For those who like being yelled at, well, here's a short television program just for you.
The name of the program is I Want Risa Yoshiki to Get Angry at Me. The show is only five minutes long, and it's broadcasted at around 1am this month only. So, it's not a mainstream show! But the program has been getting attention online on Japanese sites like Excite News, because it's rather unusual.
(Note that, because Japanese television shows start slightly before the hour or half-hour, there are sometimes short programs like this to fill broadcast time.)
On the show, Yoshiki talks to the camera as if you, the viewer, are her companion. Then, she gets pissed and goes off. What makes the show kind of amusing is the way she gets angry. She says some funny things! The whole thing is tongue-in-cheek, with 47 News saying the program appeals to both male and female viewers. Remember, though, this is a super short niche show broadcasted in the middle of the night.
As My Navi reports, the program actually debuted early last year under the name I Want a Beautiful Woman To Get Angry at Me. As you can see in an episode below, the woman talks directly into the camera, and her companion's replies are written on screen.
