i never heard of suicide forest personally.

i dont know much about sumo aside from what i learned there. i never watched a sumo match live although its suppose to be awesome experience. the gossip there about the sumo wrestlers is hilarious.

well Japan is a homogenous country, so I can kind of understand the xenophobic attitudes. From what I've hear it's not racist, they pretty much treat all foreigners as second class..is this true? Even in American you have xenophobia and that is in a heterogeneous country. I've been to other countries and the people seem to be more accepting of foreigners. Differs from place to place I guess. Or how much that particular country has been exposed to outsiders. I've been to other places where I would get stared at, but it never felt threatening..it was more curiosity. Unlike some places here in the States where I get looked at and I feel negative vibes. In Korea I was at the Airport and there was a couple. The girl seemed curious to me, but her husband/boyfriend told her let's go here..to go away from me. I took no offense to it. I don't bother strangers myself. I just find these things intriguing. I would love to visit Japan, but I would not like to feel like an outcast.

i'm not much of a manga reader, but i randomly stumbled on this the other day... "angel densetsu." probably the most hilarious graphic novel i've ever read from any country or author.

it's all readable online, starting here:
http://www.mangareader.net/178-11606...chapter-1.html

btw, it reads right-to-left, not the other way around.

Just start reading, but I checked the art of the first and last episode, and damn that is quite an art evolution.

Edit: Wait a minute, is this from the same guy who writes Claymore!?

Leave the 14 year old girls wearing uniform alone, you pedophile. We all know that's your only reason for going there.
