im curious as to why so many people like japanese culture better than... others. like, what's wrong with, say, austrian culture or finnish culture or kuwaiti culture?
i'd really like to hear some legitimate answers that aren't based on "oh i love me some animes yum yum" or "azns r so kawaii" or even "sushi is delicious." because really, it's easy to like an aspect of a culture, but i think people maybe take it too far a lot of the time? i like potatoes, river dance and irish accents, but that doesn't mean i elevate the irish above everyone else.
and yes im aware of the "why do you like japan" thread or whatever, but im looking for something deeper than the "i like anime video games and androgynous boys" posts that permeate that topic.
