Think of all the weird things that one instantly associates with Japanese culture. Wacky television game shows. Green tea-flavored Coke. Tentacle rape. What culture on this planet could spawn these things but the one that made eating raw fish not just mainstream but fashionable?
So when I saw this figure, it didnâ€™t even faze me. If youâ€™re at all familiar with Japanese pop culture, you take this sort of strangeness as a matter of course. Actually, the first thing I thought was that this figure looked really cute. Really shy. Like sheâ€™s hiding a secret. I guess thatâ€™s one way to put it.
Incidentally, if anybody reading this is looking for May Parker, this is not the Spider Girl that youâ€™re looking for.
