A game of "Go Fish" is disrupted.


Everyone gets mad and starts cursing each other individually to the Kabuki no Noroi.
(From here on in, Kenji's wife is played by Carrie Wiita, far R.)

girl's gotta do.  She curses everybody... to the BON JOVI NO NOROI!

EPISODE FIVE (10/27/07)


And so, a Bon Jovi band (led by the Guitar Man, Bobby Stapf) annoyed the kabuki bands.

TV's Patrick Duffy is vanquished when everbody teams up for a cover
of the "Step By Step" theme and play him offstage.  And the Kabuki Master
vows vengeance on Kenji - and curses him to the FREE CANDY NO NOROI!
Yes, we were bribing the audience for votes by promising them free candy.

EPISODE EIGHT (12/8/07)


Summoning the Free Candy Fairy with the power of Bon Jovi.


The Kabuki Candy Fairy (Henry Dittman) appears!


He passes out free candy to the audience!

The Kabuki Master and his wife make up, but Kenji
is deaf to the pleas of his own wife to stop being evil.


Steve and April begin flirting hot and heavy,
much to Harold's consternation.

The Free Candy Fairy, sick of being ignored in favor of everybody's
personal melodramas, curses them all to the SANTA CLAUS NO NOROI!
Says a resigned and tired Harold:  "Sure.  Sure.  Why not?"

EPISODE NINE (12/15/07)


Santa (Hans Gelpke) joins the Kabuki band in torturing Harold.


$4.50/hr Santa and his Elf (Megan Crockett),
who is pregnant with a li'l Santa baby.


Harold theatrically objects to Steve's romancing of April.
It's the only language these stagey bastards understand.


The Elf threatens to spank anybody who says anything
mean at Christmastime.  To Kenji, this is not a threat.
The look on Harold's face evidently speaks for the audience
as well, for this was the end of KABUKI NO NOROI!

(In episode ten, they were going to be cursed with Bubbles.  Uh... yeah.)
