Web Video / Japanarchist
is a humorous youtube channel hosted by Sonny, an American living in Japan. The channel started off as a news story reaction channel but quickly grew to include a set small animated shorts that revolved around Sonny's early life in Japan
known as Found In Translation, and live action skits. Many of which are satirical looks at Japanese culture and news and western interpretations of Japanese culture.
Occasionally Sonny has another host Mika, who hosts the Japanese Girl Explains
segments, which have proven to be some of his most popular videos
