Why are the Japanese so autistic about the depiction of underage drinking?
10 times out of 10, if alcohol is being offered to characters, they'll refuse saying how they're underage, as if Japan will sink into the sea if they did.
Or, they will be depicted drinking what appears to be beer or champagne or what have you, only to later make a point to explain that it is either only juice or non-alcoholic variants.
Why is a naked bathing loli whose genitals/nipples are lazily obscured by "steam" perfectly fine, but may God have mercy on your soul if a 19 year old takes a sip of Zema?
Is it a legality thing? Like, it's illegal to depict underage drinking in Japan?
>you will never get a bunch of anime school girls drunk off chocolates
I'm just waking up for some blunts, whiskey, and cute girls doing cute things.
Started at 0830 for me. Neet life baby.
Anime doesn't want to show the real life of teenagers, because (as you may remember) it consists manly of going crazy on hormones.
If they would start showing teenagers drinking , then all the basement losers watching it would be reminded how much they missed out. Especially on that teen prime pussy that followed most drinking at parties.
>cumming within a minute
>remembering only half of what happened
>getting puked on
>waking up with a headache
>you had sex with the wrong girl
Really great stuff.
Anime shows you high school romances, harems, cute girls doing cute things, all the stuff that basement losers missed out on. Drinking wouldn't be that big a deal on top of that.
Don't nips drink alcohol or have parties in high school at all?
I had that planned today myself and the minute I finished packing my vape my work called in and said they needed me.
I just wanted to watch cute girls doing cute things today ;_;
Different cultural standards. The naked children thing is probably because they don't sexualize children as much as the West, don't forget that lolicon is very niche and not accepted over there.
>Is it a legality thing? Like, it's illegal to depict underage drinking in Japan?
Yes, it's actually illegal. They always make it really obvious because they're making a joke about it/covering their asses legally.
It really is and odd thing to get hung up on considering everything else they get away with. They consider pandering to pedophiles and appropriate business model but underage drinking is illegal.
>don't forget that lolicon is very niche and not accepted over there
Hahaha oh man please dont tell me your serious
>mfw it's legal to drink at 18 here
>mfw teens drink & zero fucks are given as long as they do it "responsibly"
Child porn sadly up until a few years ago was legal in japan. They only recently banned it but if I recall only banning them from further promoting it. Lolicons are the least of anyones worrys because due to the 3D pig disgusting and oversexualization, I'd say theyre highly less likely to be a problem.
Besides most anime lolis don't even come close to what a real child would look like.
>Why are the Japanese so autistic about the depiction of underage drinking?
Why are the Japanese so autistic about the depiction of omega males who can't get past rational courage?
Do you not understand that it's just a common joke? It's supposed to be funny when people follow all the stereotypes of a drunkard when they've just been drinking orange juice or something. Plus it's an easy way to get them to act stupid/do something perverted/pass out.
Lolicon is even legal in the states dispite what rednecks and christfags would have you believe. The problem with a law being passed on it is the fact that its fictitious and theyre just lewd drawings. The article I read on it supporting this fact that by banning something like that is almost as bad as thought policing. It can't really be done especially with the anime/manga ind vidya industry in japan and culture as it is now.
Child porn involves an actual child.
Lolicon involves an an artist with pen and paper drawing lewd pics when it comes down to it.
And yet they passed a law against underage drinking in anime. That is of course assuming its true. It's been a long time since I heard that and I don't actually have a source. Its just seems odd that lawmakers with bother with one but not the other.
Remember that not all otaku are shitty NEET basement dwellers like you, they're different from western secondhand faggots. Also, there's a fucking business there with companies, lawyers and shit.
It doesn't. The cat just try to keep getting to the top but it never does. It keeps running and running and running. It knows it's futile but it keeps going because it validates itself on how much it does instead of the progress it makes.
Sounds like bullshit to me. It might be a regulation but I laws are not=regulations.
It's absolutely retarded when you see delinquents doing it. I remember one scene in Air Gear, with some rowdy, gang-affiliated punks unironically telling their teacher "Oh no, Mister Sensei, of course we're not gonna drink, we're not 21 yet". I mean, really?
I drink very rarely, if it counts.
The law also covers live action, you can't show underage drinking at all on TV. But for some reason it is OK in manga and novels, some years ago in Index we had Touma (16) going on a drunken rampage and in Negima we had Negi (10) getting shitfaced with sake.
Japan is weird.
Can I love twintails and still be a good person, anon?
The law also covers live action, you can't show underage drinking at all on TV
Not OP but this explains everything. Of course it would be excepted or at least passed without anyone noticing.
Nobody gives a fuck about TV anymore these days anyways.
Besides if you want to see it uncensored buy the Blurays/dvds.
>shigatsu wa kimi no uso
>multiple times shows two peole riding a bike
>characters in the show specifically mention it's illegal every time while doing it
>warning messages pop up over the screen
>end card has another reminder that it's illegal
>Naked people are just depicting nature, how God intended.
Then why can't they show pussy\cocks and nipples on TV ?
We're all anonymous here, anon. You can tell me.
I was thinking it'd be something along the lines of /k/atfucker or tilelo/v/er.
It's quite the opposite of what people here seem to think. While indeed the laws there seem to be strict, underage drinking Japan is not rare and is not a big deal, and it's really easy to obtain alcohol there and you can easily get way with it if you got caught.
>humans are inherently degenerate because of Original Sin
No, the Japs have it right on this one. Original Sin is just a system of control that was foisted upon us by the Romans in their final days of European conquest.
I hate how characters have one drink and they're stumbling and slurring every word.
It's very rare you get a person that lightweight.
>Why are the Japanese so autistic about the depiction of underage drinking?
Because underage drinking is a serious thing, idiot. Japan probably has a different drinking culture than the West, where teen binge drinking is "so kewl xDDD" (then again, there's salaryman binge drinking which is only marginally less bad).
Seriously, why the fuck do you want to see teen drinking so bad?
That occurred to me the other day when I was watching KnK. I really like the series, but it's difficult to take seriously when they're trying to make it a plot point that a combination of acid and weed will make you as murderous as Shiki. When I smoke, I get lethargic as fuck - if they had toned it down a bit and done a Me!Me!Me! level drug trip sequence, it would've been so much more enjoyable.
There's laws against depicting underage drinking in TV. Also culturally, underage drinking doesn't have that 'cool adventure' vibe as it has in the US, and as >>122140862
pointed, it's illegal but really not that big deal. So it really doesn't add anything to the anime unless, like your picture and pic related (it reads 'non-alcoholic' on the bottle), it's added for comical relief, and since the contrast and the exaggeration of the anime character getting drunk from something non alcoholic beverage only adds to the humor, there's just no need to go against the law.
>It will be banned before 2020 for the Olympics.
you mean manga shops will just self-sensor for 2 weeks by not stocking lolis and gays for display on the shelves until gaijin leaves.
But they are. Legislation is how regulations are MADE. What do you think a regulation is, someone just decides to pull a rule out of their ass and everyone has to follow it "just because"?
Adding to >>122141634
>Despite the law prohibiting underage drinking, around 50% of junior high school and 70% of
senior high school students reported some experience with alcohol
Which are endowed with their powers by the legislative body. Said regulations are enforced by the executive body, because "regulations" in this context is shorthand for "legal regulations".
you're slowly killing yourself simply by living.
The chocolate liqueur part in Hyouka will always annoy me for that so fucking retarded.
That's true I guess.
It's not even nice either, Why do people drink stuff that tastes revolting?
Okay. Thanks for the rundown of third grade social studies. Judging by the fact that what you said in no way asserts that regulations are legislation, I'm going to assume you've dropped the point of contention.
Non-USian here, it's not a matter of cool to me (I think it's ridiculous too), it's more about what I wrote in >>122140547. There are some situations where it's just ridiculous to have them say "oh no, we're law abiding teenagers, we don't drink". It's in-your-face, immersion-breaking censorship.
It's an acquired taste, kinda like black coffee.
>it's difficult to take seriously when they're trying to make it a plot point that a combination of acid and weed will make you as murderous as Shiki
Did you miss the part at the beginning when Mikiya did those two things willingly?
Ever think there was something different about Lio's superdrug?
I don't think the problem is that they don't allow it I think the problem is they constantly have to have a situation where the character is offered a drink and they refuse and say they're underage. What is even the point of that scene taking place? It has always seemed bizarre to me. They're obviously not going to show underage drinking but yet for some reason they need to remind the audience that the MC is underage as if they already didn't know. Why have it at all?
Yes. This however does not mean that they are made legislation, as only the regulatory BODY and not the members within it are endowed with regulatory powers. Thus, regulations can be changed at the will of the body without the mandate of the polity, which, along with the restricted breadth of society that they regulate, distinguish them from legislation, and the legislative branch of government.
In addition, such regulations are ultimately beholden to prior legislation in their legality, and are not completely restructured with every change in the executive or legislative, e.g. after a general/presidential election, as regulatory bodies are a part of the governmental civil service.
tl;dr you're a retard
No. You can drink sugary faggot drinks if you want. That way it'll taste good from the first time you drink it.
Your body doesn't react negatively to alcohol at all, as long as you drink in moderation.
>yeah but regardless hatsune miku will sing every countrys national anthem.
and the live performances will be performed by all 138 members of the group called AKB-48 !
pick related - I think this is all 138 of them
I'm not sure what you're so victorious about, the original idiot said that "laws are not =regulations", which for some stupid reason caused you to assume that he meant "regulations are not legislation". Regulations are laws, as is legislation.
If you follow the conversation, you can easily tell that he's using "laws" as a layman's term for legislation. You also had no problem with this fact previously and argued that regulations are legilsation. After being proven wrong, you spouted some of your tangentially related elementary school government knowledge. Now you're trying to move the goalposts and completely change the original argument. Why do you want to right on 4chan so badly?
>Hurr why can't other countries have the same culture like mine this is bullshit Durrr
Wait, I see where the problem started. When I said "but they are" I meant "regulations are laws" contrary to the guy you were defending, and you took it as me saying "regulations are legislation" because I wasn't clear enough.
The characters in One Piece drink like all the fucking time and most of them, including the most notorious drunk out of the main cast, was below the legal age in Japan. Luffy also had his first drink when he was like 6.
Not really seeing it. Maybe it's just for stuff set in modern era/modern era equivalents.
Depends on what you think is nice.
I really like the taste of some dark beers while I generally can't stand sweeter drinks due to the unpleasant burn that comes with a lot of them.
>What is even the point of that scene taking place?
It's usually the fun loving/sleazy older characters offering a drink and meant to show a part of them rather than the one being offered a drink e.g. a tipsy Christmas cake teacher trying to offer a student a drink and he deadpans he's underage.
If I'm remembering correctly, the 21+ drinking age isn't a federal law or guideline, it's a thing that all the states follow and it's adoption by the states had something to do with road funding.
Kind of like the 65MPH speed limit that most states have on roads. That's an Environmental Protection Agency guideline that would get the states federal funding for their roads if they adopted it (and most did).
I don't drink period for the same reason as >>122140641
Loose lips sink ships and all that. The idea of not being in total control of my behavior weirds me right the fuck out.
I'm perfectly fine with others drinking though.
I thought minors are generally allowed to drink, as long as they're accompanied by a parent or guardian. Or is it just where I live?
I remember a scene in Mai-HiME with Mikoto (who IIRC is middle school age) saying that she *used* to get drunk with her grandfather, years ago.
>Besides most anime lolis don't even come close to what a real child would look like.
It'd be more accurate to say
>Besides most real children don't even come close to what a loli looks like.
Since most lolis very much look like real older preteen girls, just with hyper exaggerated faces.
Also there is no logical reason for why possession of CP should be illegal, if creation and distribution are illegal.
Because it makes it more ridiculous, and sometimes downright stupid.
It's always done in a whacky, silly way that isn't actually funny at all, there are few times when it's done well enough that it isn't an hindrance to the show.
Anime is objectively better when drunk.
or at least more emotional
I just came here to remind everyone that if you have consumed even a drop of alcohol or done any drugs within the last 365 days you are beyond the shadow of any doubt a bonafide normalfag.
Your normalfag status is non-negotiable at this time, no excuses or exceptions. Please come back in 1 year to be re-evaluated.
Have a nice day
A guy from my class back in high school was from an extremely religious family. So while the rest of us were happily drinking since the tender age of 14, as is customary in my country, he always refused to drink. On his 18th birthday, me and another classmate convinced him to go to a bar with us to celebrate. He drank one shot of brandy and he was literally drunk off of it. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.
It was pretty surreal. We got him to have a couple more shots but then he couldn't take anymore and left to go home. He puked all over his bed and got himself grounded for a month. Poor guy.
Well I'd probably specify by saying:
Creating porn with an individual under the age of consent should always be illegal, as you are by law doing so without their consent.
Distributing material as described above for financial benefit should be harshly punished as you're making money off of someone else's victimhood.
Distributing material as described above for free should be illegal but less harshly punished as you are still spreading it.
Purchasing material as described above should be illegal and moderately harshly punished as you are benefiting the creators and/or distributors of such material as well as fueling it's creation.
Acquiring such material for free should not be punished beyond such material posibly being taken away from the person possessing it as such a person is not in any way benefiting the creator/distributor.
I would assume given that underage drinking is seen in a few works set outside of Japan in a clear fantasy environment and in Manga and Light novels set in Japan underage drinking does occur that isn't transferred over to anime adaptations that the TV Networks or more likely the sponsors don't want to be seen promoting it.
It would probably be slightly more genuine if they actually just didn't focus on it at all. It is a bit odd though, especially coming from a British perspective were 90% of our shows starring young people doing young people things are quite realistic and show copious alcohol consumption
Straight Edgeness is the state of entry level NEETs, just like obsessing over Tomoko or Welcome to the NHK is. Come back in some five years and then we'll see if you still avoid alcohol.
No one would behave like they do in the situations you see, absolutely no one.

I remember Rock Lee in Naruto getting drunk and he's a master of the Drunken Fist. mfw in the dub he doesn't drink sake, but "elixir".
15:45 here. Drank a beer and had a nap earlier, after a range trip. I can usually hold off till around 1700 though.
Do you seriously think all cp is paid for? There doesn't have to be a financial motivator. People don't upload amateur porn because they want big bux, they upload it because they want people to see them fucking.
Every time I see this argument all I can think is that the guy writing it doesn't want to get busted for what's on his hd.
I can see how a person might argue that liquor or beer are acquired tastes (in the same way carbonated drinks are), but that doesn't apply to wine, surely? I mean, unless you're drinking incredibly cheap wine, it shouldn't taste "bad" on its own.
My memory's a little fuzzy, but I don't think they actually showed her drinking. They showed her drunk, and sake bottles about the place, but not her actually drinking. I think. Maybe.
Ignoring the guy you were talking to the most important reason that it shouldn't be illegal is because it hinders people from reporting it.
Walk into a police station with some evidence of child porn and it will be you who will be put in jail. The law is zero tolerance, it doesn't matter what you intend to use it for only that you possess it.
Then you should factor in all the teenagers taking/having nude selfies and getting slammed with CP felonies.
It's a witch hunt.
>Alcohol is for looser.
You're right, it does loosen the inhibitions.
Lower alcohol content (5%) wine tastes like sweet juice. There wouldn't be a person on the planet that would like fruit juice but not like that.
The traditional stuff (>10%) is harder on sensitive taste buds.
Teafags are the only people more obnoxious than stoners.
Which is especially hilarious since tea is the most entry level drink out there. Even coffee is more of an acquired taste.
>The law is zero tolerance
I agree that this should be worked around. I don't think wholesale ownership should be legal, but having thumbnails and such on your PC, or accidentally downloading something and reporting it should definitely not net you jailtime. iirc there was a state that implemented some law like that.
>Then you should factor in all the teenagers taking/having nude selfies and getting slammed with CP felonies.
Teaches them a nice lesson about not putting shit on the internet. Yes, I know that's me being petty about it.
What about the fact that actual instances of child molestation crashed when possession of cp was made legal in Denmark https://web.archive.org/web/20140408173617/http://www.scireview.de/pj/sexualverbrechen.html

Consider this: in Japan it is not that uncommon to find vending machines containing beer and other alcoholic beverages in public and unattended that don't even require the card that cigarette machines do to verify age.
Now imagine this in your country.

I used to dislike drinking beer and avoided it for years, preferring to drink liquor or wine, but then in my final year of high school we had to go run 1.5km during PE class on an extremely sunny day.
It was the last class of the day, and when it was over a classmate suggested we all go for a beer. I didn't want to be a fag and be the only one who orders something else, so I also ordered a beer. Drinking a cool beer after an exhausting physical activity on a hot day was one of the most satisfying moments of my life, and I liked beer ever since.
I almost lost my shit when I got to my hotel and there was a beer vending machine.
First thought was "This shit would never fly in America. Kids would unload their piggy banks."
Here you can only acquire drinks this strong in a handful of locations and you have to sign a waver that you're using it as paint thinner or something like that.
Mix 1 part vodka to 5 parts whatever the fuck you want to drink.
Most are 5%, they are beer after all. This is 9%, not that commonly in machines.
Hotel vending machines also tend to have sake, shochu and whiskey in them ranging from 15~30%+, still nothing stopping anyone from using them.
Wine is pointless unless you're eating with a steak or at a high class and want to appear sophisticated.
If you try and get drunk on it, people look at you weird when you've finished the 5th bottle by yourself. It's a bad idea to drink wine in general unless it looks nice on your shelf or you want to give it as a gift.
Overprized shit. Earlier I saw a bottle of japanese whiskey for 1000 fucking swiss franks. Substract the 30% or so that's been added because it's Switzerland and you are still at 700 CHF
>If you try and get drunk on it, people look at you weird when you've finished the 5th bottle by yourself.
I guess we have had different experiences with wine.
It usually takes me six (~3l) beers to get tipsy and over 10 (~5l) to get drunk, while one (1l) bottle of (cheap) wine is enough to get me tipsy and by the time I drink my third (~3l) I'm already drunk.
Orange juice and vodka is great if you're a pussy that hates the taste of alcohol but wants to get drunk. Alternatively, mix cheap wine with cola.
If you don't have any friends it's pointless to go drinking in a bar unless you're desperate to pretend to your family you have a social life. It's much cheaper, convenient and more satisfying to just buy the drinks in a store and then drink it at home while watching anime.
After all, I remember it was a japanese whiskey that was nominated for best whiskey of the year in 2014 if I remember well.
I should still have the bottle somewhere, but that was god-tier.
Still, it tells something about you when your only christmas present from your family is alcohol.
>It's not the only cliche in anime though.
>And it mostly doesn't affect any plot at all.
Yeah but when the setting isn't Japan it feels really childish to do this.
Hmm, that's true.
I've noticed that I pee less if I drink wine compared to beer or whiskey. Vodka is still better since I can just get half drunk with two bottles and be happy in the night.
''You have to sip and cult the wine in your mouth while letting it digest under your tongue''.
Fuck that whole slow drinking bullshit with wine, it really gets annoying how people with class treat wine with absolute respect, especially the more expensive it gets.
I just get bored and drink the whole wine without chugging it. But nooo, you just have to respect it at every single sip and mouth movement.
Pffft, water is for pussies who don't drink.

You're a pussy if you don't play chicken with trains and go skydiving without a parachute.
Water is the most delicious drink, the most refreshing, goes with fucking everything, and costs basically nothing. Drinking anything else frequently just makes you a fucking idiot.
>5 bottles to get drunk
Nigga, it takes me like one bottle to get slightly drunk. Plus, you can't really drink 7.5+ liters of wine. Took my father 2 bottles to start saying shit, 3 to be downright retarded, and then the whiskey finally closes in for a kill.
But yeah wine is to drink with a good meal. red wine anyway.
>But nooo, you just have to respect it at every single sip and mouth movement.
Well, yeah, that's what you do when you're not a total pleb/slav in the matter of alcohol. If you're just searching for a way to get drunk fast and easy then of course it's not the way to go.
Water is shit.
I once drank a combo or rum, whiskey, a few zombie and two bottles of Belvedere to see how my stomach would handle multiple drinks together. A friend suggest that I drink a bit of water to cool it down so that I wouldn't have a hang over the next morning. And a few minutes later I was puking the damn water.
It's the worst shit to drink unless you're going /fit/.
>Bland is good guys, honest!
I don't mean to say you should exaggerate and go past your limits; learn them, obviously, but when you stay at home, bitching at people who travel the world and pretend you know better, don't expect me to take you seriously.
Water, fuck that shit.
Maybe I'm just talking for myself because I never get any hangovers no matter how hard I drink.
too bad i'm neither, they simply see beta faggot and expect empathy from fellow wageslave / free drinks.
>You're a pussy if you don't play chicken with trains
We did this as children until one day the cops came and sacked us all. I begged them to leave me alone, that my parents would beat me a great deal...they were merciless and still brought me home. However, they came back after an hour or so looking whether I've really been beaten by my parents.
Sadly, my parents were not dumb and waited until late in the night to fulfill their dirty deeds.
And if you drink that shit, you're retarded.
Here in reality, water is magically filled with dissolved minerals and other shit that adds flavor.
Unless you're boiling water and drinking the purified run-off like an insane man.
you fucking piece of shit. whenever i see these scenes i get so fucking angry. fucking disgusting piece of shit scenes i wish i could beat the living shit out of the people who think those scenes are good. shiot fuck nifggreh
For now, the only poison I need is pizza and sundaes.
To all those people who think water is shit: you've been drinking it wrong all these years. Protip, water is best enjoyed at ROOM TEMPERATURE. Not cold. Cold water tastes like fucking ass. But room temperature water is the most refreshing beverage on the planet.
>Nigga, it takes me like one bottle to get slightly drunk.
Seriously? What the fuck. That's barely enough to get me buzzed.
I wonder how it feels to get drunk with one bottle.
But everyone pays the good wine for me so I don't care. Though you do feel the quality and taste of very expensive wine. That's when I respect it because you can actually taste it and when you do curl it under your tongue slowly, you taste how good it is.
But the problem lies with respecting a good wine and just wanting to get drunk off of it.
I can't find the good balance.
I either respect the wine and drink it slowly live I've been told and don't get drunk, or drink a lot of it and hope it gets me buzzed.
>a movie about a wine writer
What a fucking joke.
Ice cold water is delicious, you fucking pleb.
Anyone who thinks water tastes like shit is just an idiot who thinks that sugar is stuff you drink after 20+ years of drinking nothing but sugar. Quit soda for a week, and you'll quickly understand why water is the best drink on earth, and it's not for any healthy bullshit reasons.

Get it together. Although the blogging in here is certainly too much, off-topic-threads and people who aren't total shut-ins have been here for years and years, if not from the beginning. While I'm not gonna start arguing what about this is bad, you can't possibly think that this is a new phenomenon.
I'm talking about shit you drink your water out of. If you don't have at least a 1 litre bottle on your desk right now, you don't know shit about drinking.
If you buy water in a glass bottle, you're a fucking idiot.
Wish I wasn't poor so I could get another bottle of this.
You realize that filters are pretty much scams, right? Unless you test your water, find out that it has an excessive amount of something, and then buy a filter specifically made for that mineral or whatever, then your filter is literally pointless.
You're a literal fucking retard. Tap water is pretty much universally improved by a basic charcoal filter unless your pipes are godly. In countries with any metal piping, it's an absolute necessity to remove metal ions.
A filter costs a few bucks for half a year of water.
