Eastern stories are different from western stories. It’s hard to understand this for a westerner without experiencing eastern stories — so I encourage you to do so.
I’ve recently been awed by Studio Ghibli’s When Marnie Was There and it’s view of the world. The viewer has to observe & think to discover what the story is really about — this kind of movie considers the viewer intelligent enough to do so.
Another kind of perspective I experienced by reading Liu Cixin’s The Three-Body Problem. She tells a different story than western authors. The main characters live through a different kind of struggle and pursue compelling, far from ethically pure goals.
I will seek out these perspectives in the future to broaden my own. I hope you will, too.
