Summary 內容: 自平成年代起,日本的流行文化於亞洲地區甚至全世界有着不可動搖的影響力,其中的電視劇、流行音樂及動漫產業吸引世界的目光,是日本其中一種重要的軟實力。可是走進新的令和年代,面對來自內外的挑戰及衝擊,「平成歌姬」不再叱咤風雲,電視台節目收視低迷,日本的流行文化產業會如何應對?香港人會否繼續「崇拜」日本流行文化?
我們請來兩代日本流行文化專家,與你細說平成的輝煌、展望令和的可能。

Since the Heisei era, popular cultures from Japan have had an unshakable influence among Asian countries and other parts of the world. Japanese television drama, popular music and animations served as the significant means of soft power appealing to the globe. Yet, from recent years, such industries in Japan faced various challenges from both internal and external realms. How would the industries do to tackle such challenges? Will our perception to Japanese popular culture change?
