President Obama thanks Japan’s prime minister for karaoke, anime and emoji | Mashable

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the White House on Tuesday, April 28 to discuss free trade and, apparently, anime.

“Today is a chance for Americans, especially our young people, to say thank you for all the things we love from Japan. Like karate and karaoke. Manga and anime. And, of course, emojis,” said President Obama on the meeting, as the two addressed the press.

    Don’t forget hentai, loli, and doujinshi. He said karate but forgot about
    jiujitsu, judo, aikido, etc. It would be better just to say martial arts.
    Seriously though, mad respect for Obama for saying anime and manga in one
    sentence.
