Kanzenshuu – The Podcast

Your one and only Dragon Ball podcast!

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 #0508 — 24 December 2023

Show Description

Episode #0508! Mike brings on Ken and Ajay for an all-Daima extravaganza! We break down all the scenes in the debut Dragon Ball Daima trailer, trying to figure out who all is involved and what Toriyama may have in store for us, as well as dive into all the currently-announced production staff. We’re still a long ways off from actually seeing the show, but they certainly have our interest at this early stage!

Podcast Episode #0501 — 24 May 2023

Show Description

Episode #0501! Mike, Ajay, and Tyson look back at the 2013 theatrical film “Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods” with (somehow!) both a retrospective critical eye and a fresh perspective. Ten years removed and with multiple adaptations behind us, how does the original film version of the story hold up? What precedents did it set for the next decade, and what has the rest of the franchise still failed to recapture in all that time?

Episode #0499! Mike shares his Official Top Ten Dragon Ball Video Games with Kirran!
