I watched an anime film yesterday, Spirited Away. I got it at a very low price at the DVD sale in Tescos. Anime films are getting pretty popular here in the west. As I have commented on this blog before, a lot of western young people are exposed to a lot of Japanese culture (including removing shoes) through media.
I love Japanese culture, but I prefer not to make this too obvious. Lots of other people love Japanese culture, so being a big fan of Japanese things is hardly original. Loving Japan is one of the characteristics of the liberal, middle class whites satirised in the blog Stuff White People Like.
