They probably didn't watch enough anime to learn how to do it properly. Watching anime is the only way to be truly japanese. Also randomly throwing a japanese word in mid sentence baka.

 

The single like I've given here does not accurately portray just how much I love this particular grouping of words at this point in time. :P

Western includes everything from old continent?

Nya! You forgot to add that you have to be an anime character to become a true japanese.

True story but off-topic: I live in the US near a military air base that specializes in testing new aircraft and training test pilots. There's a lot of pilots from foreign militaries there too, because they attend our test pilot school. Anyways, my wife and I are at a local sushi restaurant, which are by and large run by Korean or Chinese people here in the US. Two helicopter pilots from the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force sit down later and order their sushi. Now, I don't speak Japanese but I can pick up on a few words and key in on peoples' vocal inflection, enough to know when someone is making fun of someone else in a foreign language. Those Japanese pilots were talking mad shit about those Korean sushi chefs and their sushi making skills in their own restaurant, yo. LOL

 

Even though I'm nearly 100% certain I don't live near you, I also live near a military air base that also specializes in testing new technology as we also have a massive military research facility near by (I've got a cronie that works in research). I've had damn near the same experience. I about cracked up listening to them.

You can't become an anime character unless you give up an addition D.

How can someone be 100% western when playstation is from east. Although some may not have a playstation they still ARE on THIS website which leans more onto the east side so technically its impossible to be 100% on west side while using this site  :D

Brilliant.

 

But, unfortunately, 100% western also covers >90%, I would guess =D

Taking into account what I do with my time and the media I spend it on I'd say its a mix of 25% Hispanic, 40% Western and 35% Japanese.

I don't have a preference. I just watch/play what appeals to me. So I think 50/50.

If we are talking about music and movies, it would be western, (Music: European: 70% - American: 30%, Movies: American 100%)

Video games, by other hand are mainly Japanese, I would say 70%

Interesting poll. I am surprised its so western orientated cause like 80% of this site seems to be about Japanese media (let alone profile pics and signatures)

 

I voted 100% western cause Japanese stuff doesn't appeal to me at all

I don't think so there's more countries in asia than Japan and there's other significant countries in this world other than just english speaking ones.

 

You said media so we're not just talking games, this includes stuff like film, music and books.

 

South Korea? K-pop > J-pop and it's widely known that Korea makes a lot of quality movies.

About 50 50 for me. Most of the TV shows I am into are western but most of the games I like are Japanese.

I'm actually surprised it's still relatively tied, I expected western to win easily.

It's about 50 - 50 for me.

I watch a lot of anime when I am at home, but watch a lot of western TV shows at work (benefits of working at a call center with down time :D)
 

When it comes to games I play a lot of both. I just enjoy both sides of them equally. If the game is fun and has fun trophies then I'm sold!

I would have to say 80% Western and 20% Japanese. I don't play a lot of Japanese games and I'm very picky about the anime I watch because I usually watch cyberpunk or horror-themed stuff. For the most part, I find the stylized look of anime to be unappealing.

I love The Walking Dead, Batman, Spider-Man, American Movies, and american food.

I love JRPGs, Anime, & manga, so... 60 American, 40 Japanese.

I said 80 West/20 East.

 

I watch almost no foreign (to me) movies.  The only non-English music I listen to is the occasional anime opener.  I love The Walking Dead, Family Guy, The Simpsons (the older episodes).  I used to be pretty heavily into anime in my younger years, but I haven't done much there in a while.  Think I might look into Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood though, I liked the original TV series a lot.

 

Games are largely Western... with the occasional Final Fantasy, Ni no Kuni, The Evil Within and Resident Evil thrown into the mix.

I enjoy a lot of western stuff like TV shows, movies and games. There are times where I watch anime only or playing japanese games only and than there is a western thing only time for me. So it's 50-50 for me.

Even though I don't watch anime, movies or read something japanese, a variety of my favorites games and franchises are japanes (Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil and Devil May Cry). I still know there's so much I can dive into all the incredible media Japan has to offer, that's why I'm afraid of it.
