We’ve given up on telling the news this week, so listen in on how Animal Crossing playthroughs, Tiger King watches, and Bollywood films are saving our quarantine lives.

The Buddies are being saved by the Animal Crossing explosion taking over the world. Let’s all hold hands and chant Tom Nook’s name while we get through this together and party on the internet. We also chat about digital performances post-mortem, and the secret of Shakey’s Mojo potatoes.
The Buddies are facing the quarantine by solving the mystery of the capsule machine sister, finding love in the toilet paper aisle, and washing hands with sexy anime babes. **We recorded this episode before we knew Mulan would be pushed back so uhhh, oops!
The world is in a panic about the coronavirus, so what do we do? Make a lot of jokes about it to alleviate your stress. Tune in as we see how quarantined shut ins in Japan have resulted in free manga, more slaves for Tom Nook, a shortage of sex toys, and an IRL Death Stranding-esque baby pod made by a concerned Chinese dad. Listen now, before we’re not allowed to joke about a pandemic anymore.
Mankind has finally flown too close to the sun. We reveal the creation of bath bombs that turn you into a cannibal’s delight, drop the bomb on the Overwatch anime, and terrorize you with a woman hanging from a bus as a marketing prank in Japan.
Apparently the MATCHING APP UNIVERSITY is a real thing in Japan and has the statistics to prove it! This week, our love-themed episode takes on chocolate gift giving in Japan, the correct way to confess love to someone, and the SOLDIER OF LOVE, Sailor Moon on her new ice skating show. What a week.
This week, we travel to outer space to talk about living that geek life. Japan builds a Space Force to maintain the friendly skies, the new Star Wars manga makes Luke into a hottie, and we discuss how to spot an otaku in the wild. Watch out! We bite.
2020 is full of anticipation for nerds everywhere as we await the coming of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake with an oddly sentimental 13 minute long commercial, an anime version of The Witcher, and of course, the yearly decree of who the most beautiful men in manga are.
This super sexy 69th episode is brought to you by a car that f***s, a McDonald’s pie.. FOR ADULTS ONLY, IFYAKNOWWHATIMEAN… and the not-so-sexy way to get someone to hate video games, thereby crushing their faith in humanity. Warning: We said the F-word so many times we lost count.
The new year is filled with promise for the weeaboos of the world! Final Fantsy 7 Remake will probably come out this year, the Nintendo World in Japan is like, almost done? Maybe? And hey, if all else fails, we are ushering in a new era with legit cosplayer Lai Pin-yu ruling over New Tai Pei City.
It’s 2020 and the Buddies are letting the Three Wise Holiday Spirits take over the intro of the podcast. We also cover the pain of deleting a hologram waifu, taking legal disco naps at bars in Osaka, purchasing our own DIY coffin set. so we can BURY OUR OLD 2019 SELVES IN THE GROUND. Listen at your own risk. Nicholas might getcha!
Welcome to our Winter Holiday Spectacular! We speculate wildly about what the last Star Wars is about, spin into a tirade on perfect Japanese husbands, master the art of ignoring children with photocopies of ourselves, and reveal Yoshiki’s end of 2019 scheme to enslave the members of KISS. We will be taking a break next week for Christmas, so enjoy this extra special episode on your holiday journeys!
We’re a little late to the freak out session, but OBAMA HAS BEEN COMPROMISED. Yoshiki has sunk his teeth into our favorite president, and well, at least he’s going to live forever now, right? We also debate more instant than instant ramen, video games creating introverts, and the empire of Chii-John and Shinjo Kun over US late night television.
If the Pope was an Avenger, would he be Tony Stark? And would Edward Snowden be the Hulk? We theorize on the extended anime universe version of real life people as Avengers, because apparently, we have lost our goddamn minds after Thanksgiving. Also, Max introduces the new segment #CRIMESLAMMERS. Submit those nonsense crimes to us via email@example.com. NO MURDERS, PLEASE.
Happy Thanksgiving! We are here to infuse your holiday with the blood of a thousand Neon Genesis Evangelion Angels, prove that “shonen” aren’t the ones reading Shonen Jump lately, and list all the benefits of marrying an otaku. And yes, this is a nerdy photo of Michelle on her wedding day with a Sailor Moon Rod.
How does one seduce a Pokemon? Let me count the ways. This week, we fight about the (de)merits of bubble tea, how to correctly kiss a Magikarp with bonus embarrassing first kiss stories, and the nit picky nature of Sonic the Cyclops Hedgehog.
All these years of devoting our lives to nerd-dom have finally paid off. A 120 meter Godzilla makes its way to Japan, the most advanced technology is harnessed to prevent food thievery at work, and science has proven that Naruto running is still COOL AS HELL… just not that effective.
November begins, and the Xmas jokes roll in, almost against our will. Today we talk about the new Star Wars Kabuki play, how not to be a wasteful human while eating sushi, and tell the tale of litterbugs meeting their match via undercover MMA wrestler Kai Asakura.
The Buddies decide which stories this week are Devils and which are Babies, thanks to the sake Michelle smuggled back from Japan! We talk about a DIY hot spring, the worst way to apologize to your SO, and get a CODE RED on the Yoshiki Watch.
An emotional episode turns into a tawdry one. Queer Eye: Japan makes us all unexpectedly cry, but then we are pulled back into reality with Sailor Moon condoms, and Fate/Stay Night x Axe Body spray makes ya wanna have too many abs and a tiny couch.
We are basically living in an alternate dimension this episode. We talk about the Naruto characters that could have been (PEACH BOY and no Rock Lee!!), the ADULT WORLD of disgusting Japanese popsicles, and the chance to feel up some shark’s private parts in Tokyo.
Learn Japanese while you poo! Get cursed by Yoshiki while watching Tokyo Fashion Week! Have a heated debate among friends about Coach x Naruto x Michael B Jordan! This episode takes some turns, and we ran out of jokes at the end, but hey, THIS IS ART, OKAY?
The Buddies are ready for the most spooky time of the year with this cursed episode featuring forbidden piranha ramen, a horror hotel in Kyoto, and an officially licensed Pikachu butt hole donut. Please don’t forget to tweet at us your best Pokemon butt jokes at #SenpaiBuddies to complete the spooky puzzle left to us by our donut forefathers.
It’s an episode of lovely boys, with a look at the new KFC Dating Game, doing ninja moves with Keanu Reeves in Japan, and patting Ash Ketchum on the back as he finally wins a Pokemon tournament for the first time ever.
This week, Michelle and Max discuss the various ways your favorite kind of anime girl can be the pizza you’ve always wanted to destroy your insides, and ponder the meaning of creating a Pokemon harem. Thank you, and goodnight.
In honor of our 50th episode, we take a look back down the memory lane of the curse of the one named Yoshiki. Many moons ago, he afflicted the Senpai Buddies with his dastardly curse, and now we have passed it all on to you over 50 episodes, “The Ring”-style. Listen to hear more about how the greatest bamboozle of the century took place as you innocently listened to our doomed podcast.
Our Summer Special episode explores the grave mistakes made in the name of social media fame. We discuss the Yellow Hat & Pizza Hut love triangle, what the inside of Pokemon look like as a delicious summer treat, and cringe at the McDonalds Japan drinks that make you wanna go, “WHOA, WAIT HOLD IN THERE, THIS IS A FAMILY ESTABLISHMENT.”
We urge new listeners to please JUST START WITH THIS EPISODE. The Buddies discuss the downfall of the Naruto run on Area 51, how the leaders of Nagoya broke the internet, and how THE YOSHIKI CURSE IS BACK and here for ROYAL BLOOD.
Perhaps humankind has finally flown too close to the sun. This week, we reveal the Taco Bell Japan plans to make you naked(ish), the saddest park panda in the world, and the monstrosity that is the anti-fart robot underwear. Summertime sadness, indeed.
The nation is gripped in Naruto fever, but the reason is… aliens. It’s definitely aliens. We chat this week about the weeaboo invasion of Area 51, the legend of how anime can get you married, and the absurdity of a bubble tea theme park. Happy Summer, you nerds!
San Diego Comic Con is here and Max is still trying to make his Raccoon Con thing happen, so there’s that. This week, we dish about the new Nintendo Land leaks from Universal Studios, chat about ramen covered fried chicken, and trick Max into googling “Large Bears in Japan.” Thank you, internet.
The new trailer for the live action Mulan movie is out and we’ve got some FEELINGS Y’ALL. Also, help send us to the Mulan 2020 premiere by tweeting shamelessly at Disney, WE BEG OF YOU. We also cover picking husbands via tea refills, and the latest Pokemon to represent Japanese citizens.
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.
Summer is here, and so is the drama. Chii-watch 2019 continues with Sinjo-kun (Chii-tan’s Ex) revealing he’s a Street Fighter gaming pro, summer snacks of chicken skin sizzle into your heart, and Japan’s government creates the ultimate idol all star group who just loves it when you donate blood.
Japan, why are you so awesome? Kids make a killing with two incomes, predatory birds have a taste for expensive dolls–err, we mean FIGURINES, and if you wanna marry your fandom, you can now have an OFFICIAL FINAL FANTASY wedding, with the blessing of Square Enix. What a TIME TO BE ALIVE, NERDS.
The eternal battle of whether to brave the outdoors of a Japanese summer, or just stay inside and sleep and get Snorlax points is upon us. Pokemon Sleep encourages us to become Rip Van Winkle-type trainers, the Japanese government tries to solve its Olympics heat crisis, and a discovery that you can get wasted on a few grapes… all this news and more and why we all should probably never go outside again.
