There are Japanese ginger-haired people?
The Cow-boy God is not Japanese. He comes from Meatmeat Land.

To be fair the Tiny Cow isn't shown to be eating any beef. He just enjoys the drama at the dinner table.
He probably just ate the veggies nobody wanted.
But look how he salivates when the girl pulls that package of beef out. That cow has no scruples. He'd eat his own mother, and did.
Of course he doesn't have scruples. I'm just saying he doesn't eat any. I'm sure he does like the smell. When I was a kid I hated coffee, but still enjoyed the smell.
The cow probably salivates at the sight of beef because he associates it with the grilled veggies he gets to eat when the family cooks beef.
The tiny cow ate a piece of the meat when they where fighting over the last four.

The meat is marbled so wonderfully. Why have I never seen beef like that in the states? Is that due to our horrible agricultural practices?
If you spend as much per gram as they do in Japan, you can get it here.
Check an Asian market, where it is priced above any cut you'd find at your local supermarket
To answer Cena, in a sense, yes. Japan just doesn't have room for huge, crowded ranches and the kind of fields needed to feed hundreds of cows. The end result is a much smaller herd that's more carefully cared for with the resources they do have. You've probably heard the term "Kobe beef" before, that's exactly the kind of meat it's referring to. You can get it in the US, but not for cheap.
A lot of people think that the meat is that well marbled because the cows are never allowed to move, but it's actually the specific breed of cow and how they feed it. It has to be a specific one of 4 breeds of Wanyu cattle, and raised in a certain region. You know how you can't call a whiskey "bourbon" unless it was actually made in Bourbon county, or a sparkling win a champaign unless it came from that region of France? The same standards are true for Kobe beef, which is why you see so many products in the US that label themselves "Kobe style beef".
Watermelon is another thing that's hard to grow, worth a lot, and taken seriously over there. That's why they're so popular in beach scenes on television shows and anime, because in japan, they're a super rare treat that everyone chips in on when going to the beach. As for why its a tradition to smash open something you paid a collective -50 for instead of carefully slicing it and preserving every gram is beyond me.
Thanks for the detailed response. I always did find the watermelon smashing thing to be rather odd. I'm trying to think of an American example of our culture embracing the destruction of expensive food, but I can't think of anything outside of hip hop videos.
