Why are NEETs presented as pretty girls in anime?
Because NEET is a meme now. People who don't have anything to do for a particular weekend or are feeling lazy come to blog on the internet and call themselves NEETs, even though they will start their work/education week on Monday.
Jap neets get offended easily. They even got offended by Tomoko, and she's far from ugly.
Do you watch alot of north american television?
Most shows these days have the women being the hackers and the tech guru's, its just a thing to show that its not just fat losers sitting alone in the dark anymore, now theres apperantly hot babes doing the exact same thing.
Did you know that in real life Japanese people all have straight black hair, brown eyes and similar features to each other (compared to other ethnicities)
Do you want that?
Anime isn't realistic.
Literally every character in anime, unless purposefully meant to be ugly, is good looking. Why would it be any different when it comes to female NEETs?
Never forget: It's not a crime until they've caught you!
It's your perspective that is distorting your views.
Anime could have a truly disgusting TruNEET girl and everyone would love her like nothing other for the simple fact of her being a NEET.
Like being NEET makes her beautiful.
Why do you think females have higher self-esteem? Girls are known to be typically shy and passive.
Is this going where I think it is? Are you going to say that a female will always have higher self-esteem because sometime, somewhere, someone might want to have sex with her? I'm sure there are at least a few people in this world who would agree to have sex with you as well. That doesn't make you invulnerable to depression and joblessness.
Women don't have to feel worthless for being a NEET, men do. It won't hurt a woman's career as a mother to have been NEET for 10 years, but good luck making it as a guy after the same amount of being a NEET. All a girl has to do is look ok and she'll probably be able to marry and have a secured future. Good luck finding a girl wanting to work and look after you
It can't be helped.
B... But muh escapism.
Why does every NEET have to be fat to you people? Not going outside or socializing doesn't automatically exclude someone from actually caring about their body or what they put in their mouths.
I disagree. Having had the chance to take care of handicapped people for a few years, losing your arms, legs, ability to speak, and worst of all your memory (Alzheimer's) are far worse.
Not everyone is a NEET because they don't care about their lives. Maybe they just don't feel like working. For example, in my case I'm just fucking lazy when it comes to work and grades, but because I understand how the body works I can't neglect it by eating just anything I like or not exercising.
This is why people joke about being neet on facebook. Because you think being a neet is a good thing. If people realize how horrible it is they wouldn't joke about it. Do you see anyone joke about being alcoholics? No because they've seen alcoholics and it's not pretty.
>caring about their body or what they put in their mouths.
Most depressed people who are skinny are skinny because they don't have an appetite anymore. Not because they somehow can summon the will and discipline to follow a diet.
Girls idea of being NEET is sucking her husbands cock and being a housewife.
TrueNEET girls don't exist. Hikimori girls aren't real either, aslong as you aren't a virgin you're a normalfag before everything else.
>sucking her husbands cock and being a housewife.
Sometimes I regret that I started lifting to bulk up my little manlet body instead of becoming one of those. I was so close that I found a 40+ year old on the internet who wanted me to suck his 7 inch dick but then I chickened out and never replied.
I would have been just like the slutty cock slaves in my doujins.
Looks like there's a cute NEET coming up in that Punchline anime in spring.
Normally I would agree with you. Even failed women have a tendency to just stumble into relationships and experience the world through their man.
But in case of neets I've seen it for myself. Girls who are just too sensitive for a cruel and vulgar world that wants to tell them dick jokes. They live with their mothers and stay the fuck away from the world in pure self-defense.
>portraying characters looks well
Because no one, including NEETs themselves, wants to see a fatass faggoty junk food munching soda gobbling waste of space, oxygen and genetic material sitting on a computer 24/7, watching anime and doing absolutely nothing of value. NEETs don't want to be constantly reminded that they're failures at everything and that they will eventually kill themselves, so they try ignoring the issue, denying it, what have you, it's just a coping mechanism and since the majority of jap NEETs mooch off of their parents who are too much of a pussies to do anything about their dumbshit of a son, the anime studios just give the NEETs what they want, i.e. a cute NEET girl that they can relate to and feel better about themselves, then these fucknuggets throw their parents' money at the studios by buying figs, overpriceed BDs, merch and other bullshit like dakimakuras. Good thing actually being a NEET out in the open is very frowned upon in Japan and pretty much in the rest of the world, so these fags come out of their basements when the media needs to poke fun at them like at that David-kun and other similar fatass NEET trash.
>i-i'm not mad that I can't spend literally all my time pursuing whatever I choose to
>I bet you're a greasy, overweight neckbeard! Believing that is better than the realization that an average person gets to have fun all the time while I'm working my monkey fingers to the bone!
Yeah, you're upset. It's understandable, if I was a slave, I would be too.
So much self-projection!
Do you feel a little better now that you've let it all out?
Not so much mad, more like amused at how angry just seeing the word "NEET" can make someone claiming not to be bitter so angry.
You mean /fit/, moron. People who watch sports are fat old fucks.
Whoa, calm down there aspie and go take your pills, no need to get so angry over someone telling your the truth. Go circlejerk in the local waifu thread or you might have a heartattack at this rate.
You clearly are mad at NEETs. People who don't care don't go on tirades on anonymous anime imageboards. You can wave it off as "I'm better than them!" all you like. Even if you think yourself superior, you can still be mad at them, which you obviously are.
>not doing anything during winter break
EL OH EL I'm such a NEET
Implying that's true, you're more than likely fat as shit if you can squat that much but bench high schooler weight.
If you're over eighteen and a male and you can't bench 200lbs or more, you're weak as shit. Most adult men weigh somewhere between 145-180, but if you can't even lift your own bodyweight, you're seriously stunted.
Always thought anime is often pretty bad at conveying ugliness or prettiness.
Like they'll have a character who is lauded as a "beauty", but the "normal" girls will look basically the same.
Look at Parasyte, they have some ugly bitches in that show. That's a good thing.
>Stay mad that you have to work like an animal all day when you already have so little time on this earth.
Tried that once, never again.
You don't have any time for anything. That's no way to live. I will take the NEET lifestyle over that any day.
You just reminded me of a prank call I heard a long time ago where the guy is trying to buy shock collars for his babysitting job. The woman asks him how many collars he needs, and he starts talking about how his phone can do call waiting.
Man, I miss being a kid.
>Look at Parasyte, they have some ugly bitches in that show.
Pic related is a good example.
It's refreshing having such an unattractive character.
>High school girls presented as chaste
>Japanese presented as white
I can think of ten other problems more pressing than this if you want to talk reality.
I don't think she's unattractive at all. She's at least average. I thought you were going to say Murano, with her weird ass, elementary schooler hairstyle.
These people don't even know that flavor of the cheap-ass kappumen and cans what burns into your memory forever. They don't know to make your choices extremely carefully and think about what you buy like 3 times. The restrictions you must make. The visible marks of not enough sleep and shitty life. Insomnia, depression, stomach and headaches on daily basis. Your own goddamn brain won't let you sleep.
Its not like I wan't them to know what is this, but I hate when they joke about it.
I am actually at that "rehab" status recovering while doing some slight exercises nearly daily. I don't feel I can work yet, but its more than nothing.
I just remember way too well that bottom point, I was there one year ago.
because a lot of neets eat poorly, smoke/drink, spend large amounts of time staring at a monitor, and more often than not perform very little physical activity.
I myself spend a lot of time exercising, but it's more of an anomaly that there's a rich neet who has all of his needs accounted for by someone else. A lot of us are on our own for the most part.
How do neets live then in your case? I've had a period when I dropped out of college and spent 6 months doing nothing, albeit it was a short amount of time I've assumed from that most neets live on their parents cash.
I'd say a large chunk of them either live at home or their parents pay for an apartment. My bux really only get me enough money to pay rent and buy food and cigarettes, but I have maybe $100 or more to spend each month on dumb shit.
This is why people don't like socialism.
I'd everyone we were supporting was some sort of down on their luck bishounen who just needed to get by, then nobody would care. But one drive down skid row (with the top up and the doors locked, obviously) will show you that they're mostly fat useless lazy assholes who just smoke and pop out future criminals and single mothers.
But, it isn't something I like to concern myself with. My cousin is a neet; she hasn't done anything in four years. She sleeps all day. She will be fine because she will get married and be cared for. I'd like to do what I want when I want, but I cannot bear to be a burden on my family. Hence, engineering degree.
It isn't so bad. You work your 8 hours and rake in comfortable money and do what you will with it.
You said you had a period and dropped out of school and became a complete bum as a result. Hundreds if not thousands of people have periods sometimes and they just wad up an old sock in their knickers and get on with their lives. How did it destroy you so completely?
The spending money doesn't come from bux, I get that on my own.
I don't really eat anything besides 99 cent yakisoba and really base foods like milk and eggs. I steal a large chunk of my cigarettes each month from my great aunt whenever I go to visit my grandpa, but I don't really smoke that much. I go through a pack in a little over a week. Rent is cheap too, because I live in a shitty neighborhood and my apartment is really fucking small. Like, a mattress, a desk, and a TV are all I can really fit in here. The rest of the space is filled with boxes that have all my stuff in them. Hopefully someone in my family will die and I'll be able to move into a bigger place. It's really not a hard life to keep up.
I honestly think women should be NEET, if I was a normalfag I'd want my wife to have a comfortable life and take care of the house while I went to work. The idea of being able to support someone and make them happy seems nice to me.
My mother was a NEET when I was a kid, and she seemed a lot happier. Once I started school, she had to get a job.
I've never seen someone do a complete 180 like that since, she's as depressed as I am. NEETness is godliness.
>This is why people don't like socialism
Could not agree harder. The only thing motivating me to eventually get out of the NEET hole is the fact that I abhor welfare leeching. I don't want to have to resort to it eventually, because I've seen literal daily patrons at a bar whose only income was welfare. It's fucking disgusting.
I dunno if he's being retarded on purpose, but he thinks you meant time-of-the-month period, not period of time.
My mother was the opposite. She was a wonderful housewife and raised my sister and I very well, but she became very depressed, feeling that she had not accomplished anything and had no value beyond her value to us. I understand what she means. She got a job and is now a terrifyingly ripped personal trainer who could easily beat the shit out of me. She is much happier having something to do.
My mom had five kids with five different men, abandoned all of them, and has spent most of her time doing drugs and gambling.There's nothing comfortable or pleasant about her strain of NEET, it's as disgusting as you can get.
Sage for sob story.
>while I went to work.
My mother lives alone though.
She recently started faking psychological problems so the state doesn't force her to get back into working, and just spends more of the tax money supporting her.
I'm a NEET and I already got my degree ages ago, stop being a little faggot and get yours, anon.
CS, EE, SE are the only degrees worth pursuing.
>>Why are NEETs presented as pretty girls in anime?
For the same reasons military craft, nation states, and eldritch horrors are presented as pretty girls in anime: Because Japan makes anime, and they like pretty girls.
been NEET for 10 years , being a female its easy to claim benefits , I told my GP that I am scared of muslims (mostly somalian men) and that I fear for my life every time I leave the house , also the fact that I live in London means I can't really go outside, in theraphy on and off for the last 8 years , I get £240 every 2 weeks so I can still survive and I don't need to be around other people , fact is that what I told her is the truth ;_;
hate where this country is going....but I love it because it looks after me and I can stay at home and not starve to death , don't know what I would do if my money got cut , I am so scared of being around people , I aways say stupid things and get all red in the face
>I swear, my family really needs to hurry up with the death thing. It'd be smooth sailing if they finally dropped.
Yea, I get you. Everything fixed itself up when my mother and sister died.
Pretty girls face dirty and petty attack, especially from ugly girls.
I personally witness a dirty smear by an ugly girl against a pretty girl, just because this pretty girl wear fashionable dress and look cute, ugly girl call her a shallow attention whore.
Pretty girls get hurt and feel like they have no place in this world, so they end up as hikky.
I have a job and am going to school but I watch anime and stay at home a lot and sometimes I only go party once a month.
Am I a NEET honestly? I feel like because I am such a computer nerd and I am a neet.
Who are you to decide who is neet or not? I am a neet if I feel like it
Is this your typical neet?
Get your terms under control /a/
Is anyone on /a/ actually a NEET/Hikki because of anxiety or other medical problems?
Get a job doing accessioning/aliquoting for a lab. It's an entry level job that requires no degree and little interaction with other people. Depending on where you go pay and benefits are decent too. Plus you can make people believe you have a real job doing something worthwhile. Just don't work for LabCorp if you can help it. Heard shitty things about them.
Living with parents and receiving autism bucks.
