| Successfully capture the culture of emotion/identity suppression in Japan and the younger generation may reach the breaking point.
"It's so difficult to be naked!" cried Amuro, the mysterious *villain* like character in "Bride for Rip Van Winkle".

Yes, in this world, we are always living under others' values. Those *others* love to attack you with their values without mercy. In Asian culture, this can be even worse. You may find less respects on people's life. Especially for the *elders*, who always have rights to criticize the *youngsters*. Traditional values always need to win, new values are always suppressed until it gets to the point to break through all the walls. However, lots of us prefer to be passive and live in our own shells.

Not surprisingly, internet thus becomes so popular in Asia. Even in country like China where Internet censorship and surveillance has tightly implemented, a large population of netizens are easily spotted out there. It's just because people need a way out! They need their own space and supporters. And, they need to speak out for themselves.

Although many lies exist in the viral reality, we probably still find truth and beauties there. And going beyond that, we find who we really are and whom we really need.
