Hello to YOU! Our newest member from the land of Japan.

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I was thinking about this earlier and then decided, "You know what? The next time a Japanese person joins, that's what I'll ask them." But I don't know when the next Japanese person might join and I was a little worried I might forget my question, so I figured I'd be pro-active!

Now You, whoever you are, already have a thread in the new members sections to meet people, or if you're feeling brave enough you can still start your own and let some one a little more tentative about jumping in have use of this thread.

Anyways, my question is, Do you know of a specific point or time where Japan started to not be fixated on Giants, like Godzilla, Ultraman, Mazinga and the Shogun Warriors and moved more towards Tiny, like Pokemon and those giga-pets things?
Maybe it's not even a point in time when it happened but a psychological reason it did?

I've started to build a theory but I'd like to know what some one from the actual place thought on the subject.

In any event, welcome aboard the Chuck Palahniuk website, I hope you enjoy the experience.

edit: I feel like shit now because the whole time I was pondering this stuff I forgot about the whole earthquake thing and how you guys are still going through a lot of shit and pain.
I do hope you and your family are all safe and that things are starting to get back to normal by the time you join.
