Seen something Japan needs to stop? Send it in!

Because some people are into that. And those people should be put on a watch list.

"Crying Girl - Tears on face".

Labeled as "Crying Documentary", the video features 11 up-and-coming actresses and gravure idols crying.

One after another, the 11 minor female celebs shed real tears as they recount some of the worst days of their lives. The "11 stories of people crying in earnest", as the DVD's tag line states, include some that really don't seem so terrible but instead reflect the rigors of being an up & coming model in Japan's fiercely competitive "idol" culture:

  • Marika Minami "A crying girl in Tennouzu" who was yelled at by her manager.
  • Yuko Narita "A crying girl in Koenji" for being interrupted while playing Pachinko.
  • Mai Fukuda "A girl crying in Shinjyuku" for "touching the loneliness of the city".
  • Risa Yamada "A crying girl in Koenji" for who had been jilted by her boyfriend (and possibly getting back together with him).
  • Nana Ozaki "A crying girl in Akasaka" for being harassed by paparazzi.
  • Momo Shirakawa "A crying girl in Ikebukuro" for being moved by love for all mankind.
  • Kanami Okamoto "A crying girl in Omotesando" saw a bad picture of herself in a magazine.
  • Marika Sono "A crying girl in Shibuya" after a matchmaking party.
  • Shiho Watanabe "A crying girl in Odaiba" who cried when her boyfriend said goodbye.
  • Yuka Motohashi "A crying girl in Asakusa" who has a friend with breast cancer who's engaged to marry.
  • Reiko Aoyama "A crying girl in Nishiazabu" for "knowing the real dirt on show business".
