I found an app a while back called Sleepy-time Boyfriend, and yes, it’s just as amazing as it sounds. It consists of about a dozen anime-ish drawings of Japanese men in various states of recline, each of which have a series of phrases that match their persona. One is a flirty girl-boy named Sosuke (“Just being with you makes me very happy” and “I guess I should get into bed so you don’t feel lonely”). Another (and my personal favorite) is Sei (voiced by Takaya Kuroda), a kimono-wearing DREAMBOAT with a voice like butter (“Come closer.” YESSIR).
But the one that gave me pause (between laughing hysterically and legitimately getting a little turned on) was this guy, Satoru, whose quotes have to do with being stressed at work, and how he wishes he could spend more time with you, his favorite lover:
Is this a thing? Do Japanese men fly off the handle at their partners when they have a bad day at work so often that apologies are a sexual fantasy? And seriously people, up your standards. My dream man does not apologize for getting angry at me for forgetting shit. He doesn’t get angry at all. In fact, there’s very little talking involved. He’s more a man of action… *cough*
