Taking a peek inside, I saw a table of well-dressed something Japanese women. They were all chatting away, sipping from martini glasses like it was their job, and staring wide-eyed up at the SATC girls above them — the Japanese equivalent of Carrie and the gang, doing their thing in Tokyo. With the immense popularity of the TV show and now the blockbuster movie, the NYC gals have dug their high heels deep into the female psyche all over the globe. What first attracts them is the glamour of it all. They, too, yearn to swan around town with Fendi bags and Manolo Blahniks, downing coffee and cocktails in the trendiest places, chatting about boys, clothes, sex and love. Aside from the surface extravagances, the "Sex and the City" women are unique, complex and independent.

Sex and the City 2 follows on from the first film, showing Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda two years into the future.
Sex, after all, was not something Japanese women discussed openly, nonchalantly, like Carrie and her friends do at any given brunch. These issues are universal to all women, regardless of where they are from, and I think this is why it also appeals to Japanese women. Nagashima would go on to voice Carrie throughout the series, as well as the two film follow-ups.
