This week's show is a fun one, in which we review the first mini-album by ridiculously popular model-turned-Yasutaka-Nakata-pet Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and the landmark 50th single by ubersexy pop queen Koda Kumi. This episode will be full of eyeball toast and tv-safe lesbian sex, so give it a listen!

Notes follow after the jump...
