What A Cartoon! - Dragon Ball "Monster Beast Giran" With Shivam Bhatt

Chosen by our premium patron L, we're covering the original Dragon Ball anime with our expert friend Shivam Bhatt (co-host of the Commanderin' podcast)! We discuss how Akira Toriyama developed his action-comedy phenom, how Toei Animation adapted it, and how Goku's earlier adventures had a weird localization history in the US. Then we break down one of the first battles in the initial Budokai tournament, as Goku takes on his first round challenger, a kaiju named Giran. So ready up your ki for a kamehameha wave of podcasting action!
