Chances are you’ve seen the very popular video called The Japanese Tradition – Sushi, which is a satirical instructional video on the etiquette involved in ordering and eating sushi. The actors in that video, a comedy duo named the Rahmens, have another stellar film called Kijou No Kuron – Japanese Tradition. The subtitled short film has been posted on Youtube, and I found out that it’s actually part of a compilation DVD called Jam Films 2. The movie is so awesome that I’m thinking about ordering the DVD just so that I can watch this in good quality.
Kijou No Kuron – Japanese Tradition (alternative name: Armchair Theory) describes the quintessential guidelines that a man must follow to achieve success in the dating world. The Youtube poster split up the film into four volumes, and I highly recommend setting aside half an hour of your time and watching 1-4 in order. The first two volumes have a narrator introducing the rules in the style of an instructional video while the last two show the rules being carried out in the real world and have the production values of an actual movie. Absolutely give this a try, you won’t regret it.
