Gaijin Kanpai Ep. 176 - I Am... Esperanza

Up to bat this week are the aforementioned Kana with her fourth studio album “Love Place,” as well as the first single since abingdon boys school’s hiatus, “WE aRE.” We do get derailed a bit during the single review (because my co-hosts are old and hard of hearing) but it doesn’t take much to get us back in the game!

*I swear this isn’t a cult name but the actual title of her official fanclub.

ARROGANT NOTES!
