An example of this would be the movie "Macross: Do You Remember Love?" which hit theaters around 30 years ago in 1984. It’s so long ago in fact that some of you might not even have been born yet! Whether you’re hearing it for the first time or are filled with a sense of nostalgia upon listening to a familiar tune, you’ll have a good time!

This month’s topic is a famous quote from "Mobile Suit Gundam": You hit me twice, not even my dad hits me! What have you done Amuro?? The listener with the best response gets stickers as a prize!
*Ogiri is a Japanese traditional game in which the host poses a question and the players must respond with an answer that is funny and full of wit.

According to the program director this broadcast was created in hopes of, "Promoting subculture in Fukuoka, as anime, games, and the musical scores that are associated deserve much more attention than the currently are getting." You can practically feel the love for Japanese subculture and Fukuoka! Why not tune in Thursday night for some anime and game talk and have a listen for yourself!
