Is this what japanese people call a toaster?
I don't think something with that much cheese and bacon would work well in a standard toaster.
How do you feel about JK-Meshi turning into a basketball anime?
Watch this part of her hair during this scene.
Carbonara without cream. If they didn't heat the egg it would be /ck/ paradise.
An oven that has a fan next to the heating element, which circulates the hot air. Instead of conventional ovens that rely on the normal radiation of heat.
In general they can cook things slightly faster than a conventional oven, but some baked goods won't come out right.
found some extra JK Meshi stuff
I know right?
I think they're more commonly called "convection microwaves" here; you'll notice them to have a higher base price than standard microwaves; you can bake things in them.
I think they're more popular elsewhere because here (America anyways) space is at less of a premium so everyone has an actual oven instead of needing it a peripheral on a different more compact kitchen appliance. IDK though, that's just my guess, maybe it was a translation fuckup, you can make pizza or whatever in a standard microwave if you really want to anyways.
I want to fuck Ryouka.
But she's a huge normalfag. Why not go after the semen demon?
I think the only thing that monstrosity is useful for is dumping into a bathtub
Why do americans waste their money on toaster that can only toast breads?
It's a combined microwave and conventional oven. When you want to microwave, you use microwave mode. When you want to just have radiant heat, you use oven mode.

Having only a glass door to stop people entering your house? man living in japan sure is safe, i have a reinforced steel door, a normal door with locks from inside and all my windows have steel bars.
Also the same except that my backyard haves 2 doors + one extra door to get outside to the patio.
I don't know, but you can seriously burn yourself on the uninsulated hot water pipes.
The front door was literally a semi-transparent sliding piece of plastic that was locked with a very crude latch. Our sliding doors in America are comparably much more secure.
Fortunately, there are very few black people in Japan, though, so you don't have to lock your door at all.
One of the previous occupants thought it would look better painted. This was the JET Programme, so lots of the stuff in the house was there when I moved in.
I don't know the details, but there was some sort of agreement between the Board of Education and a property owner whereby I paid a leasing agency 43,000 yen (about $475 in 2012) for rent there every month. It was a smallish town, and I don't imagine that rent elsewhere was much higher. The killer was utilities. Japanese houses have practically no insulation in the walls and cold air just pours off the windows in the winter, so you're running electric heaters constantly. With the inefficiency of electric heat combined with electric costs in Japan, I was paying up to $250/mo. in the winter for my electric bill.
>Tiny unusable bathroom for anyone over 5' 8
>Front door you can break down by leaning on
>Everyone from the street can get a full view in unless curtains are closed at all time.
>Ceiling tile ripped directly from a department store.
I finally understand their suicide problem.
The bathroom actually wasn't that small. Compare the shower area to a typical stand-up enclosed shower in an American bathroom and it had maybe 4-5 times the floorspace. I could sit on the floor with my legs out straight. The bathtub was small, but it was deep enough that I could fully submerge myself in it, and I'm 5'11" and of average build.
I really makes me laugh, though, when I see anime with 2-3 Japanese girls plus their father fitting into a bathtub with ease. Some houses have larger bathtubs (most are a little larger than mine was), but there's a lot of exaggeration in anime bathrooms.

And people wonder why japanese cold is lethal.
If im dying with 22°C and the cold i have in bed i cant imagine what would be like to be with a cold, literally sleeping in the floor on a house with no insulation.
Suddenly living in mexico doesn't seem that bad, at least japan looks secure and everything looks good.
I mean, to have a literally plastic and glass door.
Sometimes i dont feel secure even with 3 steel doors and locks all over my house.
That is why i was asked him if the house was rented.
I cant believe they couldn't afford some ceramic for the kitchen.
Do you got a picture of the toilet?
I stuffed blankets up against/inside the windows during the coldest parts of winter. At one point, I was sleeping inside a 20 degree sleeping bag AND I had a glowing red hot electric heater pointed at me during the night. In the morning, I'd have to put my winter coat on to go to the bathroom and the kitchen because those rooms weren't heated.
Some sort of weird extra storage space. Maybe for alcohol? I have no idea. It was a waterproof tub, like a cooler. You could probably have fit a very small body in it.
>Sometimes i dont feel secure even with 3 steel doors and locks all over my house.
That's because it isn't. If you where in Brazil instead of Japan half your shit would be gone. I still can't believe people from 2 blocks away can have such a nice view in.
For 11 months of the year, the temperature was more or less fine. I wasn't in the mountains or anything, so winter was very brief. And yes, obviously. My salary was about $2800 a month, and I got to hang around in a Japanese school all day, just like in anime.
It's a dry erase board...
I think the issue is the same as it is in France: nobody is willing to do any significant alterations on any existing structures, so they just cobble together a bunch of slapdash ghetto shit to "modernize" it.
But, hell, I lived in a fairly recent construction in France and it still had uninsulated pipes running along the interior walls.
>$450 rent and another hundred or two for utilities
I don't care if that house feels like Siberia in Winter, that's a good deal. I make 20k queendollars here in bongland and I can't even afford a place of my own.
>I'm guessing it's nothing like our anime is telling us.
It's not. I looked all over, but I couldn't find a single WcRonald's anywhere.
>that place seems pretty old.
You'd be surprised... When I was there, they were still building houses pretty much the same way, with thin windows and no insulation in the walls.
I might or might not do it again (probably not), but I wish I'd stayed longer than 1 year. Only reason I left is because I had an offer for grad school, which sucked by comparison.
My microwave, oven, toaster, rice cooker, and clothes dryer are all the same device. Do you really need more than one "make stuff warm to hot" device?
Stop getting ripped off by Big Appliance, chumps.
I bought my house in mexico for $80,000.
How expensive is a house there?
2 floors, really huge backyard, garage is kinda small, my truck barely fits and the street is too small so its a problem to move it inside.
And no, I didn't sleep with any JK, but there were many girls in the schools who were extremely flirtatious, like way more than I ever saw a girl student in any of my schools in America flirt with their teachers, if that's even a thing in the US. When you're white in Japan, you're like a movie star.
Maybe you could've tapped those if you weren't such a beta?
You could have been a legend of /a/, the Glorious Nippon Pussy Crusher. But instead you're the Disgraceful Beta in a Dirt Hovel.
£292,000 is the average price for a house in the UK, but I live in London, where the average is just over £500,000.
I'll never be able to afford a house, but living by myself sounds comfy as fuck, and I hope I'll be able to do it one day.
>I didn't want to go to prison, though
Afraid you would actually experience a decrease in living accommodations? Kind of hard to imagine, but I do hear bad things about Japanese prison.
Which one would you date?
>Maybe he just wanted the authentic experience of living in a culture too stupid to design their homes with basic utilities in mind.
What if those utilities were invented after the house was build?
The narrow and irregular streets means medieval city, for example. Not that the house is.
>a mansion in Mexico is considered a high medium class home in the USA
Don't know about Mexico, but I guess in the US, those neighbourhoods where all the houses look the same are cheaper than the older, stylish ones.
I thought that was most European countries (World Wars), but they had the good taste to rebuild the same building.
As for the US, Internet statistics say they're falling behind because they need to change their old infrastructure in most parts of the country.
The end of the war was basically us using complete air superiority to casually fire bomb them in an effort to make them give up. Since they had to rebuild all their major cities anyway they were able to give the new ones much better infrastructure for the modern era.
See the building at the end of the street with black writing on it visible through my window in >>136319929? That's an udon-ya. Next door was a kaiten-sushi restaurant. A block down from that was a ramen place. Actually, on practically every corner within line of sight was a pretty neat place to eat Japanese food. A 45 minute ride on the local train brought me to a large city with a Mandarake and a movie theater that would currently be screening Kizumonogatari for general audiences. Can the same be said of trailer parks?
I currently live in a fairly poorish part of the southwest US. 200k here will get you a pretty average 3 bedroom 2 bath house with a garage+decent front and back yards.
Where I used to live in Southern California, the same house would be 450k minimum. Up to twice that depending on location.
JK Meshi is a better anime than One Punch Man.
Nah, the US completely leveled most major Japanese cities in the last year or so of the war. The only one left that can really use that medieval street layout excuse is Kyoto.
Have you tried any of these recipes?
>that's what they were betting on
Now it all makes sense.
>They're not able to consent to gaijins until they're 18.
Is this bullshit? It sounds like it, but I wouldn't be surprised.
I tried the rice and crisps. It was perfectly decent.
>why didn't beta stupidhead anon go to prison for pedophilia??? fucking beta idiot!!! have sex with underage girls ffs!!!
Only on /a/.
It's like that everywhere, even between states in the US. It's just the way consent laws are made. They make them with the intent of keeping adults from sexing children. From that perspective they're just preventing people from traveling to other countries just to fuck underage people. If that weren't the case some shithole country could just remove their laws completely and start rolling in pedobux from sex tourism.
But the way consent laws function is by telling people under an arbitrary age that they're not smart enough to know whether or not they want sex and taking away their right to consent to protect them. So from that perspective it's like saying that it takes more maturity to decide whether or not you should have sex with a foreigner than with a local.
Since anon was traveling then they would be subject to the clauses about international relations, which typically require both parties to be 18. If you want to fuck a 13 year old legally then you'll need to actually move to the place and become a citizen.
>If that weren't the case some shithole country could just remove their laws completely and start rolling in pedobux from sex tourism.
That's how it already is in Thailand, they're quite proud of their sex tourism there. So the only people for whom it's illegal are people who live in a country that bans its patriots from sex tourism abroad.
You can't go to prison for pedophilia, that would be thoughtcrime. You go to prison for rape.
Probably not the way you're implying, but playing with the idea of who is and isn't fit to consent is being used to expand the definition of rape. It's mostly girls who regret it the day after and claim rape as some kind of social out. One of the big arguments that's being accepted is that being intoxicated can make you unfit to consent as you have impaired faculties at the time, meaning all those sluts who whore it up at parties aren't actually at fault because their decision to get shitfaced absolves them of any responsibility for their actions. Thanks to rape laws and public opinion being biased towards women in this regard, it basically means that it's a man's responsibility to make sure a girl is completely legally competent before making a move.
Exactly. You're going to prison for having sex with someone without their consent, since they are legally unable to give consent. You're going to prison for an action, not for having a certain fetish.
>hurr durr students should learn Queen's English only
A student should understand professional and casual English, with the emphasis dependent on the individual student's goals. Adhering to a prescriptive set of standards is not only unproductive, it can hinder the student's ability to function at an ideal level in English-speaking communities. To suggest otherwise indicates ignorance in the study of the language, of its pedagogy, and that you're a faggot.
Nope, i'm afraid you lived in a renovated convience store anon. That's why the bathroom is the size of a closet, the rush-job piping sticks out all over the place, and the walls aren't properly insulated.
Is everywhere that shitty? This stuff looks older than the junk in my trailer that I bought outright for $1250.
>I was paying up to $250/mo. in the winter for my electric bill.
Fucking ridiculous. And they sleep on the floor, too. I guess you have to dress warm even inside.
Most houses there are nicer than the place I lived. Remember... $475 per month and it was a whole house. I was happy to live there and I resent comparisons to some redneck trailer.
>$475 per month and it was a whole house
What do you need a "whole house" for? Just because you're American so everything has to be big? How many people are you? For $475, you ought to be getting a much nicer place than that.
I know you learned everything you know about Japan from anime and therefore think your guesses are "credible," but you have no idea what you're talking about. It's like making a "credible guess" that dolphins are fiah based on "the evidence" as you understand biology.
Only freezing? Damn you made it sound like it was below 0 out wtf. Freezings not that bad, I just went out to night school last week in shorts when it was 25 out.
Where are you from in the US?
Freezing is not bad when you have a warm home to go home to. When the inside of your house is 50 degrees with the heaters on and your workplace is likewise unheated because Japs are cucked about energy saving, the cold gets to you.
My microwave is older than most of this board (from 1992), and it has the option to toast, grill, defrost, and like a billion other things.
This was one of my schools. Only about 100 or so students in all grade levels.
Some fellow teachers from one of the schools after we harvested some sea life from the beach and were grilling it up. This was shortly after Fukushima started leaking radioactive material into the ocean, so now I probably will get cancer.
I don't even remember what this was supposed to be. Some sort of sea life salad. It was OK.
This is as close, as I've got a picture of, to a candy store.
This was the bento at some sort of festival I went to.
This crazy fucker is stirring up butterflies out of a field.
If you can read kanji, this sign is interesting and strange.
This was the local castle during hanami season. Yes, Japanese people really lay out those blue tarps and have picnics under flowering cherry trees.
That amount will get you a slightly nicer place with less footage in the US. It's the choice between a shitty house and a decent apartment. Rent isn't cheap.
$250 for electric is insane, though.
>in the US.
I'm perplexed that you somehow came to think that this was a relevant comment to the conversation.
Nakatsu Castle. It is crowded. See all the people?
The rest of the town was ugly, though. Pic is a view from the top and the last one I'm going to post for the night. I'm going to bed, folks.
JK Meshi tends to be strange like that. Remember when a thread about it got to 500+ posts thanks to /pol/?
keep saying how great your convenience store shithole is. just wait until the next tsunami when that fucker gets wiped out. ill be driving cross country with my beautiful mobile home
>American laws are so retarded that people can actually be jealous of a toilet that flushes properly
Remind me again, why does American regulation outlaw toilets able to flush more than a cup of water at a time?
So is everywhere else, or virtually so, unless you live in Africa
I'm a yuropoor and my entire yearly water bill for 2015 was like 30 euros. That's pretty much free, considering I take 2-hour showers three times a week and generally use a ton of water.
If you mean packet or cup ramen, then you haven't really eaten ramen.
It's so different in taste, texture, and overall feeling from actual ramen that they might as well be completely different foods.
The Oven Range (ôbun renji, オーブンレンジ)
The oven range is a small microwave-oven device, which can be as simple as a toaster oven or as fancy as an oven-microwave-grill with special settings for warming up drinks and steaming food. The biggest difference is the size.
To someone used to full-sized ovens, the oven range has both disadvantages and advantages. For example, the smaller size of the oven range means that cooking a lot of food (layer cakes, cookies) or a large item of food (quick bread, turkey) can be difficult. The heat source is usually on one side, so you may have to rotate food to cook evenly, if it works at all.
However, the oven range has some advantages. It’s more eco-friendly, using less power to heat a smaller space, which also means it preheats quickly. Baking in the summer still isn’t fun, but it exudes less heat than a full-sized oven. Also, having to preset the cooking time means that you’ll never accidentally leave the oven on while you’re at work.
Exactly, I love her no fun attitude.
Makes it all the more satisfying.
Have fun, mate.
Exactly my sentiments. Reina is the best girl and best cook.
What was that again?
Rice with crisps. Or potato chips, you might call them.
That's basically it.
Toasting bread isn't special. You're just burning the bread slightly.
So a toaster oven just uses a heating element. You could use it as a grill or a regular oven, though you can't fit much inside them.
Incidentally, you can make toast inside a regular full-size convection oven. Or a frying pan. Or a barbeque, grill, open fire, and so on.
>draw a microwave
>call it a toaster
It's basically a convection oven. AKA one of the best tools that modern man has invented.
Talk about low standards, mate. Some anon manage to date < this cutie.
Will any of these VAs get additional roles?
Everytime I watch the end, it reminds me of all the failures that have come and gone.
why would you add injury to insult?
Just 600W, 500W, Nikomi (stew) and Defrost.
They've got a photo of it next to one of their toasters, which seems like a clue that it isn't meant to toast.
oh look new videos
good modern microwaves double as toaster ovens and vice versa.
i work at best buy
>there are people in this thread that don't own the miracle of the kitchen
You can use it as an oven if you are only cooking for yourself so you don't have to waste time and electricity preheating the actual oven.
Ruriko tries cooking again but it ends up in a small fire that they quickly put out.
It really depends on the board. I don't think it happens so much on /a/, but on the shittier boards, you'll get people posting in the thread without reading it, just to reply to the OP, and then they leave the thread, never to be heard from again. I call them shitposting drive-bys.
There are tons of reasons. If no one replies to your post and you don't really care about the thread, you usually wont post again. Some people just post reaction images to a post in a thread, or the OP post.
Sometimes the OP post asks a question, and they'll post once to state their opinion and either leave or don't really care about replies. Much like this thread.
>I'm considering watching it though.
It's a weird show. I didn't like it at first but it gradually grew on me until the self-depreciation episode where they finally got me to give a good laugh.
The only reason to post multiple times is if you start having a conversation with someone or have a goal like bumping the thread or starting an argument, right? I tend to make my post and just lurk for the rest of a thread, maybe sometimes just lurk.
I wasn't even aware this was supposed to be a JK Meshi thread and I've been watching it on a weekly basis since the very first episode.
Reina best JK waifu.
Ruriko you dumb fuck.
>complains how japanese toast their bread
>eats this shit
if you think this turd qualifies as bread, you guys should kill yourselves. Fucking unitedstatians
One third of it is like this but yes.
it's weird how they each have one ok looking piece of fan art each
How do you clean the crumb tray? How do you stop your Toaster Strudels™ from rupturing and pouring their tasty goo onto the inside just like Sempai did that one night back on the coast...
Whats with Japanese architecture? Their history is full of beautiful building yet most cities are concrete, power lines and crap. It looks awful
Did they knock all their ancient buildings or what?
Still better than modern looking archetecture.
Dirty hippies petition for lower water usage.
Toilet manufacturers support the change becoming law because it means that any old toilets taken out of a building can't be reinstalled elsewhere.
There are super ovens that can cook up a raw turkey in like 20 minutes through the magic of lamps, microwaves, fire, electric burners, supercongealed atmospheric fryalation, and magnets.
It's fucking nuts.
Can confirm this. Coworker gave me this "old microwave that didn't fit above his range".
>MFW its a $1500 electric convection oven with microwave built in.
This sumbitch will roast a 10 lb. turkey in 50 minutes.
>he doesn't have a microwave, toaster, toaster-oven, and an oven
>three microwaves of varying power outputs
>two toasters - one standard, one wide-slotted
>toaster oven designed to take standard frozen pizzas

My kitchen is fully stocked.
JK Meshi threads are prone to deviating from the topic.
>no rice steamer
>no electric spaghetti fork
>no robot butler
>he doesn't even have a dehydrator
Call me when you can make your own beef jerky
I make it every time I take a shit.
>he can't into dried pineapples, bananas, and raspberries
Truly a man of no taste.
>he doesn't have a hydro-dynamic spatula with port and starboard attachments and turbo drive
Ruriko, Ryouka and Reina.
I'd all of them.
Changing "power" on a microwave just limits the percentage of running time that the heat is on.
Like on full power it will be heating the whole time but on 50% it will heat for say 30 seconds and then just spin for 30.
Doesn't change the amount of heat that is hitting the kernels.
What's happening here? Is this actually a JK Meshi thread?
Have any of you lads tried any of these meals?
Tell us about your experience and the end result.
Alright, anon. Tell me what was your own quick and easy meal when you were younger or hell today.
I used to just use the chilli pack in freeze dried noodle packets and crush/mix them together as some sort of chip snack.
Baked beans and couscous was my go-to. You could make the couscous with hot tap water, and have the beans cold. I'd make it when I was secluding myself in a dorm, so I didn't have to leave my room.
