Were porn mags still a thing in Japan in 2009? Don't they have Internet there?
>>
Porn mags are still a thing.

Japan lives approximately 20~30 years in the past apart from smart phones.
>>
Playboy and penthouse have some good articles i hear.
>>
Japans somewhat of a material culture which is why they have so many little trinkets that come with everything and why collecting manga and books is something a lot of people do.

Also IIRC despite Kanbaru's comment and his own behavior, Koyomi is actually into softcore and the thing he bought in kizu was just a catalog of gravure idols.
>>
>>111571539
It's more a matter of the anime industry being virtually incapable of writing new things.

They've been making porno mag jokes for decades, so instead of changing their writing to reflect modern reality, they just keep writing the same thing over and over
>>
They still make Playboy, anon.
>>
They're just dumb.

Remember when Japan was 10 years ahead of us in the 80s?
>>
>>111571830
No, but I remember when everyone though they were 10 years ahead of us in the 80s.
>>
>>111571539

Yes.

Japanese paper and Japanese printer shits all over digitally over-compressed pictures being output on innacurate LCD/OLED displays ranging from smatphones to cheao monitors
>>
>>111571539
Because then they couldn't do the joke where your imouto / osananajimi finds the dirty magazines under your bed.
>>
Did you forget that every single hentai COMIC you read on sadpanda is a COMIC that got scanned?

Is Koyomi even old enough to buy that shit?

Japan IS ahead of everyone when it comes to infrastructure.


in the 90s they pioneered cellphones with email + internet capability
in the 00s they pioneered mass distribution of high speed internet and leapfrogged America with 100 mbps servce
in the 10s they pioneered mass distribution of 1 gigabit internet at low price
in the next decade they will pioneer 4K UHD as the new TV standard
>>
>>111572389
But when will they learn to the use the Internet for porn?
>>
>>111572389
And korea still has a faster internet service for the average person.

>>111572032
>Is Koyomi even old enough to buy that shit?

You can buy gravure idol & junior idol mags without getting carded.

You only get carded when you buy H-manga and explicit mags and they are located further back and top of the shelves so lil kids don't see or reach for it.

>not 8K
>>
>>111572439

When they use internet to look for AV it's mostly for extreme fetish stuff or uncensored jap-produced AV.

In Japan physical media still rules and will NOT succumb to the tyranny of amazon and google at the expense of publishers
>>
>>111572784

4K is for plebs intending to buy TVs.

8K is exclusive ONLY to movie theaters.

In my HONEST opinion. I don't think we need 4K... what we need is an IMPROVEMENT of the motion resolution of 1080p (higher frame rate) and Bluray-like video/audio bit-rate signal for terrestrial/cable/satbellite TV instead of the over compressed blocky shit we're all getting lately.
>>
>>111572389
The USA's problem with internet infrastructure is partially a result of population density. Not that it can't be better, but a direct comparison with smaller European countries or Japan is silly.
>>
>>111573102
How else are companies going to make you buy a new TV?

really

Pay for it then
>>
>>111573102
Whether on TV or on the internet, the resolution increases are at this point negligible. Everyone's been waving their arms in the air announcing their "HD" 720 or 1080 videos for the past few years, but few have the bitrate to back it up.
>>
>>111573242

You can't buy bluray of live sports coverage.

I watched the FIFA world cup months ago on TV... the over compression applied by ABC, Univision and ESPN (which leads to blocky artifacts) is just terrible if you own a HDTV 50 incher or above.
>>
>>111573447
>You can't buy bluray of live sports coverage.
Good reason being that the content most of the time isn't evergreen.
>>
>>111573273

Japan is one of few places in the world where you get the full potential terrestrial HD signal at (almost) bluray-like bitrate. No wonder fansubbed anime ripped from terrestrial TV looks real good.

There was some pornhub article with statistics and shit that placed Japan in their top 10 visitors.
>>
>>111572032
That's true. They used to publish some great interviews. Even some feminists were published there.
>>
Because it helps if you have a backup if the internet's down or god forbid HD failure in the event you have stuff saved on your comp.

1000/100 has been publicly available here in Sweden for like 3 years now (It's about 80$ per month)

The whole anglosphere is lagging behind in internet speeds for some reason

>in the next decade they will pioneer 4K UHD as the new TV standard

Maybe they should manage 1080p first
>>
>>111571539
Physical ownership is still a big thing in japan, also the guy that wrote this probably had porn mags in his youth.

Whatever, google fiber will save us.

>>111574817
Let's say you live in a large American city such as San Frandisco, Boston or NYC, what's the maximum internet speed you can get and what would it cost?

Not trying to measure dicks or anything, just genuinely curious

I think the fastest provider in my area (San Jose) is Comcast, which is 105 mbps for like $115.
But google fiber will come and save us.

It could be worse. You could live in Canada.

It's not that bad, we at least have the choice of choosing an ISP instead of being stuck with the incumbent.

Of course, the incumbents here are anti-competitive oligopolistic fucks.

also Japan pioneered HDTV in the early 90s
they called their system MUSE (Multiple sub-Nyquist sampling encoding) HiVision

This right here is one of the earliest demonstration of HiVision video (HD) from 1992!

Pretty sure it has to do with Japan and their lack of piracy or low amounts of. Even when it JAVs they prefer physical copies and with magazines being much cheaper for teens, then it makes sense.

here in NYC I get like 25mb/s for $50, but that includes basic cable as well. it's additional $5 to go up to 50mb/s

though I have to remind you that NYC's network infrastructure is old as fuck with few plans to improve any of it.
>>
>>111575206
I get 2 MB/sec down/upload speed in one of the poorer provinces. I'd fax you some of my shit for you to eat, but I fear there would be packet loss once Time Warner or Comcast got a hold of it.
