Interesting links...

The following is a link to a Wired article that sheds some interesting light on the Japanese culture. As many of us are Anime nuts and all of us like to learn, I thought I'd pass it on.

This second link is a very interesting Flash animation that is used on our ink manufacturer's (Toyo) Japanese website. After reading the Wired article and then seeing this, it was almost... eerie. :)

OK... Now I'm SURE that Japanese popular culture is way too weird for my Western standards...

My g/f and I so should have been born Japanese - she loves all stuff cute - and like big robots and weird sci-fi animation :P

NO

Don't wish you were Japanese. Ever. YOu could be affected by radiation :P

I doubt...
