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 #0074 — 22 April 2007

Episode #0074 of the podcast is available for download! This week, we took a look at the new CD from last December, DragonBall Z Best Remix 2006 1/2 Special. Certainly an interesting release, it’s not quite a “remix” CD in terms of what the word traditionally means… it’s more of a “re-mix” CD. Listen in for more details. We checked in with Julian at Anime Boston, Jeff stopped by to read some e-mails, and don’t forget that there’s one more week for the DBZ Movie 8 DVD contest! Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0074! VegettoEX and Meri discuss and review the “DragonBall Z Best Remix 2006 1/2 Special” CD. We check in with Julian at Anime Boston, Jeff stops by to read some e-mails, and we bring back a segment everyone has been asking for!

Podcast Episode #0073 — 15 April 2007

Episode #0073 of the podcast is available for download! That’s right, two updates in a row… spanning two different days! Whoa! For the show this week, we took at look at the character of Tapion. Who is he, and why the Hell is he so popular for a dude that’s only around for a single movie?! Is it the theme song? Is it the sword? Is it the shoes?! He’s on fire…! In all seriousness, he’s a pretty intriguing character that doesn’t over-stay his welcome, and we certainly had a good conversation about him. Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0073! VegettoEX, Meri, and Julian discuss the character of Tapion. For someone who is only around for a single movie, why is he so popular? Is it the theme song, the character design, or something else completely? News of a new, quasi-DB animated feature, April’s releases, and voice e-mail round out the episode.

Podcast Episode #0072 — 08 April 2007

Episode #0072 of the podcast is available for download! This week, we were able to escape death and do the actual review & analysis of volume three of the DragonBall manga. It is certainly one of our favorite volumes from the entire series, so check out what we had to say about it. We also had some good discussions on a variety of other items, so be sure to check out the show notes for links to everything we mentioned. Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0072! VegettoEX, Meri, Julian, and Jeff review, analyze, and discuss volume three of the manga. What about this particular volume makes it such a classic that brings a giant smile to our faces? Various items of news, April’s releases, and a good batch of e-mails round out the episode.

Podcast Episode #0071 — 01 April 2007

Episode #0071 of the podcast is available for download! Don’t be fooled, though. This is the “mastermind”, if you will. Let the very fact that I’m posting be proof that the entirety of Daizenshuu EX has been compromised, and the fate of each and every one of you lies in my own devious hands. You know too much. I’m coming for you. Listen for details, and be aware that it very well may be the last thing you ever hear… Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0071! VegettoEX, Meri, and Jeff discuss some interesting DVD news from FUNimation (is there a potential Spanish-language release coming?), and attempt to continue the manga review with volume three… but things don’t always go as planned… Is this the end of the road for our heroes? Only time (and your listening to the show) will tell!

Podcast Episode #0070 — 25 March 2007

Episode #0070 of the podcast is available for download! This week, in response to… uhh… responses… that our video from Episode #0068 received, we took a look at fandom, itself. What about the Japanese version flat-out offends some of today’s fans? What would drive these people to such anger? We examined their placement (or displacement, if you will) in relation to the show and other fans, which eventually leads us into FUNimation’s treatment of the show (and their inability to decide whether or not today it should be viewed as “nostalgia” or “new hotness”). Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0070! VegettoEX, Meri, and Julian discuss today’s fans with regards to the series and the way they view it (both the Japanese version and the English version, in relation to their [dis]placement)… the way FUNimation treats the property (is it “nostalgia” or “new hotness”?)… and more. Our conversation touches upon ideas that cross generations of fans, and moves into an interesting Q&A e-mail session with quite the amusing “fan”.

Podcast Episode #0069 — 18 March 2007

Episode #0069 of the podcast is available for download! Julian was in town this weekend, so we finally were able to have another local recording with us all together! Good times, good times… This week we discussed all of the various Japanese DragonBall tunes you can find on iTunes. From some special remixes to the “2005 version” CD singles, there’s actually a decent collection of material up for grabs! We also went over a good bit of news, releases, and e-mails… which actually resulted in another mini-topic, where we discussed this apparently well-known parody clip involving something with a “nine” and a “thousand” in it… Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:

Podcast Episode #0068 — 11 March 2007

Episode #0068 of the podcast is available for download! And it has a special bonus video to go along with it! No, we haven’t become a video podcast… we won’t abandon you. Besides, us sitting around computers with mics isn’t exactly enthralling to watch. No, no! What we’ve done is create a bonus video explanation (or primer, if you will) to go along with our main topic for the week!

This week, we discussed a scene from DBZ episode 101 in which Vegeta (who has just been brought back to life in a package deal via Earth’s DragonBalls) flies over and sees a newly-SSJ Goku with his own eyes, right there on Namek. In case you don’t know… this never happens in the manga. We discussed the ramifications of this scene (how Vegeta should be reacting, how it would change his outlook after coming back to Earth, etc.).

In addition to the topic, we also went over some news, some releases, and hit up a few voice mails. Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0068! VegettoEX, Meri, and Julian start up a new topic series, discussing inconsistencies the anime creates. For our first discussion, we take a look at DBZ episode 101 where a resurrected Vegeta flies over and sees SSJ Goku with his own eyes… which never happened in the manga. A corresponding slide-show video shows you everything! News, releases, and e-mails round out the episode.

Podcast Episode #0067 — 04 March 2007

Episode #0067 of the podcast is available for download! This week, Meri, Jeff, and I took a look at volume two of the manga to once again look from two perspectives… those that have read it before, and those being introduced to it for the first time. How did volume two stack up against volume one? Which staples of the series do we get introduced to so early on? We also answered a ton of e-mails and finally gave away that damn boxset that people seem to want… but… don’t actually really want. Bwuahaha. Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0067! VegettoEX, Meri, and Jeff review and analyze volume two of the manga. Three major staples of the series (Shenlong, Kamehameha, Oozaru) show up here for the first time! We also answer tons of e-mail and finally get rid of this “remastered” DBZ season one boxset that people want but apparently don’t REALLY want…!

Podcast Episode #0066 — 25 February 2007

Episode #0066 of the podcast is available for download! This week Meri and I took a look (and listen!) back at the original dub and re-dub from FUNimation, all the way back in good ol’ 1996. Did you know that the very first two episodes of DBZ had about a dozen lines re-recorded that you can only hear in the original broadcast? Listen in with us as we discuss these changes. You also have one more week to get in those contest entries and win that… well, we can’t say “amazing” prize… or even “good” prize… but it’s that “remastered” season one set. Yeah. That thing. You know… the one we keep talking about :P. Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0066! VegettoEX and Meri discuss the dub and re-dub… from 1996! Back when FUNimation was only just getting started with DBZ, approximately a dozen references to death were re-edited and re-recorded for the dub, so we listened to and compared examples from both versions. A little discussion on the review to our DVD Season One review, our indirect Digg-ing from the last week, a couple e-mails, and our contest round out the episode!

Podcast Episode #0065 — 18 February 2007

Episode #0065 of the podcast is available for download! We finally got around to it, this week. As we’ve called it, “The Big Orange Review” is our in-depth analysis of FUNimation’s lies and deceit to fandom with their so-called “Remastered” DBZ Season One DVD boxset. If there’s anything we didn’t cover on the show, hopefully Corey’s review website will go into that further detail you were looking for (including all the images you can eat). Definitely check it out.

And because we’re nice (and because Tanooki Kuribo continues to steal things off the back of trucks), we’re giving away this damn set. We don’t want it. Maybe you do. Let’s make it perfectly clear that FUNimation has nothing to do with this contest… it didn’t come from them for us to give to you, and honestly, we don’t want you to spend your money on this garbage. Listen to the episode for full details. All it takes is a simple e-mail!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0065! VegettoEX, Meri, Julian, and Corey discuss and review FUNimation’s remastered DBZ season one DVD boxset. The general conclusion is that it’s an insult to fandom, but listen in for our full thoughts on FUNimation’s lies. And hey, if you still want the set, we’re giving one away with absolutely no catch. A bit of news and your e-mails round out the episode.
