You have good eyes.
People will probably brush it off as a stereotype, but... well, I don't know. I'm just going by experience, like I usually do. It's funny how the Japanese aren't the smartest people around, but they aim for perfection a lot of the time... which is why a lot of stuff in Japan tends to be well-made. I think the Chinese are smarter than the Japanese, but they don't pay so much attention to the quality of their stuff. All they want is money, and everyone knows Chinese businessmen are extremely shrewd. Of course, that's not necessarily a bad thing, depending on how you see it.
