Why is Japan so obsessed with blood types?

Do you find yourself identifying more with characters who have the same blood type as you?
>>

Like birthsigns and all that bull blood types apparently have personality types and compatibility malarkey. It's not strictly a Japanese thing.
Real question though is why do so characters all have such rare blood types?
>>
>>139680281
It's not just Japanese though, Koreans also pretty obsessed about it too.
>>
>>139680402
Because certain blood types are associated with certain personalities.

Japs are into pegan shit due to the infuence of their shinto religion.

>>139680281

if you have ab type blood you're literally cancer

>>139680646
Kinda answered my own question there still just seems a simple O type is the rarest in anime.

>Why is Japan so obsessed with blood types?
Because they wrongly believe that these things have an impact on personality. It's a dumb superstition that can sadly lead to discrimination.
>>
>>139680832
>no type O condom listed
Guess we like to do it raw. Makes sense.
>>
because of the relatively balanced ratio
>>
>>139682736
Superstition and discrimination are japans two favorite things its common sense that bloodtypes would catch on.
>>
i dont even know what blood type i have
>>
>>139683449
You should find out anyway, just in case you ever need a blood transfusion.

It's actually a legacy of the biological experiments carried out by unit 731.

A fat lot of people are like that.
>>
>>139680281
It's amusing how many guidebooks give the characters blood type based on their personality.
This leads to dumb situations like Gaara having AB, Kankuro having B and Temari having O, which is impossible since they're suposed to be siblings with the same parents.

What a loveable guy.
>>
>>139683636
That's actually completely possible, allow me to demonstrate.
i=recessive, so if there's an A or B you have A or B, but if you have two i's you have O.
Dad's Genotype: A i
Mom's Genotype: B i

Now if we do a punnet square of all the possible offspring combinations, you can see that

__B__i__
A|AB|A i
i |B i |i i

There is a 25% chance for every single blood type from this combination.
>>
>>139683449
Same here.
>>
>>139683449

Same, kind of curious now though.

You probably don't choose to be communist if you don't have at least some empathy.

I don't even fucking remember mine

The history of Japan's obsession with blood types is long, and surprisingly dark. It basically started from a Meiji-era eugenics program. You can read up about this stuff online.
>>
>>139680281
I don't even know what mine is
>>
>>139680281
It's the same shit as star signs m8. It doesn't seem as big these days though
>>
>>139680281
Also, what's Mami's blood type?

Forgot your trip there, derp.

>Homu (A) : Why are you putting lemon juice on fried chicken without any permission!!
>Kyou (B) : What..? It gets more delicious when you put.
>Mado (O) : I am fine with either.
>Saya (AB) : This parsley really is yummy!!
>>
>>139683501
Good gookaboo.
>>
>>139685817
Funny thing about that pic is that only Madoka has a canon blood type (which is A).
>>
>>139680281
i literally have 0 clue what my bloodtype is
>>
>>139680281
Because they're weird fucking idiots.
>>
>>139685749
No I didn't.

My blood type though is another story.
>>
It's just like horoscope shit is to the west
>>
>>139680281
It is the stereotype personality prediction
A = Neat freak, OCD
B = Slob asshole
O = Nice guy/ Doormat
AB = Oddball/ Autist

I think Homu should be AB and Analyaka should be A, though.
>>
>>139680402
>Real question though is why do so characters all have such rare blood types?
Blood types are rather evenly distributed among the Japanese compared to other peoples, so even B and AB aren't that rare.
>>
>>139683636
Did you sleep through your biology classes or something?
>>
>>139680281
Feels good to be blood type Homu.
>>
>>139687142
>analyaka
Is this your epic new meme after redditgahara?
