  1. This is some EPIC stuff indeed! I trust a full on Paruru Trailer edit – full of Salty face death stares & eating gifs – lol. I truly would love to see an Action Movie parody from Japan that starred Paruru, Itano, & Yuko (Sasshi could be the antagonist ) and periodically Geesh could just pop up as ‘random extras’ characters (Handing out Hot Dogs or on the phone in the back trying to get “Screen Time”)- Make it like a “Naked Gun” / “Airplane” comedy – it would be HUGE!!

  2. This could be cool.
