I've been completely absorbed in Japanese art/history/culture for the past few months since I'm attending Japanese-related events. As much as I've gotten sick of Japanese stuff and wanted to move on to learning about other cultures, it's still just as visually and creatively stimulating as always and there's constantly something new and interesting to look up. I'm doing this in the first place so I know enough about Japanese culture to work from it to cater to the weaboos of anime conventions. ...Although, I could just take the easy way out and draw stupid fanart. But I'm a stubborn ass an will try to appeal to them without borderline coypright infringement (no, instead I'll be using cultural appropriation, oho) . It's still probably pointless, though. Anime fans for the most part only care about what directly relates to them. Their animes. And whatever bits of Japanese culture are featured/"advertised" in the saccharine cartoons. They don't ever seem to dig deeper than the marketable garbage that occupies their miniscule attention spans. For fucks sake-- these people can't even take the time to google what real kimonos look like before they half-ass stitch up a bathrobe made of Chinese-styled brocaded satinFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF...oh, look at that wall of text.
