Episode 71.- The Princess Got Engaged!

Brent opened this week’s conversation by asking Motoi and Edgar about their thought’s on the recent arrival of Carl’s Jr. to Japan, specially because their presentation is very different to the image this fast food chain has in Japan. Next, we talk about our main topic, the engagement of Princess Mako and the debate about the role of women on the Japanese Imperial Family. Finally, the gang discussed about some weird posters with a nationalistic message that appeared in Kyoto.
