What is more dangerous? The Japanese cold or Japanese trucks?
It's a very convenient way of killing a young and otherwise healthy character in a modernized society without putting the blame on another character in the story. In essence, it fills the same niche that diseases like diptheria and scarlet fever did in 18th century American literature in that they mainly affect children and adolescents and have a high chance of killing or crippling them- giving them a blameless death when required by the story.
how comes wapanese don't have big trucks?
its an island nation with mountainous terrain, they don't have that much transportation via truck, most of the stuff is shipped, and the rest is done by train, only short range deliveries are done with smaller trucks
They seem deadlier.
You've never seen the standard group of people having a conversation in a car then you see a truck run a red light right into the side of the car shot from inside the car during the accident?
Because they happen enough in real life. I live in a small town of 11k people in central California and I have personally witnessed four separate traffic accidents over the last fiveish years. I even saw a little girl get hit by a buick that had two ancient women in it talking like idiots. People need their licenses revoked the instant they turn 60
I feel like I've seen this somewhere before.
Only scumbags and bicyclists are victims of traffic accidents. In other words, if you get hit by a car you deserved it
Maybe Togashi is afraid of trucks, like how Araki is afraid of cats.
>yusuke wasn't there
You don't choose where you live on an arbitrary basis. I know this is difficult for underage fucks to understand, but everything you do in life costs something, and moving tends to be especially expensive.
So either you are underage retard who calls himself a libertarian, or you are trolling.
>I don't think you even see car accidents in american stories as much as trucks in japanese stuff though
The reason is that Americans usually ride cars. They hardly ever walk or use public transport.
Thus car accidents (while being on the pedestrian/receiving end) are extemely unlikely to happen.
Because maybe he doesn't want to uproot his entire life just to live somewhere that has slightly cheaper rent? Maybe he has a decent enough job that he can easily spend his entire life indoors and not have to deal with california as a whole? Maybe he's so fucking poor like everyone else in california that isn't a baby boomer the only possible way to leave is to either become a career criminal or join the military?
I'll ask again, are you fucking retarded or just trying to fit in? This isn't /pol/ by the way
>Implying truck-kun doesn't want to help by taking you to Neo-Venezia
HGVs are disproportionately lethal.
Japan's road infrastructure routes heavy traffic through residential and commercial areas, which HGVs are a large part of.
So they feature in manga as a cheap, familiar device for plot.
Glad your parents bought your car for you and supported your ass while you looked for a place to live in another state. Good job, you pulled the winning ticket in life. You should be proud.
>Son of the baby boomer generation
Thanks for being one of the many things that ruined CA permanently. Now all we all have to do is gas everyone in san fran and we'll be on our way
Are you kidding me? I don't even have a car today, and they certainly didn't help me move out of state.
It's not about cheaper rent, it's that the entire culture and legal system are completely fucked there.
>mommy bike BSO tier bike
>Using an inappropiate bag when cycling
>Not looking to the sides before starting moving
He totally deserved it.
The Japanese Truck is known to inhabit the mysterious roads of Japan and no one really knows how this illusive predator came to be. Once thought to be a myth, these shy and rather titan like creatures often feast on unsuspecting preys, such as the japanese schoolgirl or any weak male that so wanders into the road, to which they use to tackle and devour its prey. Once the Japanese truck locks on its prey, it waits for the signal before approaching at a swift speed, in a furious pursuit to gather a daily feast. Once the prey is captured, the hard working truck will bring the carcass to its younglings, ensuring that they are well fed and too grow to be like their father.
Stay tuned, for another marvelous journey of Japan's wild life, with next week's episode "The Tentacle Monster and its breeding habits"
Jaywalking is literally the easiest thing in the world, just don't be an idiot and you won't wind up dead. You can trust me, I've jaywalked an 8 lane street.
Just think this, "these cars don't have the balls to hit me." You'll be just fine.
>Thus car accidents (while being on the pedestrian/receiving end) are extemely unlikely to happen.
They happen plenty often (fatal hit & runs seem to pop up in my newsfeed at least once a week), but out-of-left-field blameless deaths aren't really terribly popular in American writing anymore, outside of that niche genre of young readers' books designed to acclimatize preteens to the idea of mortality.
After following the archive to a post that was a reply to another post that featured a page from another doujinshi by the same author who I identified via reverse image search I was able to check the list of the author's works for Himawari books for the answer.
And that's what you should have done in the first place.
Nips are pretty self concerned man
I once read an article(that came along with video proof) about how a child was left on the road to die after getting run over. And not only were there a ton of passerbyers who saw the body and just ignored it there were also some who outright RAN OVER THE BODY again. It look like an hour or some shit for an old lady to call for help.
The guessed main reason for this? Because they thought the victim would try and place the blame for the injury on their savior
A truck once challenged Onii-Sama.
It was never heard from again.
I'm not, it's more of a China and Korea problem. I know Japan has a lot of designated areas that don't allow a lot of traffic or have it blocked off for pedestrians on certain days.
>The guessed main reason for this? Because they thought the victim would try and place the blame for the injury on their savior
It actually happens a lot in China. As morbid as it sounds, they were trying to protect themselves.
A truck is even strong enough to damage a divine combat android
Guide to preventing a little girl's death-by-truck:
>create sentient magical artifact capable of absorbing powerful spells
>add regeneration and resurrection magic to the artifact
>add a self-defense program to the artifact
>let the artifact grow to planet-killer powerlevels and absorb additional utility-spells over time
>soul-bond artifact to little girl
Congratulations, she will be protected from the truck now
>crippling atrophy from magic-syphoning effects
>increasing need to absorb mana from living beings
Recommended followup treatment:
>failure to administer followup treatment may lead to planetary destruction
I always see in anime those little kids walking about alone, even preschoolers. Is this common in Japan?
I live in a very dangerous city and I remember neither me or my friends were allowed to go to school alone until high school, so 15 or 16 y/o.
And you never see a kid alone here.
you got me, though
There should be an anime about a hired killer using truck to kill his victims.
MC is a truck driver, after killer kills his love interest they both have a fight and crush trucks into each other.
It'd be like No More Heroes, a association of truck drivers who kill oblivious girls crossing the road for plot purposes. They are hired to give people tragic backstories. Occasionally they fight with trucks.
Japan pls. You made autonomous robots but still hasn't touched autonomous truck robots?
The robot uprising will be paved in the blood of Japanese schoolgirls.
