Well, it depends what you class as weird. There are many other weird shenanigans in other countries but Asia has more than its fair share of them, I go along with that.

American and Japan are like Ying and Yang, It may be a simplistic way of looking at it but I strongly suspect the two cultures are both attracted to and repulsed by that "Oppisitness" of the other.

As to weirdos...you ever been to a British soccer match?

I think this is a way of explaining yourself, rather than a simple sense of curiosity that exists in normal people.


The eternal Saint is calling, through the ages she has told. The ages have not listened; the will of faith has grown old…

For forever she will wander, for forever she withholds; the Demon King is on his way, you’d best not be learned untold…

Foreign weirdoes as in Wapanese (Western kids over-admiring Japan)?

There may be some similarities found between the two.
America attracting so many people? bcuz IMO people think that AMerica is some sort of... amazing place with freedom and all kinds of people so people are all like "WOW! Look at that! *points to certain thing*"

If someone from America came to Japan as a foreign exchange student, ya think they would be crowded with attention like in America? probably. It would be the same when someone from Japan came to America. Heck, it's just how people act around the world. (That's my opinion)

No. I'm content with my way.

That's really what matters isn't it? If you spend your whole life trying to please others by being something your not, what are you?.
