KIKU Temporary Off The Air

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Confusion about Lone Wolf with Cub

KIKU began airing the Lone Wolf with Cub series in 2018. There are three seasons of this program and we just completed airing the third and final season. Once season one was completed, we re-aired it in its entirety before we aired season two. When season two ended, we re-aired it in its entirety before beginning season three. Now that season three has ended, we’ll be re-airing it, too. This has some people confused because the final episode of season three was obviously very final. But we will be re-airing it beginning this Friday night.

Many people were also confused by a comment Retsudo made in the final episode. He called Daigoro his grandson, leaving many people wondering if there was some blood connection between them. But from what we understand, Retsudo was referring to Daigoro as “grandson of my heart” versus a blood relative.

Hope you enjoyed this series and will watch it again. Please share with us who your favorite character was. Will anyone say Abe?

Ja, ne.

Ba Duan Jin Exercise Video is Available on kikutv.com Now!

Ba Duan Jin Exercise VideoSince COVID-19 Stay Home Order came out, we started airing this short and easy exercise randomly after our shows and dramas.

This exercise was invented in China to keep everyone healthy with easy but effective movements. They are simple, slow movements so people in any age can try.
Even for more advanced athletes and martial artists, with the special breathing technique called, “Reverse Abdominal Breathing,” the benefit of this exercise can be accelerated.

Since the first air, we received many requests from our viewers to provide this exercise video. Unfortunately, we are unable to sell the DVD, but I am happy to announce that it is now available on our website.
