Why is it so common for characters to drink beer first thing in the morning, does Japan know that's a sign of alcoholism?

Japs don't care about becoming alcoholics

I do it too, but I also hate my job and the city I'm living in. Living in a megalopolis like Tokyo while working a shitty job must be terrible, so I can see why Japs would drink all the time.

I'm more intrigued by their acceptance to go out for drinks after work on a regular basis

Yes, that's the point. Misato is an alcoholic.
>>
It doesn't happen that often

>>158803485
Everyone drinks in Japan. It's so normalized and commonplace. Drinking with coworkers regularly is accepted and expected.
>>
It's simply product placement.

There's nothing inherently wrong with drinking in the morning.

How is that a weird thing? Or do you mean the drinking with co-workers part rather than drinking after work in general? It's just the business culture of the country.

Japanese businesses are borderline totalitarian. If you join a Japanese company (or the government as a civil servant), you're not just getting a job. You're getting a job, job advancement (your salary and position increase due to seniority, not talent or experience), a circle of friends and perhaps even a husband or wife along the way. Perhaps paternalistic would be a better way to describe it than totalitarian.

That's pretty freaking common in most parts of the world anon. Having beer for breakfast is a universal sign of an alcoholic, I guess not in Japan though.

I like how companies hire cute OLs and force them to go to mixers with depressed salarymen after work so that they eventually marry each other.

I don't. Hiring women purely for their looks rather than because they're productive workers is a shitty practice. I like my women skilled and competent as well as beautiful.

Its not like the US where they hire them because they're cute and give them actual jobs. Most of the time these women they hire are answering phones, making copies, or doing coffee runs.

Misato was supposed to be a pathetic christmas cake alcoholic. It's not considered normal.
