    and of course, there's always the original "Live Action Anime Girl" -- Apollo Smile!

    I can't find any of her official video's online (other than when she was hosting the Sci Fi Channel's anime festival years ago (and was promoting her role as Ulala in Space Chanel 5 game) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SS3mD...eature=related

    but here's one of her songs

    "do what bert says" - Flamestar (c/o Ouzo Man)

    I'm struggling for a Lynn Minmay joke. There was this girl back in the early 90s that used to go to all the cons performing as her. She was actually very good.

    Yeah, no.

    I will never, ever understand the Japanese. I love classic Japanese cinema. Beyond that, I find their culture completely incomprehensible.

    So do I, but I often find incomprehensible things enjoyable. I'm way too old for J-Pop fandom, but this is kind of cute. At least it shows some creativity and genuine self-expression, unlike most pop music today.

    I was quite a bit into shibuya-kei music, ten years ago. I guess that scene has faded away. Pizzicato Five, Fantastic Plastic Machine, Cornelius, Takako Minekawa... great stuff.

    I think there's a bit of observer bias going on with Japan. I doubt they got any more or less cultural peculiarities than any other people, it's just that people pay more notice.

    She is adorable. But waffle-face up in the corner is freaking me out. I suspect she may be trying to brainwash people into becoming her adorably homicidal minions--probably dressed like schoolgirls or something. Good thing I don't know Japanese.
