Does India participate in the ISS program? I don't think they do.

The average Japanese rarely eats Sushi either.

Americans hardly know anything about Japan yet so many claim they adore Japan and its culture.

They aren't, it's too expensive for them.

I like how one of the articles phrased Japan and India's potential relationship; Japan is developed with money to spend but has an old population and low economic growth while India is underdeveloped and poor but with a young population and high growth.

I don't know, I still would need actual numbers to convince me the average adult didn't watch anime; sushi on the other hand I can believe.

This is sad because Chinese culture and history has so much potential to be a great setting to a great movie but right now they're focused on outspending Hollywood which doesn't necessarily make for a quality movie.

Anime is just in general over dramatic, repetitive, and way to overly sexualized.
The Chinese movies have always been bad (with only a handful of good ones as exceptions), however the fact you expect China to keep making Kongfu movies is bizarre. Just because the west enjoys such a fake China? I myself am very sick of Jacky Chan because he just loves to b the clown for western audience. It is like asking the British to keep making Harry Potter kind of movies. And China is still making a LOT of kongfu movies/TV shows, too many, you just don't know about them.

I don't worry about Hollywood. Hollywood makes a few great movies every year, but 99% is low class trash as well. High spending, high box office =/= high quality, right?

haha, where in the world do you expect adults to frequently watch anime? Trust me, it doesn't represent culture. I hope Americans stop thinking of this when they talk about Japanese culture.

Well I would look more highly on the Japanese if this were true since I hate anime.

Jackie Chan is a very patriotic Chinese national who has been making more serious films aimed at the domestic Chinese audience so based off of your supposed description it is strange you would still dislike him.

As for the Chinese movie industry right now it is bad plain and simple. If China wants to make a diverse selection of films that's up to them but right now they're spending a lot of money on a lot of movies that still can't compete with Hollywood. If they mature to the point where they do get better I'd love to watch them but until then as an American I would only watch movies distinctly about China for my personal enjoyment of Chinese culture (kung fu, ancient Chinese emperors, evil dragons, stuff like that).

With that being said I think within a decade or two the Chinese audience will evolve in taste to the point where they demand movies of more debth than something like Warcraft (a western movie that couldn't compete with other western movies).
