I've loved tatami flooring since day one and even years later, I will always make sure my home has it.

Why do people want to whiten their skin?!

In Japan, and much of Asia, if you have tanned skin this is traditionally associated with working under the sun outside in the fields and therefore being financially poor. Conversely, pale skin is associated with comparative wealth and success. There are other factors, but these are the foundations of the culture.

Of course the opposite applies in the UK, where a tan is traditionally associated with the wealth necessary to be able to holiday in hot, sunny countries (although these days a moderate tan is mostly perceived as a sign of "healthiness").

Yet again, Japan seemlessly combines the traditional and futuristic.

Just because the last movie wasn't so well received (though I liked it), that doesn't mean the next movie can't be good. Especially after what will be at least a six year break.

You really don't want to find out what else happens to these characters after all this time? Even the mediocre episodes of the series were better than 90% of tv shows out there.
