This week on the show we gathered together for a mid-year checkup on our 2012 predictions. Things went astray the very next week back in January when Episode of Bardock did in fact have a somewhat-formal home release announced, but how about the rest of our predictions? Do our combined decades upon decades of experience […]

This week on the show we took a dive into the ghosts of collaboration past with Akira Toriyama and Dragon Ball alongside Osamu Akimoto and Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo (or simply “KochiKame” for short). Things start off back in 1991 with a two-page gag in Volume 69 of KochiKame, then jump ahead to 2006 […]

A little bit of podcast topic schedule shuffling is in the works, which resulted in this week’s show being a collection of fun mini-topics suggested by you all via our Twitter and Facebook pages. We can’t really complain, especially since you managed to come up with such great suggestions! Join us for a little bit […]

We like to celebrate in style here at Kanzenshuu… and by “style”, we mean that we want to provide as much valuable and engaging content as we can while still having a ton of fun! Sure, we celebrate the fact that we have been podcasting pretty much every single week for over six years to […]

Back on Episode #0291 of our show, we ran through a history and profile of Minoru Maeda, one of the most prolific character designers and animation supervisors from the entire run of the Dragon Ball franchise. This week we tackle #2 on the list of the “big three” with Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru. Perhaps best known for […]

We are shifting some podcast topic schedules around a little bit this month, which meant that this week’s show needed a topic, and needed one quickly! Thankfully, we have a massive archive of on-going discussions that you all are having every single day, and we can steal from it! I really loved this past week’s […]

Lots of questions have been pouring in from listeners over the last few weeks, so we decided to give you all some lovin’ and catch up a little bit. We really love this, because it gives us a chance to toss out a whole bunch of mini-topics in one fell swoop! Tune in for questions […]

Europe has an interesting history with the Dragon Ball franchise. Countries like Spain, Italy, and France imported the series early on and have been enjoying it for many years with multiple home video releases. The UK has always been the odd-man-out over there, though — despite the entire series airing on television via an English […]

A lot has changed since 1984 — Dragon Ball has since come to an end, anime episodes are readily available worldwide hours after they are initially broadcast, and manga is now both drawn and published digitally! With all these great leaps in technology over the past few decades it was only a matter of time […]

Things were different back in 1997. An English dub of Dragon Ball Z had only been on North American television for a single year. We had one video game for the franchise, but it was from a decade prior and had almost all traces of it being a part of the franchise stripped away from […]
