In the end I can't notice a thing because I keep wondering whether that video is from someone recording their TV with a camera.

Considering how the population of Japan is growing old, I'd expect the characters to get a bit older as well. But the opposite seems to be happening.

Perhaps the growing population of the elderly is increasing intergenerational antagonism, so the younger cohorts are doubling down on youth as a show of resistance.

Or as youth becomes scarcer, representations of it become both more desirable and easier to idealize as the real thing becomes more distant and unfamiliar.

Me? I tend to find it depressing.
