Cultural Exchange Part I

Hey, guys. I’m Bushu. I’ll be a guest writer on this … erm… amazing blog? As Ruki very vaguely explained, we’re kind of doing a “challenge”, more like a project that’s supposed to motivate her to write more, or a project for me to commandeer this NERD BLOG and turn it into an awesome hang-out for…. erm… supermodels and ugh… famous people in general. Except for Mark Wahlberg. Fuck that guy.

I’ll be reviewing silly children’s cartoons and she’ll be posting reviews on cool stuff like games with violence and movies that change your life in a deep way, like the Expendables. Yeah… The Expendables. Cool.

Kidding aside, I hope you’ll enjoy this reading experience and I hope you’ll tolerate a little abuse from my side.

Without further due, here’s my first review:



I can’t understand what my husband is saying


Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken

Buckle up, cowboys, cause this has been a wild series to watch.

What’s nice about it:

  • I liked the fact that if I make coffee and check if the water is boiling, I skip two episodes.
  • I liked the fact that it is very hard to follow, since every scene lasts as long as a teenager having sex for the first time
  • I find it impossible to keep up with each character, even though there are few of them
  • It has hip, cool pop culture problems, like gender-neutral characters with gender-neutral character problems
  • They ate ramen in this one episode

What’s not nice about it:

  • It got way too real
  • It was too cute
  • Virtually no violence

I’ll be honest, it was nicer than I expected. While it’s very short, it pretty much summed up how people feel about relationships, about their insecurities and how easy it is to get over them if you just communicate with the person next to you. I found it very interesting how it sent a strong, clear and sometimes deep message, such as the fact that you never really know how to act towards your significant other, no matter how much you have or don’t have in common with that person, how easy it can be for others to confuse you and make you doubt you and your partner’s future and how things fall into place once you choose to be honest and give voice to your concerns in a sincere and intimate way.

If you manage to make time and watch it (which isn’t that hard, really, both seasons last for like, an hour), I think you’ll be confronted with problems that you either faced or will face.

Or maybe ditch it and go watch Snatch. Snatch was a cool movie.

    To motivate Ruki into writing more content I recommend investing in a whip 😉
