What? :o
What did you do there?

Oh, and hi, nice to meet you by the way :)
haha i know. he just said it so casually. welcome Craig, now you have some explaining to do. u can't just say something like that n walk away ;)
I should use my time wisely for learnin' and stuff... but this caught my attention. Wtf is going on :D?
This is more bizarre then the post about how Matsumoto and Tanaka are supposedly getting caught between legs.
Could you please enlighten us :)?
I used to be one of the characters on the show. You may notice in some of the episodes a film crew of black guys that tell them to do really funny stuff. That was my character. It wasn't major but I did the role for about 5 years in maybe 15 to 20 episodes.
Cool. Must of been fun to be up close to the cast and such.

We are indeed a varied bunch across the world here, I'm from the UK. A lot of us can't understand Japanese but we have some very awesome and generous people here who donate time to translate episodes and the annual 24hr batsu shows to other languages so we can laugh along to the jokes. Though we can still laugh along to the jokes or games that are more about physical humour or visual gags either way.

Welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy it here.
also the one on the batsu games (Matsumoto Haunted Batsu and Onsen Batsu Game)?
maybe u have some "back stage secret" or stuffs to share :p
The African film crew with the cue cards?

Holy shiit :rofl:
Yeah I can't give up a lot of secrets, it's a bit taboo.
I can tell you the show is like a family.
We tape all day so theirs plenty of stuff that gets cut each week.
I've even taped & was totally cut because of so much better funny stuff.

Yep I think I went at least twice.
This was some of the occasions we went but wasn't on screen.

Hello Craig, it's great to have you in here!
Yes, Gaki has a big fanbase outside Japan and we hope one day they'll notice.
It's wonderful to have you here Craig! Like Kanzaki said Gaki has a large fanbase outside of Japan. Would you care to make a thread sharing some of your personal experiences with us? I'm sure a lot of people would love to hear what you have to say.
Yes, maybe you can start with how each Gaki member is like off camera. Are they friends off-screen? I know Matsumoto and Hamada are not friends but are they really tense off-screen? Is Yamasaki really hated by the staff(I believe it is a running joke but....)?

No obligation though.

Matsumoto and Hamada are not friends? I think, that it might be the other way around. They are good buddies, who know eachother since school. Behind the camera, when in the studio or in front of the camera, they might not talk much, because they could speak on a basis, nobody but them would understand.

I think, that Yamazaki is not hated by the staff. It's just part of the show. Same as Tanaka and his exaggerated anxiety. Just show.
