks ahead of the TV series’ premiere), Toyotarō’s manga was our first look at the upcoming story. While the first chapter was essentially a (relatively-faithful) […]

With Dragon Ball taking inspiration from Journey to the West so early on (see the article in our “DB30YEARS” anniversary magazine for more information!), it should be no surprise to hear that many names in the series are Chinese in origin.

It’s time for a little out-of-universe discussion about in-universe topics! This week on the show we reflect upon the “Strength Checker“… which isn’t even a proper section of our website (it’s just a forum thread), yet somehow has risen through the ranks as one of our highest-linked resources. SHOW DESCRIPTION: Episode #0386! VegettoEX and Herms […]

We are less than a week away from Dragon Ball Super…! Even with the various new productions over the last decade, nothing comes close to fandom’s excitement over this new TV series. Whereas with a movie we know everything about it within an hour or two of watching it, with a TV series it’s a […]

It is the calm before the storm: though we received the name of a new character coming our way in Dragon Ball Super, the news has otherwise been relatively light. This last week was a perfect opportunity to dive in to Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden on the Japanese Nintendo 3DS. Come for the news, […]
