Famous Anime Podcast – Shonen Jump: The Dragon Ball Years

After a few tweaks to the format following our pilot episode, here’s the first episode of the Famous Anime Podcast, the podcast all about Famous Anime. Elliot Page of UK Anime Network and Lewis Smith of Car and Mechanical are here to help us decide which of the anime based on Shonen Jump properties launched between the start of Dragon Ball and the start of Slam Dunk can enter the Famous Anime Podcast’s Hall of Anime Fame.

Other podcasts might tell you about unknown shows that you need to check out, but the Famous Anime Podcast is here to confirm that other people have heard about the anime you already know about!
