>>181677024See kokona from Yama no susume
>>181675935I don't think Japan is the only country that exaggerates the size of their homes for fictional characters.

>>181677561Rural poverty looks comfy
>>181677781it's just like living besides the forest, pretty comfy compared to the city
>>181675935Doesn't look like a mansion to me.

>>181677024Living in cheap, no questions asked, flophouses and taking day to day jobs doing things like construction or traffic guarding. Even those one room apartments you see in anime are pretty uncommon amongst the truly poor since they often require significant down payments. Also something like 98% male.

>>181687153Someone explain nip bathing to me. Does no one have showers? Do they always bathe or do they just have like a daily scrub-down on that little stool?
>>181677024Maison Ikokku it is about a guy with no high end job expectations living in a broken old board house . Everyone there is poor as fuck, except the rich suitor for the love interest, of course.
>>181687648I don't have any idea. Although we have plenty of water in my country, bathtubes are absolutely luxury.
>>181687648You can see a showerhead in the top right pic. Basically the whole room in the top right is a shower cabin. And if you actually want to take a bath in the tub, you clean yourself first before going in.
>>181687648That is a shower
>>181687648As pictured, they have a perfectly good shower head mounted in a useless location.
>>181687915What is the use of a bathtube really besides wasting water? I never have even saw one here. I am serious. Why you would classify as a necessity?
>>181687153Looks like the perfect size of you're a single to me. But considering it's Japan it probably costs just as much as something that's twice or trice the size in my country.
>>181687153Why japanese do everything on the floor? A chair is a hard concept? They sometimes do no even have beds.
>>181687976Relaxation apparently. I have one at my home but it has gone unused for years now.
>>181687648You rinse yourself off with the showerhead to get clean. The bath comes after and is purely for relaxation, entering the bath while still dirty is bad manners.
>>181688039>Why japanese do everything on the floor? A chair is a hard concept? They sometimes do no even have beds.>They sometimes do no even have beds.You explained it yourself. The tatami space doubles as a bedroom. Which is why mats are preferred over a hard floor.And putting normal furniture on them ruins the tatami mats. Same with shoes.
>>181675935And their parents left them so they live with their younger sister
>>181688122How they can even sit on this position between the feet for more than seconds? It is painful even, not even unconfortable.
>>181688039>chairs on tatami matsThat room will look like absolute shit after a few months. And the benefit of using futon instead of beds is obvious, you can store them away during daytime to make space for other things and lay them out again when you want to sleep. Especially in small apartments it's a good way to use space efficiently, since you no longer need a separate bedroom.
>>181683822Kokona's poverty hurt a lot in this episode.
>>181688185No clue m8. Maybe japs have different knees from sitting like that since childhood.Not a fan of tatami mats myself, but it's very practical for saving space since it can be used as a bedroom.In larger houses tatami mats are rare.
>>181675935japanese houses are very smol, that's why they have 2 or 3 stories.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv6SbFlZMbU
>>181688185They've trained since childhood to withstand torture
>>181688309Can't be. I do these on training for just a minute and feel my knees wanting to burst. It cannot be really enjoyable even for whole life. It is just like lotus, besides impossible to do without flexibility, it is not confortable at all.
>>181688379Are you perhaps overweight? It's something you get used to after a while.
>>181677024Never watched Kaiji?
>>181688379you are FAT! i only feel my ankles stretch
>>18168844298 kg, 1.85 m.
>>181688258Even the preview looks bigger than my room (not to mention the furniture and the quality of window frames). You have no idea what a real small house looks like.
If we're talking about housing in Japan, where would a mansion where the ojou-type character be located in a city? In real life, are there sections of say, Tokyo and Osaka that is a neighborhood of mansions where rich fatcats and their families live in?
>>181688469thank dog i dont live in gay city

>>181688466You not only are overweight, you are close to entering the obese territory.
>>181688466I'm assuming from those stats you don't exactly have a lithe girl's hip structure
>>181687986>Looks like the perfect size of you're a single to me.Looks pretty small for a mother and a child. Also, I presume that their father has left their poor asses behind already.
>>181688309The pose in your picture is super easy though.
>>181689507maybe if I break my legs. Are you perhaps a woman?
>>181683822You can buy a cheap bare-bones digital camera for under $20 these days. It really makes no sense to waste money on disposable cameras that end up costing more than that after a few uses.
>>181687976Bathtubs are just tiny pools. They're for relaxation.
>>181677024There are working adults that live in internet café booths because it is cheaper than an apartment and you get a computer with internet access.
>>181688185You get used to it. And if it's a soft surface like what tatami are you can shift your weight around without feeling like your knees are about to be crushed.
>>181688185If you are somewhat fit, your body gets used to it.t. used to practice Japanese martial arts that required periods of seiza.
>>181688309>>181688379Sitting like this while jerking off feels good, if i can do it then i'm sure as hell you can too.
>>181677777Japan urban area spacious...You dumb?
>>181687153is this good or bad?
>>181682003Angels and poverty go hand by hand.
>those huge traditional japanese mansions with fancy gardens, included onsen and shit
>>181688185I don't have furniture and just sit on the floor (hardwood). Often in seiza, or I do that turned out legs thing little girls do, or western crossleg style, or I have a small cushion. I just alternate every 20-30 minutes. Sometimes I'll sit on my bed (shikibuton) or push all my blankets into a mound as a sofa of sorts, it's very comfy. Fuck chairs.
>>181691354>hardwoodI thought the Japanese sat on the floor because the tatami is comfy enough, sitting on hardwood sounds tiresome. At least you got a cushion.
>>181691441I'm not japanese so idk about tatami...anyway I find it comfy enough. On the floor you can roll around or sit however you want, just lounge all over the place. chairs you can only sit like 3 different ways so it's restricting. and with a chair now you need a desk and 9 other things, it's bothersome.
>>181691134That pathetic "kitchen" is in no way fire-safe. Better not take a step backwards while cooking food.
>>181687648you can literally see the shower head in the picture you dumbass. however in japan nightly baths are most common, showers are a rare "i'm in a fucking hurry" kind of thing. they take bathing serious there. when you bathe in japan you scrub yourself up with soap, rinse off with the showerhead then jump in the bath after your clean. >>181688039in most places in japan you pack your futon away after waking up and roll it out again before you sleep. you air it out over your balcony through the day to keep bedbugs and mould out of it.
>>181691822yea the nice thing about tatami is it's got a bit of cushion to it despite being a hard surface, plus it's really really easy to keep clean. disadvantage though is freshly laid tatami literally smells like vomit for the first 6 months after it's laid down.
>>181677431are you seriously implying that female poverty isn't a thing? or that poverty is invisible? you need to leave your rich ass neighborhood more
>>181687153>bath is as large as the sink
>>181675935Anime only happens to rich people, poorfags out
>>181675935That house isn't actually that big.It's maybe six rooms total.
>>181692371>six rooms>not bigyou must be from the suburbs
Imagine being retarded enough to live in a bustling, metropolitan city when you can't afford decent housing. That's not a mansion, OP, that's a normal house in the suburbs. Those aren't poor people either, those are people that commute because they're not fucking retarded and Japan's transit makes it a lot easier than say the US.
>>181692600How is six rooms big, exactly?Apartments where I live are six rooms usually.
>>181692790who would have thought privilege was a real thing
>>181692224Depends on the definition of poverty. Extreme, hobo-tier poverty is overwhelmingly male because women are much more likely to receive donations, get employed despite their background, or find a partner who can support both of them financially.
>>181692790This is how you detect underage people.
>>181692950except that poverty is normally defined by the law pretty clearly so I'm not talking about hobo-tier poverty
>>181693003That's why I said it depends on the definition.
>>181687648The entire shower room is watersealed so you shower off first then get in tub to relaxt. English Teacher
>>181675935You're watching the wrong anime. Plenty of series show characters living in realistic small apartments with paper-thin walls and terrible heating that forces them to use fucking kotatsus.
>>181687153japanese 'poverty' actually looks hella comfy though
>>181693355That's because it's anime.
>>181691189Because poor innocent girls die sooner?

>>181675935Mine is way bigger.
>>181683822It's not only about Kokona's poverty. The other girls seem to be fucking rich, they live in fucking mansions
>>181675935That doesn't look like a mansion it looks like an ordinary house.
>this threadIt really is a big world. However, from what I understand, Japanese poverty is nowhere near on the same tier as the US for example. Like, they don't have people on the streets begging, squatting, or living next to dumpsters.
>>181694122>they don't have people on the streets begging, squatting, or living next to dumpsters.They commit sudoku before reaching that point
I want to build a mantion with shipping containers
>>181675935Thats actually not big at all, I mean if you want to break the regulations and ethic of architecture, you could make it smaller.
>>181694193>not turning to crimeDamn, even when getting shat on, they still do their best to not be a burden on society. As expected of a high context culture!
>>181694122>people on the streets begging, squatting, or living next to dumpsters
>>181694122Japanese homeless people look more civilized and cultured than US ones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK--oCVP18A
>>181687153>PovertyThe poor in Japan look bloody rich!
>>181694344They look more civilized and cultured than the average american citizen.
>>181694344>look more civilizedThat's because the government is not slowly trying to literally kill them in class warfare.
>>181694344As always, religious roots play a large part.
whats the trend with harem rom com mcs being poor as fuck (5toubun and bokuben)
>>181677024These three hobos.
>>181694344>they institutionalize anyone seen as "mentally ill"Now there's something you don't hear too often. If their DSM is anything like the US, all it takes is for someone to be a loner in order to be flagged as abnormal and possibly needing "treatment."
>>181694826Self insert smelly neets don't have much income so they have to romanticize it. Some of them stave to death saving for figures and idol CDs.
>>181675935Actually pretty small but most countries have small houses from my ( American) perspective
>>181677987No it’s not. That’s a pretty average sized house in the US. Pic related is a mansion
>>181695961Hey dumbass, we're talking relativistic here. For Tokyo the house presented is quite huge considering how fucking dense the megacity is and the huge cost of land.
>>181695961>for a densely populated areaReading comprehension ain't your forte is it?In San Francisco that would be way out of reach for a majority of families.
>>181675935No they don't.
>>181675935>that's a mansionI'm rich and didn't even knew
>>181696235>>181696428Nah still tiny. You can find mansions in NY which is the most densely populated place in the US 2-3x bigger than the “mansions” in Tokyo.
>>181677024There's no true poverty in Japan. Hobos are mentally ill and drug addicts.Unlike Europe and the U.S. Japanese "poor" are well fed. The reason why they're considered poor is due to insane rent costs
best anime poor house
>>181675935kaichou wa maid-sama
>>181677254Not the only one. But yes, Americans don't do that. They focus on exaggerating the freedoms of their fictional characters.
>>181677482I bet you call everyone who doesn't live in a decommissioned trailer "rich".
>>181675935Every room is like 3m2
Most anime characters and mid to upper middle class. There are plenty of less well off characters as well.
Tokyo isn't even that expensive if you don't want to live in the middle of Shinjuku or the expensive part of Ginza.Just go a little South from Shinjuku and apartments in Yoyogi are payable. Got a rent house in Itabashi which was only 10min away from Ikebukuro with the train - which even included a garage. And we already talking about 50m2 in one of the busiest metropolis in the world. But unlike New York and other cities there isnt really a lobby which stops the building of new homes but Tokyo builds new homes left and right.
>>181698495>isn't even that expensiveGimme a number.
>>181677024Pic related plus eating bean sprouts every day. That's comically extreme poverty in Japan.
>>181677777>Most of the urban areas are spacious so there's no real house issues.WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU
>>181698599For a solid 40-50m2 apartment in Itabashi which is still pretty central for Tokyo you are paying 120k-200k.If you are moving to the outskirts then it isnt even half of that. You can also save alot of money if you don't check the English speaking services but the Japanese ones.
>>181698495>we already talking about 50m2Jesus. Nips are packed like sardines.My house is 850m2 and it feels so small
>>181698763Your house isn't in the middle of New York I guess.But you can get houses for free in Japan (if you are Japanese of course) if you move to the rural areas.
>>181686483>tfw you know there is atleast one other person who has no goals or dreams and is just existingI seriously want to go and marry that girl and bring her to an orthodontist. Then retire to the countryside with her and fuck her till my dick falls off or her pussy dissolves
>>181684348this, fuck poor people
>>181698763>Small for 850m2Is your bathroom a whole floor?
>>1816864837000€/m² is very cheap for city centre location. Is something wrong with those apartments? Or is Tokyo that cheap in general?
>>181699161There is no lobbying which stops new home building projects because it could negatively affect quadratmeter prices.Tokyo builds like crazy
>>181695961iirc, US's property area per $ tend to be around 4 times that of Japan's, with buying power adjusted accordingly.
>>181698495>50m2Well, that sounds a little bit small, but for renting a house it sounds like a good idea. BTW I am renting an room of 22m2. My parents' house is around 80m2.
>>181676830>self-insert wish fulfillmentThese accusations are exclusively leveled by insecure people who struggle to imagine engaging with the world in a way that doesn't involve centering their self-image in whatever they're doing. "No one is capable of simply appreciating a character in the context of the story; they must, like me, be consumed with how the positive traits the character embodies are lacking in myself"
>>181699234You are not getting American suburbs houses in Tokyo. But compare Tokyo with any big cities and the prices are absolutely alright, way better than London, New York or Paris.
>>181677334That's a solidly upper middle class home if located in a desirable major metro suburb
What is the point of getting in the tub if you wash yourself using soap and the showerhead?I do not understand.
>>181699538It's a quality of life thing
>>181699538Bathes are for relaxation. You wouldn't go to a pool to wash yourself, would you?
>>181675935You are looking at $2-3 million worth of property... if it's anywhere near a Tokyo suburb.
>>181699538Ever been in a hotel where you take a shower in the tub because there's no seperate shower room?
How many anime even plays in the middle of Tokyo? Most are either outskirts of Tokyo or in some random city.KyoAni anime all play somewhere in the Kyoto area where apartments and houses are pretty cheap. Even Osaka isn't really expensive.
>>181699645>Ever been in a hotelWhere do you think you are?
Only inferior westerners is forced to live in tiny cardboard boxes. Japan, due it's great and noble culture ensure the best possible life even for the poor
>>181689568it's not hard anon...
>>181676830self-respect and self-inserting are mutually exclusive, though
>>1816770243 Gatsu no Lion. Though that situation might put them slightly above the poverty line I don't; remember.
>>181688061Not him but how do nips clean their assholes properly if they are always sitting in that stool? Everyone in bath houses are always seated while rinsing themselves off before getting into the tub.
>>181699928Google Japanese toilet.
>>181699928By leaning slightly forward or backward
>>181687648Sit on the seat and use the shower to wash yourself while running the bath. Once clean, get into the back to soak. Families will use the same bath water and men will usually shower/bath before women. This is where that thing in anime comes from about girls being embarrassed to go first (because the guy will get the girl soaked bath water). When I lived in Japan I just showered in the bath because it was fast. Running bath took way too much time and I cbf waiting for the bath to run.That being said, Japanese bath houses are incredible.
>>181699928By not being retarded.
>>181698609bean sprouts is good though i buy them from 99 ranch
>>181699928Unlike you westerners, they clean themselves when they use a toilet.
>>181699645I do this every day, I just stand in the tub
>>181699986>>181700253But not every single jap has access to a bidet style toilet. I have seen examples in anime and irl where that isn't the case such as the use of the squat toilet or even just a regular setup without the bidet.
>>181700253I can't speak for Amerilards but most people in the UK have a bidet, pinoy.
>>181700419Every toilet has a bidet in Japan What is common in Japan are toilets where the bidet is included into the flush part thingy of the toilet So if you are finished with the toilet you are cleaning your hands and the used water is also used to flush the toilet.
>>181697714what the hell are you talking aboutthe only "mansions" you'd find here in NY are either somewhere deep in the rich parts of the outer boroughs, like riverdale in the Bronx or brooklyn heights, and these are still in the $5-10 million range at the very leastif you want a loft in manhattan it's at least double that.
>>181700570See that thing behind the girl
>>181699772The MC of this thread.
>>181699645I once took a bath in a hotel on mushrooms, felt like i was in the ocean
>>181700116>when I lived in Japan I just showeredAnon, you better not be furthering the stereotype that westerners are smelly.
>>181675935I actually remember a Japanese twitter post about this. Apparently back in the early 80s, this wasn't very unbelievable, but housing became more expensive and anime didn't really change alongside it until very recently, when most shows started taking place outside of downtown Tokyo proper.
>>181700116>>181701189Baths are just massive waste of time and clean water, for no real purpose. Shower and soap is all you need to stay clean.
>>181701290Non Asians smells like shit.
>>181701420Showering actually can use more water. Showering uses 18l per minutes. So a 10min shower can use more water than filling a normal tube.
Japan has pretty significant poverty. You don't see much of it because the government has a fairly active policy of allowing slums and tiny SROs in out-of-sight areas. You're not technically homeless if you have a permanent shanty or rented closet.
>>181699928How can you live without this? it makes no sense to me.
>>181701541>out of sightYou can see homeless people in every larger station in Tokyo and parks. Though they will never annoy people for money and are moving somewhere else where the rush hour begins. In fact there are many parks where they take care of cats.I saw many of them in Ikebukuro and in that one park close to Sunshinecity 60
>>181701509>Showering uses 18l per minutesThat depends a lot on the type of showerhead and how open you set it. Of course you can waste any amount of water if you're stupid about it.Wet yourself, turn the shower off while you apply soap, shampoo, etc, then rinse, done. The water shouldn't be running for more than two minutes altogether.
>>181701618Where does the shit go? And who wants a cold shower on their balls?
>>181701618Anon i use a bidet shower (the handheld faucet thing mounted on walls), but many places public and tourist areas of japan only have the squat toilet which doesn't have a bidet or a washlet.
>>181701678I don't mean the people themselves, I mean where they sleep and keep their stuff. In the U.S. you'll sometimes get people sleeping in public surrounded by their belongings, because the police don't let them stay anywhere permanently.
>>181701912you dont shit there anon
>>181693355Because shes a small girl
>>181702189She's a tengu
It's just that japanese are super small, so normal houses look gigantic to them
>>181701618I stick my finger up my ass to get rid off the excess shit.
>>181701965>bidet shower (the handheld faucet thing mounted on wallsI just watched a video about it cause it seem uncomfortable to use but it doesn't look bad as long as it has pressurehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2SfQuu9a80
>>181677024watch im@s, yayoi is poor
>>181702436Also except Maki, everyone in LL lived rather normal. Nico was even a poorfag.
>>181699098It's thanks to those poor people that you can sit on your high horse and live comfortably. You profit from their suffering.
>>181700570Thats a sink, not a bidet
>>181702188Sweet summer child. Westerners shit in the bidet all the time. And they're mighty proud of that 'culture'. In their homelands they shit literally everywhere, even on their kitchen tables. Ever heard of Paris syndrome? That's what happens when the romanticised ideas of mysterious western 'culture' meet the cruel reality of a stinking shithole.
>>181677024That dude who lives in a trailer or some shit in that anime commie once changed the opening to a rap song. "They see me rollin'n"

>>181703623No amazonNo or slow internet
>>181699538It's a hottub, not a bath tub.You clean yourself before getting in because the whole house takes turns soaking in it and it would be a waste of water to drain and re-fill it each time
>>181703623Not so much rural but in the mountain side with no one there.
>>181699928Their assholes are always clean because bidets, but there's a cool moce with the washcloth they do where they floss their ass with a slap of the cloth

>>181677777Well, can't argue with those digits. Congratulations, Tokyo.
>>181697714You've missed the entire point of the thread you stupid fuck. A house like the one toured in >>181688258 is 400k + USD. Compare that to the house pictured in OP, note that it takes substantially more terrain, and you've got the question: Are almost all anime characters super rich?to which the answer is no, just like Americans, they live in debt.

>>181687648You basically take a shower/scrub off before using the bath.desu no one who isn't reasonably well-heeled does this much anymore. Even tiny-ass Nips can't really relax in a poorfag tier apartment with a bath (which REAL poverty-tier apartments don't have- you use public baths).
>>181675935That house is probably somewhere around 1.5 Million USD easy if in tokyo
>>181707008>which REAL poverty-tier apartments don't have- you use public baths... which you still have to scrub yourself before getting intoThis is why they don't like westerners in them

>>181693355nah, it sucks. Most Japanese apartment buildings suck shit and have no insulation, or heat.You're basically sleeping in a stale smelling closet having to rely on cheap heaters or fans because the lack of insulation means your apartment is always the wrong temperature. Futons are not comfortable and the only people who use them are either poor or weirdo nationalists who insist on shit like tatami-mat floors and the like because they don't like western furniture.The entry level family homes are pretty comfy though IMO- and waste a lot less space than most western designs if they don't tend to have the same problem of no central air or heat.
>>181707226>have no insulationThis. It really won't be all that cold out (got down to around 2C when I visited) and you''l be fucking freezing inside.
>>181693355>no AC swamp cooler at best in summer months>shit insulation in winter>can literally hear anything that happens next to you>worried if you can pay your prefectures tax + Japanese tax>only way to get around is train system not fully cheap>veggies and fruits to properly feed yourself expensiveThe post you are replying to is a normal studio apartment, probably around 700-800 USD/mo which is easy to find in america. That isn't close to japanese poor, for closer things go to Gaijin pot or the like, look at the 10mx12m places, that are shared bathrooms/shower closest in the halls, room has maybe a sink + stove + mini fridge
>>181707383Yeah. I was there for a little over a year as an exchange student in high school and basically it felt like no building had adequate insulation.But at the same time the Japanese are such pussies about it being too hot or cold. I'm from the rural midwest so I'm used to summers that can hit 100F+ (~38C) to -20F (-28C). I'd be out in like 40-50F weather (which is perfectly comfortable for most people where I'm from) without a coat and my classmates and complete strangers would think I was going to freeze to death. Then in the summer I'm walking around in jeans in 90F weather and everyone looks like they're gonna melt.And this is from the same people who for some reason will proudly talk about how Japan experiences all for seasons.
>>181707629>100F+>MidwestLet me guess, SE MI or Chicago?And you're absolutelyright about tolerance to the temperature.

>>181707008>You basically take a shower/scrub off before using the bath.But If I do that all the hot water is gone. I do it in the reverse order, hot bath followed by slightly warm shower.

>>181678071around 140k in texas in any of the major citys.
>>181707699Bit further south than that, but yeah basically thereabouts since that whole area basically does the whole thing where you can have a summer where it hits 100+F and a winter that hits -20F or lower (we had a week a few years back where it hit -50F with windchill).We have a lot of high school exchange students and foreign university students where I live and it's hilarious watching them experience their first summers and winters here.I was on the bus with a QT Japanese girl here last year and it was the first good snow and it was near 0F and we were talking about the weather. "It so cold! Lucky it doesn't get worse right?" and I said, "Actually it gets a lot colder than this, winter basically is just starting." She said "Ohhhh Nooooooooooooo". It was pretty cute. I hope she didn't freeze to death because she rode regularly and was dressed up like an Eskimo at like 30F.

>>181677024Japan has ~5000 homeless people, 97% of them are men. San Francisco has ~7000.San Francisco has ~900K population total. For every 1000 people, there's 7.7 homeless in San Francisco. Japan has 126 M people. Their rate is 1 homeless every 25,000.US has ~1.5 M homeless and 325M people total. In other words, 1 out of every 200 people in the US is homeless.Japanese poverty is almost invisible at this rate.
Japs are total fucking retards when it comes to modern architecture.They should stick to their wooden shacks with paper walls.
>>181708102homelessness is only one aspect of povertythough it would be interesting to see how japan deals with it (besides just not counting vagrants)
>>181708135What am I looking at? A hotswappable PSU?

>>181694066people are also poor because they lack knowledge or access
>>181708102>>181708169>Japanese poverty is almost invisible at this rate.I meant to say Japanese homelessness.But you're right, homelessness is just one extreme aspect but atleast they're doing something great about that extreme end. The actual poverty of bein unable to afford the basic needs like food/shelter/utilities would probably be much higher and similar to other developed countries. >food/shelter/utilities>shelterYes, I mean there are whole swathes of people using those tiny internet cafes as their sleeping arrangement after work, it might as well be poverty at this point. Hard numbers might be hard to come by but we know such cases exist, although not sure if the cases are blown out of proportion or not.

Unless you classify the villages they make as no longer "homeless" okay, but there is a big homeless issue in japan. They fuck all over Ueno and Tokyo Station all the time. Seeing homeless in tokyo is not a hard thing at all
>>181708841as far as I know the "stick it in" method is frowned upon thereI legit wasn't a weeb in high school. I took Japanese because Spanish and German sounded boring and I really enjoyed it. I watched some anime but I didn't actually get into regularly following/caring about it until I started college and cultural knowledge was mostly the very base-level stuff regarding politeness levels in speech and basic manners. I was pretty dumb desu- she gave me some really nice chocolates on valentine's day and I didn't think anything of it.
>>181708804but their cocks are exponentially bigger
>>181708102https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/07/14/national/social-issues/number-homeless-japan-falls-15-year-low-5000/>The ministry noted, however, that the actual number could be higher because the survey was based on informal observations. A homeless person would not have been included, for example, if he or she was elsewhere when officials strolled by to scan the parks and train stations.Your numbers are beyond useless, they just scanned a few places and took numbers at parks and train-stations. Holy shit they didn't even try.

>>181677024Surprised no one mentioned Punpun
>>181709314They got it through informal counting measures, based off some parks and train stops. They didn't even try to look that hard, they just wanted a low number. It is way higher than 5000.
>>181709075Now I just want to go to japan to watch people be shocked at my height
>>181709370Its all estimates everywhere. They've been doing those estimates ever since they started keeping records. >>181708913See >>181709056Tokyo has estimated to be ~1200.

>>181709589It's less being visibly shocked and more like you'll have this big bubble of personal space around you because they won't go near you. It actually owns pretty hard if you live there because you'll have space on the trains and in public.
>>181688466Kek Fucking behemouth
>>181677024Dunno, but I often see how they use the same water others used to bath, that's pretty gross.
>>181709297not that old. that would put them in their 90s
>>181675935I hope OP (and other delusional weebs) realise that this is no different than your average American TV sitcom where despite being on some low wage job the main character/s still manage to live in a desirable location, relatively spacious penthouse or flat in the city.
>>181708742>she's probably 19-20 at the oldestShould've given her the D.
>>181709614All via informal gathering of information, it's not accurate. Japan does this shit all the time to make things sound good and happy. They admit they didn't even look that hard outside parks and stations. Japan is huge seems like they just went to like a few main cities, not a country wide count. It is way higher and you would know if you work there.
>>181709729>Scrub yourself before entering the bathtubBut I'm scrubbing and washing in the shower afterwards
>>181709614>Nagasaki — reported no homeless people.This is bullshit to anyone who has been there ever, there is a huge homeless problem in many of the mountains where they tend to build their camps and towns.
>>181710301Estimates are by definition not accurate. They are close approximations.If you plan on accusing the Japanese government of coverup for something like this, make some evidence of what the actual numbers are, not some bullshit.
>>181701832>turn the shower off
>>181708551I'm not familiar with those, I'm not saying they don't exist but it's not like "male MC who succeeds = WISH FULFILLMENT FANTASY COPE FOR YOUR BETA LIFE"
>>181710475>close approximations.Not even, Japan classifies shanty towns as a "home", same with people who occupy abandoned buildings. The Soup mission at the south end of Ginza is always filled with hundreds of homeless, why don't they count actual visitors to places like those? Oh because it would be easily 10x higher. Seeing tent villages, or small towns built out of spare plywood and doors is not too uncommon once you go a bit off the main paths. Japan is doing a good active amount to decrease the homeless problem but it's pretty damn up there.
>>181710453Maybe just Yuru Camp fans
>>181710062America tv is full of bullshit
>>181710698Nah, this can technically be considered a "home", thus the person is not homeless! checkmate homeless numbers!
>>181710745Higher building standards than your common US house.
>>181710745That actually looks like something our city hipsters would eat up.
>>181710777>when a Japanese hobo is higher skilled than an American worker
>>181710777True. A tarp is on par with asphalt shingles for a roof at the very least.
>>181710777>>181710807Point is shit like this is common in japan for them to bend rules and make things seem far better than the depressed hell mega cities like Tokyo, Nagoya, and others are. That or some poor lad loses his job and apartment and then just goes and offs himself.
>>181675935This is something I liked about kobayashi. They lived in modest apartments.
>>181710691If you have source that says homess count by the national health/welfare include shanty towns as homes, then show proof.
>>181677024From what I remember the government gives the homeless boxes and classifies them as houses to help their population numbers. They also mark most any unexplained death as a suicide; because suicide looks better than murder on paper. Then there are vans that will kidnap homeless off the street and drop them off deep in the mountains. I remember a couple years ago where someone was posting images of it. One man's foot was black and half of it had busted off.
Maybe they have problems counting homeless people because Japanese all look the same
>>181677781I mean, if you don't mind clean water, bugs, insects, mice and access to the net and other commodities then yeah, rural poverty can be comfy
>>181710519That's the way you do it when on a boat. Why would you want water running while you're lathering yourself up? Overall you should use no more than three minutes of running water.
>>181710777You've never lived in a Japanese apartment or house if you think US standards are low.
>>181711394I'm not in a boat.
>>181711856But you're also not in the Great Lakes. Learn to save water, fucker.

>>181711924I get well water so I don't even pay a water bill. I might just go to sleep and forget to turn off the sink. However I won't because the pump for the water needs electricity which does cost me money.

>>181715104Atlantis era, so good they had to destroy it.

>>181715538You know as well as I do that Atlantis had to deal with a significantly lower population. They fell due to the environment being unable to support them. Something we're long past.

Be honest, /a/, how small was your first apartment?>600$/mo. (CAD)>just over 300 square feetIt was pretty comfy, though. Had a small washroom with the necessities (toilet with bidet, sink, bath/shower combo), small kitchen with apartment-sized appliances (small oven/stove, small fridge, small microwave (above stove), small sink) and not a lot of counter space (enough for a kettle and toaster, and to do some cutting), but it had this nice "open" concept to it, a small balcony (with a laundry tree insert, even), and a nice big window.Only thing that sucked was the window didn't open, and the lighting situation. No ceiling lights, and the outlets were oddly spaced. Would up getting a decent table and desk lamp.My "bedroom" was a hide-a-bed couch, with a little room partition. Had a small coffee table and a small TV, which moved out of the way no problem. And in the last little corner I had my desk. Small table in he "kitchen", should add.Pretty poverty-tier apartment, really. But at least it was cheap, and I managed to save up and buy a house.
>>181711924>Literally live on the great lakes Get fucked. Water conservation is a meme outside of hellholes
>>181718876750/mo USD 800 square feet. In an apartment just outside of town so very good area. I have no idea why it's this cheap
>>181708443I used to have one of those, or something like it. Little washing machine that plugged into a standard wall outlet and the sink. Was okay living alone, but it couldn't do a whole week's worth of clothes; you'd need to run it every few days.

>>181686483>no smoking>smokes anyway
>>181675935Most actually live in apartments, though.
>>181710640i'm not saying that a male character succeeding is wish fulfillment, you made that accusation yourself. I'm saying that when a character has no real positive qualities, is a fucking geek that is described as "an everyday kid," isn't particularly attractive, and can't talk to girls properly, and then suddenly gets a harem of cute girls that want his dick, that's when you enter the realm of wish fulfillment. That's stuff like Highschool DxD, Eromanga Sensei, and OreImou. Stuff like Bleach, Yu Yu Hakusho, etc. that have actually definable character traits that might make them desirable, are not wish fulfillment.
>>181722444No, that's clearly a "smoking allowed" shelter. Plenty of those around.
>>181688185You literally get used to it, there was an study that determined that traditional sitting is really bad for your whole body though.
>>181698260Have you watched a TV sitcom? You always see some waitress who apparently can afford a spacious New York penthouse.The real-world reason is because it's easier to stage a scene when you have open space. Even animated shows like the Simpsons have to cheat for the floor plan to not interfere with a comfortable frame.
>>181723399What did you expect? What's more poverty than prostituting your adopted son?
>>181693355Reminds me of this one anime series that centered around six girls of different ages all going to same class in this country school. It was so charming and comfy looking. Someone posted the real life pictures of the place that inspired the animators and yeah, it was a poor ass country school that looked really sad.

People in the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s all believed that now was better than any other time in the past because obviously they were doing something right.You could easily argue that one of the worst periods in American history (the Great Depression) was the result of capitalism failing and the effects were widespread. There's nothing preventing us from having another massive economic depression too because capitalism is prone to boom-bust cycles and if you're really unlucky they can cause chain reactions that blow up the economic well-being across the world.Attributing it all to capitalism would be remarkably silly. People in China believe that China is the reason why the world is in such a great state right now and would you be inclined to believe them? Can you name a period in human history that was better than the time before China became a super power?

>>181722435There are no jobs and few services in those beautiful rural areas. You'd be living in a dying down with a bunch of old people.

>>181725303It is ridiculous shame. Countryside is beautiful, but no one wants to live there. Almost bought a minka as I was teleworking for a western company.
>>181725506What are your complaints?
Let's play a game /a/.How much do you think that his house in Kamakura, Japan costs (in USD)?
>>181725805>Kamakura, JapanThree story. No number of rooms or their tatami size. Kind of old looking but depending where you live you can get a lot of mildew and it could just be some rust stains that could be cleaned.$300k to $500k tops as I think you can get better for $500k in that area unless it is a lot bigger than it appears.
>>181726069Nope. Almost $1.4 million. The inside is much nicer.>https://www.jamesedition.com/real_estate/kamakura-japan/villa-kamakura-10406642
>>181699917I hope you aren't talking about Kiriyama. He makes a good bit more than the average wageslave in Japan does. And the sisters have an actual house and their grandfather seems to do decent business with his sweetshop. Or at least good enough to support 3 kids comfortably.
>>181726369And 138 sqm. "Villa." Heh. It is sitting really close to the beach which may be the big part of that price.
>>181726650Anybody that has the $1m+ to buy that property is going to bulldoze that house and build something better.
>>181675935outside Tokyo just normal houses, watch anime set in Tokyo and they very likely have small houses or flats
I have to hand it to the Japanese, their mid-size apartments are comfy as fuck and I wish they'd adopt them over here. Those practical kitchens, balconies where you can dry laundry, reasonable small appliances, the general layout, you name it.Especially the kitchen situation. Nothing's worse than a small North American apartment with a North American kitchen shoved into it, eating up more than half the floor space. What's even the point of having a gigantic fridge, huge stove and oven, and the like if you can barely fit three people into your place comfortably?
>>181704237>whole house takes turns soaking in itThat's the kind of gross part to me. Like I understand everyone showers off the dirt first but still I'm sure you end up finding stray pubes floating in the bath water when you're the 4th in line to use it.
My biggest problem with jap houses is the really boring architecture the vast majority of them have.Too many boxes, not enough windows.
>>181688185I hope you realize that most people are able to do that shit from birth. Its just that Americans ruin their knees because they literally never fold them.
>>181728969Not a problem for a culture literally formed around inordinate amounts of courtesy, wherein vigorous cleansing and grooming would be a prerequisite for others to gain trust that the social norms were being followed. Now, the western sauna culture, people all simultaneously removing their clothing to plop themselves unceremoniously into a communal vat of heated dermal matter and shared body fluids, that's a problem.
>>181729405I don't know man do you really think every japanese makes sure there isn't a hair out of place before every bath?
why am i so poor, why
>>181729494Because you're lazy. Work multiple jobs, live in a shitty apartment, go to school, get a better job, save up, and buy a nice house outside the city. It's not hard.
>>181687648Unlike western barbarians, Japanese takes more care in shedding loose skin while sitting down with a handheld shower
>>181729455The worst at it is very likely always the last to get in the bath, presumed to be the careless type school-aged male, if my manga is remotely accurate.
>>181677024Single room apartments. Read the Gantz story about the little kid and you'll see what most poor Japs live in. Gantz was shockingly realistic on what life was like outside the aliens.
>>181726069>>181726369Kamakura is a highly touristic city with temples, shrines, sea, former capital of japan, at a living distance from Tokyo by Japanese standards, and overall a great place. No surprise for me
>>181728969When it comes down to it, it's really not much different from a public pool. Except you can be sure that no random kid pissed into it.
>>181725303Im aware, i will love to do rural stuff and have a nice desconnected life, a big house with a cow as pet, a huntsman waiting in my bed, an arranged marriage with a 13yr old, looking at the stars every night, working in the rice fields. oh lord that lifestyle sure fits me.maybe having another not so dead town 30' minutes away to buy groceries would be cool too.
r8 my work station
>>181698495NYC is a total trash heap, as are most coastal US cities. WTF are they even doing there
>>181723465If I recall correctly, that the school was to be abandoned is what lead to the manga being set there; the mangaka could sketch all day from a real-life subject to get that nostalgia vibe he was shooting for.
>>181725506That's the brand I wash my ass with. One of the best.
>>181730066Made me remember that the other day i was reading about something called "Kodokushi" (basically old people dying and not being discovered after long periods of time). Elder people, specially men live a shitty solitary life after they retire.
