Monday is man day here at Anime Vice. I’m joking of course, but it sure does seem like it. Well, CNN has once again brought us important breaking news, and this time it's about the mystery behind Japanese men. It appears as if a good number of Japanese men are becoming “herbivorous”, or have little to no desire to dine on the flesh of the opposite sex. It’s not that they have become totally celibate, it’s just they do not have the burning desire to copulate like a drunken frat boy.

Men have been changing, evolving to be more emotional, and feminine then their yakuza cavemen counterparts. Almost as if Japan is transforming into a Ouran Host Club society. One just has to turn on a Final Fantasy game to know that this herbivorous trend is true. Is it wrong to be a herbivore? After watching this I just realized that I’m a herbivore as well.

With the declining birthrate, this is another nail in Japan’s coffin. It is hard to say if these men are doing anything wrong, since this lack of masculinity is forcing Japan to express it in others ways; like anime for example. So I hypothesis that as more men become herbivorous, more anime will feature GAR characters; not a bad payoff I might say.

I attribute this to the recession. Just wait. When the economy picks up you'll see the GAR men out there in full force

So... japanese men are turning into women... *laughs*  Okay well, that's interesting... it's like they're getting more into the metro-sexual thing (you know... when they're basically gay but aren't into men... just fashion, etc).

I agree with Koiyuki though, the recession could just be making guys take a different approach to life. Something more relaxed and enjoyable... if that makes sense.

They still have gender in Japan? I thought they were already past all that.
