It's pretty obvious that social media addiction is what's causing depression it amongst Japan and Western cultures you can easily link high social media use to countries that have High depression rates and suicide

I just realized when I was passing by Little Tokyo in LA there was a Japanese styled cafe that had a cardboard cutout of “Menhera-Chan” outside their entry. Does anyone know it’s influence in the west??

Great video, important unconventional topic. I love the artistic scenes in this video (like the overflowing water pitcher). I hope viewers can see the artistic/urban side of this and not simply interpret it through a suburban American lens. (Suicidal people are all around us, not just dressing different in Tokyo.)

So, isn't ゆみかわいい similar or the same to pastel goth? Combining pastel colors with dark elements. Either way, I loved what the designer had to say at the end about changing the negative views people have toward mental illness.

Sav-Chan this is NOT pastel goth. I actually relate to the goth culture and Yami kawaii culture, my Yami clothing and expression is extremely dissimilar from the pastel goth clothing and expression.

As someone who is/has been dealing with depression, this video really helped me. I’ve always wanted to be a fashion designer, and now I want to use that dream to help people like me. Clothes/style have a greater impact than most people can imagine. It helps people find that piece of happiness that they didn’t know that they still had. It’s amazing.

It's not just Japan that has problems with individuality issues. It's also very prevalent in countries like India, China, Central and South American countries. I myself have experienced both U.S. culture and Latin culture, and the former was a lot better growing up. In U.S. it's all about doing the best you can at what you are capable of doing (effort). This was not the case back when I went school to Central America as a kid. I remember in the U.S. getting extra help from my teachers in primary school (grade 1 -3), on how to remember different subjects like reading, math, etc. In Central America, it was more about how the entire class was doing on test scores. I remember there being a really smart foreign student in my class, but because the whole class did poorly she still had to attend the after school test reviews. In the U.S. a kid helping his classmate learn the material is actually something encouraged. Meanwhile, when I went to school in Central America as a kid, I would get yelled at for helping my classmates or asking them questions. The other huge problem was the alpha culture when it comes to Latino men. It was very rare to find a man trying to deescalate a conflict, even when it was between a man and a women. It was even worse at schools since feelings of failure and jealousy are lot more rampant. A female foreign student from Russia one year went from being the coolest among other girls (pretty and spoke 3 languages), to being the most hated at the end by other girls, all because she tried and beat the strongest boy in class at arm wrestling (me). After that event, the majority of the girls at the school kind of ignored her, and I was labeled as a weak boy for losing to a girl (which lead to us two becoming good friends). I remember on her last day at the school she told me she wasn't feeling well during the national anthem, so I told her to sit down and I would block the teacher's view to her desk. Unfortunately, she passed out and fell off the desk on to the cement floor below and that was the last time I saw her again. As our gym teacher was carrying her out to go to a nearby clinic, one of the girls in the class confused asked 'who was she' which made me tear up. Most of the girls had ignored her for so long for being a little different that they actually forgot she was in the class. Basically, individuality should be celebrated as long as you are not physically harming anyone or yourself. Do the best you can at what you think you are capable of doing.

actually a suprisingly interesting piece, i hadent expected it when i clicked. a very well made piece discusing the issue of mental illness in japan, but alike many other videos that explore this topic it examines the issue from the issue of a younger generation, the oppressed social group for lack of a better explanation. If possible @Refinery29, could you do a second followup piece exploring the topic but from the viewpoint of the elder generation?

It's not only fashion. There are many other things such as games, traveling, writing, drawing. At some point we all become depressed, some more than others to the point that they feel like the best way to get out of that Depressed state once and for all is to commit suicide. I'm a guy, I'm currently 21 and would you imagine that I cried for my death from since I was 8? Why? At that young age I began understanding how cruel life can be and at that young age I imagined the worst. It came to me as a dream...no. Not a dream, a nightmare. Seeing how fellow humans treat each other. And i guess you could say it's because I've read too many books or watched too many anime or movies but if you look, games, anime's,novels, movies...nearly any entertainment shows this. How our ancestors treated each other. Now look at us, imagine what the future would be. I got so depressed just actually seeing how evil, wicked and downright cruel this world is and would soon be. Me a boy at that age. I hate the world and everything in it. Every time I woke up I got angry that u actually woke up. Some if you might/might not believe there is a God. Before I didn't believe but when I did d started believing I begged for my death. I want to die so badly. Some if you believe in the entity called Death. On my very first surgery I was unconscious but in my mind I heard someone or something called my name three times for some reason I didn't answer. I later regretted when I realize that it was death who was calling me. Now there are a few things that still bound me to this world. I used to sat I don't have dreams. We all have dreams we all want our dreams to come true the bad thing is, some of us will/would do ANYTHING to make that dream come true. And that's why I gave up. Technologies are being made under the pretext of "to make life easier/better" but look around. What have you seen gone better? And if you did I'm sure you find more backlashes, a retreat instead of a stable and safe advancement. The world is getting harder and harder to live hour after hour, day after day, month after month, year after year. To learn a subject or to apply for a job despite being qualified you need money which is one if nearly every man/woman&child's flaw. A major need to the point we resort to killing in it to get the money. It is getting harder and harder to live. Its depressing to watch the world continue taking this treat either without knowing or stupidly, idiotically not caring of the grand consequence. I the we I always wanted a quick death. I've been begging for it since til now but I always find myself waking up. So far the things that has me distracted is anime, novels, games and a very few music. I wish to see everyone in the world caring for life. Life is very VERY short and taking it for granted just spells your death faster than it should be. Some people are afraid of dying but look at the logic, if you didn't exist in the first place would you be afraid of death? Death is the inevitable, it is expected sooner or later. I always wonder what is the meaning when one say "live life to the fullest" when before I was known man could live up to 100yrs but now we died either before/just after birth or at a young age. Some of us get depressed for many reasons, to some of us these depression are so strong that we are left only but to commit suicide. Some of us has no friends, family relatives left alive, some of us may/mat not have as me one to love and them to live us back just as genuinely. Sometimes I like talking to people who are like that. I like to hear their story or what drives them to commit suicide. I want to kill myself, I want to die but I don't want a painful death. I'm not afraid if anything but pain. Be and it internal/external or mental and some of you would agree were the me because if we were to receive such unbearable pain we will "break"(mental death).

these people seek social recognition through clothing, artificial and futile style of behavior. They forget the noble spiritual values ​​and go crazy because they are never satisfied and happy, never live in peace because they expect recognition and flattery from others. And when they can not endure suffering, they commit suicide.

I was in Tokyo over the summer. I am quite young, in my teenage years, and I understand Japanese. When I first heard of Yami Kawaii, I knew straight away it was something...cute but dark. I didn't want to ask, in fear of sounding rude. Then I saw this video, and now I unerstand! I was wondering why it wasn't called こわいかわいい (Scary Cute) but I think I understand now that the Japanese culture likes to make things so it is fitting to what everyone in that catagory feels like! The style is so cute yet emotional and I really do hope every person who fits in the Yami Kawaii catagory recieves the help they need! I think they are very brave for showing their true selves!
