  5. The way they can be unique and stylish in their own manner as well as their clothing is unique that bring out their imagniation. The experience seen in japanese pop culture is unforgetable and the people are well mannered :)

  6. Pop Culture in Japan is mostly wild, unique and creative that you don’t see very often and it’s nice to have an alternative when it comes to Animation, Video Games, Comics, etc. that can showcase that the rest of the world can offer something amazing to the rest :)

  7. Japanese pop culture is a culture that supports creativity in every sense of the word. From Moe and super cute to downright brutal violence, from their rich past to the major distant future. Japanese pop culture Supports my Imagination and keeps my life interesting and adventurous, thats what i love the most about it :)

  8. The uniqueness and creative things that they provide :D

  9. I love the quirkiness of the culture and the fact that no matter what category of it you’re interested in: visual kei, lolita, cosplay etc. Its excepted and you’re not segregated from social groups because if what you love :D

  10. Would so like to visit whilst in Melbourne, seem like the right thing to do… Lovely service, great food and a dash of moe and class <3

  11. what i specifically love about Japanese pop culture is the manga and anime films (Naoki Urasawa, Hayao Miyazaki); very original creative stories with philosophical morals hidden behind. Japanese games are also high standard with character designs and exploring unlimited genres. Gyakuten Saiban series and Takio no Tatsujin drum rhythm games are my favourite games. I also absolutely adore collecting rilakkuma bear goods products! kawaii lazy bear >_<

  12. I love the costumes.

  13. I love Japanese culture because it is so bright and unique. I love that it cute and so friendly. :D

  14. What I love about Japanese culture is the anime and manga! I don’t know where I would be without it! It is so unique, colorful and bright! It is amazing!!!!! I love cosplaying and going to conventions!!!! ^_^

  15. I love watching anime and seeing the unique costumes

  16. I’ve always adore Japanese pop culture since i was a little kid, because it’s always so unconventional and it had lightened up my world with unimaginable ideas and entertainment. especially in manga and anime, where perfection is possible.
    i remember when i was 5 yrs old, my parents asked me where do i want to go when i grow up, i said Japan without any hesitation, they asked why, i said “because they have vending machines!” (because i was watching Digimon at that time and they had vending machines!!!)
    I just LOVE Japanese culture, the anime, the manga, the food, the costume, the cosplay, the language, the culture…. EVERYTHING!!!! xD

  17. What I love about Japanize pop cloture is the amazing outfits, make up and hairstyles!!!!
    They are just fantastic

  18. The pop culture in Japan is sweetly unique. It stands on the most latest of fashion trends and is constantly evolving with the times. I love that it can never be defined by one thing. There are so many aspects of pop culture in Japan from manga’s, anime’s, conventions, clothing styles, even behaviours. It’s got layers of different sub culture. Within Harajuku fashions there are visual kei, gyaryu and kawaii fashion.
    My favourite part of the Japanese culture is that they aren’t afraid to explore new boundaries and try new and unusual combinations to create something so unique, it’s catchy.

  19. I think that Japanese pop culture is adorably cute and I’ve loved it ever since I was in Highschool. The stories evolve to stay with the times and the animation style evolves with it. The outfits are creative and beautiful with vivid colours and look pristine. Japanese pop culture is unique and full of life, and its enthusiasm and dedication to the art form can’t be matched anywhere else in the world.

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
