* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Homer and Bart's stay in a Japanese jail.
-->"I'm sick of doing Japanese stuff! In jail we had to do this dumb kabuki play about the 47 Ronin, and I wanted to be Oshi but they made me Ori!"


Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedlyObscureAnswer: Subverted. At one point, Link says the next question is about Japan. Homer asks if the answer is "Japan," causing Link to look at the card and see that that is indeed the answer. He then yells at someone offstage ([[BilingualBonus in Japanese]]) "You morons! Who came up with that answer?"

* UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}: Several NationalStereotypes references to things Japan is famous for are made: the gong, Creator/AkiraKurosawa, bowing, The Meij Shrine, The Imperial Gardens, HelloKitty, paper thin walls, floor mats, fusuma doors, musical toilets, anime, square melons, {{Japandering}}, sumo wrestling, The Emperor, wasabi, The47Ronin, origami, flower arranging, fish products, their notoriously sadistic game shows, the Tokyo Tower, whaling and Franchise/{{Godzilla}}. The title itself is a reference to the movie ''Film/ThirtySecondsOverTokyo'' about bombings by the Allied Forces on Japan during World War Two.

* [[BannedInChina Banned In Japan]]: This episode was banned for its stereotypical portrayal of the Japanese (nothing too bad, but the Japanese audiences definitely won't like the Hello Kitty factory burning live cats[[note]]even though Hello Kitty is a Korean product, not a Japanese one, and given the two countries' hatred for each other, it would be very offensive to mention this[[/note]], the scene with ''Battling Seizure Robots''[[note]]especially after the whole "Electric Soldier Porygon" fiasco that happened around this time[[/note]], Homer tossing the Japanese emperor into a sumo thong Dumpster, and the sadistic Japanese game show). The episode is even missing from the season 10 DVD release in Japan, so if you're Japanese (or are a foreigner who moved to/is stationed in Japan from another country) and you love this episode of ''The Simpsons'', [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes good luck trying to find it elsewhere]].



* TechnologyMarchesOn: These days, Snake wouldn't need a floppy disk to steal The Simpsons' online bank account; he can just hack the bank website.
