If you want to import and read or watch raws of dramas, movies, anime, manga and LNs; If you want to play untranslated VNs and games or just chat with some nips, then learn Japanese. Remember, you can do it.

What are your thoughts on Japan's bedroom shut-ins known as hikikomori?


Is it that hard to at least clean up the clutter?!



When you're very depressed, yes.



Been there, done that. Best 4 years of my life.

I want to go back.


That's dangerous. I tried cleaning up once in my hikki-phase and I slipped on a magazine, kicking one of my book-stashes, which collapsed on top of me. They were hardcovers.

Besides, what's the point?

The Jewish population in Japan may be tiny (IT'S UNDER 9000!), but there's a long history of exchange between Jewish and Japanese culture. Here's some historical background and a list of stand-out Jewish characters in anime, manga, and light novels.

The History of Jews and Japan

Kobe Jewsimage source

Judaism and Japan are two words you don't normally think of together (if you're not coming up a list of proper nouns beginning with the letter J, anyway). Japan's Jewish population numbers around 2000, only .0016% of the Japanese population, with just two synagogues in the whole country. Yet there's actually quite a bit of history regarding the relationship between Japan and the Jewish people.

When Japan opened up its borders to the outside world in 1853, Jews were among the many foreign settlers. Jewish communities developed in Yokohama and Nagasaki in the late 19th century, but following the Russo-Japanese War and the 1923 Kanto earthquake, Japan's Jewish population had centered itself primarily in Kobe (today, one of two cities in Japan with an active synagogue, the other being Tokyo). The Jews of Kobe came from many places but mainly from Russia; many of the original Kobe Jews were freed Russian prisoners from the 1905 Revolution.

Chiune SugiharaSource

In the 1930s and '40s, Japan allied itself with the Nazis. For all the many horrific actions of Imperial Japan however, they were surprisingly not very anti-semitic considering their military alliances. The infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an anti-semitic hoax document the Nazis used to promote conspiracy theories about Jews taking over the world, was published in Japan at this time, but the reaction was very different from in Europe: without the embedded traditional European Christian attitudes associating Jews with the Devil, the response of many Japanese leaders was more along the lines of "Hey, we wanna take over the world too! Let's get the Jews to help us!" Japan refused to enact policies of anti-semitic discrimination despite pressure from Germany, and the Japanese occupied quarter of Shanghai served as a rePost too long.

FMA Fritz Lang

Most of the Jewish characters in anime tend to be actual historical figures. The half-Jewish filmmaker Fritz Lang makes a memorable appearance in the Fullmetal Alchemist movie. Ironically, in the movie he's a parallel universe incarnation of the man whose homunculus turns into the Fuhrer in the Elrics' home universe.

Jesus (Saint Young Men)

Saint Young Men Jesus

Can't forget Jesus! There's a number of Biblical anime out there, but Saint Young Men's charmingly irreverent portrayal of Jesus and Buddha as roomies definitely sticks out.

Anne Frank (Anne no Nikki: Anne Frank Monogatari and Anne No Niki)

Anne Frank

Yes, there's actually two anime movies based on Anne Frank's diary. Anne Frank's story seems to hold particular fascination in Japan. She also appears briefly as a magical girl in the final episode of Madoka Magica (you read that right).

Hitler!?! (Adolf)


We're speaking strictly manga-canon as opposed to actual history. Tezuka's manga about Adolf Hitler proposes that Hitler was part Jewish and his anti-semitism was a form of self-loathing. Needless to say, this isn't historically accurate.

The Villains (Angel Cop)

Both the English and Japanese versions of Angel Cop are terrible in different ways. The English dub is just ridiculous. The Japanese version, meanwhile, is downright offensive, making its ultimate villains… the Jews (the official subtitles changed dialogue to avoid the plotpoint; see the video above for a comparison of "official" vs accurate subs). Weirdly enough, screenwriter Sho Aikawa later did FMA.

Could I attain a girlfriend/wife in Japan without speaking Japanese? She doesn't have to be extremely attractive.


Yes. Most Japanese women prefer foreigners.

>remove US bases so we can make more room for refugees



isn't it common in the asian region to leave a little bit of food and drink at the end as etiquette? like it's a way of saying, "your bounty is plentiful" or something like that, as if consuming it all would insinuate that the portions were measly or pathetic.




>not civilized

Holy fucking shit you absolute geezer, at least they were on the right side of the war and didn't start bending to the Jew's will until just recently.

>pic 2

I don't understand why anybody would think this is okay but it actually happened to a friend of the other way around. His family lived in Japan when he was a kid and random Japanese would just take pictures with "the pretty blond boy".


I've seen it multiple times in France but only once or twice in Germany. In both cases it was locals doing it. Also it's not to try the product before buying it. One you open it, you pay.

Also, is there any hype for this movie at all in Japan? It's hard to tell from (5)2ch, since their Godzilla threads seem to be spammed to hell.

What do japanese anons think about niggers? I would imagine most of their racial hatred would be towards chinks and koreans (and maybe jews? are japanons awoken to the human-shaped blight?) but considering their government is now encouraging (((immigrants))) because tokyo bugmen are finally collapsing under the weight of their grandparents and great grandparents, i could see nog-anguish being more relevant.

Also, how come Japan has so much nigblood? is this an error?






>human-shaped blight?

Unfortunately no, they're mostily indifferent towards holocauster™ which is a good start.

They hate koreans the most (same way whites hate jews, easiest way to explain jews to Japanese is to say they're like koreans but worse), then indians for being filthy and stinky subhumans with no manners, people from Osaka and Okinawa hate nigger apes Zog sent there to rape local women and children even thought emperor offered amerimutts to send the most beautiful women they can find as spoils of war that the faggot mcarthur and his kike friends declined.



>people from Osaka and Okinawa hate nigger apes

interesting, more info please? i'm only really up to speed on (((tokyo))). do you know anything about the genetics chart above? and does 2ch know about jews?



There are lots of niggers in Japan. They run this bars where you get drugged and mugged. If you refuse them they start fight. They are also used in Japanese blacked.com by yakuza to make money.

Japan's love for Indian films continues to rise

Akshay Kumar-starrer Padman, released in Japan on December 2018, raked in $671,455.64 (Rs 4.78 crore approximately).

The film market in Japan is not only home to Hollywood titles and to some extent Chinese and Korean films, but Indian movies are making a mark as well. And it is not just Bollywood that is charming its way into the hearts of the Japanese audience. Regional films from the southern market too have a huge fan following.

Talking to Moneycontrol, Pranab Kapadia, President of Marketing and Distribution for UK, Europe & Africa Operations, Eros International Plc, said, "Japan, like any other non-traditional market, is important as it opens new avenues for monetisation of content that has already been exploited amongst core Bollywood audiences."

"Already we have seen Rajnikanth films have a good following amongst mainstream Japanese audiences, now that is translating to select Bollywood films as well. This is a good sign for the industry," he added.

Akshay Kumar-starrer Padman, released in Japan on December 2018, raked in $671,455.64 (Rs 4.78 crore approximately). Another Bollywood flick Bajrangi Bhaijaan starring Salman Khan, $196,062.46 (Rs 1.39 crore). The film released in Japan on January 18 this year.

A general topic thread to discuss japanese citizenship and all it entails whatever that may be…

>Do you want Japanese citizenship?

Not really since I would rather work in the United states… I will definitely be making 3x more here than if I were to teach english in japan… I have no interest being an english teacher ANYWHERE at all, really.

>Do you want to marry somebody with japanese citizenship?

Yes of course I want a waifu. Speaking of this, does a woman lose her japanese citizenship if she gains US citizenship? How would cohabitation work?

You should take your lack of capitalization and proper punctuation back there you cunt, you'll fit right in with all the other brain dead retards.


Indian here. Can any anon help me how to get a Japanese visa?



So follow the rules. Sounds like a better deal than getting butt raped and given aids by Tyrone.

wtf is this brown drink i've seen so many times? is it juice or something? i think i only saw it once in real life but it seems common enough in anime that it might be a real thing. haven't been able to find anything by searching "lol what's that brown shit japs drink". maybe ice tea? i've almost always seen it depicted as being in a large clear rectangular container in the fridge.



it might be tea.


oolong tea


Doesn't it literally say "TEA" in big bold english letters on a container filled with a similar liquid in the same anime?
