The US has a flavour and an accent but it tends to absorb the world's selling points as soon as they emerge, leaving other places looking at their roots, and wondering why being 'true to their style' is so joyless. Surely it is just a flipside of the imperialist coin to expect 'Japanese values' to be 'arthouse', or accuse anything commercial of 'bowing to US values'. You're putting the world in a lose-lose position.
