While it doesn’t mention it as a rule, it is widely thought of as a rule by scholars specializing in Japanese. It is one of the main reasons why if you look at a history book and see references to the great Samurai of Japan, their names will usually be in the Japanese order, while post Meiji restoration Japanese will most of the time have their name in the western order.
Personally I have always thought it was a bit rude to switch the order or westernize the names of Japanese people, but I also have a bit of a different view in comparison to other people seeing as I had teachers asking if I wouldn’t be so kind as to change my name to fit the Icelandic language better.
Apparently it was hard for them to accept that some people are proud of their family names and don’t want to be called “whatever-son”

    The figma line excels with getting a good likeness of the 2D counterparts in a poseable figure but fails when making a character with exposed arms and legs. Most joints are usually hidden fairly well when clothed. Open arms and legs, however… bleh.. Dem joints look clunky and weird. It’s not horrible, though.

    There is an “idol” anime every season, there is even one this season locodol. Akb0048 was trash, it was a simple cash in and nothing more. Love live is also another popular idol anime.
