An aspect of Japan that I think makes it hard for their culture to be ruined is their xenophobia and close-knit culture. Anyone who goes to Japan and does not try to assimilate will not be very welcomed into society, but in Europe, many do not bother to assimilate, or even learn about the culture, and just bring their culture with them completely ignoring the country they are going to. Also, many of the people going to Japan are going their because they want to and already have an interest in the culture there, meaning most of the immigrants to Japan will likely be well-versed and actually give a shit about the culture. As far as I know, many of the immigrants to Europe are either refugees, or are going there for better opportunities. These two groups of people will care a lot less about the country they are going to and more about their own survival, while the type of immigrants that come to Japan largely care about experiencing Japanese culture. Simply immigrating to place does not infect it with foreign culture, and the very fact that so many immigrants to Japan view it as a "foreign paradise" is one of the things that keeps its culture from being ruined.
I don't think Japan-obsessed creeps will stay that way if they manage to get permanent residency. It took 7 years for this guy. Probably the foreign paradise wonder would wear off by then.
There's no need to concern troll. If the Japanese are overly permissive and can't get their shit together, then they deserve it but I doubt it.
Anyone have experience with different forwarding services to get things from Japan?
I have used Tenso, and it's been reliable but it is a bit expensive.
I used to have a guy. He was the best.
I haven't been watching anything
Never been a fan of low quality harem shit/isekai but I recently gave in and watched Zero (the 2006 one). And yeah, it's exactly what I expected. Shallow storyline, mediocre animation, template characters, bland art style. And to think that this "genre" only grew over the years is saddening. I really hate how so many tropes are deemed necessary today and many shows seem awfully formulaic.
Even Goblin Slayer for example has the harem trope (i.e. all cute females being interested in the MC despite him having almost no redeeming qualities) for SOME reason even though its premise, world and animation should be enough to warrant viewers/readers. But yeah, apparently the usual anime fan can't consume the medium without tits and sex on their mind 24/7. Yeah yeah, I know, it's basically me saying "Stop liking what I don't" but I don't care. I think many shows would be better off without fanservice.
Sorry for that rant. Makes me sound like I hate the medium but I still like stuff even with the cheap tropes, it's just that I would like it even more without them because they feel like a cheap appeal.
I feel the same. It's the only medium I actually bother watching. So ironically, as a result I have many negative things to say.
