KVR Live 3: Japan Sinks: 2020

In this live, I address the recently released Japan Sinks: 2020 anime series from Science Saru Studios and directed by Masaaki Yuasa.  I give you my reactions and thoughts on this incredible anime.  It’s bizarre, funny, sad, and surprising!  It departs significantly from the original Komatsu book.  I analyze the Japanese rap battle about what it means to be Japanese, the old man’s murder spree while riding a mobility scooter, and the many bizarre deaths in this fascinating story.

KVR Live 2: Fandom Discourse, Honda, War Crimes

In this live, I answer questions from listeners about some complex issues, such as fandom behavior online, Ishiro Honda’s time in a command position at a comfort women camp, who really rebuilt Japan after the war, economic circumstances that led to the Japanese Economic Miracle, the disparate impact on minorities that gatekeeping has, and the level of popularity of rescinding Article 9 from the Japanese Constitution.
