Suggestions[edit]

The international popularity of certain Japanese cultural products, like anime, manga and J-horror, and their impact on the world could probably be briefly mentioned in the lead. J-horror is not named at all in the article, despite being an influence for succesful film series including the The Ring films (The Ring and The Ring Two) and The Grudge, as well as for video game series, such as Silent Hill, Fatal Frame and Siren. Maybe this is also a kind of soft power, like the Korean Wave is, that could also possibly be mentioned in the lead and main body. Ideas? Hula Hup (talk) 14:05, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
