HIKARU PLEASE. YOUR SCHOOL IS LITERALLY ON THE BEACH ACCORDING TO THIS SCENE.

Useless Japan trivia #43:
The tourism bureau with the aid of a few psychologists decided in 1976 that having fictional characters respond positively to the ocean would have a good effect on not just internal tourism, but also attract foreigners into the country. They appealed to the government and in 1978 it was decided that for every appearance of "Umi Da", a mangaka would get the equivalent of ~$50, an anime studio would get ~$1200, a novelist would get ~$20 and live action movies could make ~$2700.
Since then, the "Umi da" has become part of popular culture. The tourism bureau has observed in 1986 that the campaign was much more successful and far-reaching than anybody had hoped. Even after the "Umi Da" benefits ran out in 1988 people would continue adding them into their works of fiction.

How much did they pay for usage of cutlet sandwich?

So Umi Da is basically a pre internet meme?

How much screen time does the imouto have? She is super qt.

More like viral marketing.

BD release when?

This is untrue, but it would explain the inexplicable reason why the Japanese seem to be so excited by just seeing the sea even though THEY LIVE ON A FUCKING ISLAND

What one? MC has two, and I'm only on episode 9.

The one with the red/pink hair.

This. I live on an island and am blasé as fuck when it comes to the sea.

Didn't ruin all their beaches with concrete? Maybe that's why they are surprised when they see an actual beach.

>>138265577

I think it's just regular marketing

Well both his sisters have equal screen time since both are always shown together or not at all. And they take up maybe a minute and a half of each episode.

This one? Not a whole lot. But she gets an episode to herself that's pretty sweet.

To be fair, Japan is a massive island, it's entirely possible to live on the island and never visit or see the ocean once.

It might have been manga-only, but there's a chapter where he goes on a date with the "good" sister without her realizing it's him (she takes off her glasses and can't see well, and he has a bit of a cold so she can't recognize his voice). He does it to make sure she has a fun, safe first date with a boy, but decades later, in hindsight, it was a forerunner of the whole imouto-incest genre.

>>138266476
Oh it's not manga-only...
>>
>>138266699
Well, it's been literally 20 years since I read or watched either. I only remember that chapter so well because it seemed a little odd even at the time, and then when stuff like OreImo hit it reminded me of it.

Just a reminder, unless you're a teen, if you don't have your name at the end of the credits of KOR LD box set, you are not truly a KOR fan.

Does anyone else love the 3rd Patlabor movie? Its so fucking weird and ridiculous that it is great.

>>138267466
It's the only PatLabor movie that I consider genuinely good (though I don't consider it very PatLabor).

You do realize that whatever landmass you live on is also surrounded by water, right? That doesn't mean you see it regularly.

The imouto-incest genre's pretty old.
