Fan mail #1: The listener received an email from their boyfriend the other day, asking which they like better: tuna mayo or cold tofu. Thus, the listener simply passes the question on to our hosts. Which?
The hosts have trouble understanding why one would even compare these two seemingly unrelated things. Gaki-san chooses cold tofu and Kame, who hates cold tofu, has no trouble choosing tuna mayo. The relative light mood of the show’s beginning soon turns into irritation for Gaki-san, however, when Kame disrupts her reading of the show’s email address — this time especially tirelessly.
Kame describes the above as her attempt at being a DJ.

Fan mail #2: Recently, something called “choitashi cooking” has become popular. (Choitashi cooking is simply taking a food and adding one or two unexpected things in it to significantly improve the dish.) The listener says one of their favorite choitashi is putting umeboshi and natto in cup noodles.
“Natto goes well with anything!,” Kame says. Gaki-san agrees: natto also goes well with things like toast, or curry and rice. And speaking of curry…
Fan mail #3: “Do the two of you like curry and natto? If so, try eating the two together!”
Kame also suggests Gaki-san to eat curry with natto, kimchi and mayonnaise. This is something Kame herself saw introduced on TV, and although she doubted it at first, she thought it was delicious once she tried it. Umeboshi, too, goes well with everything, the hosts say.
Fan mail #4: Another food-related question. The other day, the listener made some ohagi at home with their grandmother. “That’s all fine and good… but the ohagi we made ended up being the main course at our dinner table! There was only ohagi and miso soup!” Shocked, the listener was unable to ask if ohagi was really all they were going to eat, so they simply ate without a word. The listener asks if the hosts would be okay with just ohagi as their dinner.
Kame says she would have no problem with this — she thinks it would be funny. Gaki-san, on the other hand, doesn’t care much for ohagi to begin with. Kame makes fun of her co-host for this.

Fan mail #5: Good news! The listener has been job-hunting for a long while now, but they have just received a tentative job offer! They say they listened to “Sono Bamen de Bibiccha Ikenai jan!” just before the final stage of their interview process. This listener will be working with children, and so they ask the hosts: in their childhood, what kinds of teachers left the biggest impression on them?
Back in elementary school, Gaki-san had a teacher who could be strict or even scary during their lessons, but he would always join the kids when they were playing dodgeball during breaks. “He was like our big brother. We all loved him,” Gaki-san remembers. She thinks this teacher was like the stereotypical, good guy teacher you see on TV dramas.
Meanwhile, Kame says the teacher who left the biggest impression on her was “a teacher who caused a revolution.” As for his words that caused said revolution? “Yeah. Sure. Mechanical pencils are fine.” Up until those words, Kame had been dutifully erasing her pencil every single day. Yet, here she was, suddenly being told it was okay to use a mechanical pencil. She never used a normal pencil ever again since that day.

Gaki-san: We’re waiting for your messages! Go ahead and ask us anything, such as “is it true that Kame knows a magic spell that’s more powerful than anything Harry Potter can do?” Anything goes!
