Why doesn't anime ever show kids at house parties? I mean Japan's drinking age is lower than America's and all they seem to do is have tea parties.
pic not necessarily related
But seriously, house parties aren't as big of a thing outside of North America.
What are house parties, just normal parties? why do you specify house? do you have parties in a streets.
We English drink our spiffin splendid tea and have rich tea biscuits on the side, why are Americans should barbaric animals.
>We English drink our spiffin splendid tea and have rich tea biscuits on the side
Don't forget going to a proper pub. I'm Irish, and the only other country I've been to that does pubs even remotely right is Britain.
I think op means the "house party" that happens in movies a lot.
You know, cool kid with big house invites kids over for secret party.
I can see adults not doing that, but that was one of the only way for teens to party over here.
It's against broadcasting lawls in Japan to portray minors drinking.
Drinking age in Ireland is 18, so;
16 and under: Usually drinking cheap alcohol in forests/quarries or at home with a couple of friends.
16 and over: Pubs tend to vary when it comes to checking ID. Find one that isn't strict about it, and make it your base pub. Failing that, get somebody to buy a drink for you (actually not that hard in most pubs if you know how to ask somebody)
Finally, conformation that life in Ireland sucks.
There was an implication at some point that it doesn't?
That said, I do love Irish pubs and wouldn't them for any club or foreign-type "bar".
What's the point of a pub when you're an anitsocial hikki/neet?
True. The pub has become less relevant for me in recent years. Used to go there quite a bit with friends before I became depressed as fuck though.
Being a hikki is the best life though.
You can do whatever you want and you can do it whenever you want.
I wouldn't change my life one bit.
You can sit alone in the dark corner and slowly drink your drink while listening to others chatting or music. The quality of alcohol in pubs higher than alcohol from shop in cans and bottles. Well that how it is like in my country
Russia, but people usually don't care and drink almost every time at homes or parks.
Aren't they not allowed to show underage/teen drinking? They cut the drinking from that one Haruhi episode (although they did leave it in the other one but there it was SERIOUS BUSINESS).
>i love inviting people i don't know
how does it feel?
to be a bitch?
How about the Sora no Woto booze party? That was some hardcore underage drinking. Although it didn't air on TV iirc
I mean, it was still pretty intense, you had girls in their underwear drinking huge amounts of distilled liquor.
>I bet my fucking ass that most of them doesn't even like it, just keep drinking to maintain their status.
Sounds like you haven't tried drinking. It's great, I do it all the time alone in my basement.
I'm sure some people drink just to fit in but I think a lot drink for the effects (to get buzzed/drunk). It's like medicine, you might not like the taste, but you'll take it for the effects. Although there is plenty of booze that tastes good, it's not all cheap beer and raw liquors.
>it's not all cheap beer and raw liquors.
Sadly that's all they ever drink at parties since the point is to get hammered as quickly and cheaply as possible.
I find that good alcohol tastes better when you're drinking alone anyway.
>mfw second world
>mfw legal age at anything is non existant
>mfw started drinking at 13
I speak for myself when I say that I mostly just drink to get smashed, that is when I can't afford something that actually tastes good or just want to have a blast with my normalfag friends.
Sleep is a luxury. Students from uni and people with jobs can't have enough time for both sleeping and hobbies. Some of them choose sleeping, some of them choose tiredness as payment for the things they love, but everyone suffers. You, hikki kun, can afford both: doing hard work on your backlog and having a good sleep full of dreams about your waifu. I'm envious of you because after the night of maraphoning something I have to go to my shitty medical uni, while you can have a rest after this wild ride.
Use your privilege to the bitter end, when you'll have to find a job. Also don't forget that sleepless brain is stupider, quality of your actions are lowing and your emotional state become shitty and unstable too.
I'm first world and I started drinking at 14, without having to go through poverty.
I have yet to drink any alchohol that hasn't tasted terrible to me. What do you guys drink?
>I'll never understand people who drink alone.
>changes me from introvert to extrovert.
That's not how it works.
>I'll never understand people who drink alone.
Try drinking something other than piss water for once.
There are some really good liquors, wine and beer for example make really good casual drinks for when you are alone and you still want to get a kick. The hard stuff like rum, whiskey (or bourbon), vodka, etc requires a little more knowledge and experience drinking to actually savor it, they tend to be a little more expensive too, at least in my country.
You don't know what's true fun if you never shitpost on 4chan whilst drunk.
Depends. Alcohol here is cheap. Mix drinks are nice depending on what. I like wines and beers too.
>changes me from introvert to extrovert.
>That's not how it works.
That was me talking about drinking with friends, it's a tangent, I don't even know why I posted it.
Now that I think of it and as girly as it sounds, I have enjoyed some types of red wines and I could see myself just casually sipping a glass or two alone.
Unfortunately, most of my drinking experiences have been at parties where I just get a huge pack of piss water like pabst just to get drunk.
Drinks are not always about the taste
but there is indeed tasty ones and bitter ones just like coffeeit is usually about the state you are in after drinking. It helps me to relieve stress from my job. I like lazily drink alone, watch comedy anime which becomes funnier, and post on /a/. My friend after drinking becomes very nice, friendly and open person. Some people drinks to be more brave and pick up the girl/the man they like. In company of friend it helps to keep a happy stupid mood non stop. Overdrinking make you feel like shit tho.
Try cocktails. Pinna Kollada, Mohito. I personally like colla+whiskey. Some people likes beer with fruit taste, I hate beer though.
Maybe you had to get taste for it. Once I haven't been drinking for a year, and after that everything taste terrible for me for a while.
Cause anime is for children and kids don't drink.
I have never get hangovers too. But once I was stupid enough to have kalyan and red whine at the same time not knowing about features and consequences of mixing them. Man, I was throwing up like a fucking fountain. Thanks god, I??? managed to reach my home firs.
>Absinthe is considered Girl's drink, even when it's really strong, you should try that.
Just don't forget to actually process it correctly before drinking it. When non-filtered/mixed out it contains like 80% alcohol, not so tasty.
Is there an exception if a minor "accidentally" gets drunk in a show? Ping Pong, Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou and maybe Mangaka-san to Assistant-san all did this last season, for example.
I'm glad they don't. I like anime and manga because it shows young couples who don't understand how to be in love which is great because I'm too old to be past the age where I have no dating experience anymore.
Also I hate parties. The few I've been to have been purely to get fucked up and then sit in a corner for a while.
>smoking in FLCL
That remind me something :
In One Piece some character are always smoking like Sanji and Smoker. They use cigarette to look cool. They never censor it in the anime and it's an anime for kid.
In Jojo they cencored Jotaro cigarette, but Jojo public target is older than One piece.
Explain it /a/
> tfw at a party and all you do is standing in a corner and watch other people have fun
Stopped going entirely when I realized that most of the time I haven't spoken a single word not related to getting a new drink.
Drinking is a great laugh. I like the taste of beers and whiskys along with a good smoke. In fact, the only way i can make my life not feel empty is by loading myself up with whatever narcotic i can find.
Oh I see, so the the problem is not people smoking on screen, but underage character smoking.
>How old is Sanji?
19 in the first part, 21 in the second part.
>Sanji is a faggot jobber nobody actually looks up to.
Sanji is by far the best character in One piece.
I guess it depends on what you expect. My first part was exactly how I envisioned it. Fun but nothing life changing. Same with sex.
It should be obvious that everything in 2D is better than 3D, even the normal stuff. Otherwise we wouldn't crave it so much.
>the club scene in persona 4
>oh shit that's right we can't have minors drinking that's against the law
>uuuuhhhhhh they're getting drunk off of...the atmosphere! yeah that's it
>of all people, fucking Sanji
What's wrong with Sanji ? He's a great cooker, he's strong, his fighting style is cool,
he speack french sometime. Overall he's a usefull member of the crew and an entertaining character.
B-but anon-kun I'm a little girl
Hello newfriends and welcome to /a/. You're ours now. Here's what you can expect.
You'll stay for a while, see a few threads, laugh a bit, and see a few odd things. You'll bookmark the place for further amusement. This is where it all begins.
Before too long, you'll find yourself checking on /a/ in increased frequencies. First it'll happen occasionally during the week. Then once every day or so. Then more frequently. You'll find yourself checking on it twice a day. Three times. Once per hour. Before you know it, you'll be browsing it for hours at a time.
Slowly, your life will take a back-seat to /a/. You'll find yourself forgetting to call people. You'll be late for work because you'll be reading threads. Slowly, your life will decline into a mindless chaos.
As /a/ and 4chan slowly consume your mind, your humor will be replaced with our humor. You'll become glued to /a/. It'll be the only place you feel accepted. And then, you'll start accepting the weirder conventions. You'll find yourself fapping to loli, incest, guro, and all sorts of odd things you used to find disgusting. But now it'll all be commonplace for you, as a normal part of your life. Your personality.
And then, someday down the road, you'll realize what has happened to you. Your loved ones will have left you. You'll be alone. Unemployed. Struggling to survive. And worst of all, you'll be hooked. You won't be able to fight it, because we will be all you know, and all you remember. You'll slowly dissolve into madness, or mindless stupidity. Whichever comes first. And then, one day, you will snap, and all remains of your former self will be crushed under our weight.
Welcome, my friends. Welcome, my little autists.
Welcome to your new home.
Welcome to /a/.
>an entertaining character
When he was introduced he was a total alpha who made that high ranking marine's waifu wet as fuck. His strength also rivaled Zoro's and he rekt Crocodile over the phone like a total badass.
Now his 'cool cook' thing is all but gone and all that's left is 'muh chivalry', breaking his legs and tons of unfunny comedy relief.
>tfw no annoying women at work just gruff, buff, sweaty, shirtless men
Didn't say parties, he said drinking. Full stop
That's like the national sport here.
As far as i'm concerned anyone who flat out rejects drink either has no tolerance for fun or hasn't tried it
Fun enhancer. Simple as that. Sometimes creates it's own fun. Alcohol is known as a social lubricant for a reason
She'd join in :D
>Everyone does it
You literally can not see that your reasons are the very reason you should fuck off. I bet you think you are a rebel and an outsider for getting a tattoo too.
God damn it why do normies have to be such autistic shitticks.
Every character became parody of themself in the second part, only Luffy stayed true to himself but he was a shit character to begin with.
Also the fact he almost get zero screentime since ennis lobby doesn't help. There are way to many character in the crew, 5 was perfect, now we only see Luffy and Zorro 80% of the time and each character share the 20% remaining.
Pretty sure I have seen this in my chinese cartoons.
Strange, nobody ever seems to sing.
Wasn't life at Misato's apartment in NGE basically a house party twenty-four seven?
Also that feel when your younger normalfag step-brother likes to drink and you and him bond over your mutual appreciation of spirits.
>Bond over your mutual appreciation for something that literally causes you to not even start recording memories of your bonding
I can understand unwinding with it, but drinking in the excess the way America does is incredibly stupid.
Not much to tell really, work's heavy, we start to sweat so we undress. Almost zero women in my profession and we rarely get visitors since we work on electrical substations in the middle of nowhere.
At night we get hammered on cheap vodka and watch Nichijou
>always want to drink throughout growing up
>drink while in high school with a bit nothing fun
>get old enough to buy booze and post on the internet
It was at the point that I could go into vocaroo threads or talk to other people on skype. Alcohol has made me be able to fun things. You need to get the stick out of your ass Anon.
I don't think the alcohol is the problem here. It's them blogging about their high school adventures with alcohol that's wrong with this.
We've had classy threads about drinking before. This thread is just terrible though.
And how does this lead to hot bara action?
I need details anon, DETAILS
Tell me you are just this tiny girlish seme surrounded by all these burly uke.
No worries, good sir.
Us supreme gentleman are still here.
>drinking is fun
I've been drunk before, both socially and alone.
Its about as fun as going to a 200+ ping server in a videogame. Everything has latency lag. Nothing else happens. You don't see anything, you don't lose inhibitions, you just get real life "latency" lag and eventually start throwing up.
People who say its a "fun enhancer" or that its "fun to drink" are fucking retarded. It tastes like shit and makes the world feel like a shitty multiplayer game of the already horrible 3D world we live in.
Don't do it, its just not worth the money.
>not wasting any free time getting high, playing pokemon, and watching your favorite shows
>you don't lose inhibitions
Depend of the people then, I'm unable to enjoy a conversation with people I don't know, but when I'm drunk if they talk first I can have fun with stanger.
Trying to fit in is what defines a normie. Doing shit because everyone else does. Caring about what people think. Fulfilling societal expectations.
Just because they are shit at it, doesn't make /co/ any less normie.
How much alcohol can you handle?
The most I have taken on a short time span was 4 beer cans at a small party. I didn't get drunk, but I got sick of the taste.
I still haven't really acquired the taste for alcohol and none of my friends drink, but I'm young so I will probably give in under the social pressure in nearby years.
I think you misunderstood. Have you ever heard "It's the little things in life that mean the most"? I got over fucking depression by going for walks around town and taking in the scenery.
Plants are pretty, ya know.
I got drunk like three or four time in my life.
>improve yourself naturally
It's really hard to change when you're 20. I can talk to stranger if they make the first move, I just don't like it because I never find anything interresting to say.
Yes there is. I have/am watched/ing 212 series since the year began. If you watch everything that airs you still have plenty enough time in the week to watch your backlog which should include everything you have never watched.
Also build a MySql database in JMM to manage your collection once it gets over 700 series or it becomes completely unmanageable.
Cheers buddy, you're never drinking alone if you're on /a/.
>>It's really hard to change when you're 20.
It takes just as long now as it would have 5 years. And it will take just as long in 5 years.
You're retarded and looking for excuses to cover up your own weakness.
I'm from Wisconsin, and anything other than beer is looked down upon.
It's hard to change no matter age you are, anon. Work hard! You can do it! And finding interesting things to say isn't that hard: talk about things that interest you (to a point), and if they think "that's weird", you shouldn't be hanging out with them, anyway.
I hate you all. I hate this thread. I hate normies. I hate blogs. I hate that the only real discussion of anime in this thread was cut off by anon responding that there isn't enough anime to watch 24/7
You are all double niggers. I can't wait for most of you to go back to school and leave us the fuck alone.
It doesn't matter though, enough of you will stick around.
This is the worst summer in eight years, and the worst part about it is that it is better than any summer to come.
Drink rum with cola, tastes like vanilla coke.
Or just add vodka to anything.
>this summer is worse than when 4chan literally quadrupled its userbase in 2 weeks and "eternal newfag summer" was declared
Don't think so kid. Then again I am 100$ sure you weren't there back then.
Speaking of normalfags, what is up with them jumping on the waifu bandwagon? I mean hell we gave up on 3DPD and gave it up completely to the normies that wanted it. Now they got to come in and norm up our waifu?
Go ask /pol/
There's way, WAY too many normal people on the internet nowadays, so they grab whatever seems trendy at the moment, because that's what normals do.
Why do you think 2006 memes got popular recently? These are the same kind of people who think putting text on a picture (with IMPACT font) is fun just because it's fucking text on a picture.
>not opening a beer bottle without bottle opener
keyfags pls go
Only a tiny minority are actually deeply in love and comitted to their waifus, most just really like the character as their idea of the perfect woman.
The difference between most of /a/ and the rest of the internet is that there is a least some small degree of seriousness.
I wouldn't call it a joke, it used to just be a way to express affection for a character.
they want to fit in.
however this should be obvious that normies even lose their personality, pick up shit trends just to be accepted.
'The Japanese' definitely have house parties, they roughly translate as 'happenings' and are popular with university-age students and those in communal house-shares. Real Japan is not like your annie-mays
Because anime is controlled by the government and corporations and mainly watched by high school and middle school kids. While these kind of parties are seen as being a corruption of youth.
What do you think kids in yurop do? Apart from using red cups which I find no reason for.
Well count me among the 5% that think 3D is in all seriousness PD. I can't even look at #DPD porn anymore without feeling disgusted.
When FATALPULSE doujins are more attractive to you than anything 3DPD could ever be you will understand
>hurr durr American pisswater
It's not the eighties anymore.
No, because you do that at home and nobody sees it usually.
In asian culture, the loss of face from public exhibition in a negative way is seen as way worse then the commitment of the actual act.
>4 breer cans?
You meen like 500 ml beer cans?
Oh god I feel so slav and bad now.
We were drinking 0,5 vodka on each under aged Havent done that for a while, you grow up from excessive alcohol usage
Where's my waki bros at?
the concept of having a fake wife is a hell of a lot older than azumanga daioh dummy.
People have been lying to themselves and each other ever since the first case of loneliness met insanity
>Doesn't like the taste of alcohol
Massive plebeians. Dark spiced rum, bitters, lime, chilled (or on rocks if you don't want to wait for it to cool down) is the drink of champions. Old fashioned comes in a close second place.
>mfw the legal age is barely reinforced by law
>mfw started drinking at 13 as well
I'm a poor college student. I drink PBR and on occasion some local craft beer if it's on sale sometime really cheap wine if I can find it at the liquor store. (Utah fag) We can only buy beer in stores and have to go to a state regulated liquor store to get anything else so it's a pain in the ass and everything is expensive as shit.
Megane was a pardoy of waifufags and this came out in 1981.
Who knows how old waifuism really is.
Drinking at anytime is a blast. I drink when I'm alone and playing video games, although I don't get nearly as drunk as when I'm playing drinking games with my friends. Plus I've ever thrown up once, I don't get how people don't know their limits.
I'm a poor uni student as well. I'm just stating my number one and two drinks. I usually just drink the exact same except with low quality rum. It's not the same but it's still drinkable.
Goddamn I heard that everything is watered down except for wine.
I might have to, no one in Australia seems to know how to do them.
Yeah, the stuff they sell in stores can only be 3.2% by volume so the only way to get anything stronger is at the liquor store, which is taxed to shit. Hence why we only drink cheap beer.
This is true. I drank so much one time that I actually got the drunk hiccups. I didn't think they actually existed. Then I hung out the window all the way home and kept saying 'no I'm good bro, just need a little fresh air.' stumbled into my house, barely made it to the bathroom and puked a mixture of shitty beer, jack and jager all over the wall/toilet.
The only time that's ever happened for me was the very first time I drank. My friend had just turned 21 so he went and got the cheapest vodka, tequila and whiskey he could find. I didn't know what I was doing so I just kept taking shots of one, then taking a shot of another one. I mixed all three which is probably what did it. I remember watching animal planet, some show about lions, then it goes black. The next thing I remember I woke up at my own house 20 miles away, in my bad with puke everywhere. Turns out I threw up in their sink as well and clogged it. My friend had to scoop it out with a cup. I don't drink that much anymore because I felt like an asshole making him clean up my puke.
>In asian culture, the loss of face from public exhibition in a negative way is seen as way worse then the commitment of the actual act.
All those hentai
>don't scream, you don't want your husband/boyfriend/family to see you like this
>she submits and lets him rape her
Fucking shameful dispray.
just make your own
I just love how the few off topic and slightly normalfag threads we have are so popular on /a/. I love you guys.
It's just faggots trying to fit in and not understanding anything, so fuck them.
At first, people trying posting whatever character they somewhat like in waifu threads to fit in but then they get bored and never post again because they don't understand.
As for waifu, I would wager it's something that is serious but with enough self consciousness about the whole thing that makes it what it is.
A lot of people love their waifu but they know she's 2D and nothing will ever happen.
It wasn't serious at first but then people underwent the same thing the nips are stuck with.
They come once in a blue moon and should stay that way.
I'm more glad that there aren't as many of them as in the past like with romery threads.
Plebs, plebs everywhere.
I always prefer some good marijuana, LSD, or ecstasy over the peasants drug of choice.
Japanese don't usually have house parties, but they often have drinking parties at restaurants or bars. They call them "nomikai," which literally just translates into drinking party. Often companies will have them, but also school clubs and other groups of people will have them as well. Also, drinking underage is fairly common in Japan. Some kids even drink beer like soda. That's why most anime say things like "Remember, drinking underage is illegal," otherwise there won't be a point to the effort. But drinking underage isn't really seen as wrong or immoral like by some Americans or westerners. One Japanese told me while I was in Japan something like, "In America, if you drink underage, people think you are a delinquent, but in Japan, if you don't drink, then everyone will think you're strange."
Fucking Napoleon banned the drug because Egyptian peasants were using it.
That tells you enough of how peasant it is.
Alcohol is the most used, pot is the most peasant and lower class.
Not sure but here in Austria teens can go to clubs with 16 and drink light alcohol. They also recently changed the law so you can stay out as long as you want from like 15 before you had to be 18.
Alcohol is a timeless classic.
It's for everyone to enjoy, regardless of status.
You'll find that most of the most powerful and rich people drank before they smoked as well.
I love tea and have it a lot, but nobody apart from the elderly or lower-middle class plebs trying to appear sophisticated have actual tea parties here. Fuck those proles, fuck their doilies and twee little cakes
As for most young people, it's house parties, pubs or clubs for entertainment.
