Indeed! Of course, I'm the kind of person that needs a little more explanation than that, I admit. I -can- watch it but it goes against my grain to turn my brain off, I suppose. I'm spoiled that way. =)

Hm. Well, making it a cultural norm makes it a good deal more palatable to me, I think. Kind of interesting introspection on my part. Huh.

I -adore- that outfit. Wonder if the miko in Fuso wear that all the time.
