Got A Question?

Our weekly podcast[?], then named Daizenshuu EX – The Podcast, began in November 2005 as a new way to reach out to our audience, extend that audience, and simply have fun with the franchise we love so much. Though we updated the name to Kanzenshuu – The Podcast in April 2012 with the launch of this website, we remain the best, most authoritative, entertaining, and only Dragon Ball podcast you will ever need!

Each episode, the Kanzenshuu staff discuss the latest news in the world of Dragon Ball from across the globe before heading into a core topic — whether it be an in-depth discussion of the way in which the story and franchise was produced, theories for in-universe scenarios and “What If?” scenes, interviews with those actually involved with the franchise, thorough reviews of video games or home video releases, we have you covered! We wrap things up with the month’s upcoming releases, questions from the listeners, and much more! We regularly have contests, broadcast live (watch our Twitter and Facebook!), and have a great time sharing our love of the Dragon Ball franchise with you all each and every week.


Podcast Episode #0471 — 22 April 2019

SHOW DESCRIPTION:

Episode #0471! Mike, Julian, and Ian review Toyotaro’s “debut” manga series (in an official capacity, anyway): “Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission” from 2012-2014. The odd little promotional manga that could somehow grew into a legitimate serialization and arguably shaped the future of the “Dragon Ball Heroes” franchise for years to come. What lasting impact do we still see all these years later, and how does “Victory Mission” itself still hold up?
