So I’ve lived in japan for one year before and actually I’m obese when I’ve there and I lost a lot of weight in just 3 months because in there you have to baby yourself and I can say that Japan is really a very advanced and rich country but it’s just that the people were really kinda weird they were so busy working because everything is expensive

I grew up in Japan and I am very proud of what these people are doing and being. Japan is really a shaming culture. I have had so many friends who attempted to commit suicide because they were constantly judged for being who they truly are. Which is bs. These people being authentic and expressing their mental illness parts will really help and heal so many people out there. Thank you.

I've been a psychological patient since childhood, and psychiatric patient for nearly ten years now. Mental illnesses are taboo in my country as well. I adopted the Yume Kawaii style a few years ago and I find it relaxing, I feel it's a coping mechanism, but I've never tried Yami Kawaii. Actually, the thought of it scares me a bit, and it makes me angry at the same time, because I feel as if people who dress Yami Kawaii and share that kind of memes in social media are making fun of the illnesses and suffering of thousands of people, not just mine. But that's in my country. I see it is something totally different in Japan, where the Yami Kawaii people pretend to spread the word about mental illnesses so people can talk about it openly without being stared or mocked at. This video changed my views and opinion. Not all Yami Kawaii people are bad, disrespectful or mean like I thought.

The cause of this trend manifests itself in the west as well in internet culture. You see everywhere these days jokes like “I have clinical depression” and I wanna die, what are we here for. Obviously people are joking but I can imagine that inside a lot of these people feel this way.

If this is what it takes to get people even considering having more conversations about mental health, I'm all for it! I understand why people are concerned but I think there's a major difference BECAUSE of how taboo mental health is in Japan. From what I see, Tumblr artists use mental health as an aesthetic or whatever to make their character unique, but people DON'T want to stand out in Japan. That's why I think Menhera-chan can bring fans together to share their experiences more than have people commenting "wow such a cool character with a deep personality". In the west people want to be unique to stand apart from what's been done, but menhera is more about people CONNECTING with each other in a society where mental health is the elephant in the collective room of the entire country. It might seem like romanticizing to us to pair suicidal symbolism with cuteness, but you have to realize that we're WAY more open about talking about the true horror of mental health. We're open to talking to our friends and family without the backlash you get over there. Cute fashion is already an established thing in Japan, so to even BEGIN to break down the taboo, I think it's a good place to start with combining familiar fashion with mental health.

i like that they use a state of being to make a fashion statement ....or a form of protest. The reality is that illness is shawn everywhere and people who are ill...of any sort..... they disappear. it is easier to deal with what u pretend it does not exist. But doing so in Japan they force themselves upon an ostracizing society. In some ways this is an outlet, a form of therapy using a different media. It does not harm anyone and it make the person protagonist of their own life in a whole different way.

I lowkey wish that this documentary could have been pulled of a bit more empathetically towards the people that dress in yume kawaii. The reporter felt somewhat dismissive and judgemental - which is okay. Not everyone has to understand how Depression feels and I'm happy she seemingly hasn't experienced it! - but I really think that putting an (seemingly) neurotypical/'normal' person in charge of this report disminished the potential it had greatly. Yume Kawaii is not about glorifying or romanticizing mental illness. It's a fashion that says "We are here" in a nation that silences and marginalizes mentally ill individuals and the first step towards a healthier approach to mental health. In Japan it's common to suddenly die while working at your desk, there are nets under office buildings to stop suicide attempts - but in modern day Japan a mentally ill person does not exist as long they deny their existence. Imagine growing up in such a culture, imagine getting depressed - because you probably will - and ruining around with this untreated depression while working a high stress job till you die or kill yourself. But Yume Kawaii stands up to this mess! It is precious and needs to be protected for that reason - not put down by a western news outlet as something creepy or weird.

There's nothing wrong with trying to put something that is usually dark, in a lighter tone. I often make mild jokes about my own anxiety and depression, trying to put it in a better light and to be able to smile more. It's a way of coping. But the problem is with making something so serious into something else, like cuteness, is that it can become trendy in a way that could be dangerous. Self-harm, suicide and mental illnesses are generally not cute. Do not go around saying stuff or posting things like "Kyaa, I should really end my life today

Interesting video.... Japan apparently is a very stressful place, especially in the workplace. People need to loosen up and be more friendly to each other how hard is that? Well, it's their culture something that can't change from day to night. But people should be more open and talk to each other instead of bottling up their feelings. I will never fully understand a suicidal and depressed person, but I do hope they find happiness!
