    Well, it's not explicitly shown that the genitals are bleeding. It could be, say, the boy's inner thigh, or his stomach. Still, from the location of the blood and the bloodiness of the knife in his hand, the viewer is led to believe that the boy somehow mutilated his own genitals, yes. How nice! :lol:

    When I think back on the month-long trip I took through Japan, some specific images come to mind.

    The bright, neon lights of Tokyo:
    Spoiler :


    Kinkakuji, the Golden Pavillion, in Kyoto:
    Spoiler :


    The thousands of torii gates winding up the hill at Fushimi Inari Taisha, the head shrine to the Shinto deity Inari, in Kyoto:
    Spoiler :


    The Suntory Museum of Art in Osaka, which manages to be both ugly and beautiful at the same time, and where we saw a large exhibition of the works of Alphonse Mucha:
    Spoiler :


    The serene modernism of the waterfront at the Port of Kobe:
    Spoiler :


    The old porcelain torii gate at the Tozan shrine in the small pottery town of Arita:
    Spoiler :


    Back in Tokyo, the ridiculously crowded, jungle-like electronics shops of Akihabara:
    Spoiler :


    And, of course, the gothic lolita boutiques, vintage shops, cosplayers and various subculture kids of Harajuku:
    Spoiler :


    And let's not forget the bullet trains:
    Spoiler :


    You want cool? That trip was WAY cool.

    You bet ! I've been wanting to go to Japan for years...:sad:
    Hmm, it's gonna be hard to comeup with more coolness...

    How about a card cut in half by a bullet.
