    The Japanese aren't strange as a matter of fact they may have a quirky sense of humor. Another cultural another view at life and how to laugh at life.

    I had to stop watching this after 30 seconds because I am eating soup and wouldn't want to make a mess.

    The Japanese are a strange lot, but in a good way. And man, do they LOVE to travel!

    Some of the crazy Japanese TV game shows used to appear on US channels here. Contestants dressed in outrageous costumes, doing some pretty dangerous stunts, as well as being very humiliating.

    And sometimes including rather risque humor, much of it edited out for the US audience. It struck me that the Japanese are usually very reserved & formal in their daily lives & dealings, yet there are certain times when they are just the opposite, provided it has group approval, and everyone participates. A kind of social "relief valve" to compensate for the rigidity of the ordinary routine.

    Being an American living in Japan... all I can say is...
    I don't get the humor here. I really don't get it.
    But then, I'm sure they don't get me either. LOL

    Maybe 10 years afo Air Nippon Airways was going to open a new hotel in DC, intending to call it ANUS hotel. Somebody fortunately clued them in.

    That video was... I don't know what that was. I'm sure Freud could say what it was though.

    I've heard the Japanese are a repressed society. Strict social rules and martial traditions are conflicting with a modern world. I guess these are ways of getting that repressed energy out.

    This is exactly true. I lived there for three years, and ESL students have a really hard time with sarcasm for this reason. Unless something is obviously a joke, it's hard to get them to laugh.

    Then again, these are all sweeping generalizations. I'm sure there's some Japanese forum with a thread gawking at The Biggest Loser or The Real Housewives of-- shows.

    The weirdest part of that is that their dresses are so long...usually their way shorter than that icon_razz.gif

    ...and yo-yo's were originally intended as a killing weapon FYI

    This is fiction. It's a manga and they made a movie of it. It's not an actual crime group...

    Their culture is very different and can somehow look strange to us, but their movies are waaayyy better than ours. Not sure if this thread's movie sequence is a great example, but usually, their movies have very deep second degree analysis and are extremely revelant of their society's deepest issues.
