Just Say Noh. But Also Say Kyogen: Crash Course Theater #11

This week on Crash Course Theater, Mike is taking you to Japan to have a look at Noh theater. Noh, and its counterpart Kyogen are some of the most revered theater forms in Japan, and are still performed today. Today you’ll learn how Noh grew out of traditional Shinto dances, what a Noh theater looks like, and how audiences managed to sit through 8 hour performance in the days before memory foam theater seats. (hint: it was the Kyogen)

Tenzushi: The Sushi God of the South

Allow us to introduce you to Isao Amano, head chef of Tenzushi, who many say makes the best sushi in Japan. It’s a very unique style of sushi, unlike any of the high end omakase sushi places we’ve been to, and is exceptionally innovative and maddeningly delicious. We traveled down to Fukuoka, then to Kokura, so we could have some Heavenly Sushi.

What to Eat in Rome

We spent 2 weeks in Rome, Italy, where we ate pasta, pizza, and home cooked meals all day, every day. We asked people living in Rome what places they eat at, and we’re sharing the best of that list here, in our guide on what to eat in Rome.

Here’s our list of addresses:

2017 was a great year for video games, especially when it comes to original art styles. Cuphead, Bendy and the Ink Machine, and Night in the Woods are just a few of the gorgeous games released last year, but this is not the first time innovative animation has played a major role in gaming. In fact there’s actually a game from 2006 that goes as far as implementing its art style into its gameplay mechanics! In this episode, GG will reveal the history behind the under-appreciated game, OKAMI!
