Seriously, though. Can we all stop talking about Tifa’s boobs? Okay, maybe we can’t. This week we discuss “Final Fantasy 7 Remake Boob-Gate 2019″, the great ramen crimes of Japan, and Max’s obsession with body wipes that are possessed by cursed beings. This is all real, we swear.
Welcome, new and old weeaboos, to our very special Neon Genesis Evangelion episode of Senpai Buddies. Now that this shizz is on Netflix, we know y’all have got some QUESTIONS. We discuss why we love and hate it, how important it is the anime genre, and just like, make a lot of silly robot jokes. PS: THERE’S ANOTHER MOVIE COMING so get ready!
This very special spinoff episode features Private Investigators Doc Shadow and Brian Glass (Played by Michelle and Max), as they solve the many mysteries behind this week’s asian pop culture news stories. The return of Black Thunder, the case of the mysterious missing doujinshi via Swiss customs, the mystery of clothes made of Ziploc bags that cost hundreds of dollars, a sticky fingered tempura chef goes bare-handed into cookery, the return of YOSHIKI WATCH, and the wonders of an anime about blood cells. Stay tuned, gumshoes! It’s a weird one! 現時点の人生で一番好きな飲食店は、浜松駅前にある天錦。税込1,000円で最高の天丼が食べられる。店主は職人技を極めすぎて天ぷら油に素手突っ込んで卵黄揚げてる。これ口で言うとみんなに「は？」って顔されるけど言葉通りのパフォーマンスだから動画で見て。 pic.twitter.com/Ycu20RBECe — ゆく nʞnʎ (@Yuku1991) August 15, 2018
It’s not just Yoshiki anymore, “meat” the devil beef! 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. We’re always bringing you only the best of weird Asian pop-culture news!
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!
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.
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.
We seriously don’t plan to talk about Yoshiki every week, but look guys, we think he has all the infinity stones. This week in Animal Rights news: deer in Nara rebel, we defend rights for crows, and Japan invents beer you can drink at work. Warning: spoilers for Avengers Infinity War… sorta.
Getting married to your perfect 2D husbando, Max gets his kabedon revenge, little known Korean pop culture facts, and why the Mulan movie is definitely going to bring a dim sum palace to Disneyland.
Our April Fool’s episode is full of zero fakeouts, we promise. Meet Sir Julius Pringles, celebrate the new Mayor Slowpoke, join the Pacific Rim Love Live School Idol Festival, and be amazed at the hot cup ramen boys that are literally trying to bone noodles. Long live Lord Blape.
Communication problems, the Bleach live action movie, and the joy and wonder of Asian penis parks. We’re sorry.
