Actual old people in /m/ thread?

>>13836936

Do Japanese people just age terribly or something. Cause I'm nearly 30 and me and everyone I've known since high school still more or less look the same as we did over a decade ago.

I know for Asian women they stay the same then hit menopause and sharply drop in looks. I figure it's the same for guys, just without the menopause

I thought Mu was in his twenties or something.

It's just anime, it likes to pretend like you're an Adult Man (TM) by the time you're 16-18, while 30+ means you're an old fart. This is so disattached from reality that it's laughable.

But then a lot of western media are not too different.

Whoosh.

Then he kicks up boulders and his assistant is a ninja.

Not always. Most of the Marvel and DC characters kids love are in their 30s. And most of the 80s cartoons people remember fondly the leads were all adults too.

The west seems to have a "Life will be awesome when you grow up and you can do cool stuff" while Japan has "Life is great and you can have fun when your a kid but after 20 you will be a boring as shit salaryman for the rest of your life"

The third seasons treatment of Genjuro is a travesty. At least the second season let him kick a rock.

This.

Japan has a cultural obsession with youth, and always has. You can see it in the girls they push as sex objects despite their young age in their media, as well as their belief any woman that isn't married by 25 has basically missed her chance because no one wants her now.

On top of that, Japanese work culture fucking sucks. If you work in an office, you are basically giving up your freedom because not spending 20 hours a day with your coworkers, every day, every week, means you are throwing your career under the bus.

As far as they are concerned, life ends after highschool. Its the last chance they had to do whatever they wanted.

This is part of why they have as many problems as a culture. Their media is almost all rampant escapism, their suicide rate is through the roof, birth rates are low, and enough of them decide to just tell the world to fuck off and never leave their rooms that they had to come up with a word for it. These are all the signs of a deeply unhappy people.

No, that one's western and eastern

The christmas cake thing is all them though
>>
>>13841917
To be fair most of these problems are just Japanese hyper-extensions of already existing western issues

The only reason we don't have a word for it is because we don't need one, whereas the japs have words for everything
