A 29 year old Japanese man, Saitou Takuya (斋藤卓也) who is madly in love (so he thinks) with a girl he saw on the Beijing subway has put up a video of her (that he secretly took with his cell phone, he admits) and asked the public to help him in his search for her. He looks and sounds very desperate to find her in his video uploaded on Youku (we are beginning to LOVE this website!) which includes the following message:
I am a young Japanese guy. I love China and have been here for the last 10 years working as a Japanese teacher. I am hoping to find this Chinese girl I met on the subway. She is the kind of girl with traditional Chinese virtues and would not take the seats on the train meant for the elderly and the kids. Instead she just stands there and lets others who need the seat have it. It is this virtue of hers that has deeply attracted me. It was love at first sight. I am hoping to meet her once again. I am sincere. [Translation by Shanghaiist]
Here are some highly inspirational comments that have come in from netizens:
Japanese pigs are all the products of inbreeding and incest. They are an evil island nation! What a freak! Kill all Japanese pigs! Drive them out from Chinese soil!
Japanese dog, she is not going to come with you. When I am old some day and about to die, I will come to Japan to set off fire crackers.
Look at you, and you want a Chinese woman? Have all the comfort women died in Japan?
As for as Shanghaiist is concerned though, we don’t think Takuya-san caught a glimpse of the mystery subway girl’s face, so she could very well have been a tranny for all we know.
