Foreigners' Opinions Of Japanese People from "Arita and Matsuko and Men and Women"



Yep.
Wow.
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.

TRANSLATION NOTES

Burmese Harp
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 Chocolate
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".


Lamu

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.

      I'm surprised people check it regularly still, but that gives me reason to keep doing things on it once in a while at least.

      Can't promise anything but I'll try and do more. I know I always say that but yeah...
      Anyway, thanks again for following the blog!

  7. This was surprisingly good.
    I thought it would be more about stereotipcal things and racism but it was rather casual and funny. Looks like these foreigners really adapted to Japan by now.

    Thanks for your work Godzilla! Anything interesting like this is always appreciated. :)
