Why does it 'have' to be high-school students? Do nips not go to college?
muh self insertion
>Do nips not go to college?
not the ones who watch anime
Why do nips have to be so autistic about their self-insertion? I would love to see a solid show about college life
Isn't High School usually remembered as something akin to golden years to some Japanese?
College seems to put you into work mode at that point. Self insertion has to work wonders.
>Isn't High School usually remembered as something akin to golden years to some Japanese?
The same thing could be said of Americans and we still have plenty of shows about college. Do the japanese have any live action shows about college? also
>not posting neko
come on man we had a thing going
Actually, if I don't remember wrong on a thread years ago we discussed that the reason they did Highschool settings was to remember when it didn't get so stressed and shit. College is too stresseful and they don't have any real happy moments about it, as a matter of fact some of them even kill themselves for not getting into college.
They do go college/university of course. But usually Highschool is more relatable, because most of the Japanese population did go to compulsory education at some point in their life. (Highschool is not compulsory in Japan, but most people go anyway, because why the fuck not)
Where's college, only 40% of the population did.
>they're all 18
There is very little to no social life at my college. Everyone goes to class and goes home, few stay to study at the library, clubs are mostly limited to sports
I have no idea how you could make an anime about that
but I'd watch it
this is seriously what it is. In most countries, college students are considered professionals. American students who wear fedoras and group together in the cafeteria of their local community college, screaming about anime are an anomaly.
The real reason, OP, is that finding a pure, virginial college girl is much harder than finding a virgin high schooler. It's also past the point at which having a loli in the cast is even slightly plausible
artcollege in Honey and Clover and they all get jobs afterward.
And it doesn't help that most Japanese people that DID go, think it's pretty uneventful point of your life. You just study and go to some parties (like 花見 [Hanami] at spring) in the first 3 years.
And the last one is all about job hunting and job fairs, so there's that.
College is boring.
Everyone is split up into their own little friendship groups and people give no fucks about one another.
Sure, high-school also had friendship groups, but nothing as extreme as college.
speaking of college, as >>120913047
pointed out, college is so lonely I would not mind being picked on to my face but everyone acts so polite. everyone acts really unnatural, actually. is it weird to not want to make friends in college at all?
>but everyone acts so polite. everyone acts really unnatural
It's either that or they act like complete spergs.
And if you don't live on campus, you're pretty much fucked when it comes to social life.
I realize that, I wasn't complaining. I generally don't have time for anything besides studying and procrastinating more studying anyway
Friends aren't made in college, just acquaintances.
Also not anime so I'm going to stop replying
It does all of your contact building for you, makes you more likely to receive some scholarships and looks great on a resume. I was invited to a fraternity for good grades but I've yet to do anything with it... they keep sending me e-mails about events and volunteer opportunities though
That is not true. I think that college/university is actually your "last" chance to make actual true friends.
It's when you hear someone in your lecture brag about how they browsed reddit for the whole night, or some American girl starts talking to you about how 4chan is a terrible place full of lolis while you try to feign ignorance, and then she tells you how well her boyfriend fucked her last night or who her favourite pornstar is, you kinda just lose all your desire to socialise with the people in your uni.
Don't know, don't care.
Nah, I don't think that's the case.
Anyway, that's enough of my fascinating blog posts for today.
>tfw roomed with two girls who are in education and were both 3rd years
>first houseparty with them all anyone does is talk about sex
College men and women have absolutely no shame, seriously.
I wouldn't be surprised if it was. The people who will have successful careers don't have time for others, and even some of the ones who don't may just be getting high all day in their dorms. Not to mention I see my fair share of neckbeards and tumblrettes just walking around on campus. I'm actually a little surprised how many obvious losers there are. Wouldn't be surprised if it was even more true in Japan
I have experienced it the other way around. While in high-school most students learn seriously to get into a good university. After they managed to do so they basically experience freedom for the first time in their life and become quite childish, always giggling like little faggots. Just my two cents after one semester abroad.
A few tries hard, everybody else is fucking around while trying to get good grades without working too much (or just work just enough to pass).
Everyone knows that, once you graduate, you'll lose a great part of the freedom you have in college but, since you can't stay in college eternally, they try to enjoy their current life as much as possible before falling in the white collar life.
It's the opposite in Japan, though. In high school most people study super hard to get into a good university, because in Japan, graduating from a good university means getting a better job. University itself is rather relaxed (except for people who major in hard sciences and/or want to pursue an academic career, also last year most people are really busy with job hunting) and it's pretty much the most free time you will have in your life.
Because in Japanese college, everyone is busy getting wasted at the local izakaya, dicking around with their circle members, and trying to fuck girls in other circles.
Somewhat like American college, but on a larger scale because all the difficulty of Japanese college comes from entering the college while for American colleges, that difficulty is distributed throughout your student life.
Japanese students tend to walk into class with a hangover on the day of an exam, write down some bullshit that makes no sense, and the professors give them a bare minimum pass and they eventually go onto become salarymen working shitty jobs that they could easily be replaced at while being fucked by senior management who have been at the company for years.
As such, high school is the last time in which the rose-colored innocence of life is burning brightly in their hearts. It's a fond place for Japanese people despite the reality being going to cram school every night because everyone else is doing it.
tfw living in asian country with anime culture being acceptable
tfw a part of irl genshiken, with more alcohol and romance
tfw expanded my social circle in the cosplay scene nationwide
>people who have successful careers don't have time for others
Yeah, but those who actually set their time for others would have more connections leading to endless possibilities and even more successful career.
High school was when you had the most time.
So high school student characters are great. They're well developed enough to be interesting characters, they have all the fucking free time in the world the perfect easy template for easy writing.
As non american here everyone at third year at my uni are friendly with each other and I do not mean polite stranger friendly. There is only 40 people left at our major and we just been through too many (failed) exams, studying sessions, event, parties, meetings, project etc. not to have some common grounds with everybody.
That barely matters in anime, you can draw cute girls and assign them almost any age you want. Or in the case of VNs, unspecified age of 18+, which doesn't ever get mentioned in the actual VN and all ages between characters are only expressed in relative terms.
>tfw a part of irl genshiken, with more alcohol and romance

Sorry, the only thing I can read here is
>I'm a massive weeaboo loser
You make sense. As you probably inferred from how specific my dig was, I am just bitter.
Which is strange because the people I described would probably make OK friends for someone who posts on /a/.
>And being a cosplaying, con-going weeaboo has never been accepted here.
Neither has blogging. I don't see why being involved with cosplay and all that shit should provoke resistance from you when he's not exactly sperging out about it or being an autistic weeaboo, he's just writing a shitty blog post like the rest of this whole thread.
I fucking hate this shit. My theory is that boring 3DPD resort to it when they want your attention but all they have to talk about is vapid shit. Of course I laugh when some dumb bitch is telling me about how she took a dick up the ass, but that encourages them to talk more without realizing that it just makes me respect them less. Then they get into the habit of thinking "I swallowed a load last night LOL" is an appropriate conversation starter that will catch your attention, since 3DPD are too dense to realize that making a spectacle of their whoredom makes them only superficially interesting in the same way shock videos and wiki articles on serial killers are interesting.
tl;dr just find a good waifu and never talk to 3DPD, it's always a disappointment
Has anyone else encountered girls at college who act friendly at first, then send you a message saying they will never date you? I never think I am being flirty yet this has happened to me more than once. I'm not even looking for a girlfriend, but it makes me feel like a creepy loser every time.
'Some' nips go to college but mangaka sure as shit don't.
I dropped out of college 2 days after move-in day because I had a nervous breakdown. I can't relate to college anime though I don't mind it. High school seems more pure and happy.
>The same thing could be said of Americans
Shitty flicking fluorescent lights with wires hanging out, failure teachers making minimum wage who couldn't bother to sober up for class, gaggles of stoners sprawled out in the middle of the halls playing shitty acoustic music, asbestos flaking down from the ceiling, and clique shit-talking.
If 'those' were your golden years, what a depressing life you lead.
Also posting a neko.
Something like this.
Sounds like self absorbed psycho behavior or you come off as really clingy and weird without realizing it. I gave up on 3DPD in high school though bro. I'm so disillusioned with them that I make it a point to act as curtly as possible when dealing with them now, even when a decent looking one tries talking to me. Imagine what my waifu would think if she knew I were having extended conversations with 3DPG.
I was in a fraternity. It was mostly just an excuse to find other guys that just wanted to get fucked up with you. It also makes it really easy to meet girls, and if, unlike me, you actually give enough of a fuck about your future, you can network with alumni and shit.
Denver. And this was BEFORE weed was legal.
I went to fucking costume parties at least once a month in college. It's the most cosplaying I've ever done in my life.
I am spergy and bad at conversation and I don't even realize what I say until after the fact. I feel good about being able to recognize it afterwards, but that's about it. In a place like college, is it better to be quiet or be socially awkward? because if you're socially awkward you can be eccentric, but if you're silent you're a school shooter.
No you're not, she's already married to me.
For me, it's always been a university is a collection of colleges. The colleges focus on their own generic fields like science, engineering, education, law, medicine, liberal arts, or business while the university is the whole including the not specifically academic facilities.
But I didn't go to a community college where I hear they use the term interchangeably.
I've found it better to be quiet because I'm pretty OK looking and can pretend to be a handsome normalfag who doesn't need to make friends as long as I don't try too hard and drop spaghetti everywhere.
Unfortunately this means that I make no friends because only spergs with annoying personalities share my interests, so I just drink and watch chinese cartoons while secretly loathing both normalfags and openly spergy people.
So I guess I would advise finding other spergy weeaboos to hang out with.
She can be married to two people at once.
Fight to the death.
I'm gonna fuck her sweet asspussy once I take this bitch home.
See, that's how I know you don't deserve her. Kuroneko isn't for fucking, she is for tenderly loving.
Fuck off virgin, you clearly don't realize that kuroneko prefers hard fucking and being mistreated and degraded..
You shut your mouth she is mine.
Yeah but all you get is to see younger people enjoying their last drop of freedom while you're slowly aging and rotting away. Worst, you can never partake in their festivities without it being awkward.
I wonder how she'd react to all this attention.
oh yeah college...I'm in Slovakia
>there are no clubs
>classes are 2 days a week
>there is no campus, just a small building with classrooms
I'm sorry to break it to you two but Ruri Gokou and I were married a long time ago.
Then it might shock you to know that I've been wrecking her cat vagina every time you leave for work.
You shut your fucking mouth right now.
I can't believe someone would go on the internet and tell blatant, insulting lies like that.
You know what else? She spends all the money you give her on me. That's why she's always looking forward to your payday, she wants to buy me all kinds of things to make me happy.
You think this is a joke but I WILL murder you.
I'll help you Anon.
But then I'll murder YOU
Heh. If you kill me kuroneko will get so upset she will leave your dumb ass or even kill herself. You better just let her do what makes her happy.
You don't deserve her and I know for a fact she wouldn't even consider approaching you
We'll go together and be with her forever in Gensokyou
I can think of plenty of anime set at college, you're clearly retarded, or have a woefully low powerlevel in that you only watch the kind of series that /a/ talks about all the time.
Most colleges over here are free. This one's about 1K Eur per semester...I probably save more on living expenses since i get to live home
if you read the novels she doesn't accept money or expensive gifts.
You have no idea how in denial you are. Don't worry, the next stage is acceptance.
She doesn't accept it to use for herself, that's why she spends it all on me.
Kirino I know that's you, you egotistical bitch. But down your laptop and go back to sucking your onii-chan's dick or watching whatever shit series you're into now.
This is a load of shit the only sort of social stuff that people do before college is house parties/drinking down at the park.
At University pubs/bars/clubs, its fucking easy just to talk to people in classes because people have left behind childish teenage pettyness, you are basically forced to live with people, and if all that fails there are 100s of clubs/societies to join even ones full of loner/neckbeards which lurk these boards.
On top of that people are still immature, and if anything exchange students are some of the worst
You browse /a/ faggot, you probably haven't accomplished anything useful and your only form of entertainment is to bitch at others? You're the bigger loser here.
The pot is beyond black.
I refuse to believe that's a boy.
She looks beautiful in everything she wears, especially the outfits she makes on her own.
