Have you ever been curious about Japan’s underground love scene after watching a ton of manga/anime involving Host Clubs and the like? Are you just curious of how other cultures approach the matter of love for sale? Then please, give this documentary a go:



The Great Happiness Space. Tale of an Osaka Love Thief. (2006) IMDB
Welcome to the Great Happiness Space: Rakkyo Café. The club's owner, Issei (22), has a staff of twenty boys all under his training to become the top escorts of Osaka's underground love scene. During their training, they learn how to dress, how to talk, how to walk, and most importantly, how to fake relationships with the girls who become their source of income. Join us as Osaka's number one host boy takes us on a journey through the complex and heartrenching world of love for sale in the Japanese underground.


I’ve just watched it a couple of days ago and it blew me away. It’s all soooo twisted and disturbing and sad, especially for women and how the system takes full advantage from their low self-esteem and the pressure of fulfilling traditional gender roles, even if they do it in such a sick way… and don’t get me started on what I think of these “hosts” now…
Anyway, I don’t quite know what to do with myself now other than spread the word, recommend it to whoever passes by and make sure you all suffer with me.
