"The government will firmly support the overseas expansion of (Japanese) contents," Kato, the top government spokesman, said.

Spoken like a true beaurocratic robot. How about something along the lines "It's great to see our artists receiving such attention and admiration from people around the world and we hope to further support such talented people in discovering new global audiences.

Junji Ito is great, I don't care about the Oscar. The whole internet knows him for his works.

Junji Ito is a treasure and his Lovecraftian influences stand out even amongst other mangaka.

Hope to see even more recognition of his work.
