  • I just started the video and I like the guy, simply because he seems to be trying to have a proper conversation with Joey as a human, instead of simply acting like a former-yakuza for the online audience.

  • Joey should’ve prepared himself and use a formal wear instead rather than cosplaying as immortal Tatsu or do some further research about the Yakuza I get that his trying to have a bit of humor around Tyson but I think most of the Yakuza members are serious when it comes down to their business

  • Will you go to Heaven when you die ? Have you ever Lied, stolen, used Gods name in vain (such as OMG), Had sex outside of Marriage ? Truth is...We have all sinned and broke Gods laws. And sin is what sends us to Hell. But even though we broke Gods laws Jesus paid the fine by dying on the cross. Jesus born of a virgin lived a sinless perfect life something we could not do. Took the punishment we deserve by dying on the cross for our sins. Then 3 days later rose from the dead and was seen by hundreds of eye witnesses. So please today repent and put your Faith and trust in Jesus before its too late.

  • NGL, the scene at 03:41 would've made me crap in my pants for real if I had been in Joey's place (especially 04:04). Tyson is SERIOUSLY intimidating when he's upset. Jeez. If this had been like in the Yakuza games, he would've started manifesting a colored aura around his head and shoulders, lol. Also, Joey claims that he's not intimidated by Tyson, yet keeps shaking his legs. Sure, buddy, haha. And lastly, I'm amazed that Tyson seemingly has played the Yakuza games. Now I can't shake the image of real-life patriarchs and captains playing them too. Maybe the "Real Yakuza use gamepads" disclaimer IS real after all.

Like bruh, Joey, he's a better interviewer than you are ahahahha. And his answers are so logical, and he askes questions so you are more specific, it's 10 out of 10. he seems also very proper. nice man indeed.

  • I understand that a lot of people like subbed anime or dubbed anime but I can't watch some because I'm 4 minutes into this video I've already had the closet about five or six times because I can't read that fast (so pretty much 4 minutes of video is 6-7 minutes of watching so a 30ish minute episode would take around 45ish minutes, so a short 12 episode series dubbed takes around 4 hours but subbed would take roughly 4 1/2- 5 hours to watch as well as being choppy)

I’m Japanese, but wearing sunglasses ( indoors when u don’t need it) during an interview would come off as extremely rude in Japan. So maybe Joey told him beforehand..?
