It's been a while. Who remembers this guy?
Pretty sure this one was the very first one. Kinda nostalgic.
I had an attempt of trying to redraw it some time ago.
Didn't remember this one but just found it in one of my messy folders.
>tfw I don't have the ones by the other artists
Somebody pls post them
Okay, gotta go grab something to eat.
If anybody has some dank idea I can give it a try, need a break from drawing
Star Wars fanart
I mean, he is pretty much dead on.
It's one thing when you have a fantastic setting, you can kinda ignore that (same for fantasy) but for the average high school setting 80% of anime takes place in it does stick out like a sore thumb.
bezcukrowyon that one site everybody hates
At least hime-chan knows what's up
To be honest I don't remember much either, there was the trio of gaijin, hime and glasses, then the tsundere girl, and deliquent, and pretty sure there was a white grill as well
By the way I was talking about gaijin-kun with a friend before, and with him we thought that we should change the setting a bit and instead of an exchange student make GJ a son of an American soldier that got stationed in Japan. Would explain all his cluelessness
I added him papa and mama
>typical suburban mom
Actually I was thinking of a certain actor when I drew him, don't see that much of a similarity between him and Dojima; personality wise I imagine him being more like
that dude from Guilty Crown, you know the one
>tfw no ideas for new strips at all
Have this and goodnight family
freedomto teachers, so their classroom can be their own office and shit. Also lets students go to different classes instead of having to take the same ones with a single class.
Means is that not every kid takes the same classes are everyone else int heir grade, for example in 9th grade I skipped taking an elective (shit like art, Drama etc.) and took Biology whitch is the standard 10th grade Science class.
Wasn't there that one black kid that got sketched out but never introduced. I remember he was a Fresh Prince looking guy named "Danny Gall" because of how that'd be said by a Japanese person
The schooling system was blindly modeled after an assembly line. People made some fixes over the years, but students changing classrooms wasn't hurting anything so it was kept.
Changing classrooms is objectively superior for both students and teachers.
For teachers, it allows them to use the classroom as their personal base of operations which has several advantages.
For students, it avoids the problem of being stuck in a class where you can't make friends (or conversely, where you have too many friends and can't properly concentrate) so you don't end up with the common Japanese situation of being bullied into suicide by your malicious classmates. It also encourages diversified socialization which is a highly valuable skill.
>Gaijin-kun wandering around on his off day
>Stumble upon a middle age man protesting and screaming "WAITOU PIGGU GO HOMU!"
>Gaijin-kun decked him for being racist against white people

In remembrance of:
>New School Term Starts
>New seating arrangements
>Gaijin-kun's desk is at the top right corner of the room beside the window
>"What the fuck man, why do I always get this seat?"
>Ask a random classmate (who is an otaku) and ask if they can exchange seats

>while the other students eat fresh whale meat
>Gaijin-kun encounters thugs threatening a lone cop
>Gaijin-kun pulls out his sidearm and scares the thugs into submission
>The cop calls for backup arrests Gaijin-kun for carrying a firearm
I've only played the first one and I was firmly dissuaded from ever laying eyes on the anime. Did something happen with the sequel? Didn't they make a third? Don't tell me they fucked it all up somehow.
No, those were students that signed up to be soldiers. in VC2 you are literally in highschool and your after school activity to to go fight a war, then back to school the next morning.
>gaijin-kun bumps into some typical yakuza while walking down the street
>they talk about how he hurt their arm so he needs to hand some cash over for the medical bill
>gaijin-kun drops to the ground yelling about his broken arm
>cut to court where gaijin-kun is in a full body cast and is awarded like $100,000 for damages
I'd love for this to become a weekly thing.
>gaijin-kun and tsundere-chan go on a courage test
>gaijin is bored, and tsundere is clinging to him
>glasses dressed as a ghost pops out and tries to scare them
>gaijin pushes tsundere toward glasses and takes off leaving both of them just awkwardly standing there
this is /pol/ tier lingo. At least make it plausible in a certain extend. I'm not dissing your ideas but people gotta know that Gaijin doesn't represent 4chan as a persona. Pressing hardcore stereotype will only cause the story to break away from its natural charisma.
He's not a barbarian, hes just American, American's dont go through haunted houses n shit punching the scarers
>Guy Jean going through test of courage
>His friends jump out in costumes to try and scare him
>"Well at least it's more effort than Halloween Horror Nights"
I think he meant stereotype with reasonable plots, but not trying to exaggerate it beyond fact. All I can refer from the whaling is that, while it's true that the Japanese do hunt whales, but in reality it's only a tiny amount that do. Let alone allowing a high schooler to hunt whale.
I'm going over some old 4koma as I'm brainstorming some ideas at the moment.
>while it's true that the Japanese do hunt whales, but in reality it's only a tiny amount that do
Whale meat is extremely common in Japan and has been a major part of their diet since ancient times. Also it was never said that the class killed the whale, but that they participated in eating it.
as much as I want this to happen, but I don't think no one here will get it since /a/ don't watch 3D nipps.
>Gaijin-kun and his friend decide to eat potato chips
>Gaijin-kun opens the bag (from the top) and sticks his hand in to get some chips

I'm having Honda ask it because I haven't seen whatever show.
>Gaijin-kun is asked why he came to Japan by Honda
>Main girl silently wonders if it's because of some educational thing
>Honda silently wonders if it's because he admires Japanese culture
>Gaijun-kun shrugs "It seemed fun."
Tokoro-san is another international friendly show that interview foreigner too. As for Jdrama, most modern ones are bound to be joke. Only a few that I like are from the old series like 1 litre of tears and the taiga drama series.
>He heard a lot of nerds talking about how a game came out earlier in Japan
>signed up for the program thinking he could get the new CoD early
>"Well Japan is full of those nerds that make video games right?"
>Honda and Main Girl get used to Gaijin-kun calling them by their first names
>They see Gaijin-kun in the main character seat looking somber out the window
>They realize they've been calling him his full name this entire time
>They freak out with guilt while Gaijin-kun thinks about his bullshit small locker
Not him but they aren't really as fun or funny as the originals to me. Adding too many one note jokes to a one note joke done well can stretch it a bit thin. I like the everyman and everywoman of the original two friends as straight men for Guy's oddball to bounce off of.
How does it work in Japan though? In America the main reason for taking classes in different classrooms in High School is because different students have different class choices (like taking French or Spanish) depending on what they intend to study later. Do those choices not exist in Japan? Do they all have to study the same things regardless of what they want to do in college?
Most of the clubs are sports related or have little to do with academics. They're just there because Japanese society imposes them and collleges refuse to accept people that haven't gone to them
>Japan classrooms build a relationship with everyone in there. Vastly superior than American classrooms.
I disagree. American classroom help you uild relationships with everyone, whereas Japanese classrooms seperate you from the friends you had the previous year.
Something that plays on the psychological/tactical element often overblown in anime like one outs or Akagi
>Honda in deep tactical thought about current sports game, showing the current position
>2nd panel honda concludes the dire situation or impossibility of it
>Guy shown hitting the ball, out running or generally brute forcing the situation
>4th panel has honda's reaction, maybe throw in a "NANI!?!?!?" and guy in the background with something like "I'm just hitting the ball"
That doesn't really work though. It's not like Americans wear shoes in their own houses, they just keep them on when they go into other peoples houses.
Oh wait, that could work. School friends come over to visit Guy and they take their shoes off when they come into his host family's house. He'd probably think it was really weird.
>Guy finally gets his hands on some porn
>He complains about it to a buddy at school and said buddy decides to hook him up with superior 2D porn instead
>Brings him an h-manga magazine
>(Guy is a total normalfag)
>Guy returns it the next day without a word and starts avoiding Buddy
>Tells his female acquaintances to be careful around Buddy, since he's secretly a depraved rapist pervert
This one doesn't make sense to me. Americans are used to cicadas, if anything he should be desensitized and annoyed by the NRRRRRWHRRRRR.
Maybe he doesn't get the point to begin with.
>Test of courage
>Monster pops out
>Tsundere screams and clings to Guy Jean
>"Oh, Honda. Can you take this ribbon to the roof for me? Thanks, bro."
I thought it was established that Guy is from New York.
It might work better if he smacked a Giant Hornet or something while everybody else is cowering.
I think you could make something funny
and heartwarmingby having gaijin-kun try to fight/punch somebody that was mean to hime-chan, immediately after saying something hilariously disrespectful (like "wow nice titties" or similar)
I don't think they have options. Everyone has to study the same things, and by "study" I mean "memorize" stuff for the exam and then forget it forever. Japanese schools care less about learning and more about grades
>It's not like Americans wear shoes in their own houses, they just keep them on when they go into other peoples houses.
What is wrong with you americans?
And that is why the Japanese system sucks. You have no choice in what you study, and everyone in a 30-50 person classroom must study the exat same thing at the exact same level regardless of the reality of their abilities
My theory is that we traditionally have dirtier houses so it was acceptable to keep shoes on for that sake.
Alternatively it symbolizes that you feel comfortable in the house which for short visits by people you don't know is awkward.
It's not a big deal if you keep shoes on, but if you're there for a long time they'll usually tell you where to put your shoes since it's assumed you'll take them off.
Is this a real thing people do? I'm in Canada, but I've never once (except maybe as a toddler?) kept my shoes on in someone's house.
You take your shoes off just inside the door, and walk around in socks so you don't track dirt and shit in somebody's house.
How is it you guys manage to be cultivate so many unintuitive traditions when the rest of the world manages to go for sensible options independently? I mean my country had wooden houses and lacked proper sanitization during my grandpa's youth but even then they had the sense not to wear shoes inside the house.
I think this tends to be an immigrant/non immigrant thing
Me and many of my first/second generation immigrant friends always always always take our shoes off when entering our house or someone else's.
But for the longtime Canadians they won't do it
Just recently my housemate's family came over to visit, they've been in Canada for like 4 generations
None of them, not her parents nor her sisters took off their boots when they came into our house, and it's even worse since the bottom floor is completely carpeted.
I wanted to say something but I was grossly outnumbered
How many years has it been since we first added ideas to this? Anyway, I shall propose a few more.
>Main Girl asks Guy how his trip to the public bath went.
>"First they got mad that I was wearing a swimsuit. Then I got in and they got mad that I didn't shower first! There wasn't even a shower! Just some weird faucet thing. It's called a public bath for a reason isn't it?
>Main girl deadpans.
>Glasses-kun and Main Girl decided to go to the mountains and invite Guy and tell him they're Glasses-kun's Dad is taking off work to drive them there.
>Guy: "Why would your Dad do that? I have my license you know. I've been driving for around 2 years now!
>Shows Guy driving on the wrong side of the road, shouting "Get the hell out of the way! You're on the wrong side of the road!" with terrified friends in the background.
>Summer school trip to the Mountains
>Glasses-kun "The weather looks wonderful, it should be around 20 degrees or so there."
>Guy "20 degrees?! In the summer?! If you say so.
>Guy shows up in complete winter gear. "Guys! It DEFINITELY isn't 20 degrees.
Maybe an image of a thermostat to make the joke more apparent.
Needs to be a summer homework one.
>Come back from summer break.
>Someone says they just managed to get all their homework done
>Ask if Guy finished his summer homework
>"Da fuck you talking about."
>"Guy your turn/day to clean up"
>Gets handed broom
>He puts it away in the broom closet

>study abroad in Shanghai (close enough, all a bunch of ching chong shit anyway)
>all day long, this unescapable RRRRRRNNNNNNRRRRRRRRR
>first day I was like 'hey just like my Persona game'
>by the end of the week I was about to murder someone
it's a greentext story
i'm quoting me
I was in Shanghai
Also no one knows how to drive and they shat in the local monuments.
Also the Russians drank a lot. I asked one why he was drinking beer for breakfast, and he said 'because I'm out of vodka.'
They kinda do.
It's been part of their diet since WWII when they didn't have anything to eat and some American general suggested they hunt whales. Noone would hunt whales otherwise since they apparently taste like shit thanks to all that blubber.
He sees those fireman drills the Japanese do and thinks it's secret ninja training like the guy on gainjinsmash did.
The history class lessons finally get to WWII and the Japanese learn that their country was evil as it turns out his dad was a WWII buff.
>switched to beer form Vodka
We got Putin shaking in his boots now boys!
us americans often misunderstand other cultures and are portrayed as dicks, or we're just dicks because we can get away with it.
either way we're dicks on purpose or not.
Looks like the Snowman shoulda trained his oxygen levels better.
That's the joke. Guy jean asks why there's no mention of the holocaust, Pearl Harbour, The rape of Nanking , widespread cannibalism, and various atrocities while the Japanese are shocked at hearing of this for the first time.
I've got another story
>go to Huangpu to see that massive skyline cross the river
>like five Chinese guys want to take a picture with me
>take a bunch of pics with them
>wonder if I just got robbed
>nope everything's fine
>either they thought I was some sort of celebrity
>or they were really excited to have a big tall white guy to take pics with
I've never understood that one.
this is a thing all across china and japan, even more so in the smaller cities and towns
since foreigners are so rare already, and especially because you were big and tall, people want to get a picture with you because of the novelty of your presence.
Another Canada fag here but originally from England and this shit seems weird as fuck to me too. Me and everyone I know takes their shoes off if they're going into someone elses house. The fact that this isn't common practice in some parts of the western world bobbles my mind.
This. Depending on what part of the us you are from, different practices are used. When I lived on a ranch, the house had a small entrance room full of muddy boots it got pretty dirty. In the city, all you walk on is clean pavement so most people didn't care, they'd just vacuum occasionally, and if you did track mud it was considered very rude. My apartment-mates now loosely agree to take our shoes off at the front, but no one cares that much, especially for short trips through the house.
China is an extreme example. Applicants to US grad schools will almost always have near-perfect gre scores from China. They take a special class to master each particular test, memorizing the material just beforehand. Application committees often their out the score before even looking at the candidate. Even their written statements are iffy, they memorize English vocabulary and get it edited, but in practice usually can't put it together well on the fly.
Gaijin-kun said that it's normal to call friends by their first name, then called the dude by his first name. The guy took that to mean that Gaijin considers him a close friend, which is why he's blushing.
Just say something. As an Amerifat, I default to leaving my shoes on (I wear my shoes on in my own house as well unless I'm relaxing), but if literally anyone even half suggests they want me to take off my shoes in their home, I do it.
>Wanting to be in the classes where the niggers and dumbfucks don't wanna participate.
I fucking hated that shit. Put me in the smart kid classes so I don't have to watch the teacher fucking beg for someone to answer a question.
In Japan, last-name-basis is the norm with someone you aren't mid-tier close with. Close friends, family, spouses, no one else.
It probably would have come off better if he forgot the honorific, which means the same thing, but more.
>I mean my country had wooden houses and lacked proper sanitization during my grandpa's youth but even then they had the sense not to wear shoes inside the house.
>lacked proper sanitization
>didn't wear shoes inside the house
I was just reading an article about this, it was about how some elite uni basically had a different standard for east asian students because grades meant nothing, some suspected rampant cheating
>bobbles my mind
But in all seriousness I feel like I've encountered both in equal measure, and I tend to follow along with what others do as to whether or not I take them off. If there's a pile of shoes near the doorway, I do. If everyone else enters with their shoes on, I do too. If people expect you to leave them on you may come off as rude by making yourself too comfortable as a guest, but if you're supposed to take them off you're a dick for tracking dirt and mud inside. It all depends on how the hosts feel about it.
Yes, because I don't want to track two pounds of snow into someone's house, like an asshole.
I'm not an immigrant, basically as white as they come. Me and my friends all take our shoes off (and they're mostly native Canadians too). Maybe it's a class thing (or maybe both?), my parents yelled at me as a kid for walking on the expensive hardwood floors, and now it's ingrained behaviour.
I was going to object to the rapist part, then I remembered how scared and not-into-it all women's dialogue in h-manga is
That's a reasonable assumption for an outsider to make
Happened to me too, except I am a big tall black guy
After the first time it happened, I made a little game with the other black people on the trip to try to catch as many people as possible trying to take our picture from afar.
Being the tallest, I won at a rate of 6 per day.
I have the picture, but I'm not sure about Hime's love letter/locker comic thought. I saw it too but I didn't save it. I hope someone else did.
The most I ever had to do over the summer was summer reading in high school, and even then you got to pick from a list of books. Once school started, you got a deadline for the first paper, which was to be written using your summer reading choice as a primary source.
>he didn't have summer homework
Anyways summer homework in Japan is different, because their summer break is only like 2 weeks. So their homework is literally just extra regular homework to keep them thinking about math or whatever during the break, whereas school homework in the US is usually just to prepare you for the first class, and is usually something like reading a book or researching something small
No kidding, when I was a kid and the doctors were doing some sort of thing on me due to the disease I have my mom heard me screaming and freaked out. I don't know what happened after I came to but I woke up with apologies and candy.
>Gaijin-kun meets typical yakuza
>They try to intimidate him for money
>He clocks one of them in the face, the others jump him
>It cuts to Hime and Honda being introduced to Gaijin-kun's new friends
I love this couple, every video they're so happy, smiling, and laughing.
I wish I had something as genuine as they do.
Like Sendai, where both mountain and beach are close together, bringing more opportunity for plots. We can save the Tokyo and Kyoto as a special trip arc. Tokyo alone is too boring, since most people there won't be surprise of gaijin.
I don't watch many but the ones I have watched are their ones of asking the Japanese girls and guys about the things they'd want to do in America or the types of people they'd like to meet here.
I thought it was kinda funny and surprising at how many Japanese girls wouldn't mind a foreign guy after /a/ has told me so much about japan's animosity to Gaijin.
I also like that they translate it both ways in some videos for nip and english speakers.
>they want us to stay foreign.
Yeah, that's understandable. I don't really like Japan's tendency to overwork themselves, nor their laws on certain things.
I think it'd be an awesome place to visit, don't get me wrong, but I'd never like to live there.
>asking the Japanese girls and guys
This is from Yuta's video, I watch his stuffs too. I can't say much, but most Japanese from the city are general ok with foreigners. I can't say much about places outside though.
It's really debatable, China and Korea have similar mentality. If you are a Gaijin who work in a Japanese branch company you can skip drinking parties and overstay sometime since you can play your "gaijin card"
I love this guy, he teaches them how to swear.
make a plot for this one!!
You probably misunderstood, the majority of Japanese do not hate foreigners, but like >>135816445 says they tend to think it impossible for them to ever integrate. This is very different from countries build on immigration like America.
>says they tend to think it impossible for them to ever integrate.
It saves them from the muslims at least, who genuinely cannot integrate unless they're something like 0.01% of the population.
Yeah we really stood out. A lot. Being tall and pretty much aryan didn't help.
As long as you follow the rules and speak Japanese as much as you can you'll be fine. Visiting you're unlikely to find any issues, its more if you move there or something.
this sound exactly like something from this show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sicy_HqwFt8
The program ask random foreigner at the airport if they can accompany with them on their adventure. Did you get interviewed by any chance?
>Going to see the Mikasa or something?
The story is a bit crazier than that. my coworker used to be in the navy and got married to a japanese national. They had a divorce years ago and he has to go and finally finalize it and wants me to go to help him, "not bash that fucking whore's head in," was how he put it. In exchange I get a tour of all the best "gaijin bars" and we may even get to meet some celebrities he used to know. I'm seriously worried he might call it all off though...
I know how to say very few things, but I have hopes that my coworker will translate for me somewhat, he said I'm on my own if I take a girl home though,
which I will try my hardest to of course.
Went with my school and one of the teachers went for the hell of it. He knew how to say hello, goodbye, thanks, and most importantly
how to order a beer. You should be fine. Enjoy the trip, weird as the circumstances may be.
What the fuck is this? The black guy is the host and he picks up gaijin to follow them for a day in japan?
Or is the black guy a visitor to and he got picked to be a host for that show? How does this work?
It's really nothing to be worry, unless you are in some stranded 3rd world country. I wasn't really lost, just my timing was off and I was too tired to go on. The taxi man drove me to his parent's house nearby and let me stay for the night.
>The taxi man drove me to his parent's house nearby and let me stay for the night.
That was pretty sweet.
If that happened in the country I live you'd be dead and chopped up to pieces by now.
So I was thinking about going to teach English in Japan after I get my degree was wondering if anyone had any advice for something like that. I've already decided that I'm going to be at least self sufficient in the language before I go and I'm not really that big of a weeb (the otaku culture freaked me the fuck out when I went over there last) so I don't think I'd do anything cringy.
Just wondering if anyone had any advice.
>Guy and Hime are eating lunch.
>Hime accidentally takes a sip from Guy's beverage.
>close up of Hime's flushed wide eyed face looking up at him because of indirect kissu
>close up of Guy's face looking confused as shit
>>>/trv/ would be a better place to ask that.but anyway the typical path would be JET (public schools), although there are also eikaiwa companies and programs (private). You're already working on a college degree (doesn't matter what major) which is good, since it's pretty much a requirement anywhere. It's generally not a great idea for a long career but it pays well enough to do for up to a couple years before coming home and getting a more viable career.
Might want to work on your alcohol tolerance.
you best asking this at Gaijin pot forum. you can just study moon as you travel over there. In a way, you don't really have to be sufficient, since you are bound to trial and errors most of the time. You don't have to try to fit in, I'm going say that you will have a hard time living if you do. Just be yourself (but not too much) since they understand that you are a foreigner. Share them your story, culture etc and they'll be drawn to you.
This is was special tournament held for foreigner singers, and he won it. There was this one guy sang so good that it made the nipps cried. I forgot which one.
>Guy and Hime are eating lunch
>Guy accidentally takes a sip from Hime's beverage
>close up of Hime's flushed wide eyed face looking up at him because of indirect kissu
>"Blegh! Backwash! Goddammit!"
They aren't crying, they're orgasming
Easy to mistake the two in Japan
was that Araki at 1:34
It's probably my favorite language to sing in. German and Hebrew consonants get in the way of any held notes often(opera doesn't count, you can't hear the consonants anyway). French is too gooey and makes all the phrases jumble together. Italian and Spanish have an even mix, but I prefer Latin over either of them.
Basically Latin, Japanese and Chinese are my top 3. Korean is a honorable mention
Just want to add in that the Japanese most of time will wait for you to initiate something. (plan, date, request etc) It's their common timid personality around people they think they might have a hard time breaking the ice. So if you want to make friends and have a good time there. Try to be more active. In most cases, you will be the main initiator, while they will be your guide.
I like how slower stuff sounds in Japanese, but I can't stand most of the faster/higher pitched singing that gets put on electronic stuff.
Surprised you don't like French though,
I find french girls like Coeur de Pirate have voice that are pure sex when singing
Listen you fucking fucktard, talking about foreign countries does not mean /pol/, criticizing their systems does not mean /pol/, discussing politics in general does not mean /pol/
Learn what fucking /pol/ means
Try something like Katyusha. Folk songs are fun when getting a feel for other languages.
Its so annoying to hear the super-girly high pitched voice they put on when even the same singer can sound brilliant when singing, for lack of a better word, normally. Not that /a/non but I can't stand Frog either.
These are all of it so far, some are missing.
The last thread was a month ago. Gaijin-kun only pop up on special occasion when the original creator made it or one of the drawfag finish his/her comic. The previous was large so it had a double thread.
Cicadas are rare where I live.
They appear all the fucking time about a half hour away though.
J-rock/punk is the most fun shit
Back when That Dude in the Suede came back from his Mormon mission, he had a promo video with "The Times They Are A Changin" in Japanese, I've never been able to find the actual song, it's p good
>women singing anything
That's not playing fair, you can't just appeal to my dick
Gardiner Sisters are GOAT boner fuel aurally AND visually
>there are people who live in the majority of the country where cicadas aren't present
Honestly I wish we had them where I live, I really like the way it's so easy to convey the feeling of summer in anime just with shit like cicada sounds or closeups of people drinking soda or electric fans blowing and shit.
>The history class lessons finally get to WWII
The history of WWII in a japanese history book is like half a paragraph.
>there was a war
>really, that's all that happened, fuck off
They usually ignore the occupation too.
