Which Gaijin country do the Japanese hate the least?
>>
Probably China.
>>
Germany, I guess.
>>
I'd imagine Germany.
>>
>>100346093
Retard.
>>
Krauts, Definitely Krauts.
>>
One in Europe or Australia
>>
anything from europe
>>
You should probably ask /int/.
>>
Germany.
>>
In order of love I'd say america, germany, britain. Only reason I put america ahead of germany is because I remember seeing a popularity poll of various countries and their opinion on america, and the country who thought the best of america was japan. They liked america more than it liked itself.
>>
They love Italy. When I visited Italy a lot of signs and stores had Italian, English and Japanese written on them.
>>
France or Germany, probably.
>>
>>100346172

That was probably during the tsunami relief.

It's probably settled back in its average, whatever that may be.
>>
German here. USA. they love USA.
>>
>>100346115
>australia
Isn't the relationship with Australia shaky as fuck because of whaling in Australian waters or some shitt?
>>
The US have saved them from 50 years of communism. English is the best spoken foreign language in Japan as well as anywhere else in the world. American culture influenced Japan more than any other since WW2.

Now figure out yourselves who they like most. And by like I mean their girls getting wet for, not some crusty old men being bitter about or not.
>>
>>100346172

Why is Japan the only county that doesn't completely hate our guts?
>>
Are Asian countries included as Gaijin countries?
>>
>>100346172
Well the US did actually help rebuild Japan after ww2 even though the US were the ones who dropped the bombs.
>>
Some Nordic country or Finland i guess.

Nobody hates them.
>>
>>100346358

>>
It's definitely America. Just look at anime. It's more reverse weeaboo than /a/ is weeaboo.
>>
>>100346063
France or Germany. There's actually a term for the disillusionment that the Japanese feel upon coming to France and realizing its not their dreamland, its a really shitty place to live, "Paris Syndrome".
>>
>>100346358
I wouldn't conflate Japan having the highest foreign regard of the United States with Japan loving the United States.

If on average people give you 2 points out of 10, and one dude gives you 3. You don't ask yourself why that dude who gave you 3 points wants to suck your cock.
>>
>>100346460
>Didn't read about the clusterfuck of occupation of japan.

Japs are forced to love murrikan dick.
>>
I'd say the US or the UK. I hear British culture is surprisingly popular there.
>>
Probably Germany.

Their relationship with America is more of a Stockholm syndrome type.
>>
>>100346246
I really didn't think that the Japanese cared for Americans at all. At the very least, Okinawans hate Americans because our military is obnoxious as fuck, and there are many heavily publicized cases of solders raping Japanese civilians.

This. They freaking love (or think they love) Germany. But I'm surprised no one has mentioned Italy yet, they like Italy too.

By the way how is this anime related?

America.

Only because of Hollywood and famous actors a from there though.

They're also annoyed because of all the Ospreys and military base stuff, though really it's protecting them from Best Korea and China, should they throw the first stone.

Also the Murricans brought in fast food, it caught on, and now the Okinawans don't live as long as they used to.
>>
Must be New Zealand
nobody hates New Zealand

there was a chart, around 50% was US and the other 50 were all other countries, with I think Mexico in 2nd place.

Actually it was from before the tsunami n all that. I think it was from like 2009 or something. It may have changed since then, but shit I don't know.

>>
>>100346507
Er, actually, that's more caused by the fact people in Paris are complete and utter asshats.

I'm not sure if you've ever been there, but going to Paris was a dawning point of realization that some stereotypes of the French -are- true. I've never been in such a hostile and stuck-up city before in my life. Like imagine going to a restaurant and ordering a meal, and when the waiter returns with your change he literally throws it down on the table.

It's a pretty city but, Christ, the people there awful. By contrast London looks like it was cobbled together by someone whose idea of architecture was formulated by intense study of the Winchester mansion, while the people there are friendly and helpful as fuck.
>>
This thread is pointless as Japanese dont even know a thing about foreign countries, so they hate things made up in their head.
Have you never noticed that they draw Americans as blonde and blue-eyed in their animes? When I was in the US (Seattle) less than 5% of the population had these features.

Actually, most people on 4chan hate Sweden and Swedes.

That said, Japs do love Finland for some reason. I suppose they can relate to Finland, lives in the shadow of a large empire, survives on electronics exports and has top tier education.
>>
>>100346419

I don't think that's it. I think it's because Japan kind of lives in this cultural bubble compared to rest of the world. While they do have had a lot of cultural influence from the west (America being the most obvious) they still just kind of shut themselves out from the what the rest of the world thinks. What I'm trying say is before the war on terror the international opinion of the US was pretty damn high. But after shit like Guantanamo Bay, the Invasion of Iraq, and the general foreign policy of fuck everyone who's not us the world has come to despise us. Japan on the other hand holds a relatively Pre-War on Terror view of America because of their isolation.

That's cause they have to make them look different from the Japanese characters. See, everyone having black hair would be boring (though it's accurate), so some people will have different shades of brown (or red, blue, etc). How can they represent a foreigner, then? S/he'll have to be blonde, because THAT can never be explained away as natural Japanese hair color.

You haven't been paying attention to politics in Italy recently have you? A joke I've heard is that Berlusconi is Italian for 'asshole'.

Japan also has something stupid like a 99% conviction rate. Even if you didn't do it , you still did it. They also have tactics of leaving you alone in a room for days on end until you confess just so they'll let you out of the room.

Certain companies over there have similar rooms for employees they don't want to fire but want to get rid of, they'll assign them to an empty room for weeks on end until the person gets bored and quits.

http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/9452014/pitcher-tomohiro-anraku-future-japanese-baseball-espn-magazine

"The only glimmer of his former light comes in the universal language of two admiring teenage girls, their hair and makeup immaculate, trying to get his attention through the fence. They know what he used to be and might still become, but the grim-faced object of their affection never looks their way. Entering the ninth inning, Saibi is losing 5-3. The Kyoto-Gaidai West players are shouting joyously in their dugout, and Anraku looks far from the tallest boy on the field."

"Then his manager, Joko, makes some vague, almost invisible gesture, and Anraku releases his customary acceptance of command -- a chest-thumping shout that starts deep in his gut -- bowing to his manager before he sprints to the mound.

And while this might sound like mythmaking, like some hinterland baseball legend that's told by scouts to their children to explain why they are never home, this is a true account of what happens next:

The entire field goes silent. Not quiet. Quiet is not a strong enough word to describe this instant temple. It goes dead silent. What had been a consistent, heavy chatter just stops. Anraku's teammates, the opposing players in their dugout, the umpires, the mothers and fathers and tea-brewing booster club up on the hill -- nobody says a word. Nobody claps or chants or boos. An opposing player noiselessly pulls out a radar gun, but nobody else moves. Even the two girls, gripped tight against the rightfield fence, stop their lovesick parade."

Probably. But only the stars. That article is a fantastic read, very well written.

Not sure if serious… Murrica has tried to host presentations or museum exhibits of what happened at the A-bomb ground zeroes in the past, and those got cancelled because the vets protested en masse. As for Dresden, you might get a passing mention in the Brits' textbooks about incendiaries reducing the city to ashes, but you never hear about what it actually did to the people living in it. If it wasn't for Kurt Vonnegut, we probably still wouldn't know.

Border disputes are geopolitical posturing. They express "hate" for each other because it's the only politically tenable animosity to express. Their actual hatred, for the foreigners, is hidden because nobody wants to start a race war.

China and Japan and Korea have a lot of beef with each other but it is sibling rivalry. If you take it too seriously then you are hopelessly naive and brainwashed by the conflict loving media.

Remember Japan invaded C/K because it needed their resources to throw off the global western empires, not because it "hates" C/K.

Look mate, that may have been true back then. But the hatred now is a hell of a lot more worse than "sibling rivalry". The hate makes absolutely no sense, it's insane and disturbing and isn't going anywhere for a while yet. And it defies logic, it oversteps the usual geopolitical posturing. What you've said may have been the basis, but it has long since evolved from that.

The Islands were uncontested territory of Japan's until the 1970s, when it was discovered that there's signs of oil there.

I agree in part with what you're saying though, that China is stirring up this shit over expanding its territory in the East China sea and the Senkaku islands probably in part to distract the citizens from the boiling domestic problems they have.

Calling that a 'fucking joke' though when it's literally China expanding its borders through threat of force is bizarre to me.

Korea: Japan repeatedly invaded them, thousands of historical feud, annexed in world war 2 which is relatively recent
China: Repeating fights in past 200 years, got destroyed by Japanese in world war 2
Rest of Asia: same

While China did lead and influence Asia the most in past, you can note that japs were quick to adapt and embrace the gaijin tech and gave them massive advantage early on which like any sensibl country would do, would take advantage of it and get some money out of surrounding countries
You need to applaud their ability to accept as most Asian countries were and are conservative and xenophobic

Also this mentality does not exclude the Japanese. Asians tend to hold on to the past and shit. Doesn't help that they didn't go with German way of apologizing to everything that exist on earth and instead denied it making it worse

You think far too ideally. You don't while out thousands o years of hate and relatively recent conflicts just because it it will benefit their "race". If anything Asians will wide with one that offers more advantage or in case of eastern asia, China and Korea, non-japs

China is not interested in Japan nor does it see Japan as an adversary. Its goal is to replace America / Western civilization.

Sure, and that's why PACs and Ospreys and US bases are hanging out on Japanese Hawaii.

>Not understanding that Orwell quote

The entire point of that quote was that Engsoc was never at war with Eastasia, until the three super-states decided to mix things up a bit and Engsoc retroactively changed all their history to make that claim.

What you need to understand is that the people in power in China aren't going to skip over Japan and Korea because hey, they look like us. Because historically that's just not true, it's like you're ignoring WWII entirely.

China -is- however interested in stirring up external conflict because they're domestic problems are going to tear the country apart from within. If you're going to quote Orwell you should appreciate that the -entire- fucking point of the huge ongoing war was to distract the population from the grievous problems they had at home.

>Asians tend to hold on to the past
Nationalists issues bring up past historical drudges are always funny for me. I don't normally blog because it's irrelevant, but these sanctimonious nationalists... I'll be brief.
See my country is a pretty shitty one that few care for. France and Japan raped our economy so bad it led to the greatest famine in 1945 with millions dead (think mothers eating their children). The US left us with presents like My Lai and Agent Orange (please DON'T Google Image that). China tried to purge our culture for a thousand years (try topping that) by forcing our women to marry their men (what's Nanking? Pfft) and banning our language, and we fought them off for the next millennia. The Mongol Empire invaded us thrice. Pol Pot massacred our civilians (with the help of the US and China, e.g. Ba Chuc)... Guess how many apologized to us.

At some point we knew we'd have to hate the whole world if we didn't move on. My current teacher is a fat American who loves eating xôi, and we love our fat Americans.

They "helped" Korea in much the same way America "helped" africans by buying them so that their distant descendants might one day be able to live in a country not in africa.

Korea might be better off as a result of the results of the results of what Japan did, but the Japanese annexation of Korea was in no way for Korea's benefit. Koreans certainly don't look kindly upon the forced labor, widespread rape, pillaging cultural whitewashing and ethnic cleansing that happened during the occupation.

Younger generations might not be as angry, but any Koreans over 50 literally grew up in the miserable poverty directly caused by japan and will illuminate their feelings on the matter in great detail if asked.

You're confusing Korean Americans with actual Koreans. The former is pretty chill and a lot more openminded. The latter? They're hate machines, and not just towards the Japanese. They're very angry people, them.

I'm trying to say, you have to look at history through more macro lens.

Firstly
>distract from internal problems with warmongering.

This is a myth popular among armchair strategists about as stupid as fan death. Loudly yelping about foreign affairs are not effective as distractions and very few are stupid enough to use it for that purpose. What is effective is strict media control that authoritarian governments are great at. Getting the plebs riled up is a great way to get casus belli though so if you ever see that happening that's what it's about.

Now clearly Japan and China are not allies, and Japan will not support China in an aggressive war, I don't think anyone has said that. But if there ever comes a time when China finds itself in a defensive war Japan will have its back, you can be sure on that.

All of Japan's actions since the meiji reformation including the invasion of Korea and China can be seen as a long defensive war against western imperialism. Those countries were slow to modernize and it was important for Japan to modernize them quickly in order to prevent them from being gobbled up by the western empires.

They're probably nice to white people. When it coms to Asians, most get cautious and suspicious. They don't have a very high opinion of people with darker skin either. And we're talking about a nation of people who'd boo their own celebrities if they fucked up in public, people who call their immigrants traitors if they went to work in Japan because they were too poor back home. Korean immigrants have it rough - they're hated by both the Japanese AND the Koreans on the mainland.

Have you ever seen the American approval polls for the president following conflict? After 9/11 the Bush administration got to carry out a war on a country -entirely- unrelated to the incident and with congressional approval. If that's not an example of how easily a stupid nationalistic populace can have their attention redirected in times of conflict I don't know what is.

That you think that Asia will unify because of skin color implies that the entirety of human conflict in a globalized world between two nations with populations that look the same has been a fluke.

There are many examples in history where long standing rivalries, border disputes, and humiliations suddenly become irrelevant once the clash of civilizations begins.

See Greece vs Persia, Vercingetorix, China during Mongol invasions, Shaka the Zulu, etc.

The political issues of the day may change quickly. But trade issues and resource issues quickly become moot once race comes into play.

British people beat up some French people, British people beat up some Irish people, everyone beat up the natives, we almost got in an argument then became a country. Canadian history is pretty boring up until the Great War, where we were essentially used like shock troops by British officers to maliciously attack German forces with no intent of holding ground. We essentially earned enough respect there based on pure kill count and ferocity that the English simply stopped fucking with us, and we've been trying to calm down ever since. Really heavy emphasis on WWI- it was sort of our proxy war for independence, except it was fought by crazed bastards high on mustard gas throwing busted rifles like spears. Canuck infantry took on machine guns with pointed sticks and brass knuckles because the Brits told our boys the Germans has crucified a Canadian on the battlefield.

Japan more or less reluctantly accepted western civilization ad korea stubbornly tried to resist it to point of being called hermit kingdom until they got busted by superior gaijin weapons that were resistant to shitty bows
Now they are both westernized to point they wouldn't look out of place in Europe bar their race

Seeing how china invented gun powder does that make them badass?

Vaguely. Canadian history is sad anecdotes, essentially.
"Look how badass these troops were!"
"Too bad they all died because British officers are stupid"

"We took the most ground on D-day!"
"America doesn't care"

"Hey we fucked up a bunch of natives"

"Don't ask us about Rwanda"

"Hey we sort of started the red scare"

"Our hero raised millions for cancer"
"He died before he could complete his journey"

At least the Netherlands thinks we're cool.

Because culture is a PC way of saying race. Fundamentally it's all about race.

Japan doesn't actually hate chinese people Anon. I hope you understand. Geopolitical rivalries != hate. Geopolitical rivalries only last so long as there are geopolitical reasons to be rivals. If there is a greater threat then they will ally together.

>Have you ever seen the American approval polls for the president following conflict? After 9/11 the Bush administration got to carry out a war on a country -entirely- unrelated to the incident and with congressional approval. If that's not an example of how easily a stupid nationalistic populace can have their attention redirected in times of conflict I don't know what is.

That's when times are good Anon. It's not a distraction from anything when times are good. When times are bad, eg when you need a "distraction" warmongering only adds more instability.

Read up on any history and you'll see. War + internal problems = instant collapse instead of "distraction".

See:
>>100349762

And explain how this squares with your ideas that Japan actually wants to suck China's and Korea's dick.

I think race is a tool used by the rich and powerful to divide the masses and maintain and gain power. Both domestically and abroad. Ultimately, people are more divided by socioeconomic status than not.

And guess what socioeconomic tier both South Korea and Japan belong to?

What an extremely lazy way to argue,

What do you think North Korea is trying to do by beating their war drum so heavily anyway?

>Ultimately, people are more divided by socioeconomic status than not.
>And guess what socioeconomic tier both South Korea and Japan belong to?

I don't even understand what you're trying to say. You just contradicted yourself. If SK and JP are the same then how come they hate each other? Obviously the answer is that they don't. And they don't hate China either.

Also you're somehow implying that Japan hates poor people or something, utter nonsense again.

>the poll
It captures the current political climate when JP and CN are engaged in their sibling rivalry. Meaningless in the long term, just like the rivalry between sparta and athens is meaningless when persia came knocking.

I'm confused, what will never work? Communism? I don't support communism, but that's because I think it's a naive form of government, much like unadulterated capitalism is.

Are you saying my claims are somehow indicative of communism? Have you ever read about Davos Man? Why do you think people are more heavily divided based off of something as perceptual as skin color then they are of their actual, day to day, living conditions?

I don't know who communism bro is and I don't know what that has to do with anything. But he's not me.
>>
>>100350484
I don't know if you're trolling or not anymore.

I'm saying Japan and South Korea's populations and methods of government have far more in common with the west then they do with China.

They hate each other for all the historical baggage between the two countries, which is immense. That isn't to say that people hate other people because they're poor or something, typically it's the poor that hate the rich for being taken advantage of, legitimately or not.

Depends on the Canadian really. There is some that won't shut up about how much better they are at X because they are from Canada. Which is a really fast way to piss some people off. Sort of like someone who is trying to show off to others due to a inferiority complex or something making them want to show off constantly.

If a Canadian doesn't do that then most of the guys around here are pretty chill with them in my region at least.

>>100350734
Yes that's exactly what I mean. I've been the one posting about "macro history" for the past hour, dunno what communism bro is about.

>>100350678
So you subscribe to the "democracy" theory. I'm saying that has only been tested among white countries. Let see a real fight and we will see. Democracies are responsible for some of the worst race based savagery in the modern world. See democratically elected hitler, america up until emancipation, america after emancipation vs native americans, jim crow, south africa. Race is not yet resolved and it will be the basis of conflict if there is to be one.

But I'm not saying there will be a east vs west conflict, just that if there is one in a hypothetical japan would be on the side of the east.

>>100350678
>historical baggage between the two countries
Which 2 countries are you even talking about? JP/CN or JP/KR?

If you think the historical baggage between JP/CN is "immense" then you are simply misinformed. JP/KR is only a little bit more bad.

I understand this is a big topic but I'm not sure if this is the place to get into it. You can read more about it but you need a holistic view of history to really get what I'm saying.
>>
>>100351088
The Democratic Peace Theory? To an extent, yes.

I was talking about JP/KR, but I'm not sure how much greater the baggage between two countries can get honestly.

I'm also confused as to why you think I'm observing history as discrete parts instead of a greater whole.
>>
>>100351088
Rather than democracy at fault national interest have more to do with it. Otherwise America would not go to great lengths overturning govt across the world,Françafrique,Soviet funding rebels etc.
The weak will always be toys for the strong,people are selfish like that and acts of kindness is only a tool to win publicity and moral justification.
