    These sunglasses are so rude. I mean even if he wasn't a fucking mob guy, that's really impolite. You're indoors. Take them off and look him in the eyes like a normal person. Don't be rude.

    He’s literally just calling out joeys lack of social manners/professionalism towards strangers which is why he was saying the things he was if he didn’t like something he was doing , but other than that the interview was cool. As other people are saying he was wanting the same level of respect he was giving back. Common manners, respect and professionalism towards others is all.

    Yakuza are not totally bad people, mostly there are exaggerated stories. The fact the ending shows pretty great, which by the way I know why he received something, is definitely worth the respect. If you respect them they would respect you and some would give you something in return just like how Joey received a watch from Mr. Tyson. Mr. Tyson find Joey respectful that he gifted him. If Mr. Tyson doesn't felt any respect then for sure Joey would receive a pretty bad hit. If Mr. Tyson felt a bit of respect then he won't be giving anything but at least you won't get hit or something or he might give something but not that valuable. I was definitely waiting for the end, wanting to know what would Mr. Tyson do to Joey and I must say I too felt that Joey deserves it. The fact that a complete foreigner speaks Japanese and wanting to know more of the culture plus Joey always follows the corrections of Mr. Tyson then he definitely must get something good.

    1) Tyson is kind of cool, really 2) He's been nice and brave being so open about the interview, he seems down on earth. 3) Joey you still need to learn xD and please, also, as for the GACKT interview, people are not just their labels, I kind of sighed sometimes, Tyson was more than a former Yakuza during this interview (I see how the fact that you talked about cooking relaxed him for example), it was 12-13 years ago to him, there could have many other kinds of questions, like how he lives and has been adapted nowadays. But I appreciate your continuous effort, get going :).

    Man, Tyson-san is very cool throughout the interview. How he always look at Joey's eyes when either of them are talking. It doesn't like an interview, more like a dialogue. How he asked Joey's name in the beginning, is actually make things less awkward.
