weird japanese people

The Hollywood Reporter asked 4 Japanese-American Actresses To Talk About Ghost In The Shell

Okatsuka: Was this directed by a Japanese director?

No. The director, Rupert Sanders, is white and from England.

Okatsuka: Because I’m curious about the directing of certain moments. A Japanese mom, she wouldn’t just let a stranger barge in.

Yoshihara: And the last scene where the mom hugs her daughter at the grave, that was weird to me. Because Japanese people, we don’t hug, especially mom’s generation. Maybe an intense look instead.

Kato-Kiriyama: They’d be crying. And they wouldn’t be looking at each other, they’d be looking down.

Yoshihara: I was like, “No no no no no. We don’t do that.”

Perhaps Sanders and the screenwriters, Jamie Moss, William Wheeler and Ehren Kruger, don’t believe that race is relevant?

Okatsuka: And that experience is more generic because of it. You’re supposed to connect with the fact that she hasn’t seen her mom in a while. If she was a girl who grew up in Japan and ran away, first, she would feel shame, because she’s Japanese. (Laughter.)

Agena: Where was the shame in this movie?! There should have been a lot more shame.

Kato-Kiriyama: No eye contact! You’re just staring at your mom’s toes the whole time!

Yoshihara: The actress who played the mom played a madam in Memoirs of a Geisha, and when I saw that movie I knew she was directed by white directors because she was totally playing an American bitch. In Japan, we don’t act like that. The demeanor and body language was mimicking an American person. Any time a white director directs a Japanese movie, they’re always trying to get us to act American.

People are so desperate.

Like, I’m trying not to giggle at this guy claiming to be half-Japanese and understanding the language but still prefer the dub while claiming the original voices were ‘horrible’.

Persona fandom sure has some people that need to move onto something else… :D

It’s okay to like the English dub voices, but saying things like that will only make me want to ignore you and such. :D

  • Sebastian in ch62: The “price to cross the river" has already been paid.
  • Western fandom: He's referring to river Styx (Greek mythology).
  • Japanese fandom: He's referring to river Sanzu (Japanese folklore).
If my languages were people..
  • Japanese - The long lost, childhood family friend, always close to my heart and will be forever but we don’t really talk anymore. 
  • Spanish - My first love. 
  • Portuguese - My best friend. 
  • Chinese - Met this one by chance, a really interesting and beautiful one. The one I see occasionally but don’t get the chance to hang out with frequently. 
  • French - My acquaintance, starting to grow a better friendship but sometimes Spanish and Portuguese interfere. 
  • English - A family member who I’m stuck with. 
  • Russian & Hindi - The badass and the beautiful, the people I see all the time but never have the courage to approach them because of how intimidating they are.

My about page explains a tiny bit of my story with some of these languages if you’re confused, haha.

フロントメモリー (Front Memory)

This is surely boredom, but
This is surely ennui, but
On the rooftop, I’m breaking down again
A man and woman on the train, a love story
I board the last train coming back and
Record the evening
.
Suddenly, I want to eat ice cream on this midsummer day
Outside is gleaming and burning hot
Sometimes I feel a phobia from you
42 kilos heavy
Using emoji, distorted emotions
I record the evening
.
heybaby,yobaby,heybaby
Like always, I couldn’t go forward earlier
In this kind of summer again
I put on my tight shoes
Three Point
You can’t decide, right?
.
Today, I have no motivation
I hold my lucky item
Hip-Hopping, pretending I live with a sense of duty
Conversation Comprehension
I mail you, pretending I’m out when I’m all by myself
“iloveyou”    When did I learn that in English?
.
I can’t do my best, I can’t do my best
Yo, I can’t live like this
I,m bloodygirling,   Leading part is boring
Say Yeah!
.
Suddenly, I want to eat ice cream on this midsummer day
Outside is gleaming and burning hot
The electric fan is whirring in my face,
I lean in and make frog sounds
The 3 o'clock feeling lays heavily
Looking out the window, I doze
I don’t understand myself
.
heybaby,yobaby,heybaby
Like always, I couldn’t go forward earlier
In this kind of summer again,
I squeeze on my shoes
Three Point
You can’t decide, right?
And summer comes again
Without my recorded scenery playing back, the New Beat morning is very…
Summer and SUMMERtime
Leaving the August train station,
I shout and cry into the rice patties 
.
Simply,
I wonder if I can do my best today
This is a continuation of yesterday
On the rooftop, I’m breaking down again
A man and woman on a train, a love story
I board the last train coming back and
Record the evening
.
I can’t do my best, I can’t do my best
Yo, I can’t go on like this
I,mbloodygirling, Lead role is boring
Say Yeah!
I can’t do my best, I can’t do my best
Yo, I can’t go on like this
I,mbloodygirling, So bloody happy 
Yeah!
.
Like last summer again
Last summer again
And summer comes again
Without my recorded scenery playing back, the New Beat morning is very…
Summer and SUMMERtime
Leaving the August train station,
I shout and cry into the rice patties
Comeonbaby yeah!
.

I’ve found a boy who’s so genuinely happy and he likes me but I feel like I don’t deserve a good and happy relationship.

Funny Japanese Heavy Metal

anonymous asked:

You got me on boku no hero academia, after reblogging some pics of dad might and i thought it was cute the parental relationship between the skeleton funny drawn man and the green protag, then i got more info and i fell in love with everything about dad might(dont talk to me or my 326 children again) and then i watched the series. Thank you so much, this is one of the most fiewhf things ever

Dad Might is the best Might~!!!!

I’m really glad you enjoyed bnha so much! It’s basically been all I could think about these past few days XD And if I have enough motivation tonight, I might just update (or at least start writing) the next chapter of All Right. Some cute Dad Might headcanons as a thank you for talking to me:

- aro!ace!Dad Might had long ago given up on the possibility of having a family, even though it’s something he’s craved since he was young. And then he meets Izuku, with his sharp mind and his heart of gold and his smile of sunshine, and his heart breaks. Because Izuku is EVERYTHING he’d never dared to hope for in a son, and All Might is shocked at how badly he craves that parental relationship with his young student. He has to constantly remind himself not to overstep his boundaries.

- In another world, where All for One didn’t exist and All Might didn’t lose his stomach, he would still choose Izuku as his successor. But without his injuries draining away all his life energy, the last dregs of One For All last in All Might for several years. Long enough that after Izuku graduates UA, they can fight together as hero and sidekick for a short time, long enough for Izuku to learn the ropes and make a name for himself before his mentor has to leave his side

- The media assumes Izuku is All Might’s son and neither of them denies it. And it’s totally just because that’s the most convenient excuse for why their quirks are so similar. Lol there’s no way it’s because they both love the idea of being parent and child. Hahaha. Right.

- Izuku totally gives All Might a “World’s #1 Dad” shirt for father’s day. All Might wears it to class the very next day. Izuku dies of embarrassment. All his classmates are looking at him meaningfully. Everyone knows he’s All Might’s son.

- After the chapter 95 hug, Izuku sometimes likes to go up and hug All Might if either of them are feeling down. Which would be weird for most Japanese people. But people give them some slack because All Might lived in America for a long time, and Izuku probably grew up there (or so everyone assumes) and everyone knows how affectionate Americans are.
