>the japanese word for shower is a loanword from english

Does this mean what i think it means?
>>
>>53418963
If it means they took bath instead of showers yes
>>
That showers never caught on and baths are the cultural norm?
>>

>norwegian ''''''''banter'''''''''

>>53418989
but ive never used the word in that way. i use it only when taking a shower, not a bath. i mean, it doesnt always mean like what you mentioned. i honestly dont like guys use it in that way since it sounds sissy. its a pretty girly word, imo.

>Resident Evil 4, known as Biohazard
>バイオハザード4 Baiohazādo Fō
it this serious?
>>
Don't they just like pour buckets of water over eachother?
>>
I heard japs take a shower first and then get in the bath, so they are clean and the whole family can use the same water.
>>
>>53420902

What do you mean?
That series was titled Biohazard from the beginning in Japan, and then they released it as Resident Evil in the global market. As for the word バイオハザード, we have a boring Japanese term "生物学的危害 (seibutsugakutekikigai)", which doesn't match a game title, so they adopted 'Biohazard' instead, which sounds kinda cool and mysterious to us.
>>
>>53420902
romaji is nothing but like a lost technology, and writing down their names with it in rare situations besides no one has used it in real life. everyone reads biohazard and anything like that as english even though their pronounces are shit.

dont be so harsh to japanese people, russian kun, since your english is exactly the same shit as japanese one. i can tell that most of you also cope with article in english.
>>
they shower in blood of innocent Chinese and Koreans
>>
>>53421609
Quite a good idea
>>
>>53419845
you probably don't watch anime then
>>
>>53421609
I would be disgusted by that desu senpai
