  Banzai - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Banzai is a Japanese word meaning "(live for) ten thousand years".
It is often associated with the actions of Japanese kamikaze pilots during World War II, when the word became a warcry of sorts for them.
The pilots reportedly shouted "banzai" as they rammed their planes into enemy ships.

 Banzai | PopMatters Television Review
Banzai repeatedly pops up on screen, set against a garish background, screeching at us to "PLACE BETS NOW!" as CNN-type tickers direct viewers to the show's website or a phone number where bets can be placed.
Banzai is aimed squarely at the semi-literate, short-attention-spanned young male demographic that made Jackass and Punk'ed hits for MTV.
Of course, to use the word "entertaining" to describe something so dim-witted as Banzai is more an indictment of the current state of network television than a praise of this show's dubious merits.

 Sayonara, "Banzai"
"Banzai" shows just how racist prime-time TV can get when network execs think no one's watching during the summer.The show makes "Amos and Andy" seem like "Masterpiece Theatre." But instead of stereotypical Stepin Fetchit-type fls, the show's main characters are two Stepin Fetchit-type Asians.
But you just can't excuse "Banzai" by saying the Asians in it are willing participants, and therefore we're laughing with them, not at them.
The word banzai literally means "may you live 10,000 years." As far as the show goes, let's hope not.
