No.. 100 years war WAS in France. I just mixed up the numbers of 377 (or was it 333?) years of Spanish colonization to another part of history. My bad.

My grandpa would kill me if he were still alive, knowing that I'm heavily in to anime. The Japanese left lots on scars on SEA and China especially among the older folks. I guessed there are so many mixed Japanese is because of WW2. Not to mention that Asians are ambitious and used, to look up to First World countries which resulted in migrations to the west.

Then you really don't know the whole story, "The Great Raid" would make a great reference movie if you want to know about the Japanese occupation in the Philippines, On the other hand, the reference for the Filipino/Japanese mix they are referring can be found here:
