Quote from KaoriNite
are Japanese schools really strict about not letting students dye their hair, have piercings, etc?

Not just Japanese schools. Asian schools in general disallow such things.

Quote from KaoriNite
do people really confess in letters?


Confessing in letters isn't strictly a Japanese thing. People will do that no matter where they are from.

the mangas that i read make it seem like in high school that is the main way to confess to someone. maybe it's just where i went to school, but when i was in high school i don't remember anyone confessing in a letter. although people would write love letters once they were a couple (i do remember people writing letters to confess in elementary and middle school, but not many)

It's lightning, but it's from the sequel... not the main game.

I didn't have the time to read all the posts, but I'd like to know if there are really vending machines with hot coffee or tea in them.

Yes, they have canned hot coffee... like the normal hot coffee machines at every university and quick stop places in the US.

Those two are pale in comparison with other stuff that is sold in vending machines in Japan.
Take a look at this.

The degree of corruption. Especially how the manga used real faces.

And other manga have it too. I know it's manga, but where do they get some of their ideas...

I have a few questions too! How common are foreigners in Japan? Is it like China where there are basically no foreigners unless you're in some major city and even there are very few? Is English a mandatory language in grade school?
