    Not in and of itself, but teenagers are idiots, why make it easy for them to be idiots?

    I would say no but then again I don't like the concept of cultural appropriation. There are too many people looking to be victims.  If you are respectful then it should be fine.  If things are done to mock Japanese then that would inappropriate but not appropriation IMO.  It is like the Toga Party in Animal House the movie.  They aren't disrespecting ancient Rome at all.
