Over the top does not even begin to describe Ro's fascination with Japan.

Dude. Seriously.

The person I went out with tonight has a roommate that, in comparison, makes me look like a high living socialite. Absolutely no life, whatever. Obsessed with J-Pop stars and video games. In fact, her horrifying life (at the age of like 26!) encourages me to be successful, so I don't end up like her.

yeah, everything, if it's not computer-animated, looks like a freakin' anime now. It sucks.

Oh yeah, I remember her. I have a strong tendency to agree that it's fucking ridiculous.

Don't fall asleep halfway to the airport, or you may accidently veer down the wrong offramp and end up in Manurewa.

Or die. But ending up in Manurewa would be worse.

It's dodgy enough just getting to the airport!

That's because 99% of Western Civilisation tends to have nothing better to do...

Dear god.

I must admit, I don't get this fascination with the Western perception of Japanese culture. Note "Western perception of". ZOMG THEYZ HAVE AMINES N HI-TECH SHITZ.

Ro never leaves the house. Ever. NO really, never. She's teaching herself Japanese and goes suicidal if one of her J-Rock bands comes to the states and she can't go see them.
