Am I the only one that just can't enjoy highschool anime?
I'm sure they look good to people who haven't been at one, but having gone through my countries education system, I just can't see the attraction.
Wanting to join clubs? Piss off, I wanted to get out of there as soon as I could. My extra-curricular activities there were mostly limited to using the gym and studying.
Class rep (or equivilent) being a prestigious place? I took that shit for 3 years and did fuck all so I could get something to put on my CV.
Anyone else get this? How can you anons into escapism when the subject matter is so close to home?
Watch more anime, because there's a lot of series that present those things in a way that meshes with your experience.
I like high school anime because despite growing up on a different continent, my experience in high school was a lot closer to Japanese schools than to anything I've seen in for example American media, even though we generally took it easy and studied less.
have you ever considered highschool is different in japan than where you went?
thats the way im looking at it personally, last time I was in highschool was probably about 10 years ago, student council and stuff was for nerds and losers, extracurriculars were pretty much the same (dnd club lol), sports were more popular. but being in the US; "not giving a fuck" was "cool"
but I think its different in japan and asia where doing good in school is more important than social interaction and student orgs actually have prestige as opposed to being some latchkey thing for kids who cannot into friends by normal means
just think of the class prez or whatever in anime as the head cheerleader or quarterback irl
>gaining nothing from cca activities
Get a load of this egocentric edgy faggot.
I bet you're one of those people who find their everyday lives to be tiresome and 'have to deal with stupid shit' instead of enjoying your life.
Nichibros is probably the closest iteration of a general east asian /a/non highschool lives, if anything.
Have lots of rowdy bros, yet little to no female friends due to awkwardness.
And still a manchild doing stupid shit in highschool.
I never got to go to school so from my perspective you're acting like a little brat.
Wait until one day your life consists of day after day of being alone, just you and your thoughts every single day without any sort of manual labor to provide catharsis for your worried, sleep-deprived mind.
Of course this isn't me, I'm going into college this spring.
Still, please realize that hardship is a blessing meant to bring us back into mental and physical equilibrium and draw us closer to God.
