Episode #0405! Mike and Meri hash out one last batch of Trunks anticipation based on the "Dragon Ball Super" episode 46 stinger and next-episode-preview. We also share the top five cover versions of the original "Dragon Ball" TV series ending theme, "I'll Give You Romance". A wide selection of old and new covers alike make the list, so listen in for some great tune recommendations!

00:13 - Introduction (what's on deck, DBS!Trunks hype, etc.)
10:41 - Topic (Top 5 "I'll Give You Romance" covers)
26:07 - Ending

It's impossible to not spoil some of the Top 5 without also providing useful links to purchase the available ones... so I threw them in alphabetical order by artist and left out the one you can't actually purchase :P. So please listen before reading! But... you're already at the bottom... oh no... it's ruined... it's all over... pack it up... we're done here... who's still reading this...?

I'll be honest, I didn't actually expect to enjoy this one since the topic didn't really interest me. That was actually really great! Genuinely. Felt like a nice relaxed radio breakdown of some really great covers. Nice job!

Same as Ajay wasn't expecting much enjoyment out of this but it was fun. Good job as always.

Is it 2006 again? Back then, "I'll Give You Romance" and Trunks' whole "HOPE" thing got me through some angsty times of having a huge unrequited teenage crush. Plus Meri being all excited about new Trunks stuff certainly feels like a blast to the past. Of course, Trunks is a time traveler, so it all fits rather perfectly.

I feel like it's worth noting that the Czecho no Republic version is actually available on US Amazon in MP3 form for anyone who doesn't want to import a physical copy of the CD.
(Edit: Oh, wait, I didn't realize the CDJapan links were affiliate links. I hope providing this link is okay in that case?)

"I'll Give You Romance" has always fascinated me. Sure it got a nice tune and a beautiful singing voice, but never have I imagined it would be this... huge. There was a time when we got a new version of the song like it was a part of every new idol's contract and it always me me question how popular is it to reach such status!
