WTF Japan (18+)


So we have another panel that showcases some of the perverted stuff to come out of Japan…video of a girl be-ing thrown into the crotch of a full grown man dressed in BDSM leather, sexually charged commercials, and footage of used panties you can get in vending machines. Well this panel makes “all of that” look like a Care Bears special on the Disney Channel!! We are going to show you everything Japan has to offer in this panel…but don’t say we didn’t warn you. You’re literally going to be shouting “WTF Japan” more than once. PS: If you see people storming out, that’s a good sign to enter for the good stuff! *ID Checks at Door*
