It’s a fantastic look into the idol culture here in Japan and I highly recommend everyone to check it out. To find out more about the idol culture in Japan I’ve invited Alice on the show.

I miss the show

Not sure what is going on in Anthony's life that is preventing him from doing the show, but I do hope all is well and that it is just an extended break, and not the end of the show entirely. The show is too great, and Anthony too good a host to fade away for good. Wishing Anthony the best!
