Best Japan-related comment on Digg ever!

This entry was posted by on Tuesday, 8 May, 2007 at

In this thread, relating to Manga-Kissa’s (Internet Cafe’s) in Japan, I found the best comment in a Japan-related thread on Digg I’ve ever seen (you have to read the preceding one to get the context):

LMAO! I’m sorry, maybe I’m just tired, but I laughed for about 5 minutes after reading that comment. In fact, I’m still laughing… The ignorance of the comment is tremendous – but it’s a blissful, kind type of ignorance! (If that makes any sense at all)

    I think the comment was intended to be humorous b/c it’s poking fun at the first commenter’s use of the word hikikomori (引篭り, recluse) without giving any explanation, as if everyone should know what it means. At least I think s/he’s entitled to the benefit of the doubt.
