Denpa Shonen

Listening to: My office chair squeaking.


This has become my new favorite show. It's called Denpa Shonen. It's essentially a reality show about one naked man who is locked in a room with nothing but magazines, a radio, telephone and postcards. He must try to survive one year in this room, living off of things he can win in contests.

For those not familiar, Japanese magazines often have contests that require you to send in postcards in order to win them. So if a magazine is giving away free body wash, you'd send in as many postcards as possible in hopes of being drawn as a winner of said body wash.

It's pretty entertaining. I think the premise and the fact that he's a mangy looking Japanese fellow makes it that much funnier.

Remember to watch with subtitles.

Nasubi-san, ganbatte ne!
