 Probably he installed Debian with English locale.
 debian-installer just guesses users location with its locale, and select
 corresponding mirror, so selected US mirror.

 No, fonts-vlgothic. ttf-* is transitional package and gone.
 And fonts-ipafont-gothic/mincho package is also good.

 I recommend to use mozc, not anthy. mozc is "Google 日本語入力" opensource
 version, developed by some Japanese input experts in Google (and one developer
 was main developer for anthy). Unfortunately, anthy development has stopped
 over years. 

 # also I'm anthy package maintainer for these 3 or 4 years, but think it
   as kind a legacy software... ;)
