I had heard of this. Apparently Stitch is popular enough in Japan still not only to justify “The Enchanted Stitch Room”, but a whole new series where he’s with some random Japanese girl instead of Lilo. Whatever. I’m sure it will be no more offensive than the American tv series and it sure appears to be better animated at least!
It just doesn’t seem right that things like this can be going on in the world and I was not informed. I had never heard of this and now am vaguely obsessed with the concept. When that duck thing walked out I nearly died. Oh Japan, why do you bewilder and yet intrigue me so? I would encourage everyone to go to that website listed at the end… I have no idea what it says but it’s amazing.
