I just finished watching Episode 5 and damn, that was one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen on any TV show. :blink I can't muster up anger or even disgust at Futaro however, because he's obviously completely insane.

Toward the end, he tries to say a few Japanese words and everyone starts laughing. I couldn't tell if they were laughing at what he said or t...

Some comments on the first episode. I like the premise of the show.
