On this episode of Bakacast Briefs, we take an trip to Bizarro World, where the only show that manages to impress us is Highschool of the Dead. Of course, it doesn’t impress for any good reasons, but still. Weird, huh?
Anyway, in addition to the reviews, we briefly discuss a minor controversy concerning an ad for an Arizona sushi bar and answer some very strange Twitter questions from our faithful listeners.
The shows we talk about, as usual, are:
Highschool of the Dead #8 (sadly, the infamous supersonic boob scene video was taken down off YouTube)
Fuji TV, hearing about Hugh Jackman’s love of sushi, decided to take him on a tour of Tsukiji’s famous sushi restaurants. Sound familiar? That’s because NTV did the same thing a few days ago. Hugh was polite and friendly as always.
Of course, these little Tsukiji trips give hope to Hugh’s thousands of fans; they now realize that if they work hard, stay in school, star in an international blockbuster, and are voted People’s Sexiest Man Alive, then they too can get free sushi.
On a recent trip to Japan to promote his new film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Hugh Jackman took the opportunity to learn about Japanese culture by visiting a shrine, a calligraphy shop and a few of Tsukiji’s famous sushi restaurants.
