Once I wrote a little essay asking why so many young Chinese people wanted to learn Japanese and watch anamei, when I thought if a country does bad stuff to another country and does not say they are sorry, outrage would erupt.
I posted the essay up on the Web and what do I get? Tons of E-mail saying "ww2 happened a long time ago, the japanese said they were sorry!" and "why do you care if chinese people want to watch anime?" (It just confused me because I thought that the Chinese were still angry about what happened, and some were acting like hypocrites.)
