Manga has taught me about Japanese culture what Hollywood has taught me about American culture.

Being attracted to children is only noble and morally admissible if you have the patience to save your self for them until they grow up.

They barely laugh 'hahaha' but instead go 'fufufu' and 'hehehe'.
Foreign people have blue eyes.
Boys can look like girls and still get popular (bishies).
Despite Japan being all tech and stuff, most schools still use textbooks and don't have laptops.
I've haven't read a manga where they've used chopsticks.
Apparently Japanese girls have the hots for you if you are a vampire, they're not afraid or scared, they'll tell no one about it and yeah.
Cross-dressing is super normal!
Most Japanese guys have pointy chins.

There is always that one guy with the emo cut. eek

Girls leaving in vehicles tend to like it when guys chase after them on bicycles.

Bathrooms don't have locks and if you walk into one you will see a nude girl or they will walk in on you.
Either way it's your fault and you will be slapped/punched/kicked.

Aliens are common in Japan - they always choose Japan, and can speak Japanese fluently.
If the alien gender is female, she will look 99.99% like a human girl + extremely cute, beautiful. She will fall in love with a human boy.
. For the boy, he will be extremely normal, sometimes considered ugly, and never interested in the alien girl in the first place.

In the future, everyone will speak Japanese.
Any foreign language can be understood as pera pera pera.

When a girl likes a guy, she MUST cook something for him. In fact, giving him homemade food, she is almost giving him the deepest recesses of her being.

-Power is directly proportional to trauma.
-Porn only exists in paper form.
-Any dirty books will be stashed beneath ones bed.
-Internet porn has not yet been invented.
-Hot men are to be shared by all women equally and regardless of their opinion cannot date any single girl.
-It is impossible to fall over without someone being groped or having their panties revealed.
-Only 5% of Japan are normal humans/of Japanese origin.
-Being getting a cold and getting cold are the same thing.
-Even the strongest of flu can be overcome in a single day of rest.
-If someone gets a cold, they must be taken to the hospital
-The Japanese government relies on high school students to protect Japan from world destroying monsters.
-Hurting someone's nakama will lead to instantaneous death.
-Photographic memory is a highly common trait (even though it doesn't exist in real life)

Quote from ShadowSakura
-if you fall in loe with your sibling (which happens often in japan) there is a 90% chance that you are not blood related


Huh~ Here we go:

*You just have to be foreigner (mostly American) to greet everyday people by kissing their mouth. Btw, they know you never wear undergarments.

*My mom can always get married "CASUALLY" to the dad of my long time crush.

*Get a boyfriend/have love life is the most important thing in the world, and the main reason for being at school.

*It's an important goal to have sex before 18 and pretty normal to do a lot of H things and still call yourself virgin (those physical conceptions/technical definitions ┐┐") .

*You can be the most useless being in the world, then you discover your hidden power (supernatural or not); suddenly, everyone is chasing you, and when it comes to defend yourself you can't use it (and throughout the series you end up being even useless than before), but you can always rely on the powerful bishie who's madly in love with you. Source> Historical Shoujo

*Don't worry if you're a guy in the same situation as stated before, your unconditional friends **cough**servants**cough** always can stand up for you. Source> Shounen

*Characters who are supposed to be Japanese, but clearly resemble anything except Japanese.

*EVERYONE has enviable bodies and look super nice in swimsuits!

*The perfect couple is the shortie, innocent, and cute girl with a super tall, good-looking and good-at-everything guy.

*It's enough to be strong-willed in life

*If you're in a love triangle with a black kuro-haired guy don't overwork, in the you'll get friendzoned. So dye your hair asap! (Considering the fact that blond guys actually exist there)

I am sure most of what you mentioned is not Japanese culture, but otaku culture.

And im pretty sure that it was obvious from the start it was that kinda topic. A joke on what is often used in mangas.
Ive learned that in every school in japan there is a elite guy/girl, top grades and looks, and a great personality among people, but is sometimes a facade.

-> Strongest among people are either scrawny teenagers or extremely old.
-> Middle age men are either perverted jobless or simple salary-men without any job description.
-> Japan is very unsafe. You can't walk anywhere without punks ganging up on you to extort money or if you are a girl, to feel you up.
-> Boys become pros in sports, go on a quest to be best fighter while girls are just happy being a housewife. Nobody goes to college unless one is going to be genius scientist. I wonder where all these salaryman come from.

I've learned that, in Japanese schools, people of similar attraction levels do NOT engage in relationships. It's either:

A. Perfect, idolized young men with the most normal, curve-less, and easily over-looked girl.


B. The dorky troublemaker with a hot head, stupid face, and an almost lethal allergy toward girls -- with at least five beautiful, buxom women fawning over him, one of which is a little girl, and another of which he's related to in some way.
