I've said it once and I'll say it again… many aspects of Japanese culture are verrrrrry… kookie.
For example, this new trend for lengthy videos of pretty girls staring at the camera.
Apparently the idea is to help socially anxious guys get used to making eye contact with pretty girls. Personally, I'm not so sure that the best treatment for this affliction is more staring at the computer screen, but who am I to say? I'm not an expert in prettygirlnoneyecontactitis. Though I am pretty sure I've had conjunctivitis at least once in my life.
