English adaptations of Dragon Ball are littered with untranslated names, titles, and phrases: Kai, Baba, Senzu, Roshi, and even Majin, just to name a few. In each case, these words have perfectly fine equivalents in English. For “Majin” in particular (and even more specifically, with regard to “Majin Boo”), why is it that we rarely […]

The confusion, mystery, and insanity surrounding the production of Dragon Ball Super only seems to escalate with each passing week.

Now that Dragon Ball Super has finally moved beyond the Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’ re-tellings, a wealth of new lore and background information has been dumped upon fans.

In our attempt to get things back on a weekly schedule for 2016, we must once again preempt our yearly news recap and predictions episode (stay tuned for that — it’s not not coming!). Instead, this week’s episode brings a bit of a language refresher and behind-the-scenes look at some internal Kanzenshuu debates. We are […]

It’s been a while! While we have not been able to schedule our 2015 reflections/predictions wrap-up episode just yet, the podcast must charge forward, nonetheless. This week’s episode comes courtesy of our buddy Kirbopher who invited us alongside MasakoX to discuss the Freeza adaptation in Dragon Ball Super for his “Kirblog” series on YouTube. Enjoy […]

Ten years ago we started our podcast as a way to expand to new audiences and have fun while developing new content for the website. Nearly 400 episodes later, we are still at it! This week on the show, the original duo of Mike and Julian reflect on the news stories from a decade ago […]

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. We at Kanzenshuu have been extremely disappointed in two items over the last week or so: (1) fandom’s incredulous response to the audacity of any company […]
