why are delinquents such a prominent part of anime culture?
and why are they so fucking hilarious?
New Bakuon Rettou chapter was posted a couple days ago. I just caught up recently and am still in shock over what happened. Though I must say,
going the delivery truck route was a bit contrived.
Because they're the only non betas in Japan.
It's because of what >>138428385 said. It basically goes: Delinquent characters played straight -> become more popular -> become a cliche -> parody of cliche -> parody becomes cliche -> no longer popular
Every culture has their delinquents, and every culture has the deliquent-with-a-heart-of-gold cliché.
Japan is just much better at it.
To this day Angel Densetsu is one of my all-time favorite manga.
