lol aww some of these made me really lol to my self, It sad but a lot of these true haha i also notice that..
1. All Japanese girls with flat chests are always annoyed at their best friend who has big boobs, ( just weird to me)
2. Main character guys in anime usually follow this theme, one perverted guy friend, and one girl friend, either love interest, kicks your but, or you protect her all the time.
3. The mysterious transfer student usually has a secret.
4. Apparently it is normal for girls to invite girls to an open bath house, or go with the guys after being invited by them.

Would say more but most of them where already said with me laughing at them going omg so true XD just a few i noticed

1. They are obsessed with 'moe' and 'bishojo'
2. There is a huge amount of gender inequality in Japan (ended up doing this as a final for IB Sociology)
3. Panty shots are essential. And somehow skirts always flip.

1.) A school will often be closing right after a student graduates or be mostly devoid of student save on room.(Sakura Trick and Non Non Biyori respectively)

2.) Americans in Japan are fluent in Japanese and even in private will speak Japanese to other Americans. (I'm looking at you Detective Conan!)

3.) The perverted loser trope guy will get a harem, as long as he is headstrong and willing to protect his friends(who're almost all female) no matter the cost. (Highschool DxD, this is you)

4.) The most important and interesting part of your life is high school.. (Pretty much every anime)

5.) Japan has a severe murder problem, with one occurring nearly everyday. Each murder is done in a elaborate way to throw off suspicion. More often than not the case will be solved within the day ending in the confession of the killer. (Once again, Detective Conan)

6.) If you're in a group of four friends including yourself, one of you is going to die. Everyone that lives will have motive for killing said person. (Seriously Conan? Again?)

7.) Time moves really weird in Japan. In the time it takes to advance from little to no internet, adults being clueless with computers and mostly pay phones to all adults can use the internet and computers well and everyone has smart phones......no one has aged. (Just take a guess.)

1. If you're an important person, you sit next to the window in your class.
2. Incest is wincest.
3. If a guy is in an awkward predicament such as walking in on a girl changing, no matter if it is his fault or not, he will be decked by the girl or some other character. Bonus points if the girl doesn't bother locking the door or he knocked already and didn't get a response initially.

Having just viewed episode 17 of Index II earlier tonight, I learned this apparently doesn't apply when it is women and not girls.

To further shoot the trope, they even had a plausible explanation for why the bathroom door wasn't locked.

1. It's impossible for people to see a girl's panties if she's sitting with her knees pulled to her chest in a mini-skirt.

2. Every group of people will end up having three girls and two boys. Unless everyone is a girl.

3. Every girl will become a lesbian if separated from boys for any period of time.

4. Moving from Tokyo to the country makes you the most interesting thing in a 100 mile radius.

5. High school students never do anything more than kiss. Hand holding is penultimate.

6. Apathy + a kind heart make you the coolest person in the classified universe.

7. As soon as you fall in love, you emit waves of pheromones attracting countless alternate mates.

8. Purple hair is black hair.

9. Declaring your love is not a big deal and will be forgotten about immediately.

10. Fat people all have a special talent or ability.

11. Falling in love in high school is akin to mating for life.

Japanese people get severe fevers and cold symptoms if they are rained on a little bit because Japanese rain is apparently completely riddled with viruses.

In Japan:

1. As long as you believe in a set of morals, you are destined to correct the wrongs of others.

2. Internal hemorrhaging is cured by getting some rest. If you struggle to stay awake, however, it can make you stronger.

3. If you protect or help someone, they will love you. Even if they are disgusted by you.

4. School fairs happen annually at all schools. The available attractions at all of these school fairs are a maid cafe, a music concert, a movie screening, food booths, and a haunted house. There are no exceptions.

5. Everyone participates in a yearly summer festival that features target shooting, gold fishing, takoyaki, candied apples, and fireworks. EVERYONE attends.

6. If a girl likes you, she will knit you something for Christmas.

7. If a guy likes you, he will choose you over at least 2 of his other love interests.

8. Sexy men are shiny.

9. Sexy women are bouncy.

10. Once a man finally chooses one of his many love interests, there is no way that he will change his mind and you were destined to be together.

Don't forget the class play! No prewritten plays allowed except Romeo and Juliet or Snow White.

1) Japanese school cultural fairs are as big as American school sporting events

2) If you are a "Imōto" (little sister) in Japan...beware

3) Japanese society really wishes that natural hair colors were not limited to black, brown, and blonde

4) Anime in Japan is as big as Hollywood films/television in the US

5) Angel Beats' interpretation of what happens after death is correct! I believe it!
