  1. Japanese values won’t change easily. It has ‘acceptability’ (career, success etc) and then it has an extreme underworld (manga, Yakuza etc), but those 2 worlds don’t interact so nothing changes. The Japanese live a controlled existence that allows them to survive in these conditions or makes them into dropouts (e.g. NEETs) or makes them commit suicide. Cultural inertia needs major disasters, such as wars, to change it. Otherwise no one bothers to think or do differently.
