For example, the anime characters often help out other people in need and stuff.

Is that really reflect the Japanese society? Or its just in anime? I've never been to Japan before so I'm just curious.

It's just the anime.

Or not.

I've noticed this too. A high school in an anime is a lot less reckless than a regular public high school.

Then again it's an anime.

Nothing is realistic in anime.
Do you honestly think anime reflects the actual Japanese society? Ha, funny.

No it's just in anime, sadly... ^.^'' the real world is nothing like anime, much harsh in reality? Wish we could live in an anime-like world, but we live in a full-of-hatred area *sighs* If japan was actually like that, i'll probably go move there.

There are people this nice in the real world, just as there are people as noble, selfless or courageous (or ruthless, selfish and demented). The reason unusual and exceptional people tend to show up in anime stories is because the characters/personalities in a story are chosen, are a created group for dramatic purpose, and are not random (as they would be in real life). You would get similar (seemingly unrealistic) results if you looked at a group of real world Olympic athletes and thought 'are people really this dedicated and talented?' or at real world SEAL team members and thought 'are real people really this full of willpower?' So basically the personalitites of characters in anime do not reflect Japanese society (which is full of all different random personalities) but do reflect selected types of individuals/personalities thrown together for dramatic purposes.

Actually I've had a bunch of people who visited japan tell me that the people there are real nice. More humble than anywhere else they've been.
But then again, every country has their nice and rude people.

Because if they were mean, it'd be boring and probably piss you off. It's good to have good bunch of nice characters and then a few douchebags here and there.

Also, I doubt it. Japan isn't the magical land of sparkly happiness and beautiful women, sorry. I mean, I haven't been to Japan to myself, but come on.

Varies by situation I suppose, a friend of mine left her purse on a bench once and came back the next day to retrieve it. Nothing was missing, if it was most other places it would have been gone methinks.

Well it's going to reflect the actual Japan in one way or another.
Japanese culture, etc.
And it could be based on what it's actually like there, you never now.

It may reflect some things about their society, but I doubt the people over there are that nice.
