    Aha!

    I guess I just like a lot of the shows and games. The Japanese live action department is horrid(Hong-Kong action flicks FTW), but the animation is just something that always comes up relevant to my interests. The animes are usually nothing new, but some really strike a chord in me. Serial Experiments Lain had me thinking about it for days. I don't feel validated by any work of Fiction. I feel validated by whatever I learn from it. Even if all I learned was that ponytails are sexy. I still have my own impression so I'm still alright, or something.

    Also, the history and mythology is fun to read about when I'm on a wiki-binge. That and WW2. Also read about terrorists groups in Japan.

    The games? JRPG formula is pretty fun. After playing so many of them it's just become a habit to pick the latest one up. It's not like they're more expensive than any other game on the shelf. All games are pretty unoriginal these days.
    As for import? Japanese games are the ones I almost always pirate. There I said it!
    My wallet is my best buddy and the import price is usually obscenely high. Sometimes I get whatever the local hobby shop can get their mitts on.


    I often get chewed out for not wanting to actively learn the language and go live there. I'm told that I'm not respecting the culture. I honestly do NOT care though. Moving to Japan would be financial and social suicide. Learning Japanese intensively would be a wasted skill in this case. Python is far more interesting. *shot*
    I respect the culture by keeping to myself and not floundering about in a Xenophobic economy that requires you to be alert all the freaking time.

    The music? Heh, well it's catchy. Just like the overpriced dogshit that plays on American radios. So long as you're aware that's it's carries no value beyond the superficial barrier then enjoy it all you like. By all means don't buy it though! I also has some Korean pop as well. Again, lyrics amount to dogshit, but the synth is addictive.

    Honestly, I have never had any Japanese classmates before, the only Japanese people I have seen in real life was at a Japanese Restaurant. I'm sure people are worshiping you without you even knowing it, just because you are Japanese hahaha.


    You moving away from your Japanese culture by moving closer to the American culture, but while this is true, it doesn't change the "blood" you have in you--Japanese "blood" lol.

    I'm not sure if I stated this already or made it blatant enough, but people who go overboard with their obsession for just everything "Japanese" annoys me to no end. Those people in general who aspire to be "everything Japanese" really need to get lives, no offense.

    Yeah lol, but I'm starting to be annoyed by racism
    I draw alot so that doesn't help me lol
    "y can all japanese ppl draw?!... Can u make me into an anime char?" -my friend
    I think about it alot though

    Even though it is in my blood, it can still get tainted
    Pure bloods always die out
    My friend (mentioned above) is Japanese(barely)/French/Italian
    Well, you were being stereotyped, your friend (judging only on what he said) did not intend "racism" or "hatred" towards Japanese people. Many Italian-Americans these days don't realize that their image is a completely stereotyped one, they are just too cocky (not by any means all Italians) to realize that the automatic "cool" vibe they get is just a stereotype like any other, just not a negatively appealing one.

    Also, the fact that you love to draw and are particularly good at drawing anime-like figures could very well be from the fact that you are Japanese, but not from blood, but rather culture and parenting. It's the same reason why many Asian males (this is all about sociology) can play the piano exceptionally, or why many Asians get good grades (it's true). Let's see if you got my point: Parenting and culture are the prime factors that lead to such things.

    We get good grades because @ a young age, we r taught to be obedient, so we dun talk back much (therefore we dun talk much in school to authorites [mostly females]) and expect to do our best

    So yes, it is based on culture, but relies heavily on parenting
    My culture does run through my veins, so theoretically, it's in my blood
    Well I said judging solely on what he said because that's what you based his being "racist" on. And if he's actually being racist then why is he your friend? Yes, claiming or assuming that you can draw anime-like pictures, and really well, is a stereotype, its not being racist. Calling you a Jap would be being racist, or implying hatred of Japanese people is racism.

    Anyways, the parenting aspect comes from the culture, doesn't it? What many people know, but don't accept as complete truth, is that their personalities are simply reflections of the society, for the most part. And there are many different personalities for different experiences and what not that occur within that society (hence why ALL people are different), but still under that society.

    Yes, parenting comes from the culture and is acquired through teaching (that is, learning from others) and of course by experience.

    Oh and, I didn't know that you play the piano quite well, when I said it's quite common for Asian males to play the piano well, I meant a low percentage, yet still high in numbers. For instance, definitely not beyond 50% of all male Asians can play the piano well, but even if its 5% thats 1 in 20.

    Oh and there's no such thing that the "culture runs in your blood". You are taught everything. There was a story of a man of European decent who was born in China and lived there all his life. He returned to his home country in Europe to visit his family, where he was disgusted by some of the foods they ate. They, too, were disgusted with the food he found to be tasty and edible. While he had never eaten the stereotypical "cat", he did try and enjoy and prefer many dishes that were foreign and nasty to his relatives "back home".

    I will try and get the full version to get the full message acros...the point is, you are human (the I with your primitive self) and the society makes you what you are, and you act accordingly to your experiences, way you are raised, etc. The "Me" is your socialized self.
