Not true. Every foreign country I visit I get swarmed by beggars because they think I'm rich. One time some ladies got into a huge fight with each other because I chose one as my guide instead of the other. This was a popular tourist location too not a shitty 3rd world country.

Lad, I see people like you swarming Shinjuku every evening. You are all the fucking same, with the same fucking expression that reads "this is my playground, and those damn gooks better not disappoint me". I don't care where you visited, but in Japan, you're fucking nobody. If I were given a penny for every one of you cunts who expect to be treated with reverence just because you have a big nose, I'd not be able to lift my wallet by now.

The vast majority of anime protagonists are manlets. They're only tall if they happen to be love interests in shoujo manga since women like tall men.
