It seems to me that everything that comes out of Japan is somehow cuter. Even when it’s kind of weird it’s weird in a cute way.

Take this 3D puzzle my brother gave me. In addition to being more difficult than a regular puzzle, ALL of the instructions are in Japanese so I have to figure it out Ikea assembly style (just pictures, no words). I made a couple of mistakes along the way, but in the end it didn’t take all that long to put together.

How does this relate to my first sentence? Look at it! It’s supposed to be a lion and in my mind the designer of this puzzle was successful. It has a mane of sorts and it’s roaring which is really neat but it’s also odd, robotic looking and somehow still CUTE!
