>>13319482 There's something about Japanese society that is inherently perfectionist. It's hard to describe, but they have a degree of self-scrutiny and conscientiousness that's reflected in their artistic output. There's an attention to detail that westerners lack. Even when I browse pixiv I can easily guess the nationality of the artists, just by looking at the preview images. The ones drawn by westerners look like shit.
>>13319482 >I don't see shit in jap culture myself, only in "OTAKU CULTURE" This. I don't think I like your average Japanese person either just as I don't like your average American.
And I'd never want to live in Japan. There's a reason so many people are using escapism to ... escape it. I'm sure it's actually much easier to be an otaku in the west as opposed to a neo-Confucian society.
I actually think there is no better place to be an otaku, hikiki or NEET than in the US (especially granting you have autismbux on the last two).
China's economy finally bursts, their yuan is losing value and the people are starving. The Communist party, trying its best to protect its power over the chinese, directs all the hatred and problems of the chinese toward Japan, the so-called nemesis that tried to destroy China in the past. Japan immediately tries to fortify itself, knowing the US Army would take a while to respond to such a threat, especially with the potential nuclear exchange coming from China.
But lo and behold, from the seas come the "Otaku Battalion", volunteers from all the world going to help Japan war effort. Some cite their reason as protecting the Japanese people, some even say they want to "eroge"/porn game developers from Japan safe from harm. They brought all kinds of weapons approach, from fake katana to bolt action rifles like the Russian Mosin-nagant to modern sporting rifles such as AR15 or AR10. The japanese government at first wants to upheld the Sword & Firearm law, but seeing that more and more volunteers come and their own JSDF is lacking in warm bodies. From inside the country, the NEET, the shut-in and the netouyou finally leave their chamber, marching towards the JSDF recruitment station in order to "kill corean infiltrators and chinese dog-eaters". Despite the difference in physical and reason, all "otaku" try hard to protect Japan from the upcoming war and multiply the JSDF from a hundred thousand force to a million strong force.
A knack for innovation, a love for electronics, rarely half-assing their work (The ones that do, do not last long), not minding what goes on behind closed doors (so long as no one is harmed, or are too loud).
Of course I am aware it sucks to be an office worker in Japan and job pressure is ridiculous. But everywhere has its flaws (and I have no intention of being a salaryman whether in the states or anywhere I go)
>>13319579 And Japanese girls want foreigner boyfriend. It is amazing to me how easy it is for foreigner to get girl to have sex with. Maybe they also do not get serious relationship if they don't have money but Japanese girls really so much more likely to have sex and fooling around with Westerners it is driving us guys nuts.
>sleep with foreigner bad boy >then get married to Japanese rich nice guy Women in Japan are such fucking sluts. I wish I had a nice traditional white woman from America instead...
>>13319722 >>13319678 I really hate western art. The common sort of styles you see online (Disney ripoff, Total Drama Island ripoff, Adventure Time ripoff, western superhero comic sorta styles, etc) are so boring. Monkey see, monkey do, right? Hell, they can't even copy "anime" styles without it looking off and western, or do realism without injecting their western cartoon style in and making everything look awkward. Sometimes you'll find artists that do a good job but usually it's all low quality and awful.
It isn't much better if you go towards traditional art and exhibitions, it's still trash. I remember going to some Ghost In the Shell-inspired exhibition at the Tate Modern and it was bad. You could tell the artist had no idea what he was doing.
But Japanese/eastern artists manage to always make their works look good. Sure, same-face is a common thing but it isn't much of an issue in my opinion. Forcing uniqueness can be really obvious. But even the junk you see on Pixiv is on a higher level than the junk you see on deviantArt/Tumblr. Even if the artist infuses their cartoon style in with their realism it usually doesn't look awkward. Even if the anatomy is off, or they're minimalistic or whatever else, the illustrations are always warm and inviting. And then it isn't hard to find artists who know what they're doing and generally do a good job at illustrating. ゆうこ (ID: 187034)'s and げみ (ID: 396769)'s works instantly come to mind. They look so fantastic. One exhibition I would love to go to is ゆの's hallucinatic girls exhibit. The girls look really soft and the images in general are very visually pleasing.
>>13319482 When I was young, I noticed Japan designed all my electronics and favorite cars. Then I slowly grew into a larger faggot as times passed. They say going to Japan itself is supposed to be an eye-opener for dumb weebs but going there only reinforced my love of the country. Maybe it's because I didn't base my expectations on anime?
Have you ever been to America or any western country? One of my favorite things about the Japanese that you might take for granted is how efficient everyone is. No matter where I was in Japan, they always stood on one side of the escalator so people in a hurry can run up the other side. It took me a matter of minutes to get annoyed by people not doing this when I landed back in America. I hear it's different in larger cities, but I live in the country.
I'm a 27 year old Japanese Toonaholic (Cartoon fan for you foreigners). I draw cartoons and comics on my tablet, and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior American games. (Halo, Gears of War, Call of Duty)
I train with my 1911 every day, this superior weapon can shoot straight through steel because it kicks ass, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my gun license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.
I speak English fluently, both the Midwestern and the East Coast accents, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about American history and their Constitution, which I follow 100%
When I get my American visa, I am moving to New York to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Nickelodeon or a game designer!
I own several cowboy outfits, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to America, so I can fit in easier. I keep cool to my elders and seniors and speak English as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.
Nothing in particular. It's appealing because it's somewhat exotic (less so these days, traditional Japanese culture has been dying for a better part of 70 years now) and not entirely awful and there's more exposure to it than to Chinese or Korean or Vietnamese culture.
I was reading a lot of Lafcadio Hearn when I was younger, so that may be the reason.
>>13319722 I wish art was more valued and more encouraged in the west in general, I read that most Korean students have decent drawing from life abilities because they just practice at an early age in the school curriculum.
For one, how perfectionism and discipline are found all accross Japanese culture: from martial arts to Zen Buddhism to Ikebana and even just daily life at school or at work.
I also appreciate how (traditionally anyways) gender roles are very black & white and clear-cut, men are strong and women are kawaii.
I also appreciate the style of traditional architecture and there's something that is uniquely pleasant about Japanese music both modern and traditional, Japanese cuisine as well is unlike anything else in the world.
Oh, and of course anime and manga and video games and all that bullshit.
>>13324384 >Have you ever been to America or any western country? One of my favorite things about the Japanese that you might take for granted is how efficient everyone is.

>>13326209 The problem is that it shows a lack of discipline. How do people looking for directors/lead designers etc know you won't just get bored and leave/cease to do your best as soon as you hit your arbitrary "more than normal people" benchmark like you do with everything else you dabble in?
The sooner you find something productive that you feel that you can pour an unlimited amount of time into and never get bored, and hone that skill, the more opportunities you'll find are presented to you. Dabbling should be a means, not an end.
Also in terms of creative positions, as someone who also isn't particularly well off and black. If you have the mental capacity to use this website you know full well that you have free access to practically any creative outlet you can think of. It all starts with u anon
>>13327694 >It's like the equivalent of Americans not wiping their asshole after taking a shit and just putting their pants on directly. So, leaving muddy tracks with your shoes in your home is common practice, by that analogy?
>>13327904 Not only that, they get upset if you ask them to take them off. I want to say "bitch, this is my house, if you can't follow such a basic request then don't come in, just go home and go track shit on your own floor."
>>13327904 It depends on the household on the pace of living of its inhabitants. It's most common in the suburbs; people in cities often have carpeted apartments and in rural areas some houses actually have mudrooms for the express purpose of taking off boots and storing outerwear and tools.
The German above is just generally being a retard, though.
It's a pain in the ass to take your shoes off right at the door. Every American takes his shoes off inside, just not right at the door. If you have muddy shoes then you can take them off on the little tile entrance, otherwise why would you even bother?
Do people not take their shoes off in their home? Homes around here in America have a little entry way after the front door before you go into the house where you can put your shoes and coat in the closet. Also welcome mats are a thing.
I've never seen Americans make a big deal of Japs taking their shoes off but one can hardly go thorough any Jap thing that involves Americans without Japs obsessing over it "This is Japan so you take your shoes off inside." "Americans don't take off their shoes? EEEEH!?" and crazy shit like people sleeping in their bed with shoes on that I see in Japanese media(and in modeling images)
The only weird thing about it is that they do it at schools but as far as I've seen no where else. Why do it at school but not the office? Why don't teachers do it?
>>13327904 >>13331612 >>13327263 I live in Canada and most people never bother to take off their shoes, especially my family, they're just walk right from outside and walk up to the upstairs washroom where our bath & shower is and drag thier shit/dirt-covered heels all over the washroom floor.
It's especially bad during winter where they'll drag ice-cold slosh water all over and that shit soaks through my socks.
>>13332890 I'm Canadian too, and in the vast majority of houses I've gone to, I take off my shoes at the front just inside the door, unless the host specifically says not to bother. I know I personally wouldn't want people tracking dirt or water in the house.
>>13333170 Oh sure I do, but like I said my family is... something else... they'll walk around in the lovely springtime mix of dirt, melted snow, thawed dogshit and walk right past the doormat and walk right upstairs with their boots on to use the washroom - seemingly intentionally avoiding the downstairs washroom.
I A-L-W-A-Y-S take off my shoes/boots even if it's to quickly get a plastic bag or something from upstairs.
It's funny too because every few they'll be like "OH JEEZ LOUISE WHY IS THE FLOOR SO DIRTY" like somehow it was a ghost that dragged its boots all over the house.
1. Unless the family is very well-to-do, the garage serves as the antechamber. If the owner wants you to take off your shoes, you do so here. Also, large festivities are usually centered in the garage/dining room/living room, which are usually interconnected.
2. If there is no adjoining garage, you either leave the shoes at the door or wear them permanently. This area is either
3. If there is good carpet, only slippers and socks should be worn. If the house has good carpet everywhere, leave the shoes in the garage/opening. If the carpet is mediocre, it depends on the owner. Some houses have a linoleum partition surrounding the front door where shoes are generally discarded, but not always.
4. Linoleum, or any surface which is easily mopped/sweeped is fair game for shoes/sandals.
5. Time matters. If the stay is very short, there is no need to take off one's shoes. If the stay becomes longer, one may take them off arbitrarily at any point.
6. If you are entering the house on a matter of work, there is no need to take off one's shoes if they are relatively clean.
7. Most people have either two to four pairs of commonly-worn shoes. If they white-collar, one is a clean pair for work. At home, there is a pair for relatively clean, universal shoes for school, casual outings, and home, usually tennis shoes. For dirtier work, most people have a pair of boots, steel-toed or otherwise, which remain in the garage or near the door.
8. Sweeping is usually done when there are visible, raised balls of dust on the floor, unless you are classier than that.
9. Poorer folks usually just wear one of shoes, and wear them throughout the house/trailer indiscriminately.
I live in Newfoundland. Shoes are ALWAYS taken off in the porch when entering someone's home. Wearing my dirty-ass sneakers inside someone's kitchen would be about as insulting as picking my nose at the dinner table while they serve me dinner.
Maybe I'm being too serious in saying this, but I just want to see the country side of Japan. They have more ancient history to them than here, so I wouldn't mind visiting old buildings and various sites. I do not hear many people talk about this so I just keep it to myself, but I would be happy to see the traditional buildings and the traditional clothes and rituals that are done. I don't know if I would want to wear any of it or participate in it, but I would just mind myself and watch from the side.
But Japan is so far away, and I would have to take a week or so off of work, plan where to go and what to do, hope I don't get terribly lost and know what to do/not do when in Japan. I do have a friend of mine who lives just outside of Kyoto. She recommended it as being a place where you can get a mix of modern, and traditional Japan. And not too surprisingly, she does not have much respect for Americans since many come and either talk too loud or are completely oblivious to customs and stuff of the assort.
Yutaka-chan is a small girl from a village in the Japanese countryside. She is a tomboy and due to her appearance (short hair, flat loli chest, wearing t-shirts and shorts) she is often confused for a boy. However, when she goes to her aunt's place (or something) for the summer, she gets quite the growth spur. She is still the same old pure, innocent & naive tomboy, but her body... well, don't let me spoil it all for you.
>>13320751 >But everywhere has its flaws It's kind of funny how people quickly forget that with this kind of "why do you like XYZ?" questions. Obviously I'm going to have more issues with a society/culture I live in every day.
>>13338398 Naw, it's all about body type. Of course men are attracted to dumb chicks because they're easy to fool and fuck. Everyone would hop on Jennifer garner in 13 going on 30. No one really has a problem that your average 18 year old cum slut having the shit fucked out of her on camera for money has less sense than a 12 year old.
>>13320751 >>13343263 Focusing on web design for innovation is like focusing on sign painting for innovation. A company getting a new sign on its door every month only tells me they have a designer on staff with nothing better to do.
What about the products those enterprises actually make? Do they actually do anything innovative?
>>13343317 >when newer implementations are more cost and time effective I dunno, I've never found an infinite-scrolling slideshow more useful than a page with links. And given that the infinite-scrolling slideshow used three different frameworks measuring dozens of man-years of effort and the page of links took maybe four hours to set up from start to finish, I kind of doubt that applies.
>>13344060 There is also something incredibly erotic about being black in Japan and spreading your semen in a relatively homogeneous country like Japan. Whiteys do it all the time, sure, but their products are not as noticeable.
When a black man spreads his seed, it leaves a visible mark on the Japanese world that will never "wash" away.
>what do you guys see in Jap culture? The US and Japan are the only countries that produce high quality modern entertainment in large amounts.
Britain makes a few decent TV shows but there's like five episodes a season, they only have a handful of seasons, and there's huge gaps of time in between the seasons. Every other country is complete fucking garbage when it comes to producing entertainment.
>>13344194 >When a black man spreads his seed, it leaves a visible mark on the Japanese world that will never "wash" away. A negro/asian mutt is going to be completely ostracized and will almost definitely only reproduce with a foreigner, and then together they will create even less Japanese children and their children probably won't even live in Japan.
It's a disease that isolates itself and then leaves the country.
>>13344235 That's fine, but it just doesn't leave "a mark that will never wash away" because the mark it creates will literally fly away from the country within a generation or two. Only asian/white mutts are capable of permanently muddying asian blood because their offspring is passable enough that they won't be especially ostracized in Japan for being half white and so they will be able to reproduce within the country with a native and spread their mutt blood.
It's like a deadly and aggressive virus with a lot of terrible and extremely visible symptoms vs a deadly virus that doesn't have a lot of visible symptoms. The second will spread far more and cause far more damage because the first is so obvious that if you see someone with blood pouring out of their eyes then you don't get anywhere near them and people in hazmat suits lock them away within 5 minutes. Black/asian offspring sticks out so much that they will be relentlessly bullied and ostracized and probably will only be able to feel welcomed within foreign circles, so they're actually less of a threat in the long term.
This. In the West the mainstream culture is like "yeah, there are basement dwellers, they do weird things, they don't have relationships, they exist I guess". There's no real subculture about it, no markets targeting basement dwellers, we're all overlooked. In otaku culture we find fraternity and celebrate the way we live.
>>13319765 >SEAs like to pretend to be Japanese on the internet, you never know. I have to agree with this. I have no exact knowledge why would some people here act like it's as if they're japanese (well to be fair some people around the world do this too, not strictly only in SEA), but if i could guesstimate the most probable answer is because those people here feel that they're more related to the japanese and therefore they think that they're more entitled than the others since they share something in common like the school system, asian culture, foods, consumer products, etc.
Japan is also the biggest investor for some ASEAN countries like Thailand or Indonesia.
You could connect the rest of the dots by yourself.
>>13321925 Western artists have no discipline. They generally don't put in the hours necessary to hone their skills and develop a decent style. In general, they only draw as a hobby, and maybe once a month if at all. Japanese artists are usually perfectionists, so they will keep practicing until they are at a level to show others their own work, especially if they are professional.
Rich traditional culture a little bit based on Chinese meems. The reason I like Japanese culture is because of certain cultural ideaologies and practices like Shinto Buddhism.(Washing of hands, Samurai Practices, Maiko Girl)
>>13319482 I'd say it's the fascination of the unknown. I'm an Eurofag and I don't think that it'd be vastly different if I'd go to the US. Not wanting to piss the muricans here off, but their basic culture is European and no matter how they evolved their own culture and shits, it still is not that different. Japan on the other hand is just... foreign. I'd get one hell of a culture clash if I'd visit it .
>>13344378 Don't missunderstand me,you are right to some extend but some /tg/ people are literally "normal" (proper social life / gf / whatever). I know a few people who actually play dnd and they sure as hell arent basement dwellers,get what I mean?
>>13320936 >implying Japanese girls what smelly otaku gaijin I really wish howaito piggu gaijin would stop spreading this myth. Is this how one copes with virginity? The false delusions that you'd have a harem in Japan? They don't want you anymore than the girls in your country do.
>>13358715 How about you go back to tumblr instead?
>>13358723 You must be really fucking deluded if you actually don't think that it's true.
There are tens of thousands of girls, good looking ones too in Japan who will date you simply because you are a gaijin (preferably white, but there are literally girls who dream about going to America because they want to date a real 100% ghetto nigga).
If you actually bothered to listen to people who live in Japan instead of clinging to your desperate weaboo dreams, you'd know it's true. It's not only coming from some lying little shit YouTube celebrity wannabes but actual old people who have no reason to make this up (and they advise you against those types of people because they are only interested in you because you're a foreigner).
Once again - the Japanese girls desiring ugly gaijin semen is the same as white girls in America having yellow fever. Except Japanese girls care even less about your looks and all you need is to be a foreigner, have basic social skills and if fat be just normal World fat, not American fat.
>>13358756 They objectively do. She wouldn't have got it if Japanese people didn't like her. For every person that doesn't there's hordes who love her. There's also a popular Japanese singer with the same mix as her. Stay salty.
>>13358797 Except it isn't. It is a picture of you. Just because you are so fucking ugly and have 0 self-esteem doesn't mean that normal unattractive people don't benefit from the Japanese gaijin fever.
>>13358806 >According to my 95% English speaking gaijin forum any otaku pig can have a harem if only they could move to Japan >That explains why I'm a virgin. Women in my country SUCK! Lol! >Himiko-sensei is waiting for me >Japan, ikimasu!!
>>13358821 See, that's where you're wrong, you pathetic strawmanning retard.
I mean, how much do you have to delude yourself to keep on going?
Do you think that yellow fever in America is a myth too?
It has absolutely nothing to do with "english speaking forums". You can go to any channel with some old ugly fuck who's been farting in Japan for 10-20 years and they can tell you that this is a normal fact of life in Japan.
How hard it is to grasp for your autistic projecting fedora tipping feminist-ally brain? I never said that the Jap sluts like *you*. Nobody in the world will ever like you in particular. What they like is foreigner. They don't give a shit about your personality or your ability to respectfully nod towards them or your degree in Womyn's Studies. You are a foreigner - that's all they need to know.
>It has absolutely nothing to do with "english speaking forums". You can go to any channel with some old ugly fuck who's been farting in Japan for 10-20 years and they can tell you that this is a normal fact of life in Japan. You've mentioned this 20 times. Let me guess. You watched Ryan Boundless, an old sexually unsuccessive pedophile, and actually believe that you'd lose your virginity if you could just go to Japan? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.
Newsflash: the men of every country say this about the women of other countries. It's not the women in your country being "no good". It's not the women in other countries secretly waiting for you all along. It's just you. You're the reason you're a virgin.
This has absolutely nothing to do with feminism and trying to randomly shit on that just reaffirms how much of a neckbeard with a delusional complex you are.
>Himiko-sensei is waiting for me to help me manage my harem that I'll get after I finally move to Japan and lose my virginity >Japan, ikimasu!!
>>13358870 >he namedrops his favorite Japaense YouTuber celebrity >whom he watches for some reason despite calling him a pedophile
>Newsflash: the men of every country say this about the women of other countries Again, deluded autistic sperglord. This has nothing to do about countries. It is about R A C E.
>This has absolutely nothing to do with feminism Yes it does. You clearly identify as a feminist and you keep arguing against the concept of reverse yellow fever. Because it triggers your Womyn's Studies degree.
Also, filtered another MD5. Get some fresh stuff Beta male.
>>13358870 Also it goes even beyond just having sex.
In China, in example, whites can get a job in high profile companies JUST FOR BEING WHITE because the unscrupulous Ching Chong gives exactly 0 shit about your SocJus mentality and if having a white person standing in your shop to attract customers (and doing literally nothing else than just being there) increases your sales, they will hire whites for the job no problem.
Literally this entire thread you've been doing nothing but projecting your own virginity and insecurity and strawmanning. All this because you're frustrated that your Womyn's Studies degree is worth even less than a degree in English.
These japs are cowards, They hide in Caves, In trees, under rocks. If we have to burn every cave,Bomb every tree, turn over every rock. We will kill every last one of them,And PUSH THEM BACK TO TOKIO!'
>>13358895 >>13358913 >he namedrops his Mad because I figured out your "source"? You're as pathetic as you come across if it's really true. >Again, deluded autistic sperglord.

You clearly identify as a feminist and you keep arguing against the concept of reverse yellow fever. Because it triggers your Womyn's Studies degree. What does the delusionals of neckbeard gaijin pigs thinking they wouldn't be losers if they could move to Japan have to do with feminism?
You float well in salt baths, but I'm afraid it's beginning to make you retarded. Try to be more logical.
>>13358944 >Mad because I figured out your "source"? No you didn't. I watch someone else. The guy you're subscribed to keep bitching and crying about how he will never be accepted as a Japanese person over and over again. It explains why you think that Japs hate Westerners.
>Newsflash: the men of every country say this about the women of other countries. Again, deluded autistic sperglord. This has nothing to do about countries. It is about R A C E.
>What does the delusionals of neckbeard gaijin pigs thinking they wouldn't be losers if they could move to Japan have to do with feminism? I can't exactly comprehend what you're trying to say with this, since your mentality is clearly deteriorating as your Tumblr rage increases, but the point is that you are literally completely without arguments and just repeating the same shit over and over again because the truth of the world (that RACE MATTERS) conflicts with what you were taught in your precious Gender Studies.
Also if you want me to keep reading your shitposts, post them here >>13358948.
I'm not gonna waste my time blowing the fuck out of some magina Beta cuck without an audience to watch that.
>>13358963 >No you didn't. I watch someone else. Denying that your pathetic "source" got exposed? I'm still laughing. I guess a neckbeard with nothing to lose will believe anything, eh?
>Again, deluded autistic sperglord. This has nothing to do about countries. It is about R A C E. Newsflash: the men of every country say this about the women of other countries.

>I can't exactly comprehend what you're trying to say with this "la la la I can't hearrrrr you" Mmmm. Neckbeard tears. Do you always retreat back to your mental echo chamber when you get blown the fuck out by facts? >clearly deteriorating as your Tumblr rage increase Implying if you're not pol you're tumblr. Sasuga pol. Can't even logic. No wonder everyone routinely shits on you for being cancer. >I'm not gonna waste my time blowing the fuck Yes, you did get blown the fuck out. That's why you're retreating now. Take your bronze medal like the pathetic neckbeard you are and walk it off.
