Gaijin Kanpai Ep. 177 - God Bless The Cookies

God, I love cookies! I practically pray to the gods of butter and sugar every night before I go to bed. Wait, what do you mean 'not that kind of cookie?' We’re supposed to be talking about internet cookies? Made of 1s and 0s? Lame. But, hey! Without internet cookies I wouldn’t have received a birthday gift from the listeners (thanks again for that!).

GK PV Play: Supernatural Beings Edition

Many music videos are released every month in Japan to promote the latest single or album coming out. Though we often talk about the music videos that accompany the music we review, some PVs slip through the cracks. This week we task our lovely writer with the difficult job of reviewing some of the recent vids to make their way all the way from Japan to our computer screens in the US.
