This movie had a very profound effect on me. I realized, if I were Japanese, I might have had a similar experience to the main character of this film. But no, my pitiful American upbringing caused my young life to be mostly meaningless.

We're taught when we're little that girls are yucky. And we believe it because we aren't bought up to have respect like the Japanese are. This also reflects on the girls, and when this is all they know from males they end up dating the douchebags when they grow up. Kindness is something no American girl appreciates, while in Japan it is a revered quality in all men.

Sure, there's plenty of ronery men in Japan, but they bring it upon themselves. I was denied meaningful connections with females because of the retarded rules of my society.

TL;DR, if I was Japanese I'd have many tales of beautiful love.
