Who is Bakushō Mondai?

Bakushō Mondai is a Japanese comedy duo consisting of Yūji Tanaka and Hikari Ōta under the entertainment agency, Titan Inc. The comedians first met when they were students in the Department of Fine Arts at Nihon University, and they formed Bakushō Mondai in 1988 after dropping out of school. The name of the duo means literally "burst into/roaring laughter", "problem/question". The tsukkomi of the two, Tanaka, had a testicle removed because of testicular cancer, and this frequently elicits jokes by the group's boke, Ōta, as well as other personalities that they may be performing with. Ōta is generally the higher profile of the two, and frequently dominates shows that they host with his long-winded speeches.

From August 1995 through November 1997, Bakushō Mondai was involved with the broadcasting of a number of SoundLink Magazines and Games to owners of the Nintendo Satellaview system:

"King of After School" - SoundLink Magazine

"Bakushō Mondai Silicon Neighborhood Association" - SoundLink Magazine

StarPirates Assault: Bakushō Mondai Edition - SoundLink Game
