The Buddhist Philosophy of Rinne no Lagrange

One show I've been enjoying this season has been Rinne no Lagrange, a fun-fun moe mecha anime with some yuri undertones which features a girl named Madoka (no, not that Madoka) who's asked to pilot a mech in order to save the Earth from bromance aliens. Always genki (happy, positive, energetic), she's essentially the opposite of the whiny, emo Amuro Ray from the classic Gundam series. Aside from the silly English add-on ("Flower declaration of your heart"), the title of the series was interesting to me, and I found myself wondering what it might mean. The word rinne (pronounced "reen-neh" and known by the name samsara in English) is an advanced concept found in Buddhism, Hinduism and other religions, describing the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth that people go through constantly (e.g. "you're born, you live, you go on some diets, you die"). Japanese people don't accept the rebirth/reincarnation aspects of Buddhism, however, and mainly use the word rinne to describe situations that will repeat forever, e.g. a daughter who doesn't show respect to her parents will find herself in the same situation when she has disrespectful children of her own, etc.


Who's putting Buddhist philosophy in our anime?

I Love Japanese Voices

The Japanese are masters of influencing emotions using voice, and I'm often amazed at the eerie beauty of the voices that enter my ear here. If you watch anime in Japanese, of course, you know how talented the Japanese seiyu are, and their ability to bring to life a character that would otherwise be (literally) two-dimensional and inert is one of the major attractions of the genre. But the strangely compelling beauty of Japanese voices isn't limited to anime: you can find females trained to speak in a uniquely pleasing way in various professions, too, such as female bus guides, who entertain passengers on long sightseeing trips; ground hostesses, those airport employees who call out your flight number in the most delightful sing-song tones; and Japan's legendary elevator girls, the uniformed women who stand in the elevator and announce each floor for you, although they've almost completely disappeared by now. I'll never forget the time I called NTT, Japan's sprawling telephone and Internet provider, to get help with some computer hardware. The voice on the other end belonged to an extremely kawaii-sounding female NTT employee, and bastard that I am, I actually expected her to take down my information and then transfer me to some male technician who would tell me how to fix my problem. I was quite surprised when the cute voice quickly proceeded to help me debug my router and fix the TCP/IP problem I'd been having, solving it in no time. I had to hang my head in shame for a while after that.


The voice of Kanna from AnoNatsu is a big part of her charm.
(Same voice actress as Madoka from Lagrange as it would happen.)

March the Season of Graduation and Tears

March is graduation season in Japan, a time for making tearful farewells to your classmates as you wait through a long-winded speech from the principal to finally receive your diploma. Compulsory education only goes through the end of junior high school in Japan -- high school is optional, though 99% of students attend -- which creates an interesting situation of everyone having two sets of friends: one group from elementary and junior high, who are all from the same area; and another group from high school, who tend to be closer in academic level to each other but may live in different cities. There are many interesting Japanese customs related to graduation, from groups of friends making a last visit to Tokyo Disneyland together to girls asking boys they like for their daini botan or the 2nd button from their school uniform, as a keepsake. The second button is closest to the heart, and every male student only has one to give, so if a girl is lucky enough to receive it she'll have a precious memory of her school days. Today my daughter graduated from junior high school, with lots of tears and hugs and promises to be friends forever.


March is the season of graduation and farewell.

How to get Japanese Citizenship

Last time I talked about Donald Keene, the Japanese scholar and translator who came to Japan and took Japanese citizenship, and I thought I'd expand on that a bit. It's quite easy for residents of Japan to become naturalized citizens if they desire it, with the basic rules being five years of consecutive residence in Japan, a history of good behavior, and basic Japanese language skills. In the past anyone wanting Japanese citizenship was required to legally take a Japanese name in officially-designated kanji characters. While I'm all in favor of writing Western names in kanji characters, this requirement led to strained relations with Japan's large Korean minority, who maintained South or North Korean nationality in part because they were insulted by the idea of taking a Japanese name. While most countries including the U.S. have no issue with allowing dual citizenship, Japan officially requires that anyone desiring to be naturalized renounce citizenship in any other country; however this appears to be a classic case of tatemae (a facade, a social rule that's ignored by everyone in practice), and the requirement is not enforced in practice. Incidentally, I live in Japan on a permanent residence visa (eijuken), not bothering to get Japanese citizenship because, as my wife points out, I'm more interesting as an American than a Japanese who's is bad at kanji. (If you have more questions about possibly living in Japan, there's a handbook for that.)


It's quite easy to get Japanese citizenship.

White Day 2012...and Black Day?

Today is White Day, an event created to serve as a "return gift day" when men in Japan will give something to the girlfriends, wives, daughters or female co-workers who gave them chocolate on Valentine's Day. While it's obviously an example of a fake day created so that shops can sell stuff, it's also a good example of Japan's highly evolved custom of gift giving, which requires that a gift be reciprocated with a return gift (o-kaeshi) equivalent to half the value of the first item. While Valentine's Day is generally about chocolate, there are more options for White Day, including cookies, marshmallows, or the ever-popular flowers that actually contain panties. While Japanese-style Valentine's Day and White Day are spreading across Asia, South Korea has a unique event for single men, held on April 14. It's called Black Day, and single men who haven't managed to find girlfriends by that date will gather together wearing black clothes, eat a black Korean noodle dish called jajangmyeon, washed down with black coffee.


Happy White Day, everyone.

I Still Don't Know the Name of the Alien We Saw On That Day

It's funny the way a person's perceptions of a place can be influenced by stereotypes. For example, there are many famous images of Japan, from ninja to geisha to the idea that Japanese live in paper houses, which we hopefully realize are not totally accurate today. (Actually, the paper houses part isn't completely wrong, as my house has many shoji paper doors that separate rooms.) I once had an interesting conversation with a man from Iran -- interesting in part because were were speaking Japanese, as he didn't know English, and we were both naked in a public bath at the time -- who had somehow come to believe that Hollywood action films were an accurate representation of life in America. I did my best to correct this mistaken views, and wondered what erroneous beliefs about his country I might be holding. In a recent episode of the popular anime Ano Natsu de Matteru, aka Waiting in the Summer, glasses-wearing red-headed alien Mizuho Kazami Ichika Takatsuki confesses that she is in fact not from Earth. But she's very nervous about giving away her secret. "What if the 'Men in Black' find out? Would they try to do an alien autopsy on me?" It made me smile.


AnoNatsu is an anime about love, summer and aliens.
