I'm not sure that it's shocking to the Japanese in the sense that it's egregious; Instead it's like saying, "Hey look an outsider has embraced our culture. That's peculiar."

It's like the first time I saw highlights of a woman dunking on ESPN. I wasn't shocked that a woman intruded on a space reserved for men. I was shocked in the sense I saw something different.

A black guy singing enka? That's different.

I wouldn't consider that to be Enka. There is none of the ultra wobbley vibrato.

Also, is he really singing or just milly vanillying it?

Not that Americans do not do the same thing, especially in regard to those crazy Japanese. Though I can say I was kind of surprised that there is a music show (Music Machine) hosted by a Japanese-fluent foreigner.

I thought you had to be wearing a kimono for it to be real Enka?
