This week, Michelle is MIA but Max and Yume discuss the Yakuza Deer uprising, the return of Black Thunder, the no-expectations Chocolate but this time with a new partner, Virtual Waifu’s taking over your washing machines, and of course, why the devil is in beef.

Welcome to our hot, hot, ninja hell. This week, Max stays salty about Comic-Con, we review the wierdest Asian myths about the dangers of trying to stay cool in the summer, reveal the horror of melted waifu figs, start our “Yoshiki Corner” segment because THAT MAN CAN STAY OUT OF THE NEWS NOR OUR BRAINS, and learn that we can actually pay someone to make us a ninja in Japan.
If this is your first episode with us, we apologize. The b*tthole talk got way out of hand, way fast. In this episode, we explore the dangers of karaoke in a hot spring, Korean idol merch you can probably (READ: DEFINITELY) make out with, and a stupid 3d man dumps a woman for hiding her otaku side.
We run the gamut of strange fake friendships and 2D love on this episode, featuring Love Live school idol vandalism in the name of honor, meals with your 2d waifu, and an entire waterpark dedicated to giving you fake instagram friends. We wish we were making this up. Oh, and here is the twitter account for the Hirakata Water Park.

The Senpai Buddies are reunited, telling tales about this week’s Anime Expo, a train that turns into an Evangelion piloted by kid-friendly Shinji, a voice actor who fights crime IRL, and child reenactors who come to your wedding to tell your life story. Happy Independence Day!
Yume is lost to time and space, but Max and Michelle analyze the magic behind table flipping, the top characters for kids in Japan, and why Miyavi can rock a cannoli in the live action Bleach movie.
Welcome to our Kawaii Ghost Corner, where we chat about the legend of OUTSIDE MAN, a jogger who haunts a shrine in Japan, moe girls made from Russian revolutions, and Matthew Broderick’s redemption from Godzilla.
ELECTRONIC 3 IS FINALLY HERE AND IT’S STEALING OUR SOULS! This shorter but just as good episode we’ll discuss the game that we’re anticipating most and what dangers you should avoid! Remember not to look directly in the spider man’s eyes.
Prepare yourself for Episode 17: A mascot WRECKS a reporter, photo ops, Crotch Flaps, and Max and Yume doing WAYYY too many terrible impressions of Michelle, who is missing in action this week.
Hokkaido melons are treated better than must humans, the “Is this is pigeon” meme explained, and we brainstorm how to get Jrock legend Gackt out of bankruptcy via Patreon.
