Inoue Mao - Japanese Hot Babe - This is most starkly shown in terms of age. For example, it is widely ackowledged that many idols are older than the u19 or u15 category that they are placed within. However, in what most Europeans would see to be a contradictory stance, this interest in the detail is accompanied by a simultaneous apparent disinterest in the truth of this detail as it is presented. There is also an accompanying playfulness with age that one might not ordinarily associate with the stereotypical rigidity of Japanese culture. The popular idol magazine 'Beppin' for example is happy to associate a widely different age to the same model on consecutive pages of the same edition.
