    That's not what he said.
    Sure, 18 is considered adult in most places but he simply said adult, and since the subject at hand is 28 let's use that number.

    In the real world there are people that due to hormonal problems look like teenagers even when they're already in their 30s. Those people can do whatever the fuck they want, they are adults even though they may look younger than that. They are fully aware of the implications of their actions. They can give true consent.
    Now you also have kids that look like old people, not older kids, old people (I forgot the name of the disease). Those kids are still kids, even though they look 60 they don't have the experience or development to be fully aware of the sexual implications. Those cannot give true consent.

    For example, a few years ago some country passed or tried to pass a law that prohibited women with A cup to appear in porn movies because the sight of a flat-chest was too close to a child to somepeople and it would be considered child porn, and that is stupid.
    So the discussion we need to be having is not so much how the characters look but how they act. Does Tatsumaki act like a kid? Then that's creepy. Does she act like an adult? Then that's cool. This method is for fictional characters only, btw, not for real people.

    Hikkikomori is so common in Japan they have a word for it.
    There are plenty of anime/manga that deal with that, like Welcome to the NHK!, but if it's not the main subject of the series it's usually translated as "a shut-in" or something along those lines.

    Btw, the term weeboo is something that needs to die. Native-english-speakers from the United States need to learn more than one fucking language and culture.

    Thanks! Since it was never explained in the show I was only taking a guess. I was close apparently lol.

    Weebs aren't about a real understanding of the language though. It's basically just a weird obsession with key tropes and stereotypes. Like those kids that would speak in English or broken Japanese cliche phrases and add a desu at the end. I'm all for people learning other languages. He'll I'm still learning.

    The thing is, from my experience, when you get enough language/culture exposure you start using words and expressions from that language just because it's the word that pops into mind.
    Walk around Europe, for example, and you'll hear the youth talking in their native language and then suddently an english word or expression, perfectly translatable, that they pick on either in class or some movie/tv show/videogame.

    Yes, this can be annoying, I have a friend that back in high scholl went trough a phase where he would say an english word in every sentence he spoke, glad that is over. But this is a normal phenomenon. You don't have to be fluent in the language or even activily be learning the language to assimilate words and expressions. So having a derrogatory word for people going through a normal process of culture/language mixing is proof that the United States need a better focus on getting kids to know more than one language, specially when you have such a high percentage of spanish-speaking latinos in the country. How is spanish class not a norm in your schools, along side english and math? It baffles me.

    I see your point. But Weeb isn't for the normal every day folks though. It's an extreme end of people who are interested in Japanese culture. Basically the people that think they can live like an anime character, which is often not how real Japanese people live. It's fine to get a jump start in interest into the culture through media but people don't always take the steps to actually learn the difference. But that's a problem across the board when everyone is getting access to media but are still far removed from the culture/country. People can pick up the wrong things and don't adjust view points.

    I can only guess that making Spanish mandatory would have many people clutching their pearls. Spanish, French, German and the rare schools that offer any Asian languages are a blessing though. I'd wish they'd have the interest in offering any of the Native American languages as a course.


    At any rate getting off topic lol. I forgot which thread this was. Long story short. Not knocking people's attempts to learn another language. Hikkikomori was just a term that got thrown around too much in Neo Yokio without explanation.

    I've seen weeb/weeboo used mainly against people who dropped stuff like kawai, tsugoi or baka in their speech, not usually against people trying to live like anime chracters. And it was always in anime/manga forums or videogame forums, which where about japanese IPs. It always annoyed me.

    And learning a second or even a third language at school is the norm for most countries, the US has some serious catching up to do in that regard. But you are right this is getting too off topic. :p
    I do recommend checking the anime Welcome to NHK if you want some more insight at how hikkikomori survive in Japan, how they can get to that point and their daily lives. Once you've seen the phenomenon in a more in-depth way like that you'll notice it popping up or being referenced in many more anime, most likely those set in the modern day Japan.

    Hey, i don't even like regular loli, yes, Tatsumaki is sexy, that's undeniable, but she's often portraied more like a short flat young girl (young means 16/17/18), not a child. That said, i still prefer way more Fubuki. I was just saying that the law doesn't care if you look like a child or an adult, you just need to be 18. That's it, nothing more to say, it's not an opinion.

    I thought this forum was above discussion like this; but then again, there was that one time where people were discussing Blackbeard's chest hair type in the General Blackbeard Thread, so what do I know.....

    Hey everyone, stop being perverts and get the discussion back in line and age appropriate. And by age appropriate, I don't mean "safe for kids", I mean "tolerable for adults". PS - don't care if you're not an adult.

    There are estimated 240,000 hikikomori in Japan and triple that number if you include sub-hikikomori (ones that are shut-ins in their house but still do occasionally go outside for essential needs)

    Yes, it's an actual real social problem.

    At first, the discussion was about why mangakas (and lots of other things in Japan) are into pedophile stuff, but it turned into lusty guys basically saying they'd bang Tatsumaki

    We don't know

    Please folks, stop asking this question, or just check out r/onepunchman and if you can't find it there or on Murata's twitter--- then no one knows when it will be released.

    It could just as likely start in December. Wouldn't get my hopes up.
