Interesting. Some surprisingly perceptive comments, from people who know how otaku really think.
I wonder where he found trains with so many people reading manga? On my last four or five visits to Japan, I haven't seen a single person reading manga on the trains (unless it was on their cellphones, of course).
Too bad the lighting was so bad for the Junko Mizuno segment--she's actually really cute. And short! I'd be amazed if she was more than 4'9". She told me she cringes whenever she sees some short Japanese guy heading towards her--she gets hit on a lot by them because they're desperate to find a girlfriend shorter than them.
And I had no idea Nekojima Rei was a woman!
