Here's my favorite Wapanese story. I like metal and hard rock, and some of the bands I listen to happen to be Japanese. My favorite band is a Japanese metal band called X. I couldn't care less about how they're Japanese, they could be Kenyan or Icelandic or Portuguese for all I care, I just really, really like the music.
So, once upon a time several years ago, I found another X fan in real life and started talking to her. Like all Wapanese, she thought she was very open-minded and liked to constantly announce that to everyone. She decided she wanted to expand her musical horizons, so she asked me for band recommendations. X is heavily inspired by KISS (another band I particularly like), so knowing she's an X fan, I asked if she'd listened to KISS yet. Her reply went something like this:
"EWWWWW NO, PAUL STANLEY HAS CHEST HAIR!"
Very open-minded, like I said. To this day I'm not sure what that has to do with anything, as personally, I wasn't aware that Paul's chest hair was audible on the albums.
Yo, anti_japanphile. I'm glad you exist and sorry to see you don't have more members and that no one's posted in so long.
