Recently I've started to actually learn Japanese and contemplate moving there once I mastered the language, already had knowledge in an area of specialty, and professional experience so that I could actually be a useful member of society there. It's clean, the trains are quiet and on time, there no, "urban youths", to tolerate if you catch my drift. I'm starting uni next fall, so that's a long ways off. This is sort of like a cross-roads in my life where any kind of future seems like a realistic possibility. However, as I did more research I became painfully aware of the elephant in the room: foreigners are not accepted and have no defined role in Japanese society. Let me preface this by stating 2 things. 1.This post is not intended to be political. 2.I'm not one of those morons who think Japan should be shamed into adopting Europe's retarded approach to letting in outsiders.

Before this point, I thought problems people who went there had could mostly be attributed to their lack of understanding the social etiquette. Of course some loud idiot would stand out and be rejected. I figured a person who did the work involved to fully understand the language and the ins and outs of social interaction would be just fine, but that't not what I found. There's a lot to unravel, so i'll start with the biggest thing that struck me, housing discrimination. The way I see it, I don't care how hard it is to get in. I don't care if they don't let anybody in at all. They could make people pass Kanken 1, however, doesn't a person who does get in, who does meet the requirements, deserve the ability to get something as basic as housing? Shouldn't something as essential as that be guaranteed? If they just want some South Korean temp laborers, fine, but what I see is a sort of half-assed acceptance. Would other countries really be so pissed if they didn't let in anybody? Is it just to appease the, "international community"? There's probably similar stuff involving health care or other such things, but I don't know much about that and you get the idea.

From what I've read, the way you're perceived as a foreigner is very binary. Either people will be hostile towards you, or more likely they'll treat you like some kind of attraction. There's no third option. Doesn't matter how long you've been there, or how well-adjusted you try to be, there's no third option(recognition). I suppose physical attraction plays a role in which of the two categories you get placed inPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

This is all very good to know and i'm very thankful towards you for explaining it to me. Maybe i'm in a trasitional phase and these are the growing pains.


>even some of the staunchest conservatives would have respect for an Asian person with high professional credentials and perfect English
What are you talking about? A lot of people openly hate Chinese right now and a Japanese business owner got a bomb threat recently even. Also your post is a lot of assumptions about Japan from stuff you've read. In Tokyo at least, there is a lot of different levels of how much acceptance someone gives you. However, most western foreigners have trash Japanese. There are very few of them that actually read regularly (books, not manga) and the depth of the types of conversation they can do is limited. I also met a lot of westerners in Japan that would criticize Japanese culture and complain while being in their country. I'm not white, and I find racism in Japan to be more or less on par with how it is in the states, maybe even a little less.

How has anime/nip stuff changed your personality? What were you like after you really got into it compared to before?

In elementary school I probably spent more time in the office than in class. I almost compulsively did stuff to tick the teacher off and she wasn't actually that great considering how poorly she dealt with me. Around middle school I started watching typical slice of life crap. I started comparing myself to the characters. They were polite, courteous and thoughtful. They just seemed better than me, so I started trying to emulate them. It wasn't an immediate change, but I grew to be a lot more respectful of adults and in control of myself. It sort of put me on a better path. I did also start noticing how much more freedom characters seemed to have compared to me in my suburban environment, which i'm still kind of bitter about, but I wouldn't consider getting more perspective a bad thing.

>prioritizing harmony of a group now over self-affirmation.
i wonder if these two thought processes are mutually exclusive. sometimes harmony or what is best for a group sometimes feel like it can lead to self-affirmation. i can see what you mean, though.


My personality hasn't really changed much since I was about 8-9. Incredibly anti-social, very lazy, very coarse in all manners.


Well.. Devil May Cry is a video game but everyone says it's animesque. I found the lead character Dante's laid back attitude and heart of gold in the face of his fractured family and constant fighting inspiring, since I had a family that fought and backstabbed each other so much. The rewarding difficulty of the game taught me to be both a go-getter and patient. I know that's a lot for a goofy action game, but looking back I think it made an impression on me, as I've been a fan of DMC since I was about 7 years old.

I developed the habit of bowing when I apologize. I try not to do it, but if I bump into someone on accident I clasp my hands together in the praying position and nod my head down a bit before saying sorry.
I write/ draw a bit so anime has affected me the most their. I instinctively draw people with those low japanse tables, that no one in the western world uses.


Watched the first ep of "Power of Hope – Precure Full Bloom" (Otona Precure 23).
This is the timeskip sequel to "Yes Precure 5" but it's not a kids show anymore. This is the show for people who watched Precure 10+ years ago.

So far it's an interesting take. They chased their dreams and became who they wanted to be… but now the realities of being an adult are starting to rear their head. Nozomi can't help the kid in her class because the problems aren't something a teacher can solve, Rin is passed over at work simply because the other person was better, etc. And somewhere along the line their transformation devices disappeared, maybe because they grew up and out of being Precure…
The gang gets together for drinks, but in the darkness a new menace emerges.

Anime made me check out more indie stuff. Technically anime is indie, even in Japan, barring a few mainstream hits (ie. PreCure, One Piece).

Has anyone watched this show? Strong Yume Nikki vibes here. The protagonists are able to cross over to and explore a surreal, dreamlike, and very dangerous parallel world. The settings and atmosphere are spooky and delicious. I don't find shows that vibe me this way very often, highly recommend it.

It's okay. Nowhere near as good as the source material, though. Anime shifted events around which made the protagonist's character arc kinda janky by comparison.

I recommend checking out either the novels or the manga instead. They are an absolutely stellar breath of fresh air and it's a damn shame they screwed up the anime adaptation.


Have you read Roadside Picnic?

Yes, it's a new Madoka movie.

Today I was ordering a wig for cosplay, and mom ended up picking out a wig for herself because the "thought it would be fun to wear it out sometimes". It was just a simple brown bob-style wig, but I think mom might be a closet cosplayer.

So, do any of you guys have any experiences to share of sharing anime with your parents or other family members? do hey like it at all or is it more "you watching yer chinese girl cartoons again son?"
I've shown my mom every miyazaki movie and lots of other anime films, she's a pretty big fan. On the other hand, my dad is all "miyazaki? I thought we bombed that place"
My one older brother used to be a DBZ fan, now the only anime he can stomach is Akira.

ok bd


Sadly none of my parents really care much for anime, except for maybe my mum since she watched lupin the third when she was younger.
My sister was really into shoujo yaoi animes though like Free! around the period it came out, and my cousin supposedly knows Japanese, though there's yet to be anyone else in the family to confirm this lol

Most of my family are pretty ok with my interests, though no one else in the family is much of a nerd save my cousins in Canada. I did however wrangle my sister into being a weeb. She’s watched seven deadly sins, Jojo, sailor moon, she’s got a small figure collection like I have and her room is way more organised with merch then mine is lmao.

I tell my dad the most abt my nerd shit though, divorced family so whenever I was in his car on my way to his id tell him about what new thing I like and what he’s spending his paycheck on for the next month. He listens and sometimes bursts out laughing at the absurdity but in a way that appreciates the mad shit he’s hearing. Heard him say ‘The Japanese are mad, aren’t they? I love it’
Pub nights with my dad are always fun because of that


Cute, how is she now.

Which do you prefer? I actually like watching anime more. With a book you get total freedom to imagine things the way you like and with animation there's a lot for your senses to chew on. Manga is in that mid-ground where you don't have as much freedom or stimulus. Even visual novels are better since they have sound and color. Also, I like binging through stuff all at once. With an anime, you only have to wait a couple months to do that, but manga that's currently being published could take years to finish.
In manga's favor, it's sometimes better at actual story telling since nothing's cut and individual panels can have a lot more detail on them. I also get that anime basically works like an advertisement for its source material, but it's still not hard for me to pick between one or the other.

Added sound and color would make a visual novel. Motion is the biggest advantage anime has over manga.


I prefer manga because the art is more attractive and I can follow the story at my own pace. Anime is usually adapted from manga and they change so many things it doesn't resemble the original; I also dislike the voice acting, be it in japanese or english.


Literally don't care, I just check out whatever seems fun.


File: 1629430404678.jpg (35.96 KB, 604x533, e4b2bbecdb8ef00b2dcdaeff42….jpg)

I definitely prefer manga, though I do consume more anime. Mangas just have so much more plot and detail, it feels carefully crafted and shaped. Both story wise and artistically.
Lately the mainstream animes we've been getting such as Jujustu Kaisen and Demon Slayer are so well adapted, it makes me happy!

Though I read Demon Slayer before it came out and it was so boring to watch because it was so well adapted (lol). It was literally the same thing as in the manga. No spice!


i prefer manga.

Currently I'm rewatching K, since a series of movies are being released recently. I also just finished rewatching Record of Lodoss War a few days ago.

I'm sorry I've been posting twice because I thought I could not post

I will introduce various things from Japanese books here, may I post it once a day


This sounds very interesting. Sadly I can't understand much Japanese.


do you have a PDF of this book?

Hello, I'm the translator of Patchy Illusion Team (a scanlation group composed of people from uboachan), and I've got some news. Although we've been translating Yume Nikki Doujinshi for a good while, we also started picking up other doujins that have been off the radar. As of now, we've got a few MOTHER3 books, please check them out:


There will be more in the future, although our main target will still be, of course, Yume Nikki and derivatives. I hope you enjoy them.
