    Unless they're the kind that collects manga, eats pocky, listens to nothing but J-Pop, and believes anime to be "kiddy cartoons".

    Like, I think the whole WWII thing kinda had a somewhat profound impact on their culture as a whole as well.



    like... some of the events and stuff involved, and with the rebuilding, add to the uniqueness.

    That was one of the points in my major essay - I think that the American occupation was the most influential period in Japanese history. There was a period there were Japan really wholeheartedly adopted Western culture - even moreso than the Americans wanted (Marxism, for example). But the US's fading interest in Japan for Vietnam, and general fatigue with the occupation, caused a return to the old values - but seen through a modern lens.

    It's an amazingly interesting period, because you see these people jumping at the ideas of communism and trade unions as soon as you remove the old power-structures - it goes to show that these cultural factors which some academics see as almost racially inherent, weren't as strong an influence as you might suspect.

    the country is nearly 99% ethnic Japanese, they just don't run into foreigners in the flesh very often.

    I don't think it makes it overseas very often but most blacks are still portrayed minstrel show style in cartoons over here, you might even see a person in costume with a black leotard and blackface makeup jumpng around with a spear (not kidding)

    also for future reference here is the man as far as anime goes

    What Senj was saying was "Why does personality type A identify with anime? Here's why." He wasn't saying that all anime watchers are dorks - just trying to understand why anime appeals to people who are.

    Also, given his name, I have a hard time believing that he thinks Japanese culture is solely the domain of mouth-breathing nerds.

    It is a kinda common theme. Having a significant portion of your population killed, a couple of your cities vaporised, and being left in a state of near denial about the atrocities of your troops, can do that to your cultural mindset.

    Outside of stuff with giant robots, i don't think it is really that common though.

    The thing is that the personality he's decrying has nothing to do with anime, and everything to do with liking Japanese versions of their hobbies. The person who enjoys music might purchase only J-Pop, or the gamer buys JRPGs. To fabricate this connection between anime and Japanophilia and use it as evidence that anybody who likes anime is unwashed and unwanted detritus of society is inherently insulting. Watching anime has nothing to do with the sort of extreme behavior that characterizes weeaboos.

    Yeah, though something like Saikano, which has no giant robots, is perhaps the most blatantly damning anti-war thing I've ever seen in any medium. There are other kinds of anime, though, yeah.

    I suspect this thread is in response to weeaboos acting informed by spouting bullshit about their adopted "culture". Imagine a poster who called himself a frankophile posting this:
    I'll be heading over to France in a few days, yay! I'm bringing along lots of white flags and cheese so I can blend in with the locals. Any tips on where I should go to find the best cooked frogs? (^~_~^)

    No-one's saying it's bad - we're just saying that you shouldn't mistake hobby-knowledge for real research. I mean, I'd call a Francophile out on their bullshit if they tried to tell me that French foreign policy was purely a product of things he'd learned second-hand from Luc Besson movies.

    I am an anime fan, and my curiousity of Japan stemmed from the thought process of "hmm, I'll bet that learning more about the customs and culture of the country would not only help me to better understand this show, but it would also be interesting and educational, yay pursuit of knowledge++"

    but every fandom has its own stunted population; the origin of these other fandoms is usually here in the same country though, so that's one reason why a lot of anime dorks assume Japan is entirely comprised of ninjas, ramen, and pocky.

    I think it's more of the fact that the US is pretty much the leading media provider to the entire world. And Japan is... uh... a voracious consumer of media. The reverse also is fairly true... the US watches a shitload of TV and movies (not to mention the games), and compared to pretty much every other country in the world outside of the US, Japan makes a shitload of TV shows and movies. *shrug*

    Yeah but that's about 98% pure kitsch that would make Fred Durst and Rob Schneider green with envy.

    Edit- funnily enough though, there are subcultures/followings of Indian films in Japan. I don't know if it was just a fad in the past, but I know that there were fan clubs for Rajinikanth, the biggest film star in South India. Pretty kitschy stuff.

    the Japanese are no strangers to kitsch though and neither should big anime fans be. It would seem that there's a similar kitsch to art ratio when it comes to anime and manga, although I'm sure it's not quite as bad overall as Bollywood.

    Japan does have an overactive media industry (even if you don't count all the porn, which is an unconceivable amount no doubt) but it's not like other countries are dormant. China puts out more and more blockbusters every year (with a healthy amount of domestic market kitsch) as does Thailand. Korea is a big film player too.
    Countries like the Phillipines and Singapore are slowly emerging. Most blockbusters have pan-Asian success, regardless of their country of origin. The only exception to this is Bollywood, which is its own absurd little world.

    I've skimmed through the thread a bit, but I have my own thoughts on "Japanophilia."

    I agree with a previous post on Americans consuming electronic media with a voracious appetite. How many kids now a days haven't played or seen a game from Nintendo? It all starts with somewhere and that is a great starting point. "Hey, this is from there? Cool! What else." I know video games first started my interest with Japanese culture and business, which is a fundamental reason for my education.

    Why do others do it? There's the social outcast thing. But, also, Japanese products are becoming more and more present. Look at Adult Swim: Naruto, Ghost in the Shell. 4Kids showed One Piece in the morning. So, when you have kids growing up with sort of thing, they'll learn to love it.

    I don't think there isn't less "ophilia" of other cultures to those devoted to it, but really, what's around most people most of the time? An amalgam of influences. A lot of people in power were white Europeans here who brought a lot of culture/food with them. What's to expect? People here have heard of a crepe or a piece of schnitzel or pizza. When "the mother countries" are so prevalent in your life but another culture seems to be "creeping in" and "new," what would most people find interesting?

    I think that in a cutural sense, Japan stands out. European countries tend to be largely similar, but with different flavours. Obiously perception plays a big role, but what really matters is that Japanese culture stands out.

    Take anime, for example. I don't know much about anime history, but I know that when I hear anime, I think Japan. I don't think Vietnam, Korea or China. Japan. The fact that Japan has so many disinct products it's known for makes it easy for foreigners to recgonise a Japanese product. For example, there is a video game genre of "Japanese" RPG's. No other video game genre is associated with a nation; you will not find German shooting games, or French soccer games. Just shooters and sports games. So so far, we have JRPG's and anime. There is also manga, a distinct form of comic book. European and North American comics share styles, but manga has a style all it's own.

    My point is that I think the basis of Japanese adoration is how distinct it is. It's natural for those who are bored with what they have to look to something new and exciting; Japanese culture is the shiny, panties-in-vending-machines culture that many are looking for.

    Dirty, dirty lies. Can't say about right now, but France has produced a staggering amount of timeless animation. Hell, a whole bunch of anime from the 80s were France-Japan collaborations.

    The Triplets of Belleville was utter trash.

    Japan has Cowboy Bebop. Pwn.
    Turn the sound off the next time you watch The Triplets of Belleville. You will gain great respect for the movie once you get what I'm talking about. If not, fall into a well and die.

    East. West. Some of us like their stuff, some of them like our stuff. Some like it too much. Some of them like it too much as well. Everyone else not involved ridicules them, and everyone involved ridicules those as well. Both get on high-horses and think of themselves as superior. It's a vicious cycle. A stupid one.
