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 #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.

Definitely check it out.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:

Episode #0061 of the podcast is available for download! With all the stuff going on with FUNimation’s so-called “remastered” DBZ, it only seemed appropriate to take a look back at some of the cover-ups they’ve done with the property over the years.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0061! VegettoEX, Meri, and Julian discuss FUNimation’s lies… err… “cover-ups”… over the years regarding their DragonBall productions.

February’s releases, your e-mails, and our “Cross Epoch” giveaway contest round out the episode!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
