LOL I think that watch may have been Mr. Tyson's way of calling you a pu55y. It is an amazing looking watch tho..

Not gonna lie, when Joey was talking about wanting to get a tattoo, and Tyson asking him whether he or societal rules were more important, I got shivers, because that man was SO on the point there. Fantastic vidja by the way, and can't wait to see that Led Zeppelin tattoo :D

This was a terrible interview it’s like watching a teenage boy whose scared afraid anxious and not prepared meeting a bad boy yakuza asking basic and some ridiculously dumb questions. No delivery in his Japanese just mumbling under his breath not bold or brave approach in interviewing

The way he started the interview... I'm a little scared for his life. There's a level of respect and style of speaking, as well as a lot of body language rules when speaking with someone involved with Mafia activity anywhere in the world. I don't know whether or not to see it as balls of steel joking about or the product of a posh life.

I can see why you wouldn't explain the watches brand name LOL An answer to why people think the Yakuza are cool is the fact many movies, tv shows, books, stories, tend to romanticize them, much the same way the do it with Italian mobsters. I have been told I have a very mobster type face, with my scar over my eye, and resting assassin face. I think I look more like Keanu Reeves.

That was really interesting to watch and listen to. I still find the Japanese language and culture something that the rest of the world could learn from. At least that's what I think. Just make me want to learn more and even the language way better than I understand, and not for anime either lol.

No one is gonna mentioned why Joey took his shades off? Actually that's very disrespectful. People usually take their sunglasses off to speak to people and make eye contact; joey realized this quick, and took them off.

"I expected more intimidation" This dude literally tells Joey off like at least once every other minute by either telling him off for not introducing himself, for crossing his arms, for being switchy with topics etc. yOU EXPECTED MORE INTIMIDATION I WOULD HAVE CRIED IN THIS INTERVIEW HE SCARES ME haha Like not saying he was unreasonable or intimidating like "do this or else" but god fucking damn the atmosphere around him when he told Joey off was terrifying o-o

I don’t know if it was because Joey was a bit scared or he just didn’t put enough time to prepare himself with questions. He didn’t act respectful sometimes and maybe shouldn’t of been too playful or worn a cosplay.

For those who are wondering here it is...... So, what does OMECO mean in English? Those typing the name into Google verbatim won’t find much. The name is, in fact, an altered spelling of the word “omeko” which, in the Kansai dialect of Japanese, means “vagina”.

A lot of the questions you asked were proper but a lot just made the interview awkward for him which made it awkward for you making me awkawrd for ex : "Can u tell me any heroic stories .. ." something like that . how the fuck can anybody calls themselves a hero hello ??? Nobody can do that . and unsecerily making it awkward

I get that you run an anime channel, but you invited over a real ex-yakuza and you decided to show up in a cosplay, give them a fake name when they asked for your name, and wear sunglasses for half of the interview that was conducted indoors. This was painful.
