Based on my expirience with Japanese women in real life they can tend to be a little moe. When they get excited their voices can become cutesy and high pitched but thats about where the similarities end.

The best way I can think of it anime stereotypes are no different then the TV sterotypes in other countries. There might be a speck of truth within them but don't expect Japanese women to be like a different species. Women are women and people are people no matter where you're from. Japanese women probably have more in commen with the women from where you're from than differences.

Well, a class from Japan came to visit my Japanese Class a few weeks ago. From what I can tell, there were a lot of valid stereotypes. There was the cute and outgoing "loli" one, and the shy, quiet "moe" one. And there was one who seemed like she did not want to be there at all, by the look she had on her face. I determined her stereotype as "tsundere."
But the other girls seemed normal.
I'm not saying this is all true, but this is what I witnessed.

I'm Japanese, and I go to Japan every summer to visit my friends and family there, and let me tell you... Some people are normal but some people can go to the extreme. You will actually see girls like that in Japan, and a lot of them are in some sort of SM addiction.

Edit: I forgot to say, my friends in Japan are mostly the party animals. Most people who come to North America etc as an exchange student are here to study and not to party.

oh... people being shy, mean, or a bit cutesy... I see this literally everywhere, not just in Japan. Every society has these type of personalities... not just Japan.

Currently living in Japan and people just act like people. However, I will say that most of the girls are more submissive (non sexual) and agreeable, meaning they don't really have much say on things. Trust me, I've dated a few girls here. Nice girls, but no real personality. However, there are some completely different girls here. One which I waiting to get back from NZ (留学生). She is still kinda submissive, but she always gives me that look like she's going to tear off my balls when I make fun of her. (all in good fun though).

So there is definitely an interesting mix of girls out here. Non of which you'll ever see on anime and some you might. (however rare it is).

But I will say one thing... the damn wardrobes and clothing people wear here is about accurate with animes (disregarding fantasy anime).

Depends, we are all mostly sexual deviants inside, and explore our bodies like normal people do and grab chests randomly like people grabbing pinwheels. When you look at a group of Asian girls, they might squeal if they see a hot guy, basically the same with a group of guys, except instead of squealing they usually just stare, and maybe even get a bit red. That is life, and it can be like an anime, depending on the seriousness of it.

Not to sound like I'm bragging, but girls tend to giggle and stare at me like a piece of meat when I fix myself up nicely. It's a shame, one girl was literally staring at me for 4 stations on the yamanote line. I should have talked to her, but no... I had a girlfriend who I then proceeded to break up with the next day (she actually brought up the brake although I asked what she wanted to do with it, the relationship that is).

Oh well, I will get my chances again... Tokyo is a really small, big city.

Yeah, they do. They also all have either massive breasts, or none at all. It's not uncommon to accidentally grab them either, or end up in the 69 position when you bump into each other.


This is hilarious.
