What's up nerds. I'm joining my University's Japanese society in order to help me learn japanese, find a japanese gf and to find some people to travel with me to Japan. The problem is, is that I'm unsure whether I'll have much in common with them.

What can I do to help myself fit in? Do I have to play Touhou? Or watch anime?

I'm back bloak. First off if you don't know Japanese or aren't in a Uni class learning Japanese be perpared for yourself to feel an awkwardness of being a gaijin amoung forieners in your own land. You might feel as if they feel socially burdend by you. These thoughts aren't always true, but only your own insecurities coming to play (Sometimes). Either way you're going to end up on the frindges of the social circle time to time, but not always. If you don't know Japanese or aren't learning it through Uni no Japanese woman or girl will have anything to do with you as they study outside of Japan. It sounds rediculious, but its the truth. It really is about Japanese pride. Their pride is something real in the stereo type.

Part 2
I highly reccomend you not talk or get into anime when speaking with the Japanese. Most of the Japanese population doesn't really like anime. One Peice and Ghibli movies are almost the only thing tolerable in conversation. The same could be said for Japanese cinema. They know Akira Kurowsawa and Onibaba, but any of the Japanese studying abraud mostly will have only watched American tv and movies.

If you're going in completely blind to knowing any Japanese than you are bound to pick up a bit of the oral speach, but nothing in reading or writing. Your own fellow countrymen will be the only ones cordinating a plan to go with you to Japan. Of course the Japanese friends you make may meet you in your trip in Japan if you weren't a fucking autist Otaku.

Do some research on the history of Japan by reading. Read about the Jonon all the way up to 1970's post ww2 Japan. Watch a butt load of every kind of Japanese movies while you're at it. It will reveal part of their syche as a society to you thus making it easier to understand them and they you.The last thing is that Japanese women only date beta men. I'm not saying if you're not beta you xan't date them, but it is certianly a struggle of cultures more so than you would imagine. Beta white men that are either scrawny akward dorks or beta chubby balding dudes are more alpha than the majority of Japanese men. On top of that those men are more likely to have sex/date Japanese women than any handsome outgoing buff alpha white man. It's seen as homosexual to be strong in Japan not mention animalistic to be so alpha. Good luck. You will need it.

Draw Anime and Manga on your tablet, and spend your days perfecting your art and playing superior Japanese games. (Disgaea, Final Fantasy, Persona series)

Jesus, it's going to be more complicated than I thought it would be. I'm not really into anime apart from a few shows like Legend of Galactic Heroes and Akira however I do have an interest for Japanese films and history.

Perhaps I would stand a better chance of just going a couple of times and meeting someone who doesn't speak Engrish very well and offer to help them if they can help me learn Japanese.

Also you've given me some hope with the dating side of things, I'm pretty scrawny; 5'10 but with a decent looking face and am studying maths so most people consider me a nerd.

Thanks for the advice senpa- ... err I mean m8.

>> No.11447279

I never went looking for a Japanese gf, but I was practicly in the same boat as you aside from scrawny. We're brothers. Let me know when you're in Japan and what Uni, because I will be there for two weeks this next summer. I thought you really were british like me until that end of your post.

I am British, and I'm at Warwick University. I'd like to go next summer although I may wait until I have a better grasp on the language. How much is it going to cost you?

You don't even like anime or other "otaku" hobbies that much and yet you still manage to come off as a weeb.
