This is a Japanese middleschool textbook.
Why does western art pale so much in comparison?
>you will never go back in time and get seduced by your sexual gaijin sensei
Japanese the manga way has several QTs like Natsuko, or like >>139656070
said there is always mary-san but she lost my respect when she started smoking.
>You will never have a cute 2D sensei drawn all over your textbooks to ease you into subjects.
Fuck, all I had growing up was a steaming pile of nothing, badly drawn cartoons or goddamn pictures of a multiracial group of "hip" kids smiling or laughing plastered all over.
Please post more, I want to know more about Baker-Sensei. Doesn't even need to be pictures.
We already had the moe craze get with the times gooks
This is now a Boston thread. You can only post here if you speak with a Boston accent. All New England bros welcome, except those hicks from northern Maine.
Cambridge reporting in.
Texas you flithy animal.
Can't wait until we secede the LONE STAR is all that matters.
>ding dong people with a Bostonian accent
>Doesn't actually know anything
>Pretends he knows anything about patriotism
Yeah, Texas sounds about right. I've worked with people from Texas before, and they're some of the slowest and stupidest people I've met. How do you guys ever get anything done when you're too busy taking breaks every 15 minutes to avoid accidentally doing any work?
Best place in the USA we just have to kill or deport all spics then truly the golden age will begin again.
Good luck gringo
Tejas is ours once again
I had a year in New York two years back.
I used to go to the cinemas quite often as it's very cheap in the states. I could not believe there were legitimately people who clapped at the end...
I truly that it was a shitposting meme
>Literally where the best schools in the world and the smartest people on the planet father
>The entire biotech industry comes here
>Birthplace of the Country
>A bunch of fat, lazy idiots who are really loud about how stupid they are
Good for you.
>How else will you get good Mexican-American food?
Sell my soul for food? My gramps told me only a villain gone with the devil would give his birth place up for a lunch.
>babues like they were aliens
You'll need to get rid of all your gays too.
Don't act like SLC doesn't have gays either, we both know.
>Can't actually rebuttal a single point
Texans are the retards? Guess you don't attend one of those " best schools in the world," huh? At least I hope you don't. Not exactly one of the "smartest people on the planet" are you?
You also show an intense lack of knowledge about the state you unreasonably hate so much.
>Texans are the retards?
Yes. You did not actually refute anything I stated. We have better universities and smarter people here, I work at one of these universities as a scientist, and the birthplace of the country was here. These are facts. You've done nothing but scream "Fuck yeah Texas is awesome!"
You and your entire state are retarded.
That's what I am saying I don't have a clue how these fucking dregs showed up or even survived.
Look my point still stands we need Operation Wetback #2
MINNESOTA HAIL TO THEE!
HAIL TO THEE OUR STATE SO DEAR!
>I don't have a clue how these fucking dregs showed up
Pretty sure they were always there it's just getting harder to sweep under the rug like the occasional pedophilia and child abuse was.
Please Eisenhower those damn spics are taking our waifus!
>We have better universities
This is only by nature of being in the oldest part of the country and being among the first universities.
>smarter people here
>birthplace of the country was here
Again, this is only by virtue of being one of the oldest places of settlement. It's also meaningless to the debate.
We have tons of our own uniquely Texan, German, Spanish, and Mexican history. We have a majority of the nation's fastest growing cities. We have numerous impressive institutions of our own. More people are moving her than any other state. We are home to over 50 of the fortune 500 companies. We have the second highest GDP of the states. We have numerous impressive, diverse cities. We have more going on culturally than any other state bar California or New York.
Keep cheering about the Red Sox or whatever, lol.
Yeah and you will loose it like that clown Santana again.
REMEMBER THE ALAMO
Good luck with that mate, you know nobody wants to split a family like that. Hell my cousin recently got incarcerated for molesting a minor (yaoi) but my aunt and uncle aren't ostracizing him or anything. Fortunately the judge showed some leniency because he confessed it all and apologized instead of lying.
>This is only
This is an excuse. It does not refute anything.
Oh really? Where are the equivalents of Harvard and MIT in Texas?
>Again, this is only by
More excuses. Didn't think you had an actual rebuttal.
>It's also meaningless to the debate.
When some fucking idiot brought up patriotism here
it absolutely is.
Didn't realize I was speaking with a Mexican intellectual. I'll let you get back to your siesta now.
Hold the chalk sideways and write with the sides. Makes those pointlessly thick lines that benefit the blind but make the board a mess to erase later.
Yeah, I noticed that clothes design art like this gets that nice 2d look. Same goes with stuff from 50s cooking books and home living as well as some art deco illustrations. Makes sense when you consider that Disney's alice was probably a big inspiration for aliconism, the progenitor of modern loliconism.
>It only became shit when we got invaded by /pol/ when GG happened
GG made it worse, but you can't honestly believe this unless you're so new that you came in around the same time as GG.
Maple goes on fruits, vegetables, meat, ice cream, cakes, everything!
>I should be allowed to be an obnoxious faggot wherever I want!
Even 2D girls have feelings man no bully.
My grades wouldn't have been nearly as bad in Middle School if we had this text book.
Fuck it I probably would have done better if they put stupid American characters in there.
>all these anons saying 2 a best
Which one? It says 2 twice. Here, I made this easier for everyone.
Is D a trap?
This is probably playing on the fact that whenever Canadians travel to foreign countries, we have to distinguish ourselves from US citizens so the locals don't mistake us for retards.
>all these exposed legs
Jesus Christ what happened to modesty in the 60s?
I dunno, have a slav textbook I guess. I like to post this.
>last SLC mayor race between a fag-enabler and an actual fag
>the fag won
shm desu senpai.
All the degenerates flow into SLC because it's the only place in hundreds of miles with anything approaching a "night life". Provo can get kind of bad downtown on the weekends, because of >muh music scene and UVU being "the college for people that couldn't get into BYU".
>Not being a leg-man
Legs are the most graceful part of the female body.
How did they not have a teen pregnancy epidemic then but we do now? Good lord those ladies are just asking for it, I mean look at the smug on that right one there.
God damn that was hilarious, and I'm latino.
I wouldn't say it reduces the allure. Rather I would say that pantyhose enhances the allure that already exists.
The invention of the colored photograph almost killed art as a profession.
They're a good talking point since most local people can't shut up about it.
I'm not a local, so the boston sports fervor is pretty annoying when it hits its peak. Nobody cares about >my teams though so I just play along.
I just say "No. I don't care at all."
I can get away with it because I'm /fit/ and it confuses sports fans because they can't do the whole "Ha! What are you, a nerd?" thing. Though I work in a lab, so everyone's a nerd anyways.
Go to /pol/ with a mexican proxy and post about Americans needing gun control.
he could be referring to the war Hartford Convention during the War of 1812, where the New England states flirted with the idea of secession and allying with the British against the then Southern dominated United States.
This feels more like an /int/ thread
Mexicans talk shit about America being dangerous because of muh gun control, but Mexico has an insanely high murder rate with drug cartels literally decapitating people before, during and after they kill them.
Engels drew this in the mid 19th century.
Doesn't that mean oil or something? or oiling a car?
Globalization was the best thing to happen to Japan
Preferred his party scenes desu
That's a little unfair. While Japan may have been a relative latecomer to perspective techniques, by the 17th century they were definitely exploring it, and the woodblock prints of the Utagawa school were quite good. The Kuniyoshi prints in particular show great technical artistry. Furthermore, it's also a kind of artstyle that is meant to be stylized; you wouldn't call, say, Cubism bad art, would you?
Oh, yeah. I completely agree with you on everything you said. Art is obviously subjective and the image is a prime example of the cherry picking fallacy. It's just a silly image, I honestly would not, nor expect anyone to take it seriously.
>you wouldn't call, say, Cubism bad art, would you?
Yes. Yes, I would.
I used to collect a fucktonne of Soviet shit for years, picture books, posters etc, anything I could get my hand on.
You would be surprised how much Soviet art especially in picture books and such would not look out of place in a manga.
In fact, one little known fact is how much the modern anime aesthetic was taken from Soviet art, probably the single most influential thing for the modern anime art style is the Soviet Film the The Snow Queen, many major anime artists cite it as the defining influential work for the modern anime art style.
>you wouldn't call, say, Cubism bad art, would you?
There's a lot of people that would, /a/non. Not saying I am, but a lot of people equate "not-technically-true-to-life" with "bad."
Their improving the translation over time is pretty funny.
Sadly have jack shit on me atm. Most of my surviving stuff is on the portable hard drive at my friends.
If that wasn't the case I would love to share it.
Hey, um, why does the girl on the right have a drop on her thigh?
They're in the tropics, it must be hot outside.
A deal's a deal
Was waiting for this to get posted.
Why aren't you learning Japanese, anon?
fucking canaada fucking shit........ i wipe my ass with canada leaf. i sooner kill myself than call canada neighbor. pic related is canada falling down stairs
Whoa there Aussie I think you've had quite enough leafposting tonight.
so what happened to artstyle of using thin lines in the west?
sage way too many /pol/fags in this thread burn it
I have this book, its pretty interesting and goes into more detail about visual storytelling than one usually finds in these kinds of how to draw books.
God bless Japan, the lewds are emerging.
I was waiting for this
Th result is satisfying
None, Japanese little girls aren't anywhere near as cute as 2d.
True story though, I ran into one of my high school students when shopping for loli eroge. Or rather I should day, he noticed me, and I had to bribe him to keep him from telling anyone.
Nope. I am a relatively manly dude (compared to dudes in Japan, I am apparently overtly manly, back home I was just a bit rugged)
I know some other ALTs in my area who ARE cute girls. The cutest is a redhead.
>True story though, I ran into one of my high school students when shopping for loli eroge. Or rather I should day, he noticed me, and I had to bribe him to keep him from telling anyone.
You're fucked, anon. The police are already outside your door.
>I ran into one of my high school students when shopping for loli eroge. Or rather I should day, he noticed me, and I had to bribe him to keep him from telling anyone.
And what exactly was he doing there?
I would honestly say 40/40/20.
40% ugly, 40% average, 20% drop dead fucking gorgeous.
The advantage isn't that there are more beautiful women, the advantage is that by virtue of being American (as long as you are not a fat fuck or a slob) you are pretty much instantly the alpha male. Most male Japs are either old fucks and already tied down, or nearly as beta (but not as quite) as portrayed in anime.
read this: >>139675007
Almost blew it there.
For the most part its under control. Everyone knows I play tons of video games, but that isn't really an issue with anyone as long as you do your job well.
Yeah, I used to go to a relatively local place in Osaka (which is about a 30 minute train ride from where I am- Nishinomiya-shi) but now I take no chances. I go at least two towns over now. At first I tried Wakayama, but that shit is just fucking deserted. I went to Akiba once, but ended up spending way to much, and had multiple embarrassing train trips back home trying to hide what was in the bags from inquisitive people trying to get a peek at the foreigner with 20 shopping bags.
If I remember right there technically isn't any laws regarding age restriction of porn in Japan. Like the companies conceded to people voicing concerns about their products and self-regulated by putting 18+ stamps and such on their works but it isn't actually illegal.
Or at least that was the situation a decade or two ago. I don't know about now.
>and had multiple embarrassing train trips back home trying to hide what was in the bags from inquisitive people trying to get a peek at the foreigner with 20 shopping bags.
Just out of curiosity, how do you plan to hide this stuff from customs when you go back home?
>Most male Japs are either old fucks and already tied down, or nearly as beta (but not as quite) as portrayed in anime.
I find this a little difficult to accept, but there's also the Japanese demographic crisis. I wonder how many actual Japanese cakes are out there.
>white guy going on the trains with 20 bags full of porn
Evil of course. I seduced a few nip women. Its not hard at all. Getting milfy Japanese ladies to sleep with you is easy as fuck. Japan is NOT for you if you fear NTR. DO NOT sleep with the milfy ladies in the town you are teaching in though. Someone did that in Kyoto last year and pretty much got kicked out of Japan. It was really bullshit SHAMEFRUL DISPRAY kind of stuff since it had nothing at all to do with his job, but for real, do not sleep with married woman anywhere in your school district if you dont want to get fired.
According to him he was walking to Mcdonalds and saw me enter the building and followed me. I am pretty sure he was in there to grab some sort of Eroge though. Either way its not illegal for him to do so, but considering my story above about how people have gotten fired before for sleeping around, I do not want to risk stories of me picking up loli eroge to be used against me and make me lose my job.
>but ended up spending way to much, and had multiple embarrassing train trips back home trying to hide what was in the bags from inquisitive people trying to get a peek at the foreigner with 20 shopping bags.
You're not manly and scary enough. It doesn't matter how many bags I carry on the train out of Akiba, I've never had anyone so much as glance towards my bags. I'm a monster by western standards. In Japan I might as well be Godzilla.
yeah, thats how it works
yep, although in this case, it was a local store that focused on selling more adult oriented software.
I don't plan on coming home, but if I do come home, I will probably leave it behind or sell it. Believe it or not, I shit you not, there are stores here that sell used Eroge. Basically think trading in Gamestop games, but its all porn games.
This is all generalizing, so take it with a grain of salt- The typical age groups I encounter are the school aged ones, the cakes who still live in the inaka with their husband, or the old ass obasans. In the cities there are much more young people, since they all go there for either work and college, because no one seems to like the smaller cities, suburbs, or inaka other than the 35+ years old.
yep. If I am going to pay roughly 100$ on a bullet train to Akiba, I am going to make the most of the experience and get as much as I can carry.
yeah, most anime stuff is nothing at all like real life, but there are some things that are pretty close to reality. General rule of thumb- assume nothing before coming, have an open mind, and be adaptable to any situation.
>I do not want to risk stories of me picking up loli eroge to be used against me and make me lose my job
I totally understand that. Wasn't aware of where such things could be purchased in Japan, I had assumed there would be dedicated stores for it. That sucks, but I imagine there's really no incentive for him to go out and report something like that. Hopefully he graduates and forgets all about you without incident.
Have you been keeping up with your studies?
they will either stare or ignore you. Those are the two modes of Japanese passerby, there is no inbetween.
But you dont have to worry, they wont interrupt you or get in your way, just stare and try to figure out what you are doing.
I think he was mostly using it as an opportunity to poke fun at me. I do not think he understands how much such a thing might damage my situation though.
You here too? What prefecture do you live in? Maybe we could meet up sometime?
>I'm a monster by western standards. In Japan I might as well be Godzilla.
How big that? I'm 6'2" and I consider that above average.
If I had to list my reasons for wanting to go to Japan, this would be one of them.
Ohio here, I'm glad you got bombed by two little mudslime ruskies, bunch of fucked mouth irish you are.
Learn to talk right.
>You here too? What prefecture do you live in? Maybe we could meet up sometime?
In the middle of Tokyo, but I've met a lot of ALTs, and you strike me as the somewhat sleazy whiteguy who comes solely for the porn and to try to fool around with married women/choroi joshi on the streets type. I don't really want to hang out with you.
It's not so much the height as it is the large muscles and aggressive beard. They just don't have people that are that manly here.
>Everyone from Boston is Irish
>Being glad that innocent people died in a terrorist attack in your own fucking country of all places
I knew you were one of the stupider trips here, but holy shit.
