The latest addition to our “Press Archive” is a fun blast-from-the-past: a TV Guide article from October 1996 previewing the syndication broadcast debut of the Dragon Ball Z English dub from FUNimation. While the article itself is not particularly notable in and of itself, it was subject to a pretty fun (in retrospect, anyway!) discussion

The latest addition to our “Press Archive” is a little more recent than most of the other items — particularly yesterday’s Harmony Gold review from 1991! — and while it does not necessarily provide as deep an insight into what we think of as the series itself, it does give a unique view into the

Like other magazines of the day — such as Protoculture Addicts — Antarctic Press’ Mangazine featured original cover art showcasing the series of

While the “Press Archive” has seemingly sat untouched here on the website since its launch back in September, we have been hard at work in the background amassing content for future updates. Today we are launching transcriptions from three issues of Protoculture Addicts: the May/June 1993 issue, the November/December 1995 issue, and the February/March 1997

The “Press Archive” is a new section here at Kanzenshuu with the goal of documenting references to, articles about, and reviews for the Dragon Ball franchise from international (read: non-Japanese) media; think of it as a sibling to the “Translations” section. The section — which will only continue to grow over time — will generally
