Learn Kanji With Dragon Ball – Lesson 8

Lesson eight of the Kanji series on the official site is the word for this special item that Goku gets from Karin and revives injured fighters in the series. Yes that’s right. The Kanji is 仙豆 or senzu in senzu bean!

So senzu literally means hermit bean. You can read more about this character here!
