Look at otaku culture in America. This generation was brought up on anime and it shows with how many otaku/weeaboo/wanabese we have today. Theyre a cultural superpower, with many tenets to admire(minimalism,respect for others,not stealing pets for food,cleaner living),unlike the surrounding cultures(rampant animal abuse,rampant pollution,rampant corruption). Japan is currently the cultural 'holy site' of the world. The way Rome,Paris,London,or Constantinople were for a time, spreading their influence through trade,making other cultures want to join them rather than be forced to (not that force hasnt been used by every imperial nation at some point in their history to further their influence)
