What is Friendship! Effort! Victory!? – A podcast about the manga and inner workings of Weekly Shonen Jump, with an eye towards accessibility and soothing camp tones.

What is this episode about? – Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball, mostly, with a look over the elements that made it successful and some of the rumour and speculation surrounding it.

Where are the show notes? – Just below this sentence!

– You can learn more about Akira Toriyama’s career and Dragon Ball itself over at these two wikipedia links (1) (2)
-All knowledge about the intended ending rumours can be backed up over at Kanzenshuu, a website that knows far more than me about Dragon Ball and all its surrounding media
-Dragonball AF, the non-existant continuation of the series that some people still believe is real, is pretty dumb
-You can also learn a bit about Weekly Shonen Jump over at wikipedia, at least until I find the extensive hidden away on an old livejournal blog.
-And of course you can purchase Dragon Ball volumes digitally from VizManga (US only) or physically from bookstores and Amazon (UK) (US) (CA)
-Did I forget to note anything you want to know more about? Do you have feedback for me? Let me know by e-mailing maxy DOT barnard AT gmail DOT com (that’s how we do it right? not actually linking?)

  1. Nice podcast!
    I was buying all the volumes of Dragon Ball, but, unfortunately, they stopped releasing them in my country after volume 24.

  2. Thank you! Always glad to take a compliment.
    That’s unfortunate about Dragon Ball, you would it’d be able to ride its reputation enough to make it to the end in any country, surprised to hear it’s not the case

  3. Hey. I need an info, please. Is that the cover of the issue of Shonen Jump were Dragon Ball first appeared?
