Kawaii
Anybody else just go off the deep end for kawaii?

Kawaii is Japanese for "cute."

Quote:
ince the 1970s, cuteness, in Japanese kawaii (可愛い?) (literally, "loveable" "cute" or "adorable") has become a prominent aspect of Japanese popular culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, behavior, and mannerisms.[1]
wikipedia.org

Some examples are Hello Kitty and Sanrio products.

Quote:
As a cultural phenomenon, cuteness is increasingly accepted in Japan as a part of Japanese culture and national identity. Tomoyuki Sugiyama, author of "Cool Japan", believes that "cuteness" is rooted in Japan's harmony-loving culture, and Nobuyoshi Kurita, a sociology professor at Musashi University in Tokyo, has stated that "cute" is a "magic term" that encompasses everything that's acceptable and desirable in Japan.[9]

On the other hand, those skeptical of cuteness consider it a sign of an infantile mentality.[9] In particular, Hiroto Murasawa, professor of beauty and culture at Osaka Shoin Women’s University asserts that cuteness is "a mentality that breeds non-assertion ... Individuals who choose to stand out get beaten down."[9]

Welcome! I plan on decorating my netbook next. I'll post a picture whenever I get my pieces in. It was a lot of work but it was all worth it in the end!

If anyone is interested, I get my deco-den supplies from http://fullmoon07xxx.ocnk.net/

(Yuki) She has tons of kawaii magazines, nails, etc. all right from her home in Japan!
