Foreigners' Opinions Of Japanese People from "Arita and Matsuko and Men and Women"
I've actually done a post!
It has been half a year, basically, since the last one.
I'm sorry to those who have depended on this site as a source for Japanese shows, especially since it seems like less people sub now than they used to as well! However this blog just remains a sort of hobby, and is something that my life isn't based around. Especially nowadays, as you would have noticed.
To be honest, I haven't watched a full episode of Japanese TV for about a year now (I think). At least, I don't watch it regularly like I used to in the past, and I've lost interest in it too.
Even so, I am still interested in bringing you guys some nice treats, sometimes. So be patient and you might get one from time to time.
This one is from a show which has since been cancelled from TV (I think). I thought they had some relatively interested episodes though. Particularly episodes featuring international people expressing their opinions about Japanese people, society and culture.
.........and so that's what I've subbed.
I thought you people would find it interesting too, since I assume that a lot of you would be like the guests on this show.
Hope you enjoy it.
GET FROM MEDIAFIRE
Burmese harp is a famous Japanese book and film set in Burma at the end of WW2. It is a standard novel that school kids in Japan read. I highly recommend people to read or watch the film.
Ghana may be world famous as a huge exporter of cocoa beans, but the perception that chocolate and Ghana are connected is much stronger in Japan due to a popular chocolate brand name called "Lotte Ghana Chocolate".
Made a bit of a mistake in the translation.
The Englishised name of this character is actually "Lum".
But ahh well. Fuck it.
This is a scantily clad alien character from the anime series Urusei Yatsura.
Won't be a particularly nice sight if an old dude was wearing this costume.
