One reason for why Japanese society has such an affinity for robots, whereas Western civilization not as much.  Is the Western belief in the soul.  The Western belief in the soul makes Westerners either uneasy because robots don't have a soul, or because a kind of malice is attributed to robots (Battlestar Galactica).  Whereas the Japanese don't think of robots as having a soul or not having a soul, and are more at ease with them.
