    Calling manga and anime comic books and cartoons makes sense. It's weird, but makes sense. The rest don't make sense to complain about.

      Ironically, having learned Japanese several years ago I've become way more inclined to stop using Japanese words when speaking English. Manga is comics, etc.

      I wonder if actual Japanese people find it weird when people say "You're from Japan? That's awesome, I love anime." It'd be like if someone said "Oh you're from America? That's awesome, I love cartoons."

        No, they don't think it's weird. They know that anime is one of their biggest cultural exports. They aren't stupid.

            Not exactly. Manga is extremely popular and much more than anime. Anime is shown late at night and a lot of it is seen as more of an advertisement for different manga series. Watching anime not aimed for kids is more niche, but only the more perverted shows are looked down on as creepy.

        What also helps is that Japanese is inherently a language that fills in the gaps in the context. Like, because of their language works you don't have to specify that you love Japanese cartoons, the implication is inherently made from the context unless it is stated otherwise that you mean Japanese cartoons. So, telling to a jap that you love cartoons would be as valid as telling to American you love American cartoons, because of the way that language works that gap is filled in by default, because you aren't saying anything else to challenge that assumption. And if you meant actually to tell a Jap that love French cartoons, well, then it's not their misunderstanding, you just can't read kuuki.

      Yes, one that doesn't get used the way you use it. It's basically the pop-culture derivative term for what shinobi were - the people who practiced ninjutsu. So don't use it.

    >Manga is a specific category of comic books. This is just being more specific. Same with "superhero comics" and "graphic novels" "comic strip" all have useful connotations in communication.
    >I agree, you could say "Japanese Cartoons," but Anime is already so ubiquitous internationally you'd just be saying more syllables for no reason. Also, it comes from the english word animation, so you can feel good about it ok, my little western warrior?
    >Ramen, again, is a type of noodle and its preparation. Sphagetti, lo mein, ramen, bahn pho, etc.
    >Shuriken a unique weapon to that part of the world, so we use the word they do. Ninja star is baby speak. Do you call boomerangs "Curvy Return Sticks"?
    >Onigiri has more than rice in it. Also its a triangle most of the time.

      It's lost its usefulness. Pseuds think it means "comic I'm not embarrassed to tell people I've read" and people that know what it actually means still use it so the field is muddied and no one knows which way it's being used without prior knowledge of what's being referenced. It's much more useful to just call it all "comics".

      is a specific category of comic books.
      It isn't though. Comics and manga cover many different genres. American comics used to be distributed like Manga in collected anthologies. You could make an argument about tone but French comics are different from both and we don't use a unique term for those. Calling it Manga just makes it sound more exotic and marketable

      • 2 months ago

        I didn't say "genre" I said Category. Its simply a utility for sorting. Manga have more stylistic coherence and specific fanbase than french comics do in the west.

        If there were as many fans dedicated specifically to exclusively French comics, the term "Bande Dessinée" would become just as useful of a term.

        Now that "manhua" and "manhwa" have entered the vernacular, the term "manga" is fairly useful when referring to comics from a certain place. Manga is not the only type of japanese comic, either. There is also gekiga, but that term is essentially interchangeable with seinen now.

      This is just Shibuya. Young people go there, lots of foreigners, to go clubbing. People frick around and get into fights. At the end of the night you fall asleep on the road and no one bothers you. It's pretty basic gaijin shit, but it's really not all that bad. At least there are no Black folk like in Kabuki-cho or Roppongi. Either way, the chances you get actually hurt in these areas is almost zero and you can avoid them entirely by not going to basic b***h club/bar spots.

        Hell no. Tourist spots are clean. Smaller cities and villages are clean. Suburbs are clean. Big city centers are dirty and full of literal trash. It's the same everywhere. Japan is no exception to that.
