Episode #92

Ageless Kawaii

August 10, Fri. 2018 / August 24, Fri. 2018

Age ain’t nothin’ but a number, or that’s how the saying goes. If you agree then this episode has your name written all over it. We’re firm believers that kawaii knows no limits, so why would age be a restriction? That’s what makes kawaii style so rad! Take all those rules and toss them out the window!You’ll meet toddlers decked out in designer duds and a couple in their 60s, proving that twinning is winning. Never let a number stand in your way because a lot can happen, at any time, in your Kawaii life!

Episode #91

Upcycle Your Kawaii

August 3, Fri. 2018 / August 17, Fri. 2018

Growing up outside of Japan, being wasteful was frowned upon but there wasn’t a big deal. Meanwhile, Japan has a long history of not being wasteful. It even has its own word! Mottainai! Why let anything go to waste, when you can take whatever you have and make the most of it! Take that trash, and turn it into treasure! Misha and RinRin have some treasures in the studio while Mr. Yabatan is on the road again and you won’t believe where he ends up! Care for sushi in a sento?
