Have you ever learned anything useful from anime? Other than random Japanese phrases.
Knowing your blood type is much more important than I previously thought.
After finding out my blood type, I put it on all of my online dating profiles and found my soulmate within an hour.
I learned some stuff about the guitar from K-On!! but nothing I couldn't google.
>I put it on all of my online dating profiles and found my soulmate within an hour.
I learned that fat old men need loving too!
I have yet to try eating watermelon with salt. When I have had the melon I have forgotten to add salt, and whenI remember the salt I possess no melons. If it turns out to be a good combo, then yes.
As an American, I never really had a good sense of scale for the metric system until I watched Shingeki no Kyojin. When they did the little scene on how all the titans were either 5 meters tall, 10 meters tall, or 15 meters tall, comparing those heights to the buildings and the characters on the show gave me a rough scale for how meters scale.
Before, all I knew was that people were almost always approximately a little less than two meters, but comparing the size of the titans to the buildings etc. gave me a better sense of how larger sizes stack up. Shame the show wasn't very good, though.
I learned that 2D > 3DPD. Also learned that it doesn't matter if it's a boy or a girl, as long as it's cute.
Mythology (greek, nordic), rules for a lot of sports (soccer, tennis, baseball, ping-pong), animal and human biology, cooking.
Japanese mangakas love to make a lot of research about anything, I think I can say they taught me more than my own parents in much more areas.
Not even speaking about japanese itself, as I'm living in Japan and well, no doubt it's useful.
yep, that childhood friends never win
>Shame the show wasn't very good
Not directly from anime, but after awhile having anime as a hobby lead to not giving a shit what people think about my hobbies.
I used to care that I freakishly hid everything relating to anime, nowdays I don't shove it in peoples faces but I don't care if people see my animu wallpaper or if they find out I have a few figures.
Or that I love drawing animu like a 12 y/o.
Im proud I dont recognize anything but One Piece out of that, and I haven't even watched that
I learned that japan has a really shitty work ethic, and the reason why there is so much media from japan about high school is because that was the last time an average japanese person had any freedom.
I learned of our Lord and Savior, Onii-Sama
learned the names of many of the 206 bones in the human body
Animals/human corpses will still react to painful stimuli even after decapitation
i had to fucking see for myself, I caught a lizard outside and decapitated it, waited until it stopped moving completely then waited 2 more minutes, and burned the tail with my lighter. Myth confirmed, it started flailing everywhere and shit.I'm now an EMT
I learned that 3D women are awful. Really, really awful. Practically inhuman.
Lots of little things about japanese culture.
Students clean the classrooms.
Sneezing means someone is thinking about you.
Blood type supposedly indicates personality.
It's rude not to give someone your name.
Lots of stuff about shinto and buddhism.
>sneezing means someone is thinking about you
I guess that's why I never sneeze
It stops reacting to pain after awhile as well. I don't know the exact time, but you still have reflexive action, and decapitation has no impact on that.
So things like sexual arousal and pain still cause a reaction.
Even with stimuli? About 15-20 minutes IIRC
It was dead still after I decapitated it, i picked it up and thumped it, nothing. Then as I said I waited a couple more minutes then burned the tail and it scared the shit out of me flailing everywhere
Well, the human body works kinda different, when our spines are severed we lost reflexes for some time (days-weeks) and then eventually recover them (assuming we don't die), that only works in frogs and stuff because their nervous systems are more primitive.
I learned the best girls are/were actually boys.
But I don't give my name to strangers on the street. (yeah >me going on the street)
Come to think of it, I rarely ever give my name. I can't remember the last time I did.
And obviously being a 4chan browsing shut-in definitely has nothing at all to do with it
But in Anime they don't give their names to strangers on the street either. Only to people they get introduced to, or people they want to get acquainted with, like in any culture.
Or just learn some school biology
Lizards can also cut off their tail while running from a prey and it flails pretty wildly to distract the prey. It does so for a very long time after detachment
You should have known this by the time you passed high school
Here in South America they say that when your ears itch it's because someone it's talking about you. If it's the left ear they are saying good things, but if it's the right ear they are talking bad about you.
I learned some Chinese History thanks to reading Kingdom
And I guess stretching techniques thanks to that one quasi yuri manga with the yoga girl and her senpai
I guess it also made me less ignorant of Japanese culture but more delusional at the same time
>Japanese mangakas love to make a lot of research about...
After actually doing extensive research on mythology from all corners of the world, I can safely say that Japan loves name-dropping Mythical figures because "it's so cool!" but doesn't actually know anything about it beyond that.
I already knew the Japanese police were pretty shit, but I also learned from Sakurako's Boner that they're too lazy to do proper autopsies and tend to call most deaths suicides. Also a couple of Biology and bone related things.
Not directly from the anime. I found this when I lurking in TV Tropes
The depiction of their dysfunction is supposedly too extreme to be believable. In fact, the main trio's personalities match up very well to genuine mental problems, to the point where it seems probable that they were consciously modeled after them. Shinji seems to have avoidant personality disorder, Asuka narcissistic personality disorder and Rei schizoid personality disorder
D-does it mean I can find my 3D Rei?
I learned they sit at tables designed for midgets and have a stupid obsession with switching shoes before entering a building....christ, who cares? My "outdoor" shoes ruined your floor, so clean it you lazy Jap bastard!
I came to that conclusion long before I even started watching anime, back when I was in high school myself. I think I did an essay on it or something.
no matter how much you say you won't watch cute shit you do end up watching cute shit
and like it
Reminder that this tripfag is a fucking idiot.
Lain taught me about Project Xanadu. Shame it didn't become a thing.
