Only in Japan...

Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

But does JAXA have the ability to go up in space to recover an EVA yet?

Well, at least it's a different cutout, otherwise it would be weird.

Here's how they taught U.S. history in Japan in the 1860s:

A light novel, and translated of course - wouldn't that be enough to convince Barons of Hell Hollywood to make its live movie adaptation, with full CGI power unleashed?

BTW someone in the comments decrypted the title of the book as "A Child's Illustrated Book of All Countries"...

Besides. My city was founded by a dragon slayer. In the 80's a book for kids was issued, where the said dragon was speaking human speech, invented a car propelled by salty water and took an expedition to save the realm from the invasion of another state - the plan of the assualt was based on breeding giant flying frogs. All this deep in the 7th century. The book had two sequels; the first one featured a caravan of dinosaurs and the second one a flying saucer travelling in time.

Only in Japan? The city of CRACK, hell yeah. :tongue:

Oh my, that's depressing. I wonder why the government finally decided to find out how many hikikomori there are... perhaps the abysmal birth ate?

Frankly, tentacles are becoming so stereotypical that they seem mild (despite being more explicit) compared to some of the fetishes Japanese artists cater to.

One that still makes me go WTF? is using an electrical toothbrush to brush a girl's teeth to somehow turn her on. :crazytwirl:

All-new World of Thighs Photography exhibition opens in Tokyo’s Harajuku neighborhood this month.

The exhibition’s run will straddle the abdication of Japan’s Emperor Akihito and the ascension of Crown Prince Naruhito, and as such will be the final World of Thighs event of the Heisei imperial period, as well as the first of the upcoming Reiwa era, and will include newly taken ‘Reiwa thigh photos.'

Bad behavior, but probably not as bad as carving one's name on an Egyptian wall relief.
