I remember right after 9/11, Americans were told to go on with their lives and to try and live as normally as possible. I know terrorist attack ≠ natural disaster, but is there really this great a cultural difference about how to deal with national tragedy?

- Lenfried Extreme: “She Bares All At Last!”:
It goes back further than that. But more or less you are correct. It was when they were first opened up to the West in the late 19th, early 20th century. American and European visitors complained about having to see certain kinds of sculptures and paintings around; it was just sooo offensive to their sensibilities. So that law was made by the Japanese due to foreign pressure.
- Top 25 Most Hotly Anticipated Manga Endings:
I think that in a lot of these cases on this list, the voters are afraid that the author will die before the manga properly ends. George RR Martin syndrome, if you will.
- Japanese Government “Will Stamp Out Anime Streaming”:
That’s actually true. Foreign pandering has been happening ever since Pokemon hit it big. Remember when they wrote out that Takeshi/Brock kid from Pokemon because some American soccer moms didn’t like his eyes?
- Euphoria Total BDSM Ero-Guro Anime:
That was a famous crime in Japan. I’m glad that there’s a website out there in English that has those bastards’ real names on it. Most Japanese websites don’t have the guts to do it.
- Suicide Seiyuu: “With My Face Like This I Can’t Go Back”:
I looked her profile up on her agency’s site. It said she’s also a practical nurse and an “authorized psychologist” (認定心理士), whatever that is.
