    I have no professional education to back this up, just an overall impression from watching most of these videos. It’s that the need for rapid expansion has lead to a build out of Tokyo that makes it feel like a Hipster that’s trying too hard. Somewhere amongst the leftovers of the WWII era are the spirit of culture that is in an identity crisis with itself.

    Watching the flyover cuts and certain animated sections fuels that meme for me. IMHO

    Great job keeping up the posting!
