Yuri Kuma Arashi eps. 1 and 2

The first video is the episode hosted on YouTube; if it's down due to some bogus copyright claim, hit the jump (i.e., click Read more below) and watch the second video instead.


From the award-winning [citation needed] podcast Two Fat Guys Talk comes the Carlos and Dave Anime Rave! It's pretty self-explanatory, really.

Carlos and Dave tackle something Carlos is looking forward to and Dave says he isn’t but probably secretly is: Yuri Kuma Arashi! We watch episodes 1 and 2. Dave makes bear puns. Carlos gets angry at said puns. It’s all bear-ly tolerable.
