Listening to: Shiritsu Ebisu Chugakko (私立恵比寿中学): Kindan no Karuma (禁断のカルマ)

I have much trouble with the opening episode of this clip.
This is how Westerners are often portrayed in Japan; it perpetuates a stupid stereotype.
What do you think? Should I remove it? Why, or why not?

Kjeld Duits About the Photographer

Inspired by the stunningly creative street fashion that exploded on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka in the late 1990’s, photo-journalist Kjeld Duits launched JAPANESE STREETS in 2002. This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion.

@KD: I can’t see the video because I live in Narnia (- -) I had to look for it somewhere else and I didn’t like it (the opening).

@Maria: I had no idea you lived in Narnia! I have to come and visit. ^_- So, it’s not only me who dislikes this stereotyping. What do you think? Should I remove it? Or keep it to make people aware of the problem?

I love her make up ! :) Her pink eyeliner really accentuates the look.

@Roro: Yes, it does, doesn’t it. I like that Ayane made it a real broad line.

@Bananagirl: Ayane made it herself by sewing three bears to a random cap. Imagination, inventiveness and initiative is what defines Japanese street fashion. ^^

@KD: The song is good and I think it’s better to make everyone aware of this… is it me or those shoes are trending?

María
May 18, 2013 (1649 days ago)

@Maria: Thanks. I’ll keep it up then. I don’t think the shoes are trending yet, but they may. ^^

@KD: I guess watching three different persons using them in a week is not a trend yet ^^U Those shoes remind me of a nail polish color that is trending here…

María

@María: Haha, yes, I’d still call it a coincidence. ^_-
