> Hundreds of anime about high school girls> Barely anything about college aged girlsWhy?
>Only watch fotm shit>Never read manga>How come there never any series about [Thing]Gee I wonder
Japanese lose their souls when they hit puberty.That wouldn't be fun to watch.
>>154829439 If it was any good it would get an adaptation
>>154829404>college girlsif you wanted a show about sluts kuzu's already doing that
They just don't get translated.I mean, would you expect to see college students in Jump?
>>154829404Not youthful anymore.Some mangaka and some otaku seem to have that closed kind of mindset as criteria to buy and sell manga/anime (I sometimes do, sadly)
>>154829464>not wanting a series about a group of high school friends getting into college and going into a downward spiral until they're all cynical, nigh emotionless husksCome on now
>>154829404College is garbage.
>>154830029You're right, this needs to be funded now.
Eop's like OP exclusively read shonen jump
JDs are great, though.
>>154829404otaku cannot into college so it's unfamiliar and uncomfortable
>>154829404Neo-a has become too old for anime. It's time for you to go.
College girls have big books.
>>154829404Liking old hagsGross
>>154829490fukken mangafag rekt af by the truth lmao
>>154829404artists cannot into college
This is your design student for the evening.
Imagine having such an awful work culture that you actually think school was the best part of your life
>activities: lacrosse>major: ???
>>154831555I have never worked a job that even approached university life.
There are plenty of JD manga, you know. They don't get adapted because university students don't really watch anime unless they're otaku, in which case they'd be watching JK stuff.
>Why?Because most anime is aimed at younger teenagers.
>>154831555Pretty much all Japan had going for it after its spirit was crushed was muh economic miracle, when that inevitably fails and the culture you have is bastardized and soulless you're kinda fucked
Easier to identify with imoPretty much everyone in the first world countries attended high school at some point. College, not necessary, especially if we're talking about otaku crowd. Higher chances of going neet, hiki, or becoming mangaka/animator in which case degree is virtually useless. Also, universities don't have sailor uniforms so fuck that
>>154830128.t someone who flunked out or couldn't even make it in
>>154829475no because manga is the patrician medium and anime adaptations are to capitalize on burnout and plebian wallets
Steins;Gate featured college students. Dunno why more anime don't use them, it's pretty easy to make it work. I guess turbovirgin protags who get worked up over kisses would be less believable in such a settings.
>>154829404>Why a media that targets kids, teens and manchildren doesn't try to appeal to college students.Gee I wonder why.
college people don't have time in japan to read
>>154829404Is there more where this came from, in terms of (suggested) belly service? Asking for my uncle.
>>154831604The JDs in iM@S are the best.
>>154829404Japanese people have time skips as soon as they leave high school.
>>154830029That's actually a very good idea. And should they try fighting against the system or should they just lose all hope and become Tang?
>>154831860Part of the reason I really liked Genshiken. Having to be in college and face more defined responsibilities in every day life made relating to them so much easier. Obv fell apart when it became a harem manga but it had a good run.
>>154831937If only it weren't so irritating to go through Twitter for pics.
>>154829404There are shows with people after high school. They're just targeted towards a different crowd besides Shoujo/Shounen. And obviously you're still the target demographic for children. Shows focused on older girls also mostly focus on love stories and getting married. Since Japanese society puts so much pressure on women quickly rushing to get married.
>>154832234>A german who apparently speaks fluent Japanese but not English>"It's hard to learn languages"?
>wish there were good manga about grad school>find one>the grad student drops out, then immediately and permanently enters a high school scenariofucking why
>>154832234>>154832174>>154829404>>154832443Pretty glad it's socially unacceptable to just overshare your fetishes like this.
>>154832174>>154832234There goes my hero.>>154832311>humanities
>>154829404>Settling for overripe fruit.
>>154832174My fetish is plump girls, but this is the only attractive one of all the ones you've posted. Because a plump girl also needs massive hips and breasts to keep the correct proportions.
>>154829404The primary argument you seem to get here is that there isn't nearly as many people interested in Anime that would identify with such a setting.It's an argument I don't understand because even as young as 12 years old I strongly preferred more adult themes. k-12 school was garbage, and because I felt obligated to shoot for the top grade in every class, it was a non-stop grind of studying interspersed with assholes and judgmental bitches that talked down to me despite never being my intellectual equal.All my favorite anime lack a significant school setting.
>>154832569>I'm smarter than everyone else>I only watch adult shows>all my favorite shows lack a school settingPretty sure you're still 12 years old.
At this point I don't even think it's about habit as much as it is the fact that setting your story in a highschool completely absolves you of needing to come up with interesting settings, character designs, or even plot elementsEvery room looks exactly the same or exactly how you would think a high school looks, all any character needs beyond their uniform is a single identifying feature like glasses or neon colored hair that make them completely stand out from every other student in the school, and conflict can be introduced at a moments notice by failing a test, having a big school event come up that the characters need to prepare for, some tacky young love can be thrown in there for good measure, etc.
>20I wonder, aside from idoling, is Yuki a NEET?
>>154832687It definitely stinks more of laziness to me. Especially the ones that are clearly only using a high school as a method of enforcing a familiar structure.>magical land full of rare beasts to hunt! but we train you in a japanese styled high school>world where heroes are needed to defend against demons! trained in a high school>hell! but japanese high school>800 year old vampire/demon/whatever emerges from a slumber! has to go to japanese styled high school
>>154832569>judgmental bitches that talked down to me despite never being my intellectual equal>You can only talk shit to me if you top your gradesJeez bud, I wonder why you were hated.
>>154829404because japan gets nostalgia from highschool days more than college daysthats why
>>154832443please, give me dat source
>>154832569You sound like an asshole, you probably deserved to be bullied
>>154832569>talked down to me despite never being my intellectual equalBecause intellect is the only thing that matters, right? Everyone hated you because you were a shitty human being, intellect has no relevance to this.
>>154829404Because high school or junior high school girls allow Animetors or Mangakas need to draw only one outfit:school uniform.They don't need to bother thinking every girls' outfit everytime.
>>154832997yeah, because they don't wear bloomers anymore...
>>154832687It's an easy trope to fall into. Like you said, it gives too many easy answers to problems you would find while writing something. Also, remember that mangaka may or may not go to college, so the thing they have the most experience with is high school, making it even easier for them to keep writing about it. It's also an escapist media where the people that pour the most money into it are extreme shut-ins that basically hate the real world, while the normies just don't care enough to complain.
>>154833048I don't think most shut ins have fond memories of highschool, case in point:>>154832569This dork.
A JD is fine too.
>>154829464Unlike in America where the world supposedly opens up to you, in Japan it is much more foregone in what college and what levels of education you can pursue, I think.Either that or College just doesn't exist in Nippon.
>>154831864>college people don't have time in japan to readjap uni students are busy slacking off!true story!after college entry exams, most japs just slack off.their college is not really rigorous unless it's anything to do with engineering.
>>154833138Exactly why they want to read about a high school where everything is perfect and everyone homes towards the mc's dick as long as he is a nice guy. Can you imagine if everyone wrote high school manga as if it was in a real high school?
>>154831653...What does JD stand for?Jousei,,,?
>>154833188Yeah, basically its socializing and having big sex parties etc. where they lure fresh girls into their rape circles.
>>154833257JY - Joshi Yochien - Kindergarten Girl (5-6)JS - Joshi Shogakusei - Elementary School Girl (6-12)JC - Joshi Chugakusei - Junior-high School Girl (12-15)JK - Joshi Koukousei - High School Girl (15-18)JD - Joshi Daigakusei - College Girl (18+)
>>154833179Japan's one and only "real" university is TODAI.The rest are just vocation schools, really specialized schools or high intense engineering or STEM schools
>>154833232Fair enough. I guess what I was trying to get at is that their experience with High School doesn't really aid that much in the writing process when they just idealize the shit out of everything anyway.
>>154832442I'm a grad student in Japan. I would watch a show about college kids because undergrad here is a joke, but grad school is just a buttload of hours in the lab running experiments and analyzing data. Why would you want a series about that? Also to people saying college students don't watch anime, it's time to stop pretending you know what Japanese college students do.
>>154833269>they lure fresh girls into their rape circles.watthat's so 90s-2000sdon't hear stuff like that anymore
College isn't an age of endless party and freedom for Asians like it is for Americans. It's a soulless place of study your ass off.
>>154829439For a moment I thought you were complaining about no manga about The Thing.Parasyte was decent and all but what we really need is a Bodysnatching horror anime set in Antarctica.
>>154832420Think how fucking awful it must be to be a nonwhite female. I dont even mean that in a misogynistic way>Arabwe all know what this is like>AsianEither thrown down a well or "get married before 24 or youre fucked">BlackLiterally not even your own race wants to date you, black girls are fucking crazy.>HispanicSee above
>>154833303I've learned to appreciate American individuality and college stereotypes. Sure beats being pressed into an absolutely lifeless salary-man job.I can look forward to vacations, time off, and i'm not as likely to kill myself from overwork!
>>154833349wasnt she studying physics?
>>154833303What about Kyodai?Is it no good?People there speak witht he Kansai accent.
>>154833450basically the story of nearly all japanese college students, no matter what major.in the end, they all major in Home Ec.
>>154832427English is one of the hardest languages in the world with the most ridiculous arbitrary and vague rules that exist probably only to make writers miserable.German is easily 20x easier than English
>>154833305True, which probably helps their version of high school to be even more bizarre, and would also explain why most of them can't write a woman even if their balls were on the line.
>tfw no Minami to lewd after class
>>154833494Because you guys just mash words together and call it a day. Oh shit, it's an anime for adult, should we come up for a word for it? Nah das animederadulten. Also the word swine will be in there somewhere for no reason.
>>154829404>ctrl+f>TADA BANRI>no resultTADA BANRIADA BANRI
>>154833531>lewdWell, you'd need to marry her first anyway.
>>154833494>German is easily 20x easier than English
>>154833590my point still stands murilard, english is a bitch language, you're lucky the bongs took over the world otherwise their shit language would have died on the isles.
>>154833494Try learning portuguese some time.Did you know we have three separate ways of making an S sound? The rule for where each goes is "Where did this word come from?" And we also have 13 different conjugations for our verbs.Good luck!
>>154833494Stop gendering your damn words, and please fix this die der des situation. Just have "the" in singular or plural like normal languages and then you can talk to us about complexity.
>>154833447Todai, Kyodai, Waseda, Keio, Kyuushuu and Sapporo are all pretty good. Most others are adult day, and anyone claiming high school is a time of freedom is retarded, as undergrad here is a joke. I'm at Todai, and honestly even my grad level lectures are easy, and I lucked out with a really kind lab and PI. It's not like American top schools where you'll get some chink PI screaming at you for spending less than 70 hours a week in the lab. Yesterday was a holiday and less than half the lab showed up, most of them after 4pm. People here are less stressed out than internet Japan experts would have you believe. You want to see stress? Go look at grad students and medical students at top schools in America. I've been there, it's not pretty.
>>154833651I'm not american. I was just poking fun at german. I think your reputation for 0 sense of humour might be deserved.English is GOAT btw and the lingua franca for a reason. Or in terms you understand it's das wunderkindlanguageswinebrau.
>>154833689Most others are adult day care*
>>154833659>gendering words is native only to the german languageshaking my head at you famalam
>>154833494But if you know German you're already halfway there, it's absurd to act like English is so much harder than learning an entirely distinct and incredibly detailed language
>>154833778Well English doesn't, I know Spanish and French do it, and god knows what other eastern euro garbles do.
>>154833689Depression and suicide rates in Japan are mostly for high school though, no? Once you complete all those exams and get into college I should suspect that it gets easier otherwise all of Japan's youth would be sporting rope neckties.
Old hags are terrible. High school anime shouldn't even exist.
>>154833725English isn't the lingua franca because it's easy to use. It's the lingua franca because of the fact that American corporations tend to have tendrils everywhere, so if you want to do any sort of business it's a good idea to know bits of it.It's still the hardest language in the world to learn and often it's a better idea to learn other languages first if you're never intending to work on a global scale.
>>154833865>It's still the hardest language in the worldCitation Needed
>>154833865>In the worldHow can you justify the chinese using pictographic Kanji as being easier than English, or Finnish which has a fuckton of conjugation.
>>154833842Only dirty garbage indian languages like Arab, Turkish and Chinese don't gender words. English is a trash language and I wish it weren't the de facto lingua franca.
>>154833494Learning german in college and I can say I have no idea what I'm doing. Not blaming the language but, just fuck.
>>154833188Engineering isn't rigorous, not even remotely. Busywork isn't rigor.
>>154833344>grad school is all STEMsperg shit
>>154833944Why Gender things, what in God's name does it serve? Why is my map MASCULINE, but a man's face is FEMININE since Cara is feminine in Spanish.
>>154833928>>154833941Because those languages, while complex, are internally consistent. Once you know the rules and how things are meant to be said or conjugated you can apply those rules and they'll work in almost any scenario you can think of.In English there's really no such thing. There's 50 million rules for how, when and why you say something each with specific exceptions for certain words and even more exceptions depending on the regional dialect. People learning english tend to make so many mistakes because they apply the rules they learn that are supposed to make sense but then you come across exceptions all the time.
>>154829404>humanities are the best
>>154833941not him but Chinese and Japanese have piss-easy lego-like grammar compared to English.Once you learn Kanji/Hanzi it's easier to glance/speed-read Chinese and Japanese.Other benefits of Kanji/Hanzi/Hanja is rote memorization... and this is important in learning and retaining math. No wonder east asians populations have good grasp of math/
>>154834079So because of special cases Japanese and Chinese can get away with the fact that you need to know at least 50,000 of them just to read the news? You can be proficient with other Latin Alphabet Languages in about 4 years. People learning Kanji keep on learning new ones for over a decade after starting.
i liked the k-on college arc
>>154833968You're just stupid. I'm also learning German and it's fine.>>154834093STEMsperg. >>154834110They don't have a good grasp of math, they have a good grasp of memorizing answers or of memorizing processes.
>>154834110So basically, because so Kanji is so Godamn tedious, they can easily do other tedious things? Yay for complexity?
>>154834189Rude. It's hard man. All these random genders and stuff.
>>154833656Portuguese is like Spanish diarrhea.
>>154834149Are you retarded or something? 50,000 is more Kanji than currently exists. Education in Japan currently covers about 2000 of the most commonly used Kanji, more if you're in the higher ed.There's also the important aspect that you can actually read Kanji without knowing the meaning. If you know the radicals and certain subgroupings you can understand the meaning of it without having to read it.In comparison there's no such thing in english. You will never know the meaning of a word by reading it unless you implicitly already know its meaning.
>make thread about qt college anime girls>devolves into arguing about shitposting about college majors and linguistic complexity of languagesguys please
>>154834336>You will never know the meaning of a word by reading itContext clues, nigger.
>>154834279Gender is pretty inconsequential. Anybody used to being around learners will have little issue understanding.>>154834355Old hags can't be cute. JC > * > shit > JD
>>154834355what did you expect, that's 4chan's bread and butter
>>154834149except basic characters in pictographic languages build up to more complex characters that you can infer meaning out of just like reading words that you don't know but you can infer its definition from context clues in english.
>>154834336You still have to learn the Kanji in the first place, which are unique, even with subgroups. 26 beautiful letters are all you need to help make out the words needed. Also, context helps in finding out English words as well.
>>154833656>someone understandsPortuguese is an awful language. Sounds like shit, nearly impossible to learn, only spoken in shitholes so it's nearly useless to even put the effort.
>>154834405>old hags can't be cute>meanwhile a huge proportion of /a/ worships christmas cakes much older than college qts
>>154834079>internally consistentYou never learned another language, did you?My own language has a fuckload, if not as many exceptions to rules as english.Dude, seriously. I know English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian , a bit of Latin and I'm now learning Japanese and Chinese.Of all those languages, can you guess which one was the easiest after Latin?
>activities: airsoft, miliota>major: ???
>>154834461we are men of extremeswe dont like the in betweens
>>154834467I'm going to guess you know none of those languages fluently and the only thing you can ask is 'where is the bathroom'.
>>154834296>>154834459It's one of those languages that unless you literally live in a country that uses it, don't EVER even fucking bother to learn it. It's simply not worth the effort it requires. Unless you're learning to say "I'm foreign" so you can get some bunda.
>>154833854Pretty much. The only hard part are entrance exams, then it's easy mode. Even then, that stuff is only hard if you're dumb. Most people here just found it annoying.
>>154834405Maybe but it counts in college. Hose lost points add up.
>>154834551What lost points?
>>154834516Literally doesn't look old besides crows feet
>>154834516but that's not even a cake that's literally the border of milf and gmilf territory
>>154834033Sorry, I thought we were talking about real students studying real majors.
>>154834459my brother got a 85k job with oracle cause he knows Portuguese, for some reason they needed someone who does whatever the hell he does but can speak Portuguese also.
>>154834592like I said , extremes
>>154833689Are you there for a 1 year exchange or for the whole cursus?I've been in italy for the whole graduate/Master's program and it's been quite nice, thinking about going to moon land for a Ph.D but I heard entrance exams qre not easy, even for foreigners.
>>154834526Spanish, portuguese, Italian and Latin are ridiculously similar, all you have to do is to focus on the differences. English borrows a lot of words from Latin and French, since it seems they loved the baggete during the renaissance.To be fair I love linguistics and shit, but that's not the point.
>>154834189>No grasp of moon>Complaining about STEMFound the retard.
>>154834598>STEM>real student>real majorLab slave prep isn't anything but high school 2.0
>>154834614but then why all the cake loving they're about as middle of the pack as you can get since college girls seem to be a tiny minority
>>154834603So the game plan is take your pick from not really important European Countries, learn the language and hope you're a winner?
>>154834631STEM is for children, sorry.
>>154829404According to anime, senior year of HS is the twilight years of being alive. Starting with graduation exams, everything else is soul crushingly depressing. Study, study, work, work, kiss ass until you die.
>>154829404Because no1 goes to college in Japan
>>154834189>>154834196PISA math rankings by country says otherwise.On average, Asians have good grasp of math fundaments. Fundamentals must be formed before you get "creative" with math.
>>154834674>math rankingsYes, memorizing answers and processes.Asians never get creative. Regardless, logicwankery is never creative. Only children think it is a sign of anything resembling intelligence.
>>154834674Yet in the country the whole left brain dominance thing is a bit all over the place innit? Don't they have an on average lower level of computer literacy then the U.S. And I think they still use Fax regularly.
>>154829404Is that some bearcat
>>154834467Now latin actually has super complex grammar with like 150+ different possible verb endings.But everything is so regular you don't have to memorize a ton of stuff.
>>154834645The game is supply/demand senpai.Take english as a base line. Then branch out into different languages. Japanese is a good one, since while some weebs are learning it so they can have a trip to "ahkihahbawrrah", or to watch their anime, a well spoken translator is harder to find. Specially when most nips can't speak english for SHIT. You can also try chinese, but then you'll have to deal with the chinese.
Because college/university is shitIt reminds me of all the wasted time and money I spent
>>154834857anyone got that greentext story about how the chinese are absolute horrors to deal with? it was about steel companies and how the guy was begging some anon to learn any language besides chinese.
>>154834857Ugh, why can't the upcoming power be like, Norway? Chinese is kinda agreed upon to be a crap language that is too complex for it's own good.Also, there was that post about a guy having to deal with Chinese steelmakers and how godawful those people are in business. Really makes you want to slap one.

>>154833494Hungarian says hi. Since it's one of the few European languages not based off latin, words that you think will sound the same in English are nothing alike
>>154834854True, but it serves as a baseline for basically any western language and it actually helps you learn them if you ever want. And if you ever learned any of them, it gives you a grasp on how Latin works. >>154834909>>154834928I remember the original thread, and that was exactly what I was referencing. I'll see if I can find it.
>>154834942>Stop embarrassing yourself.

>>154833393I'm a white male and I prefer Polynesian/Black/Hispanic girls for their body type. And they also tend to seek out white males, which is nice.But yes, there are quite a few crazy ones. But there's also crazy entitled white women who think every guy finds them hot. And it's hilarious to see them try to flirt and lead me on and I just don't even respond to it since I hate the Barbie look.
>>154835018>I don't actually know anything about how real research worksIt's so cute that people like you get excited about claiming you're a doctor. The look on people's faces when you tell them what your "research" was about is priceless.
>>154835140Thank you, I saw this just earlier today. Interesting that Russians are actually more reliable than the Chinese, when they are the butt of all Europe jokes.
>>154833393I've been to China and the girls there are obsessed with white beauty standards, they're so frightened of tanning that if its not smoggy/cloudy they'll take an umbrella out to be in the shade 24/7My tour guide was a total sweetheart, she asked me a whole slew of questions including stuff about weed and what it feels like to be high. I have no idea how most Asian girls have trouble getting married, the majority that I've talked to were quite nice and not even pretending to be since they had no idea I was a tourist since both my parents were 100% chink and I speak Mandarin fluently
>>154835182Don't know about the chink girls, but I'm Nippon one of my labmates explained something interesting. Being a housewife use to mean cooking and cleaning and watching kids all day, so it was a lot of work. Now with modern conveniences and appliances, it's much easier and a lot of girls have trouble just staying home all day because they feel bad. That's why a lot of girls focus on career for a while and then get married later. That explains at least a few of them, I figure.

>>154829404It's simpleEveryone goes to highschool. Not everyone goes to college. More people will therefore have the experiences to relate to an anime about highschool.
>>154834355I would like to read a manga about an amateur linguist struggling to learn their fourth or fifth language, to be honest.
>>154834355Thank fucking god. I need a 15 minute break from sad panda sometimes.
>>154829404Because your highschool years are the ones that hold infinite possibilities and paths for you to choose.Being in college means that you've already chosen a path, and that's basically it, nothing more will happen, your life basically enters cruise control.

>>154836369>Norway is a trash country.Indeed.But Norway is also a status by itself. If your cunt has reached "Norway"-status, it is forever doomed to become insignificant, boring and stagnant at high level.I bet nations would rather break their own shit on purpose to stimulate growth before ever wanting to reach Norway status.
>>154836433Yes, and my assumption is that you're not at a good school, given that you're blabbering like a fucking retard and crying about muh STEM majors. Try to keep up.>>154836369Jesus Christ, learn English.

>>154832853Exactly, no one wants to read about the daily grind of college and the form situation, which is usually 2-3 people in one tiny ass room with no floor space. If you've ever done a semester over there you'd know it's like a job on its own, and boring as all hell. People also barely ever speak to one another. I think maybe once a month we had time to go out and drink or go to a club, but that's not good material either.

>>154838318What I meant by >>154837418 was that GD will usually glance over many subjects, while not going into too much detail on any of them. If you want to be an animator, an animation course would probably be better, same with photography. Then there's stuff that I learned on that one year of GD that I still use to this day, specially when dealing with GUIs.The catch is that I probably wouldn't be using any of that if I didn't learn programming that went past the bareboned pseudo-language that is HTML.That's why I said 頑張って, because you probably won't have a easy time with just a GD degree, even though you will learn a lot from it.

How's that general chemistry teaching you?
>>154840429>>154838525Just to add up, here's a few examples. I knew a bunch of people of my class, and after I left I kinda looked up what happened to them. -1st friend finds freelancing work quite easily with 3d modelling for advertisement companies. Thing is, he did an extensive course on modeling before he went to college.-2nd friend is able to draw extremely fucking well, and freelances his art for a livingHe already knew how to draw really well before he went to college and practiced like a maniac everyday. -3rd friend works with web design. Which he already worked with before college.Around 2 or 3 other friends are trying to kickstart their artist profiles with slightly above deviant art tier artwork.Another one is making some good money selling her paintings, which she practiced a lot by herself.So just to drive the point home, you'll learn a lot of useful shit that you will use every single fucking time you try and do something artistic that goes beyond scribbling boobs on a drawthread. Shit like color composition, visual identity, character silhouettes, you know the stuff. The thing is, just like any other art degree, the only thing that matters is your portfolio. And if you only do what college tells you to do, that shit is gonna look pretty poor by the end of it. So stay strong anon, and put in a lot of effort. It might just pay off in the end. Or not.Fuck art degrees.

High-level corporate would be a gold mine, but of course anyone actually making anime would never know about how to portray an executive.>Backdoor deals worth millions/billions>Meetings with Death Note levels of trying to outplay your peers>Influence peddling galore>Fighting other executives to promote your team>Literally more teamwork shenanigans than any Sports anime>Hot secretariesWhen you graduate and make money you'll all see the light, instead of measuring who might one day make money.
>>154842580It's been answered many times in this thread. See >>154832420Basically it has to do with demographics. Most people who think anime has no shows focused on people after high school are only watching shows about high school kids. It's like only watching We Bear Bears and asking where all the adult cartoons are at.
>>154842826I see, thanks anon, an actual good answer. You can continue your linguistic and autistic debate
>>154842580Honey and Clover is about a bunch of college art students. Its a pretty good manga with a good amount of both romantic feels and 'holyfuck why did i choose to major in pottery im gonna die penniless' feels as well.

>>154831604> Major: Semen demon of the highest order.Now going on topic... have you ever read Grandblue? is originally about a guy in a diving club but for me is more college students doing college things.
Japanese culture dictates that you should spend your time either working or studying after high school, otherwise you are a waste for society.That's why many of the shows that feature adults are either in their workplace or they are NEETs all together.With high school aged characters the viewer doesn't have to ask the question "why aren't they working/studying?", "how do they make a living if they don't work hard?", "why does this person have so much free time? don't they have to study/work?"This only applies for anime where the setting are 'realistic' in a fantasy context it doesn't really matter the ages of the characters.Also that's why anime is considered a childish activity, because if you have enough time to watch a lot of shows per season you are either a child or a NEET.
>>154842953>it's a /co/ analogyIt worked fine. Why are you bringing up your Tsun for /co/?
>>154842577i wish i knew you. im korean american and my korean is getting rusty after leaving home. it would be great to keep it at a good level and help someone learn at the same time.why did you decide to learn it? it isnt a popular choice except among people who get into a relationship with a korean.
>>154842921Everything that mangaka writes is poorly contrived melodrama.
I'm more troubled about the lack of dept in pretty much all the military anime&manga. There's very few where military actually feels like military and not just high school crap with guns and different uniforms. And lack of hats and helmets. Nips are too in love with hair.
>>154842817thisI could never go into business, there's too much backstabbing shit, sneaky shit, shady shit, slimy shit, and bullshit. I feel like I would turn into this disgusting ice-cold lizard if I moved up the ladder.
>>154844310hair is one of the few ways to deter same-face syndrome, if the art was any good they'd be able to differentiate between characters but low-level anime don't have the budget for that.
>>154829404>woman in college>studying languageChecks out
>>154835182that's not white beauty standards though, Chinese avoid tans simply because dark skin isn't at all desirable, because traditionally, only peasants and farmers are out laboring in the sun, which causes a tan, while the upper class and noble people are indoors most of the time, hence the preference for white skin.
>>154831718>universities don't have sailor uniformsAnd how is that a bad thing? I'm tired of seeing the same damn uniforms in every anime. I'm pretty sure it's a cheap way to avoid coming up with a different clothing style for each female character.
>>154843004>if you have enough time to watch a lot of shows per season you are either a child or a NEET.I can see how some people may think like this, but on average it only takes one hour a day to watch 20 shows at the same time, it's not that much.
>>154845134The West used to be the same way.The only reason tans are seen as attractive now is because only rich people can afford to lie around on the beach getting tanned all day, while working people are inside all the time now.
>>154845257To be honest, the school girl uniforms look better in real life than they do anime.

>>154845362I mean, in japanese culture working like 10 hours a day is the norm.
>>154850125It actually is. It's chalk full of words that end in consonants--the vast majority of the world's languages tend to end in vowels. Most of English grammar relies heavily upon word order and a rather dizzying array of seemingly arbitrary prepositions. Add to that the articles (a/an/the) that are actually a pretty rare feature (mostly just Eurpoean languages).By no means is it the hardest--but given the sheer number of non-natives who have to learn it to varying degrees, English's difficulty is well documented and understood.
>>154829404It's out there, but college-aged stories just tend to suck. It's always the same angsty 'slightly older coming-of-age' story where a childish adult figures out their place in the big scary world. Their endings tend to be wish fulfilment where the character magically discovers an answer that doesn't work in the real world and just moves on for a contrived feel good ending, or else just so happens to conveniently find the perfect soulmate love of their life and live happily ever after and those problems just go away like they never mattered.Even for people going through something similar, those stories can be hard to relate to, and they're usually angsty downers for the most part that don't offer the kind of escape from the real world and real world problems that people look for.And cute, fun stories about adults can be harder to make convincing because they're adults. You can't have adults get away with the same kind of silly mistakes or misunderstandings because our expectations of adults is different. You can't have an adult romance where two characters orbit one another, afraid to make the first move, because the average viewer will just laugh at these clearly emotionally stunted and mentally ill retards that somehow still can't into relationships in their 20s. And, of course, you can't have an adult relationship depicted without sex either happening or being implied, and frankly while relationships are cute and fun to read and watch about, lots of people just aren't interested in being privy to someone's sex life.As a result, most college-aged stuff you find is either the former angsty 'learning to be an adult' type story or just smutty schlock centered around the dramatic sexual misadventures of adult women. There's not much else out there, and also just generally not much else you can really do with the concept. Even fantasy and sci-fi stories tend to work better with a teen perspective character

>>154842007Humanities can be really valuable in ways people don't expect. I learned a lot of public speaking and basic human interaction stuff (eg. self-presentation, not being a sperg) from what that degree put me through. If I had gone into business from the getgo I would have the qualifications for a job but not the personal skills to find one since I'm a loser to the core. Learning to fake it and at least communicate well took me pretty far, and the technical knowledge is all stuff I self-taught along the way.I feel like if you finished a humanities degree and don't at least have the communication skills to advocate for the value of your degree, then you got no value out of your degree and that's nobody's fault but your own. Those communication skills are what will let you succeed in an interview while an older, more experienced and better qualified asian man sweats profusely in the seat next to you. Communication is as valuable in business as actual business knowledge and much harder to learn
>>154850864Clearly it's quite difficult if your reading comprehension is still so poor.

>>154851138It's completely true.It's also why a lot of people probably see no value in it, because they learned those skills intuitively growing up or had a crash course in them through teenhood and puberty. Either that, or because they're so deluded and spergy that they go through the degree and never pick up any of those communication skills being taught to them (I know a lot of people like this), which is like going through a business degree and never learning basic math.But at the same time, a lot of normal, well-adjusted people are poor communicators or just not good with stepping outside of their comfort zone, so being more confident in it is very advantageous. I don't want to rant about social politics but I notice the office environment is typically full of the sort of wallflower types who were social in highschool because they had a big group of friends and were easy to approach, but weren't really more than followers. Now that they're older, they're still approachable but nobody approaches them because it isn't highschool anymore and they don't even really know how to start casual conversations with strangers --like their social skills have atrophied. They're good employees, but they're also why good communicators can be valuable to an office dynamic: somebody needs to be the one to start the conversation with them.

>>154850664You're not working 10 hours a day you're working like 6 and then sitting at the computer for four of them even though you've done all your work because it looks bad to leave before your boss leaves even though your boss isn't doing any work either and is just staying to make sure they look good in front of the employees
>>154851400Yeah I don't know what to tell you, most people are too stupid to even build up a rapport with professors and then wonder why they can't get good letters of rec or network properly, and holy shit most people can not interview to save their life. I never had these problems, so I can't imagine studying something just to learn how to interact on a basic level.
>>154851420You live in Japan, don't you? This was one of the first things I noticed here.
I don't think university culture in Japan is the same as college culture in the US. I can't imagine Japanese students view their time at college as three years of vacation for them to party and smoke weed and get laid all the time.
>>154851503From what I understand, college time in Japan is basically a career-focused crunch period. Your grades actually matter very little, classes are easy compared to equivalent US institutions and performance expectations are low. Your GPA is also largely irrelevant. Instead, you basically use your time there to network to as many companies in your field of study as possible and apply for constant interviews to line up a job for when you graduate. People will go as far as skipping classes just to fit more interviews into a day, but since every other student is doing the same thing, the amount of competition is huge and you just keep trying and trying.This is also why people with a career in mind that doesn't explicitly require a degree often just go straight into the field. It's not the same as the US where people are effectively unemployable without a bachelor's.And yeah, this is a big part of why you don't see much japanese fiction centered around college. Unless they're in something like med, which is obviously very focused on your actual classes and education, their 'college life' is really just job searching and interviews while angsting over the uncertainty of whether or not they'll find a job before their peers leave them behind and move onto the next stage of their lives.

>>154852379Unless you're actually speaking moon, only tryhard faggots like the folks from /jp/ use it.
>>154842577This is a big part of why asian languages tend to be rated so high in learning difficulty.It's not necessarily that they're harder than anything else, but when you encounter something unclear or counterintuitive (of which there will be a lot for an english-speaker) there's virtually no teaching resource available to assist you. You just flounder until you can absorb enough via osmosis to 'get it' but there's no oppourtunities for that unless you visit the country and live there for any period or find a 1st gen cultural enclave that's welcoming to outsiders.I took a couple language summer courses while in university and the gist of most of them was basically just a travel coupon to the country.

>>154832569>intellectual>cant even figure out the easiest game in the world known as "social interaction"Im completely sure this is just some shit you made up for replies, but still. If you have trouble getting along with people in grade school and cant figure out how to at least comfortably coast by, you are not very smart and probably just autistic. We are social animals and understanding how to get along with others is way more important than postulates and Pythagorean theorems. Also, japanese people make so many shows about school because it was the one happy, carefree time in their life and the adult business world is such a depressing grind they have mass fucking suicide. Their life is shit and anime is the only way to cope with living in an office 75% of your adult life, along with getting drunk.

>>154853970It's generally considered a bad thing for teenagers to be having wild, promiscuous sex while in highschool. It's also believable that someone would approach love triangles cautiously when you;re in a small school community where most people know one another by name, and a small faux-pas can have wide-reaching social consequences for your school life. This is actually pretty much the stock excuse in highschool romcoms, eg. that the MC must approach the situation delicately because just flat-put choosing one girl at the expense of the others can cause a whole system of friendships to come crashing down and then they'll be the bad guy.Outside of highschool, that shit doesn't matter unless you're in some kind of absurd office romance.

>>154832003They go crazy and walk off into the sunset high noon style, abandoning their old selves to find something better.
>>154855202No, first we complained about Japanese being hard and now we can complain about Japanese working conditions.
Because Japanese people die after high school. While people are more and more free in university/college, the Japanese start to work. Thats why it makes no sense to ever move to Japan. Their work ethics are beyond retarded and you'd only end up working more for less. The audience would have a hard time self inserting if the university life is so much different from 95% of what the population experienced or is currently experiencing. Japans system is way closer to Germanys. People often just start to work in their respective field after having graduated high school, some decide to go to college to specialize a bit more and line up job interviews in the process. Its the complete opposite to countries like the US where a Bachelors degree is somewhat required to even get a job in the first place.To be honest: Some anime would seem way more "realistic" if it wasnt about a bunch of 16 year old who are geniuses that talk like 65 year old philosophers. Imagine being retarded and consuming nothing but anime. You'd be under the impression that Japanese high school students are fucking geniuses.
>>154833494>a language is harder to learn than another>because of its rulesI would've accepted "because there aren't many resources on it" but no, no, this is absolutely wrong on all levels. No language is harder than another. Language tends to evolve to be easier if something becomes too hard. English dropped case inflection for question words a long time back (only remaining one is "whom"), German has developed a new class of locative articles so you don't need to say "an dem"
>>154855337How is telling people to die and shitting on republicans a discussion of Japanese working conditions? Seriously, just leave and never come back.

There are few anime about college girls, but there are tons of manga that have college students as their characters.>>154831653>university students don't really watch anime unless they're otakuIf you actually go to Japan you'll see that this isn't true.

College in America is fun, students just skip lectures to smoke weed in their dorms. In Japan it's not, it's a race to secure your future employment.
>>1548740141st year is like that.By second year, everyone who was skipping and smoking up is gone and there's this awkward mix of socially capable people who want nothing to do with anyone because all their friends dropped out, and socially incapable people who are desperate to be your friend but don't know how.Unless you're in a community college, in which case every year is like that but then you wasted a bunch of years and got a worthless degree.
>>154874014Because American education is a joke and is not lecture-based. Read the textbook and you get an A. Factory-school horseshit. Less students in class means less work for everybody, they get your money anyway. >OMG I FUKIN HATE DEBT MAAAAAN I DESERVE THIS SHIT 4FREE>*spends every day smoking weed and drinking and playing video games*
