I especially love americans who literally flip out when you state a fact contradicting their small worldviews.

So, the main problem would be having to learn a completely new set of symbols, eh? I kinda expect that to be a challenge. But the worst part would be the fact that I have absolutely nobody to talk to in Japanese, I mean, it will be kinda difficult to even find a good language school in my vicinity which would have Japanese in their offer. So people tend to discourage me from trying (I kinda see their point, I mean, the only time I had to do with Japanese was in anime/manga, so chances are I won't even have an opportunity to put my skills to use).

believe it or not I'm walkin on air they actually have some programs online where you can speak to native speakers. It's not the same naturally but it really helps. In the end the best way to get a grip on it is to simply settle in the society. Before I came to America I spoke ok English, but after at least a year it got better and better. Japanese was the same, I started really learning it when I was set in the society. It's very scary at first and at times a little too much but you soon get comfortable as you settle into how people live. Open mindedness is the key.

So it is possible, then?

I was kinda afraid after our last conversation (the one about how they divide classes in English and how it's dictated by the complexity of Japanese)

I don't know anyone who uses Japanese, does anime count?

Ps. I see kids call you a 'weeaboo' too... oh, the irony <3

I know aren't fj kids great? I know it sounds over bearing when you hear it's two classes but honestly it's not as black as all that especially when getting a grip on the speaking part isn't that difficult. Writing is a bit of a challenge though I will not lie BUT only because things translate into writing differently. Russian can be the same in the sense that two symbols can make up three or four words depending on when your using them, in what context, and who your using them to. You can also have situations where you may have two symbols that make up the word "police station" but then you take away one symbol and it suddenly becomes "mountain side" it seems very complicated but it all starts to make more sense with practice.

Oh, and btw, I just noticed your comment about dakimakuras (the body pillows) and the loli/lolicons.

Just wanted to clear up, the term loli is misused on every occasion now. It actually refers to the 'small body frame' and can be used in reference to adults, of course. Also, in anime there are often characters which seem underage, but are actually of legal age. The term 'loli' is also connected to a dressing style (and it's absolutely not something a child would wear, believe me...). I don't know why it bugs me when people associate loli with pedophilia (which is totally gross, absolutely disgusting and omg kill it with fire). Because... it doesn't have any relevance, right?

That's what I noticed, at least. I haven't been to Japan, so I'm not an expert.
#51 to #50 - bizengaust (08/20/2014) [-]
My knowledge of the subject is actually very limited. The only time I've been exposed to it is when I see it in anime stores  my cousin loves anime so I send her stuff often  or when I see people cosplaying. I did have some prior knowledge to lolita fashion since it's actually a retro fashion trend in Russia  although it's not as popular as dolls are associated with being stupid and empty headed . When I came to Japan I was actually very interested in girls dressing in Lolita fashion. I'm a sucker for Victorian era dress or anything so that sort of thing was right up my ally. I cannot lie though, when I first saw grown men fawning over underage girls I was very unsettled. I think part of this was because 1.) I've had times when I tutor junior high and I've had to call the cops because grow men were harassing my students and 2.) Because I just didn't understand the culture.   
I've since learned a ton about the fascination with &quot;cute culture&quot; and the fact that the age of consent is very different  it's 13 for anything that isn't intercourse which is 18 but you can get married at 16. It's very sticky business     
Since I come from a culture were sexual violence is a big issue I do get a little freaked out but in learning the culture I'm starting to see that It's not all associate with pedophilia. After all, the story Lolita wasn't about that sort of thing at all either. It was simply about a man trying to relive the memory of someone he lost in his youth  I get angry when people associate that story with him being a pedophile to. I feel like their missing the bigger picture.

#52 to #51 - bestfoxgirl (08/20/2014) [-]
Well, grown men fawning over underage girls is a totally disgusting, inhumane act which doesn't really have anything to do with liking 'loli', right? Cause, you know, in many 'loli' cases the girls are actually adult, or sometimes even ancient (when it comes to mythical creatures, etc. Picture related to that btw) only looking young (or 'petite' as some people call it). Grown men harassing your students? Was it back in Russia or in US? I know that US has a big problem with that one, I mean, you know about US and the crime rate. They're all ****** up degenerates who don't understand the concept of morality (I've had some unpleasant experiences with them, not only their manners are pitiful, they're also very noisy and rude).

Actually, the age of consent in Japan was a mystery to me. 13 seems like too little for me, and intercourse at 18 is a bit... unrealistic in nowadays societies. Of course I know that Japanese are far more moral when it comes to relationships and don't start their sexual lives at 15 like most western kids (I'd love it if more societies took example from Japanese, the 'Sleeping in one house? But we're only in highschool!' lines are just too cute. Totally not like the moral failure of the US and a good deal of Europe), but I can't help but notice the great dissonance between 13 and 18 when the... interactions could be perceived in various ways.

Also, doesn't getting married automatically mean you are treated as an adult? I know legal systems like that, where normally you have to be 18 to do something, but when you get married, you are treated as if you were 18.
#53 to #52 - bizengaust (08/20/2014) [-]
Like I said the consent rules are very strange and there is a lot of fine print and it always throws me off, especially since your considered a legal adult at 20 which is when you have your coming of age day which takes place on the second Monday of January after you turn . They say it's helped crack down on a lot of sex crime in that age group but I don't know the gritty details of it.
The harassing of the students happened about two years after I came to Japan and it was the first time I was offered to tutor Junior high. We had just finished up and let them go when another student ran over to me and told me there was a creepy guy in the school yard. When I got out there he was trying to give them money to lift up their skirts for him these girls were only 14 mind you . I was so horrified that all I could think to do was run over and hit the guy with my bag over and over while someone called the police. It wasn't long after this that I learned that there were establishments in the cities where you can go and see school girls and do lewd acts with them their ages range from 13 to god knows where and it's all perfectly legal.
This is why I always tell my students to go home in either pairs or groups and to carry something that they can defend themselves with if they have to. Even if it is acceptable in establishments I simply cannot stomach the concept of someone asking that of a child legal or not.
#54 to #53 - bestfoxgirl (08/22/2014) [-]
Oh, I guess it is kinda strange. I don't know how it 'helped', since that course of actions always work just to cover up the problem with inaccurate statistic than avert the social issues themselves.

So it was in Japan? I didn't know such things happen there, I mean, Japan society seemed far too... moral to do such things.

Yeah, asking a child to do that is more than disgusting... and I hope they still treat it as harassment if someone asks for that outside these 'legal establishments', otherwise there would be no way of defending against such... creatures (sorry but I won't call them humans)
#55 to #54 - bizengaust (08/22/2014) [-]
Japan is very moral but they are also very traditional which I don't think is horrible considering I come from a culture where men are gentleman and woman are ladies but in Japan they take it as an excuse to treat woman as second class. Things have gotten better though and they crack down on sexual harassment more then they used to in the past. People actually get jail time whereas in the past they would have to simply pay a heavy fine and they've created woman only train/subway cars to avoid the groping problem. In my eyes it's one thing if someone comes up to me and slaps my ass I'll just turn around and slap the **** out of them but to do that to a child is just disgusting. It's like....whats wrong with you? Do you have no sister or mother? How would you feel if someone treated them like that?

It's just good that he didn't suffer. You know, there was nothing that could be done, so there's no blame on anyone.   
   
That's why I wouldn't bear to have a pet. Other than the fact that I'm not responsible enough.

Funny enough I used to think the same. Before I got him (his name was Oskar) I was a pretty selfish person and I cared only about myself. But I found him one day at shelter where he was a runt and my father convinced me to get him to teach me to be responsible. It was really 						******					 at first and I hated how much work he was, but over time I grew to love him and when I came to Japan he was my rock when I got nervous or scared. Looking back I am glad for the time I had with him and I wouldn't have changed it for anything.  I'm a firm believer of everything happening for a reason

Yes they are very different. You're from Germany? I spent a summer going around there when I was out of college. I went around Munich and Berlin. It was very lovely  also I love you're beer halls

My family is from denmark, although I can't speak a single word danish and was there only once last year, but yea, I'm from germany, bavaria to be exact (If anyone tells you anything about beer and he isn't born in bavaria, chances are he's lying)

You shouldve gone to cologne, THAT is a great city. In my opinion anyways.

こんにちは, random Japan-interested anon here. I really liked you're comps about Japan and I was wondering about something. When I went to Osaka 2 years ago, I was really shocked that there were hardly any free wi-fi spots anywhere (which doubled when I found out there weren't any at McDonalds or Starbucks either). Did you have a similar reaction when you first moved to Japan?

P.S. Could you include vending machines in a future comp? I'm still a little confused as to why they seemed to have one at every block.
#27 to #25 - bizengaust (07/15/2014) [-]
I was at first yes, especially in the cities where you'd think it would be all over the place. The reason for this though is because they have special wi fi cafes where people can go and use computers or a wi fi connection. They are pretty much cyber cafes. They also have book shops like this to. I plan on working the weird vending machines into a comp in the future. I just want to get enough photos of them together first.

Hey! I just wanna say thanks for all the comps about Japan and daily life there. I'm very intersted in japanese culture and it's really interesting to hear from someone who lives there about it all! I'm looking forward to the next

I guess you watch anime as well? Loved the Myths and facts about Japan btw. Have this russian dub opening as a way of thanks for that post!! Neon Genesis Evangelion / OP (Nika Lenina Russian TV Version)

annnnd I forgot to log in, so here have another song lol

Spice and Wolf / OP №1 (Nika Lenina & Ancord Russian Version)
#19 to #16 - bizengaust (06/27/2014) [-]
I will officially be downloading that song onto my Ipod. I do know some anime but not a lot I have a very limited knowledge but my students make sure to teach me what is popular. I read a lot of manga though when I was learning about Japanese culture in college though. Kaori Yuki is my favorite mangaka of all time. she did the Count Cain saga,Godchild,Angel Sanctuary,ect.
User avatar #20 to #19 - accidented (06/27/2014) [-]
Unfortunately I do less manga and more anime. Glad you enjoy'd some of NLenina's song. She does lots of opening covers, feel free to check out any other stuff. Thanks for the wonderful facts again! Will you do a part 2?

haha, I've been taking the Rosetta Stone course. Do they assume all white Americans that learn the language are weeaboos? I heard they look down on you for that.
#5 to #4 - bizengaust (06/20/2014) [-]
They can if you make it obvious that's why your there. Even if you do like anime you have to be very modest about it. It would be like going to England and assuming everyone likes doctor who as much as you do.

Why did you take down your content about Japan? I wanted more.
User avatar #3 to #2 - bizengaust (06/18/2014) [-]
It will be explained in my next comp, which I'm actually about to post. Don't worry I will be making more.
